Albion 1959
Member since Aug-24-11 · Last seen Jan-01-21
Have not played competitve chess for seven years at the time of posting: Favourite players Fischer and Capablanca !!

   Albion 1959 has kibitzed 367 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-28-20 Stein vs Smyslov, 1972
Albion 1959: This game and the Kupriechik v Gipslis were contenders for the best game of the year. But surely Fischer's 6th match game against Spassky was on a par ? You could probably throw in a Tal game the same year as well !
   Nov-22-20 Hartston vs Ulf Andersson, 1975 (replies)
Albion 1959: A disappointment for Hartston, having worked so hard to save the game. Credit to Andersson for sticking at it, like water dripping on a stone, with limitless patience he eventually wears down Hartston's stubborn resistance. 123. Ra4+?? was where Hartston finally faltered - Ra7 ...
   Sep-12-20 Kasparov vs Carlsen, 2020 (replies)
Albion 1959: Their first game against each other in sixteen years. Surely with more rapid play contests these days, they could each other more often and give the chess-viewing public a treat ?
   Aug-27-20 Alekhine vs Capablanca, 1927 (replies)
Albion 1959: To Charles Sullivan. The Stockfish analysis is interesting and it injects fresh possibilities for white. I don't have Stockfish, nor do I claim to able to have anything like it's analytical power, but I suspect it's analysis could be flawed? Move 54: Rc1 allows the white king ...
   Aug-16-20 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
Albion 1959: Probably the best game from 1972. In spite of the errors. This type of endgame would make even a strong and far-ranging search engine blow a fuse. These types of game tend not feature in a "Best Games" collection, because they are too long and too difficult to annotate, so ...
   Aug-13-20 Tal vs Koblents, 1957 (replies)
Albion 1959: Mind-blowing chess ! 25: Bxb5!! Where did that one come from ?
   Aug-11-20 Kasparov vs Petrosian, 1983
Albion 1959: The new kid on the block, begins to take control of the old maestro and former champion. Having lost his first two games against TP, Kasparov powers ahead and the following year was challenging Karpov for the world title:
   Jul-30-20 Maroczy vs Rubinstein, 1908
Albion 1959: Their 3rd encounter, Maroczy takes the lead and had a plus score over Rubinstein until 1920. After that AR levelled up with that brilliant win in Gothenburg and then went on to amass a plus score of + 4 against Maroczy:
   Jul-30-20 Rubinstein vs Maroczy, 1920 (replies)
Albion 1959: This game appears in Irving Chernev's book Logical Chess Move By Move (Faber 1958) Game 33 page 237. He gives 12 pages on this one particular game. Chernev makes no comment on black's 20th move Bd7 - Unless I have missed something, why can't black play Bxc3 instead? Also on ...
   Jul-26-20 K Honfi vs Tal, 1972
Albion 1959: A brilliant imaginative player, who held the world title for barely one year and died at 55. The light that burns so brightly, burns for only half as long !!
