Canadian chesser: Hi All, To clarify, what I found really interesting about Engqvist on that game Fischer vs R Byrne, 1965 is that he says it was the ONLY time Fischer played the knight to d2 and not c3 "when the French Defence was on the agenda." (p. 133). And in this one time he LOST (as

Canadian chesser: <blacksburg> I wonder if you shouldn't ask for your 7 bits back. That sequence is just the start of the Cambridge Springs Defence of the QGD and completely legit for Black. According to Neil McDonald's guide to the QGD, it continues 5. e3 c6 6. Nf3 Qa5 7. Nd2 and then
   Apr-13-22 W Schmidt vs M Markus, 1961
Canadian chesser: Thank you <Teyss>, I was way wrong with both ideas. I was trying to do it visually without setting up a board and that will teach me! (BTW I have asked a question about Burn vs Tarrasch, 1898 that the puzzle solvers here might be able to help me with?)
   Apr-13-22 Burn vs Tarrasch, 1898
Canadian chesser: I was looking at Gerald Abraham's old _The Pan Book of Chess_ (1966 revised edition) again, and in particular this QGD game that is annotated in it in G.A.'s usual enlightening and elegantly-written way (pages 157 to 165). One problem I can't figure out with it is that at ...
   Apr-13-22 Topalov vs Karpov, 1998
Canadian chesser: Hi folks, I need to correct my post as in it I imply that Karpov was tempted by a pawn sacrifice to enter Topalov's queen-trap. But playing through the sequence starting from 12.Nd2 I can see that he wasn't "tempted" as the pawn capture was forced at that point. So I ...
   Mar-22-22 Euwe vs H Steiner, 1946
Canadian chesser: In his QGD book, Neil McDonald refers to this game as a good example of how the Rubinstein Attack vs the QGD can be refuted. (This Attack begins with 13.dxe5, and continues with the moves as in the game up to 15.f4 where Black has to be careful where he moves his queen to, ...
   Mar-05-22 Fischer vs Spassky, 1972 (replies)
Canadian chesser: Thanks <RookFile> for testing 14...Qb7 on a computer (I haven't graduated to computer-assisted study yet). I'm glad the result supports the gist of my post! Apropos this move, <rigel1503> has argued: <To me, Timman's problems stem from the pawn grab on c5 ...
   Feb-27-22 Kasparov vs Karpov, 1984
Canadian chesser: <Knight13> White definitely did not win. <Albums Dummyflap> is correct about the score of the end of this game being fictitious. See for proof. Kasparov wanted a draw and so the last move of the game is 25.Nxf6, a sham sacrifice (accepting means ...
   Sep-30-21 Capablanca vs Spielmann, 1927 (replies)
Canadian chesser: <N.O.F. NAJDORF>: Abrahams also provided that winning variation for White if Black tries Ra7 at move 19 instead of Rb8 as in the game. At the end of that variation, "Black, at the moment a piece to the good, is losing more than one piece" (page 139).
   Sep-29-21 Capablanca vs Vidmar, 1922 (replies)
Canadian chesser: Thanks <beatgiant>! I see that my suggestion is not a way out for Black now! To any reading my original post: there is a typo at the tenth line. Instead of "then ... P-QR3 16. QxQ RxQ 17. B-B6 R-K2" it should read "then ... P-QR3 16. QxQ RxQ 17. B-B6 R-R2". ...
