   Jan-12-20 Ju Wenjun vs A Goryachkina, 2020 (replies)
CaptainEvans: Not a classic!
   Dec-28-19 Moshe Czerniak
CaptainEvans: Harry Golombek said of Czerniak that he was the type of player who believed that if he could only surprise his opponent in the opening he would always win. Against the very best he was unsuccessful but he scored many a victory over lesser lights.
   Dec-28-19 M Czerniak vs I Bilek, 1971
CaptainEvans: Czerniak commented after the game that 4....a6 was too slow - better was 4...d5. 16.Ne5 with aim of Nd7, but after 16...Nc6 Czerniak now can't play Nd7 due to the Bd4 rejoinder. After the game, Bilek preferred 24...Qb2 where he reckoned he could still have drawn. 32....Rd5 was ...
   Dec-16-19 S Makarichev vs Kholmov, 1983
CaptainEvans: Black ruthlessly exploits the shortcomings of the Mackenzie Variation.
   Apr-06-19 NN vs Tarrasch, 1932 (replies)
CaptainEvans: 13.Qxh8 was very greedy
   Mar-25-19 Hartston vs J Richardson, 1983
CaptainEvans: What a great rook sac! Should be featured on game of the day!
   Jun-17-18 Short vs G Knapton, 1976 (replies)
CaptainEvans: I'm probably missing something but why can't Knapton play 13...Bxh3?

CaptainEvans: I still buy the newspaper, Ray. Your column always use to be by the obituary section - so that was a good marker to find your section! The first time I came across the new layout in the Times I panicked when I came to the obituaries as I thought "they" had axed your ...

CaptainEvans: Ray, I see from the above you wrote the obituary published in The Times today. It was very befitting for the geat man.
   Sep-11-08 Lokvenc vs Pachman, 1943 (replies)
CaptainEvans: "But my worst mishap came with the Austrian, Lokvenc. Playing a variation I had swotted up, I hardly looked at the board and in place of a correct seventh move, I made the eighth, which cost me a piece. After a bare five minutes' play, I had to resign." from Checkmate in Prague
