   Apr-09-21 I Rice vs W Donisthorpe, 1892 (replies)
 
DanQuigley: Reading Steinitz's comments, Black was just doomed from the get-go. There's not a word as to what Black might have done to avoid annihilation. And what, pray tell, is quietus? Sounds like something I might enjoy if the form were but slightly altered.
 
   Mar-24-21 Reti vs Nimzowitsch, 1928
 
DanQuigley: There's no need to speculate really. Chessmetrics shows that at the time of this tournament in 1928, Nimzowitsch was third in the world (behind Alekhine and Capablanca). Reti was in a virtual tie for 9-12 with Lasker, Marshall, and Spielmann, but well behind Bogoljubov, Euwe, ...
 
   Nov-18-20 Alexander Petrov (replies)
 
DanQuigley: I have not been able to find many games of Petrov's. Only 24 so far.
 
   Nov-02-20 V Eingorn vs E Torre, 1987 (replies)
 
DanQuigley: Would 33.Re5 have worked equally well?
 
   Aug-23-20 Yates vs Tartakower, 1926
 
DanQuigley: B90 Sicilian Defense Fred Dewhirst Yates - Savielly Tartakower Budapest Hungary, Round 3, June 28, 1926 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 a6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 Predecessor: 5.Nd2 Nc6 6.Nxc6 dxc6 7.Bd3 e5 8.0-0 Bg4 9.Qe1 Bc5 10.Nb3 Ba7 11.Be3 Qc7 12.Bxa7 Rxa7 1-0 (62) Spielmann - ...
 
   Jul-26-20 P K Wells vs M Yeo, 2013
 
DanQuigley: 23...Qc4? is the critical mistake because 24.d7 then wins. Apparently Black can play 23...Qc6 with equal chances. If the exchange sacrifice made on move 18 turns out to be good for White, Black will have to play the alternative 17...Bf5 with equal chances for both sides.
 
   Jul-09-20 V G Terentiev vs Wojtkiewicz, 1979
 
DanQuigley: When Black plays 8...a6 he transposes into a B99 Sicilian. These aren't played much by Black any more because they are so hard to defend over the board.
 
   May-17-20 Morphy vs A Meek, 1857 (replies)
 
DanQuigley: Alexander Beaufort Meek lived. He was born in a house (about 25 miles east of where I live) in Columbia, SC, July 17. 1814.
 
   Apr-07-20 J L Watson vs S Cronick, 1966
 
DanQuigley: At the time of this tournament, John L. would have been fourteen and only a few months away from fifteen. The Watson listed here is listed only as J. Watson: https://www.saund.co.uk/britbase/pg...
 
   Mar-14-20 Kostic vs Maroczy, 1922 (replies)
 
DanQuigley: On pages 242-244 of BCM are George A. Thomas's excellent notes to the game. I found them to be so enlightening that I provide them here in full (they are out of copyright): GAME No. 4,942. Played in the Weston-super-Mare tournament. Notes by G.A.T. Queen's Pawn Opening. WHITE: ...
