   Apr-11-22 Kasparov vs P Nikolic, 1989
 
DanQuigley: 12...Bf8 looks really dubious to me. Why keep Bishops in a closed position one can't open up? 12...Bxc3 13.Qxc3 Nd7 and I think Kasparov is going to have difficulty proving he has anything.
 
   Apr-11-22 Kasparov vs P Nikolic, 1989
 
DanQuigley: I put this game into a strong computer program and had it evaluate both sides. The program rendered the verdict that both players had played flawless chess. It couldn't recommend a single improvement. I've never seen that before.
 
   Jan-22-22 Spielmann vs Pirc, 1931
 
DanQuigley: Part II: 6...e6 Programs like this move for Black the best. In two later games Spielmann faced 6…g6, and as I indicated previously, wasn’t particularly challenged by it. I think young master Pirc here plays the Black pieces as well as they can be played, with patience, and

DanQuigley: Interesting. He didn't live too much longer after his release as a POW. I wonder if his inability to grow a real moustache was a handicap?
 
   Nov-27-21 Maroczy vs Spielmann, 1932
 
DanQuigley: Here are my thoughts on the game. 7...Bg4?! I have no problem with Black's sixth move, but this looks a bit dubious to me. What comes of pinning the f3 Knight and giving White's Bishop on d3 free reign? I think 7...Bf5, though less popular for Black, gives White problems in ...
 
   Nov-10-21 Spielmann vs M Elyashiv, 1903
 
DanQuigley: This is Game 21 in my edition of Richtig Opfern (The Art of the Sacrifice). Spielmann's game heading indicates he played it in June, 1903 in the Munich Chess Club tournament. That's possible, I suppose, but I can find no record of such a tournament as having taken place. I think ...
 
   Sep-19-21 Winawer vs H Suechting, 1897
 
DanQuigley: Schiffers here tried running the a-pawn with 9...a5, ...a4, ...a3. White let that work for Schiffers. Just goes to show, when playing way down in rating run the Rook pawn at your opponent's King.
 
   Aug-01-21 Botvinnik vs Smyslov, 1958
 
DanQuigley: 11...Qc7 12.0-0 Ra7! is Bronstein's wily suggestion, threatening ...b5. Black stands well -- John L. Watson (1979).
 
   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, ...
