   Nov-20-20 Stein vs A Matanovic, 1965 (replies)
 
Helios727: The game used for Harmon's first encounter with Borgov in the "Queen's Gambit" Netflix series.
 
   Nov-09-20 Fischer vs Myagmarsuren, 1967 (replies)
 
Helios727: It was Seirawan who told the story on Youtube. He said it was against a Mongolian opponent. Did Fischer ever have another Mongolian opponent? Seirawan said it was in Fischer's hotel room after the game with Robert Byrne and other American GM's. He said Byrne and the other GM's ...
 
   Nov-06-20 55th USSR Championship (1988)
 
Helios727: A 19 man (if you include Tal) all GM event. Does anyone know how many GM's the Soviet Union had in total at the time?
 
   Nov-01-20 John L Watson
 
Helios727: In his book Secrets of Modern Chess Strategy (page 24), Watson says, "Euwe and Kramer call d4/e4 vs e6 or e7 a 'Neo-Classic Centre', which is far more frequent in modern chess than the 'Classic'." Did he really mean d4/e4 vs e6 or d6, or what was he saying?
 
   Nov-01-20 Nezhmetdinov vs Kasparian, 1955 (replies)
 
Helios727: The game used for Harmon v. Beltik in the Queen's Gambit Netflix series. The series has Beltik resign after 41. Qxg6+.

Helios727: Is there a reason why Ilya Maizelis, writer of The Soviet Chess Primer, is not in the database?
 
   Oct-24-20 Lasker vs Bird, 1892
 
Helios727: In addition to Reinfeld's version being shorter, he has different moves for Black on moves 40, 42, and 43. However, the position after White's 61st move (where Reinfeld has Black resign) is the same in both versions.
 
   Oct-23-20 Korchnoi vs Karpov, 1961 (replies)
 
Helios727: Okay, so my Karpov book is wrong. In any event, 1951-1961 means that Karpov could only be 10 at most in this game.
 
   Oct-22-20 Lasker vs Lipke, 1889
 
Helios727: In his Lasker book, Reinfeld goofed by giving: 26...Nf5 27.Qe4 Nge7 28.g4 Nh4+ 29.Kg3 Nxf3 30.Qxf3 Qxd5 31.Qe3 as winning for White when it is actually winning for Black.
 
   Oct-08-20 E Magerramov vs A Minasian, 1991 (replies)
 
Helios727: Was this part of the 58th USSR Championship? If so, why does Chessgames.com not have this tournament in their database? Do they only cover the ones where they have every game posted in the database?
