Javid Danowski
Member since Mar-18-03 · Last seen Mar-28-06
I am English. I don't play much over the board these days, but ocasionally play on the internet. I used to have a grading of about 2000, but it's probably more like 200 currently.

   Javid Danowski has kibitzed 36 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Mar-28-06 Janowski vs C Jaffe, 1917 (replies)
Javid Danowski: 36 ... Qe2+ is not a big mistake. There is indeed a perverse logic to it. White is threatening Bg6++ (or Bg6+, if Black plays 36 ... g5 instead). and this and 36 ... Qf3+ are the only ways of preventing immediate mate. However, in the incredibly unlikely event that Janowski ...

Javid Danowski: Information on the Russian General Bagration, after whom both Kieseritsky and Operation Bagration were named, can be found here:
   Feb-22-06 Lasker vs Janowski, 1910 (replies)
Javid Danowski: 11 ... Nh6 is not a lemon. After 12 b4 Nxb4 13 axb4 Qxb4, Black has a virtually won game - eg 14 Qd2 Nf5. The position after 12 b4 has been used by a nunmber of authors - Znosko-Borovsky, Becker amongst others to illustrate saving a lost position.
   Jan-17-06 O'Kelly vs Rubinstein, 1945 (replies)
Javid Danowski: This and the other post-1932 games (Rubinstein retired in 1932, because of his poor mental health) were off-hand games, probably played in the sanatorium where Rubinstein spant the last years of his life. I recall reading Rubinstein's obituary in a back-number of the BCM that

Javid Danowski: <Ray Keene> Thank you for your reply. I have sent my email address to chessgames and asked them to forward it to you. And no, sending me your set of annotated games will not stop me buying what. I think. is a long overdue English language book on Janowski.

Javid Danowski: Taubenhaus was at one time the operator of the chess automaton Mephisto, as was Gunsberg - see Mephisto (Isador Gunsberg)

Javid Danowski: To Chessgames. The 1909 match between Lasker and Janowski to which you refer in your biographical note was not a world championship match, even though counted as one in many sources. It was actually just a ten-game exhibition series rather than a match proper (ie all ten ...
   Jan-20-05 Janowski vs Gruenfeld, 1925 (replies)
Javid Danowski: Here is a game with a similar ending, but with the boot, as it were, on the other foot. Schlechter vs Janowski, 1907
   Dec-01-04 A W Fox vs Marshall, 1904 (replies)
Javid Danowski: <LIFE Master AJ> Actually, Fox (1881-1964) was one of the two youngest players in the tournament (Napier was born in the same year but I do not know either his or Fox's actual birth dates). See .
   Oct-05-04 Showalter vs Janowski, 1916 (replies)
Javid Danowski: The aacrifice 7 ... Nx e4 also occurred in A Haida vs Janowski, 1925 . That game is very similar, with a similar wining tactic on d2.
