   Nov-29-19 Daniel Freeman (replies)
JimNorCal: Thought of Daniel today and stopping by to say "thank you".
   Nov-27-19 St. Petersburg (1909)
JimNorCal: Well, there you are. Welcome to
   Nov-24-19 Alekhine vs Rubinstein, 1930
JimNorCal: <sleep kid>: Apparently, at some tournament, Alekhine and Bogolyubov, on a drunken lark, went to Rubinstein's hotel room and banged on the door shouting that they were the police, and for him to open the door. Rubinstein apparently fled the hotel and the tournament. Have you
   Nov-19-19 Nimzowitsch vs Marshall, 1912 (replies)
JimNorCal: 35. ... Ra5 looks odd because Black's only hope is to get the remaining white pawn off the board, trade rooks then draw because the two knights can't mate
   Nov-16-19 Grand Prix Hamburg (2019) (replies)
JimNorCal: Duda has castled. Drawish now? Quite a tactical slugfest! Now that black has recovered the piece he still has the Q side pawn majority. But with QR vs QR it may be hard to generate anything.
   Nov-04-19 Spielmann vs Bogoljubov, 1932
JimNorCal: Comment of the day!
   Oct-27-19 Znosko-Borovsky vs Nimzowitsch, 1907 (replies)
JimNorCal: I'm another impressed by the pun. But ... Doesn't brillig come an hour later NEXT week?
   Oct-26-19 Johan Behting (replies)
JimNorCal: Wasn't it Tartakover who said (of Alekhine?) something like-- He creates a work of genius from something that would not inspire another to even send a postcard
   Oct-17-19 Isle of Man Grand Swiss (2019) (replies)
JimNorCal: I once had the pleasure of visiting the IOM. Quite a pleasant vacation spot. Still, when I tell the story of my trip highlights, I am too frequently told "Jim, forget the Isle of Man. Next time visit the Isle of Women!"
   Oct-17-19 Nimzowitsch vs Weenink, 1930 (replies)
JimNorCal: The white pawns move forward with startling rapidity! Look at the position at moves 21 or 22 for example
