Hi! I'm new to this site, but like it a lot. I used to play OTB (hovering around 2150 USCF) from time to time but live in a rural area now with few tournaments. Bah. :) Am often interested in more or less arcane chess history and ancient openings.

Oh, here's a silly webpage of mine:

   Jun-09-14 St. Petersburg (1914) (replies)
Lutwidge: Hello - I'm working a bit on an article celebrating the centennial of this tournament, and have already several questions I've yet to figure out out. First off, why was Gunsberg part of it? He hadn't played in any serious capacity for practically a decade, and his heyday was in the
   Dec-09-13 Rubinstein vs Alekhine, 1922 (replies)
Lutwidge: Perhaps what Rubinstein missed was 24.Nxb4 Qxd4+! Oops.

Lutwidge: Does anyone know what the deal is with this: ? I don't know really anything about IM Taylor, but his appeal seems genuine (in this case, at any rate) and urgent. That said, he apparently tried to post the above on and his blogs were removed.
   Oct-10-13 S Williams vs The World, 2013 (replies)
Lutwidge: Is 8...d6 bad? Overprotects e5, gives White less central targets. I dunno. Ergh.
   Aug-29-13 C Bauer vs Bareev, 2003 (replies)
Lutwidge: Did Bauer really miss Qxg7++?
   Aug-20-13 Quinteros vs Westerinen, 1974 (replies)
Lutwidge: This was/is a win for White, isn't it?
   Jun-06-13 Nunn vs I Nataf, 1999 (replies)
Lutwidge: Well, that escalated quickly.
   May-11-13 Nakamura vs Carlsen, 2013
Lutwidge: I play the Vienna a lot as White, but never expected to see it in such a game as this. Carlsen's line with ...Bc5 and an early ...Na5 has been increasingly popular of late and has somewhat dampened my enthusiasm for the opening in general, so it's nice to see Naka finding a way to ...

Lutwidge: I just wanted to chime in with the (possibly minority) viewpoint that both Petrosianic and Paul might well be very knowledgeable people getting bogged down in an argument over what will soon appear even to them as meaningless minutiae. Oh, and go Golden State Warriors.
   Apr-24-13 Gelfand vs Adams, 2013 (replies)
Lutwidge: Gelfand is sometimes Rubinstein 2.0
