Marcelo Bruno
Member since Jun-25-06
I live in Brasília, Brazil's federative capital, where I work at a public school. Music and chess are some of my greatest loves, although I like each field of the knowledge. My interest is to get more and more old chess games (I mean old until the earliest beginning of the 20th cenury); I use to play in the same style of the players from this period and consider that their games are my main source of inspiration. I also have experience on giving chess classes at schools in Brasília. Full Member

   Dec-30-20 Licurgo Holzmann
Marcelo Bruno: He was my cousin. Died on 04th August 2020.
   Dec-20-20 Adolf Anderssen (replies)
Marcelo Bruno: <unspiek> I remarked that it is true or his ancestors were from North Germany; remember a similar case, although of Lithuanian birth, Arved Heinrichsen (1876-1900).
   Dec-18-20 Jan Kleczynski
Marcelo Bruno: He was Wanda Landowska's piano teacher.
   Nov-23-20 Timman vs Kasparov, 1985 (replies)
Marcelo Bruno: A remarkable tribute to the well known game conclusion by Chatard in the beginning of the 20th century.
   Nov-01-20 Nimzowitsch vs Spielmann, 1920
Marcelo Bruno: Nimzowitsch includes in "The Blockade" as last move 61.a4.
   Oct-11-20 R Berger vs J Krejcik, 1907 (replies)
Marcelo Bruno: Spectacular! The Wikipedia in English provides the information of place and year as "Karlsbad 1911".
   Sep-19-20 Lasker vs Navarro, 1921 (replies)
Marcelo Bruno: I have an impression that Lasker wasn't very lucky at his simultaneous displays. I remember that the magazine La Stratégie mentioned at least one game he lost in such conditions in the 1890s. Am I correct to say this?
   Sep-19-20 NN vs Greco, 1620
Marcelo Bruno: I believe it would be better 40.Bb4 followed by 41.Be1 instead of the text move.
   Sep-19-20 Gioachino Greco (replies)
Marcelo Bruno: Theodor von Scheve, in his essay "Der Geist des Schachspiels" (1919), speculates that Greco probably died in Brazil.
   Sep-19-20 Greco vs NN, 1620
Marcelo Bruno: And how about directly 7…Qe7?
