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.

   Jan-19-20 La Bourdonnais vs McDonnell, 1834 (replies)
Marcelo Bruno: Draw according to Philidor's considerations: K+R against K+N.
   Jan-19-20 McDonnell vs La Bourdonnais, 1834
Marcelo Bruno: I am looking for a possible portrait of Alexander McDonnell; unfortunately the internet brings in some cases George Alcock's instead.
   Jan-06-20 NN vs Philidor, 1749 (replies)
Marcelo Bruno: Philidor played his own Defense.
   Dec-26-19 Gioachino Greco
Marcelo Bruno: Von Scheve, in his book "Das Geist des Schach-Spielers" informs that Greco died probably in Brazil.
   Dec-26-19 NN vs Greco, 1620 (replies)
Marcelo Bruno: Perhaps the longest game of the 17th century: although White moved all his pieces, he lost the game. Black didn't only move his f7 Pawn. Very interesting.
   Dec-20-19 NN vs Greco, 1620
Marcelo Bruno: At least Greco played a positional game.
   Dec-01-19 Zukertort vs E Schallopp, 1881
Marcelo Bruno: A beautiful miniature!
   Nov-28-19 Steinitz vs Lasker, 1896
Marcelo Bruno: For me 19. Rxg5 was the decisive error.
   Oct-22-19 Gastone Montessori (replies)
Marcelo Bruno: Was he a Maria Montessori's relative?
   Oct-22-19 Berlin (1897)
Marcelo Bruno: Why didn't Schallopp participate in both Berlin 1897 tournaments?
