   Feb-18-05 Miles vs F Ullrich, 1984 (replies)
MidnightDuffer: Anthony Miles, a great all-around player, original, has embellished many openings with his own ideas, here to the Queen's Gambit Accepted 3. e4 versus the usual 3. Nf3 which one will often see the likes of Spassky play since this is what conventional wisdom dictates; Miles ...
   Feb-18-05 S Mikhailuk vs V Akobian, 2002
MidnightDuffer: This is not 34. ...Qc5 a three fold repetition Draw; but Chessmaster 9000 says it is!! It gets close to it but no draw; perhaps I am the one mistaken.
   Feb-18-05 Kim Commons (replies)
MidnightDuffer: Commons and Dieter Mohrlock ; both of these players had some good playing days, though it is not that well known, between them, wins against Anand, Schmid and Nunn,
   Feb-18-05 R Fuchs vs Uhlmann, 1980
MidnightDuffer: Uhlmann is so helpful in his book; always talking about trading off pieces, in this game, White's Queen and pawns vs. Black's Rook and Bishop and pawns wins the endgame; Uhlmann makes a game effort of it; Another thing occassionally seen in the French is the White Queen ...
   Feb-18-05 T Weinberger vs F Street, 1976 (replies)
MidnightDuffer: I got it, not to difficult, my follow up on just checking it out, though would have been wrong, I might believe mate was in the air and give another check with the Bishop on the h file rather than going for the material. Black must go for the material here, not to give ...
   Feb-17-05 A Caveney vs N D Bezaleel, 2002
MidnightDuffer: It would be interesting to compare this Bird's opening to others, I think, they are playing it close to the book. On another subject, dog gone, White is down 2 pawns, Move 29. Should be 29. Rxe4! getting one pawn back and possibly another in site, the King would have to ...
   Feb-17-05 T Abrahamyan vs T Vayserberg, 2004
MidnightDuffer: I wished to add on; because it is not clear from what I wrote, that the game in the Nov. Chess Life, Var won, an elegant game, unsure of all the details, I left that out. It is pertinent to this game, because of similar playing styles, with the opening [C02] at the World ...
   Feb-17-05 V Kirillov vs A S Blankstein, 1938 (replies)
MidnightDuffer: I don't mean to draw a blank, but I haven't seen many games here where the Queen gets trapped in such a succinct manor, well done, Black had to see this ahead of time!
   Feb-17-05 K Yee vs V Akobian, 2001 (replies)
MidnightDuffer: Yee decides he doesn't want the straightforward McCutcheon variation with 5. e5 h6 as in this prototypical game from Monte Carlo J Mortimer vs Gunsberg, 1902 ; this page too, has information that has been stated on the MacCutcheon Variation page, interesting, ...
   Feb-17-05 Tatev Abrahamyan (replies)
MidnightDuffer: Like Akobian, of Armenian descent, living in SoCal; if my geography is correct.
