   Jan-28-11 Blackburne vs Steinitz, 1876 (replies)
OJC: What an ending! I couldn't find published analysis on the R+R vs. R+6P finale except from the match book. I wonder if a detailed analysis has been reached starting from move 49. From Steinitz in the match book (freely available on google books): "... [Steinitz] , remaining with a rook ...
   Jan-26-11 Harrwitz vs Anderssen, 1848 (replies)
OJC: The score of the ending is probably incorrect: 35. ...c5+ though still winning throws away a mate in 4 beginning with the obvious 35. ...QxN+. Pickard's book on Anderssen states the final move was 34. ...Rf3+. 35. ...c5+ seems careless considering white still has threat of mate in 1 on ...
   Jan-26-11 Anderssen vs Harrwitz, 1848
OJC: An odd pattern: In this 7th match game and also the 6th ( Harrwitz vs Anderssen, 1848 ) Harrwitz ultimately loses to tactics enabled by him trapping his own rook in the corner with his king.
   Jan-26-11 Harrwitz vs Anderssen, 1848 (replies)
OJC: According to Pickard's book on Anderssen, the score is missing the final move with Harrwitz blundering 27. Rc1 Bxe2
   Sep-14-10 G Marco vs Maroczy, 1899 (replies)
OJC: 78. ...c5 is cute, brought a smile to my face.
   Dec-26-09 Spassky - Korchnoi Match (2009) (replies)
OJC: <<The Rocket> <Its pretty embarrasing if spassky loses this match, after all regardless of how inactive he has been, korchnoi is still 78!.> Spassky has got nothing to be embarrased about. His performance is great! Even if he ends up losing. Korchnoi might be 78 but he is
   Oct-23-08 Lasker - Steinitz World Championship Rematch (1896) (replies)
OJC: < Four weeks later, Steinitz's mind went, and he was sent to a psychiatric clinic. He was soon found to be hopelessly mad. > Not only is this nonsense, it doesn't even quote the source correctly. The relevant extract from the link is: < ... In their second championship match, ...
   Mar-15-08 Tarrasch vs Lasker, 1908 (replies)
OJC: What happened to fighting chess? Especially in a WC match against one's declared nemesis. Tarrasch must have been embarrassed to lose the final game this way. Isn't almost anything better? How about 26.Rf1. What happens to Lasker's attack then? With a healthy clock, I'd rather have the ...
   Jan-22-08 J Sarwer vs Waitzkin, 1986 (replies)
OJC: <re: Ontario> Is school really any less of a drudgery in other parts of the world? Just 12-13 years of hard time and then sweet freedom to watch all the TV you want.
   Nov-10-07 Svidler vs Topalov, 1998
OJC: < stanleys: Could u guess what Topa initially played on move 18? He took his own queen with the knight e5 :) > stanleys: Topalov confirms your story in his book on the 2006 WCC match with Kramnik. He was convinced Svidler would exchange queens so he automatically captured the ...
