   Apr-09-18 Alexander Buslaev
Polerio: Alexander Buslayev and Tigran Petrosian were both studying chess in "the palace of pioneers" in Tbilisi under Archil Ebralidze in 1942/1943. While Petrosian eventually became world champion Buslayev never really made it to the top. Many years later in the late 50's Ebralidze ...
   Aug-23-12 Althausen vs Simagin, 1943
Polerio: The event of this game must be wrong. There were none USSR Championship in 1943. Neither Simagin nor Althausen would have been strong enough to play in such a strong event at this time. My guess is that the game was played in the semifinal of the Moscow Championship, november 1943. ...
   Aug-23-12 Saint Amant vs Staunton, 1843 (replies)
Polerio: My information comes from an old book:"World,s Best Chess" by Jens Enevoldsen, Copenhagen 1966. The game lasted 8 hours, St.Amant using 6 of them and Staunton 2. By the way, on 33.Rxd1 Black can safely play 33...Rxd4.

Polerio: "Questions of Modern Chess Theory" is undoubtedly one of the best chess books ever written!

Polerio: I'm not dead. I'm still here....
   May-27-10 Greco vs NN, 1620 (replies)
Polerio: It's not to be taken seriously, but in 2009 I played the following game on internet having the white pieces: 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.c3 Nf6 4.Be2 Nxe4 5.Qa4+ and 6Qxe4 Black resigns. My opponent had a rating of 1595, so don't blame Greco's opponents.
   May-23-10 B Verlinsky vs Alekhine, 1909 (replies)
Polerio: An interesting game. The move 9.b3 was played by Lasker in the 1st game of his world championship match against Tarrasch in Dusseldorf 1908. The latter continued 9...Bc6 and after 10.Nd2 Be7 11.Bb2 Bf6 Black lost his best chance, the combined action of the bishop pair and he ...
   May-21-10 Tarrasch vs Gunsberg, 1885 (replies)
Polerio: Of course not 35...Rb2+ but 35...Rb1+. Sorry!
   May-21-10 Smyslov vs S Johannessen, 1956
Polerio: Black's decisive mistake in this game was to make his 40th move at all. After 40.Qe8+ he could have claimed the draw by threefold repetition which occures after 40...Kh6. With time pressure gone, Smyslov had time to find the winning 41.Rxe4!
   May-20-10 Tal vs S Johannessen, 1960
Polerio: It's a pity Johannessen did not play 37...h3! After 38.Rxg4 h2 39.Rh4 Rh6 Tal would have been lost.However, Black had one more chance. Instead of 38...h3? (one move too late) 38...Bf3! should win comfortably.
