   Oct-18-07 R B Estera vs Kupchik, 1913 (replies)
 
Quantzo: I first saw this game in "An Invitation to Chess" by Irving Chernev & Kenneth Harkness. As always, Chernev's enthusiasm is contagious. This is a great beginner's book that should be converted to algebraic notation and reprinted.

Quantzo: Shibut gives 1-0 in "Paul Morphy and the Evolution of Chess Theory".
 
   Jul-10-05 Steinitz vs Loyd, 1867 (replies)
 
Quantzo: 17. ...cxd5? 18. Bxd5+ Rf7 19. Qh5 Qg6?? 20. fxg6 wins. Great win by Steinitz; how many threats can one Knight make? Anyway, here's my non-computer-checked finish after 17. ...cxd5?: 18. Bxd5+ Rf7 (18. ...Kh8 19. Qh5+ Qh6 20. gxh6 Nf6 21. hxg7++ Kxg7 22. Qh6#) 19. Qh5 Nf6 20. Qxf7+ ...

Quantzo: <fgh> Yes, "American Beauty" is a movie. It's also a rose and a beautiful piano rag by the great Joseph Lamb. And yes, Marshall's move is a true American Beauty. :-)
 
   Jul-03-05 Falkbeer vs Zytogorski, 1856 (replies)
 
Quantzo: Nice. This is in Greco. 8. ...Qxg4 9. Bxf7+ Kxf7 10. Ne5+ or 8. ...Qh3 9. Bxf7+ Kxf7 10. Ng4+. Black's game is lousy after 8. ...Qg6 9. Ne5 and 10. Nxf7.
