   Jun-04-03 J Havenaar vs R Von Saldern, 2001 (replies)
Rookpawn: 8. Qxb7 Qc6. Now White can shatter Black's king's security with 9. Qc8+, but I don't think that this provides a "winning" advantage.
   Jun-03-03 Znosko-Borovsky vs F Duz-Khotimirsky, 1903 (replies)
Rookpawn: The two names are quite a mouthful...
   Jun-03-03 D M Martinez vs Blackburne, 1889 (replies)
Rookpawn: The game illustrates that in most endgames, the bishop is superior to the knight. (There are a few exceptions: a) the bishop's range is blocked by pawns b) the bishop has no targets because all the opposing pieces are on a different colored square. The only way White could have ...
   Jun-01-03 NN vs C van Bockel, 1955 (replies)
Rookpawn: 8. d4 Qxd4 9. Qxd4 Nxc3+ and Black has gained two pawns.
   Jun-01-03 H E Myers vs H Meifert, 1955 (replies)
Rookpawn: In retrospect, 7... Nf6 would have served Black much better.
   Jun-01-03 Dzindzichashvili vs Fritz, 1991 (replies)
Rookpawn: The game is an instance of the Scotch Gambit.
   Jun-01-03 Dzindzichashvili vs Fritz, 1991 (replies)
Rookpawn: 6... f5 seems a serious positional error because it exposes Black to a dangerous attack. Maybe unpinning the knight with 6... Be7 could have served Black well.
   Jun-01-03 Alekhine vs NN, 1911 (replies)
Rookpawn: Considering that "piano" means quiet, I guess not.
   May-31-03 Deep Blue vs Bronstein, 1996 (replies)
Rookpawn: It does seem unusual for White to resign <after> taking the bishop. So I tend to agree with the idea that the score is incorrect.
   May-21-03 Short vs Kasparov, 1993 (replies)
Rookpawn: Some people compared playing all the games of the series after the result was determined to a tennis match where a player had already won three sets, but the last two were played anyway as an exhibition.
