   Feb-13-21 K Richter vs Saemisch, 1933
 
Scuvy: I believe Paul Keres was the modern master who used the Modern Steinitz the most, attaining an excellent lifetime record with it. Tim Taylor, in his book "Slay the Spanish!," claims a 70+ percent success rate for Keres.

Scuvy: Santa: Thanks for the premium membership. Whenever it finally drops down the ol' chimney is fine by me. Here's to better chess and better days in 2021! Regards, Scuvy
 
   Jan-09-21 Euwe vs Alekhine, 1937
 
Scuvy: From Alekhine's notes (referring to his 37th move): "At last the most hated Knight of the match can be eliminated, and in addition to the two extra Pawns, Black quickly obtains a mating attack. It was an exciting struggle!"
 
   Jan-09-21 G Milos vs J Polgar, 1996 (replies)
 
Scuvy: Sorry, forgot how to paste the hyperlink in my previous post.
 
   Nov-01-20 Gelfand vs Shirov, 2007 (replies)
 
Scuvy: I dont understand all the digs at Shirov on this site, simply because he had a horrible record vs Kasparov. Shirov was not the one who bullied and ran off sponsors for the WCC maich. Frankly, I'm glad Kasparov is retired. He was responsible for one of the worst schisms ever seen in ...
 
   Oct-03-20 A Volokitin vs Fridman, 2016
 
Scuvy: The crown jewel of Volokitin's 2016 Olympiad performance; a 2600+ world class GM demolished in only 23 moves. A beautiful attack by Volokitin.
 
   Sep-28-20 T K Ozgur vs J M Miciano, 2018 (replies)
 
Scuvy: Queen -sac Mondays are the best! Only takes about a half-second to see Qxg2+ wins immediately.
 
   Aug-29-20 Wolfgang Uhlmann (replies)
 
Scuvy: I'll take a shot at the other four players: Milton Otteson, Ken Warner, James Sherwin and Viktors Pupols.
 
   Aug-19-20 Alekhine vs Lasker, 1914
 
Scuvy: This game is one of 2 draws Alekhine included in his best games book 1908-1923; the other one being the "immortal draw" vs. Reti at Vienna, 1922.
 
   Jul-24-20 NN vs D Freeman, 2018 (replies)
 
Scuvy: This GOTD, and its tltle, are a fitting tribute to Daniel Freeman, the co-founder and webmaster of this site. RIP Mr. Freeman. It does not seem like two years since his tragically premature passing.
