   Jun-27-22 Larry Christiansen (replies)
 
Scuvy: Happy Birthday to a great attacking player! I have always admired Larry's commonsense approach to tactics and advice on how to improve. Just found a copy of "Rocking the Ramparts" at a used bookstore and am looking forward to going through it.
 
   Apr-09-22 Kasparov vs Bacrot, 2000 (replies)
 
Scuvy: Unfortunately I do not have the source for Kasparov's comment (it might be in Peter Wells' book on the Scotch) to the effect he (Kasparov) believed the Scotch Game was the only other double e-pawn opening to present Black with as many (or almost as many) strategic problems as the ...
 
   Mar-05-22 J Mortimer vs A Skipworth, 1883 (replies)
 
Scuvy: How can this opening be classed as a Richter Attack? Richter 's choice was almost always 6 e5. This is more akin to an Exchange French.
 
   Feb-20-22 M Al-Modiahki vs Tin Htun Zaw, 1999
 
Scuvy: This game appears in John Nunn's excellent primer "Learn Chess." For whatever reason, Dr. Nunn does not mention 5...e6 to break the diagonal of White's powerful light-squared Bishop. The move played, 5...c5, appears to lose immediately.
 
   Feb-19-22 R P Michell vs G A Thomas, 1935 (replies)
 
Scuvy: From the tournament book Hastings 1934-35, edited by James Schroeder: "A disappointment for one of the truly great gentlemen who was also a superb sportsman...When I sent Thomas a copy of my book of the AVRO 1938 Tournament he sent me a thank-you note."

Scuvy: Happy Birthday to you , Mr. Keene! I very much enjoyed your books on Petrosian and Nimzovich. In my opinion, Flank Openings is one of the very few opening books that truly teaches ideas behind the openings.

Scuvy: Dear Santa: Thanks for the premium membership for 2021. I have enjoyed posting and learning from the CG community. Merry Christmas to the CG admins and all my fellow members! May we have peace on earth, good will to all and a great year of chess in 2022. Regards, Scuvy

Scuvy: Responding to ndg2's spot-on assessment, one possibility for a good drawing weapon would be the Marshall Attack in the Ruy Lopez. It may not be what Kramnik or Carlsen would use, but as Bogdan Lalic stated in his excellent book on the Marshall, Garry Kasparov made a point of not ...
 
   Nov-27-21 USA-ch / Zonal (1969)
 
Scuvy: One of the overlooked gems of US chess literature is the tournament book written by Morton Siegel. As a teenage scholastic player I obtained a copy from the USCF for a whopping $1 or $2 (can't recall the exact price). It has biographical sketches of the players, great photos and ...
 
   Nov-26-21 Bronstein vs Evans, 1955 (replies)
 
Scuvy: This game appears in Evans' New Ideas in Chess, p. 137.
