   May-09-23 M Kolesar vs O Sikorova, 1998 (replies)
Scuvy: The game score appears to be incorrect as 24...Qc6+ is simply answered by 25 Nxc6. Perhaps 24....Qb7+ was played?

Scuvy: That was a fast correction! Thanks to the CG admin who fixed it. Regards, Scuvy

Scuvy: To the CG community and admins: Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Wishing all peace on earth, good will and good chess in 2023. Regards, Scuvy
   Sep-29-22 Korchnoi vs Biritcher, 1974 (replies)
Scuvy: *Correction--it was 10 rounds, Korchnoi had draws with Hort and Timman.

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.
