   Nov-01-11 R B Estera vs Kupchik, 1913 (replies)
SeanBurdine: Why bother converting into junk notation? I own a copy of the book and it's wonderful as is. This game was played well by both men but once Blanco got the passed pawn there wasn't a whole lot Kupchik could do, especially since Blanco exchanged off a lot of the wood before he ...
   Sep-30-11 Capablanca vs Marshall, 1918 (replies)
SeanBurdine: Capablanca himself knew it would be difficult. In his own words, before playing 10 NxP, he says: "I thought for a while before playing this, knowing that I would be subjected to a terrific attack, all the lines of which would of necessity be familiar to my adversary. The lust of
   Sep-28-11 S F St Jermain Steadman vs Ed. Lasker, 1913
SeanBurdine: Wow. White's huge edge in material is useless. 20 QxP R-K8 ch 21 Q-B1 RxQ ch! 22 RxR R-K3 23 Any R-N3 mate is a representative line. My source indicates White's mistake was 8 NxN ch.
   Sep-28-11 Alekhine vs O Chajes, 1911 (replies)
SeanBurdine: Alekhine's 13th move destroyed Chajes' position. After that it was all over but the shouting.
   Sep-28-11 Spielmann vs R Wahle, 1926 (replies)
SeanBurdine: Actually, the mistake is not 11... O-O, it's 9... P-KN3??? which irreparably weakens the K-side. At the end Black has no adequate way of stopping 18 Q-R6 -- which would nver have come up without 9... P-KN3???
   Sep-28-11 Spielmann vs J van den Bosch, 1935 (replies)
SeanBurdine: It's hard to believe that a great attacking player like Spielmann missed the devastating riposte to 16 N-N5??? [the losing move.] Once he played that, 17 QxNP was practically forced and the Q being out of play allowed the King-hunt. The correct move was 16 N-Q2, and the position
   Sep-28-11 I Dyner vs K Dreyer, 1934 (replies)
SeanBurdine: My source gives Black's name for this game as "Walter".
   Sep-28-11 P Potemkin vs Alekhine, 1912 (replies)
SeanBurdine: Rigel1503: Look, we all know Hitler was the vilest form of scum that ever breathed the air on this planet. But that didn't really start to show up publicly until after the war began. If Hitler had happened to die in October 1938 instead of living until 1945 -- which is to say, ...
   Sep-28-11 Meitner vs Schlechter, 1895 (replies)
SeanBurdine: The long and short of it is that there is no adequate defense to 17... R-N1 ch. And my source has White resigning after Black's *15th* move, not 16th.
   Sep-28-11 L Prokes vs O Zander, 1925 (replies)
SeanBurdine: 5... N-Q3? was the losing move. It severely impeded Black's development.
