I introduced chess to Spain in the ninth century, and from there it spread to most of Europe.

   Jul-01-20 Polerio vs Lorenzo, 1580
Ziryab: It appears that the game score is now correct. Bravo Chessgames Home Page !
   Jul-01-20 Biographer Bistro (replies)
Ziryab: I have a question regarding game score corrections? How long does it take for these to be processed? I submitted a correction to Polerio vs Lorenzo, 1575 Some of the moves are absurd. Peter J. Monté, <The Classical Era of Modern Chess> points out that the source of the ...
   Jun-25-20 B F Winkelman vs G N Treysman, 1936 (replies)
Ziryab: < Phony Benoni> I play 1.e4 plenty. That has other risks. The French, for instance. Everyone hates the French, except those of us who favor it.
   Jun-24-20 NN vs Greco, 1620
Ziryab: <sea7kenp> Here’s another (recently added): Greco vs NN, 1623
   Jun-24-20 C Bloodgood vs K Amirjahed, 1959
Ziryab: Bloodgood’s Grob was a real killer. This game is a good illustration of the hypermodern principles of letting your opponent create a pawn center that you can destroy.
   Jun-22-20 Greco vs NN, 1623
Ziryab: Now that this game, first found in Greco's MountStephen manuscript (1623), has the correct date and location, the title "When in Rome" is confusing.
   Jun-22-20 NN vs Greco, 1620
Ziryab: As <SBC> noted, this game is likely not one of Greco's. Chessbase Mega 2020 has it attributed to Greco, but it is absent from <The Oxford Encyclopedia of Chess Games> (1981). In Peter J. Monté, <The Classical Era of Modern Chess> (McFarland 2014), it is credited to ...
   Jun-19-20 Greco vs NN, 1620
Ziryab: Although this opening trap appears in Greco’s Corsini manuscript (1620), and has long been known through his collections, it did not originate with Greco. He likely copied it from one of several manuscripts by Polerio. It’s earliest known appearance is in a manuscript discovered in ...
   Jun-18-20 Greco vs NN, 1620
Ziryab: 13...Kxg8! is given in Gambett XII in Beale (1656). In the continuation offered there, both sides misplay the game that eventually finishes with advanced pawns running over the top of Black's remaining minor pieces.
   Jun-18-20 Edward Winter (replies)
Ziryab: <wharfrat> Winter's screed most certainly applies to, although not specifically. His assertions about what is missing is true IMHO of every chess site in existence. But, he sets a standard above what is practiced in any area of human endeavor, especially in the digital ...
