   Sep-16-21 D Yuffa vs R R Laxman, 2019
Ziryab: Yes, that seems correct. Thanks.
   Sep-16-21 Ponomariov vs Bareev, 2005 (replies)
Ziryab: <keypusher> Thanks for your detailed analysis. Ponomariov’s pawn sacrifice is the reason this game appears in “Secrets of Positional Sacrifice” (2021) by Dejan Nestorovi? and Nikola Nestorovi?. That book led me to the game. They state that 21…Qe7 was necessary. ...
   Sep-04-21 Prins vs Euwe, 1946
Ziryab: I’m aware of that English translation, which is why I employed the qualifier, “good”. That translator means well, but his English is poor.
   May-25-21 Capablanca vs R Raubitschek, 1906 (replies)
Ziryab: Raubitschek brings out tactics from Capablanca. He deserves to be better remembered.
   Apr-28-21 Capablanca vs Rubinstein, 1928
Ziryab: “A very hard struggle.” Capablanca, A Primer of Chess.

Ziryab: @Petrocephalon, your witty remark was quoted in "Lasker--Capablanca, Game 8" at
   Apr-01-21 Lasker vs Capablanca, 1921
Ziryab: It might be worth your time to compare Capablanca’s comments to those of Lasker on this game.
   Mar-24-21 J Moeller vs NN, 1898
Ziryab: Important historical footnote and interesting game. This comment serves as a bookmark.
   Mar-11-21 Mayet vs Anderssen, 1851
Ziryab: This game was indeed published in Schachzeitung (February 1851), but there it ends at 12.Qxe4 and the note that Black announced mate in five moves.
   Mar-05-21 San Sebastian (1911) (replies)
Ziryab: Jacques Mieses wrote the tournament book. "Internationales Schachturnier, Zu San Sebastian, 1911. Vollstandige Samlung der im Meisterturnier gespielten Partien" (1912). Was it ever translated into English?
