   Oct-26-21 Polerio vs NN, 1581
Ziryab: This is the earliest record of what came to be known as the Greco Attack in the Italian Opening. Although this game was published in <British Chess Magazine>in 1894, it is missing from most databases.
   Oct-24-21 Giulio Cesare Polerio
Ziryab: Polerio invented the Greco Attack.
   Oct-24-21 Polerio vs Busnardo, 1590
Ziryab: Interesting biography of Lucena. Thanks for the link.
   Oct-22-21 Greco vs NN, 1624
Ziryab: This game should be dated 1624, as it appears in Greco's Grenoble (1624), Paris (1625), and Orléans (n.d.) manuscripts. See Peter J. Monté, The Classical Era of Modern Chess (McFarland 2014), 463.
   Oct-22-21 Jean Defuse chessforum
   Oct-19-21 Krasenkow vs J L Hammer, 2016
Ziryab: This game is great illustration of some of the themes of the the Ragozin.

   Oct-18-21 Greco vs NN, 1620
Ziryab: Beale (1656) does list Fool's Mate and Scholar's Mate at the beginning of his book, but these are not found in Greco's manuscripts. Both, I believe, date from Arthur Saul, The famous game of Chesse-play (1614). The name Scholar's Mate derived from J. Barbier's 1640 revision of Saul's
   Oct-07-21 Chigorin vs Tarrasch, 1905
Ziryab: Cyrus Lakdawala, Tactical Training in the Endgame (2021) begins with the draw that Chigorin missed in this game.
   Sep-16-21 D Yuffa vs R R Laxman, 2019
Ziryab: Yes, that seems correct. Thanks.
