   May-08-06 David Gedult (replies)
elahevad: He's played the Blackmar Diemer a good bit as white, I've seen many more of his games than represented here. HEYA CHESSGAMES, how about you find a way to identify the Blackmar Diemer Gambit other than "Queen's Pawn Game". I'm sure it has it's own eco if you look hard enough....
   Apr-08-06 Kasparian vs Tal, 1953 (replies)
elahevad: Interesting, a kind of the King's Indian Attack vs. the Sicilian... Might be worth a try...
   Mar-12-06 Robert James Fischer (replies)
elahevad: I think maybe I have to side with Broon, Karpov beat Korchnoi for the title after Fischer abdicated, and Korchnoi had a winning record vs. Fischer if I'm not mistaken. Hard to make predictions about hypotheticals though. How are we to know how Fischer or Karpov would have adjusted ...
   Mar-12-06 Blackburne vs Nimzowitsch, 1914 (replies)
elahevad: I think it would have been hard for anyone to underestimate Blackburne, He is one of the all time great tacticians. I think maybe the point of 1.e3 is that Blackburne likely knew of Nimzo's idea that pawn moves count as 0 in opening development, so why not 1.e3 then? Blackburne is ...
   Mar-04-06 Wade Allen (replies)
elahevad: Woody Allen is known to be an avid player, so it's possible. But I have a hard time picturing him in Ohio...
   Feb-13-06 W Adams vs G Kramer, 1946 (replies)
elahevad: I do a search thinking, you know, I bet nobody has lost as white against the Caro Kann in 10 moves, this won't turn up anything... I was wrong again!
   Dec-29-05 Kasparov vs D Letterman, 1990 (replies)
elahevad: I remember this game. It was actually played correspondence, Kasparov calling in his moves each night on the show.Then Letterman would say things like "Ok, so now I'll move my horse in front of the lady" or some such, and Kasparov would say "no David. That is very bad." Wouldn't ...
   Dec-26-05 Ryder vs NN, 1899 (replies)
elahevad: Yes! 10. Qe1 is very elegant, and a major improvement over Ryder's choice. However, I can see why black resigned. Not because black was losing, black was indeed actually winning. But most players, presented with a brazen hung queen and seeing that to take it is death, nothing in ...
   Nov-25-05 E J Diemer vs F Lamb, 1947 (replies)
elahevad: I think I can explain. Diemer was in fact very good with this gambit. It was orginally known as the Blackmar gambit, but Diemer developed it so well that his name got attatched to it as well. The reason Lamb has this defense named after him, is that this would likely have been the ...
   Nov-21-05 Judit Polgar (replies)
elahevad: If the looks of a grandmaster are at all relevant, I would like to submit that Judit Polgar is far cuter than Tal.
