   Jan-28-20 Duchamp vs V Kahn, 1924 (replies)
gpbear: <keypusher> <In 1924 the first time control was typically at move 30, not move 40.> Time control: 40 moves in 2 hours, then each next 20 moves in 1 hour. "Probably" not definitely :P
   Oct-17-19 R Nezhmetdinov vs Tal, 1961 (replies)
gpbear: To do this against Tal is astounding.
   Oct-11-19 Paul Morphy (replies)
gpbear: Just paying my respects to the greatest of all time!
   Jun-20-19 Tal vs Weldrou, 1949 (replies)
gpbear: That Tal guy was pretty good
   Jun-16-19 Gothenburg (1920) (replies)
gpbear: This is an interesting tournament. The Queen's Indian Defense was only played a handful of times, but in this tournament it was played at least ten in all three tournaments A, B, and C. The Nimzo-Indian and Bogo-Indian were also played a few times. And after this tournament, the ...
   Feb-25-18 Morphy vs Anderssen, 1858 (replies)
gpbear: This game took all of 30 minutes to complete.
   Feb-25-18 Capablanca vs Maroczy, 1926 (replies)
gpbear: I find the disdain some members of the community have for this game laughable. If you can't appreciate symmetry in chess, then you've had your nose buried too deep in books to value simple aesthetic harmony.
   Feb-06-18 K Makarczyk vs Duchamp, 1933
gpbear: "Duchamp had a terrible performance at Folkestone" Interestingly enough, he beat the man who won, Znosko-Borovsky, the year before.
   Feb-05-18 Duchamp vs F Lazard, 1929
gpbear: He didn't "make" the urinal, he bought it and submitted it to an art jury he was a member of as a test, it was rejected.
   Feb-04-18 Duchamp vs M Schroeder, 1922
gpbear: Happy 96th birthday to this game, by the way.
