   Jan-17-15 Antoshin vs A Sokolov, 1982
knightfly: The mystery is cleared up. According to Chessbase 'Antoshin retired ill'
   Sep-02-14 Anderssen vs Zukertort, 1868
knightfly: Though he wins fairly soon anyway Zukertort appears to miss a forced mate with 28.....Qxg5+ 29.fxg5 Re4+ 30.Kh5 g6+ 31.Kh6 Rh4#
   Apr-09-13 A Filipowicz vs P Smederevac, 1966 (replies)
knightfly: I believe this is the longest ever game without a capture and also possibly the most boring game ever.
   Feb-15-12 Judit Polgar vs L B Hansen, 1989 (replies)
knightfly: 33.Rbxf7 can met by 33......Re4+ which confuses things a bit though white is still probably winning.
   Jul-26-08 Napoleon Bonaparte (replies)
knightfly: Here is an interesting article which claims that Boney was little better than Hitler.
   Mar-21-08 Fine vs A Reynolds, 1937 (replies)

   Dec-20-06 G Welling vs V Eingorn, 2006 (replies)
knightfly: <Pelgrino Patzer>White wins by 1.Kg2! Kxb5 2.f4 gxf4 3.g5 The plausible looking 1.Kg3 only draws to 1...Kxb5 2.f4 gxf4+ 3.Kxf4 fxg4
   Dec-03-06 Tartakower vs Fahrni, 1909 (replies)
knightfly: As eloquent as ever Tartakower wrote after 27.Bxf6+ "This is a case where one can distinctly observe the sympathetic influence of disease from one sick part of the organism to another; indeed, in the end it is not the square f7 but its neighbour on f6 through which the assailant ...
   Nov-09-06 Cecil Brown chessforum (replies)
knightfly: Yes I agree with you about Winston, he was never one to back down from a fight starting from his early days as a cavalry officer. 'Young Winston' has always been a favourte film although how much is poetic license I don't know. I've given up on the Napoleon Bonaparte vs General ...
   Nov-06-06 Napoleon Bonaparte vs General Bertrand, 1820 (replies)
knightfly: <tino72>I stand by to be corrected on this (as usual) but I think the first country to give women the vote was New Zealand as late as the 1890's. In that that sense no country before then was truly democratic.
