   Aug-03-19 McDonnell vs La Bourdonnais, 1834
lame duck: After 34.♗c2 : [DIAGRAM] 34... ♘c5 - this move looks strong and subtle, but in a more detailed consideration it occurs not to be so good. Jacov Neishtadt in his excellent book "Uncrowned kings of chess" (available only in Russian edition) suggests that ...
   Feb-24-19 Winawer vs J N Berger, 1883
lame duck: 35...Bxf7 is a loosing move, because black bishop gets under the pin. Playing 35... b4 36. Kh2 b3, black could reach a draw. White is in a zugzwang and has to play 37.Bc1 (preventing ...b2 and ...Ba2), which is followed by 37... Bxf7, and white can't now move forward the pawn d.
   Dec-01-18 Kolisch vs Winawer, 1867 (replies)
lame duck: Sorry, I meant jumping c3-c4-c3
   Oct-12-18 Rubinstein vs Lasker, 1909 (replies)
lame duck: <offramp> The last sign at the end of both player's families is Ъ - cyrillic letter "Hard sign". It still persists in some words in modern Russian, but it tzarist Russion Empire it was used much more often. The grammer reform made in 1918, soon after Bolsheviks ...
   Aug-18-18 Blackburne vs Steinitz, 1882
lame duck: 23...Bс8 is not good for black, because after 24. Ra7 Bxf5 25. Qxf5 Qe5 26. Rdd7 they don't have any adequate defence against Rxg7. Rybka suggests playing 23...Ne5 as better option: 24. Nd6 Nd3 25.Nxe8 Rxe8, and black has defendable position.
   Jul-14-18 Steinitz vs Winawer, 1883
lame duck: The Steinitz gambit was first introduced in game Steinitz vs G Neumann, 1867 , Dundee congress 1867, and its efficiency was checked in big tournament Baden-Baden 1870 ( Steinitz vs Paulsen, 1870 and Steinitz vs S Rosenthal, 1870 ). All these three games were won by Steinitz. He ...
   Jul-01-18 Blackburne vs Tarrasch, 1889 (replies)
lame duck: <Honza Cervenka: Blackburne later missed a win after crushing 21.f5!!> In Tarrash's book "300 schachpartien" another move order is given: 20. Bc1 Bc6 21. Nd1 Be7. If this is correct, than 21.f5 gives nothing.
   Jan-27-18 M Judd vs Mackenzie, 1874
lame duck: At 27-th move, not that much left for white to win. [DIAGRAM] 27. Nd3! Black cannot play 27...Qxd3, because after 28. Rd1 (with the treat 29.Qxd7+ Rxd7 30. Rf8+ Rd8 31. Rfxd8#) white wins: 28... Qh3 29. gxh3 Bc6+ 30. Rd5 Rxd5 31. cxd5 Bxd5+ 32. Qg2 Bxg2+ 33. Kxg2 etc. Black has ...
   Sep-14-17 Pillsbury vs Chigorin, 1896 (replies)
lame duck: <rea: Who knows what date it actually was--remember that Russia was on a different calendar (Julian, not Gregorian) from the rest of the world at the time.> In the tournament book, edited by Emmanuel Shiffers in St-Petersburg in 1896, this game is dated by December 28, 1895.
   Sep-14-17 Chigorin vs Steinitz, 1896
lame duck: Em. Shiffers in the tournament book writes that Steinitz played all this game very fast and nervously, and complained for insonmia during previous night.
