Early in my life I beat Candidates to Masters in some occasions. Now I like to just watch chess history being))

   Jul-31-15 Harrwitz vs Loewenthal, 1853
mikposeidon: Yes, you're right - Harrwitz could fight with Be3! 18.Be3 Bc7 19.g3 (19.Bc2 Qd6 20.g3 Rxe3 21.Qxe3 Bb6) 19...Qe7 20.Nc2 Bg4 21.Qd3 Ne5 22.Qxd5 Nf3+ 23.Rxf3 (23.Kh1 Rd8 24.Qxb7 Nxh2 25.Kxh2 (25.Rg1 Bf3+) 25...Qh4+ 26.Kg2 Qxg3+ 27.Kh1 Qh2#) 23...Bxf3 24.Bc5 Qf6 25.Rf1 Rd8 26.Qxe4
   Jul-30-15 Loewenthal vs Harrwitz, 1853
mikposeidon: "Black had two other squares — namely, K. square and Q. Kt. fourth — to which he might have played the Bishop, and either would have been better than that chosen ; though in no case could he have saved the game" (Staunton) on move 36... Mistake by Staunton - easy draw: ...
   Jul-30-15 Harrwitz vs Loewenthal, 1853
mikposeidon: 67... d5 was draw. 68.Rf6 d4 69.Rf5 Re3+! 70.Kg2 Re4 and if 71.Rxg5 then 71...d3! 72.Rd5 Rxg4= or 72.Kf2 d2 73.Rd5 Rxg4= 46.a5! was winning move - black can not stop white passed pawn or white will make another passed pawn f with g4 and f5
   Jul-19-15 Horwitz vs Harrwitz, 1846 (replies)
mikposeidon: Black could easily play a6 on 13rd, 14th or even 15th move to avoid any problems.)) It was last game of the match. Harrwitz, who already had won the battle, just decided to color Horwitz sadness, I think.
   Jul-12-15 Saint-Amant vs Staunton, 1843 (replies)
mikposeidon: Bernstein variation is wrong, because white plays 35.Kg2 Ng5 36.Bxg5 and now has 2 rooks and B vs Q and R. So, it is not clear how to win for black here. The most simply way to win is 32...Rxd4! 33.ed g5 36.fg Qh5 and that's all for white ghost attack. In book about Staunton, R.
   Jul-11-15 Saint-Amant vs Staunton, 1843 (replies)
mikposeidon: After 21...Bb4 position becomes very wild, but i'm not see clear advantage for black. Just good initiative. After all, i think Staunton didn't want to play such kind of game, where every piece is under attack. So it's good for him to try to outplay his opponent in solid style ...
   Jul-11-15 Staunton vs Saint-Amant, 1843
mikposeidon: After 6... Be7 White has good check 7. Bb5+ and Black has to move his King because of weak pawn on d6. And it's true that SA again played opening very badly. Staunton had great advantage and pressure, but wasted all this in middle of the game. And only mistake by SA (24th and ...
   Jul-08-15 J Schulten vs Saint-Amant, 1842 (replies)
mikposeidon: Schulten in tilt
   Jul-08-15 E Rousseau vs Saint-Amant, 1843
mikposeidon: 9. d4! - and open up game while black king is staying in center. Very weak game in the beginning by Russo. Then he had tried to attack but made some silly mistakes (20. cd?? - just let black bishop to get freedom) and so on. But many tricks in the end, by the way))
