   Feb-23-21 Panov vs Smyslov, 1940
nizmo11: [DIAGRAM] 19...Nc6 reminds of the famous Averbakh vs Spassky, 1956 Would be interesting to know how the young (or old) Smyslov assessed the sacrifice. Terekhov: "Playing Black against Panov, he found himself in a strategically dubious position, but turned the game upside down ...
   Feb-23-21 P Dubinin vs Smyslov, 1940
nizmo11: Does not look like pre-arranged draw, rather a time trouble scramble. This game is included as fragment in Terekhov's <Vasily Smyslov, vol I>. He calls it a "tactical melee", and thinks that perhaps Smyslov had planned after 25... Rd8?? 26. Rxd1 Rxd1 27. Qxd1 27...gxh6 ?? ...
   Feb-22-21 Capablanca vs Kostic, 1918 (replies)
nizmo11: <Position after 48. ... Rxg2+:> Stockfish says this is winning for White, and was winning until the hasty 51. c6? made it a draw. According tb, the key move is 51. Qf3! preventing Rc3 and if 51...Rf2 (51... Rxc5 52. Qg3+ winning a Rook) 52. Qg3+ and Black is unable to double ...
   Jan-27-21 O Roething vs Marshall, 1900 (replies)
nizmo11: Going back to match, I now see that in <Young Marshall> (p. 114) Hilbert writes: "Marshall won the sixth game as well, [...] a curiosity that followed the fourth game until thirty-first move." But this must be an error: the game score for game 6 (game 157, pp. 254-255) is 4 ...
   Jan-22-21 Smyslov vs M Recash, 1938
nizmo11: This is game 4 in Terekhov's excellent book "Vasily Smyslov, vol 1, The early years (1921-1948)". According him, the game was played in Moscow championship semifinal 1938, and the player with Black pieces was "Rekach" (no initial). He also provides source: magazine "64" ...
   Jan-22-21 W Napier vs L Winkler, 1938
nizmo11: This game is mentioned in John Hilbert's Article "Napier, search continues", , and gives the source for the game as 'American Chess Bulletin, 1938.01-02, p10'. The existence of the game conflicts with Napier's statement, quoted in Hilbert's ...
   Jan-16-21 W Napier vs D Fawcett, 1904
nizmo11: Blacks last move and the losing blunder was not 40...Bg4?? as shown here, but actually 40...Rg4?? that was almost as bad as Bg4 (40...f6!) source: Hilbert, Napier, (1997), game 251.
   Jan-11-21 A Hodges vs Schlechter, 1904
nizmo11: [DIAGRAM] 36...Be4! After 36... Bd6? the Bishop end game was drawn until White panicked with 44.d7: 44. Be2 and for example 44... e3+ 45.Kf3 Ke5 46.Kg2 and Black cannot play Kd5 because 47. Bxh5 even wins for White (47... Bb5 48.Be2!).
   Jan-11-21 Pillsbury vs G Marco, 1904
nizmo11: Fine is of course right that 36...Raa2 would have won. But to me the "inexplicable blunder" was 37...Bxd2 [DIAGRAM] 37... Ra1! would win a piece, and the most natural 37...Raa2 was very strong.
   Jan-11-21 A Hodges vs Lasker, 1904
nizmo11: Did Lasker not see 21.Dxd3 and expected Hodges to resign after 20...Nxd3+? (20...Qxd3) [DIAGRAM] Later in the game after 24. Nc5 position would be about equal
