   Aug-06-10 J A Leonard vs F Perrin, 1861 (replies)
noTALent: Is this the earliest or earliest known game with castling?
   Sep-28-08 I Sokolov vs Hracek, 1996 (replies)
noTALent: Or maybe it was a sunday puzzle because the need was to avoid the temptation of trying dzechiel:'s 26...Rxe1+ 27 Rxe1 Ng3+ I either couldn't work it out far enough or didn't think it was very solid, and so I was able to find the Bxg2 much quicker.
   Aug-03-07 Legky vs L Totsky, 1995 (replies)
noTALent: <MostlyAverageJoe: For <noTALent> Rxg7 is impossible (white rook is on c1).> Sorry I meant Rxc6. Must be the late night thing...
   Jul-27-07 R Nezhmetdinov vs Estrin, 1951 (replies)
noTALent: Great puzzle. I was LEANING toward Nxg7, but couldn't decide on followup move (assuming ...Kxg7 is a given). I considered Qg3+, Nd4, Ne5, Ng5, Nh6, as possibilities. But it took about half hour! Maybe I could do better if it wasn't after midnight. I also considered 26. Ne5 ...

noTALent: I read Amalie Paulsen was supposedly a very good player and sister of Louis Paulsen and Wilfried Paulsen but maybe she rarely played publicly/officially? The recent Dutch Women's Championship featured Marlies Bensdorp ("Current FIDE 2227", finished 3rd) and Laura Bensdorp ...

noTALent: He was 63 or 64 when getting IM title? Seems like a mistake, given his success in 1960s.
   Jul-26-07 Tal vs A Cherepkov, 1969 (replies)
noTALent: 31... Bf6 is better response but 31. Nxd6 wins exchange
   Jul-20-07 D Keller vs Pomar Salamanca, 1968 (replies)
noTALent: It took me a while to actually see 17. Bxg7, because I thought solution might be 17. Ne3, less to attack the queen than to threaten 18. Bxg7 Bxg7 19. Rxg7# Black's only response to 17. Bxg7 seems to be 17... fxe6, so I looked for a way to respond to it, but couldn't find it. Is ...
   Jul-18-07 Polgar vs Hellers, 1993 (replies)
noTALent: <MostlyAverageJoe:> <noTALent: What's the blunder?> <Black can play Qc6+, escaping the fork... (C), you forgot... (38 ... exd5). Except as noted, the following line has to be followed EXACTLY by the white to guarantee a draw (confirmed by backward/forward analysis ...
   Jul-16-07 I Nikolic vs G Arsovic, 1989 (replies)
noTALent: Anyone else notice that in CG's search results pages this shows up only as a 255 move game? CG must be using a 1-byte data field to record move length of games! How short-sighted of them! What are they going to do when <makaveli52> / <RandomVisitor> / ...
