   Nov-26-20 F Rhine vs D Sprenkle, 1981 (replies)
qqdos: <FSR> Many thanks indeed for such an informative (no pun intended) narrative. I don't think Chess Informant would accept your narrow definition of how they "deemed" a "novelty". The impression created was objective, cutting edge, first with the news, which was why so many ...
   Nov-25-20 C W Pritchett vs E Gonzales, 1978 (replies)
qqdos: This game - a splendid miniature - follows the famous 1981 game Rhine vs Sprenkle which received great prominence from Chess Informant, John Nunn, Eric Schiller, Grigory Bogdanovich et al. The famous/notorious move 18.Nxd6! was high-lighted as an important Theoretical Novelty and ...
   Sep-27-20 L P Supi vs Carlsen, 2020 (replies)
qqdos: <Sally Simpson> This game has been dubbed the Brazilian Pearl. Any rival contenders or dislikes?
   Sep-12-20 A Sokolov vs Tukmakov, 1984
qqdos: <StockFish> here prefers 15....Ba8 whereas Jouni Yrjola in his 2000 Easy Guide book at page 53 gives 15....Qb6! as an improvement over Tukmakov's 15....Rc8. The 15....Qb6 move was played by Inkiov against Dimitrov in 1989, Sofia.
   Aug-11-20 Reti vs Alekhine, 1925
qqdos: <Sally Simpson> According to an eye-witness - source Bruce Hayden's book "Of Cabbages and Kings" - Alekine scrambled up the pieces which placed Reti in a psychological bind. He was the one strongly objecting to the irregularity and it would have been very strange and defeatist ...
   Jul-23-20 Mendlewicz vs V Soultanbeieff, 1926
qqdos: <GC> How about the fascinating coup 18...0-0! offering up the c7 pawn and an attack on the a8 rook. 19. Nxc7 exf3 and if the WN goes after the corner rook 20.Nxa8 not 20....Re8+; but 20...Rd8#!! in 3. Therefore White must play something like 20.Qxf3 to which the reply is again ...
   May-17-20 Golubev vs C Lupulescu, 2002 (replies)
qqdos: <Mikhail Golubev> Rob Escalante in his Mammoth Book of Sozin Miniatures page 61, has this enigmatic comment - "Black fights just enough to steal a loss from the jaws of victory"?! Can anyone elucidate? Perhaps even GM Golubev - e.g. evidence of fight and, most baffling, ...
   Feb-05-20 A Gorlin vs P Thiel, 2000 (replies)
qqdos: The killer move should read 26...Nxf2!! (# in 7).
   Jan-17-20 Radjabov vs Nepomniachtchi, 2019
qqdos: <Good Morning> a partial answer to your query is to be found in Volume 142 of Chess Informant, where this game (picked by the Editor) is awarded Theoretical Novelty of Volume 141. 15...b5! is chosen as the prize new move. A full tabulation of the opening is given including the ...
   Jan-15-20 N Borge vs D Leal, 2018
qqdos: <B89> The opening here turns into a standard Velimirovic Attack with 10.h3. This was played in the first game with both 8.Qe2 and 9.0-0-0 by Nezhmetdinov vs Krogius, 1959 in round 11 of the USSR Championship. In a sense that was a historic game although Nezh wasn't able to ...
