   Oct-07-20 NN vs Du Mont, 1802
sachistu: Obviously, this could not have been J. Du Mont. That has not stopped various sources from reporting it as though it was fact. Apparently, the actual players and/or date is still unknown. This assumes it was an actual game and not some piece of analysis. For what it's worth, this ...
   Sep-18-20 C Scholtens vs J H Kruit, 1941
sachistu: Regarding the score of Scholtens-Kruit... the Dutch magazine TKNSb published a correction on page 139, clarifying that White (not Black) won. They also corrected the score to reflect the one I gave in my earlier kibitz, so we have one more confirmation of the actual score. note: ...
   Sep-17-20 Rossolimo vs W A Winser, 1950
sachistu: Thanks <JohnSaunders>. I see the change has still not been made on this site, but given the events of this year, it may take some time for corrections to be implemented.
   Jul-20-20 Menchik vs Colle, 1929
sachistu: The actual finish was 39...Rg5 40.Qg4+ as given in L'Echiquier,1929,p291-2 and Schackvarlden,1929,p203 and in Tony Gillam's book of Rare and Unpublished Tournaments and Matches, p31. Gillam cites the London Times Weekly Edition. The version given in Tanner's book on Vera Menchik ...
   Jul-14-20 Carlos Torre Repetto
sachistu: You are welcome <jessicafischerqueen>. Perhaps one of our members has more details about the Torre family e.g sibling names. According to Velasco, there were 7 children (4 boys and 3 girls). However, most sources seem to only mention Carlos and Raul.
   Jul-12-20 Nimzowitsch vs B Koch, 1928
sachistu: It seems Nimzovitsch managed to bluff his way through a losing position. The move 25.Rxe5 started the swindling process as Koch did not play 25...Bxe5, apparently fearing 26.Qg5+ Kf8 27.Bxe5, which the Swedish magazine Schachvarlden claimed was 'winning'. However, after 27...Bxg2, ...
   Jun-13-20 L Shamkovich vs Simagin, 1951
sachistu: A critical position is reached after 19...Qf6! Shamkovich played 20.Na4 and lost after 20...Rxa2. Alfred Beni analyzes this position in the Austrian magazine Österreichische Schachzeitung. One of the lines goes 20.Rd3 Qf3 21.Kg1 Bxc3 22.Rxc3 Rbb8! 23.Rc1 Rfd8 24.Qxc6 Rd1+ 25.Rxd1 ...
   Jun-11-20 Y Dobkin vs M Grinberg, 1944
sachistu: Thanks <hemy>.
   Jun-04-20 Bogoljubov vs P List, 1927
sachistu: Thanks <hemy>. Unless someone objects, I will submit a correction slip.
   Jun-04-20 Reti vs Marshall, 1925
sachistu: According to the tournament book, White played 53.Kf3. After 53...g6 54.Kg4, the same position as the one on this site is reached. Reinfeld devoted some analysis to this ending in BCM, 1940, p.113-114, also giving 53.Kf3. It might seem a trivial point, but Reinfeld pointed out that

  Calli: Looks like most Morphy v. Morphy games are duplicate Don't know why. As far as the two dates. CKR had the best Morphy pgn of the day and it probably had the two years in there.
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: <Calli> It's not that the games are duplicates, it's that due to a quirk in how the search works all of them are listed twice.

  sachistu: Anybody know what's going on at the Rusbase site? Have not been able to connect there for a least a week. Maintenance? Other?
Mar-08-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: Concerning your call for bulletins to ascertain the true scores for T Krabbe vs V Tukmakov, 1966 and for D Rivera vs I Farago, 1966, here's a link to a publication that might be of assistance:

As you can see, IM Jaroslav Šajtar (who I believe was the arbiter of the XIIIth World Student Team Chess Championship at Örebro, Sweden held from July 30 through August 14, 1966) compiled this volume, which was published by the International Union of Students in Prague, Czechoslovakia.

I wish I had this resource. It appears on some collectors' want lists. I don't mean to tantalize you with this information; I do hope somehow this concrete lead aids you in your research.

Kind regards.

Mar-08-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: By the way, I did check Tidskrift för Schack for 1966 and 1967 (both in the year-end Registers and in the apposite 1966 issues), but came up empty.
Premium Chessgames Member
  sachistu: Thanks <luftforlife>. Sorry for the delay in responding. I have been otherwise occupied. I have Sajtar's book, but unfortunately, it only has a small selection of games and neither of those games are included. Thanks for checking TfS. I thought I had looked there, but another pair of eyes always helps. Again, thanks. Unfortunately, the question remains.
Mar-30-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: You're welcome. Good to hear from you, and good to know at least we've been on the same pages so far. I'll take another, harder look and see what I can find. Kind regards.
Premium Chessgames Member
  sachistu: I appreciate your efforts <luftforlife>. Sajtar has edited a number of these World Student Team Championship booklets, several of which I have. Apart from the round-by-round results, he typically includes 1-3 games from each round of the preliminary and final sections. This is far less than the total number of games played at these events. The booklets are useful, and his notes are interesting, but certainly not complete. Good hunting! I will be continuing my search as well.
Mar-31-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: My pleasure! I've left some notes at T Krabbe vs V Tukmakov, 1966. I've also requested definitive verification of the score for that particular game, and I hope my request proves fruitful. Hope you're well. Kind regards.
Mar-31-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: My request proved fruitful. I received a kind, gracious, and helpful reply, with definitive verification of the score and some context as well. Good news!
Premium Chessgames Member
  sachistu: Thanks <luftforlife>. I left a post at the Krabbe-Tukmakov game. One to go! (well, actually many to go!)
Mar-31-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: You're welcome! Always happy to help, and especially delighted to deliver good news. Definitude soothes.

Any other conundrums? Please let me know. Cheers!

Apr-05-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: I heard from my source, and I got the straight dope on Pavlos Gesos. Check out his page to learn more. Great work by all concerned. Hope you're well! Best wishes.

It would be a way to post the link here and then delete?

Nov-23-18  zanzibar: <Jean>/<sachistu> - caveat emptor...


Yet of the few comments most do seem to agree with the previous link's assessment.

(Personally, I don't use any sharing sites that require me to download an executable first)

Premium Chessgames Member
  sachistu: Hi <JD> I suppose I had something a little safer in mind. And thanks for your words of wisdom <zanzibar>.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Jean Defuse: ...

<No reason for paranoia, every thing is safe!> I use zippyshare over the years without problems (a simple 1-klick download) - use a better browser or take a simple download program...

-good luck-


Nov-23-18  zanzibar: <Jean Defuse> it's likely safe, according to Norton (though it seems from the comments that earlier Norton ratings raised a caution). A Yahoo board says it's safe as well, but tends to introduce a lot of pop-ups.

Sure, a good browser automatically suppresses those.

And I agree, you've probably grow comfortable using it - and that I'm probably a little bit overly cautious.

But as a general rule, not running executables from file-sharing sites is a "good idea". As in, better safe than sorry.

There are ways to make files available where one can do a direct http download without the overhead.

Sorry, if all this is unwelcome, but I really am just trying to be helpful (and cautious).

Premium Chessgames Member
  sachistu: Thanks <JD>. I saw a similar comment to yours on one of the security websites. Good to know you have had a trouble-free experience with zippyshare.
