   Nov-23-19 S Madhurima vs S Narenthran, 2011
sachistu: Nothing really new here. The first 20 moves were played in Gelenczei-Alfoldy, HUN-ch qf,1952 where White resigned after 20...Bd7. The analysis through move 15 has been known since at least the 1930's, and perhaps even earlier. (see Reinfeld's analysis in Chess Review,May,1933,p22 ...
   Oct-21-19 Saemisch vs Nimzowitsch, 1930 (replies)
sachistu: <Phony Benoni> your suspicion of Oct 16 is well founded. The score in DSz 1931 has 56...Re6-h6. Yet another example of how we can't trust the citations unless we have the actual source. I'll submit a correction slip
   Oct-15-19 J Petersen vs A Kier, 1924
sachistu: Black's 22nd was ...Rae8 (not ...Rac8). See Schackvarlden, 1924, July, p219-220 and Skakbladet 1924, p79. This was actually the Danish Chess Union (Dansk Skak Union) or DSU Congress played in May, 1924. I'll submit a correction slip.
   Jul-06-19 Alburt vs Kaidanov, 1996
sachistu: Black played 34...fxg4+, which turned out badly. FM Aviv Friedman commented "no better is 34...Be7 35.gxf5 and wins", but is it that clear? After 35...exf5, does White have anything better than 36.Ng3? It seems Black can play 36...Ne6. 36.Ne3? seems to fail to 36...Rd2! and 36.e6 ...
   May-10-19 Capablanca vs Lasker, 1921 (replies)
sachistu: Yes <PhonyBenoni> this is apparently what happened. Alternatively, there could have been a problem during the upload that caused the remaining moves (22-24) to be treated as a comment by the parser. Usually, this stems from a missing period in the comment or improper use of a
   May-09-19 Lasker vs Maroczy, 1902
sachistu: Instead of 23.Be2, much stronger seems 23.Re2! Apart from attacking both Black Queens, White threatens 24.Qe7#, which looks impossible to meet without heavy material loss. Analysis aside, there are two problems with the game given here. As mentioned by <MissScarlett>, there ...
   Apr-25-19 Emanuel Lasker / Muller / Hennefe vs Richard Teichmann / Weyland / Zimm, 1919
sachistu: In case the correction slip somehow 'slipped through the cracks', I'll submit one to include the players identified by <TheFocus>. The game (and player names) appears in the March 1920 issue of BCM page 88-89.
   Apr-15-19 Ditlevsen
sachistu: <martin moller> Is this the same person as D.Ditlevsen given in the game H.Poulsen-D.Ditlevsen, Herning 1936? (re: Skakbladet, 1936, p.105) Skakbladet indicates Ditlevsen was also from Maribo. If this is the same person, the name given on this site should be Ditlevsen. I ...
   Feb-28-19 Marshall vs A Beauchemin, 1898
sachistu: It seems the ECO code should be C71. It only reaches C91 by 'accident' through a series or errors beginning with 7.0-0? (7.dxe5! is much stronger as demonstrated in Koltanowski-Prins, Hastings, 1937. It is worth noting that game also was a transposition this time from B00 e.g. 1.d4
   Feb-19-19 Kashdan vs Pasternak, 1933
sachistu: The location was Collinsville, Connecticut and Black was Charles Pasternack. Kashdan's result was +29-3 according to Brooklyn Daily Eagle June 8, 1933. Lahde's book on Kashdan claimed the result was +25-3. I'll submit a correction slip.

  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.

Rudolf Rezso Charousek (kibitz #162)

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.
