79 years old, retired physician. Life member of USCF. Haven't played a rated game since late 80's, but follow Chess Life and play over many puzzles, games, and from time to time play my computer. Used to have a B rating, heaven knows what it is now. Home in Denver.

   Apr-12-15 Schlechter vs J Mieses, 1909 (replies)
scassislusor: Jacques Mieses, in later life, was once introduced as "Mr. Mieses" (pronounced by the introducer "Myses") Mieses corrected him, "Rather I am Meister Mieses!" The Ducheyne-Mieses introductory "Handbuch", started about 1890, has been continued to this day as one of the best one ...

scassislusor: These two players are rated experts? Really?
   Mar-18-15 Robatsch vs Weghofer, 1955 (replies)
scassislusor: Odd position: after 16 moves the number of pieces for each player that have (apparently) not been moved seems high. GM vs a nobody - did this game come from a simul?
   Mar-12-15 P Amiri vs Gleizerov, 2005 (replies)
scassislusor: Like the man in quicksand up to his neck, White misses his chance to resign by playing Qe7: and struggles on! He keeps missing the chance for 3 more moves! Black could have shortened the agony a little by Nf5+d with Ne7: to follow! Was this game in a Simul?

scassislusor: Dufresne's "Little Textbook of Chess" continues to be published (German, of course) in its 31st edition at least; about 760 pages, with 78% of content devoted to openings with 130 illustrative games. After Dufresne died in i893 (12 years after first edition), Jacques Mieses was
   Mar-09-15 L Lalla vs V A Martin, 2005 (replies)
scassislusor: As you said, VERY EASY! I'll show it to my 9 year old granddaughter.
   Mar-06-15 Ivanchuk vs Ganguly, 2014 (replies)
scassislusor: I wonder whether Black was in time trouble since Rd7 was tantamount to resignation, somewhat like Nakamura last week with his move Kh6. The rest was inescapable in both cases which each player must have seen.
   Feb-22-15 Ljubojevic vs Karpov, 1993 (replies)
scassislusor: Strange game! 28 moves and no exchanges except 1 knight apiece between 2 GMs! Were they afraid of each other? It's as though the game hadn't started till 28…knight d4!
