   Apr-16-07 F A Hoffmann vs A Petrov, 1844 (replies)
Stonewaller2: <Nasruddin Hodja> A woodpusher's comments: my personal preference as Black is for Staunton's venerable 6. ... ♗d6 in your lines (a) and (b) above, and Black doesn't have to accept Boden's Gambit. Other than those fine points, a nicely stated argument for the Petroff
   Apr-12-07 V Malakhov vs Areshchenko, 2005 (replies)
Stonewaller2: <kevin86: ... White forces the queen to move to g6.> Not quite; see <MiCrooks>'s comment below. Black could play ... ♕xh3, after which one of the points of ♘xe5 is that it both guards against ... ♕xg4+ and threatens ♕xd7#. Me, I was looking ...
   Apr-11-07 O Feuer vs O'Kelly, 1934 (replies)
Stonewaller2: <dbquintillion> is correct about the ♙'s first, optionally two-square, move and en passant. See HJR Murray's History of Chess, the classic reference. He reported seeing al-shatranj (Arab, old-style, chess) players whipping out initial two-square ♙ moves to ...
   Apr-11-07 Alberic O'Kelly de Galway (replies)
Stonewaller2: Sounds like here's another member of the Wild Geese of Chess, along with Paul Morphy whose uncle, born a Murphy, emigrated to Spain around the same time as O'Kelly's family moved to Belgium.
   Apr-10-07 J Schulten vs Horwitz, 1846 (replies)
Stonewaller2: A pretty thing about this miniature is Black's ♙c6 left en prise from move 8 on. White never has the time to exchange it, having instead to defend against mutliple threats, ending in a forced mate after 15. ... ♕b3?. Nice!
   Apr-09-07 So vs F El Taher, 2006 (replies)
Stonewaller2: <Alekhinelover: What if 6...Nf2 7.Qh5 O-O? Can white still get a win?> ♘f3-g5 looks tempting, but see my earlier caveat. Whatever. Black's sixth in the text sure looks like he wanted to prevent ♕h5.
   Mar-30-07 D Vasiesiu vs G Szabo, 2001 (replies)
Stonewaller2: My first thought was 29. ♖cf1, is this just slower or is there something more horribly wrong about it?
   Mar-29-07 S K Bru vs Movsesian, 2001 (replies)
Stonewaller2: <kevin86> I wouldn't call ... ♕f1 a "nonsense" move after seeing the way the White ♔ is hemmed in and how his ♖h1 is the only other defender for his ♙h3. It more or less jumps out. <playground player> The slumps come to us all, the difficult ...
   Mar-27-07 S Lorenz vs A Orlov, 2001 (replies)
Stonewaller2: <fm viraf> That's why chess is such an easy game, all you have to do is find good squares for your pieces and move them there. ;)
   Mar-20-07 H Hamdouchi vs M Bezold, 1999 (replies)
Stonewaller2: It would be more fun, and a lot harder, to look at this one from White's 34th, when he moves the first ♘ en prise in order to open up lines of attack.
