Final position

The powerful Black h3-passed pawn is actively supported by both the Black f4-knight and Black h4-king, with the Black f7-rook ready to swing over to the g- or h- files as needed to help support the passer.

Seirawan's comment on the reason for Black's resignation:

<There is no stopping the h-pawn: 55.Rh8+ Nh5 56.Kf2 Rg7 and the pawn scores a touchdown.>

Seirawan's comments:


A very fine move which earns Black the advantage. Kasparov dodges 14...Qxf4? 15.Qd4+ Kg8 16.Qb4 or 16.Qc5, going after the a5-Knight. Now White is cursed with having to guard the f4- pawn, the b2-pawn and the c4-square. Black has the advantage.>

Quem foi Alexander Kevitz?

Caros colegas,
Vocês sabem quem foi Alexander Kevitz?
Alexander Kevitz, born January 9, 1902 in Brooklyn, New York, was the Manhattan Chess Club Champion in 1928-29, 1935-36, 1945-46 and 1946-47. He placed 3rd in the New York 1931 international tournament, and 8th in the first US Championship tournament at New York, 1936. Kevitz represented the United States several times in international team matches, his most noted result being his 1.5-0.5 score against Igor Bondarevsky at the USSR - USA match in Moscow, 1946.
Major chess results

Kevitz defeated world champion Jose Raul Capablanca in a simultaneous display at New York 1924, and defeated former world champion Emanuel Lasker in a 1928 simultaneous, also in New York. He won the Manhattan Chess Club Championship in 1927, 1928-29, and 1935-36. He also won the Manhattan Championship in 1946 and 1947.[4][5] During those eras, the Manhattan Championship was at the level of a strong International tournament. Kevitz also represented the Manhattan club in the "Metropolitan Chess League".

Kevitz made his international debut at Bradley Beach 1929, with 4/9 for 8th place; world champion Alexander Alekhine won. Kevitz scored 7/11 at New York 1931 for 3rd place, as Capablanca won. In the 16th Marshall Chess Club Championship 1932, Kevitz scored 9/13 for 2nd place, behind Reuben Fine.In the 17th Marshall Chess Club Championship 1933-34, Kevitz scored 8/11, tied 2nd-3rd, again behind Fine. In the United States Chess Championship, New York 1936, Kevitz scored 7.5/15 for 8th place, as Samuel Reshevsky won. In the team match, USA vs USSR at Moscow 1946, Kevitz made the best American result with 1.5/2 against Igor Bondarevsky.He drew both of his games against Borislav Milic in a 1950 radio match with Yugoslavia. He placed 13th at the U.S. Open at Milwaukee 1953. Kevitz lost to Paul Keres in a USA vs USSR team match at New York 1954, and he lost both his games against Alexander Kotov in a USA vs USSR team match at Moscow 1955. In the Manhattan Chess Club Championship, 1955-56, Kevitz scored 8.5/15 for 6-7th place, and defeated his student, Arthur Bisguier, a future Grandmaster, who was then U.S. champion.

His peak rating of 2578 was in November 1931, good for a tied 29th in the world. This is a strong International Master level, although he was never formally granted that title. On the first official United States Chess Federation rating list, July 31, 1950, Kevitz ranked third at 2610, behind only Reuben Fine and Samuel Reshevsky.

In his later years, Kevitz was active in correspondence chess, often playing under the pseudonym 'Palmer Phar' (he worked at Palmer Pharmacy).

Theoretical contributions

Kevitz made important contributions to several chess openings. In the Reti Opening, he developed the line 1.Nf3 d5 2.c4 dxc4 3.e4. The variation of the Symmetrical English Opening (A31) arising after 1.c4 c5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 e5 5.Nb5 d5 is often referred to as the Kevitz Gambit. In the English Opening, Flohr-Mikenas variation (A18), the line 1.c4 Nf6 2.Nc3 e6 3.e4 Nc6 is known as the Kevitz Variation. The variation 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 Nc6 is sometimes called the Kevitz-Trajkovic Defence[, alternatively the Black Knights' Tango or Mexican Defence. In the Nimzowitsch Defence, 1.e4 Nc6, the Kevitz Variation continues 2.d4 e5. In the 1940s, Kevitz analyzed a new idea in the Ruy Lopez, Marshall Attack, after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.0-0 Be7 6.Re1 b5 7.Bb3 0-0 8.c3 d5 9.exd5 Nxd5 10.Nxe5 Nxe5 11.Rxe5 c6 12.Bxd5 cxd5 13.d4 Bd6 14.Re3, which prepares 15.h3 in the event of 14...Qh4.

Kevitz was respected by his chess rivals as an original player, thinker, and analyst. He was active in tournament play until age 78 in 1980, the year before his death.

Honza Cervenka: <bravado1: This game must have been played earlier because according to the official bio Julius Kozma died in 1975.>
I would say (a bit paraphrasing Tal who was once in similar situation) that news about Julius Kozma's death in 1975 are a bit exaggerated. I think that he is still alive (at least I never heard that he has died yet) but he was undoubtedly alive in late 1980s when he was quite active as a chess writer. For example, he has writen a book published in 1989 related to history of chess world championships since Steinitz vs Zukertort to Kasparov vs Karpov matches.

Benzol: There is also Edmund Kozma
The strange thing here is that Jeremy Gaige has him born 14th of October 1901 and passing away on the 22nd of December 1981 yet there are games from 2006.
Are there a number of Edmund Kozma's and is Kozma a common surname? Was there more than one Julius Kozma?

Vocês sabem quem foi Johannes Zukertort?

Caros colegas,
Vocês sabem quem foi Johannes Zukertort?
Johannes Hermann Zukertort was born on the 7th of September 1842 in Lublin, Poland. His early chess career had a lot to do with Adolf Anderssen against whom he played two matches. He lost in Berlin 1868 (+3, =1, -8) and won in 1871 (+5, =0, -2) and it was on the strength of this second match that he was invited to play in the London tournament of 1872. He finished in 3rd place behind Wilhelm Steinitz and Joseph Henry Blackburne. He lost a short match against Steinitz after this and became a naturalized British citizen in 1878. The peak of his career came with his victory in the London tournament of 1883, 3 points ahead of Steinitz and 5 1/2 points ahead of Blackburne who came 3rd. In 1886 he and Steinitz played the First World Championship Match. The strain proved too much and Zukertort not only lost the match (+5, =5, -10) but his health was seriously affected. He passed away from a cerebral haemorrhage after playing a game in Simpson's Divan in London in 1888.

In Breslau Zukertort met the leading chess player Adolf Anderssen and studied with him. Among many other notable matches he played with Anderssen, he defeated him in 1866, lost in 1868 by a score of eight wins, three losses, one draw, and finally defeated him convincingly (5-2; no draws) in a match in 1871.[4][5] In 1867 he moved to Berlin and in 1872 to London. In that year, he played Wilhelm Steinitz in London, losing 9-3 (7 losses, 1 win, 4 draws).[5]

Although Zukertort lost both his matches against Steinitz, he proved that he was superior to other opponents throughout the late 1870s and early 1880s.[6] During this period top-class tournaments were rare[7] and Zukertort's best performances were mostly in matches, notably against Anderssen in 1871 and Joseph Henry Blackburne in 1881 (6 wins, 2 losses, 5 draws).[6][8] Nonetheless Zukertort was one of the most successful tournament players of his time: 3rd behind Steinitz and Blackburne at London, 1872; 1st at Cologne and 2nd at Leipzig in 1877; tied for 1st with Simon Winawer at the Paris International Chess Congress in 1878 and beat Winawer in the play-off; 2nd at Berlin in 1881, behind Blackburne; tied for 4th at Vienna in 1882; 1st at London in 1883, 3 points ahead of Steinitz.[3]

Zukertort's win in the London 1883 chess tournament was his most significant success: he won his games against most of the world's leading players, scoring 22/26, and he finished 3 points ahead of Steinitz, who was second with 19/26.[9] This tournament established that Steinitz and Zukertort were clearly the best two players in the world, and led to the World Chess Championship match between these two.[10]

The 1886 World Chess Championship match lasted from 11 January to 29 March 1886. After building up a 4-1 lead Zukertort wilted, lost 4 of the last 5 games and lost the match by 12½-7½.[11]

After this defeat, Zukertort's health suffered and he was a greatly weakened player for the remaining two years of his life. Diagnoses of his ailments include rheumatism, coronary heart disease, kidney problems, and arteriosclerosis. His results after the 1886 match declined steeply: 7th at London and 3rd at Nottingham in 1886; 15th at Frankfurt and 4th at London in 1887; lost a match in 1887 against Blackburne (1 win, 5 losses, and 8 draws); 7th at London in 1888.[3]

Poor health and lack of physical stamina appeared to be one of Zukertort's two long-term weaknesses: some commentators attributed to illness the severity of his defeat in the 1872 match against Steinitz;[12] in the 1883 London tournament he won 22 of his first 23 games, enough to give him an uncatchable lead, but lost his last 3 games; and he initially built up a 4-1 lead against Steinitz in 1886, but then his performance sharply deteriorated.[13][11] His other weakness was that, while no one had greater attacking flair, Zukertort never approached Steinitz' understanding of positional play and Steinitz often out-maneuvered him fairly simply.[7]

Unlike the majority of attacking players, Zukertort preferred openings such as 1. c4 and 1. Nf3 that were closed or semi-closed and offered the possibility of transpositions—in fact in the early 1880s 1. Nf3 was known as "Zukertort's Opening", 40 years before it became known as the Réti Opening.[7][14]

In his prime Zukertort also excelled at playing while blindfolded. In 1876, he played sixteen games simultaneously while blindfolded, winning twelve and losing only one.[3]

Later life

Zukertort died 20 June, 1888, in London from a cerebral hemorrhage after playing a game in a tournament Simpson's Divan, which he was leading at the time.[3] He is buried in Brompton Cemetery in London.


It is said that Steinitz and Zukertort, present at the same dinner party, both rose in response to a toast to the "greatest chess-player in the world". Research by Edward G. Winter suggests that this story has been embellished.[15]

Vocês sabem quem é Daniel John King?

Caros colegas,
Vocês sabem quem é Daniel John King?
Daniel John King was born on the 28th of August 1963 in Beckenham, UK. He was awarded the IM title in 1982 and the GM title in 1989. In tournaments he was 4th= at Bern 1987, 4th= in the British Championship 1987, 5th= at London 1988, 2nd= at Dortmund 1988 and 2nd after Bent Larsen at London 1989.

When at his most active as a player of the game, he made solid progress, picking up the International Master title in 1982 and the Grandmaster title in 1989. King won minor tournaments around the world and recorded promising results at some of the more prestigious events, for example 4th= at Bern 1987, 4th= British Championship 1987, 1st= (with Boris Gelfand) at the Sydney Open 1988, 5th= London 1988, 2nd= Dortmund 1988 and 2nd (after Bent Larsen) London 1989. At the Geneva Young Masters in 1990, he shared first place with the Australian, Ian Rogers. There then followed a parallel media career that spanned the presenter, commentator, reporter, analyst spectrum and this most likely impacted on his playing career, by limiting the opportunity for dedicated research and study. Nevertheless, as a professional player for more than 20 years, he has continued to play chess at a high level, including the top leagues of the Bundesliga and 4NCL.

King also achieved international team honours, representing England at the European Team Championship (Haifa 1989) and at the Reykjavik VISA Chess Summit of 1990, the latter being the scene of a celebrated victory over the Soviet team and a team silver medal.[1]

Generally known as 'Dan' or 'Danny', he is a well-respected trainer and a coach to many of the UK's brightest chess prospects. An author of more than 15 chess books, his subject matter has ranged from the preparatory Winning with the Najdorf to the self-tutoring How Good is your Chess and Test Your Chess.
