  whiteshark: This game was played in <Vienna>, Venen is Dutch for Vienna. Wenen (Duits: Wien, Beiers: Wean) is de hoofdstad van Oostenrijk en vormt sinds 1922 een eigen deelstaat.
Oct-17-07  Karpova: <Basil Fawlty: Is something wrong?

German Guest: Will you please stop talking about the war?

Basil Fawlty: Me? You started it.

German Guest: We did not!

Basil Fawlty: Yes, you did, you invaded Poland.>

Oct-07-08  Karpova: One of the rare connections between the German language and humour*:

Jeremy Spinrad on page 4 of his August 2007 edition of "New Stories about Old Chessplayers" titled <Obituaries>:

Spinrad: <One amusing obituary deals with a man who had several peculiar interests, one of which involved chess. This is from the 'New York Times' of October 12, 1896. "Professor August Duhr, who just died at Friedland, in Mecklenburg, at the age of ninety, had for many years devoted his time and learning to the curious and useless task of translating German classical works into Greek. The best-known is his Greek edition of Goethe's 'Hermann and Dorothea.' He also published such a translation of Geibel's 'Memories of Greece.' His strangest work was a low German poetical version of Homer. The professor collected with much trouble a quantity of poems on chess, old and new, and published them in 1860.">

  vonKrolock: Interesting, but as the study of ancient Greek was a very appreciated activity at least until the 1800's, I really would not aply this sarcastic tone to Prof. Duhr's efforts - maybe his translations should even be searched and, if they arrived to show real qualities, edited.

Nov-18-08  Karpova: An American trying to contribute to a discussion during lunch in Germany:

<You must constantly try to remember the gender of every noun you want to say, then figure out whether the prepositions you want to use require the accusative, dative, or genitive case. Then you have to match the gender with the case to figure out the needed definite article in a table in your head you learned in German class, and you are almost there. Now you just have to figure out the adjective ending based on the definite article and you have part of the sentence you want to say completed. Now figure out where the verbs go in the sentence, conjugate and you are ready to add your mustard to the conversation. Unfortunately by the time you have your witty sentence about the reality show constructed in your head, the topic has already moved on to the Bundesliga.>

Oct-19-13  Karpova: Is this <Dr. Stephan Deutsch>?

I'll submit a game he played in 1920 against Vukovic in Zagreb from pages 324-325 of the December 1923 'Neue Wiener Schachzeitung'.
