Kulla Tierchen: Vladimir Nabokov, the twentieth century's most impressive Russian novelist (although his best works were from his English period), composed many chess problems. He wrote that most chess players were only mildly interested in problems, and would be utterly baffled if asked to ...

Kulla Tierchen: Exactly! And how often one must hear the terms confused with one another! Tous ces gens du bas étage sont comme ça.

Kulla Tierchen: Ghoul, I saw your message only just now. I was away all day on a fool's errand, an eighty-mile round trip for nothing with all those Christmas shoppers. I was directed to what I was informed was an Alekhine sale, only to discover when I arrived that the merchandise offered ...
   Dec-20-02 Alekhine vs Hoelscher, 1933 (replies)
Kulla Tierchen: 16. Ne5 seals in the black king. After 17...Qxg6 18. Qc4+

Kulla Tierchen: Tant mieux; passons.
   Dec-19-02 Alekhine vs Ecole Polytechnique Paris, 1925 (replies)

   Dec-19-02 Najdorf vs NN, 1942 (replies)
Kulla Tierchen: When these NNs win a game against someone famous, they are all of a sudden not so shy and let the world know their name. I would too. That is why so many simultaneous games are lost by the grandmaster. They were saved and published by the amateur winner. The grandmaster ...
   Dec-19-02 Alekhine vs P de Unamuno, 1944 (replies)
Kulla Tierchen: PVS, your profile says you are a philosopher and logician, so this is perhaps not your cup of tea, nicht wahr?
   Dec-19-02 Alekhine vs E Cima, 1943 (replies)
Kulla Tierchen: This is from a 30 board simultaneous in November 1943. Alekhine won 24, drew three and lost three. Cima did not play badly; he beat Alekhine again a few days later in a 10 board clocked simultaneous, Alekhine vs E Cima, 1943 , in which Alekhine had eight wins, a draw and the ...
