"She hung up and I set out the chess board. I filled a pipe, paraded the chessmen and inspected them for French shaves and loose buttons, and played a championship tournament game between Gortchakoff and Meninkin, seventy-two moves to a draw, a prize specimen of the irresistible force meeting the immovable object, a battle without armor, a war without blood, and as elaborate a waste of human intelligence as you could find anywhere outside an advertising agency." (Raymond Chandler, <The Long Goodbye>, 1953)

I am just another Chess bum from Mars who loves this game for its richness, its beauty, and its psychological aspects.

I really do not claim to be a good chess player (my current aim is to get past Elo 1100 on I like to go through old games with Stockfish to understand what's going on. If I criticize any of the masters here, I do it with all due respect, knowing that I would never be able to play on their level (which I don't mind, you don't have to be a master to enjoy a beautiful game!).

Although I do love Stockfish for the insights it provides to patzer me, I'm totally aware that human chess is just something very different than computer chess. Between human players, the battle is also psychological, and playing unnerving, unexpected or annoying moves makes them good even if they are, from Stockfish's God-like view, inaccurate.

   Jan-29-23 Pavel Potapov

   Jan-29-23 Beer vs G Neumann, 1866
generror: Beer plays Scotch? No wonder it lost. Never mix!!
   Jan-28-23 Kick Langeweg
generror: He did finish in the top half of Hoogovens (1966) though! Go Kick go!
   Jan-26-23 E Williams vs J S Mucklow, 1851
generror: Yeah, tiresome prolixity, I'm all for it! Also, reading his tournament book, I think he's also tiresomely prolix here and there.

generror: This is by far the weirdest general forum I've ever been in. So I'm feeling right at home! Also, I just wanted to say thanks to all those who put so much work into correcting game information here. Of course it isn't perfect, and I'd love to be able to submit my own changes, but ...
   Jan-26-23 Anderssen vs Kieseritzky, 1851
generror: Here's my translation of Kieseritzky's original annotations, together with my unwarranted comment to his comments. <8.Nh4> "The White only had two ways of saving the rook, that is, 8.Ke2 and 8.Nh4, because by playing 8.Rg1 they would lose the bishop by 8...Qb6." (Not true, ...
   Jan-26-23 Cochrane vs Mohishunder, 1850
generror: <Ryuenzo203106>, after <7...fxe6 8.Bxd7+ Qxd7 9.Qxg4> (D), White has a knight for a pawn, no weaknesses, and an ideal target with Black's doubled isolated pawn on the open e-file. [DIAGRAM] There's no clear win, but Stockfish evaluates this to about +8.
   Jan-26-23 Cochrane vs Mohishunder, 1850
generror: A nice early game between Cochrane and Bonnerjee, famous for his hypermodern openings. Here he plays a ...d6, which, judging from the nomenclature, seems to be the most confusing reply of all. White seems to have a slight advantage in the opening, but after the 20th move (D), the ...
