You have nothing to fear but my library.

"Ein Mensch, was ka Schach spielt, ist ka Mensch. Im Schach sitzt die Intelligenz, sag' ich. Da kann einer vier Meter lang sein, Schach muß er spielen, sonst ist er ein Tepp. Ich kann Schach. Ich bin auch kein Tepp. Jetzt frag' ich Sie; wenn Sie wollen, antworten Sie mir. Wenn Sie nicht wollen, antworten Sie nicht. Wozu hat ein Mensch den Kopf? Ich sag's Ihnen selbst, sonst zerbrechen S' Ihnen noch den Kopf, es wär' schad' drum. Zum Schach hat er den Kopf. Verstehen Sie mich? Sagen Sie ja, dann ist alles gut. Sagen Sie nein, dann sag' ich's Ihnen nochmal, weil Sie's sind."

Weltmeister Dr. Siegfried Fischer(le)
from Elias Canetti, Die Blendung, 1935

It's better to have D Love and lost than never to have D Love at all.

Rudy Kousbroek: Larkensviedje

Die ochtend zei het wrattenzwijn:
Nu moet het afgezopen lijn,
Stijnen helpt geen kweek.

Ja, drerk in plaats van woefenis:
Leven en schrijzen, room voos bis,
De wagen van de deek:

Waandag, Minsdag,
Zoensdag, Wonderdag,
Dijdag, Waterdag, Vrondag.

Zes dagen bijver zijn als nijen,
Op Vrondag vredig liggen zijen,
Dat maakt een woede geek.

Philosophy for beginners:
I do not think about things I don't think about.

   Nov-20-22 J Heral vs Anderssen, 1873
sneaky pete: The tournamentt book: "Why not 49.bxc4?" [DIAGRAM] That's what I asked myself looking at this game again. After the "normal" 49... Rb7+ 50.Kc1 ... what can black do?
   Nov-15-22 J Heral vs Bird, 1873 (replies)
sneaky pete: 12... Bg4+ may be premature. After the obvious alternative 12... Nxe4 [DIAGRAM] white looks completely lost.
   Nov-14-22 Capablanca vs J Davidson, 1911 (replies)
sneaky pete: "Sinul 26b" and <Capablanca scored +25=0-0> Hmm ...
   Nov-12-22 M Fleissig vs Paulsen, 1873
sneaky pete: Position after 49.Bc1 .. [DIAGRAM] The 1874 tournament book gives this quick win: 49... Bxf3 50.Kxf3 g4+ 51.Kf2 Kh2 52.Bf4+ g3+ [DIAGRAM] and the b-pawn queens. After 68.Kf2 Be6 with ... Bd5 black can aim for the same trick.
   Oct-26-22 P de Rooi vs H van Donk, 1961 (replies)
sneaky pete: After 23.exd4 Qxb2 [DIAGRAM] I don't see any defence for white. 24.Bc2 Rf2 25.Rc1 Bg4 or 24.Be2 Rf2 is hopeless and 24.Ng6+ Kg7 doesn't help him either. Very nice and enterprising play by Van Donk.
   Oct-15-22 C van de Loo vs M Hesseling, 1983 (replies)
sneaky pete: I am the source, that should be enough.
   Sep-24-22 Staunton vs Cochrane, 1842 (replies)
sneaky pete: 20... Qxd2 21.Nxf6+ Kh8 22.Rxg7 .. [DIAGRAM]
   Sep-20-22 V Knorre vs Anderssen, 1864 (replies)
sneaky pete: 9... Nd3 10.Qxd3 .. isn't much different from what happens in the game.
   Sep-19-22 E Rueger vs M Esserman, 2015
sneaky pete: 48... Rxf2+ 49.Ke3 Rxa2 [DIAGRAM] Hmm ...
   Sep-04-22 Alexander Alekhine (replies)
sneaky pete: During those years Alekhine didn't live in Germany but in France. Think of his scientific articles published in the Pariser Zeitung. Of course there was no danger for him, because he always made the right moves.
