"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.

   May-18-23 B Jacobson vs M Paragua, 2019 (replies)
sneaky pete: Maybe 23... Rc4 24.Rxc4 Bxc4 25.Rc3 .. was played [DIAGRAM] and now something like 25... a5 which is impossible with the incorrect score we have now.

sneaky pete: I don't even know who this Greg Abbott is, but I bet he's a big oaf. Will I now be suspended as well? It would make me feel important.
   May-06-23 B Frank vs I Plukker, 1926
sneaky pete: As Weenink has indicated, 27.bxc3 .. would have refuted the attack. [DIAGRAM] After 27... Na2+ 28.Kd2 Qxc3+ 29.ke2 .. or 28... Nxc3 29.Qxb7 .. white has a Steinitzian King.

sneaky pete: The Oxford Encyclopedia gives Walker, Chess Studies, 1844 as its source. The year is 183? and there is no indication of odds, but that may be a mistake by either Walker or Levy and O'Connell. The Big Mac usually gave QR-odds to this kind of opponent. I couldn't find the game in ...
