This quote is originally from <Lasker's Manual of Chess> (4th Book, Chapter 'The Evolution of the Theory of Steinitz'), e. g. pp. 160-161 of the 21st Century Edition (Russell Enterprises, 2010). Lasker introduces this part as Steinitz' maxim.
|Feb-05-14|| ||Cemoblanca: <Karpova> I had read that part on Wikipedia:|
Well, I didn't want to put as a source, because I am currently reading the above mentioned book & was exactly at page 104. ;) However, thanks for the info.

Damn, this looks like an Alekhine-NN simul game.
|Jul-14-14|| ||posoo: "Aljechin eat"
LOL da best yet.
POSOO SAID IT.
|Jul-14-14|| ||perfidious: <posoo>, aka Moe Rawn, has spoken.|
|Jul-14-14|| ||posoo: LOL, just a little heloose dat you aint comin up wit da good puns?|
nice try on "Moe Rawn" porfoodus. but posoo reigns when it comes to dis pun, i'm afraid.
Now quiet! I am trying to catch FSR!
|Jul-16-14|| ||posoo: Lol it just occurs to me that the reason for perfidious's ad hominem attack on me is that he simply didn't know the proper Russian pronunciation of "Alekhine."|
Had he been more worldly, he would not have seen the need to disparage my clever pun in this way.
I understand that the vitriol surrounding this thread has defeated all chance of this game being made "Game of the Day," and regret that it has devolved to this point. I apologize to the chessgames community for being too clever by half, and will confine myself to more obvious puns in the future, a la "Moe Rawn."
POSOO SAID IT.
|Nov-04-14|| ||Phony Benoni: "Crazy Eights" was a card game from my youth. I don't know if it's been played in the last half-century.|
In the classical Queen's Gambit, Black's LSB often spends his life staring at a pawn stuck in front of him, like an unlucky sports fan whose seat is behind a post. But in this game--Oh Happy Day!--he's got all the room a bishop could ever hope for, and can flit all over the board, free as a bird.
Unfortunately, the game is being played on the dark squares, so he can't do anything about Black's gruesome fate.
Be careful what you wish for.
|Nov-04-14|| ||greenfield67: <posoo: has defeated all chance of this being made "Game of the Day">. Reverse psychology at work on chessgames.com, 4 months in the brewing. And while we're here, we may as well restart the debate on the pronunciation of Alekhine. As I understand it, there is widespread agreement on the first syllable.|
|Nov-04-14|| ||Bubo bubo: A trapped rook gets caught by a bold king. Neat!|
|Nov-04-14|| ||morfishine: <greenfield67> Regarding the pronunciation of 'Alekhine' numerous opinions by so called "experts" have been submitted. These include Alek-Hine, Alek-Heen, Alyek-Heen, Alyek-Hine, etc. |
I like the following, which sounds like 'Al-air-hin'
Now, lets get to work on Pitirotjirathon and after that Xylogiannopoulos
|Nov-04-14|| ||Penguincw: Great! Another GOTD/POTD with this page stretch. I wonder whose fault it is this time: Alekhine vs Yates, 1922. :||
|Nov-04-14|| ||Castleinthesky: <Cenoblanca> thanks for the book recommendation, I just ordered it. To state the obvious, this game is very instructive on positional play and I am amazed that Marcozy (correctly) called this game lost at move 15 and then showed how with minimal commentary. A small error leads to a methodical destruction of position.|
|Nov-04-14|| ||kevin86: The black rook is soon lost as either rook moved to f8, blocks the king's escape and white mates in two!|
|Nov-04-14|| ||Domdaniel: It's Al-yokh-een. Definitively.|
|Nov-04-14|| ||Annie K.: Well... it is true that Al-YOKH-een is the correct pronunciation of this rather common Russian name. However, Alexander Alekhine personally insisted that his name be pronounced differently from the norm. He demanded to be called Al-YEKH-een, and his wish was generally respected then - and should be respected still.|
For anyone still unclear on the pronunciation, check out the audio feature on his player page linked above. :)
|Nov-04-14|| ||Marmot PFL: Yates was strong player for his day but totally outclassed here by Alekhine. Today the top players have to work much harder to stay on top.|
|Nov-04-14|| ||Marmot PFL: A Yates win over Alekhine (one of two).
Alekhine vs Yates, 1923
|Nov-04-14|| ||Once: Fabulous game and an excellent kingscrusher video. Enjoyed both very much.|
|Nov-04-14|| ||Olsonist: I was wondering about Rc8 and KC covers that nicely his video.|
|Jan-30-15|| ||welhelm1982: During the game the board was shaking and that confuses the black|
|Jan-30-15|| ||offramp: I have annotated this game on a bit of paper. If you want I'll send it to you.|
|Aug-08-15|| ||SpiritedReposte: What a perfect closing combo. Almost Capa-like.|
|Feb-20-16|| ||grinlog: Una partida muy instructiva.|
|Jun-27-16|| ||thegoodanarchist: No one understood this game until Maroczy published his deep and thorough annotations, reprinted here|
