|Sep-01-08|| ||Calli: <interesting to read both>|
I noticed schachlichen which is chess as an adjective. No good english word for it? chessic, chessy, chessly...
|Sep-01-08|| ||whiteshark: <Calli> Without rear cover it's User: Chessical for me like chemical or musical... :D|
But imo you can use it (chess) fine as noun here, it wouldn't lower the content. What is <chess> as adjective (in quality, character, property)? I have no idea...

|May-09-09|| ||wordfunph: Only few kibitz for Master Alexander Kevitz? He's got wins over Capa, Lsker, Marshall, Santasiere, Horowitz, seems a strong IM in today's standard..|
|Jul-11-10|| ||Lobster: Unfortunately because the database has so few games of Kevitz it does not reflect his strength at all. Hans Kmoch was of the opinion that Kevitz was a grandmaster with the White pieces, lowering his playing strength seriously by playing his very strange variations with Black.|

|Dec-26-11|| ||FSR: Kevitz was strong like bull. He was ranked third in the country on the first rating list issued by the United States Chess Federation in 1950, behind only Fine and Reshevsky. As of July 31, 1950, the top ratings were Fine (2817), Reshevsky (2770), Kevitz (2610), Dake (2598), Albert Simonson (2596), Fred Reinfeld (2593), Arnold Denker (2575), Isaac Kashdan (2574), I. A. Horowitz (2558), and Abraham Kupchik (2538). "The United States Chess Federation National Chess Ratings (as of July 31, 1950)", Chess Life, November 20, 1950, p. 3. Also available on DVD (p. 93 in "Chess Life 1950" PDF file). FIDE later awarded the GM title to Dake, Denker, and Kashdan, and the IM title to Horowitz - all of whom were rated below Kevitz.|

I'm not sure what you mean - can you explain?

|May-09-15|| ||MissScarlett: I suggested that Sydney T Sharp must be the only player to have collectively beaten Lasker, Capa and Alekhine in simuls, but I was wrong. Kevitz beat Alekhine at a Brooklyn Chess Club simul on the 13th December, 1923. The game score isn't known.|
|Sep-01-15|| ||Abdel Irada: <FSR: Kevitz was strong like bull.>|
Reminds me of a favorite comment of an old friend in Santa Cruz: "Is strong like bull! Is smart like tractor!"
|Sep-01-15|| ||MissScarlett: I tend to mix up Kevitz with Abraham Kupchik in the way others have trouble distinguishing between Charles Jaffe and Oscar Chajes. Not surprising considering they won the Manhattan Chess Club championship sixteen times between them. There are only three head-to-head games in our DB, but there must be many more.|
