|Apr-17-14|| ||perfidious: ....makes me feel sad for the rest.|
|Apr-17-14|| ||Conrad93: No, I'm sure she's good, but bloggers are not taken seriously by academics.|
She would not be accepted as a legitimate source by any college.
|Apr-17-14|| ||RookFile: In other words, you can't point to any example of anything she has said that is false.|
|Apr-17-14|| ||diceman: <RedShield: Is there any chess player who isn't a Morphy fan?>|
The Duke of Brunswick/Count Isouard.

these guys gained immortality through their loss.
My guess for a non-Morphy-fan would be Harrwitz.
|Apr-17-14|| ||perfidious: A vote for Staunton from this quarter.|
|Apr-17-14|| ||diceman: <john barleycorn: these guys gained immortality through their loss>|
So how come we aint buying Carlsen opera tickets?
...or maybe you are?
|Apr-17-14|| ||john barleycorn: <diceman> I throw in my years ticket for Borussia Dortmund. That's more his style imo. Than we get him thoroughly intoxicated and thats it. Carlsen will gain immortality from the loss against us.|
|Apr-17-14|| ||Petrosianic: Harrwitz and Staunton are two good guesses. Alexander Cockburn, formerly of "The Nation", would be another.|
He did a real hit piece on Morphy in his book, "Idle Passion: Chess and the Dance of Death", which did a hit on chess itself. Even though Cockburn had no training in either chess or psychology, he wrote a book trying to explain how the two interacted. Weird.
|Apr-17-14|| ||Conrad93: Regardless of whether I can or cannot does not matter. Bloggers will never be a credible source. They are mostly amateurs. |
What Batgirl does is reword old articles.
I would rather read something original from William Winter.
|Apr-17-14|| ||Conrad93: Real historians > wannabe's.|
|Apr-17-14|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: Conrad, are you in college right now?|
|Apr-17-14|| ||N0B0DY: <Wyatt Gwyon> All these years <N0B0DY> thought he was a grade school dropout.|
|Apr-17-14|| ||zanzibar: I can't help myself...
<Real> "historians rarely make history, but they do remake it".
Batgirl is more of a historic journalist, which is slightly different from a <"Real"> historian.
|Apr-17-14|| ||john barleycorn: <real historians>? a camel of a word.
Do we have any <historians> here besides the selfstyled?|
<A historian is a person who studies and writes about the past and is regarded as an authority on it. Historians are concerned with the continuous, methodical narrative and research of past events as relating to the human race; as well as the study of all history in time. If the individual is concerned with events preceding written history, the individual is a historian of prehistory. Although "historian" can be used to describe amateur and professional historians alike, it is reserved more recently for those who have acquired graduate degrees in the discipline. Some historians, though, are recognized by publications or training and experience. "Historian" became a professional occupation in the late nineteenth century as research universities were emerging in Germany and elsewhere.>

Who is William Winter?
|Apr-17-14|| ||diceman: <john barleycorn:

Donna Summer's husband?
|Apr-17-14|| ||keypusher: <I would rather read something original from William Winter.>|
This is so far beyond clueless that it wraps around into something like genius.
Anyway, here you go, Conrad93. See ughaibu's post from 2004 in the link. Unfortunately it's a paraphrase.
Botvinnik vs W Winter, 1936
|Apr-17-14|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: <<keypusher><This is so far beyond clueless that it wraps around into something like genius.>>|
Yeah it's pretty damn funny.
|Apr-17-14|| ||Mating Net: I'll give Knight odds that Morphy is rolling over in his grave after reading the last couple posts on his page.|
