" I have a notion that the game of chess provides us with a very attractive image of fulfilled human life, It conjures up every sort of situation that involves struggle and overcoming. At the beginning, of course, we have to concentrate too hard on getting our head around the game as to let our imagination stray across the board; but soon our heavenly spirits take flight and restrains their journey."
-- Wilhelm Heinse

|Oct-10-09|| ||whiteshark: Great work, <Tabanus>!|
For the posted game: that was mean. I've checked two German chess magazines to find some information about that tournament - completely in vain. :(
One of them - Europa Rochade, 720p. - without content and with a chaotic layout. Found lots of interesting reads as compensation. :D
|Oct-10-09|| ||Tabanus: <whiteshark> Thanks! Took me several hours, but I learned about DDR Teleschach, etc... Interesting :) |
<.. in vain> Perhaps it was a CC event??
