BUNA was a chessclub in eastern Germany.
That's where I spent my youth.

For those curious I add a decent game of mine from the GDR youth correspondence chess final 1983.

BUNA: <FSR: I don't understand how Howell could play such a beginner's blunder. Or did he deliberately decide to sac his queen? Bizarre.> Yes, Howell had 3 minutes left on move 18 (!) and in this situation decided to sac his queen, apparently "to complicate matters". John Nunn in his ...

BUNA: Yacov Isaakovich Murey emigrated in 1976. In 1978 he acted as one of Korchnoi's seconds during the WCC and took part in the Moscow Interzonal 1982 as israeli citizen.

BUNA: <diceman: Why not just have the 10 best players by rating in the candidates?> Nice idea. That would have meant that the 1959 Candidates (8 players) would have taken place without Fischer (and Benko and Olafsson), as Chessmetrics ranks him #14 in July 1959. Why not drop the WCC ...

BUNA: Yakov Rokhlin was born in 1903. A russian site has a picture of his gravestone with the dates 1903 - 1996. > Rokhlin beat Lasker in a simul game in february of 1924 when Lasker for the first time visited the Soviet Union (Leningrad). Here is ...
   Sep-17-19 Tarrasch vs Vogel, 1910
BUNA: The game is indeed a classic, an example of a clean attack against a passive opponent. But you know what is strange? This game is game number 4 in Tarrasch's influential book "Die moderne Schachpartie" (The contemporary chessgame - 1912) and you can also find it in a couple of soviet ...
   Sep-14-19 D Yuffa vs McShane, 2019 (replies)
BUNA: <So basically no GM knows how to win this endgame.> That is not correct. GM Malakhov obviously knew how to win in 2009. V Malakhov vs Kuzubov, 2009 He needed only 20 moves to win black's knight after black had established the recommended position with a fianchettoed knight.

BUNA: <PJs Studio: Fischer wore down Geller in this ending with a vengeance! Amazing scientific approach by the to-be world champion.> No, the game was dead equal after 67... g3 (or even after 63.. g4). Geller threatened to give his rook in the right moment (69. ... Kh2 70.Kg4 g2 ...

   Aug-13-19 Botvinnik vs Larsen, 1970
BUNA: <Mateo: Sometimes a chess game is very mysterious. 60... Bh6? is a blunder because White could have played 61. Re8 winning another pawn. This is the reason why 60... Be7 was better. But instead, Botvinnik played 61. Rh8?. This, I cannot explain because it is very simple.> ...

BUNA: <Sokrates: According to Danish chess author Jens Enevoldsen, Alekhine once said to Reshevsky, "Sie spielen ein geschäftliches Schach" (You are playing a business-like chess), which, obviously, infuriated Reshevsky.> Alekhine repeated this judgement in his book about the ...
