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: Flohr to Gennady Sosonko about Bogoljubov (in 1983): "Do you know when I last saw Bogoljubov? I can recall it exactly: On the 18th of march 1939 at the tournament in Riga (Kemeri). I remember this day because on the 15th of march the germans had taken Prague, Bogoljubov was glowing and

BUNA: <fisayo123: <Keypusher> It was meant to be a bit tongue in cheek but still my points about Karjakin still stand. Other than his terribly boring style of play and approach to chess, he has also become a bit of a freeloader in most tournaments he participates in. Never excites, ...
   Jun-11-17 W So vs Karjakin, 2017 (replies)
BUNA: Actually already from move 63 (Re8 instead of the possible gxh6 with three black pawns for the bishop) onwards Karjakin was playing for a stalemate. So he wasn't just hoping to get lucky but rather set up a position where stalemate would be possible.

BUNA: <Sally Simpson><keypusher>I'd like to add a couple of words, first about Boris Vainstein. Vainstein was a mathematician and economist, who between 1938 and 1953 rose to high ranks in the soviet ministry of interior (NKVD). He wasn't just some lieutenant colonel of the NKVD,

BUNA: <starry2013: They used to have qualifying matches that led up to the WC final, that made more sense than what happens now.> Yes, they used to have candidates matches in 2011 and everybody demanded a candidates tournament, "because it's more fair". Or because Gelfand qualified.
