Born 64. Science teacher, chess coach. Chess piqued my interest in 1998 when DFWallace mentoned it in an essay he wrote about a week he spent on a cruise ship ("A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again") but REALLY caught the bug in 2004 upon reading Charles Tevis's wonderful novel "The Queen's Gambit." Have been in thrall of this game--collecting books and sets (and even some knowledge)--ever since.

   Aug-10-07 Botvinnik vs Denker, 1946 (replies)
MissesManyMoves: This is the game. Shenk's book was released in 2006, but in fact this episode was discussed earlier, in a *terrific* (and pretty long) article by Rene Chun called "Bobby Fischer's Pathetic Endgame" (The Atlantic Monthly, Dec. 2002). It can be read @ ...
