Unbeknownst to you all, my English improved when I visited New York near the end of the 19th century. I gave my blessing to Dr. Vladimir Kutchercockov to extract some of my dna after my death and to use it to clone a modern version of me. When I died in 1900 I saw a white light that guided me to be able to view chess history as it unfolded. Finally in 1960, descendants of Dr. Kutchercockov (Drs' Blase, Hohumbivlunt, and Lecter) reconstituted me.

Rather than return to chess which is pretty much what caused the ill health leading to my first death, I took a job as a writer for the ground-breaking publication: Churlish Choice Chess under the pseudonym, Dr. Cryovclapp.

I also write for this publication as a "Visiting Esteemed Author" sponsored by a grant from the Foundation for a Better Way to End World Kibitzing. Although my stipend is beneath minimal, I am given free room and board in a local slaughterhouse, where I am housed in extreme comfort including complementary trips to the soup kitchen, and refreshing use of a Port-a-John.

My new life under these improved circumstances, allows me to see the world for the loathesome promise it offers. My optimism knows no bounds. Full Member

   Nov-21-14 Ernst Gruenfeld
SteinitzLives: <Miss Scarlett> <I'm going to honour the man by getting legless this evening.> You can always use pegs for your legs to match those driven by your scriven well into your head, which is also quite dead.
   Nov-21-14 Anand vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
SteinitzLives: assuming black plays Nc6, the doubled c pawns are worth it.
   Nov-20-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
SteinitzLives: Carlsen is just trying to win the match, not satisfy fans. If game 10 is a win for Anand, Carlsen will play differently, but if it's a draw, more of the same. This is hardly the first World Ch. match where the leader in the match played for "protect-the-lead- draws". It makes ...
   Nov-06-14 Walter Shawn Browne (replies)
SteinitzLives: Remember that when Browne was at his peak ranking in 75 and 76, the world of chess was not wide open media- technology-wise, and chess news took weeks and even months to get around, unless it involved the World Ch. There were very few weekly chess magazines in the world, and ...
   Nov-06-14 Kramnik vs E Inarkiev, 2014 (replies)
SteinitzLives: 16 . . . . Bf6 seems a flawed plan. What does black get in return for giving white the two B'S? Kramnik handles the two B's as well as any top GM anyway. The black B should have stayed e7 to help fight for space on the Q side. Black gets stymied on the Q side shortly after 18.
   Nov-04-14 Grischuk vs E Inarkiev, 2014 (replies)
SteinitzLives: Space advantage, then pawn structure advantage, then space advantage, good trades, better king position, desperate moves by an opponent, passed pawns, and it's 1-0 I have seen wins of this type on the Q side not only in the English, but in Catalans too.
   Nov-04-14 Ding Liren vs Kramnik, 2014
SteinitzLives: Bad pawns yield good files. Historically, not the most promising variation of the QGD for Kramnik to choose, but good enough for him to get imbalances and draw. Early on the two Bs compensate for the bad Ps, and then when Vlad trades one B off, the black R's give comp for the ...

SteinitzLives: But not as stubborn as one would expect.
   Nov-04-14 Will (replies)
SteinitzLives: Oh no! Has G. Gordon Liddy, taken up chess? It will never be the same. Open-carry chess tournaments, searing flesh tie breaks, break-ins and buggings at the chess hotel venues? Chess will be tossed into a bay of pigs!
   Nov-02-14 W M Brooke (replies)
SteinitzLives: Brooke should have written a book, On how to play in a simul, like a chess-feral animal. I wonder who has the best overall record against GMs in simuls.
