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

SteinitzLives: People who do not have any ebola viruses really are news stories worthy of mass distribution.
   Oct-18-14 Arthur Bisguier (replies)
SteinitzLives: I read that Bisguier is only four degrees of separation from Morphy, (how many living players can say that!) in that he played Tartakover, in 1950 who battled just about everyone, including Blackburne in 1907 who played Anderssen in 1862, who played Morphy shortly before then.

SteinitzLives: Is someone making plans for GM Short?
   Oct-18-14 Reuben Fine (replies)
SteinitzLives: Though Fine is easy to poke fun at, (isn't everyone?) had he stayed with chess (yes, yes, speculation is free), he would no doubt have won the U.S. Championship several more times, and maybe brought Reshevsky's rep down a notch or two. I am pretty sure Fine received ...
   Oct-10-14 Millionaire Chess (2014) (replies)
SteinitzLives: <devere> Good question. The other is: how many of these chess players, especially those we have heard of, put up their own money to play vs receiving sponsorship. Delighted for any that did receive sponsorship, but probably not many are telling. Let's just hope we see ...
   Oct-10-14 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
SteinitzLives: Far be it from me to stay on topic, but isn't this the Nakamura page?
   Oct-08-14 PokerStars IoM Masters (2014) (replies)
SteinitzLives: If Pokerstars is really sponsoring this tourney, I will have to take back much of what I have said against poker. That's painful! Making Perfidious happy, that's even worse! So be it, Money talks and BS walks. Though leaving the door open for chess purity is right, without ...
   Oct-08-14 FIDE Grand Prix Baku (2014) (replies)
SteinitzLives: Fabiano is for real, until he has a slump, and then of course the nay-sayers nose in. He has had too much overall success to be anything other than legitimately the #2 highest rated player in the world. No one likes losing to someone younger, with less experience, but that's ...
   Oct-08-14 Kasimdzhanov vs D Andreikin, 2014 (replies)
SteinitzLives: Though surprised to see the Philidor trotted out in very top play, it seems fine for Olympiads, blitzes and rapids, this game was not lost in the opening, despite black's typically spacially inferior looking position around move 20. Maybe Adreikin thought it would be a ...
   Oct-07-14 A Zatonskih vs C Baginskaite, 2014
SteinitzLives: So many simple looking ways to go right, wrong or in between. Glad they chose the position after black's 97th for a chess problem in the 10/14 Chess Life. It adds focus to an ending that many think they understand, but probably don't. It taught me a bit.
