SteinitzLives
Member since Feb-05-10
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.

   Sep-19-14 Eric Moskow
 
SteinitzLives: Moskow was featured with others in a Chess Life article called "Innocents abroad?" in the 1970s featuring a trip Moscow and other teenage players took to Sweden. Though Moscow was the lowest rated player, he seemed to have had the best time. Dr. Moskow personifies what chess ...
 
   Sep-19-14 Fischer vs Spassky, 1972
 
SteinitzLives: GM Dzhindzhihaschvilli (sp?) in a lecture about two years ago claimed to have played Fischer in some secret speed chess games in the early-mid 1980s one night. His opinion is that until the late 70's Fischer was probably unbeatable in a match, (despite not playing any real ...
 
   Sep-18-14 Paul Keres
 
SteinitzLives: Can't believe I left off Korchnoi, he could challenge for top player never to be world champion for sure. Perhaps I just wanted to block out Karpov's dominance and the Soviet government's treatment of Korchnoi during that period, which in hindsight teaches a great deal.
 
   Sep-16-14 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: I admit to being a harsh critic of Nakamura mostly due to what I perceive as a low level of maturity and professionalism. One cannot argue with his "chess playing" achievemens. He is by far the best U.S. player since Fischer, easy. No, that's not where the criticism come from.
 
   Sep-13-14 Jonathan Hawkins
 
SteinitzLives: I can recommend his book, as it is comprehensive coverage of the most common endgame principles and shows well how to apply them. It's a bit hard to agree that one can go "from amateur to IM" simply by mastering these endgame principles and applications of them, I know there ...
 
   Sep-11-14 Fischer vs Reshevsky, 1958 (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: I have always had mixed feelings about Reshevsky, and this game lends no exception. On one hand he fell for a trap that even if unseen before-hand, should have been visible OTB to a player of his strength. On the other hand, despite being busted, look how long it took Fischer ...
 
   Sep-11-14 K Smith vs Mecking, 1972 (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: Smith was more than out of his league in this tourney evidenced by not only this crushing miniature with his signature opening, but his -11 score in the tourney. Still he was popular in this region and a fun novelty figure with real good chess connections, who added pizzazz ...
 
   Sep-09-14 Spassky - Byrne Candidates Quarterfinal (1974) (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: <Petrosinic> From a practical perspective you are right, Byrne was not a real threat to become Fischer's challenger. However I find it hard to underestimate the Soviet Chess Federation's level of paranoia particularly after Spassky's devastating and humiliating loss of ...
 
   Sep-05-14 Korchnoi vs Petrosian, 1974 (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: When it comes to good sportsmanship, a historical view will show that both of these players will decidedly not be wearing the white cowboy hat. That they tick each other off is sort of like watching two hated bullies beating on eachother to the joy of the cheering rabble.
 
   Sep-05-14 Borislav Ivanov (replies)
 
SteinitzLives: One of the few good things about Ivanov is he has made everyone from beginning scholastic to the very top of the chess world, very aware of cheating. As long as we are aware, there is a better chance we will be more diligent to apprehend these ruiners of the royal game. ...
