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: Lasker and Capablanca may not seem like an apples to oranges comparison, but so many "who was greater" debates are. Consider different eras each peaked in, and different competitors faced. C'mon, they were both awesome.

SteinitzLives: My Chess Club would play matches against medium or minimum security inmates at the Lorton Reformatory in VA (which before its demolition some years ago, housed the bulk of D.C. inmates). A few were good players, but most played way too fast and of course, saw too little, since

SteinitzLives: Just a big thank you to everyone who works on this project. I am a huge fan of game collection books and chess history. This labor from so many of you creating this awesome collection of tournaments and matches, which must involve some great toil and love, does not go ...

SteinitzLives: Ran it thru an engine at a 19 ply search. 18 . . . . Bd7 seems best and gives =. 19. Bd5 is given which seems to ignore any immediate attempt to double rooks on d file, and assumes out-posted Bishop for white is worth more. 19 . . . .Rac8 20. f3 b5 21. Bf2 = After Nakas 18 . .
   Jan-09-14 Alekhine vs Yates, 1923
SteinitzLives: One of the earliest KID's by a well known player, following lots of modern principles. Alekhine could have played f4 a couple of times which would have helped him, or sought a Q trade to go into a less than = endgame, but noooooo, little Alex (who had few if any droogs) had to
   Jan-03-14 D Bojkov vs V Panbukchian, 2005
SteinitzLives: 8 . . . c6 is probably the losing move. 8. . . e6 is clearly better 9. dxe6 Bxe6 10. Bf4 Na6 11. a3 (11. Qxd8+ Rxd8 and 12. Nxc7+ is a big mistake Nxc7 and if 13. Bxc7 Bb4+ is likely quite winning for black. Still after 11. a3 Qe7 white seems fine and fritz says white is ...

   Oct-19-13 Lasker vs Ed. Lasker, 1924 (replies)
SteinitzLives: This game, though it took forever to play through, and study, proved to be worth the effort from an instructional perspective (Shereshevsky uses it in his famous endgame book, btw). Some GOTD name suggestions: These Laskers were no baskers; Pork New York, The King's the ...

SteinitzLives: Just bought his book of 100 games and have skimmed through it. Not a lot of text in the annotations and lots of variations, so not great for the under 2000 set, but he gives his insight on the opening variations played which may get out of date, but still useful in ...
