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

   Aug-15-14 Petrosian vs Portisch, 1974 (replies)
SteinitzLives: I think 6. Rc1 is an underrated move and I am surprised it is not played more often. Korchnoi and Karpov had some great battles with it. When Portisch on move 19 breaks the black c pawn-white d pawn tension which can be so key, it seems hurried. Black seems to take some ...
   Aug-15-14 Petrosian vs Portisch, 1974
SteinitzLives: Portisch had a real chance to win this match, but Petrosian had the better back-up and seeming match stamina. Petrosian never looked to be in good physical shape, but looks can be deceiving when there is a strong will to win and understanding that outlasting an opponent ...
   Aug-15-14 San Antonio (1972) (replies)
SteinitzLives: What a glorious window of chess sponsorship opportunity was open but for such a brief moment thanks to the Fischer boom. A shame organizers and Fischer himself could not or would not jump in to get more sponsors to participate, and bring big money to chess. Petrosian, Karpov ...
   Aug-15-14 Portisch vs Petrosian, 1974
SteinitzLives: 9. . . . . b6 creates the impression of Q side counterplay for black, but after a few moves it's clear that it has not happened. After white's 14 f4 and 15. f5, black's three pieces sitting on the b file seem dead-in-the-water-useless. Portisch with some good timing, space ...
   Aug-12-14 I Saric vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
SteinitzLives: I guess Carlsen should be allowed to have some fun and play an offbeat opening against someone 200+ points below him to see what will happen, once in a while. What does Carlsen have to prove? He will make more serious opening choices when more is at stake. However, this could ...
   Aug-12-14 Negi vs Aronian, 2014
SteinitzLives: Carlsen's record against Aronian in classic games in this site's DB is 9-4 with 27 draws. I would say that's pretty convincing, (although in rapid, it's Aronian 11-6 with 15 draws, still it's only rapid). Both players are so young, (Carlsen younger of course) each has many ...
   Aug-12-14 Aronian vs I Ivanisevic, 2014
SteinitzLives: Prior to this game, Aronian leads the series by a convincing 4.5 - .5. I give Ivanisevic credit for playing the Benoni, he seemed good throughout.
   Aug-12-14 D Smerdon vs Aronian, 2014
SteinitzLives: In the hindsight light of Aronian's other results this tourney, this game starts to make sense. Aronian seems off-form. It makes me wonder how super GM's prepare for playing GM's and others 200+ points below them, when they may not do so regularly
   Aug-12-14 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
SteinitzLives: What always impresses me about Carlsen is his endgame tenacity, how he wins the war of attrition when a game is 5+ hours long, so often regardless of the endgame position's ups and downs during the game. His stamina and will to win remind me of Fischer. His unwillingness to ...
   Aug-05-14 Nakamura vs A Giri, 2014
SteinitzLives: Anyone with the kind of fame gifted to Nakamura has a moral obligation, that's right all you rights addicts, moral obligation to help those less fortunate in the world. He has this bestowed upon him and as a famous person should have a message for the world, and unfortunately ...
