"Alas! The truth of that prophecy spoken long ago is fulfilled! <Telemus>, the seer, son of Eurymus, a tall fine man, lived here once, the greatest of prophets, and grew old here as soothsayer among the Cyclopes. He told me that all of this would come to pass one day, and I would lose my sight at Odysseus’ hands."

— Homer, Odyssey, book ix (


My first name is Hagen, friends call me Heio. Because of my former profession I never could play chess seriously myself, but I have studied it seriously for decades.

Some of my postings result from software tests I do for someone else.

Telemus: Gerardus Wilhelmus Johannes Zittersteyn according to C.N. 10432 . Forenames possibly taken from the family's death notice:
   Dec-10-18 Stockfish (Computer) (replies)
Telemus: Stockfish is quite strong, but it seems to be difficult to analyse with it. See what I mean. SF 10 evaluates the starting position at depths 25-30 as favouring White: at least +0.57. But if I execute its favourite move (e4), then - at the same depths - the evaluation is close to ...

Telemus: Di Felice gives Reinhold Burbach, who finished with 6.5 points in the Hastings Challangers 1979/80 on places 9-13 (and Hebden with 6 points on places 14-22). Chess Results, 1978-1980, page 233.

Telemus: <TheFocus> Great! Good recovery.
   Nov-29-18 N Mannheimer vs A van Foreest, 1901
Telemus: Ingenious play by White. Could be improved by 19.♕d2.
   Nov-28-18 Lokvenc vs O Trinks, 1925 (replies)
Telemus: <Prelate> Seems to be a technical issue. If you use "view" (after "PGN:") you'll see the remaining moves and the comments. <keypusher> The two longer comments are similar to two German comments in the tournament book. But there the game has a lot more comments and DSZ, ...
   Nov-27-18 Rubinstein vs J Mieses, 1922 (replies)
Telemus: <sea7kenp> Of course, the tb uses algebraic notation. I don't remember a single German book published after the first edition of the "Handbuch" using descriptive notation.
   Nov-27-18 S Levitsky vs Alekhine, 1913
Telemus: A pawn ending that has some kind of main line (including many forced moves): [DIAGRAM] 42.♔f3 ♔f5 43.a5 (43.h4? a5) 43.. c6 (43.. g5 44.d5 h5 45.d6 cxd6 46.cxd6 ♔e6 47.♔e4 =) 44.h4 h6 45.♔e3 g5 46.h5 g4 (46.. ♔e6 47.♔e4 g4 48.♔f4 =) ...
