"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 (

   May-24-18 Breyer vs A Gottlieb, 1921
Telemus: [DIAGRAM] Breyer decided to go for the king with 29.c4!?, which put a lot of pressure on Black. Eleven moves later he sacced the second c-pawn again by 40.c4, which forced the draw. One move earlier it would have been much more promising (39.c4): [DIAGRAM] After 39.. dxc4 ...
   May-21-18 Max Eisinger Jr
Telemus: This player has deserved more attention. He has wins against GMs Sämisch, Hübner and Schmid, and against a lot of other strong players like Richter, Engels, Michel, Becker, Koch, Kieninger, Staudte etc. Some information can be found here: . ...
   May-18-18 Dufresne vs Harrwitz, 1847

   May-15-18 J F Heemskerk vs A van Rhijn, 1896
Telemus: <zanzibar: This game can't be from 1896 as it can be found in earlier publications. What source was used for it?> You ask for a source, but what are these earlier publications? (I have only two sources from 1896.)
   May-13-18 I Vistaneckis vs Flohr, 1954
Telemus: Very complex middlegame. Convincingly won.

Telemus: Is this the author of "Dictionary of Modern Chess"? Winter wrote: "[..] Horton makes Sunnocks look like Murray."
   May-12-18 Euwe vs Maroczy, 1921 (replies)
Telemus: <zanzibar> About the different editions of Euwe's book. The first three Dutch editions are from 1938, 1941 and 1947 (in my library and also in Worldcat). The first two German editions are from 1954 and 1960. (There are dated prefaces and in addition the latest inclusions are ...

Telemus: From Pachman in "Meine 100 besten Partien und meine Probleme" (Düsseldorf, 1978): Comment on 9.. f5: <? Nach ♘xc3 10.♖xc3 dc 11. ♗xc4 ♘d7 12. 0-0 e5 entsteht die Grundposition der "Orthodoxen Verteidigung". Mit dem Zug h6 wäre sie für Schwarz deutlich ...
   May-12-18 Herbert Heinicke
Telemus: A trap? [DIAGRAM] Here Heinicke played 24.♕h5. Martin Beheim-Schwarzbach assumed that this was a trap. Black played indeed 24.. ♘xe5? and after 25.dxe5 ♕xe3+ 26.♔h2 ♖d2 enjoyed his position. [DIAGRAM] 27.♖c2! The point is 27.. ♗xg2 ...
