"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 test I do for someone else.

   Sep-18-18 Geller vs Roman Hernandez, 1969
Telemus: Thanks, <Retireborn>. 37.. ♕f3 deserves a ? regardless of the alternative 37.. g4, since a queen's exchange is obviously the wrong way. With respect to 37.. g4 it's a mutual oversight, because 37.g3 is such a horrible move.

Telemus: < Botvinnik's brother was 'killed by the Germans in the war'. [...] Does <Achieving the Aim> mention this?> Yes.
   Sep-11-18 Cherepkov vs Geller, 1961
Telemus: Another escape by Geller in this tournament! This is the position after Black's 28th (and 30th) move: [DIAGRAM] Black is paralyzed, but how to win the game? Taking the pawn on g6 was not the best idea, though a practical decision. Much butter would have been to play on the black ...
   Sep-11-18 Geller vs G Borisenko, 1961
Telemus: This database contains 4 games between these two opponents. The first three were won by Borisenko(!), and he could have won this one, too, if he'd have played 31.. ♘xc4! in the final position (32.♘xc4 ♕xb5).
   Sep-11-18 Geller vs A Khasin, 1961 (replies)
Telemus: Position after White's 43th move: [DIAGRAM] How not to win this position is answered by Khasin! Incredible.
   Sep-10-18 Geller vs Vasiukov, 1959
Telemus: 48.♔g2 is a mistake, because 48.. ♕e2+ wins. However, I assume a mistake in the game-score: White probably played 48.♔f2 as he played in his 40th, 42th, 44th and 46th move.
   Sep-10-18 Geller vs A Matanovic, 1958
Telemus: 52.. b2! -+ However, I suspect that Geller played 52.♖7xc4 instead of the move 52.♖3xc4 given above.
   Sep-10-18 Lokvenc vs Geller, 1954
Telemus: 32.♘g4! +-
   Sep-10-18 Bisguier vs Geller, 1952
Telemus: Position after Black's 40th move: [DIAGRAM] Well, there was no hurry to promote the a-pawn (which allows a perpetual). The counterintuitive 41.♔c3! is winning. (41.. c5 42.bxc5 +- or 41.. ♗e6 42.♘d3 +-)
   Sep-09-18 Suetin vs Keres, 1955
Telemus: Position after 33.. g6: [DIAGRAM] The last move was a blunder in a difficult position: 34.♖xe8 ♖xe8 35.♕b3! +-. (♕b3 was also winning at White's 33th move.) --- Position after 35.. ♖xe1: [DIAGRAM] Here White could have saved half a point: ...
