"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 (

   Jul-13-18 Steinitz vs Belaiev, 1873
Telemus: <Is Whitehead's DB very reliable? I only know of it by reputation.> Not error-free, but I take it more seriously than most other databases. It's a shame that the key is lost.
   Jul-09-18 Mackenzie vs Steinitz, 1883
Telemus: [DIAGRAM] Black is clearly better, but 17.. ♗e5? allows 18.♗xf7+ +-. 18.. ♔h8 19.♗xe8 ♖xf3 20.♘xf3! [DIAGRAM] Not too difficult to find.
   Jul-08-18 Nimzowitsch vs Rubinstein, 1929
Telemus: In his notes in the tournament book Nimzowitsch criticizes 37.f4. Afterwards he thought that this breakthrough should have been better prepared by improving the king's position (37.♔f1 with the possibility to bring the king to b1). In the final position he gave 44.♕xc6 ...

   Jul-02-18 Stosch vs Zukertort, 1869 (replies)
Telemus: The game was published in NBSz 1869, p 169. White was Dr. Stosch and the game was played in Jacoby's Conditorei in May 1869. The gamescore is inclompete in two ways. First, the move 36.. ♖e2 is missing here, and second, "und Schwarz gewinnt" indicates that the game continued.
   Jun-26-18 Marshall vs Rubinstein, 1928
Telemus: In the tournament book, page 171 Tartakower wrote: <Alles übrige ist bereits eine qualvolle Agonie der anziehenden Partei. Die späte Abendstunde hat der nun kommenden Schlußphase eine besonders melancholische Note verliehen. - Unter Ansammlung sämtlicher, indessen bereits ...
   Jun-26-18 Nimzowitsch vs Tarrasch, 1928
Telemus: Some people really think that a man like Tarrasch could have played 21.. ♖fe7?, and that Nimzowitsch did not take on c5 (as given above)! But Tarrasch played 21.. ♖c7. Tournament book, page 147 and WSZ 1928, page 267.
   Jun-26-18 Tartakower vs Nimzowitsch, 1928
Telemus: According to Tartakower in the tournament book, page 114, he played 1.c4/2.d4 (instead of 1.d4/2.d4 above).
   Jun-26-18 J Mieses vs Nimzowitsch, 1928
Telemus: Instead of the patzer's check given above (36.. ♕c4+), Nimzowitsch played the much better 36.. ♕b5. Why is N.'s move better? The Black queen needs only to control c3 in order to trap White's quuen next move, and 36.. ♕c4+ would allow 37.c3. Tournament book, page ...
   Jun-26-18 Bogoljubov vs Nimzowitsch, 1928
Telemus: Black played 17.. ♗c8 (instead of 17.. ♗a8 above). Tournament book, page 75 and Skakbladet 10/1928, page 146.
