Middle age washout; not much of a chess player, either.

Favorite player: Emmanuel Lasker, author of two of my favorite quotes (not just from chess but from anywhere). I'm quoting both from memory, so they may be a bit off.

1) "The merciless fact, culminating in checkmate, contradicts the hypocrite."

2) Re: his taking the title from Steinitz: "The thinker has been defeated by the player."

Hard not to love the guy. Had interests outside of chess, too.

TheTamale: I'm severely sleep impaired, so I thought I might struggle even with the Monday puzzle. Rather, I got it in 2 seconds... just look for the queen sac, and it solves itself.

TheTamale: Really? NN wasn't the least bit curious why a master was freely giving up a knight in the opening...???
