Branko Katic. Born and raised in former Yugoslavia, I have been living in Vancouver, B.C., Canada, for the last 30 years. Used to play chess actively when I was a teenager, and was awarded a Candidate Master title in 1970.

I "retired" a year later, mostly due to University studies and never participated in tournaments again. Instead I got a degree in History and Social Anthropology, which didn't do me much good :-)

I had neither played chess, nor followed chess events for more than 30 years. Until, by chance, I discovered this great site: in 2005.

A fellow member, and a friend, WILSON HU User: CHESSMORON, organized a double round-robin tourney: <The MASTERS vs. the MACHINES>, February - April, 2007. It was my privilege and an honour to be on the Masters team with FIDE Master ERIC SCHILLER Eric Schiller and the USCF Master BILL WALL Bill Wall!

<A few of my favourite Chess related quotes>:

"If Acoustics was a science that informed the world about sounds, then Music was an art that revealed the beauty of that science; if Logic was a science that revealed the laws of Thought, then Chess, in the form of artistic images, was an art that illuminated the logical side of thought."

<M.M.Botvinnik> ________________________________________________- __________________________________

"It is too beautiful to spend your life upon. Many times have I managed to break with Chess, yet I have always fallen in love with it again. I was too captivated by the conflict between ideas and opinions, attack and defence, life and death."

<Emanuel Lasker> ________________________________________________- __________________________________

"The chess player who has lost his game - who will describe him? I have seen him unable to move. The public was long gone, the lights were out, and still he sat rigidly in his chair staring at the emptied board, because he had overlooked Bg2. A case of complete petrification, with bystanders whispering and tiptoeing by.

I have heard him begging for punishment in blasphemous language. He had forgotten Nh5, and in his dismay he called down annihilation upon himself. Derisively, he rejected our words of solace, demanding insults and chastisements.

Standing afar and horror-stricken, I have witnessed him swearing in orgiastic fury to rip off his genitals, because he had played Qf6 instead of Qb6."

<Jan Hein Donner> ________________________________________________- __________________________________

The one I personally subscribe to:

"Of my 57 years, I’ve applied at least 30 to forgetting most of what I've learned or read, and since I succeeded in this I have acquired a certain ease and cheer which I should never again like to be without.

If need be, I can increase my skill in chess, if need be I can do that of which I have no idea present.

I have stored little in my memory, but I can apply that little, and it is of good use in many and varied emergencies. I keep it in order, but resist every attempt to increase its dead weight."

<Dr.Emanuel Lasker>

"Aspirin can prevent pregnancy. All a woman has to do is place an aspirin between her knees and not let it go."

brankat: After this game the score was 6-4 for Spassky. He won the next game, to win the match by 7:4.
   Nov-05-18 Tal vs Spassky, 1965
brankat: By winning this game Spassky took a 5-4 lead. This was not his last win against Tal. He won two more games ( 3 in a row altogether ) to beat Tal, and win the match: 7:4.

brankat: There should be a much simpler and a more valid method of comparing the relative playing strength of players from different eras. Never mind all the possible mathematical complexities. During the 1957-1959 period S.Gligoric may have been behind Botvink, Smyslov, Tal, Petrosian, ...
