   Apr-09-17 Morphy vs Duke Karl / Count Isouard, 1858 (replies)
brimarern: After playing over and memorizing this game for over 40 years, I had an epiphany. The Duke (and the Count if you want to throw him in there too) didn't play that badly. Yes, it was a 17 move beating -a beautiful 17 move beating. However, when you "examine the gears of the watch" ...

brimarern: Congratulations to Edward Lasker on his upcoming (and long overdue) induction into the U.S. Chess Hall of Fame!
   Sep-25-16 Caro-Kann, Steinitz Variation (B17)
brimarern: I can see how people like Karpov and Petrosian can play this, but this variation looks like the equivalent of waving a red cape in front of a bull. I'm still amazed at how Kasparov used this variation in the final game of his match against Deep Blue ( Deep Blue vs Kasparov, 1997 )

brimarern: Ken Smith's Famous Chess Improvement Course. A Classic!

brimarern: "Remember, watch the WHOLE board!" -Bobby Fischer from 'Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess'
   Jan-14-13 L Piasetski vs L Day, 1972 (replies)
brimarern: I wish these positions appeared more in my games!
   Aug-06-12 Fred Reinfeld (replies)
brimarern: Reinfeld's 1001 Winning Chess Sacrifices and Combinations is the standard tactics book of my generation. Other tomes have come along, but using this book will still make you tactically sharp -or as Purdy says about the book, "It will make a new man out of you."
