**CURRENT DRAFT UNDER INSPECTION FOR PROMOTION: Game Collection: WCC: Botvinnik-Bronstein 1951



<Greetings colleagues!>

Daniel Freeman has given us his blessing to edit the History of the World Chess Championship.

Our task is twofold: to fact check each introduction and source the information to reliable books, journals, or newspapers. At present, many of the intros are either imprecisely sourced, or sourced to dubious websites.

Second, we should edit the intros so that any new material we discover should be added to the existing text, which is often skimpy and usually contains a good number of factual errors.

<Here is our <<<watchword>>>: all facts in the intros must be sourced to reliable primary material>



<1. How did the Match come about?

2. What were the conditions for the Match? The stakes, the number of games, the rules, and this could also include information about the backers, the venue, the referees, and so on.

3. What happened at the Match?>

Wiener Schachzeitung:

It was brought back to life after WWI in 1923 under the name <Neue Wiener Schach-Zeitung> but the old name was reinstated already in 1924, when it was called <Wiener Schach-Zeitung>. So <Neue Wiener Schach-Zeitung> only if the 1923 issues are quoted.

<SITE FIELD> Country Code guidelines, courtesy of User: Paint My Dragon:

The normally accepted convention is, I believe, to refer to the URS (The Soviet Union) from 22 Dec 1922 until 26 Dec 1991, when the Union collapsed, and thereafter, to use RUS (Russia), or one of the other Baltic states that formerly comprised the Union. Unfortunately, the attribution of three-letter country codes to the Balkan states over a range of dates spanning the nineties and noughties, is a much more complicated process, and more than I could begin to explain on these pages, so pray hard that you don't have to report on any matches from what used to constitute Yugoslavia!

  Diademas: Makes me think of the referendum we had in Norway in 1905, weather to stay in union with Sweden or not, and the retoric said that the Swedes ate their own children.

The result was a convincing 99.95% against the union. Results only North Korea and Russia can compete with nowadays...

Premium Chessgames Member
  Shams: <Diademas> That's hilarious. So you're saying that's not true about the Swedes?
Premium Chessgames Member
  crawfb5: Sounds like a modest proposal to me.

  Diademas: <Shams>.
Maybe not their favorit past time, but you never know with those pesky Swedes...

  OhioChessFan: Per the Canadian news report, and the appeal to Sister Julie, I am reminded of my Catholic grade school days, and Sister Julia. She arrived to teach second grade the year I started third, so I never had the pleasure of her pronouncements. Her students repeated the mantra "Sister Julia says......" constantly. They were usually outrageous stories meant to scare the children out of their minds in case they took notice of the opposite sex. One typical example would be "Sister Julia says two fifth graders were kissing. The next day, the girl woke up with the sign of the cross burned into her skin."

  OhioChessFan: <Diadeamas> how do you feel about .05% of your populace being in favor of eating children?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Diademas: Good question <OCF>. I think they may have refrased it on the ballot...

  Karpova: <Jess>

Is there a difference between a <match> and a <set match>?

Premium Chessgames Member
  jessicafischerqueen: <Karpova>

I don't know, to be honest.

If forced to guess, I'd say a "set match" had a limited number of games?

Remember some of the historical matches had no limit to the number of games.

I bet that <crawfb5> knows the definite answer to your question though.

How well you know me...

Even with your fine clue, I had to look 3 or 4 times until I noticed the Vancouver newspaper listing in that horrifying story you posted.

Good Heavens...

"Baby Metal"

LOL! Brilliant, thank you!

Thanks! The question arose here A van Foreest vs Olland, 1913 and I've also come across it some times, one example is <In a set match, Morphy would beat anybody alive today.> by Fischer -

Perhaps there is a difference to "match", but this could also have been lost.

I find it hilarious that Fischer went on and on about Morphy not having a stamp to commemorate him!

Reminds me of the Alan character played by Zack Galafianakis in The Hangover movies - completely obsessed by some off-the-wall item.

One thing you have to admit about Bobby- he loved chess, and great chess players.

That's something you can never take away from him or his legacy.

  Travis Bickle: Nice Forum Title & thanks for the compliments M'Lady of Fischerdom! ; P

I think I learned quite a bit from you about chess players, chess history, all things Genesis & lately all things Floyd!

P.S. But most of all I learned to laugh a lot more because of your unique & divine sense of humor!! ; P

  Travis Bickle: Twilight Alehouse - Genesis

  jessicafischerqueen: <Travis>

Thanks for that excellent BELGIAN TV live performance of "Twilight Alehouse."

This track is of special interest to me because it's one of the few lyrics that <Gabriel> wrote directly about a contemporary social issue- alcoholism, in this case.

The only other social issue he ever wrote directly about for <Genesis> was "Get 'em out by Friday," which is about evil Landlords kicking deadbeat tenants into the street. And then using scientists to create "half sized people" so the landlords could cram more of them in the same building.

Here is <Get 'em out by Friday> (good):

  playground player: <jessicafischerqueen> Dear Jess, I want to give you a special heads-up: I have just started writing my next book, <The Temple>, Book No. 8 in my Bell Mountain series.

It's good to be back in Obann!

<Mrs. PGP> pointed out yesterday that <The Palace> is my 10th published novel. I wonder how many better writers than I weren't able to get 10 books into print. Of course, this is counting my four horror novels in the 1980s, the sort of thing I don't write anymore.

Well, I can hardly wait to see what unexpected twists and turns the story will take, this time. This is the work I love best, and it's good to be getting back to it.

  Alien Math: Eye-tracking software helps piano students learn

Besides accuracy and tempo, Smith listens for pausing, regression (playing a wrong note, and playing it again), fixation, length of fixation and ability to read ahead.

The eye-tracking software reports exactly where the student's eyes spend time. Advanced players tend to move forward linearly with clean up and down movements.

Novice players? Their eyes are all over the place, including going back to mistakes, glancing off the page, lingering on troublesome notes.

~~~~new notes concern google emails
Gmail does scan all emails, new Google terms clarify

“This is not the worst thing Google does,” said Jim Killock, executive director of the Open Rights Group. “But like anything like this, if people are concerned about it they should be able to completely switch it off if they want to.”

Such scanning and indexing of emails, which cannot be fully turned off, could be in violation of a US law called Ferpa, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, which is the main law guarding student educational records and the law being used as the basis for a lawsuit filed against Google in California.

“It is the amount of information they hold on individuals that should be concerning us, both because that is attractive to government but also sometimes that information leaks out in various ways like the NSA’s use of cookies in general as a means to target users,” Killock explained. ~
