The Perseus Project: The classics in Greek, Latin & English--hyperlinked

A page from the Venetus A, the oldest complete manuscript of the Iliad, courtesy of Harvard's Multitext Library:

From Google Books, a link to Tarrasch's book on the 1908 world championship. I've translated his notes on the game pages.

Lasker's book on St. Petersburg 1909

Tarrasch's <Dreihundert Schachpartien>, which covers his career from the beginning through his match with Chigorin in 1893

Chess-play is a good and witty exercise of the mind for some kind of men, and fit for such melancholy, Rhasis holds, as are idle, and have extravagant impertinent thoughts, or troubled with cares, nothing better to distract their mind, and alter their meditations; invented (some say) by the general of an army in famine, to keep soldiers from mutiny: but if it proceed from overmuch study, in such case it may do more harm than good; it is a game too troublesome for some men's brains, too full of anxiety, all out as bad as study; besides it is a testy choleric game, and very offensive to him that loseth the mate. William the Conquerer, in his younger years, playing at chess with the Prince of France (Dauphine was not annexed to that crown in those days) losing a mate, knocked the chess-board about his pate, which was a cause afterwards of much enmity between them.

--Burton, The Anatomy of Melancholy

"Just because many great chess players were obnoxious jerks, doesn't mean that if you're an obnoxious jerk you're a great chess player."


"You are also a machine, as are Anand, Carlsen, Kasparov, and Fischer. You and the others are just inferior machines. Your idea of beautiful chess is simply faulty chess that is not caught in its faults."


"Alas, before the post mortem the gods have placed the game."

--Phony Benoni

"A chess engine is a great antidote to human optimism."

keypusher: < WorstPlayerEver: <keypusher> Thanks for the link! However, Tarrasch did not play officially against Lasker in 1894.> Yes, I agree. What I'm saying is that it wasn't any kind of game, it was just a posed shot.
   Apr-22-18 9th DSB Kongress, Leipzig (1894)
keypusher: I think this link has the picture <zanzibar> referred to in the first post on the page -- the link he posted is no longer good.
   Apr-20-18 Marshall vs Duras, 1913
keypusher: <MissScarlett: Another dig in the ribs - not to say a punch in the guts - for <John Nunn>.> Only if this game had been played in Carlsbad 1911. Are you saying all those mistakes he found were really just flaws in the game scores?

keypusher: <Orwell distinguishes nationalism and patriotism, greatly to the disadvantage of the latter.> I meant "former," obviously.

keypusher: <wannabe> Enormous gap in experience -- Young was 30 when he finally got the starting job. Garoppolo threw fewer than 100 passes as a Patriot.

keypusher: <sneaky pete> Foregoing an engine, this old-fashioned patzer would play 17....Be4 and I think the king will survive.
   Apr-17-18 Duras vs Marshall, 1912
keypusher: A little quicker was 62.Rb8 Rf6+ 63.Rb6! and the pawn queens.
   Apr-16-18 Kasparov vs Karpov, 1987
keypusher: <Howard> Pretty sure it would have given Petrosian some really bad flashbacks. Petrosian vs Bronstein, 1956 <offramp> How about retaking with the piece in this game? Gligoric vs Fischer, 1961
   Apr-10-18 Zukertort vs Count Epoureano, 1872 (replies)
keypusher: <Petrosianic: Al Horowitz describes this as "the finest odds game ever played." Anyone have any better candidates?> I don't. It's funny, though, Zukertort missed 12.Rg1, which as Random Visitor pointed out wins at once (12....Ne8 13.Qxg7+) and the Count missed a couple of ...

I noticed that yesterday.

Did you notice how he spelled Magnus?


Did Tolengoof hijack his account?

And yeah, I was banned from that page. Haha..


Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: I noticed it Wednesday and posted on Odd Lie. I was wondering when other people would take note. I suspect <rogge> is about to get banned. And I'll put 10-1 odds it's Lotis Key ghostwriting.

Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: <madlydeeply> Kasparov is a millionaire who's held on to his money...Karpov is a billionnaire according to some, despite having a face like a pencil sharpener and a body like Stephen Hawking. I don't think you can infer PR from wealth.
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: <madly deeply> I enjoy your posts, by the way. Didn't you clobber me on gameknot a few years ago?
Mar-31-18  madlydeeply: maybe we played on gameknot. I just play hundreds of lichess games nowadays. so easy. i guess they are all millionares. Kaspy was good at making money, of course. I'm still upset that he didn't play shirov! maybe i should let that go....

Well, maybe you clobbered me on some other site. Nothing wrong with being mad about Kasparov stiffing Shirov...

<chancho> Thanks, I look forward to watching.

Apr-04-18  madlydeeply: That could have been Shirov's buster douglas moment! anyway Kasparov was exposed at that st louis quad a few years ago... he did ok on the first day... with his meticulously prepared openings.. but then Naka, So and Fab did exactly one night of computer homework and busted them all. Kasparov owns the 80s-90s just like Fischer owns 1972
