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."


"Of course the Fried Liver is unsound. Everybody knows that, especially once they get home and fire up Fritzy and his Friends. Alas, before the post mortem the gods have placed the game."

--Phony Benoni (commenting on a Shirov game)

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

   Feb-16-18 G Neumann vs Mayet, 1865
keypusher: If 12....Nxf3+ White can of course play 13.gxf3, but 13.Qxf3 Rxg8 14.e5 Rb8 15.exd6 cxd6 16.Rad1 is also crushing.
   Feb-16-18 Winawer vs G Neumann, 1870
keypusher: Nice game. 25.Kxf2 Qxh2+ 26.Ke3 (26.Kf1 Rxg3) 26....Nf5+ 27.Ke3 (27.Kf4 Qxg3+ 28.Kxf5 Qg5#) 27....Qxg3+ 28.Ke2 Qe3+ 29.Kf1 Rg1#.

keypusher: <Knight13: 35. Bxe5 fxe5 36. Qxe5 then what? 36...a1=Q 37. Qxe6+ Kh8 38. Rxa1 Rxd6 39. Rxd6 Rxd6 and black gets a better endgame than White. But there's a much better move: 36...Bb3 attacking the rook on d1.> Also the simple 36....Rxd6 wins a piece.
   Feb-16-18 Menchik vs Capablanca, 1929
keypusher: <11.Qf4 Bd6 12.Nxe4 was interesting.> Shredder thinks White would have been slightly better after <Honza>'s move, e.g. 11.Qf4 Bd6 12.Nxe4 Bxe4 13.Bxe4 Nxc4 14.Qf5 Rc8 15.Bd3 and +0.47 after four minutes (36/49).

Sep-10-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: Glad you enjoyed listening to Revolver again, KP. I'm listening to it now and in my opinion it's the greatest album in musical history, it's better than Peppers anyways..

Here's John Lennon having a fanboy moment when he gets to play <instruments> with your great Chuck Berry...

I believe <TD> lives in Bayamon and some parts of that city are still without electricity and water.

It will take months before some semblance of normalcy returns to Puerto Rico.

Test Sunday...

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <keypusher> Here's my 'test', (got busy Sunday, and forgot to ask...)

<but the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that court never should have heard Elliott's case. Polk Failla heard the case in the Southern District last week and denied the request.>

Do you know, how, or the process of a case being assigned to a court, or another way of asking, how could a court that shouldn't have heard the case to begin with, got the case?

Thanks in advance.

Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: <tga> thanks, appreciated. i explained why I asked on rogoff
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: <WannaBe> Sorry, I never answered your question. The honest answer is, I don't know the ins and outs of this particular case, and ESPN doesn't link to any of the relevant court decisions.

What I'm guessing is that the collective bargaining agreement between the NFLPA and the league provides that appeals from league suspensions are going to be heard only in the federal courts for the Southern District of New York -- in other words, in Manhattan, where the NFL offices are. As you remember, the litigation over Tom Brady's suspension also took place in NYC.

Normally, a plaintiff can bring a case wherever he wants, provided that the place where the case is brought has some connection to whatever gave rise to the lawsuit and it's fair and not too burdensome to make the defendant litigate there. I'm sure Mr. Elliott or his attorney had some argument for why Texas was a fine place to litigate the suspension, and the trial court agreed with Mr. Elliott. But the NFL appealed to the 5th Circuit (the appellate court that oversees federal courts in Texas and neighboring states) which agreed that the case had to go to New York. The federal trial judge there upheld the suspension, and the Second Circuit (the federal appeals court that oversees the district courts in New York, Vermont, and Connecticut) agreed with her.
