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."

keypusher: <LA MAN: Why not nxn. On 20th. By white? So what if white fights hard with and open game? Did I miss something?> 20.Nxd4 Qxg3+ 21.Ke2 Qg2+ is draw by perpetual check and 22.Kd2 Qxf4+ 23.Kc3 Bxd3 is worse than a draw for White.

keypusher: <brankat >. I underrated him. In Tartakower and DuMont's 500 Master Games of Chess, he pretty much showed up only as a loser. I was surprised to learn later that he had a plus score against Nimzowitsch, for example. < Retireborn: <Gregor> Yes, it's nice, but one ...

keypusher: <ughaibu> I've never read Beim's book on Morphy, which I understand is very good. But I genuinely enjoyed Shibut's book. It's kind of a grab bag (chapter titles include "Thomas Barnes" "Odds" "Blunders and Omissions" "Selected Morphy Endgames") but any modern master who ...

keypusher: < thegoldenband: <keypusher: Kasparov's ...d5 gambit wasn't a surprise, since it was the second time he'd played it in the match.> This is something like a Zen koan -- or a Yogi Berra one-liner, e.g. "Nobody goes to that restaurant anymore, it's too crowded."> No, ...
   Nov-04-17 Anderssen vs Morphy, 1858

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.
