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.

http://books.google.com/books?id=0C...

Lasker's book on St. Petersburg 1909

http://www.google.com/books?id=o3eC...

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

https://books.google.com/books?id=9...

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."

--AgentRgent

"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."

--vsaluki

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)

keypusher: Part IV 17.c4-c5! <Naturally White utilizes the chance to open up new lines with gain of tempo. Black now falls under a mating attack.> Interestingly, Shredder prefers 17.f4 Qc5 18.Qxc5 19.dxc5 and now either 20.Bxf6 gxf6 21.Nh5 f5 22.Nf6+ or 20.e5 Ne8 21.f5 Bd7 22.Bg4 ...

keypusher: <saffuna: What about late 20th century Chile?> Not indefinitely, right? In a case I'm working on, the company had subsidiaries focused on the developing and developed world. I noticed the company classed Chile in the latter category. Not so common for a country to change ...

keypusher: < diceman: I even had “My 60 Memorable Games” as a beginner. While a beginner wont readily understand Fischer's level of play, his verbiage is simple/descriptive and doesn't lose you.> Someone once wrote that would be the one chess book he'd take to a desert island, for ...

keypusher: <offramp> Interesting point. Impressive performances by England, in any case. Sometimes it seems like the "Fischer boom" went off in the UK rather than in the USA.

keypusher: This must have been a blast to watch: Dallas 5, Detroit 0 in a 1970 divisional playoff. Landry and Munson combined to go 7-20 for the Lions; Morton racked up four completions in 18 tries for the Cowboys. http://www.pro-football-reference.c... Morton, incidentally, had a career ...

keypusher: <Sally> Shame that I wrote such drivel on this page of all pages. But people love this game and love writing about it, so hopefully my posts will be covered over before too long.

keypusher: <Helios727: <keypusher> and <Nerwal> After 31. Qxb6 Bxc4 32. Rb2 Bxf1 33.Rxf1 Rxg3, does not 34. Bg2 hold? For instance 34... Ng4+ 35. hxg4 hxg4+ 36. Kg1> 34.Bg2 Qg7 35.Rff2 Nh4 and I don't see a defense.

keypusher: <OCF> The simul giver shouldn't be too upset. That Player A didn't know when to quit is a predictable corollary of being so bad that he was lost after two moves.

Kibitzer's Corner
< Earlier Kibitzing  · PAGE 28 OF 28 ·  Later Kibitzing>
May-17-16  Shams: Well I see it so rarely that I can never remember my analysis. As much blitz as I play I still see it only a couple times a year so I end up playing into Black's hands. But John Watson recommends the very simple and seemingly compliant line <4.Qc2 Qa5+ 5.Nc3 Nxc3 6.Bd2 e5 7.Bxc3 Qc7 8.f4 d6 9.Nf3> and now both of Black natural replies, 9.Nd7 and 9...exf4 (the latter given by Vulture guru Stefan Bücker) are met by 10.e3 with promising play for White even if he is gambiting a pawn. I was wondering if you had an opinion on this variation, or any experience in it.

  keypusher: <shams> Yes, I hated that line. It's one of the reasons I stopped playing the Vulture. It's so hard to deal with that bishop on c3.

http://gameknot.com/analyze-board.p...

I didn't play well in that game by any means, but I never felt anywhere close to equal.

Here's a game by the man himself.

http://gameknot.com/analyze-board.p...

May-18-16  Shams: Ok, I'm calling that a seal of approval. If you ever want to share a line that gave you trouble against the Czech Benoni, I'm all ears. I find that a tougher nut to crack than I feel it should be. Thanks.
May-18-16  Shams: For your troubles.

<The gist of an old joke—it has a dozen local iterations—is that the Loeb Classical Library translations are so baffling that you have to consult the original Greek or Latin on the left-hand page to decipher the English translation on the right.

Funny or not, the wisecrack catches the condescension long directed at the Loebs, that venerable series of Greek and Latin classics in uniform volumes with facing English translations. Professors of classics in particular used to frown upon them. Until recently, merely to be seen on campus with a Loeb was to court scandal. There were gradations of disgrace. Those Loeb editions of Boethius, Bede, and Augustine I saw on the shelves of the professor who taught me Anglo-Saxon: those were permissible for an English scholar. But I, as a classics major, was to eschew the very same volumes. Even as an undergraduate, though I prized my Loeb edition of The Republic, edited and imaginatively annotated by Paul Shorey, I knew better than bring it to my seminar on Plato. That same tact—that same hypocrisy—accounts for the care I took, as a graduate student, to avoid detection as I sifted the used bookshops of Cambridge for second-hand Loebs. For many of us, the pleasure we took in the Loebs was tinged with guilt.

But attitudes are changing. Once treated as evidence of the decline of Western civilization, the Loeb Classical Library is now, in its centennial year, more often regarded as, if not quite a pillar of our culture, at least one of its more enduring and useful props. The centenary invites consideration of how the Loebs have both reflected and, increasingly, shaped our literary culture.>

  keypusher: keypusher: Thanks, Shams. When I got the Iliad and Odyssey I bought the Oxford editions, because I didn't want the English on the facing page (and I liked the pale blue dust jackets). Overambitious, and they've completely fallen apart too. Maybe I'll get the Loebs.

  Chessical: <Keypusher> I would like to have the Chigorin - Gunsberg Match (1890) included in the Tournament Index. I note, however, that you have already assembled the games so you have precedence.

Is this currently an on-going project for you? If it is not may I write it up for submission? If you wish, it could be a joint enterprise.

Regards, Chessical.

Thank you for agreeing to allow me to clone your collection.

I'll give you a name I like-- Tibor Fischer. Either "The Collector Collector" or "The Thought Gang" are a lot of fun. The guy can really write but there's not a trace anywhere in those books of a writer desperate for literary immortality. English novelists tend to be much better about that anyway. Another, maybe even better example is Magnus Mills' dark comic novella "The Restraint of Beasts". What a trifle, but a miracle of sly suggestion. Any one of those three books I'd recommend to you, with a slight lean towards Collector Collector because of your interest in history.
