You have nothing to fear but my library.

"Ein Mensch, was ka Schach spielt, ist ka Mensch. Im Schach sitzt die Intelligenz, sag' ich. Da kann einer vier Meter lang sein, Schach muß er spielen, sonst ist er ein Tepp. Ich kann Schach. Ich bin auch kein Tepp. Jetzt frag' ich Sie; wenn Sie wollen, antworten Sie mir. Wenn Sie nicht wollen, antworten Sie nicht. Wozu hat ein Mensch den Kopf? Ich sag's Ihnen selbst, sonst zerbrechen S' Ihnen noch den Kopf, es wär' schad' drum. Zum Schach hat er den Kopf. Verstehen Sie mich? Sagen Sie ja, dann ist alles gut. Sagen Sie nein, dann sag' ich's Ihnen nochmal, weil Sie's sind."

Weltmeister Dr. Siegfried Fischer(le)
from Elias Canetti, Die Blendung, 1935

It's better to have D Love and lost than never to have D Love at all.

Rudy Kousbroek: Larkensviedje

Die ochtend zei het wrattenzwijn:
Nu moet het afgezopen lijn,
Stijnen helpt geen kweek.

Ja, drerk in plaats van woefenis:
Leven en schrijzen, room voos bis,
De wagen van de deek:

Waandag, Minsdag,
Zoensdag, Wonderdag,
Dijdag, Waterdag, Vrondag.

Zes dagen bijver zijn als nijen,
Op Vrondag vredig liggen zijen,
Dat maakt een woede geek.

Philosophy for beginners:
I do not think about things I don't think about.

   Oct-10-19 M Nimtz vs M Skorpik, 1984
sneaky pete: Martin Skorpik was born October 12, 1978, if we can believe the biographical information here. I don't believe he played a top level correspondence game in 1984. My guess is that black in this game is Vlastimil Skorpik.
   Oct-07-19 E Schiller vs Busch, 1970
sneaky pete: <sea7kemp> The Google translation is more or less accurate, but a bit unimaginative. I would prefer something like Suddenly, like Mack the Knife, Auntie shows up at d5.
   Sep-23-19 G W Medley vs Morphy, 1858 (replies)
sneaky pete: Who invented this game?
   Sep-19-19 Spielmann vs K Treybal, 1926
sneaky pete: If 23... Nxe5 24.Nd4 .. [DIAGRAM] regains the Knight.
   Sep-14-19 A Meek vs Morphy, 1857 (replies)
sneaky pete: After 27... Qxb1 28.Nxe6 Qh7 29.Nxf8 Bxf8 [DIAGRAM] black has won <only> a Knight. The game continuation wins a Knight and 1 or 2 pawns, leaving the black pieces better placed. The Meek shall inherit nothing, Morphy must have thought.
   Sep-05-19 Weenink vs S Landau, 1930
sneaky pete: After 16... Nd7 [DIAGRAM] the game might have lasted much longer.
   Sep-05-19 J W Hurlston vs A Lenz, 1912
sneaky pete: The right move is 20.Bxg7 .. [DIAGRAM]
   Sep-03-19 J Krejcik vs Breyer, 1921
sneaky pete: Maróczy: even more energetic would have been 14... f5 [DIAGRAM] e.g. 15.Qxf5+ Qd7 16.Qxe4 Qxd2+ 17.Kf1 Bc5 [DIAGRAM]
   Sep-03-19 Euwe vs J Krejcik, 1921
sneaky pete: That Knight should never have gone to c3 in the first place. Maróczy recommends 21.Nc1 .. [DIAGRAM] with possibly 21... Ba3 22.Kb1 Bxc1 23.Kxc1 Qxa2 24.Kd1 .. next. Maróczy also calls 16... Nc3+ übereilt (premature) and claims that the quiet 16... Rfb8 is winning.
   Sep-02-19 Frantisek Schubert
sneaky pete: Czechoslovakian Championship, Prague, August 1919: 1. Subrt 6.5 2. Opocensky 6 3. Hasek 5.5 4. Prokes 5 5. Gargulįk 4.5 6. Arnold 2.5 From page 127 of Kagan's Neueste Schachnachrichten, volume 1921 number 2. The curious spelling of the name Schubert is courtesy of ...
