  luftforlife: <whiteshark>: Thanks for your explanation today of "TN." That was new to me, the term-of-art "technical novelty," and I'm happy for the edification.

What's more, I really appreciate your being kind and friendly, and not making me feel ill-at-ease for asking the question -- especially amidst the kibitzing during a live match. There is so much to learn, and I'll never learn it all, but learning is a major reason I'm here, along with socializing, and so to do both at once with someone so helpful and good-natured as you makes me feel welcome here, and a part of the proceedings, and that makes it all worthwhile.

Thanks again, and hope to see you around soon! Take care.

Best, ~ lefty

  perfidious: <crawfb5: I thought (the photograph) looked a bit like the older Bogoljubov, but I don't know if Tal ever played him.>

One would imagine such an encounter could never have taken place, quite apart from Bogo's death when Tal was a mere fifteen years old, given Bogo's status as a non-person in Soviet Union back then; do not know whether he was ever 'rehabilitated' by the powers that were.

  whiteshark: Hi <perfidious>, thanks for stopping by. Where's <crafb5's> quote from? Guess he has been kidding there. You're absolutely right on Bogo-Tal.

<do not know whether he was ever 'rehabilitated' by the powers that were.> Me neither. But the last words of the following quote might indicate such 'rehab':

"Returning to the political realm, it was after his victory in Moscow 1925 that the Soviet chess overlords came into being and began to distribute their favours. Although Bogoljubow was still internationally active, these bureaucrats restricted his access to a couple of tournaments and, mainly because of his loss of income and rising debts, he renounced his Russian/Soviet citizenship in 1926. From that point onward he was condemned by the Soviet State and became a 'non-person', with his name was erased from all records, including tournaments, <for many decades>."

  whiteshark: I've classified 400 games of this Game Collection: 94_-> Middlegames with opposite-coloured Bi~ as/regarding to

a) the ♔'s position [0-0, 0-0-0, center or elsewhere]

and

b) which coloured ♗ each side had [w/b, b/w].

Result:

In <168> games white had a white ♗ and both sides had castled short and in <119> games white had the darksquared ♗, again with 0-0 on each side. Together that's <287> or < 71,7% <!>> of the games.

Furthermore, in <57> games the other six possible castling distributions had been reached and in the remaining <56> games one or both sides didn't castle.
