  tpstar: <whiteshark> Thank you kindly. I didn't want to guess.

An interesting piece by <Nightsurfer>/Rene in ChessBase:

https://de.chessbase.com/post/das-s...

  tpstar: <whiteshark> 1) Please evaluate this middle portion for accuracy in meaning via Google Translate:

<Dr. R.Gralla / CB : Ein Makel, der den Zeitgenossen - samt vielen, die von ihnen abgekupfert haben - nicht gepasst hat.

S.Maass: Die Grundidee von Legall ist frappierend: Der schwarze Monarch wird von zwei Reitern und einem Läufer in der Mitte des Brettes zur Strecke gebracht, obwohl Weiß die Dame eingebüßt hat. Um so ärgerlicher ist, dass die Kombination nicht zwingend ist, sondern ein fatales Loch aufweist, weil sich der übertölpelte Saint Brie ganz einfach nicht auf den Tanz hätte einlassen müssen. Daher haben die Kommentatoren vermutlich relativ schnell und wahrscheinlich noch zu Lebzeiten von Legall das Geschehen geschönt: Sie haben die real gespielte und quasi "illegale", weil fehlerhafte Zugfolge des Legall de Kermeur im Nachhinein sozusagen "legal" gemacht. Der Trick: Sie haben relativ sinnfreie Bauernzüge erfunden und die Partie entsprechend umgedichtet.

Dr. R.Gralla / CB: Und der wahre Verantwortliche, Maître Legall de Kermeur, hat das stillschweigend gebilligt?!

S.Maass: Von ihm ist nicht überliefert, dass er sich gegen die Legendenbildung post festum verwahrt hätte.

Dr. R.Gralla / CB: Mit der Folge, dass die manipulierte Partienotation bis in die Gegenwart als authentisch gilt, in Lehrbüchern und Datenbanken ...

S.Maass: ... und die Fälschung wird zur Wahrheit.>

*****

Dr. R.Gralla / CB: A flaw that did not fit the contemporaries - along with many who copied them.

S.Maass: The basic idea of ​​Legall is striking: The black monarch is brought down by two riders and a runner in the middle of the board, although White has lost the lady. The more annoying is that the combination is not mandatory, but has a fatal hole, because the duped Saint Brie simply did not have to get involved in the dance. Therefore, the commentators have probably relatively quickly and probably even in the lifetime of Legall geschappen the action: They have the real -played and quasi "illegal" because erroneous train sequence of Legall de Kermeur in hindsight, so to speak, "legal" made. The trick: They have invented relatively meaningless pawn moves and rewritten the game accordingly.

Dr. R.Gralla / CB: And the true person in charge, Maître Legall de Kermeur, tacitly approved that ?!

S.Maass: From him is not known that he had kept firmly against the legend building post festum.

Dr. R.Gralla / CB: With the consequence that the manipulated Lotenotation to the present is considered authentic, in textbooks and databases ...

S.Maass: ... and the forgery becomes the truth.

*****

2) There are a few references to Guttenberg and plagiarism:

<Dr. René Gralla / CHESSBASE: Sie haben jetzt den Anti-Guttenberg im Schach gegeben, indem Sie das Finale einer viel zitierten Begegnung aus dem vorrevolutionären Frankreich unter die Lupe genommen haben.

Stephan Maass: Wobei damals, als die ominöse Stellung auf das Brett gestellt worden ist, natürlich noch niemand den späteren Herrn Guttenberg und seine Causa vorausahnen konnte.>

*****

Dr. René Gralla / CHESSBASE: You have now set the anti-Guttenberg in check by examining the finale of a much-quoted encounter from pre-revolutionary France.

Stephan Maass: Where, of course, when the ominous position was placed on the board, nobody could anticipate the future Mr. Guttenberg and his Causa.

*****

Is this a uniquely cultural phenomenon, where Germans are particularly offended by Guttenberg? Or was this just a timely political reference? Thanks for any explanation.

  whiteshark: <tpstar> I took me a few quarters on the clock to cross-check the text. If you omit his more figurative and partly interlaced language it was actually just a grading of linguistic nuances.

I have highlighted the changes in my translation with <>. Here we go:

Dr. R.Gralla / CB: A flaw that did not fit the contemporaries - along with many who copied them.

S.Maass: The basic idea of Legall is striking: The black <King> is brought down by two <knights> and a <bishop> in the middle of the board, although White has lost the <queen>. The more annoying is that the combination is not <forced>, but has a fatal [in the sense of <awkward/embarrassing>] hole, because the duped Saint Brie simply did not have to get involved <in such a position>.

Therefore, the commentators have probably relatively quickly and <presumably> even in the lifetime of Legall <beautified> the action:

<Afterwards> they have made the real played <and therefore> quasi "illegal" move <sequence/order> of Legall de Kermeur "legal", so to speak. The trick: They have invented relatively meaningless pawn moves and <have> rewritten the game accordingly.

Dr. R.Gralla / CB: And the true person in charge, Maître Legall de Kermeur, tacitly approved that ?!

S.Maass: <It is not known about him> that he had <protested> against the legend building < afterwards>.

Dr. R.Gralla / CB: With the consequence that to the present the manipulated <game notation> is considered authentic, in textbooks and databases ...

S.Maass: ... and the forgery becomes the (<accepted>) truth.

*****
Guttenberg part:
*****

Dr. René Gralla / CHESSBASE: You have now set the anti-Guttenberg in <chess> by examining the finale of a much-quoted encounter from pre-revolutionary France.

Stephan Maass: <Whereby>, when the ominous position was <put> on the board, of course nobody could anticipate the future Mr. Guttenberg and his causa.

*****

<Is this a uniquely cultural phenomenon, where Germans are particularly offended by Guttenberg? Or was this just a timely political reference? Thanks for any explanation.> The latter. (although I have to remark that I found the Guttenberg part in total at least in need of explanation.)

  whiteshark: <tpstar> 2L8! In addition I couldn't connect the dots (of the puzzle).

I barely try to catch a holiday present for years. Too difficult and more importantly too time-consuming.

But I really enjoy to read the solution of each puzzle afterwards. Cudos to all inventors and solvers!!

I also made a (difficult) puzzle/riddle a few months ago but was to buzzy to check the riddles of the previous years. But you may find it somewhere next year ... ;)
