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
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.

   Mar-18-18 Dubois vs C W Vitzthum von Eckstaedt, 1857
sneaky pete: 11.Qe2 .. invites 11... Qxh4+ which is rather unpleasant. The actual move played 11.Qd3 .. covers square g3, so now after 11... Qxh4+ 12.g3 .. is possible.
   Mar-17-18 H U Gruenberg vs K U Mueller, 1974
sneaky pete: 8... g6 (after 7... h6 8.Bh4 ...) is even more out of place than 7... g6 immediately. In both cases, after 20.Qd2 .. [DIAGRAM] black would defend pawn h6, and 10 moves later he of course never played 30... R8d7?? [DIAGRAM] If you change 7... g6 to 7... b6 and 30... R8d7 to 30...

sneaky pete: There is a mistake on the Live Chess page. Time Control: "on move 40 get 50m. On move 40 get 15m and 30 s/move." I guess that last 40 should be 60.
   Mar-07-18 Alekhine vs R Mikulka, 1925
sneaky pete: Alekhine (in Kagan's Neueste Schachnachrichten, 1925 # 3) gives the move order 5.Nc3 Bg7 6.Bc4 .. and condemns 11... Ng6 as a mistake. He suggests 11... 0-0 as a better move, that would weaken the effect of "the next stereotyped countermove". Alekhine comments on the pathetic ...
   Mar-05-18 Von Gottschall vs Tarrasch, 1888 (replies)
sneaky pete: There is another bug. After 17.Nh4 .. it is impossible to analyse with Olga, possibly because that opinionated lady has declared the game a draw.

sneaky pete: H van Steenis vs T Wechsler, 1947 was published in a Russian magazine at some time and it re-appeared later as a Steinitz game from 1867 on this siite. I bet it's still a Steinitz game in most other databases.
   Mar-01-18 G Welling vs Paul Kok, 1975
sneaky pete: Strange that both players missed 27.Qf8 .. [DIAGRAM] Even a move later (after 27.b3 cxb3) 28.Qf8 .. wins a pawn without visible compensation. [DIAGRAM] The two Knights, that went so reluctantly to d2 and e2 at moves 14 and 15, prevent any black mischief from there.
   Feb-26-18 Daniel Noteboom
sneaky pete: This is the position against <Winter> given in the Noteboom memorial book, with 2 black Rooks. [DIAGRAM]
   Feb-26-18 Janowski vs W A T Schelfhout, 1913
sneaky pete: The no nonsense approach would be 15.Bxf6 Bxf6 16.Qe4 .. [DIAGRAM] 16... Bb7 17.Qxh7+ Kf8 18.Nh4 .. with an extra pawn and the attack.
   Feb-24-18 J Mieses vs Janowski, 1913
sneaky pete: Mieses wasn't lucky, he was a staunch defender after Janowski missed an easy win: 40... Txc4+ 41.Kxc4 Ke6 [DIAGRAM]
