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.

   Jun-21-18 Lochner (replies)
sneaky pete: Deppe (edition 1979) gives several of his games, without an initial but with an Umlaut on the o: Löchner. So Lochner is probably this player: Friedrich Loechner The German wiki link on his player page is interesting, but you have to understand German.
   Jun-20-18 A Lenz vs H Karsten, 1911
sneaky pete: <Stonehenge> You guessed wrong. Deutsche Schachzeitung, April 1913, has another game by this A. Lenz from the same Correspondence Gambit Tournament San Remo 1911-12.
   Jun-20-18 Schlechter vs A Kaufmann, 1913
sneaky pete: I think after 21... Bd4 22.exd5 .. was intended [DIAGRAM] when the black King would wish he was somewhere else. If next 22... cxd5 even the frivolous 23.Ne4 .. may be playable.
   Jun-15-18 Richard Reti (replies)
sneaky pete: That Spanish booklet (Ricardo Alvarez Cela y Luis Eceizabarrena Gaba, Estocolmo 1919 y Rubinstein-Bogoljubow, 1920, published by Ricardo Aguilera, Madrid, 1973, as part of the Serie Rubinstein of the Torneos Retrospectivos) has no dates or anything else worth menrioning, only ...
   Jun-11-18 Steinitz vs B Vergani, 1895 (replies)
sneaky pete: That "still smiling" may be a weird offspring of the main characteristic of the Englishman: hypocrisy. The rude Dutchman Norman van Lennep wrote (in Tijdschrift, 1895): "Apart from that it's impossible not to pity the man. Not only, that he only speaks Italian, so he can not ...
   Jun-09-18 L Asztalos vs S Herland, 1912 (replies)
sneaky pete: This game clearly wasn't played on a Monday, else Asztalos would have known what to do after 30... Ne7 [DIAGRAM]
   Jun-08-18 AVRO (1938) (replies)
sneaky pete: <CHC> No, the goose is of the Florida Two Month variety. It feeds on alligators, Life Masters and bananas. The link is to a radio program. Radio is something like video, but without moving pictures. Some of what you hear comes from recordings (on glass 78 rpm records) of ...
   Jun-05-18 Schlechter vs Alapin, 1897
sneaky pete: <YoungEd> After 20.Qxf5 Nxf1 [DIAGRAM] 21.Rxf1 Qxa2 or 21.Kxf1 Qc4+ white ends up a pawn down.
   Jun-04-18 Dury vs Jensen, 1975 (replies)
sneaky pete: No sex and drugs here, but after move 12 [DIAGRAM] and move 15 [DIAGRAM] it sure is rock 'n roll. The game is from a team maych between France and Denmark.
   Jun-04-18 J Sulc vs F Grzeskowiak, 1966
sneaky pete: Even better would have been 8... Bxh4+ 9.Kd2 Qg5 [DIAGRAM] and white is lost (Adrian Mikhalchishin in New In Chess, 1989 issue 8). After 8... dxe5 9.Qxh5 O-O white played 10.g3 .. [DIAGRAM] in Berthelot vs Mikhalchishin, Capelle la Grande 1988.
