TheFocus: <Nisjesram> <I was a little pissed. However, at the same time I was thinking "it is not that <optimal play>, <the focus> , <bobsterman3000> has no shame, decency and such- I can say such things about <thegoodanarchist> and <johnbarleycorn> , ...
   Jul-18-18 Reshevsky vs Capablanca, 1935 (replies)
TheFocus: Lasker was the greatest player of all time to me. I have been studying his career for a long time now, and am continually impressed with his play, his depth, his knowledge.

TheFocus: <Big Pawn> Welcome back. You clearly saw how <Bobster> is kicking butt on the Rogoff page. LOL! That man is a definite leader among the Elite Posters.
   Jul-17-18 Monte Carlo (1903)
TheFocus: There is a tournament book of this tournament. Kemeny provided the notes in <Chess Weekly> and copies of his magazine were incorporated to create the book. The problem was that he put the games in order of the players, such as Tarrasch's games (first place) first; then 2nd ...

TheFocus: <sea7kenp> But wouldn't you like to see an algebraic version done?
   Jul-16-18 Harry Nelson Pillsbury
TheFocus: Perhaps, while we wait, someone could put out an algebraic version of <Pillsbury's Chess Career> by Sergeant and Watts? I'd like to see that book.

TheFocus: <Bobsterman3000: <Count Wedgemore> I appreciate you noticing how much liberal butt I've been kicking in the Rogoff forum as of late. I won't specify any names, but several of the regular posters in there won't dare tussle with me at all, after seeing me embarrass ...
