He who wants to educate himself in Chess must evade what is dead in Chess...the habit of playing with inferior opponents; the custom of avoiding difficult tasks; the weakness of uncritically taking over variations or rules discovered by others; the vanity which is self-sufficient; the incapacity for admitting mistakes; in brief, everything that leads to standstill or to anarchy.
-- Emanuel Lasker

< I didn't know the theory, but that doesn't matter. Normally in modern chess if you have positional skills you will find the theoretical lines yourself--the theoretical moves, or maybe even better. >
|Oct-15-13|| ||whiteshark: "Es ist im Leben wie im Schachspiel: wir entwerfen <einen Plan>: dieser bleibt jedoch bedingt durch das, was im Schachspiel dem Gegner, im Leben dem <Schicksal> zu tun belieben wird. Die Modifikationen, welche hierdurch unser Plan erleidet, sind meistens so groß, daß er in der Ausführung kaum noch an einigen Grundzügen zu erkennen ist." |
-- Arthur Schopenhauer

|Nov-07-13|| ||Karpova: Thanks for the info about Altona. I just wanted to inform readers shortly about the location of the Simul. A "today" may have been appropriate.|
|Nov-09-13|| ||whiteshark: Thanks to all for your postings!!!
Somehow I've been a bit tired and unimaginative lately. Now, while my premium will expire in the next 24 hours, I'll take that again as an opportunity to break for an indefinite period of time.

|Jan-21-15|| ||tpstar: <whiteshark> Thank you very much for including my game in Game Collection: 97d_French Disasters -Teh Dark Side of Chess|
Check this out = Saemisch vs Mieses, 1925
Keep teh faith. ;>D
|Feb-06-15|| ||whiteshark: Thanks for dropping by, <Tony>.|
Aside of T Palmer vs W Surlow, 1998 I also integrated T Palmer vs K Noren, 1990 into a.m. collection. ;)
It often happened that these French miniatures also ended up in Game Collection: zz29_1838 (Ra8+Bc8 untouched) (this collection is relatively young - but I like the related pattern).
Well, this forum will automatically shut down tomorrow...

|Mar-04-15|| ||whiteshark: Quote of the Day
" You know, all these lofty matters we have been studying - strategy and endless opening subtleties - are not the main thing. <The match will be decided, first and foremost, by our calculation reflexes during play, <or, as they say, who is better at doing 'you go there and I go here,'>> and no one knows how his mind will behave. "
