  wordfunph: "Chess is simply a wonderful game. Luring an opponent onto unknown territory, then outplaying him --- that will never lose its fascination for me."

  HeMateMe: Any Bischoff Bishops Opening in the db here?
Dec-01-18  kamekura: PhilFeeley, he’s indeed that Bischoff. The game is available on chesstempo. I had to look it up because one of the moves in a variation in the book doesn’t quite make sense (17... Bb4).
