   Jul-27-15 E Bankert vs R Ehrler, 2007 (replies)
TheFocus: Wow. This was so easy, even for a Monday. <Tiggler> <Smothered mate in 3. What do those who found it have in common? Seen it before (or something similar).> Yes, just simple pattern recognition.

   Jul-26-15 Kasparov - Karpov World Championship Match (1990) (replies)
TheFocus: Such stupid remarks by Garry. Karpov is considered a great expert in the Ruy Lopez. Black or White.

TheFocus: <al wazir> <Of course I expect that since the Saudis are American allies you'll blame the U.S. anyway.> Well, of course. Nothing bad happens in the world without the US getting the blame.

TheFocus: What a horrible bio. Could you at least tell us his home country?

TheFocus: And of course, Japanese is spoken differently by men and women. There is the women's way of speaking, and a distinct men's way of speaking.
   Jul-26-15 Capablanca vs Menchik, 1939
TheFocus: <JohnBarleycorn> Vera's face wasn't't enough to melt Capa's heart. Or mine for that matter
   Jul-26-15 Hartlaub vs Lasker, 1911
TheFocus: According to Ken Whyld, in <The Collected Gamesof Emanuel Lasker>, the source is "Dr. Hartlaub's Glanzpartian 1919>, pg. 88. These moves are probably analysis to an earlier loss to Lasker.
   Jul-26-15 Jozef Coolen (replies)
TheFocus: Joe is just chillin'.
   Jul-26-15 George Henry Mackenzie
TheFocus: In the last paragraph of the bio above, it reads <...the disease forced him to move away the games...>. Surely this is not correct.
