**CURRENT DRAFT UNDER INSPECTION FOR PROMOTION: Game Collection: WCC: Botvinnik-Bronstein 1951

**DUE DATE- THE DAY I WILL SUBMIT THIS DRAFT TO <Daniel>: Submission Day <<<SUNDAY APRIL 6>>>

########################

<Greetings colleagues!>

Daniel Freeman has given us his blessing to edit the History of the World Chess Championship.

Our task is twofold: to fact check each introduction and source the information to reliable books, journals, or newspapers. At present, many of the intros are either imprecisely sourced, or sourced to dubious websites.

Second, we should edit the intros so that any new material we discover should be added to the existing text, which is often skimpy and usually contains a good number of factual errors.

<Here is our <<<watchword>>>: all facts in the intros must be sourced to reliable primary material>

###############################

STANDARDIZATION TEMPLATE

<1. How did the Match come about?

2. What were the conditions for the Match? The stakes, the number of games, the rules, and this could also include information about the backers, the venue, the referees, and so on.

3. What happened at the Match?>

<Karpova>

Wiener Schachzeitung:

It was brought back to life after WWI in 1923 under the name <Neue Wiener Schach-Zeitung> but the old name was reinstated already in 1924, when it was called <Wiener Schach-Zeitung>. So <Neue Wiener Schach-Zeitung> only if the 1923 issues are quoted.

1855: <Wiener Schach-Zeitung>

1887-1888: <Wiener Schachzeitung>

1889: <Wiener Zeitung> (just a small special edition with a chessboard picture between <Wiener> and <Zeitung>)

1898-1916: <Wiener Schachzeitung>

1923: <Neue Wiener Schach-Zeitung>

<SITE FIELD> Country Code guidelines, courtesy of User: Paint My Dragon:

The normally accepted convention is, I believe, to refer to the URS (The Soviet Union) from 22 Dec 1922 until 26 Dec 1991, when the Union collapsed, and thereafter, to use RUS (Russia), or one of the other Baltic states that formerly comprised the Union. Unfortunately, the attribution of three-letter country codes to the Balkan states over a range of dates spanning the nineties and noughties, is a much more complicated process, and more than I could begin to explain on these pages, so pray hard that you don't have to report on any matches from what used to constitute Yugoslavia!

  chancho: <Jess> I imagine you in South Korea going a bit bananas with all that paperwork.

Having to prepare your plans for the classes, and of course, the students.

(with the inevitable troublemaker or two that disrupt them.)

I hope all is well.

Mar-17-12  JoergWalter: there was a guy who applied for a job in a circus. the director asked him: "What is your particular talent?" "Oh, I can imitate a bird" "Many people can do that", the director replied. "Sorry then", said the guy, climbed on the window and flew away.

  harrylime: Jess what do you think of Carlsen ? I'm playing thru his games just now and rate him very highly.

Comparing him with titans of the pre silicon age is almost impossible, but to me anyway he's uber evocative of Smyslov. What do you think ?

  technical draw: A little joke for you <JFQ>:

Korean english teacher: "Kim (who's in the first row) tell Jan (who's in the back row) to go to you."

Kim: "Come here, Jan."

Teacher: "Very good. Now tell Jan to go back to his seat."

Kim walks to the back row and says: "Come here, Jan!"

Hahahaha!

log(32768)/log(2) is an integer.
