The Perseus Project: The classics in Greek, Latin & English--hyperlinked

A page from the Venetus A, the oldest complete manuscript of the Iliad, courtesy of Harvard's Multitext Library:

http://www.homermultitext.org/hmt-d...

From Google Books, a link to Tarrasch's book on the 1908 world championship. I've translated his notes on the game pages.

http://books.google.com/books?id=0C...

Lasker's book on St. Petersburg 1909

http://www.google.com/books?id=o3eC...

Tarrasch's <Dreihundert Schachpartien>, which covers his career from the beginning through his match with Chigorin in 1893

https://books.google.com/books?id=9...

Chess-play is a good and witty exercise of the mind for some kind of men, and fit for such melancholy, Rhasis holds, as are idle, and have extravagant impertinent thoughts, or troubled with cares, nothing better to distract their mind, and alter their meditations; invented (some say) by the general of an army in famine, to keep soldiers from mutiny: but if it proceed from overmuch study, in such case it may do more harm than good; it is a game too troublesome for some men's brains, too full of anxiety, all out as bad as study; besides it is a testy choleric game, and very offensive to him that loseth the mate. William the Conquerer, in his younger years, playing at chess with the Prince of France (Dauphine was not annexed to that crown in those days) losing a mate, knocked the chess-board about his pate, which was a cause afterwards of much enmity between them.

--Burton, The Anatomy of Melancholy

"Just because many great chess players were obnoxious jerks, doesn't mean that if you're an obnoxious jerk you're a great chess player."

--AgentRgent

"You are also a machine, as are Anand, Carlsen, Kasparov, and Fischer. You and the others are just inferior machines. Your idea of beautiful chess is simply faulty chess that is not caught in its faults."

--vsaluki

"Alas, before the post mortem the gods have placed the game."

--Phony Benoni

"A chess engine is a great antidote to human optimism."

   Sep-21-18 Ulf Andersson vs A J Mestel, 1982
 
keypusher: [DIAGRAM] This is where the double blunder occurred. It's tricky, for example 29.Qe2? Be5 is a more or less forced draw. 29.Re2 is playable, but so is 29.Red1!: 29....Qxe3+ 30.Kh1 and Black has to either exchange rooks or give up the d-file, with a hopeless position in either ...

keypusher: <Sally> I see you're still writing nonsense about computers. Humans play chess games; other humans (annotators) write about those games in books, magazines, and online. If the human annotators don't use computers to check their work, they'll make mistakes (big and little). ...

keypusher: It's funny, 15 years ago Bill James was lamenting the trend of teams adding more pitchers and saying that chasing the platoon advantage was not a good strategy. He thought the trend could not continue. Maybe he'll be right in the long run, but not so far.
 
   Sep-18-18 AVRO (1938) (replies)
 
keypusher: Chessmetrics ratings are supposed to be comparable across generations but they aren’t, really. So I wouldn’t put much stock in a ratings comparison. If you treat ranking as a proxy for strength then obviously a tournament with four of the top five is going to be stronger than a ...

keypusher: <Howard: Give the 22-year-old kid a break! He still took clear second, and this was the only game that the lost.> No, he took clear first. Quite a few games from this tournament are missing from cg.com. See USSR Championship (1933)

keypusher: <Telemus: <Dionysius1: Hi <Telemus>. Are you in time to change 24 to 27?> No, I am too late. Of course it should be "The immediate 27.♗d4 (or 27.♗h6) ...". Sorry for the typos and thank you for the hint!> Thanks for pointing out the ...
 
   Sep-06-18 Gunsberg vs Maroczy, 1902
 
keypusher: After 38.Re4: [DIAGRAM] If Black tries to mark time with ...Kf8-f7-f8 or ...Bd6-c7-d6 White has Bf1-h3-e6, after which the e-pawn goes.
 
   Sep-03-18 Tal vs A Matanovic, 1961
 
keypusher: I took a look at Tal's notes to the game, aided by Stockfish. <any thoughts as to why Tal ignored the knight on f4? is it b/c of Qf6 and Bg4 sac after? thoughts? thx> Yes, exactly, although taking the knight was playable. Tal: <After the text-move (12....Nf4), the ...

keypusher: <ughaibu: What about 1.Qd7?> Well, that is problematic! Beautiful. After I'd convinced myself that obvious attempts at brilliancy like 1.Bxg7 didn't work, I finally lit on 1.Re4. I knew it wasn't the answer, because who cares about a move like that? I don't think I would ...

  keypusher: <madlydeeply> Kasparov is a millionaire who's held on to his money...Karpov is a billionnaire according to some, despite having a face like a pencil sharpener and a body like Stephen Hawking. I don't think you can infer PR from wealth.

Mar-31-18  madlydeeply: maybe we played on gameknot. I just play hundreds of lichess games nowadays. so easy. i guess they are all millionares. Kaspy was good at making money, of course. I'm still upset that he didn't play shirov! maybe i should let that go....

Well, maybe you clobbered me on some other site. Nothing wrong with being mad about Kasparov stiffing Shirov...

<chancho> Thanks, I look forward to watching.

Apr-04-18  madlydeeply: That could have been Shirov's buster douglas moment! anyway Kasparov was exposed at that st louis quad a few years ago... he did ok on the first day... with his meticulously prepared openings.. but then Naka, So and Fab did exactly one night of computer homework and busted them all. Kasparov owns the 80s-90s just like Fischer owns 1972
