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

http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper...

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."

keypusher: Yes, I remember hearing what seemed like an unusually sharp color guy earlier this year and of course it was Romo. I think he needs to be careful about not talking over viewers heads (mine included).

keypusher: Thanks for those too. I didnt mean to imply that hang-on-to-the-pawn is the right or modern way to play. My claim was much more narrow that the particular formation that we saw in Paulsen-Anderssen and Maroczy-Charousek vanished because White abandoned it, until A0.

Nc8 (<Starting Out: Alekhine's Defense> says this position is good for players "who are tempermentally suited to prolonged trench warfare." True enough. But you have to avoid getting mated first!)

12. f4 Bh4 (Earlier against <whereismymind> I played 12...Nc6, so I decided to vary. Clearly I am taking myself way too seriously. :-))

13. Bd3! f5? (Bringing Black to the verge of defeat.) 14. exf6 Bxf6 (After 14Qxf6 15 f5! undermining d5 is strong.) 15. Qh5?! (15 Qg4! Qd7 16 f5! e5 17 Nxd5! Qxd5 18 Be4 and 19 Bxb7 Fritz)

(Hurrying to reinforce the kingside, but that isnt the only place White can attack.) 19. Rg3 (19 Nb5! puts Black in a quandary, since 19Qd8? 20 Bxg6 is unthinkable.) 19Rg8 20. Rh3 Nf8 (Finally the king has some security, and Whites weaknesses begin to come to the fore.)

21. Rg1 Ne7 22. f3? (Fritz suggests a pawn sacrifice for lingering pressure: 22 f5 ef 23 Qf4 c6 24 Qd6.) 22Nf5 (Now the position is blocked and black is firmly in control.) 23. Re1 c6? (One consolidating move too many. 23Nxe3 24 Rxe3 Bxd4 should win.) 24. Qg1 Rg7 (The rook and queen swap files.) 25. Qf2 Re7 26. Ne2 Qf7 27. Ng3 Qg7 28. Bxf5? (Better to dig in with 28 Ne2.) 28.exf5

(Here I expected 29 Rg1 and planned a queen sacrifice in response: 29Rae8! 30 Nxf5 gf 31 Rxg7 Bxg7, and White cannot keep the rooks at bay. The game continuation is much quieter but no less hopeless for White.) 29. Bd2 Rxe1+ 30. Qxe1 Bxd4 31. Bc3 Bxc3 32. bxc3 Rd8 33. Qb1 Re8 34. Kg2 Qxc3 35. Qg1 d4 0-1
