  whiteshark: <OCF> No, I only have noticed that <Mame vs Mame> had played 30,31 and 33 moves during their last three Gashimov Memorial games. So I'm curious if there's a numerological pre-arrangement conspiracy going on. I'll keep it that way. ;)

And good luck to the rest of you. :)

Jun-22-18  paavoh: Hi <whiteshark>, what is your connection to Finland? You seem to know the language, if I'm correct. Thanks for your notes on Finnish chess players.

  whiteshark: <paavoh> I've no special relation to Finland, but once living in Lübeck and working there as shipping agent I have a 'special' relation to the Baltic. ;)

<You seem to know the language, if I'm correct.> All credit belong to https://translate.google.com/

It seems to me that Finnish chessplayers are a bit uncared for here at chessgames.com - I've purely accidental checked just two issues of the <Kirje Shakki> magazine http://www.shakki.net/liitot/skl/ for deceased players.

Jun-27-18  paavoh: Thanks <whiteshark> for the explanations. I should pick up the translator myself again, it seems to work much better than in the past.

And good luck for die Mannschaft today!

Jul-31-18  capanegra: Hi, <whiteshark>. Recently I was reading about soviet chess study composers and problemists who lost their lives tragically during the Terror. One of them was Petr Moussoury (1911-1937), and this is the only one from whom I didn't find one single composition in the web. By chance do you have any Moussoury problem to share in your database?

  whiteshark: Hi <capanegra>. I haven't heard of him before.

Nothing in the <Endgame Study Database> until I figured out his Russian name

ПЕТР СТЕПАНОВИЧ МУССУРИ,

Afterwards I found some details here:

https://www.sakharov-center.ru/asfc... (a database of the Stalinist victims - his mother is there, too) It seems he was of Greek origin and worked as a freelancer for the chessmagazine <64> --> https://chesspro.ru/_events/2011/ne... and https://chesspro.ru/thesaurus/neish... (there's a study, he created jointly with Eugene Somov)

Finally, here's an online database that shows <57> of his compositions! http://www.yacpdb.org/#search/ODg4O... - really one is spoilt for choice. ;)

Aug-02-18  capanegra: <whiteshark> Muchas gracias, Maestro!
