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. ;)

  whiteshark: <Laskerjahr <<2018>>>

NN vs F Rhine, 2017 <FSR> I found the following example given by Emanuel Lasker in his <Common sense of Chess>. Compared to your game he switched black's moves 6+7. ;)

"<1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nf6 3. Nxe5 Nc6> Black evidently believes in the principle of quick development, and even neglects to take White's e-pawn, in order to gain time. <4. Nxc6 dxc6 5. d3 Bc5 6.

  whiteshark: " Kantholi Rathnakaran is one of the most colourful players of Indian chess. The way he sacrifices pieces is just unbelievable. More often than not he has no explanation for why a specific move or sacrifice was made. But in this video we try to decode the play of Indian Tal. Why does he sacrifice a piece, how does he feel the positions and what is his way of thinking. <Ratnakaran> is a man of few words. <He doesn't like being called the Indian Tal. Why insult Tal is what he says.> But I think he is a genius and so do many other strong players. ..."

  whiteshark: [Great White Sharks]

Sharks have the reputation of being cold-blooded killers that will attack and try to eat just about anything. But in reality, they are actually a lot pickier than many people realize - Attacks on humans are very very rare.

But even the "cold-blooded" portion isn't even true - at least not when it comes to Great Whites. Because they are in fact part of a small group of sharks that can elevate their body temperatures above the water temperature - effectively becoming warm-blooded. Here's how they do it:

  whiteshark: London (1932)

<MissScarlett: The Premier Reserves was jointly won by Adrian Garcia Conde and <R Schadle>, described in the <Linlithgowshire Gazette> as 'a brilliant young German.' A few weeks earlier, he'd won the London Boys' Championship. In between, he even turned out for Kent in a match vs. Essex. Then he promptly disappears. I assume he returned to Germany - any sign of him back there?>

<Tabanus: <Richard Schädle, Augsburg?> http://archive.is/MVm5>

Very likely, as the details fit.
Chessbase Megabase has <36> hits, among them <7> games w/ full score, <2> games w/ fragments only and <27> w/ results only.

All games played in 4 tournaments between 1932 and 1937. During this time he played for the chess club <SK Ingolstadt> (which is ~ 80km away from Augsburg). He gave a Farewell-Simul there in 1937.[moving to Augsburg?]

The SK Ingolstadt history page also has a picture with him where he wears a uniform* (page 16, left photo, middle of the back row: http://skingolstadt.de/index.php/en... + sadly it says he felt during WW2.

Originally, this shark was thought to be a mako shark and was called Isurus hastalis. ... If you want to dive into greater detail, I suggest reading some of those papers in the references at the bottom of this page.
