  whiteshark: Tartakower stand bei Abbruch der Partie verdrießlicherweise recht beklagenswert, und Böök war daraufhin so unvorsichtig, eine die Nutzlosigkeit weiterer Leiden andeutende Bemerkung zu machen. Beides zusammen - das war zuviel!

Man fühlte, wie Tartakowers Entrüstung über die nichtsnutzige Schachgöttin sich sozusagen in die moralische Sphäre erhob: ein neues Bonmot war fällig.

Es war an den unglücklichen Finnen gerichtet und lautete:

<Bitte bleiben Sie seriös!>

  Calli: <ws> I didn't quite get it. Book said it was Nutzlosigkeit or useless for Tarta to continue?

  whiteshark: <Calli> When the game was adjourned (around move 41, I guess) Tartakower's position was rather rueful, when Book made a careless comment about the senselessness of further suffering. Both (position and comment) were to much for Tarta and a new witticism came up... when he replied: <Please keep (stay) serious!>

  Calli: <WS> Vielen Dank. Ich verstehe nur ein bisschen Deutsch..
Aug-02-14  Mats G: The game was adjourned after black's 49th move. The sealed move was 49. -, Ne3+. It was when the game was to be continued when Böök made his comment in, according to Böök himself, "an impatient tone" (page 154 of Eero E. Böök: Mestarin mietteitä, Shakkitarvikkeita, Järvenpää, 1985, ISBN 951-95916-0-5).
