Aug-31-06  AbhinavAsthana: I wonder why didn't white take the knight in the 9th move. May be because 9.exf6 Qe8+ 10.Ne2 Nd4 But I don't see any Danger in that. Can any one explain the situation?

  Honza Cervenka: <AbhinavAsthana> Don't forget that white Bishop on a4 is en prise as well. After 9.exf6 Re8+ 10.Ne2? (10.Kf1 bxa4 is better.) 10...Nd4 11.Nf4 Qxf6 or even 11...d6 black will win the piece back with advantage.
Sep-01-06  AbhinavAsthana: Thank You for the reply Honza Cervenka. I got the point now. On which game are you now?
Feb-25-07  IMDONE4: blacks better in the final position... 10...bxa4 11. exf6 Qxf6 12. Na4 Re8 and its

  whiteshark: Der 16. Juli 1883 war auch in Nuernberg ein sehr heisser Tag und die beiden (erschoepften) Kaempen gingen, nachdem die Schlacht geschlagen war, gemeinsam in einen der naheliegenden, an der Pegnitz liegenden Biergaerten, um sich unter einem schattenspendenden Kastanienbaum des Lebens zu erfreuen. Spaeter kamen noch weitere Turnierteilnehmer hinzu und es wurde ein feucht-froehlicher Tag....
May-08-07  vonKrolock: quick translation <"That day, July 16th, 1883, was also in Nürnberg a very hot one, and both (exhausted) fighters went, after the battle was struck, together to one of the breweries in the neighborhood, on the Pegnitz' bank, in order to cheer up life, under a frondous chesnut tree's shadow. Later came still further Tourney participants, and it became a moist-merry day..."> From the tournament's Book?! - Every chess player played some of such "non-games", for one or another reason - this one is immortalized as a "Beer-Draw" by this lively comment...

  whiteshark: Hallo <vonKrolock>!

Es gibt so viele Dinge, die ich nicht in Englisch ausdrücken kann (siehe Geschichte oben), da suche ich Nischen und schreibe einfach in Deutsch.

- Du scheinst Dich für 'ältere' Schachgeschichte zu interessieren ?! Wofür besonders ?

- Hattest Du deutsche Vorfahren, die nach Brasilien ausgewandert sind ?

May-12-07  vonKrolock: <whiteshark> Selbstverständlich, man sollte hier in besonders Plätze für das Sprechen andere Sprachen, warum nicht? Some Years ago, I started to research about Carl Schlechter's, career (with some atavical heimweh involved, surely, because many o my vorfahren came from Austria before 1914, and so i read what I could find about Chess in the period 1890-1918 - I have a reasonable memory, and like to transmit what I remember, nothing special about this...
