Jul-14-09  whiteshark: Alles Gute zum fünfzigsten Geburtstag, Stefan!

Mögen dem kreativsten Eröffnungstheoretiker der Gegenwart niemals die Ideen ausgehen!!

Jul-14-09  AlphaTsino: Looking for English copy of this Stefan Bucker work: M-265 Gambits and Unusual Openings, April - June 1997 74 pages, in German algebraic.
Jul-17-10  BIDMONFA: Stefan Buecker


Feb-25-12  whiteshark: Dear readers,

To my great regret the publication of Kaissiber had been interrupted since April of 2010 (when issue 37 came out). The interruption was caused by a longer illness of mine. After the recovery I moved at the end of 2011 from Nordwalde to Pforzheim. [...] After this basic private change, I am now planning to restart Kaissiber very soon. At least three Kaissiber issues per year will be published in the future, with Kaissiber #38 scheduled for the end of April, 2012.

All best regards,
Stefan Bücker
February 19, 2012

Feb-25-12  thomastonk: <whiteshark> Great news! I like Kaissiber very much.
Feb-17-13  thomastonk: Nothing happened after that announcement one year ago, but at least I saw that Stefan Bücker played with some success at the recent ELO Open Baden-Baden.
Jul-14-15  whiteshark: Happy Birthday, Stefan!
Jun-15-21  Nosnibor: Is Stefan any relation to Karsten Buecker? He played in the Oakham Young Masters Tournament 1988 and scored 0/9.
