  Nightsurfer: <Gisbert Jacoby> may be the <"sprechende Schlaftablette">, but he has done a great job with regard to promoting the theory that there are strategic features that can be applied both to chess and football (!) - namely by introducing that man to chess who has put forward that very theory that you can become better in football just by learning chess (!), namely Felix Magath ...

Maybe <Jogi Löw>, the coach of the German National Team in football should hire both <Gisbert Jacoby> and Felix Magath, after the defeat that Germany has suffered against Italy during the European Championship 2012 on June 28th, 2012?! If the Germans want to continue to dream of the FIFA World Cup 2014?!

  DrNyet: Jacoby is mentioned in a recent article at as a "chess historian" who was working to update CB's Mega Database. The article focuses on Paul Morphy and gives some historical details as well as impressive games from when Morphy was 12 or so.

  DrNyet: Hmmm there is also a Gisbert Jacoby page at ChessBase that says he "was for more than ten years the trainer of the Hamburg support group, the workshop in which were forged the talents of young Hamburg chess players, some of whom on to become grandmasters such as Matthias Wahls and Karsten Müller. In the 80s he was a trainer in the Bundesliga and a second of Robert Hübner for the candidates final against Viktor Korchnoi in 1980 and the candidates match against Vassily Smyslov in 1983. Together with Matthias Wüllenweber and Frederic Friedel he founded the ChessBase company in 1986." I didn't recall hearing of him previously, which probably mostly says something about my memory.
Jan-06-18  zanzibar: <die sprechende Schlaftablette> = <The talking sleeping pill>, roughly.

<Anschauen und -hören auf eigene Gefahr !!> ~= < Watching and listening at your own risk !!>

Here's a few versions of the 2017 Mega-Chessbase DB promo's:

<Intro - MEGA 2017>

<MEGA DB 2017 - Paul Morphy>

<MEGA DB 2017 - Morphy v Staunton>\

Since these links are on youtube, they're less likely to go stale (vs. <whiteshark's> link above).
