Commander John J Adams : " Morbius, what is the Id? "

Dr Edward Morbius : " It's an obsolete term. I'm afraid once used to describe the elementary basis of the subconscious mind. "

Hi, I'm Paul Morten and I live in Auckland, New Zealand. I've been playing Chess for over thirty years (and still haven't got it right yet). My father ( Peter Morten ) taught me the moves when I was aged about ten.

I didn't really get "Chess Fever" until the Fischer-Spassky match in Iceland in 1972. My first chess heroes were Spassky, Fischer, Marshall, Alyekhin and Capablanca but with more maturity I'm much more appreciative of Lasker, Chigorin, Niemzowitsch, Botvinnik, Smyslov, Tal, Keres, Nezhmetdinov, Petrosian, Kasparov and many others. Collecting chess books since 1972 I now possess a chess library I'm sure any club would be proud of. Many game submissions to the database have been made from these books. Up to 25th September 2015 submissions number 5,883 games (this total will continue to grow with time).

I'm fascinated by Chess History and the players who make it so what follows is a large list of important tournaments played in the 19th and 20th Centuries. These collections have been compiled by a number of members of chessgames.com and I'm extremely grateful to them and thank them for their efforts.

Something of note for future kibitzers

<chessgames.com> <IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT>

<As most devoted Chessgames members know, the Kibitzing areas of Chessgames--like any large internet forum--have had their share of flame wars. Vitriolic exchanges fly back and forth between people who scarcely know each other. Lately, one of them in particular has become very visible, spilling onto pages of all sorts of classic games. This longstanding problem has now proliferated to the extent that nearly every Chessgames member has been exposed to it.

Lately, the Chessgames.com admins have had a flood of complaints, and as a result they've deleted many messages. We decided to start to keep score, and determine exactly which members are the cause of most of our disturbances. Not surprisingly, we found that the same names crop up again and again.

Now we're prepared to take extraordinary measures to try to stamp out this flame war: we have now placed a number of members on kibitzing probation. All of these individuals have been identified as the main participants of this flame war.

There are seven of them (at current count) and all been placed on kibitzing probation for one week, in what we call a "cooling off period". They are as follows: <Colonel Mortimer>, <JoergWalter>, <LIFE Master AJ>, <Nemesistic>, <Robed.Bishop>, <SimonWebbsTiger>, and <TheFocus>.

We hope that when this week is over, some degree of civility is restored.

The primary rule broken by all of these individuals is rule 3, "No personal attacks against other users", the rule tailor-made to discourage flame wars. However, many of the deleted posts were also guilty of rule 1 (obscenity) and rule 3 (spamming/duplicating posts). We are not going to address the infractions on a post-by-post basis, but if you are earnestly confused at our posting policies, contact us at chess@chessgames.com, and we'll be happy to clarify your question.

During this cooling off period, our admins will continue to clean up some of the mess created during the past few months. However, they aren't going to try to bail water out of a leaking boat. If any antagonist tries to revive the flame war during this period, he or she will be placed on kibitzing probation without compunction.

We know that some people will have many more questions, so a list of notes is compiled below. Other questions are best addressed directly to chess@chessgames.com.

• The following individuals were not placed on the list in spite of identified posting violations. They are instead hereby issued warnings: <King Death>, <KKDEREK>, <Rob Lob Law>, and <theagenbiteofinwit>.

• The "cooling off period" extends from 12:00am midnight, Monday, February 27 to 12:00am midnight, Monday, March 5.

• This list is not perfect. There may be one or two people on it who don't deserve to be there. Meanwhile, there are surely people who deserve to be on it, yet aren't mentioned. So it goes.

• If you are on probation and want to communicate to an administrator for any reason, contact chess@chessgames.com. Do NOT create an alternate account for any reason whatsoever.

• If you are on probation and feel a great need to voice your opinion about this matter in public, you have only two sanctioned methods: 1. Post something on your "bio" area, so that people can read it if they choose to pull up your profile page. 2. wait a week.

• If any member attempts to subvert this one week cooling off period by registering a second "sockpuppet" account, or using a sockpuppet account already established, they will be subject to an extended (if not indefinite) probation.

Finally, let us remind everybody that the purpose of this action is not to single out specific members, nor to "make an example" of out anybody, but rather to restore civility and decency to the forums. Please help us accomplish that goal by contributing to a peaceful Chessgames, in whatever way you are inclined.>

  Benzol: <chancho> <td> <open defense> <perfidious (Alan)> good to see you all here. NZ has moved from level 4 down to level 3 in lockdown so Construction, Forestry, Takeaway places and Schools have started up again but distancing rules apply. The queues at Wendys, KFCs and McDonalds have been beyond belief. People must have got sick of cooking for themselves or the home cooking that's been dished up every night. Hope you are all well and this corona crisis hasn't affected you too badly. Cheers guys.

<Benzol> It is so wonderful to see you posting again at cg.com. Welcome back! I didn't know where you went, so over on sub-reddit I've been telling everyone you inherited Sir Edmund Hilary's bee-keeping estate.

It was a guess, but I'm standing by it.

  Benzol: Hi <jess> good to see you here too. No I haven't been bee keeping but a few health issues have had me busy. I'm not sure how much I can contribute these days anyway. As the saying goes " The moving finger writes and having writ moves on ". Hope all is well with you. Cheers.

I hope all is well with you too brah. Cheers to you and Antipodes from Canada. I wish we had your prime minister here.

May-02-20
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: I personally have been very impressed with Jacinda Ardern and Ashley Bloomfield at the daily press conferences here. The NZ Prime Minister has stepped up to the plate in the current crisis and also with the Christchurch Mosque shootings last year. Her international profile is riding high at the moment but there is an election in September so it will be interesting to see what the local electorate makes of it all.

BTW hasn't the Canadian PM just put a ban on guns in Canada ?

Premium Chessgames Member
  Richard Taylor: Hi Paul. How are things. Are you on here more regularly? I signed up for this year's NZ Seniors (September). By then everything was in lockdown. I actually was working on my fitness in 2019 and I continued during the lockdown level 4. It is a strange time.

Now as you know we are running out of water. Or it is down.

On the Chess front the chess clubs all stopped and there was an online tournament. Also there was Carlsen's online tourney. Which he won!

I still play over games. Just been looking at our old edition of Golombek's book of Capa's games. I was talking to Vic about that you had noted Alekhine had studied I think it was the Hastings Tournament etc or maybe the NY Tournament. In any case it helped him. But seeing the games it is a pity they never played again.

  Richard Taylor: Re Adern and Bloomfield. I think they were on the button. As it was going on I was 'studying' via a course from Cornell University on viruses! It was interesting and I had my old biology books and chem books out and the internet. I stopped as it was pretty time consuming but very interesting. Good to here some rationality instead of the insane chatter on Rogoff or from the Madman in Charge of the US.

What a huge difference between Adern and The MCU! (Or The Worry in Charge of Australia). But she must be doing SOMETHING wrong!? She is very clever, and focuses on what is the optimum. The National Govt. in opposition need someone like a Trump or someone a bit different (Trump unlike the Brasil man is a typical untypical person...something like that) who can, not sure (do something? find some contentious issue?), or they will lose the election. Even Peters has been behaving himself!
