"Of my 57 years, I’ve applied at least 30 to forgetting most of what I've learned or read, and since I succeeded in this I have acquired a certain ease and cheer which I should never again like to be without." --EMANUEL LASKER

Emanuel Lasker

(born Dec-24-1868, died Jan-11-1941, 72 years old) Germany [what is this?]
Emanuel Lasker was the second official World Chess Champion, reigning for a record 27 years after he defeated the first World Champion, Wilhelm Steinitz, in 1894.

Statistician Jeff Sonas of Chessmetrics writes, "if you look across players' entire careers, there is a significant amount of statistical evidence to support the claim that Emanuel Lasker was, in fact, the most dominant player of all time." By Sonas' reckoning, Lasker was the No. 1 player in the world for a total of 24.3 years between 1890 and 1926.


He was born in what was then Berlinchen (literally "little Berlin") in Prussia, and which is now Barlinek in Poland. In 1880, he went to school in Berlin, where he lived with his older brother Berthold Lasker, who was studying medicine, and who taught him how to play chess. By Chessmetrics' analysis, Berthold was one of the world's top ten players in the early 1890s.

Be awake. Consciously do things to bring yourself into the moment. If you’re with someone and not paying attention, stop and zone in on that person and be with them fully. Start to eliminate background noises and sights until it’s just you and them. If this is difficult, while you’re alone, practise removing other senses so you begin to focus on one thing. Close your eyes for a minute and focus on a single noise or cover your ears and look at a single object.

   Mar-20-22 J M Fuentes vs Alekhine, 1945
TheBirdman33: <caisso> What eval does your engine give? The position is very drawish, maybe minute chances for White, but I suspect Fuentes offered a draw and the great Alekhine accepted.

TheBirdman33: I couldn't help myself! Which, ironically, is another one - the recent chessforum activity page holds no prisoners, jess sayin' Maybe I should seek help?
   Feb-27-22 Firouzja vs Aronian, 2021
TheBirdman33: This probably being the last round of the day the players (will check that out and add it) must have been very tired, but 15...Qc8 must be a big questionmark move, 21...Be4 is a blunder, really, as white can snap the B off with the rook, after which Nf5 is the killer, forcing ...

TheBirdman33: Sorry to run a few weeks late following my latest post here - I am involved in a legal procedure that caught me by surprise --all is well now though-- but I had to stay away from any distractions for a while in order to get a grip and run things smoothly. <Jessica> Thanks

TheBirdman33: <Telemus> Thanks a lot for that link -- as can be read from Max Euwe's eulogy, <Rueb> is always spelled like this, not with U-umlaut < ü >.

TheBirdman33: Reshevsky wins the US Championship with a staggering 16/18 score... The TPR adjusted for inflation must surely be insane!
   Feb-03-22 Kashdan vs A Asgeirsson, 1937
TheBirdman33: How instructive the way Mr Kashdan develops the light pieces after 1.d4 b5 -- a Polish Defense system. At first I thought the resignation was rather premature, yes there are two pieces attacked by the Queen, but after castles and Queen takes Knight, and Nb6-d5, the white queen ...
