catlover: <HMM><Susan Freeman> The other day, National Public Radio aired a story on Prince. I missed the first part but what I gathered is that a number of songs Prince recorded were never made public, but recently have been made available.

   Oct-19-19 Nimzowitsch vs Weenink, 1930 (replies)
catlover: As <JimNorCal> said, Nimzowitch moved his pawns up quickly. It looks to me that he moved his pawns forward without the proper development to support that movement. I wonder if Nimzowitch was having an off day. It did not look like the white pieces were being moved by an ...
