You have nothing to fear but my library.

"Ein Mensch, was ka Schach spielt, ist ka Mensch. Im Schach sitzt die Intelligenz, sag' ich. Da kann einer vier Meter lang sein, Schach muß er spielen, sonst ist er ein Tepp. Ich kann Schach. Ich bin auch kein Tepp. Jetzt frag' ich Sie; wenn Sie wollen, antworten Sie mir. Wenn Sie nicht wollen, antworten Sie nicht. Wozu hat ein Mensch den Kopf? Ich sag's Ihnen selbst, sonst zerbrechen S' Ihnen noch den Kopf, es wär' schad' drum. Zum Schach hat er den Kopf. Verstehen Sie mich? Sagen Sie ja, dann ist alles gut. Sagen Sie nein, dann sag' ich's Ihnen nochmal, weil Sie's sind."

Weltmeister Dr. Siegfried Fischer(le)
from Elias Canetti, Die Blendung, 1935

It's better to have D Love and lost than never to have D Love at all.

Rudy Kousbroek: Larkensviedje

Die ochtend zei het wrattenzwijn:
Nu moet het afgezopen lijn,
Stijnen helpt geen kweek.

Ja, drerk in plaats van woefenis:
Leven en schrijzen, room voos bis,
De wagen van de deek:

Waandag, Minsdag,
Zoensdag, Wonderdag,
Dijdag, Waterdag, Vrondag.

Zes dagen bijver zijn als nijen,
Op Vrondag vredig liggen zijen,
Dat maakt een woede geek.

Philosophy for beginners:
I do not think about things I don't think about.

   Jun-27-20 D D van Geet vs M Schaefer, 1986
sneaky pete: Or more likely 42.Qc6+ .. [DIAGRAM]
   Jun-26-20 John Keeble
sneaky pete: From Chess Nos. 897-8, May 1983. As so often Baruch Wood was ahead of his time. RACISM IN CHESS Simon Garrow's recent book about Dan the Pawn seemed an innocent frolic aimed to teach a youngster how to play chess whilst enjoying a tale of a white bishop outwitting a black ...
   Jun-25-20 Beliavsky vs Quinteros, 1986 (replies)
sneaky pete: The date November 1986 is wrong. This game was published in Chess 983-984, Mid-July 1986, with the final move 16.Be5 .. [DIAGRAM] If 16... Nxc3 17.Qh5+ g6 17.Bxc3 will follow. [DIAGRAM]
   Jun-23-20 P A Koetsheid vs W A T Schelfhout, 1919
sneaky pete: An entertaining game with a lot of questionable moves. After 29... d5 [DIAGRAM] I don't think white still can win.
   Jun-15-20 Lasker vs H Mueller, 1934
sneaky pete: Van Trotsenburg discussed this game in his Septemebr 1, 1934 column in Algemeen Handelsblad. He doesn't mention the alternative 9.Bc4 .. and the catastrophe from 1908. A bad memory or a sign that the Lasker vs Raadsheer simul game with ...
   Jun-07-20 Kunath vs Grava, 1866
sneaky pete: 15... c5 was probably a clerical error where 15.. Nc5 [DIAGRAM] was intended.
   Jun-06-20 Knude vs K Kaulich, 1847
sneaky pete: Another incomplete game from the first BDG theme tournament, played in the early 1950s. Diemer (on page 123 of Das moderne Blackmar-Diemer-Gambit, Band 1, a reprint of his 1956 classic Vom ersten Zug an auf Matt!) tells us that white "who lost without a chance after 13.Nxg6 .." ...
   Jun-06-20 Knude vs Paulisch, 1844
sneaky pete: Incomplete game from the first BDG theme tournament, played in the early 1950s. Diemer (on page 123 of his magnum opus) only gives the first 12 moves and informs us that white has drifted away from the straight and narrow to Losers Avenue ("geriet auf die Verlierer-Strasse").
