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.

sneaky pete: it's a good thing <Stonehenge> hasn't noticed this game, else he would have forcibly removed the players from Malaga and dropped them in Torremolinos.
   May-19-21 O Ulvestad vs O'Kelly, 1964 (replies)
sneaky pete: One shouldn't trust any website on matters of date and location. Best sources in this case would be Spanish newspapers and chess magazines from that period. After studying some second best sources for a while, my guess is that for the first two Costa del Sol tournaments (1961 en
   May-18-21 P Bilguer vs NN, 1840
sneaky pete: NN should be NsNs because she's clearly a Latvian.
   Mar-28-21 Chigorin vs Steinitz, 1889 (replies)
sneaky pete: Both Bachmann (Schachmeister Steinitz, Dritter Band, 1920) and Khalifman & Soloviov, Mikhail Chigorin, The First Russian Grandmaster, 1999) give after 28.Be4+ Kc4 29.Rxf7 Kb4 30.e6 d3 31Rd7 1-0.
   Mar-19-21 Maurian vs Morphy, 1856
sneaky pete: The BCM score (August 1978) is the 52 moves version (and the date October 1856), so that differs from the Times-democrat. Lawson claims that he found the score in Maurian's notebooks.
   Mar-11-21 J H Pannekoek vs Loman, 1926
sneaky pete: How Pannekoek lost this game: At a critical stage during the game, when his position was lost, Loman said "Excuse me, I have to go to the bathroom" and stopped the clock. He stayed away for an hour and a half, analysing the position ...
   Mar-01-21 Hannah vs T Barnes, 1862
sneaky pete: Suhle ends his version of the score with 45... Rxa3 "und Schwarz gewann". Maybe a matter of delicacy. He only gives the same 85 games from the main tournament one can find in the Löwenthal book, and 17 games from the 1861 Bristol Congress, as well as problems from the London ...
   Mar-01-21 Owen vs Anderssen, 1862 (replies)
sneaky pete: The 46 moves score on this site is identical with the one in Suhle's 1864 book (game 75, page 70). Suhle doesn't give any sources for his gamescores, but if this score differs from the one in Löwenthal's book, he apparently did not copy from Löwenthal.
   Feb-22-21 Morphy vs Maurian, 1866 (replies)
sneaky pete: Lawson in the August 1978 BCM: "With the exception of a very few, given in recent years to small magazines, and a few more appearing in the recently published biography of Paul Morphy, none of these games, bar two, were ever re-published." So only a few of the 1978 BCM games ...
   Feb-22-21 Morphy vs Maurian, 1866
sneaky pete: Lawson (Unknown Paul Morphy games, BCM, August 1978) dates this game November 11, 1866 (from the notebooks of Maurian).
