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: The BBC tells me that Boris Johnson needs a new ethics adviser. Maybe <MissScarlett> is interested in the job?
   Jun-15-22 J H Donner vs H Mueller, 1950
sneaky pete: Obviously a wrong score. Here is my reconstruction after 43.Qe2 .. [DIAGRAM] 43... Rhh8 44.g4 hxg4+ 45.Qxg4+ Kf8 46.Qg7+ Ke7 47.Rc4 Rdf8 [DIAGRAM] and the rest as we see it here. I like how after 18... Rag8 (Rook to the half open file, attempting to look like a bad guy), Donner
   May-06-22 J H Sarratt vs W Lewis, 1816
sneaky pete: The Oxford Encyclopedia (page 24, 3rd column) by Levy and O'Connell has this game with the date July 28 and the source MS H. J. Murray 64, Bodleian Oxford, "Collection of European Games". They give Lewis as the second player here, but being White and making the first move ...
   Apr-04-22 P Johner vs Spielmann, 1914
sneaky pete: A lot of questionable moves in this game. Marco suggests in the tournament book that after 38.Qd6 .. [DIAGRAM] white still has winning chances.

sneaky pete: It's just like in Hollywood movies, wrong colours. Black is white and white is black. Painful to look at.

sneaky pete: For BOE consult this poem by Jan Hanlo:
   Mar-07-22 Szabo vs Znosko-Borovsky, 1946
sneaky pete: The tournament book adds as the last move 60.Re5+ .. [DIAGRAM]
   Mar-05-22 Euwe vs Stoltz, 1946 (replies)
sneaky pete: It's 51.Qd6+ .. in both the original tournament book and in Münninghoff's 1976 Euwe biography. The latter mentioned gives the game, with notes by Euwe, as published in the Tijdschrift, 1946. After 51.Qd8+ .. black can play ... Re7 when white will continue 52.Qf8+ Rf7 53.Qd6+ ..
   Feb-23-22 Captain Evans vs McDonnell, 1827 (replies)
sneaky pete: The Oxford Encyclopedia of Chess Games has this game (dated 1826, but with an uncertainty mark on top of the 6) giving as its source the British Chess Magazine, year 1928, so a 1958 re-publication is irrelevant. But what source was used by the BCM?
