From Google Books, a link to Tarrasch's book on the 1908 world championship. I've translated his notes on the game pages.

Lasker's book on St. Petersburg 1909

http://www.google.com/books?id=o3eC...

Tarrasch's <Dreihundert Schachpartien>, which covers his career from the beginning through his match with Chigorin in 1893

https://books.google.com/books?id=9...

Chess-play is a good and witty exercise of the mind for some kind of men, and fit for such melancholy, Rhasis holds, as are idle, and have extravagant impertinent thoughts, or troubled with cares, nothing better to distract their mind, and alter their meditations; invented (some say) by the general of an army in famine, to keep soldiers from mutiny: but if it proceed from overmuch study, in such case it may do more harm than good; it is a game too troublesome for some men's brains, too full of anxiety, all out as bad as study; besides it is a testy choleric game, and very offensive to him that loseth the mate. William the Conquerer, in his younger years, playing at chess with the Prince of France (Dauphine was not annexed to that crown in those days) losing a mate, knocked the chess-board about his pate, which was a cause afterwards of much enmity between them.

--Burton, The Anatomy of Melancholy

"Just because many great chess players were obnoxious jerks, doesn't mean that if you're an obnoxious jerk you're a great chess player."

--AgentRgent

"You are also a machine, as are Anand, Carlsen, Kasparov, and Fischer. You and the others are just inferior machines. Your idea of beautiful chess is simply faulty chess that is not caught in its faults."

--vsaluki

"Alas, before the post mortem the gods have placed the game."

  keypusher: NN-kp, gameknot 2006

After 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. Nc3 Bg7 4. e4 d6 5. f3 O-O 6. Be3 Nc6 7. Nge2 a6 8. Qd2 Rb8 9. h4 h5, somebody on gameknot astonished me with 10. Nd5. Has anyone ever seen this before? The game continued 10....e6 (apparently 10...e5 and ...b5 have been played before. 10...e5 doesn't look logical to me since it just invites 11 Bg5.) 11. Nxf6+ Bxf6 12. Bg5 b5 13. g4 (I was convinced I would be mated in a few more moves at this point) 13...hxg4 14. fxg4 Bxg5 15. hxg5 f5?! 16. Qe3? fxg4 17. Qg3? Qxg5 18. Rh4 Rf3 19. Qh2 Rh3! (now Black can relax) 20. Rxh3 gxh3 21. Bxh3 e5?! (a little too relaxed) 22. Bxc8 Rxc8 23. Qh3 Rf8 24. Qe6+ Kg7 25. Qd7+ Ne7 26. Qxc7 Rh8 27. Qxd6 Rh1+ and Black won. Still, I thought 10 Nd5 was pretty frightening.

15 games in the database. Opening Explorer

The only one with the continuation 10...e6 is Murey vs F Wong, 1997

Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: <diademas> Wow, thanks, some amazing games in there. If you go by the numbers pretty much nothing seems to work for Black. It's striking that Gunawan wins wonderfully with Black against Tarjan, but after that you find him on the White side. Ernst clobbers Portisch...it's a little surprising that you don't see 10.Nd5 more. I really don't belong on either side of lines like this.

Checking OE, the two most common moves are 10.0-0-0 and 10.Nc1, about equally well represented in the database. But castling scores about 30% for White and Nc1 scores about 70% for White. How often does <that> happen?

A beauty, isn't it?

Oct-14-19
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: <Fusilli> <diademas> Yes, it is! Of course once I finally got it I wondered why it took me so long. I saw the stalemate after 1.Ba2 h6 2.Bxc4 early, and it was also pretty quickly apparent that White couldn't abandon his pawn on h4, so you'd think 2.Qxc4 would have occurred to me by simple process of elimination.

For a long time I was convinced that the first move had to be a queen move for some reason.

Oct-14-19
Premium Chessgames Member
  Fusilli: <keypusher> Same process here, only that once I saw the mate on f7, I stayed stuck for a while on how to respond to 1...Kh6. Kept seeing only 2.Qg4 with stalemate and not the simple 2.Qg2.

  Fusilli: Nice positional work, <keypusher>! Once you secured the good knight versus the bad bishop, you are positionally winning. Good job taking the game to that outcome!

  keypusher: <Fusilli> I feel like I played pretty well in the early going, but starting with move 27 I made one mistake after another. I’m much better at positional play than at tactics.

“Greenwich” is an old friend but he’s never taken chess too seriously.

<Bobsterman3000: <Carrots and Pizza - To count errors or hyperbole as lies is dishonest. If someone things Clinton was never charged with a crime and they are shown that he was, it doesn't make his statement a lie. Not all false statements are lies.> <wtpy: Keypusher, Absolutely right. Even mistaking a fact doesn't make you a liar, it just makes you mistaken.>

Sure, you people are right.

But for someone to (still) keep claiming that "collusion is now proven" is not being mistaken at this point. It's just willfully lying.>

Good that you want to settle it.

I too want to settle/resolve it for once and all, however, presently I am a little too busy with work .

I will come back to this conversation and take it to its logical conclusion and show why I think you are completely wrong ,<bobsterman> ,in calling <saffuna> a liar.

I am posting this post in the forum of <keypusher> and in the forum of <johnlspouge> (for the future reference of <wtpy> and others). I hope <keypusher> and <johnlspouge> would be ok with it.

Thank you guys. Let us try to elevate our conversations as much as we can.
