    HI and thanks for reading and the comment.

    The phrase is in the story. Grim says it when he losses the game to me. Better go back and check it out.

    Bye

    Thanks so much for reading both parts.

    That was 10.000 words or so.

    Denver, I bought "The Chess Companion", by Chernev, and that story is NOT there. Do you have any idea which book it might be in?

    Hi King

    Hmmm. . . I never thought of a third part. I used to think that part was when

    The Grim Ripper would come and get me for real.

    I guess I will write the third part. Good Suggestion.

    Thanks for reading and the great comments.


        "What the heck is that 'Amaurosis Scacchistica?'" I asked.

        "It's just the name for chess blindness. I was there when TChigorin invented it in 1892 when he lost to Steinitz.."
