    Yeah, that's true.

    One thing I found rather interesting recently was going through Chernev's Most Instructive Games and finding huge praise heaped on Bogoljubov-Reti Mahrisch-Ostrau 1923, which I thought was a pretty pedestrian affair actually.

    "Bogoljubov-Reti Mahrisch-Ostrau 1923, which I thought was a pretty pedestrian affair"

    I never knew they even had an affair.  Who was the pedesrian?

  • #18

    (As I said, she was a pretty pedestrian.) Smile

  • #19

    Andy, she looks young for someone from 1923? And where are the handsome male pedestrians?

  • #20

    Okay, no doubt about it...I'm gonna have to work a little harder on my hoaxes next time. Smile
