I too am sorry about that, A J... Smile

AndyClifton

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?

AndyClifton

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

AnnaZC

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

AndyClifton

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