Chess Quotes

"Nimzovitch became then for me more or less the author of the only book which could help me get away from these Euwe books, which, I admit, are very good for the ordinary club player. But once you've reached a certain strength you get the impression that everything that Euwe writes is a lie."
— Bent LARSEN, in KEENE, Nimzowitsch: a reappraisal.

  I still like them! - DrD
