This is about how to touch only one time in a single tour with your knight every field of the chessboard
  
woohoo
  
I know, I know, there was some more attractive match of Duchamp in art history (if you remember the photo)

Marcel Duchamp was really a very good chess player

Remarkable performance.. particular.
Not really my genre, but particular.

Yes, for me, too, there is an evident allusion to Duchamp.

OT: Impressive the sound system


Edit:
Interesting how creativity works...

The local elementary school, named after Emanuel Lasker, is the only public school in Germany which teaches chess as part of the curriculum, and it had done so since 1823; just as the Ströbeck secondary school, which was closed in 2004, due to too few pupils.

I felt that it was very close to mate. The problem is if I don’t mate I’m losing,” Carlsen says. “So I was trying to find some middle ground and my time was running out. I don’t know. I was just so nervous, I couldn’t make it happen. It ended up just being nothing.”

It must be a nice film, not only for kits.
I've never seen the movie entirely

It is based on the life of prodigy chess player Joshua Waitzkin, played by Pomeranc, and adapted from the book of the same name by Joshua's father Fred.

BRAVO !

When he was ten, Keymer was on the September 2015 cover of the German chess magazine, Schach Magazin, being hailed as Germany’s greatest talent since Emanuel Lasker.[1]

chess must be a boring game, those champions already know all the moves. There's no strategy, it's more like a computer program or a "choose your own adventure" book. They can also play without the board or game pieces, just by saying the moves out loud. lol :)

The Lewis chessmen (Norwegian: Lewisbrikkene; Scottish Gaelic: Fir-Tàilisg; Scots: Lewis chesmen) or Uig chessmen, named after the bay where they were found,[1] are a group of distinctive 12th-century chess pieces, along with other gaming pieces, most of which are carved from walrus ivory. Discovered in 1831 on Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland,[2] they may constitute some of the few complete, surviving medieval chess sets, although it is not clear if a set as originally made can be assembled from the pieces. When found, the hoard contained 93 artifacts: 78 chess pieces, 14 tablemen and one belt buckle. Today, 82 pieces are owned and usually exhibited by the British Museum in London, and the remaining 11 are at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.

Wusste ich bisher so nicht.
Ein guter Artikel

Der lange Abstieg einer Legende (2019, taz)

Bobby Fischer verbrachte die letzten Jahre seines Lebens als gebrochener Mann in Island. Erstmals spricht nun der Priester, der ihm den letzten Segen gab.

The article reports about the last years of his life on Iceland. A sad story.

  
@The passed pawn Inn+ My father had an African friend when I was a kid, I think his name as Shaikh, like the title. I am not sure about this, but I believe the chessboard was made by Shaikh's brother. I think it was a gift, but I will have to ask my dad - maybe he bought it. He passed it on to my youngest a couple of years ago. It is made of marble, yet the pieces are soft to the touch. I love this board. :heart:

Thank you!

Really impressed by his life and chess style!. But most of all, I need a course to learn to pronounce his surname ;)
  
Indeed, it's really a tongue twister for experts :-)
