Chess quotes on the game page work their way into one\'s memory, but do they improve one\'s play?

Do you want to discuss them?

Is any your Open Sesame?

Cast your eye down the page and let us know what you think.

I will post some together here and open blogs for one or two.

Thanks, Extopian. It is an interesting one, that. I wonder how similar your feeling is to that which Lev Abramovich describes. He does say the variation was hidden in his emotional memory, so he must have been ruing a past defeat. Hope extinguished and reborn.

Wonder if it was this? Sicilian Najdorf, Polugaevsky Variation: 7 ... b5!

I take my hat off to anyone who knows how the pieces move, Henri.

Do you agree with the following?
