Thanks, David. That's a lovely photograph--I think I've seen it here before. I'm beginning where I left off, with a slow perusal of Minev's "A Practical Guide to Rook Endgames". Endgames fascinate me, and Yasser wrote the introduction.

nikolai minev is a friend of Yassers, and lives in the same building Yasser lived in for many years, but the latter sold his condo and moved to amsterdam.

i often think i should call IM Minev, but await a better level in chess by me. i cannot afford coaching, but there are fifty good teachers or masters here... and i am sure these great players or friends of their friends could make an appropriate introduction, but i have copiously not asked for one.

just as i have not asked GM Seirawan for a blitz game on the internet, which i can have at any time, so i wish to get a bit better, first. i hope one day i found that i did not miss my chance.

i believe mr minev stuggles with some problems with his vision or sight, too, so do not wish to bother him, nor have i any chess pedigree, and leave him to his work undisturbed.

warmly, dk
