Edward Winter's Chess Explorations (63)

by ChessBase
6/18/2011 – The latest picture quiz from the Editor of Chess Notes presents for identification seven chessplayers. Since all of them are leading masters, the whole exercise ought to be simplicity itself. As will be seen, however, there is one slight complication with the photographs. Can readers rise to the challenge? Personally inscribed book prizes are on offer to those who can identify the mystery seven.

Edward Winter is the editor of Chess Notes, which was founded in January 1982 as "a forum for aficionados to discuss all matters relating to the Royal Pastime". Since then, over 7,100 items have been published, and the series has resulted in four books by Winter: Chess Explorations (1996), Kings, Commoners and Knaves (1999), A Chess Omnibus (2003) and Chess Facts and Fables (2006). He is also the author of a monograph on Capablanca (1989). In 2011 a paperback edition was issued.

Chess Notes is well known for its historical research, and anyone browsing in its archives will find a wealth of unknown games, accounts of historical mysteries, quotes and quips, and other material of every kind imaginable. Correspondents from around the world contribute items, and they include not only "ordinary readers" but also some eminent historians – and, indeed, some eminent masters. Chess Notes is located at the Chess History Center. Signed copies of Edward Winter's publications are currently available.
