We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

Great psychological ploy, especially when Berliner used the
BTW - this game was number 1 in GM Soltis' book "The 100 Best Games of the Twentieth Century" and is a distinct favorite of mine.
You can find the game here or email the Dayton Chess Club and they will email you a copy of the game they use for in house instruction.
Simply put "Estrin vs. Berliner game request" as the subject line.
