I thought that might be a link to the BBC news website.

Chess books are often a good source of these annoyances.

In a quick scan of Taylor Kingston's translation of Najdorf's book of the Zürich 1953 tournament I found:

it offered "personal" invitations (p7)

An already known move which Bronstein himself had to "withstand" at (p45)

a "mysterious" move (p87)

many pieces are "hanging" (p 89)

in games such as this a master "feels" his way (p 89)

Now Dr Euwe must "come back to reality" (p 299)
