Once again it is my pleasure to present to the readers of this website a book by the director of the Löberitz Chess Museum, Konrad Reiß.
He seems to have turned almost every "chess stone" in recent years and in this way has contributed and continues to contribute significantly to the fact that chess history in the (chess) triangle Löberitz - Ströbeck - Magdeburg, i.e. Saxony-Anhalt, is well researched and documented. Numerous of his earlier publications bear witness to this, as does the one presented here in an elegant way!

Last October (see Zur Schach-Akademie in Achdorf bei Landshut und vom Sailerschen-Kreis (To the chess academy in Achdorf near Landshut and from the Sailerschen circle)), Siegfried Schönle reported on his brochure published by the Löberitz Chess Museum, Zur Schach-Akademie in Achdorf bei Landshut und vom Sailerschen-Kreis.
The 1st edition is already sold out and the 2nd edition was published at the beginning of February. It was printed in a larger format, DIN A4, to make the text easier to read.
The brochure can be obtained from Siegfried Schönle at email@example.com for the price of 20 euros + postage – as a donation to the Chess Museum.

We have received the sad news of the passing of our member Luc Winants. The Belgian GM has been a member of the CH&LS since 2010 (at that time it was still the KWA).
We would like to point out the obituary on the ChessBase website:
Belgian Grandmaster Luc Winants (1 January 1963 – 7 February 2023) died
