    Sorry, but I can't take anyone serious that has an odd way of spelling Arthur.

    Maybe his name is not Arthur. You did not think of that did you?

    Are you referring to Yusupov's award-winning Training Course in 9 volumes?

    Maybe you mean Yusupov's Evolution series?

    Arthur is a common masculine given name. Its etymology is disputed, but its popularity derives from its being the name of the legendary hero King Arthur.
    Art is a diminutive form of the name. A common spelling variant used in many Slavic, Romance, and Germanic languages is Artur.


    It was an inside joke, if you don't get it, you don't need to.

    So are you saying you are prejudice against those people who speaks Slavic, Romance, and Germanic languages?

    Guter Gott im Himmel. So langsam im Verstand, noch so im intelligenten Schach, fügt nicht oben hinzu.

    Did you look up a little German?

    Good God in the sky. So slowly in the intellect, yet so in the intelligent chess, adds not above.

    That does not answer the question.
