Once again Bronstein

Once again Bronstein: Here is a fabulous video (via Chessbase) by GM Yasser Seirawan about Bronstein made shortly before he died. Yasser is uninhibited in his praise of the man, undeniably one of the world’s greatest players of the middle of the 20th century.

bronstein is no relation to bernski und bronstein, the only german sitcom on telly in oz?

btw, sorry about lack of reply to my previous post. don't internet so often.
i'm doing a ministry traineeship, 1yr left, and trying to work out whether and where to go to college. there's some good places here in sydney, but i would sort of like to go back to D-Land.
i guess i'm not sure what the places there are like, what sort of training you get there, what the theology is like, whether having passible german and no other languages means you could only do after-college training there, or whether you could start off there.
some of the things i've read say you need latin and greek to start as an undergrad, which sounds quite full on!

so your thoughts as an outsider now there would be invaluable! again, i'm not really sure what exactly, but was hoping you might have an idea. cheers.

Hi Dougie,
what would be your goal with the studies?

yeah gosh still trying to suss that out.
in many ways, just an alternative to the usual fare of theological colleges in australia. sydney in particular.
the sausage-factory (gibt's in Deutsch auch so ein sprichwort - Wurstfabrik?!) of Moore, Ridley and SMBC are a little depressing as possibilities.
so i guess i would need to know what sort of teaching colleges they are - lib/rational/conserv/ortho/evang/etc

also the pre-requisites. as i said, i've read that gk, hebr. & latein are all necc for undergrads. none of which i have!

plus, it would just be nice to go live in D-Land again, and the general history is quite enthralling. of course history and present are usually separate entities, i'm not sure how much continuity one should expect!
