  The chess games of Hans Berliner
Hans Jack Berliner was born in Berlin in 1929, but when he was eight years old he moved with his family to America.
Certainly, if Berliner doesn't know as much as many leading players then he can't really try to be inventive; a good book would be one where he presents information which OTB masters know in a clearer way.
It would however be great to get Berliner and Adorjan to do a joint book presenting their cases to one another.

  Berliner Philharmoniker (Symphony Orchestra) - Short History
Among guest conductors coming to Berlin were Hermann Levi, Hans Richter, Felix Mottl, Felix von Weingartner, Ernst von Schuch, the composers Brahms and Grieg, and the composer-conductors Gustav Mahler, Richard Strauss and Hans Pfitzner.
Hans von Bülow was succeeded by Arthur Nikisch in 1895.
Although employees of the state of Berlin, the musicians still constitute a "free orchestral republic" (Wilhelm Furtwängler) which is self-governing and retains powerful rights of self-determination.

 Estrin-Berliner   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Hans Berliner, on his way to the title, produces a fearsome novelty against future correspondence champion Yakov Estrin in the latter’s specialty, the Two Knights Defense.
Berliner’s opening idea was so deep that it is still debated to this day, and needless to say, Estrin could not even begin to solve everything, even under the relatively leisurely time controls afforded by correspondence chess.
Hans B. Berliner published analysis of 12.Qe2 Be6 13.fxe4 Nb4 14.Na3 0-0-0 15.Qf2 in "From the Deathbed" (it was his main line to the fxe4 variation) so he must have considered playing it earlier.

 Berliner Simul: 18 March 1960
Berliner, an industrial psychologist at the Martin Company's Titan missile plant in Littleton, is one of the country's most active players and is ranked as a Senior Chessmaster by the U.S. Federation.
Tonight's exhibition will pit Berliner against the region's leading players in which he will give his opponents a time advantage of approximately 30-1 to study their moves, while he moves from board to board making his moves in rapid succession.
Berliner's opponents had a 37 to 1 advantage to study their moves while he was going from table to table making his moves.

 THE SYSTEM: A WORLD CHAMPION'S APPROACH TO CHESS
Berliner offers up a new way of looking at the game, and tries to present his system of thought in detail so the aspiring student can emulate him.
Fischer demanded proof in the form of variations and Berliner, confident in his own chess enlightenment, gave him a lecture that is so simplistic as to be insulting (even a 2100 player would find it trivial).
Berliner is clearly a very intelligent man, but his writings make it clear that (as far as chess goes) he's either poorly informed, deluded, or the greatest genius chess has ever seen.

 [No title]
Though Weaver Adams was his inspiration, Berliner comes with credentials Adams lacked, for he has indeed been a world champion, in the area of chess that comes closest to absolute truth: correspondence play, in which he compiled a record of +94 1 =10 in the 1950s and '60s.
Adams' error, Berliner believes, was in starting with 1 e4, which controls only two squares (d5 and f5) and thus is inferior by principle #4 to 1 d4, which controls three squares (c5, d4, and e5).
Berliner rationally evaluates development not in terms of how many pieces have been moved, but by how many moves are yet required to get one's pieces to their best squares.

 The System
Berliner, after all, is a former world correspondence champion and one of the most successful of the early computer chess programmers.
But Berliner is claiming a forced win for White, and having discussed this position over the years with GMs and IMs, I can tell you that they are not at all sure of its assessment (at least one GM and one IM think that it’s a draw with best play).
Berliner fails to mention 12...Qa3 (or other good ideas for Black), and I would only add that when I analyzed these lines in depth with IM Larry Remlinger (who played 10.Rc1 and, like every other strong player, gave it up), we found it hard for White to even equalize, much less try for an advantage.

 Yakov Estrin vs Hans Berliner (1965) "Ich bin ein Berliner"
Hans Berliner, on his way to the title, produces a fearsome novelty against future correspondence champion Yakov Estrin in the latter’s specialty, the Two Knights Defense.
Berliner’s opening idea was so deep that it is still debated to this day, and needless to say, Estrin could not even begin to solve everything, even under the relatively leisurely time controls afforded by correspondence chess.
Here too, Berliner was a step ahead of him, capping off the crown jewel of his correspondence career with a beautifully played — and instructive — rook ending.

 Chess: play online chess
I recently read a book by Hans Berliner a CC WCC from US contemporary of Fischer called The System, in which he has a chapter talkign about chunks and value that go along with them.
Berliner says they are groups of pieces, or pawns, or both, that work together in coordination to create board control, attack and or defense, that is worth more than the added up value of the pieces.
If you do not like playing d4 this book still has a lot of information about positional values of pieces and pawns that was very instrictive and the principles of his system can be appreciated in any chess opening, however you wil see no e4 lines in it.
