|Dec-17-11|| ||Penguincw: Didn't Kasparov try to repeat this game once.
Short vs Kasparov, 1993
|Jan-05-12|| ||kingscrusher: I have video annotated this game here:
|Jan-18-12|| ||Llawdogg: Thanks kingscrusher for the excellent video.|
|Feb-01-12|| ||Naniwazu: A game played in true Romantic style.|
|Feb-02-12|| ||Mozart72: The opening of the "Immortal Game" actually ends with 5.Bxb5 and the middle-game begins with 5...Nf6. The middle-game ends with 11...cxb5 and the end-game begins with 12.h4. It is necessary to have a more precise understanding of the fases of the chess game....|
|Feb-06-12|| ||Diademas: According to the database Kieseritzky actually had a positive score against Anderssen. +7 =2 -6.|
|Apr-07-12|| ||Mad Bishop: Just finished a 3D animation of this game:
|Jun-03-12|| ||ketchuplover: Someone on chesscircle.net tried to pass this game off as one of their own.|
|Jun-17-12|| ||The Big Lebowski: An amazing game with a beautiful mate! Black has 7 pieces including his Q to whites 3 minor pieces, although 3 of blacks pieces haven't left their starting position.|
|Sep-12-12|| ||waustad: <mad>The animation is amusing, though not the best way to see what is going on from the chess point of view. I liked the way that the captured pieces were absorbed into the taking piece. Nice job.|
|Jul-06-13|| ||Nightsurfer: The matrix of sacrificing two rooks in order to lure away the opponent's Queen away from Her King, thus letting The Lady get lost deep in the camp of Her bitter enemy and thus baring the Queen's beloved King of His most important bodyguard - the pattern of <"The Immortal Game"> - , has not only been the blueprint (with colours reversed) for the blitzkrieg-style battle R Rakovic vs R Gralla, 2010, but for the encounter B Hund vs C Hartog, 1978 as well, a salute to <"The Immortal Game"> 127 years after that historic day at London 1851.|
|Jul-06-13|| ||KlingonBorgTatar: Anderssen's great rival Steinitz did try to sacrifice both rooks at Vienna 1882 vs Winawer. The irony of it all, he lost and the undivided first prize went with it.|
|Jul-06-13|| ||KlingonBorgTatar: Reti also Tried the double rook sac in 1920 twice , both against then future world champion Euwe ! And winning from both colors!! ( Euwe-Reti Amsterdam 1920 and Reti - Euwe Rotterdam 1920)|
|Jul-07-13|| ||Nightsurfer: Chess history has not been fair with regard to Lionel Adalbert Bagration Felix Kieseritsky ! More or less everybody knows that Lionel Adalbert Bagration Felix Kieseritsky has goofed up <"The Immortal Game"> versus Adolf Anderssen ... but who knows that the notorious <"Immortal Game"> has only been <one> (!) in a series of <15> (!!) games, the source: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lionel..., and those 15 games have been a contest of 15 games against Adolf Anderssen, the <WINNER> of <"The Immortal Game">, but the <LOSER> of the contest against Lionel Adalbert Bagration Felix Kieseritsky ! |
The closing balance of Lionel Adalbert Bagration Felix Kieseritsky at the end of his 15 games against Adolf Anderssen at London 1851: Lionel Adalbert Bagration Felix Kieseritsky wins 8 games, he loses 5 games and he draws 2 games, so Lionel Adalbert Bagration Felix Kieseritsky was the real 9:6-winner against Adolf Anderssen !
But history does not give a damn ...
|Jul-07-13|| ||JoergWalter: <Nightsurfer> it was an 8:7 win.
Anderssen will rotate in his grave when seeing your ability to add numbers...|
|Jul-07-13|| ||Nightsurfer: Oh, oh, dear <JoergWalter>! My source is the article on <Lionel Kieseritsky> at WIKIPEDIA, I have quoted that source, please check it out: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lionel... , you will find the figures there after the headline "Schachtaetigkeit" at the end of the 2nd paragraph. I assume that the figures at WIKIPEDIA are based on the MEGABASE of ChessBase, so please check it out!|
|Jul-07-13|| ||Karpova: The source seems to be SBC rather: http://www.edochess.ca/batgirl/Kies...|
|Jul-07-13|| ||JoergWalter: <Nightsurfer> you are a journalist, are you?|
|Jul-07-13|| ||JoergWalter: <Karpova> there (SBC) we have|
Kieseritzki vs. Anderssen 9-5=2
which adds up to 16 games.
|Jul-07-13|| ||Nightsurfer: You are right, dear <JoergWalter>, I am a journalist, not a nitpicker ... and the point that I have wanted to make - and that I still want to make - is the undeniable fact that <Lionel Kieseritsky> has defeated <Adolf Anderssen> and not vice versa - and that is the message of my posting, the exact margin whatsoever.|
|Aug-23-13|| ||keypusher: Proof that the Immortal Game will never die:
And check out Bill Cowher in eyeliner.
|Aug-23-13|| ||offramp: Good pun!|
|Nov-04-13|| ||OldTimr: This guy Anderssen played some amazing games.|
|Nov-04-13|| ||offramp: Anderssen and Kieseritzky played some very interesting games together and this is way up in their top 5.|
|Nov-10-13|| ||OldTimr: <offramp> They played an odds game with Anderssen removing a rook or maybe knight and pawn off the board at the start. I'm surprised I can't find it here.|
