|Aug-02-03|| ||Mellowscotch: Wow, this NN dude won a game in his career....isn't this the only game in the DBASE that he wins?|
who is he anyways?
|Aug-02-03|| ||PVS: Only 16 of NN's wins are in the database at this point. He is an amateur and takes on some very tough competition. |
|Aug-02-03|| ||Jonber: Eh, I donít know it you two were joking or not, but NN isnít one particular player, itís a pseudonym used when name of the player is unknown. |
|Aug-02-03|| ||PVS: It is a running joke here to personify NN. |
|Aug-02-03|| ||PVS: I believe NN's real name is Nescio Nomen, but most people call him Nomina. |
|Aug-02-03|| ||ughaibu: I normally address him/her as "baby". |
|Aug-02-03|| ||PVS: <I normally address him/her as "baby">|
I am not sure that anyone who has been playing chess since 1590 should be properly addressed as such.
|Aug-02-03|| ||ughaibu: Non-patronising endearment. |
|Aug-03-03|| ||PVS: Fair enough. I still like Nescio Nomen. |
|Mar-05-04|| ||soberknight: Who is NN?
Nobody Nose! :)
|Apr-05-04|| ||N N: < PVS: It is a running joke here to personify NN. > < ughaibu: I normally address him/her as "baby". > <PVS: Fair enough. I still like Nescio Nomen.> I'm a him and my name is NN. It is not short for anything it's my name. |
|Jul-31-04|| ||ricardolopez: Why not 15...,f3 ? |
|Dec-11-04|| ||DanielBryant: <ricardo> Good question... seems winning to me |
|Mar-30-05|| ||prinsallan: Ricardo is right.
White cant recover without losing at least one minor piece more than Black.
Maybe Im mistaken, as usual though ^^
|Nov-22-05|| ||drmariogodrob: On 15. ... f3, White will lose an exchange after 16. Rxf3 Nxf3 17. Qxf3 Nf2+ 18. Nxf2 Qxc4. The passed center pawn may provide some minute drawing chances, but with all those pawns on the baord it's not likely.|
|Jan-25-07|| ||yachadhoo: Why not 14...Nh2 ?|
|Apr-12-08|| ||stupidiot21: long live NN|
|Dec-22-08|| ||WhiteRook48: Staunton gets crashed!|
|Dec-31-08|| ||WhiteRook48: Yay for NN!!|
|Mar-15-09|| ||WhiteRook48: quite unclear|
|Feb-13-11|| ||theweaponking: Nathan Arthur Peter Daniel Stephen Victor Isaac Richard David Quincy Tyler Edward Harold Drake Francis Newman has finally won one!!!|
|May-19-11|| ||Skakalec: Coldblooded defence by NN.
I get chills just looking at his
13. Qe2! 14. Ne4! 15.h3! 16.Rxf4! 17.Rxf2! and finally 18.d3!! (threatening queen capture if B retreats.)
I don't know if you noticed that but to me seems if NN runs into winning position it's seldom he blunders it away?
|Oct-10-18|| ||TheaN: Coming here from the current GotD where this 'win' by NN is discussed, I'm not sure why 15....f3 didn't get more traction when posted, as it's a completely bust for White.|
<15....f3> and what? <16.Rxf3?! Nxf3 17.Qxf3 Qe1+! 18.Qf1 Qxe4> where SF9 gives <19.d3?! (hxg4 Qxg4 -+) Nf2+! 20.Qxf2 Qxc4! 21.dxc4 Bxf2>. So yeah, Staunton was in fact doing what he was supposed to, just didn't win it.
|Oct-10-18|| ||PawnSac: < stupidiot21: long live NN >|
"Not Named" will live as long as chess. Anonymous players have contributed to chess theory since the beginning.
|Oct-10-18|| ||Diademas: Paul Keres, Viktor Korchnoi, and Alexander Beliavsky are the only chess players to have defeated 9 undisputed world champions in classical games.|
I guess NN has a much better record.
