  al wazir: At the time Koltanowski held the record for simultaneous *blindfold* games. Was this one of them?
Nov-05-15  Ferro: La gran tormenta
Nov-05-15  Ferro: I prefer h3
Thanks
Nov-05-15  kyg16: The old Greek sacrifice
Nov-05-15  thulium: Can black escape with 15. . .Ke7?
Nov-05-15  Helios727: <thulium> If 15... Ke7 then 16. Re1+ Ne5 17. Qe2 and white will win the e5 knight and be left two pawns ahead. Perhaps black's best alternative was 12... Kg7 13. Qh5 N7f6 14. exf6 Nxf6 15. Qh4, where black is a pawn down, but has fight left.
Nov-05-15  catlover: Looks to me like 7....e5 was what started Sanger down the wrong path.
Nov-05-15  catlover: I seem to recall that in the late sixties, a public television channel in South Florida used to broadcast a program with Koltanowski. He used a chessboard on a flat screen with movable pieces, like you used to see at tournaments to show the audience the moves being played, and he would play through famous games, giving his commentary.

  thegoodanarchist: I played in a simul once, long ago. And like Sanger, I played to checkmate.

GM Edmar Mednis surprised me with a smothered mate, and it was the first time I had ever seen it. I didn't realize I had played to mate until it was delivered on the board.

  TheAlchemist: Hmm, maybe "mating sequence" or something like it would be a tribute to Frederick Sanger, but I guess it's not that good a pun.

  Lighthorse: <catlover: I seem to recall that in the late sixties, a public television channel in South Florida used to broadcast a program with Koltanowski.> It was on here in NY also, and called "Koltanowski on Chess." I used to watch it religiously. One episode was actually a lesson on how to play blindfold. And I remember him mentioning that blindfold chess was illegal in the USSR, but didn't they realize that looking ahead is essentially blindfold chess? Interesting observation!
Nov-05-15  parisattack: There is also an LP record(s) 'Koltanowski Teaches Chess' - quite entertaining. I have only Volume 1, 'My Approach to the game.' It shows Kolty instructing a young damsel on - wait for it - the Colle System.
