Aug-26-03  rochade18: This is a joke, isn't it??
Dec-25-03  Marnoff Mirlony: I can hardly believe someone actually played this.
Dec-26-03  Catfriend: I am sure people played it a few times in a blitz... The question is: <>-WHAT'S THE POINT OF ADDING IT TO THE DB????
Premium Chessgames Member We add games to the database by the thousands. We do not review every game. (That's your job!)
Dec-26-03  PinkPanther: This game is actually pretty funny, and sad I guess you could say.

  jaime gallegos: please I dont understand why there is games like Kasparov-Sting and you dont do the same with masterpieces like Capablanca-H. Steiner ( ok, it was an exhibition game in USA , but Sting ? ) please put at least that game !!!

  Benzol: <shadowmaster> I'll second that. I'm happy that this facility exists, and thankyou for all your efforts. If a kibitzer feels there is a game that should be in the database and it isn't there, shadowmaster is correct use the PGN upload facility. The only gripe I have is that it sometimes takes a while for a game to be loaded up from the time it's sent in.
Jun-21-04  Hektor: This game is a fine example of what may happen when your opponent is not careful in his/her choice of pre-game mushrooms!
Jan-18-06  waddayaplay: I wonder why this game hasn't been deleted?
Premium Chessgames Member
  TheAlchemist: 1. Why should it be deleted? At least, it serves to your amusement. You can't say that about many other games.

2. Black's name is Casanova. If White is a woman... or even a man...

3. "Spanje" means "sleep" (noun) in my language.

Jan-20-06  waddayaplay: Well because chessgames boosts it only has games of quality.... "only the best games"...
Jan-20-06  Steppenwolf: It should be deleted if want to be seen as a serious database. This is worthless.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Sneaky: You could have a MUCH worse game than this one. At least Black took the piece!!!

Would you delete this game? <1.e4 e5 2.Qh5 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Qxf7# 1-0>

Chessbase not only has that gem but a few thousand other lookalike games. And get this...they even a game or two where 4.Qxf7# was overlooked and instead White went on to lose in the endgame.

Jan-20-06  EmperorAtahualpa: <Steppenwolf> Exactly BECAUSE this is a serious database this game is included.
Jan-20-06  EmperorAtahualpa: <3. "Spanje" means "sleep" (noun) in my language.>

<TheAlchemist> "Spanje" means "Spain" in Dutch, so I guess <> found this game through a Dutch (or perhaps Belgian or South African) source.

  TheAlchemist: <Emperor> That's better. Even though, I liked it as a "dream game". :-))
Jan-21-06  Steppenwolf: Thank Sneaky for stretching the point that a database may contain thousand of worthless games. This gem belongs to the lot.
Oct-27-07  patzerboy: This game made me laugh.
Keep it.
Oct-27-07  Nasruddin Hodja: <Steppenwolf>: Chill, dude. This database contains a 6-move loss by Anand as well as zero-move chess games from the Fischer-Spassky and Topalov-Kramnik matches. It doesn't seem fair that an otherwise worthless game in the database is "redeemed" by the name of the participant, while the peasants who play howler moves like 5. Bd3 here get their games deleted. N'est ce pas?
