|Jul-31-09|| ||YoungEd: Oh, my, Darling!|
|Oct-10-09|| ||Cercatore: no sense|
|Apr-27-10|| ||rapidcitychess: Who's the <Wood>pusher here?|
|May-02-10|| ||cjgone: Needs to be a chess game of the day.|
|Nov-02-10|| ||Tigranny: I've never seen a Fool's Mate in a game like this before.|
|Feb-16-11|| ||Knightrider655321: stupid move come on f4????????????|
|Mar-05-11|| ||Lil Swine: oh yeah, my alekhine number's a little off track.|
|Mar-26-11|| ||redorc19: wow... almost all on this page deserve to get ignored on my profile for wasting time kibitzing here... then again, I am kibitzing about others kibitzing, so... never mind!!!|
|Mar-27-11|| ||ForeverYoung: Lance is a player to be reckoned with. I haven't seen him for a number of years. Mr. Wood? Unfortunately he passed away a few years back. Way too young. He was a strong player in is own right.|
|Apr-11-11|| ||technical draw: The white player's name is not Lance Darling. After foolishly losing this game he turned to his wife and said, "Lance, darling". The rest is just urban legend.|
|Nov-29-11|| ||GrahamClayton: <whiskeyrebel>this game looks like a hoax blindly reprinted probably from "northwest chess" magazine.|
The Idaho Chess Quarterly for October 1957 states that the game was published in "Chess World", December 1951, with the players being Kemp v Watts.
|Nov-29-11|| ||Phony Benoni: No doubt this "game" has actually happened, but this version is almost surely a joke. As I mentioned earlier, I played Lance Darling around this time; he was rated 1965, and obviously would not have fallen for this through ignorance. |
"NWC April" undoubtedly means the April issue of Northwest Chess magazine, and we all know what happens in April. I seem to remember Darling being from Oregon, so he probably knew what was going on.
Of course, I also remember he had a very attractive girl friend who sat next to him during our game. She probably distracted me more than him, but you never know...
|Jan-03-12|| ||King Death: <chesthinker: what is deep rybka's 20-ply eval after 2.f4>|
Yeah, and how long does the engine take for its eval?
|Jun-13-12|| ||Desukaan: Lance darling, you are the worst chess player ever.|
|Sep-05-12|| ||wildrookie: Wow! Wood plays deeeeep chess indeed.|
|Sep-12-12|| ||The Last Straw: You're lucky,<Phony Benoni>, to have met this guy. If you somehow meet him again, ask him to narrate this game :-) .|
|Sep-12-12|| ||The Last Straw: Note: Please don't tease Lance, other kibitzers.|
|Sep-12-12|| ||Shams: <"NWC April" undoubtedly means the April issue of Northwest Chess magazine, and we all know what happens in April.>|
As an on-again, off-again subscriber I can vouch that Northwest Chess does indeed go in for April 1 silliness.
|Jul-05-13|| ||fgh: 2. f4?! is a dubious move. Better is 2. f3! with compensation for the exposed king.|
|Jan-13-14|| ||perfidious: <fgh: 2. f4?! is a dubious move. Better is 2. f3! with compensation for the exposed king.>|
Finally, a ray of enlightenment in this opening. It always got old, studying the latest developments in the King's Indian or QGD.
|Nov-28-14|| ||paavoh: Back in high school in the 70s, I managed to win such a casual speed game between the classes. My opponent was known for his hyper-aggressive style and he begun with 1.f4. |
I was known for playing always the French or QGD and responded here with 1.-e6 too. My opponent said "More attack" and pushed 2.g4. I replied: "That's a good idea" and ended the game with 2.- Qh4#.
|Dec-23-14|| ||Domdaniel: <paavoh> I had the same experience in a school game in the 70s. As I remember, my opponent was trying different pawn pushes in each game... so I waited patiently for g4/f4 to turn up.|
|Jan-19-17|| ||Domdaniel: Draw number: I drew with Miles, who drew with Kasparov.|
Wins: I beat D.McMahon, who beat Keogh, who beat Stahlberg, who beat Nimzowitsch, which takes us back to the dark ages...
It's a silly game. Amusing, though.
|Aug-04-17|| ||Howard: This "game" also took place in a USCF tournament back in late 1977. CL&R quipped that this game was over with "before all the clocks were started".|
|Nov-01-18|| ||SpiritedReposte: Darling seems to have stolen my opening preparation here. |
After many hours of careful analysis I have concluded...black has the advantage.
