Nov-14-03  PinkPanther: This looks like a bullet game I would play on the ICC.
Dec-09-03  stinkymagoo: 7 moves against Anand- I think that NN did better than I would have... ;D
Dec-09-03  Drstrangelove: Naw, I have full faith in myself to make it at least 9 moves if I was playing Anand. Anymore then that though… well I’d be flattering myself.
Mar-03-04  Whitehat1963: Seems as though with the really great players, there is ALWAYS a mate threat just a move or two away. Can you imagine playing someone like Anand on a daily basis and having him beat you every time in about 20 or fewer moves, and always seemingly out of nowhere?
Mar-03-04  Shadout Mapes: that would suck
Mar-03-04  vishyanand: By the way, doesn't anyone know who NN is? I mean he must be someone we all know if he payed Anand in '93. Maybe he's some president who wishes to remain anonymous for privacy reasons :)
Apr-05-04  N N: This was probably because of the touch move rule... hard to remember when your 414 years old!
Jul-17-04  Calchexas: I'd probably last 15 moves against Anand, till I was out of my opening book. Then...maybe 2 more moves.
Aug-27-04  Backward Development: NN plays sicilian v.s. Anand.
just asking for trouble.
Aug-24-05  alexandrovm: ups, another fast checkmate at the opening.
Aug-24-05  jamesmaskell: Thats such a funny game. That guy did not expect that white response to the Sicilian. I would have been shocked too. But six moves...poor guy! Anand probably had Nf6 in mind and was waiting for him to try and release his Kingside bishop.

Does anybody know how many people were in this simul? He would have had plenty of time to think you'd

  Peligroso Patzer: <Sneaky: ...g6??? LOL!!!

Poor NN... there must be a curse on him or something.>

Sneaky, I think you are a few "?" short on your annotation of Black's 6th move in this game.

As far as NN's chess career is concerned, he is the quintessential chessplayer, having known the full range of glorious triumph and ignominious defeat to which devotees of Caissa are subject. In his better moments, NN has claimed victories over Philidor ( Philidor vs NN, 1790 ) and Alekhine ( Alekhine vs NN, 1925 ). So, I don't know whether NN is cursed, but to have achieved sufficient longevity (and NN is still around) to have faced both Philidor and Alekhine, I suspect he may have struck some sort of deal with the devil.

  Peligroso Patzer: For the record, here is the earliest game by NN in the database, an ignominious defeat in a late sixteenth century miniature: Busnardo vs NN, 1590

  FSR: Note that Anand himself once lost a shorter game: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Nxe5 d6 4.Nf3 Nxe4 5.Nc3 Bf5?? 6.Qe2 1-0. He was following a game between Miles and Christiansen I think, not realizing that it was a prearranged draw.
May-29-07  scholes: nn must had spent 1000 's or rupees to play anand in simulation.Then he would have prepared the most popular opening only to get mated on 7th move .
Jun-13-08  tonsillolith: "Anandymous Victory"
Jan-18-09  WhiteRook48: 6...g6?? that was the last thing NN needed to play.
May-02-11  IRONCASTLEVINAY: White to play 7. ... (monday puzzle) probably tuesday.

  WannaBe: Gotta be the best pun/prediction. But the game's tied in the 9th 6-6 in rain...

  Phony Benoni: Generally, I don't think these super-short games should be used as GOTDs. If there is some interesting story or unusual event, perhaps. But this is simply sheer -- and I hate to say it, but there's is no other word -- stupidity.

assume the pun is supposed to be "Indians in Seven". We'll see if it should have been saved for April Fools Day.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: And if the Cleveland Indians professional baseball team should win the 7th game 7-6, CG shall have uncorked the finest sports prediction in the website's history. But the Cubs just scored, so Cleveland will have to score at least 8.
Nov-03-16  gauer: Huh?! Don't neither of R Beer vs Grob, 1966 (10˘ Bear Night) nor H Korhonen vs K Pulkkinen, 1984 (Disco Demolition night with Harry Caray) work nearly as well as this candid pun?!

My dad's brothers are all split on who should win after all of their pennant deficit years? But me, I'll stay loyal again with Toronto, much as in all my other years in growing up in the GTA with their team that developed from this area's local generation. Not sure how much it would take to root for either of our other neighbours at the other side of the pond, but let's hope it dries up soon...

Premium Chessgames Member It's unconventional but today we have two games of the day. Our second game, with best wishes to User: cu8sfan, is J F Cubas vs D Mastrovasilis, 2014.
Nov-07-16  gareeb: GOTD ..?!

You're correct. That's the last move he would play as well.
