Poor NN... there must be a curse on him or something.
|Aug-11-03|| ||pkspks: i think this was played in a simul so it might of been a low rated player like 900 or somthing. well i hope he learned his lesson. |
|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 imagine...no?

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.
|Nov-22-06|| ||Peligroso Patzer: For the record, here is the earliest game by NN in the CG.com database, an ignominious defeat in a late sixteenth century miniature: Busnardo vs NN, 1590|
|May-29-07|| ||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.|
