|Jan-06-09|| ||WhiteRook48: thanks for explaining the pun.
One thing I don't get about the game is why White would move his king 4 times in the opening. He should have let him stand on e1.
|Jan-09-09|| ||WhiteRook48: White has for sure messed it up with 7. Kd2.|
|Jan-10-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 23. Ne3?|
|Jan-19-09|| ||WhiteRook48: the final position looks messed-up.|
|Jan-22-09|| ||WhiteRook48: excellent king hunt|
|Jan-24-09|| ||WhiteRook48: supposedly Cochrane sued his opponent for winning|
|Feb-04-09|| ||WhiteRook48: he was Honored.
1. d5 seems better to me, because the knight will lose tempo:
1...Ne5 2. f4 Nf7
|Mar-16-09|| ||dwavechess: 17/27 concur with rybka 3 at 3 min. per move with rybka.abk book for Deschapelles|
|Mar-19-09|| ||WhiteRook48: a horrible loss|
|Jul-23-09|| ||Knight13: John Cochrane was supposedly a very strong player, but this game shows that in 1821 he probably wasn't.|
1. d5 is better, as it keeps the initiative.
|Sep-29-09|| ||Phony Benoni: Give that man a hand!|
|Dec-31-11|| ||Penguincw: 7.Kd2. Seriously? Another game with a king walk!|
|Dec-01-14|| ||welhelm1982: Maybe in that time kings do all work cuse i see king fighting alone hahaha|
|Aug-22-17|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: 1.f4 and 2.e5 gave away much of White's advantage, allowing the light square blockade that ALHLD exploited so well, almost like Nimzowitsch a century later.|
|Aug-22-17|| ||roninmb: Instead of ...27.Qa4+ I'd play 27.Nc4+ giving JC the opportunity to say : " I am so happy that my King is check-mated, otherwise I'd lose my Queen."|
|Aug-22-17|| ||Ratt Boy: Great game! Butt I prefer 27...♘xc4#.|
|Aug-22-17|| ||Sally Simpson: |

Instead of 22...Nd3 why not 22...a6 or 22....c6 either of which checkmate White on the very next move with b5.
|Aug-22-17|| ||catlover: It is almost painful to watch Cochrane's pieces in this game getting in each other's way, often sitting there helpless as the black queen and knights chase the king all the way to a5.|
|Aug-22-17|| ||WorstPlayerEver: Let's say White covered the dark squares well....|
The irony wants that each King move made White's position more desastrous.
But -obviously- 14... Ne3 is more funny.
|Aug-22-17|| ||WorstPlayerEver: And yes, Chesspatch, it's mate in 2 after 22... a6 23 (move x) b5#|
|Aug-22-17|| ||AlicesKnight: On the pun, there is a card play in Whist (and Bridge?) called "Deschapelles Coup". Perhaps the game would deserve this title.|
|Aug-22-17|| ||morfishine: "Deschapelles Show"?????????
Nothing to "show" here but a bunch of bad moves...
|Aug-23-17|| ||kevin86: Good chase, good mate.
Must be "black piece power week" Black has won a lot of the games. Good touch!
|Aug-23-17|| ||AylerKupp: My favorite story about games played with odds:|
Capablanca was in Paris and stopped at a chess cafe to have some coffee. A stranger approached him and, not recognizing him, asked him if he would like to play a game.
Capablanca agreed and they proceeded to set up the pieces. When they were done he took his queen off the board, indicating that he was giving the stranger queen odds.
The stranger was upset. "Hey!", he said in an irritated tone of voice, "Don't do that! You don't know me. I could beat you."
Capablanca: "If you could beat me, I would know you."
It probably never happened, but a good story nonetheless.
|Aug-23-17|| ||The Kings Domain: Gotta be amused by these odds games of yore and how they played out. Modern grandmasters should revive it - the results should be interesting.|
