|Jun-27-05|| ||tayer: If what "Magouille chess magazine" (see <THE pawn> comment, and BRAVO Tartakower) is right, this shows a reason why I dont like generic rules about restricting the way GMs can agree on a draw, sometimes it may be something more important than the actual game (My main problem with those rules is that they wont work at all you can allways repeat position if you want and your oponent want a draw).|
|Jun-27-05|| ||Knight13: This is the best game ever! Now everyone can force a draw by playing 1. d4!! YAY! NOW There will be no one who wins or loses! (NOT!!!)|
(This game is ridiculous.)
Sorry about the comments I made above.
|Aug-07-05|| ||Blitz Chess: This game has something i have seen before, i now i have seen this before|
it looks like Kramnik style, yes, the drawing technique used here its marvellous, amazing drawish lines
It seems like Kramnik!ª!!!!!!!!
|Oct-04-05|| ||Kramnik Basher: I guess Kramnik must like this game a lot!!|
|Oct-04-05|| ||tiburon92: karpov & leko did this too|
|Oct-04-05|| ||paladin at large: The anecdote reported by THE pawn is significant. Tartakower was both a spirited and gentlemanly player. Can anyone in possession of any book by or about Tartakower shed any further light?|
|Nov-04-05|| ||paragon: aw1988 - he's not talking about the opening, he's making fun of french people...|
i like the opening too... as white. ;)
|Jan-04-06|| ||Richard Taylor: Bah! Humbug - the fool moved! - See my comments on the Janosevic (?) -Geller game.|
|Jan-04-06|| ||Richard Taylor: <nikolaas: What a foolish game is this??? They should be ashamed! Was one of them sick or so??? (Sorry if I sound rude, but this kind of games makes me so angry! If you play like this, why would you play at all?)> Such a great game makes you angry!!!? This is an extraordinary fascinating game... B|
ut see my deep comments on Jonosevic-Geller -the greatest game ever played by man or machine...
|Mar-29-06|| ||Topzilla: Kramnik may have checked this game im sure.|
|Apr-16-06|| ||IMDONE4: This game was exactly like the game I played last week!|
|May-27-06|| ||blingice: <bronx27: This is SO SAD !!! This takes away from the Beautiful Game of CHESS !! It's a DISGRACE that ANY GM draw a game after the very FIRST Move !!>|
OH my GOOOOD, we should ALL just QUIT, shouldn't we?!!!!?!
|Jun-15-06|| ||Castle In The Sky: It is apparent from the move that both sides are completely without hope of further progression.|
|Aug-29-06|| ||awfulhangover: This is so funny. I love it. Next time I will resign as black in this position. What do you think of that?|
|Sep-05-06|| ||hidude: d4!! Wow!!!|
|Oct-25-06|| ||rsl: 1. d4!! I don't think anything could have stopped this move. Black was lucky to draw!|
|Jun-04-08|| ||centercounter: <THE pawn: Magouille chess magazine says: |
''At that time, Kramer was at the edge of dying, he had caught a terrible desease that caused him much pain. He contracted this illness during a trip to the Bolivia to promote Chess to bolivian children. Tartakower started the game by moving the queen pawn in d4, his strongest opening. Kramer thought for a while, then tried to move the piece, but he was so weak that he couldn't even move a pawn. He then vomited on the board and Tartakower replied: How about a draw, no?''>
If this is true, then it shows a gentlemanly side of Tartakower. Perhaps he even knew of how his adversary contracted his illness and did not want to insult the nobility of Kramer's actions by taking a cheap win.
So far, my limit has been to offer a "respect" draw to someone who kept nodding off (an elderly gentleman who was very successful 30 years ago). I'd like to think I'd offer in Tartakower's position, as I'd like to think any decent person would. Sadly, I cannot promise this of myself or others of this rather selfish generation.
|Mar-14-09|| ||Dredge Rivers: This is truly an amazing game, because Tartakower had such lousy luck with guys named Adolf!|
|Apr-11-09|| ||WhiteRook48: usually 1. d4 is drawish, and 1. e4 is losing.|

Should Kramer's response be called the "Puke Defence"?
|Aug-22-09|| ||whiteshark: <At that time, Kramer was at the edge of dying...> Actually, he died Jan-10-1934, which was a few years later.|
|Dec-01-10|| ||Tigranny: How does this draw?|
|Apr-11-12|| ||RodeOrm: To be honest with you guys, even if im no Tartakower i would probablly also offer a draw, (and be glad for it) cant be much fun shuffle around the pieces in that mess, not mentioning the smell...anyway, funny little curiosa by The pawn about what might have been the shortest draw ever played by a GM.|
|Apr-11-12|| ||john2629: this act was an act of a gentleman and offers to chess much more nobility than play mindlessly for win.
Thats why i disagree with a rule "number" of moves to make a draw acceptable from the arbiters.|
|Sep-08-13|| ||yesnomaybeidontknow: This game is unnecessarily protracted. I prefer the following, which has a Zen Buddhist calm about it:
Janosevic vs Geller, 1968|
