|May-06-07|| ||CapablancaFan: I stopped looking at this game seriously after 2.Qh5. Obviously, Kasparov treated this guy with kid gloves.|
|May-06-07|| ||CapablancaRuyLopez: Trying to beat one of the best grandmasters with a scholars mate?LOL thats funny!|
|May-06-07|| ||Kleve: For the record, there is a picture of this game at the House of Staunton website... http://houseofstaunton.com/board5.h...|
I couldn't believe the picture when I saw it about a year ago... But apparently it's the real deal!
|May-06-07|| ||Chessmensch: Should have saved this one for next April Fool's Day.|
|May-06-07|| ||mikee: does anybody no if there are any other celebrity games in this database|
|May-06-07|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: <mikee> Check out this collection:|
Game Collection: Famous people's games
And I'm sure there are more games by celebrities to be found in the database than just these!
|May-06-07|| ||Benzol: <mikee> Another collection to have a look at is Game Collection: Games by Famous People|
|May-07-07|| ||kevin86: Could Kasparov have taken an Alekhine trip during this game?|
|May-17-07|| ||Helios727: <RookFile: Why did Kasparov play 6...h6?> Maybe he didn't want doubled pawns on the f-file.|
|Jul-26-07|| ||Morphyisgod: i didnt kno this opening had a name lol|
|Feb-09-08|| ||asiduodiego: Hahahahahaha!. Funny!. I prefer, anyway 3. ..., g6.|
|Feb-09-08|| ||Fourpointo: <<Why do we say "cheers!",when we drink booze?> In ye olden days, one would have given "three cheers to..." whoever had bought the latest round of drinks. It has become merely "cheers" over the years.>|
<<kevin86>, why do we say "cheers" before having a drink? Because it's shorter than saying "All in the family.">
It's a joke. (Booze, "boo"s; cheers, booze/boos; get it?)
|Feb-09-08|| ||sallom89: i seen a picture of Arnold playing against Kasparov(on his site i think, been a while), i wonder if that game is out to public :p|
|Mar-11-09|| ||Dredge Rivers: Woody plays like he's been smoking something!|
|Mar-14-09|| ||Augalv: <i didnt kno this opening had a name lol>|
LOL. Me neither. First game I've played over with this opening.
<Woody plays like he's been smoking something!>
I think he wanted to surprise Kasparov.
|Mar-23-09|| ||Dredge Rivers: <Augalv>
Oh, I'm sure Kasparov was surprised, all right! He was surprised at what a crappy player he was facing! :)
|Apr-27-09|| ||Dredge Rivers: Kasparov did to Woody what Woody does to papparazi. i.e. beat him like a drum!|
|Aug-02-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 2 Qh5, 3
|Jan-16-10|| ||rich187113: How the hell did he manage to draw with Kasparov??|
|Mar-16-10|| ||JohnstownChess: @ rich187113 he hadthe help of a grandmaster and Kasparov was taking it easy.|
|Feb-15-11|| ||Raisin Death Ray: I've never heard of either of them!:)|
|Apr-01-11|| ||jbtigerwolf: Having looked at just about every mainstream opening, at least for 1.e4, I really can't find anything to refute 2.Qh5. It looks terrible, but it doesn't appear to have any major drawbacks.|
What I am trying to say, is that I wouldn't recommend it to a beginner, but at the same time when facing it as Black I cannot refute it totally... it's not a loss; indeed, I feel under pressure to win after this.
|Oct-09-11|| ||FSR: Grandmaster Hans Ree called 2.Qh5 a "provocative but quite sensible move." http://www.chesscafe.com/text/hans1... In the same article, he noted that Vladimir Kramnik (!!) had prepared the opening for use against Kasparov in blitz games, and considered the position after 2.Qh5 Nc6 3.Bc4 g6 4.Qf3 Nf6 5.Ne2 equal. For more on the opening, see the Wikipedia article started and largely written by me, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parham....|
|Oct-20-13|| ||Bob Loblaw: Excellent article FSR but it could use more information on Parham.|
|May-01-14|| ||GumboGambit: Laugh if you must, but Woody was one move from checkmating Kasparov. There are a lot of GMs that cannot say that.|
