|Jun-05-09|| ||WhiteRook48: and also 1. d4 d5 2. Qd3?! Qd6??!! 3 Qf5?? Qf4???? 4 Qxc8#|
|Oct-07-09|| ||GrahamClayton: Pack should have been sent "packing" after this performance!|
|Dec-17-09|| ||Cercatore: somethingoriginal:
Sorry, why white don't take the queen? And after, why black don't take the queen? And after, why white don't take the queen? etc...
|Feb-12-10|| ||TheChessVids: I thought that this database was only supposed to include strong players.|
|Feb-18-10|| ||rich187113: Nice joke. But I have seen this before amonst patzers. Normally defend with Bd6.|
|Apr-01-11|| ||TheTamale: Black's play here is daring and innovative. To be sure, he incurs the risk that his opponent will spot the mate in 1, bringing things to a brutal end. On the other hand, if White misses the mate, Black has a devastating position... not a forced win, perhaps, but the kind of setup that chess players usually can only dream of: a dynamic, well-placed king and an entire arsenal of footsoldiers at the ready, crouching from their original squares, brimming over with potential energy, ready to spring with lethal force.|
I doubt I will incorporate this opening into my (highly successful) tournament play, but I'll bet I dust of more than a few patzers with it in blitz.
|Apr-01-11|| ||Once: The complete chess addict has this very odd game:
Lindemann-Echtermayer, Kiel, 1893:
1. e4 d5 2. exd5 Qxd5

And now white reaches for his queen's knight to play the perfectly natural 3. Nc3. But he accidentally touches his Bc1 instead. As we know, if you touch a piece you must move it. But at the time, if you touched a piece that cannot move you must instead play a move with your king.
This meant that white was forced to play 3. Ke2. And a delighted black followed this with 3...Qe4#

It is so very sad that the rules of chess have changed to prevent this sort of thing from happening again...
|Apr-01-11|| ||FSR: I started the Wikipedia article on the Parham Attack (1.e4 e5 2.Qh5!). At a tournament in Chicago, I once asked Bernard Parham himself what the worst response to his opening was. He nominated 2...Qh4, and was surprised when I showed him 2...Ke7(!!).|
|Apr-04-11|| ||keypusher: Black evidently didn't know about the powerful anti-Parham system beginning with 1....Nf6!.|
|Jun-24-11|| ||Winston Smith: I live close to Port Washington, NY and I have never noticed skittles there. Maybe M&Ms.|
|Jun-24-11|| ||TheFocus: In Japan they have green tea M&Ms. Very good.
In Hawaii, we got coconut M&Ms.
|Jun-25-11|| ||Eric Schiller: The player of the Black side went on to become a fine journalist bu never became a rated player. It was a real, if casual, game and I soon abandoned 2.Qh5 for the Ruy Lopez.|
|Jun-25-11|| ||FSR: <Eric Schiller: ... bu never became a rated player.>|
Yes he did! Bu Xiangzhi
|Oct-09-11|| ||Oceanlake: This game was played complete in a WW II game: Tojo versus Hitler (different names). Tojo took the e5 pawn and announced mate. With scorn, Hitler moved Ke7xe5 and pointed out that he would never allow a female such a privilege. Tojo resigned.|
|Oct-09-11|| ||Rook e2: 2.Qh5,Schiller: hey Howery Pack, I put a coin under your king! Howery: where? Schiller: touch-move!|
|Oct-09-11|| ||Oceanlake: P. L. Rothenberg penned the story for the December 1941 Chess Review.|
|Oct-10-11|| ||FSR: Howery Pack evidently works for the Dallas Morning News. http://www.spoke.com/info/pWwVzYO/H...|
|Jan-31-12|| ||rogl: I have actually played this game: 1.g4 e5 2.f3 h4#. To make things clear: I was black.|
|Feb-17-12|| ||Nemesistic: A 3 move chess game in this sites DB !!!
I'll learn more from Gizmo's efforts, i think i may upload one of mine for him to chew on, the bearded rascal lol
Seriously though chessgames.com, what purpose does this game serve being here, forgetting the name of one of the players involved!
|Apr-02-12|| ||rrrttt: Hey look your king has a magnet on it!|
|Aug-28-12|| ||FSR: Cf. L Palau vs S Kalabar, 1927.|
|Oct-09-12|| ||Abdel Irada: <rogl: I have actually played this game: 1.g4 e5 2.f3 h4#. To make things clear: I was black.>|
I think all of us have been on the black side of that game at least once.
But, although statistically some of us must also have been on the white side, I doubt we'll see anyone admit it.
|Oct-09-12|| ||JohnBoy: <Once: ...he accidentally touches his Bc1 instead...if you touched a piece that cannot move you must instead play a move with your king.> I once was reaching for a piece when my sleeve hit another piece and knocked it over. Both my opponent and I were 1500 newbs and I consented, moving the "touched" piece and promptly lost major material.|
Next time (if there is such) I will pull a Kasparov. The point of the rule is, of course, touch with intent.
|Oct-09-12|| ||Abdel Irada: Apropos of touch-move, this reminds me of an incident when I was in high school. We were playing qualifier matches to select members for our team for an upcoming interscholastic tournament, and I was two moves from mating one of my opponents when he complained that, ten moves before, I'd touched my rook before my king when castling.|
There was no faculty advisor on hand, so the matter was left to the club officers to decide. Unfortunately, none of them really understood the rules applying to this sort of situation, so they ultimately forced me to back up ten moves and move my rook instead of castling. This changed the position just enough that my opponent escaped with a perpetual check.
As it turned out, it didn't matter. My results were still good enough that I made the team. As for how I played on that team ... let's just say that it's not a good idea to play too many blitz games between rounds.
|Dec-31-12|| ||FSR: As I understand it, in Lindemann-Echtermayer White didn't just bump the bishop by accident. He actually played 3.Bc3.|
<Adbel Irada> Surely there is a "statute of limitations" for touch-move claims. You shouldn't get to see how the game develops and, if it develops badly for you, claim "touch-move" a zillion years after the fact.
