|Apr-21-08|| ||Petrosianic: This is a comment.
|Apr-21-08|| ||whiteshark: 12 out of 25 white moves were made by the ♔. That's 48%. A record ?|
|Apr-21-08|| ||keypusher: <Whiteshark> Not even close. 12/18 in this game:|
Hamppe vs Meitner, 1872
If anyone knows the record, it would probably be Tim Krabbe.
|Apr-21-08|| ||whiteshark: Thanks <keypusher>! How could I forget it? :D|
|Apr-21-08|| ||acirce: Exactly the game I came to think about when I saw this.|
|Apr-21-08|| ||cannibal: This game may look exciting, but actually it's more the sort of game one would expect if two opponents want to arrange a draw (and trick the Sofia rules).|
And that's why:
Mikhalchishin vs L Lenic, 2005
H Nordahl vs D Bojkov, 2005
Sure, there are some move transpositions, and in the other games no one went for the king walk in the end, but if you know these games (and I guess they both knew), there's nothing new here.
|Apr-21-08|| ||keypusher: W Potter vs NN, 1870|
That one is just 7/14 (black) moves with the king, but deserves a mention because White gave queen odds, and, so the story goes, announced mate after Black's sixth move. Thus the announced mate was longer than the game itself.
|Apr-21-08|| ||positionalgenius: Nice game here.|
