  Sneaky: Wow, this is the Dream-Team for blindfold chess!
Dec-27-05  chesscrazy: <Sneaky> Even though they lost because of a knight fork? (Well, it was tandem...oh well)
Dec-27-05  GoldenKnight: I remember Koltanowski talking about this. He said that Alekhine wanted to go on tour with him a second time, but he refused because of divergences in ideas during play. (I forget exactly how Koltanowski put it, and, though he didn't say so, I had the disctinct impression that Alekhine would get angry if Koltanowski didn't play as Alekhine thought he should.

  offramp: Alekhine & Koltanowski are talking.

Alekhine: We are the blindfold dream team, Kolty! We will demolish them, annihilate them. Player after player. Team after team. Village after village.


Alekhine: Did they say why, Kolty, why they want to terminate my command?

Kolty: I was sent on a classified mission, sir.

Alekhine: It's no longer classified, is it? Did they tell you?

Kolty: They told me that you had gone totally insane, and that your methods were unsound.

Alekhine: Are my methods unsound?

Kolty: I don't see any method at all, sir...

Dec-27-05  WMD: Some sort of Apocalypse Now skit?
Apr-30-08  Funicular: dude, the year was 1934, and the 3 games they won, they won them in 34 moves

now what do you call that?
