What an interesting link that was. I'm always amazed by human prowess and that was such a case!
chess is a fun game to play and i guess i will have more time to play when i'm retired...
|Jul-05-05|| ||Montreal1666: <rochade18:> <"Beratende" is not a chess player, but a German word. Something like consultation, advisory partners, I can't give a better explanation.>|
Where do you see the word "Beratende" here?
<Thanks. Well call them "allies.">
You call what Allies?
Can someone explain in clear terms what does the player named "Allies" represent?
|Jul-05-05|| ||Darklight: <Can someone explain in clear terms what does the player named "Allies" represent?>
a team of players|
|Aug-07-05|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: Its funny that "allies" never managed to draw in 38 games ...|
|Nov-23-05|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: With the new game added to the database, it looks like <Knight13> was right after all.....106 years!|
|Dec-02-06|| ||gauer: chessgames: are these guys the same player as this guy below: http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches... ?|
|Dec-02-06|| ||Karpova: A great chessplayer but virtually forgotten nowadays. The proof: His best game is not even included in the database.
It was against Axis, a strong european player...|
|Dec-02-06|| ||technical draw: <Karpova> Axis was a team composed of European and Asian players.|
|Dec-04-06|| ||Eyal: <technical draw> Allies was a team too - joined in the middlegame by a strong Russian player (who helped Axis in the opening).|
|Dec-04-06|| ||Archives: Im sorry guys, but I'm finding it hard to read in between the lines here.|
|Dec-04-06|| ||arifattar: <Allies was a team too> with the American players joining in later.|
|Dec-04-06|| ||keypusher: ...tip the veal, try the waitresses. I'm here all week.|
|Sep-25-08|| ||Katu: 111 years in the world of chess with a 7% total efficiency? He should have retired long ago LOL.|
|Nov-24-08|| ||Phony Benoni: Only three wins, but two are against Marshall and Lasker. That has to count for something.|
Many of the losses appear to be from simuls, but we all know that when great players give simuls, only their losses get published. And just look at some of the masters they allowed to play!
In addition, they have a perfect record against NN, which definitely puts them in the caliber of Greco, at least.
|Feb-28-09|| ||YoungEd: How would the Allies do against the Axis?|
|Mar-04-09|| ||WhiteRook48: <Allies> vs <Axis>
1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3 Bb5+ Bd7 4 Bxd7+ Nxd7 5 g3 cxd4 6 Nxd4 a6|
|Apr-22-10|| ||GrahamClayton: Are Allied teams allowed in modern simultaneous exhibitions? It seems that this was the case pre-World War 2, according to the games in the database.|
|Nov-29-11|| ||Penguincw: Well at least Allies did better than NN.|
|Apr-05-12|| ||Phony Benoni: The <Allies> ponder their next move:|
Evidently, the officials were not amused:
|Dec-10-17|| ||offramp: Can someone give me a simple explanation of how Allies play a game of chess?|
The way I see it, there is one board with one player on one side of the board and two on the other.
The Allies talk to each other aloud, saying things like, "Let's play the Sicilian because I know he hates that," and "If we play ...Rxh5 he might miss the mate in 2" and "We have to pray he doesn't play Qg2 because we'll have to resign after that."
Of course the Allies have the advantage of being able to analyse twice as deep as the opponent: "Let's analyse Bxh2, you memorise the white moves and I'll analyse the black moves... GO!"
If talking is not feasible, for example if an opera is in progress, then I suppose the players use hand signals or written notes.
Does anyone know the full procedure?
|Dec-10-17|| ||Magpye: Yes. Separate rooms.
Sometimes consulting teams of players play against another team of players. If those are four man teams, you would have eight roosters all trying to crow over the others.
|Dec-10-17|| ||offramp: <Magpye: Yes. Separate rooms.>|
Here is a picture of a consultation game in progress. At least in this case they are in one room.
|Dec-11-17|| ||Magpye: is it a consultation game, or are they analyzing a game together?|
|Dec-12-17|| ||offramp: Riiight. So has anyone got any sensible ideas about how Allies played a consultation game?|
