  whiteshark: Quote of the Day

< Anyone can hang a piece, but a good blunder requires thought. <>>

--- Tim Krabbe

  wordfunph: from NIC Yearbook #78..

<Tim Krabbe once played 1.Na3 in a club match against the Amsterdam police sports club. When his board 1 opponent unperturbedly replied 1...Nf6, Tim reconsidered his decision and directed the knight back home again: 2.Nb1


click for larger view

When questioned by one of his teammates why he acted like this, he responded: "On second thoughts I did not like the position of the knight on the edge!">

  Chnebelgrind: nice collection on Krabbes website

http://timkr.home.xs4all.nl/chess/
"the 110 most fantastic moves ever played"

There is a pawn missing at square d5 in diagramm 43 (Zeitlin - Monin) (beginning with the shown position 23. Qxf3 would checkmate)

  MissScarlett: < Feldgrau: In 2000, Tim Krabbe penned a piece for Chesscafe.com, titled <Regicide>, documenting the number of defeats suffered by reigning world champions from Steinitz to Kasparov.

<As said, I only count games that the world champions lost while holding the title, and only serious games: rapid, blitz, exhibition, computer, consultation, correspondence, cable and Internet games are not included in my number. I also don't count games that were played in matches and tournaments for the world championship. The throne must somehow be seen as vacant during such competitions...>

The article no longer resides in the ChessCafe archives, but Google locates a copy: www.irlchess.com/puzzles/krabbe09.pdf

Krabbe's results are:

<Steinitz (1886/1894): 0

Lasker (1894/1921): 17

Capablanca (1921/1927): 3

Alekhine (1927/1935 and 1937/1946): 21

Euwe (1935/1937): 7

Botvinnik (1948/1957, 1958/1960 and 1961/1963): 15

Smyslov (1957/1958): 1

Tal (1960/1961): 1

Petrosian (1963/1969): 18

Spassky (1969/1972): 3

Fischer (1972/1975): 0

Karpov (1975/1985) 23

Kasparov (1985/2000) 27>

Following the classical line and Krabbe's criterion, Kramnik was the 14th world champion from his victory over Kasparov in London to the start of the 2007 world championship tournament in Mexico City. Anand has been champion since the end of that event.

Now...I'm going to ask someone else to do all the work in calculating their respective numbers. Good luck!>

Consider it done!

That's Magnus's ninth loss of the year, equalling Kramnik''s 2005 record (see above). Magnus has the rest of this event (assuming he appears again), the London Chess Classic and the Qatar Masters Open to extend the record to dizzying new heights.
