|Jan-06-04|| ||Dick Brain: Gedult went 12-0 in this collection and his longest game is 18 moves. What's his secret? |
|Jan-06-04|| ||Bears092: only submitting the games he wins in under 20 moves. |
|Jan-07-04|| ||chessgames.com: We updated his game collection, and now it's even more striking! Apparently he played a lot of 'coffeehouse chess' and many of his miniatures have ended up in print, ergo in databases.|
I found this on the web:
<In his column in The Illustrated London News, Baruch H. Wood, International Arbiter and founder of the British periodical Chess, once wrote about David Gedult:
"Gedult was a soldier. Wherever he went, he sought out the chess players and, I believe, never departed happy from any town, big or small, without vanquishing all the local cracks. His chess was perfected and polished in the fire of keen practice against all comers... His wit, rather like his chess and probably his sword, had been whetted on granite."
At the end of the column Wood presented a couple of Gedult's miniatures, and concluded: "Coffeehouse chess? If so, then coffeehouse chess superb!">
|Jan-07-04|| ||Lawrence: Take out Bill Wall's few losses and he's even more impressive than David Gedult. |
|Feb-17-04|| ||Honza Cervenka: Another Gedult's game is this one:
1.d4 Nf6 2.f3 d5 3.e4 dxe4 4.Nc3 exf3 5.Qxf3 c6 6.Be3 Bg4 7.Qf2 e6 8.h3 Bh5 9.g4 Bg6 10.0-0-0 Bd6 11.Nf3 Nd5 12.Nxd5 cxd5 13.Bb5+ Nc6 14.h4 h6 5.h5 Bh7 16.Ne5 Bxe5 17.dxe5 Qc7 18.Bd4 0-0 19.Bxc6 Qxc6 20.g5 Rac8 21.Bc3 hxg5 22.h6 Qa4 23.hxg7 Rfd8 24.Rxh7 Qf4+ 25.Qxf4 gxf4 26.Rh4 Kxg7 27.Bb4 f5 28.Rg1+ Kf7 29.Rh7+ 1-0
|Apr-16-04|| ||InspiredByMorphy: This is a very overlooked chess player!
One of the only to believe in the Gedult's/Hammerschlag
opening 1.f3. Not to mention he has a smoking record with no
losses and likes the kings gambit. Right on Gedult!
|Aug-03-04|| ||resty: I start to admire him. |
|Aug-03-04|| ||siggemannen: chessgames.com, games 15 and 18 are the same games |
|Aug-05-04|| ||siggemannen: <chessgames.com> I mean, check out games 15 and 18, it's the same game |
|Aug-05-04|| ||acirce: <siggemannen> The move order is different. |
|Aug-05-04|| ||PivotalAnorak: Seriously. Chessgames.com, show us some striking losses from this guy, PLEASE ! If he had never lost a single game, he would have been world champion ! I'd really like to see these little "systems" at work against some serious opposition. What do we see here ? Some woodpushers getting crushed... Laughable. |
|Aug-05-04|| ||siggemannen: <acirce>, you are right. well, that guy must have been a patzer to allow the same finish, just like myself. |
|Aug-05-04|| ||acirce: <siggemannen> Well, the game was only played once of course, or at least I assume it... but it has been uploaded in at least one false version. Now chessgames.com doesn't want to remove such duplicates unless they are sure that it is the correct version that is left on the site. This is a sound policy imo. |
|Aug-05-04|| ||poktirity: My little sister has never lost a single game either and she is not world champion... ;) |
|Aug-06-04|| ||siggemannen: <acirce>, it's funny how much crap you have to stand because you like kramnik. I must tell you, he's my favorite player too, because he plays the chess that is the best chess for him, not for everybody else |
|Aug-06-04|| ||acirce: Yes, it's amazing how much whining there is, when the Kramnik-Leko match starts I suspect it's going to be unbearable.. |
|Dec-20-05|| ||DeepBlade: Did this guy invented the Gedult's Opening (1.d3)?
I play this opening against relative beginners (ELO 900-1000) with Fried Fox/Hammerschlag setup, 1.d3 2.Kd2
|Dec-20-05|| ||TheAlchemist: <DeepBlade> Not quite. Gedult's Opening is 1.f3. 1.d3 is the Mieses Opening, as far as I know.|
|Dec-20-05|| ||DeepBlade: <TheAlchemist> True,I messed up
1.f3 is Gedult's Opening
1.f3 2.Kf2 is the Hammerslag/Fried Fox opening. Thanks for correcting me.
With his opening, I just move all my pieces off the 1st and 2nd rank. Regard it as an investment for gigantic center control ;)
|May-08-06|| ||elahevad: He's played the Blackmar Diemer a good bit as white, I've seen many more of his games than represented here. HEYA CHESSGAMES, how about you find a way to identify the Blackmar Diemer Gambit other than "Queen's Pawn Game". I'm sure it has it's own eco if you look hard enough....|
|May-23-06|| ||DeepBlade: Gedult means ''patience'' in Dutch, and thats a prequisite if you want to play 1.f3!|
Openings like this really test your chess skills. It sharpens your senses, you concentrate on good lines, because your opponent has already begun conducting an attack! A real hustler's opening.
(also its very fun to mess around with 1200 rated players...)
|Jan-07-07|| ||Benzol: Good record but just how strong was he?|
|Jul-06-07|| ||whiteshark: I once read all of his games were rapid games with 15 mins.
So, really worth studying.

A truly interesting page in french about Gedult. Enjoy!
