|Nov-19-04|| ||Knight13: <DevastioN> Okay okay... That's still unbelievable. Would you play chess for 94 years? Is it possible for you to play chess even when you are very very old? No, right? So I think it is unbelievable. :) |
|Nov-23-04|| ||beatgiant: <chessgames.com: Thanks. Well call them "allies.">|
Note that you have a couple of games by "Consultants" too.
|Nov-25-04|| ||ruylopez900: Knight13 - <Is it possible for you to play chess even when you are very very old? No, right?>|
Two words: Victor Korchnoi.
|Nov-25-04|| ||Benzol: You could add a few more - Mikhail Botvinnik, Emanuel Lasker, Joseph Henry Blackburne, Samuel Reshevsky and Vasily Smyslov all come to mind. |
|Nov-25-04|| ||OJC: < knight13 > Can't play when old? Only 94 years? Here's a story of a 102 year old beating a 5 year old. Check this out:|
Maybe Korchnoi has another 30 years left?
|Jul-05-05|| ||THE pawn: I do hope Korchnoi never gets really ill, so he can play for the rest of his life ( If he wishes...imagine, you're ~75 years old, you're f**ing tired of that damn game you've played all your life, and you learn that you have another healthy 30 years in front of you, and you have to play chess in order to win money....I would shoot myself you know!) Impressive play by the 102 years old player <OJC>.|

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:
