|Aug-07-22|| ||Sally Simpson: Well I'm glad we all agree that Bobby Fischer was not using computer assistance when he won the USA Ch. 11-0.|
With cheating paranoia at an all time peak please rest assured Metro that ‘D.’ will have been searched, scanned, examined by doctors and dentists, hypnotized, x-rayed and for good measure dipped in the Ganges.
The lad is playing the better games of chess. It happens from time to time, a player goes on a wild run and because it defies rating expectation the number fanatics are baffled and come up with
all kinds of excuses as to why the numbers failed. (the keyword is’ expectation’ – not 100% fact.)
I wonder how your ‘must be cheating table’ would have reacted to; Banja Luka (1979) the winner of that event never had a rating.
Or here: GLC Chess Challenge (1986) where the 2nd lowest rated IM won an all play all tournament containg 12 GM’s
|Aug-07-22|| ||Teyss: Hi Sally, 👍 Kasparov 🤔 ... Does ring a bell. Apparently he became a politician later on.|
<It appears some killjoy arbiter stepped in and declared the game void because they were messing about, it is scored as 0-0> That's a funny one, never seen a 0-0 game before. Obviously these fellows wanted to draw asap and since it's not allowed before move 30, went for threefold without being subtle about it. Not very smart, there are plenty of openings where it's possible. The arbiter probably thought they agreed beforehand, somewhat like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disgr...
On another topic, note the organisers' effort to avoid another shortpantsgate or similar: "Regulations - Dress code - With your help, we’re looking forward to making this Olympiad not only the biggest in numbers but also the most elegant. We are happy to announce that the most stylish teams wearing the best uniforms will get special awards."
|Aug-07-22|| ||moronovich: <That's a funny one, never seen a 0-0 game before.>|
Well, there once was an Anand- Svidler game, which ended 0-0.As Svidler was a gentleman and allowed Anand to give mate as he castled short.0-0.
I think wife and yours truly also have had a few clashes with the same result ;)
|Aug-07-22|| ||perfidious: Believe there was actually a game in one of Fischer's US title wins which was scored a double forfeit.|
As to a game ending with castling and resignation, I booked a win that way as Black in a King's Gambit in the 1980s.
|Aug-07-22|| ||fabelhaft: Drawmaraju Gukesh|
|Aug-07-22|| ||Sally Simpson: There have been a few 0-0...sorry nil-nil results. |

It is the famous 13 move stalemate. The players were Elisabeth Paehtz,and Raj Tischbierek, Berlin 2009.
I do not know if this double defaulted (the game is not here.) but I know of similar joke games that have been nil-nil.
The Paehtz - Tischbierek game is here (we should have it)
|Aug-07-22|| ||Teyss: <moronovich> LOL on both points.|
For memo the game is Anand vs Svidler, 1999. Reminiscent of a classic: Morphy vs A Morphy, 1850
As for clashes you'll have to explain how you manage because ours generally end 1-0 at my expense.
|Aug-07-22|| ||perfidious: <Geoff>, I had to check to see whether there was even a game which also began 1.d4 d6 2.Qd2 here: to my surprise, there was already a game identical to Paehtz-Tischbierek in this DB: Bennett Schnabel vs R Schnabel, 2019.|
|Aug-07-22|| ||moronovich: <As for clashes you'll have to explain how you manage because mine generally end 1-0 at my expense.>|
Well that is a heck of a question, so here is a few tips from an oldtimer.
1: Play a little stupid, eventually paired with hearingproblems.
2. Invite her to a dance and tell her how wonderfull she is.
3. Simulate there is a burglar in the garden.
4. Take a little walk round the house.
5. Tell here there is always a slight chance she may be right about something.
6. Call it a draw.
7.Listen carefully to what she says, despite the whole fort is shaking.
8. Victory is when peace settles.
Cheers ! Et bonne chance....
p.s. Some of them work better than others ;)
|Aug-07-22|| ||Gypsy: Ouch: Americans are playing as if they were members of the current administration. |
More seriously: Great on paper, but all out of form? (Ok, So is holding his standard, more or less. But the rest!?)
|Aug-07-22|| ||nok: Gukesh knows he was found out on CG and didn't dare to cheat against Fathead.|
|Aug-07-22|| ||Sally Simpson: Hi Perfidious,
A good find. They really should be double defaulted as there was obviously pre-game chit-chat going on but often they are last round games with no hope of a prize and the players want to catch a train home and nobody really cared.
In the old days long before electronic boards these joke games were written down on two score sheets in the canteen before the game and placed in the PGN box before the last round had began!
Of course others have tried to compose a brilliancy between them to pick up and split the brilliancy prize. This must have has worked sometime n the past on a few occasions. I know of a few 'iffy' ones.
And I know of one lad who won a genuine brilliancy prize in one tournament and entered it for the brillo prize in a later tournament as well. All he did was change his opponents name and the date. (his nerve failed him and he later withdrew it. I was wanting him to leave it in to see what happens. )
|Aug-07-22|| ||Sally Simpson: Hi Nok,
I thought Nepo was 'Fat Head.'
It all gets rather confusing. Calsen is Justin, Nepo I thought was 'Fat Head' and the h-pawn is 'Harry.'
Is it just the white h-pawn that is called 'Harry' or can the Black h-pawn be 'Harry as well. If not why not?
|Aug-07-22|| ||PhilFeeley: Can anyone explain to me the various TB codes? I know TB1 is match points and TB3 is game points, so what are TB2 and TB4?|
|Aug-07-22|| ||stone free or die: <PhilF> I think this link might provide some technical details about the tb's (maybe too technical):|
It in turn refers this ChessBase article, which might be a better starting point:
(I realize not a direct answer to your question though...)
|Aug-07-22|| ||Olavi: <PhilFeeley> From the FIDE handbook, TB1-TB3 = TB2-TB4:|
TB1 – sum of ISi of the opponents the team was paired with (even if the match was not played); excluding the
opponent that scored the lowest number of adjusted match points, or the round. If the team is not paired for a round, or
has a forfeit loss, or has a pairing-allocated bye, then this round shall be used as the cut. If there is a tie for the lowest
number of adjusted match points, then the lowest ISi among the tied teams shall be used as the cut.
Each ISi is determined as GPi x AMPi,
GPi is the number of game points scored in a match against opponent “i”,
AMPi is the adjusted number of match points of opponent “i” after the application of Article IV.
TB2 – number of game points scored
TB3 – sum of the adjusted match points of the opponents the team was paired with (even if the match was not played);
excluding the opponent that scored the lowest number of adjusted match points.
|Aug-07-22|| ||PhilFeeley: <stone free or die> Thanks anyway. That will help.|
|Aug-07-22|| ||PhilFeeley: <Olavi> Wow. No wonder I can't figure them out. Thanks.|
|Aug-07-22|| ||Olavi: <PhilFeeley> Sorry, I left Article IV out:|
Score Adjustments in Tie-Break Calculations
AMP = FMP + UR
GP = Game points scored (no adjustment)
IS = AMP x GP
AMP (adjusted match points) is the adjusted number of match points scored by the team,
FMP (final match points) is the final number of match points scored by the team (i.e. the score in the standings),
UR (unpaired rounds) is the number of rounds in which the team is not paired after the last round in which it was
included in the pairings. Receiving a pairing-allocated bye counts as “included in the pairings.”
|Aug-07-22|| ||Atterdag: <metatron2>
<metatron2: <Atterdag>, I'm <not> accusing Gukesh in anything, and I'm certainly not on a "wild goose chase".
I am suspicious though, as I'm always when things seems too strange.>
I have to confess that I see this (and your two longs posts) as a self contradiction, but you know better, I'm sure.
|Aug-07-22|| ||Olavi: But basically TB2 is simply that if you tie Belgium 2-2, you receive 2 x Belgium's match points over the Olympiad. And then the sum of all 11 opponents.|
|Aug-07-22|| ||Teyss: A shame Gukesh's transmitter was out of order for his game against Mamedyarov. One side was proposing an exchange, duly accepted by the other... and then reversed.|
Probably Gukesh didn't want to push his luck (one needs some to achieve that performance, even with talent) and Mamedyarov with Black, having a decent tournament (+3 =2, off 3 games) didn't want to test how lucky the kid is. They passed the 30 move mark, fiddled for a few extra moves to be polite and then focused on their next pairings against Uzbekistan and Armenia, no less.
Can't blame them, only three rounds left and the results of the first ten teams are very close.
|Aug-07-22|| ||Sally Simpson: 'TB1' has been and always will be 'Thunderbirds One.' Scott, the pilot calls it 'TB1' in the episode "Pit of Peril" first aired in 1965.|
Have you seen this vid from the event and head scanning before the games.
What are they scanning for inside a head.
|Aug-07-22|| ||MissScarlett: I realised the final round on Tuesday would be starting early to incorporate the closing ceremony, but not 5 hours early! Watching chess at 5.30 am is inhuman.|
|Aug-07-22|| ||Atterdag: Thanks for the link, Geoff.
I thought this was a prank and that someone would step in and tell the players they were in a hidden camera show. That can't be the new reality in tournaments, can it?
