Oct-03-04  aw1988: <rochade18: If Black tries 35...Qc5+ then Rg5> Join the club. I've sometimes suggested in a joint analysis that white drop a queen and not even realize it myself.
Nov-23-04  Whitehat1963: Player of the day takes his king for a walk. Who were these "consultants" anyway?
Nov-23-04  azaris: <Who were these "consultants"> Perhaps it was Arthur Andersen, the lost twin brother of Adolf Anderssen?
Jun-28-05  Gowe: Interesting king moves.

  vonKrolock: Somewhere in this site we discussed, some time ago, about the identity of a fictive player named 'Beratende' - this simply means 'Consultants' in German, or 'Allies', as preferred in English: 'Beratende' appears in a Dover Editions' version of Pachman's "Strategy" - well, again the mistake is repeated by a Chess author http://www.chesscafe.com/grivas/gri...
Nov-07-07  sallom89: very nice game.

  kevin86: This looks like a sequel to yesterday's game--My king goes a walkin'.

  Chessmensch: Some interesting stuff that might bear on this (and is worthwhile reading otherwise): http://www.chesshistory.com/winter/.... Still, Allies' record is awful.

  fm avari viraf: Usually, the King's role is in the end game but there are rare instances like this one Where the King marches on & plays a vital role in the foray.
Nov-07-07  RandomVisitor: Possible improvements:

10...Bg4, 13...Nc6, 16...Rxd4! , 22...Qd2, 24...Rf7, 26...h5, 29...Qd3+, with equality in each case (or a win in the case of 16...Rxd4).

Nov-07-07  RandomVisitor: After 16.Nd4?

16...Rxd4! 17.Rxd4 b5! 18.Qxb5 Nxd4 would have been winning for black.

  patzer2: White's 32. Rg3! deflects the Black Queen off the g-file and prepares 33. fxg6 with a decisive mate threat, after which the White King has to march from under pawn cover and survive a few spite checks.

Dec-22-08  WhiteRook48: These kings won't ally
Feb-20-09  fred lennox: To appreciate the brilliancy of this game just look at the position after move 27. Black king does not look seriously threatened. White's king does not look at all like a serious threat. Yet what follows proves otherwise. Such subtle harmony of pieces allows white to create a decisive attack with a simplicity worthy of Rubinstein.
Mar-06-09  WhiteRook48: who are these allies anyway

  Phony Benoni: Allies is the plural of NN.
Aug-20-11  bengalcat47: There is another famous king-walk game that was played by Anderssen in which the white king marches up the field to play a key role in trapping his black colleague. I can't recall this off hand, so if anyone knows which game it is please let me know. Thanks!

  Phony Benoni: <bengalcat47> Anderssen vs De Riviere, 1859.

A famous modern game with this theme is Short vs Timman, 1991.

Mar-18-13  solskytz: A remarkable game, which features in FM Amatzia Avni's first book, first published in Israel in 1989 - which was one of my first chess book (and one I bought, and then won in a competition three days later) - "Creative chess".

Recommended!! Many amazing and unusual gems of "playing outside the box"

  perfidious: <vonKrolock....'Beratende' appears in a Dover Editions' version of Pachman's "Strategy" - well, again the mistake is repeated by a Chess author....>

This is not really an error; it arises from the translation. Pachman also refers, inter alia, to a city called <Agram>, which is the German-Austrian name of what is generally known as Zagreb.

Nov-26-16  JimNorCal: After 25. Nd6 did you notice the threat QxR+? Black did!

  MissScarlett: C.N. 10798: <From Alan McGowan (Waterloo, Canada):

‘It appears that the well-known game Teichmann v Allies, supposedly played in Glasgow in 1902, actually occurred there three years later.>

Apr-11-18  sudoplatov: Teichmann did better against the Allies than the Central Powers did some years later.

  GrahamClayton: How do these consultation games work when it is time for the Allies to make a move? Do they do their consulting right at the board, or do they do it away from the board so that Teichmann can't hear them?

The King walk is almost forced here - all of the White pieces are on their optimum squares, and Teichmann doesn't want to make weakening pawn moves.
