|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.|
|Feb-28-07|| ||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.|
|Nov-07-07|| ||kevin86: This looks like a sequel to yesterday's game--My king goes a walkin'.|
|Nov-07-07|| ||Chessmensch: Some interesting stuff that might bear on this (and is worthwhile reading otherwise): http://www.chesshistory.com/winter/....
Still, Allies' record is awful.|
|Nov-07-07|| ||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.
|Nov-08-07|| ||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|
|Mar-06-09|| ||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!|
|Aug-20-11|| ||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"
|Nov-26-16|| ||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!|
|Apr-11-18|| ||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.|
|Apr-12-18|| ||MissScarlett: Another idiotic comment.|
|Jul-17-18|| ||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.
