Jan-12-03  refutor: you've got to be kidding me
Jan-12-03  THE GENERAL: did he resign just because he lost the horse?
Jan-12-03  Sylvester: It says it was a correspondence tournament. Maybe white wanted to quit the whole thing.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Honza Cervenka: As it was a correspondence game I guess that white wanted to play 3.Nxe5, but he wrote "g" instead of "e" on his postcard.
Feb-06-03  mrwonkabar: Best Game Ever

  InspiredByMorphy: Unbelievable. White must have been drunk, and half asleep.
Jan-28-04  clendenon: No he was asleep and half drunk.
Feb-22-04  iron maiden: This was the shortest decisive correspondence game in the database. (Not, as I previously said on another page, Norlin vs Guraj, 1974, which was mistakenly listed as correspondence.)

  Benzol: I heard of 'chess blindness' and even suffered from a bout or two of it in over the board play, but at correspondence?
Apr-28-04  ruylopez900: Apparently someone was a little optimistic :)

  Willem Wallekers: <Honza Cervenka>
Correspondence players use numbers for both ranks and lines. So it must have been 7 in stead of 5 or something like that. The reason for using numbers is that Chinese, Arabs and other nationals are unfamiliar with the Latin alphabet.

  offramp: At least he couldn't be accused of using a computer.
Nov-22-04  aw1988: Once in a tournament(!) game (2 hours for 40 moves, 1 hour for the next 20, and 30 30 for the rest, I am white) 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Nxe5?? 0-1

I thought I was playing the Halloween attack.... :(

Nov-22-04  Lawrence: <aw1988>, what about H Phillips vs Pillsbury, 1899
Nov-22-04  aw1988: Lol Lawrence, that works. But I think I'll stay away from that opening.

  TheAlchemist: <kevin86> Or Richard Taylor? :-))
Oct-16-05  Chess101: I bet Tal or Fischer in their prime would win with White in the final position even against a strong player.
Nov-26-05  Chopin: This guy should play checkers instead.
Mar-10-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: <Chopin> There's actually 1 good move by poor Tobor in this database. It's 24...Qa5 in V M Pedersen vs D Tobor, 1991. ;-)
Mar-24-06  WarmasterKron: <Chopin> But isn't checkers for tramps?
Mar-31-06  McCool: This guy should've ended his chess career right after that move.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: Legend has it that there's an even shorter correspondence game. After 1.d4, Black played 1...g6, and wrote, "If any, then 2...Bg7." So White played 2.Bh6!! Bg7 3.Bxg7 and Black resigned.

  whiteshark: Mixed it with the Two Nights Variation ...
