  alexmagnus: He is responsible for probably what is the quickest world champion losing miniature: Wiersma vs Euwe, 1920.

I can't remember any other WC loss in fewer than 12 moves (Spassky once blundered a Knight on move 8 but didn't resign).

  alexmagnus: Got to correct myself: the quickest losing game by a (future/present/past) WC was A Zapata vs Anand, 1988

  Phony Benoni: There appear to be two Wiersmas; the later games should be attributed to Tjalling Wiersma
Nov-02-09  waustad: Perhaps there are 3. There is an E Wiersma Sr. who played Euwe some and another IM Eelke Wiersma

Eelke Wiersma

who is still around. The only one who made the Chessmetrics list is the present day IM.

  Phony Benoni: <Waustad> Thanks for the information, but I think only two are invoved on this page. The games from 1973-1982 are all correspondence games, and Tjalling Wiersma (born 1950) is a noted correspondence player. Eelke Wiersma was born in 1971, probably too late to have played any of the games (his earliest game in the database is 1991).

Do you have any more information on E. Wiersma Sr.? If he was the one playing Euwe in the 1920s he was more likely to be young Eelke's grandfather than father.

  Stonehenge: Perhaps D. Wiersma but I've also found a P. and a J. Wiersma. The latter drew Euwe in a simul Dec/11/1926.
