  offramp: <MissScarlett: Kramnik's nine defeats in 2005 set a new record, taking over from Lasker's seven in 1895.>

I was surprised at that, as I'd always thought of Kramnik as an immovable object. But then I saw that he played 72 games in 2005, and almost all against very strong opposition.

Another surprise is Petrosian's 18 losses in his 6 years as champion. It is only 3 a year on average but I had the idea that Petrosian didn't play very much.

  MissScarlett: 24 losses now puts him in clear second place ahead of Karpov. Garry still leads with 27 losses. Garry was champion for 15 years, though; Magnus less than 5.

  Sally Simpson: Not long finished reading 'The Rider' by Tim Krabbe.

https://blackwells.co.uk/jacket/l/9...

An excellent read. It's all about one long gruelling race with Tim updating on how the race he is taking part in is going and him recalling other cycling incidents.

Chess pops up every now and then.

He mentions solo riders who storm off into the lead at the start of these races getting loud applause and cheers from the spectators.

Mid-race they soon get overtaken and finish way down the order. 'Dumped' is the technical term Tim uses and likens it to the buzz that goes around the gallery in a chess tournament.

Krabbe sacrifices his Queen on move 10. The crowd gasp in admiration. Five moves later Krabbe resigns.

100% recommended.

Apr-12-20  sneaky pete: The author of Chess Curiosities will celebrate his 77th birthday tomorrow. He has exactly 77 games in this database. If you read 77 from right to left, it's still ... 77! Isn't that curious enough to make the man Player of the Day tomorrow? Or will it be that old bore Harry Weinstein again?

One more curiosity: today, April 12,2020, the bio tells us (born Apr-13-1943, 77 years old). Wonderful Chessgames.com mathematics!
