   Gioachino Greco has kibitzed 19 times to chessgames   [more...]

Gioachino Greco: A MODEST PROPOSAL Many of you are familiar with the "greatest player of all time" debates. Unfortunately, there has been no objective measurement that can accurately gauge playing ability--though attempts have recently been made. Remember the article a while ago from ...
   Nov-28-06 Ruy Lopez vs G da Cutri, 1560 (replies)
Gioachino Greco: <whitehat1963>It's too difficult to gauge the relative strength of Lopez and Philidor to answer that question. You might have a better chance with Philidor and Greco--Philidor has several blindfolded/odds/simul games preserved (about sixty, I believe), and something ...
   Nov-28-06 William Lewis (replies)
Gioachino Greco: Lewis has as good a claim as Deschapelles to the unofficial "world championship". He was the best player in England from Sarratt's death to MacDonnell's prime, and beat Deschapelles (+1 =2) in a short match when he and Cochrane went to France to try their abilities against ...
   Nov-20-06 Francois Philidor (replies)
Gioachino Greco: <James Demery> Yes, Greco won every game.
   Oct-31-06 Alexandre Deschapelles (replies)
Gioachino Greco: <Emperor Atahualpa> Deschappelles also has several games at odds recorded against William Lewis in one of Lewis's books.

Gioachino Greco: The use of computer databases of problems has brought this question into the limelight for me--just how superior, if at all, do you believe modern chess instruction is compared to a couple of centuries ago? Previously, methods were simpler. An 18th century English-speaking ...

Gioachino Greco: <Radbul> Agreed--Deep Blue would prove too much of a cost hurdle......unless someone could sponsor recreating it for a match against the next world champion (as a "celebrity" of sorts, Deep Blue could generate a lot of attention in a rematch with a human champion). As ...
   May-02-06 Louis Charles Mahe De La Bourdonnais (replies)
Gioachino Greco: <Maatalkko> I agree that Greco is debateable. His writings alone are not sufficient grounds for a world championship claim--just as Carrera, Polerio, Lopez, Damiano, etc. cannot be regarded as world champions. What distinguishes Greco is the fact that he travelled ...
   Sep-10-05 Adolf Anderssen (replies)
Gioachino Greco: I wonder if anyone has an opinion on who would win a match between a in-prime Anderssen and an in-prime Steinitz. I have always suspected that Anderssen might just be able to surmount Steinitz's advantage in theory with his greater combinative ability. What do you think?
   Aug-27-05 Gioachino Greco (replies)
Gioachino Greco: If I could see one hypothetical chess match, it would be between Gioachino Greco and Philidor. The match would have it all--two contrasting styles, two evenly matched players of great historical interest, and the fact that both players absolutely dominated their era and both
