53 ( +1 | -1 ) Although ...... I'm sure you could've won faster if you had just used the first couple queens. I seems to me that the only reason you could have to get all those queens would be to just be able to say you could or to embarrass your opponent. Either way, they still wouldn't count the record. I'm not trying to be rude and if you had another reason for getting all those queens, I would be happy to hear it but I suspect you would have a hard time convincing the record keepers that they should count your record.
21 ( +1 | -1 ) gromansweIncredible! I don't know how that came about! according to FIDE chess rules: Castling is illegal: if the king has already been moved, or with a rook that has already been moved
152 ( +1 | -1 ) Heidensfeld-Kerins, 1973, Irish ChampionshipsHeidensfeld-Kerins, 1973, Irish Championships A famous game! I searched the web. And the explanation on white castling twice, is That it was illegal, but his opponent didn't discover it. He should have protested and called for a referee. But noone noticed anything, until, maybe, long after.
White first castles 0-0. Then goes g1-f1-e1, so king is back on its place. Then he makes 0-0-0, and wins the game.
Don't try this plan at Gameknot - I am sure it won't work. :D -------------------------------------------------------- Wolfgang Heidenfeld was a very good player. You can find many of his games aginst top-players, on the www.
"Wolfgang won the South African championship eight times and the Irish championship six times. Indeed, in 1959 he was both Irish and South African champion while domiciled in Germany! In 1955 he clinched first place in the last round of a South African tournament by beating former world champion Max Euwe. He had other wins against top players, including Najdorf and Durao, and numerous draws, including Pachman."
