Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-07-04  Nomen Nescio: What a buildup in the middle.
Sep-08-04  suenteus po 147: I like these games where each king move is a decision between dropping the queen or walking further into a mating net. Such decisions are usually faux, as they amount to the same thing in the end.
Nov-13-05  DAL9000: What /I/ like about this game is that, for once, NN beats a master. Excellent.

  Eric Schiller: <DAL9000> It may just be analysis. As with Greco, many "games" have been entered into databases that were just published analysis, with an invented "NN" opponent. Since Jaenisch was a famous and widely quoted analyst, I suspect that is the case, but haven't researched the matter.
Jan-11-06  prinsallan: Hopefully its a real win for NN. Poor NN always gets his few wins taken away. Perhaps, once in a while a stong player fumbles a game to the better players.
Jan-11-06  ChessVip: NN aka Nyuk Nyuk
Jan-11-06  prinsallan: NN aka No Name or Latin Nomen Nescio.
The latter means "I dont know his name".
May-01-06  SJP: The pedant in me screams that "nomen nescio" means "I know not the name" or "I know not a name". "I don't know his name" would be "nomen suum nescio".
May-01-06  SJP: <Eric Schiller> If Jaenisch did compose this game, why not put himself as White?
May-01-06  Karpova: why should he have done that? if this was just published analysis everyone would have been aware of this. he probably didn't think of a internet chessgames database 164 years later indicating that he actually lost such a game.

He has been justly punished for his lack of foresight.

May-01-06  Karpova: He's probably turning over in his grave right now
Oct-19-07  sneaky pete: Staunton, The Chess Player's Chronicle Volume 3, 1843, page 54, has this game as played "between Von H...t, one of the finest players of Berlin, and M. Major J...h. Elsewhere in the same volume Staunton gives a contribution by his Berlin correspondent Von Heydebran<t>.

I hate to do this to NN, but white in this game is really Baron Tassilo Heydebrand und der Lasa.

Sep-13-08  TheTamale: Nnice.
Dec-31-08  WhiteRook48: I really think this should go into Game Collection of King Hunts.
