Jan-04-08  Eyal: In the 3rd round of the recent World Seniors' Championship, Titz played yet another immoral game - this time with Hans-Uwe Kock.

Jan-04-08  Whitehat1963: Incredible and hilarious, <Eyal>!

How about this for a title for this game: Give us a Kiss, hun.

  FSR: "Kiss-Titz" is one of the finest chess game names I have ever seen. Other nominees: Short-Cummings (in the collection of Nigel Short's games written by his father); Redman-Savage (Midwest Masters 1982 -- sounds like a slur on Native Americans); and Koch-Sucher, described by Graham Burgess in his book on miniature games as "a most unfortunate name."

  FSR: <Eyal> Kock against Titz? I think that might be illegal in a few states.
Jan-06-08  Eyal: <Other nominees> There was an Orr-Knott game in 1986 - that's also a nice one (Mark Orr as White vs. Simon J B Knott as Black; credit for spotting it goes to <Domdaniel>).

Btw, another great immoral game might be produced by Tomas Oral and Gyula Sax, but apparently it hasn't taken place yet...

Jan-06-08  Whitehat1963: Csom vs H U Kock, 2001

Go "ahead." That's Csom-Kock you clicked on.

True, but these games have occurred:

A Kunte vs Oral, 2002

A Kunte vs Oral, 1995

This game is definitely a confrontation for the ages, and the pairing mentioned by Burgess is 'most unfortunate...', to say the least.

  FSR: <perfidious> Someone ought to arrange a tournament among Koch, Sucher, Kiss, Titz, Kunte, and Fuchs. Just imagine all the exciting matchups!

  perfidious: <FSR>: Just found the elusive miniature referred to by Burgess, actually played by Hans-Uwe Kock as White:

<1. d4 d5 2. Nf3 Nf6 3. Bf4 e6 4. e3 Be7 5. Nbd2 O-O 6. Bd3 c5 7. c3 Nc6 8. O-O b6 9. Ne5 Bb7 10. Qf3 Bd6 11. Qh3 Ne7 12. Rad1 Qe8 13. Ng4 1-0>

In no wise does this diminish the comedic value of Burgess' comment.

I have discovered the perfect venue for the above-described tournament: http://bit.ly/1eayLvU If I were an eccentric gazillionaire, I would totally sponsor it.

  perfidious: <FSR> The last but one paragraph of a section on that town:

<Putting the problem in context, however, tz-online notes that numerous villages across the border in Germany have names that are "unfortunate" even in German, including Affendorf (Monkey Village), Faulebutter (Putrid Butter), Fickmühlen (**** Mill), Himmelreich (Kingdom of Heaven), Katzenhirn (Cat Brain), Plöd (Stupid), Regenmantel (Raincoat), Sklavenhaus (Slave House) and Warzen (Warts).>

Edit to Fickmuehlen made by your humble poster.

  perfidious: <FSR> There is also an inelegantly named town on Newfoundland. Knew someone who took a summer trip to Newfoundland and Labrador with his wife and visited the place.

<Eyal....Btw, another great immoral game might be produced by Tomas Oral and Gyula Sax, but apparently it hasn't taken place yet...>

Apparently won't, either.

  FSR: <perfidious> Didn't realize that Sax has died. That is a shame. He was only nine years older than we are.

  perfidious: There is a solution to that problem: unfettering them.
Apr-04-15  A.T PhoneHome: Well it's 21 years too late for that now. So, today I discovered these "intriguing" names. Who said that chess was boring, huh?
