  MissScarlett: < Feldgrau: In 2000, Tim Krabbe penned a piece for Chesscafe.com, titled <Regicide>, documenting the number of defeats suffered by reigning world champions from Steinitz to Kasparov.

<As said, I only count games that the world champions lost while holding the title, and only serious games: rapid, blitz, exhibition, computer, consultation, correspondence, cable and Internet games are not included in my number. I also don't count games that were played in matches and tournaments for the world championship. The throne must somehow be seen as vacant during such competitions...>

The article no longer resides in the ChessCafe archives, but Google locates a copy: www.irlchess.com/puzzles/krabbe09.pdf

Krabbe's results are:

<Steinitz (1886/1894): 0

Lasker (1894/1921): 17

Capablanca (1921/1927): 3

Alekhine (1927/1935 and 1937/1946): 21

Euwe (1935/1937): 7

Botvinnik (1948/1957, 1958/1960 and 1961/1963): 15

Smyslov (1957/1958): 1

Tal (1960/1961): 1

Petrosian (1963/1969): 18

Spassky (1969/1972): 3

Fischer (1972/1975): 0

Karpov (1975/1985) 23

Kasparov (1985/2000) 27>

Following the classical line and Krabbe's criterion, Kramnik was the 14th world champion from his victory over Kasparov in London to the start of the 2007 world championship tournament in Mexico City. Anand has been champion since the end of that event.

Now...I'm going to ask someone else to do all the work in calculating their respective numbers. Good luck!>

Consider it done!

That's Magnus's ninth loss of the year, equalling Kramnik''s 2005 record (see above). Magnus has the rest of this event (assuming he appears again), the London Chess Classic and the Qatar Masters Open to extend the record to dizzying new heights.

Aug-12-17  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.
