68 ( +1 | -1 ) Great chess websitewww.xs4all.nl/~timkr/chess/chess.html
Thought I'd post this for all. The chess records are quite interesting (e.g., longest lived quadruble pawns, 23 moves, which on a side note this site came to my attention after I had a triple pawn and my opponent and I wondered how often or even if quad pawns had occured in high level play). Also I've found his Open Chess Diary to be particularly informative and instructive. There's some great stories in there, including one about the likelyhood of Fischer playing online chess.
22 ( +1 | -1 ) Tim Krabbeis a Dutch chessplayer who also has written some interesting books. Most popular is the book "Het Gouden Ei" (Dutch) from which they made the movie "The Vanishing". Its a great Dutch chessplayer and writer!!
23 ( +1 | -1 ) I was looking at the records link and noticed that there was a game where castling took place 3 times. How is this possible? I thought (and am almost positive) that each side can only castle once.
56 ( +1 | -1 ) multiple castleI thought that game very strange as well. It is definitely illegal, but if the players failed to note this (how remains a ?) then I guess after the move is made, recorded and not challenged it's too late. I would bet that other illegal moves have been made in tournament play and missed by both players (e.g., a castle through check perhaps), but don't know. Apparently Tim uses a program that can search through database records for positions to see these things--don't know if he's checked for other potential illegal moves.
