This chess game is likely of interest to students of physics. Yes, Albert Einstein played chess, and it was in 1933, Princeton USA, where he played against Robert Julius Oppenheimer. Curiously enough, Einstein chose the Ruy Lopez or Spanish Game, the most theoretical opening, in this 24-move encounter against Oppenheimer.
wow - some of the smartest people in the world
wow brilliant play from einstein
Relatively tactical play from Einstien,enjoyed watching it.
I've seen this game before, but never so well analyzed.
Experts, like Silman, agree with Bill Wall that the game is apocryphal.
About a level of 1600 from Einstein, I think.
I thought Einstein was partial to checkers and Polish sausages or least his wife was.
Relatively good playing by Einstein.
I've been researching this possible game for years, tracing both Einstein and Oppenheimer's career (I do have several degrees in physics). I have gone through multiple biographies and articles of each man. I am not convinced that this game was played by Albert Einstein, or even Oppenheimer. Here is my link on Einstein and chess.
If anyone has more research on the these men and chess, I would be interested in the information and sources.
Also, what is the source of Einstein and Sell game - when and where?
Einstein played well. It is interesting to note how he later wrote in the foreword of one of Lasker's books that he (Einstein) does not like chess because of its competitive nature. Einstein also believed that chess had put Lasker's mind in shackles.
Well, in this game Einstein got competitive and solidly destroyed the Destroyer of Worlds!
great video, i thought i read somewhere Einstein was around 1800ish. Estimated though since he didn't have an actual rating
nice game ,,, thanks jerry
