This could be an unusual chess record or just some kind of record that is non chess by a chess player.
Just to start out, I won a duplicate bridge tournament with 640 players last month. [a minor record]
Here is another--semi record--I have bowled 344 perfect bowling games in the last 2 years.
One more, I have [in the past] played more than 4,000 chess games in a row --all wins--no losses or draws--against more than 500 players.
In the late 1800's, there was a German chessmaster... can't recall his name... who still holds the world record for resigning by sweeping the pieces off the chess-board and breaking the wooden board over his opponent's head. His personal best, eleven times in one tournament, has never been beaten.
Here are some unusual players by Chess Records:
Are chess and bowling related?
And how about bridge and bowling?
Yes, chess and bowling both have (bad) puns, I mean pins.
Both take a lot of concentration. I have bowled quite a few games with the first 11 strikes and then lose concentration and not get the 12th strike for a perfect game.
ponz111 must be a direct descendant of Zukertort (L) or Baron Munchausen.
How am i a direct descendant?
I was speaking, or rather typing, figuratively. You can look them up using any search engine and/or read about them at Wikipedia.
I am guessing you do not think I bowled so many perfect games?
Well as a matter of fact...is there a newspaper article or some other source for this admittedly amazing feat? The chess record you mention above is also quite amazing - and hard to believe. But maybe being believed is not a major concern here?
NimzoRoy in chess you need to use your imagination to find new lines of play that others have not found.
Yes, I have bowled that many perfect games in the last 2 years the catch is that it was on Wii bowling. Despite the "catch" it is a rather good record but there is one person who has beat my "record" all to heck--this gentleman has bowled maybe over 1500 perfect games in Wii bowling.
There is a rating system in Wii bowling and I am tied in the world with
other Will bowlers with the highest possible score--to get that rating one must bowl a lot of perfect games and when one gets near that record and bowls say a 299 then your rating drops. I do not post things I have not done.
Here is another record for you. I am the only player in the history of the United States
Correspondence Chess Championship to win ALL my games with
Black in the Finals. There have been about 20 such
I can also explain how I did my chess record of so many games in a row with wins.
When I was 15 years old-I lived in Decatur, Illinois and had my own motor scooter. Back then it was legal for a 15 year old to ride a motor schooter.
This was1956. The school district hired teachers as playground supervisors during the summer at about 40 different spots. They hired me as chess instructor for the whole city! I was paid the same salary as the teachers. I would drive my scooter to a designated playgroud and would find say 10 kids all set up with their chess sets to play me and I always did a simul playing all at once and when one lost they would just set up a different game. I was winning all my games but then lost a game.
after that for the rest of the year 3 months in the summer] I won every single game with no losses and no draws. And the next year [3 months in the summer] I won every single game.
I was a better player than the school kids. I played more than 400 kids in the 2 years and there were more than 4000 games in a row without loss or draw.
I also have a tripple tennis record but here is something in tennis when I did not do so well. I was playing in a tournament--you win a match and you go on to next round. I had won one match and in the second match was destroying another player. I had won 5 straight games and was ahead 40 love on the 5th game. But it was very hot--about 100 degrees and I was exhausted and could not get the final point and my opponent came back and beat me!
Also, I have never lost or drew with any grandmaster--and there are 3 grandmasters who play now who I have played in the past.
And I grandmaster [a different one] who played a game of tandem chess with me. He and I were one one side against two very strong players on the other side. We did not lose that game.
Lots of silly records. I have a record for comparatively least time taken in an internet game where one master plays a whole team which consisted of several masters and other players. [I am proud of this particular record]
Other than our prisoners cuba I am one of the few people in the world who has been tortured by music. Guess I just have weird things happen to me...
Not to mention the very weird way I never became a USCF master despite playing above that level.
Obvious troll is obvious :3
I am not a troll! These things did happen. For a longer explanation of some of these weird things go to Ponziani Power group and read the forums. [if that is allowed] Or for some proof read my profile.
I can explain every one of my weird happening and for some I have proof such as never losing to a gm etc.
Here is another, I have played two US Champions--two players who have won a United States Championship and beat them both [at chess]
Those without imagination will dismiss what I say as trolling but those who are free thinkers will say "Why would he say these things if they were not true" and then at least ask questions.
