John Nunn lost to a kid.
to be entertained by a chess bookas well as being amazed and reading some neat stories,try to locate: The Fireside Book of Chess! The absolute best and most entertaining book upon chess,players,anecdotes,odd but true,short stories,a compilation of the world's most exciting games,and much more. I still have a copy from45 yrs. ago.
was his name Magnus Carlsen??
It was this guy.
Yes, and because of that most kids on chesskid.com thinks he's a terrible chess player!
tetsuo shima,my apologies;the 17 move forced mate that was lost due to a move out of order was by two(2) masters,not a 1300 vs. 1700 player. should have made that clear.
i mean a 1300 and 2700 layer,enough.
Dr. Nunn is one of my favorite players.
I am no fan of dr.Nunn, his books, or his play, but this doesn't mean that ultimate patzers have the right to mock at him.
I really enjoy Nunn's books, especially Secrets of Grandmaster Play and Secrets of Practical Chess. His comments in the latter are piquant and concise and his examples are excellent.
Dr. Nunn has won several awards for his books, including the British Chess Federation's Book of the year for Secrets of Grandmaster Play.
Some of Nunn's games do feel a bit trappy to me, but his books have helped me to think more concretely.
And I agree with Pfren that mocking Dr. Nunn for losing to a kid (who just so happened to become the youngest GM in the history of the UK) is completely inappropriate.
That's a Nunn-sequitur, dude.
Worth noting that in an interview not too long ago Carlsen said Nunn could have been World Champion, except that he was (is) too clever.
Nunn has nunthing to prove. Even to IM @Pfren.
It's like saying Ken Rogoff is "only a GM."
Both Nunn's (and Rogoff's) CVs impress, greatly.
I know! He's one of my favorites! His tactic book called "Learn Chess Tactics" is brilliant! (it's not a book for beginners at all despite the title).
his checkmate book is also good, unlike others he really put effort in his work.
no ..... to the original title question, that is.
was Ken Rogoff really a GM??
