This has to be one of the most hilariously bad TV shows ever!

I've just heard that the presenter has been signed up for a 52 week series of hour long specials on the advanced tactics of "Buckaroo".

Terry :wink:

You Tube video of chess computer GM cheat - 1968!

Post by rafowell »

There was a long article recently on the topic of using computers
to cheat in chess tournaments.

http://beta.uschess.org/frontend/magazine_124_228.php

It seems the idea of chess computers to cheat
in chess tournaments at the grandmaster level
was in vogue long before the
computers were up to the task.

In this 1968 (not 1966) episode of the television program
"Mission Impossible" posted on You Tube, a chess master wins with
the aid of a computer. What I'm trying to figure out is the
full game. I'm guessing it is likely a famous game, but I
don't have my database loaded for a position search.

Anyone recognize it? With the right software, you
should just be able to search with the EPD string

Mission Impossible game is Labone vs NN, Birmingham 1901

Post by rafowell »

Okay, I think I've found the answer to my question, thanks
to Susan Polgar's Chess Blog:
http://susanpolgar.blogspot.com/2007/04 ... ts_09.html

The game appears to have been intended to be:
O H Labone vs NN:
Birmingham 1901 · Scandinavian Defense: Mieses-Kotroc Variation (B01)
http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessgame?gid=1242901

The matter isn't helped by many little inconsistencies in the
video, such as:
(a) In the initial view of the board, there is a piece at b8,
and not at g8, but the reverse is true in later views.
(b) The white King is moved to d2 per:
- the computer printout
- the board view of the move
- the demo board
but the white King is at e2 in later views of the board
(which is the move I put in above).
(c) On the demo board, there is a black pawn at
d3 that is never in any view of the playing board.
The demo board follows the LaBone game, in that
respect, as does the score fragment in the video.

The one thing is that the Knight at a6 in the Labone game
is not evidenced in the game board, demo board, or
score fragments. However, since everything else about
the LaBone game is matched by the preponderance of those
three items, it seems the LaBone game is definitely what
was intended to be played out here.

The missing Labone knight at a6 - found!

Post by rafowell »

While the Labone knight at a6 is missing on both the
playing board and the demo board, it is visible on
the pocket chess set used by the spectator to follow
the game, so it seems certain the LaBone game
was the intended source.

The pocket set does have an extra white piece,
though ...

The Labone game appears in
Chernev's 1000 Best Short Games of Chess , per
http://www.jimloy.com/chess/2rook.htm,
and Black resigned after Ng6+, rather than
playing the game out, unsurprisingly.

I recently watched this episode of "Mission Impossible"... It is very funny... There's a game where the famous grandmaster gets mated in 9 moves (after a Nxc2+ etc...) and says to his opponent "no one makes moves like that... No Lasker... No Nimzovitch".
However, on another game he looses in 4 moves : 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Bc5 3.Nxe5 Qh5 4.d3 Qxf2 mate... My comments are "no one makes move like that... No my little cousin, no my grandpa"
Seems to me that these grand masters were very weak in the 60's...
