Beating AL in a game of Fischer random chess


GUY IN RED: shall we start? Is that so? INAUDIBLE REPLY ME: Yes that’s correct. ME: Yes that’s correct. (Laughter) BACKGROUND: castling long is especially nice here. ME: So little guy, can you actually play the game? AL: No. ME: Me neither. AL: But I don’t think the Fischer setup is responsible for that. AL: But I don’t think the Fischer setup is responsible for that. ME: Ok… AL: Ok… MAN IN BACKGROUND: Hey, come on. You should play a legal move. MAN IN BACKGROUND: You should move the correct knight. AL: Hey, that’s wrong! ME: No, there something wrong here people. What is amiss? AL: Queen on a1. So that’s alright. AL: That Queen should be on a8. CAMERAMAN: Uhhm, some time compensation? CAMERAMAN: The entire game is being recorded for posterity, Albert. CAMERAMAN: Just so you are aware of this. AL: Well, in that case, I will make sure not to produce any offspring! MAN IN RED: Are you really sure about that Albert? MAN IN RED: Maybe it’s out in the wild already. AL: This one was over here?
ME: Yes. AL: It was not like this?
ME: No, the pieces stand like this. AL: I castled kingside on move 1. MAN IN BACKGROUND: You just played that move AGAIN…
OTHER MAN: Yes. (INAUDIBLE) CAMERAMAN: Do you want to say anything before the start of the game? ME: Yes, this boy over here obviously has no chance whatsoever. AL: Well look, this man over here has got all the chances in his pocket. Now, let me see… ME: Good luck! AL: Move 1. I castle. BACKGROUND: I’m calculating some completely wrong. If it is possible to calculate all in such a position. QUESTION: Do you resign?
MAN IN RED: Are you crazy? CAMERAMAN: No, you’re not getting in view. CAMERMAN: No, that’s not possible, because this game, …. MAN IN RED: Joris, you’re lost, because your king fell earlier. AL: That king is over there?
ME: No, it’s over here.
AL: I was just saying. ME: It just fell over and I just misplaced it. AL: Knight!! You know? AL: I love to retreat a piece! ME: Active play by you!
AL: Well, active…. AL: Was there some openingtrap? MAN IN RED: Well it sure likes like that! AL: Just out of the blue there was some kind of trap in the opening! MAN IN RED: Let us just resign the game. ME: Ok, despite what I just said, let’s play a dick move.
AL: Despite what you said, you play a dick move… CAMERAMAN: A Rudy move. ME: But yeah, from now on…. CAMERAMAN: All has been recorded.
ME: Yes, exactly! AL: I’m being completely outFischered! ME: You’re being completely outFischered indeed. AL: No, but for real. That was just a healthy sacrifice! ME: Of course, you got perpetual check now, amongst other things…
AL: A typical healthy sacrifice. MAN IN RED: Well,I still see possibilities for white… ME: I hope so! MAN IN BACKGROUND: Yes, but that one was also unprotected. MAN IN BACKGROUND: You’re going for stalemate I see. But that one is ALSO unprotected! MAN IN BACKGROUND: It’s as if there is vacuum cleaner hovering over the board. AL: Well, mister Fischer, I don’t believe your variant of chess really gives me any better results! AL: That’s a nasty move of course…. ME: That’s why I played Queen d6. MAN IN RED: Joris, why didn’t you win already? ME: No, it’s going that well for me.
AL: O, I think it’s getting easier by the minute! ME: Well yes, now it’s like….. AL: Here, that’s mate. MAN IN RED: What did they put in your drink Albert? AL: Mate. Well a nice short game. You wouldn’t want that long of a video. CAMERAMAN: Yes, I’m almost out of film. ME: Look over here, checkmate with Knight f2. CAMERAMAN: Yes, it’s been recorded. AL: Yes, he can choose. Either between checkmate or the winning of the Queen. CAMERAMAN: The winning of the king or the queen! ME: Nice, winning a game of chess captured on video! CAMERAMAN: Yes, I’m just taking a look at the other boards. AL: I’m making it official: no offspring for me!! CAMERAMAN: Short interview with the winner. Tell me, how do you feel? ME: Well, this, of course, feels completely natural, since I already predicted this outcome in advance. ME: He did play a couple of tricky moves. But that’s how I know him. ME: I think he’s just having an offday… I think that’s it… CAMERAMAN: My compliments.
ME: Well, thank you!
