|Feb-20-07|| ||Elixir of Life: <Arno Nickel>:
I don't know where this post is more appropriate, the World vs Arno Nickel game page or the Arno Nickel player page, so I'm gonna post this in both threads.
One of the closest and most hotly debated battle, on move 29/30, was concerning the R1f2 manouver vs the fxg6/Qg5 manouver. The R1f2 supporters feel that if we play otherwise, your rooks will reach the 7th rank. The fxg6/Qg5 supporters consider the threat of your rooks at 7th as a "paper tiger". Which move do you think is better?
I'd like to hear some analysis on your side.
|Feb-20-07|| ||andytoh: woohoo! we won the game!!! hurray!!!!!!!|
|Feb-25-07|| ||Arno Nickel: Hi, dear friends of chessgames.com!
I am sorry I couldn't spare time for your discussions (esp. the Shulman game) last weeks, but I haven't forgot you. Right now I'm very busy preparing the 5th Freestyle Tournament on playchess.com, March 2nd-4th. If you are interested or even want trying to win the 1st prize, which is US $8'000 in the Final (March 23rd-25th), please read my latest article on the ChessBase site:
See you later!
|Feb-26-07|| ||Artar1: Arno Nickel:
Good luck in you upcoming tournament!
|Mar-07-07|| ||trumbull0042: I can't believe the world won this, this is incredible.|
|Apr-23-07|| ||Whitehat1963: What would have been best play after 32. Bc5 Rxc5?|
|May-02-07|| ||TheHurricane3: "I can't believe the world won this, this is incredible."|
This wasn't a Arno Nickel vs The World match it was a Arno Nickel's Rybka vs The Worlds Rybka match lol
|May-02-07|| ||Swyp: "This wasn't a Arno Nickel vs The World match it was a Arno Nickel's Rybka vs The Worlds Rybka match lol"|
may want to actually look at how each side operated a bit closer.
|May-07-07|| ||Arno Nickel: I am sorry, I couldn't spare any time for further analysis, but I will come back in some weeks. Also I am eager to have a rematch here vs. The World in some months or may be in early 2008. I suppose after another challenge, where you will have White vs. any strong GM. After that we could play the rematch "GMAN-TheWorld" - let's twist again... :)
|May-20-07|| ||themadhair: We the world await that rematch with eager anticipation.|
|Jun-10-07|| ||yusuke: hey, where are my comrades?
|Jul-15-07|| ||chancho: The world's first win.|
|Jul-26-07|| ||RookFile: I was just reading over page 283 again, and smiling. There was an opening decision between Nc3 and a4. Ten minutes before the close of the vote, Nc3 was ahead by 20 votes. With frantic campaigning (due to a live telecasted game that literally had just ended), a4 managed to come back and win, in that 10 minutes span, by 3 votes.|
|Dec-03-07|| ||dabearsrock1010: 36. b4! I absolutely love this move|
|Dec-03-07|| ||benjinathan: <dabearsrock1010> If you love it enough to review the debate about the move, which was intense, you can check out around page 927.|
|Dec-03-07|| ||dabearsrock1010: <benjinathan> i did and i have to say a lot of moves probably win but i think b4 is the most pleasing to the eye. I think Hugin's comment summed up my feelings about it (I don't remember what page its on, but he just mentions the pawn is poison so the move helps the pawn structure, and also the threat of Qd8 still remains)|
|Dec-07-07|| ||661973: who is the winner ?|
|Jan-09-08|| ||D.Observer: Hmm, can Arno Nickel win the game with 41. ... xb7 42. axb7 e8 ?|
|Jan-09-08|| ||kellmano: Apologies if you're joking, but black's rook is then tied down to blocking white's b-pawn. White's rook takes black's b-pawn then wins on the kingside, as he will always be able to lose a tempo by vertical moves of the rook.|
GMAN knew the chance of a white blunder was slim.
|Jan-29-08|| ||just a kid: Wow!You guys(and girls)Played a great game!I wish I could've been a part of it.Unfortunatly I wasn't on this site yet.|
|Jul-17-08|| ||Hugin: Arno Nickel had a draw late as move 32...
32..Re6? was a mistake...
32..Rc2! 33.Bf6 Ree2 34.Rg3 Rf2 35.Rxf2 Rxf2 36.Bxg7 Kxg7 37.Qe7+ Rf7 38.Qxd6 Qxa5 39.Rg5 Rf6 40.Qe7+ Rf7 41.Qe5+ Kh6 42.Qxd5 Qxd5 43.Rxd5 Rb7 44.Ra5 Rxb2 45.Rxa6 Rd2 46.Ra4 Rd3 47.g3 Rd2+ 48.Kg1 Kg5 49.Ra5+ Kf6 50.Rd5 Ke6 51.Re5+ draw was much better.
|Jul-17-08|| ||Ezzy: I didn't participate in this game, but I would like to congratulate all participants on an incredible and masterful victory.|
The organisation was first class. An outstanding effort by everyone involved.
This world team is getting a fearsome reputation!
|Jul-17-08|| ||Karpova: <Hugin>
See themadhair chessforum (Dec-04-06 already has some discussion but the forum was designated to this move on Dec-05-06) for the discussion on this move. The continuation you chose for white (33.Bf6) was considered a weak option, 33.Rf7 being considered the best (and 33.Kh1 still better than 33.Bf6).
|Aug-11-08|| ||Dionyseus: I thought it would be interesting to see how new technology views this 2006 game, so I performed over 15 hours of analysis with Aquarium's IDeA using the new Rybka 3 engine on white's 19th move, which happens to be one of the most memorable moments for me for this game.|
For those who are not familiar with Aquarium's IDeA mode, I reccommend this page: http://chessok.com/?p=518
In the tree that Aquarium created, 19.Bg5 was first with +0.26, 19.Bb6 was second with +0.18, and 19.Bd4 was third with +0.11.
Here are the two main lines created by Aquarium:
1) 19.Bg5 Nh5 20.Nd4 d5 21.Kh1 Qd6 22.Bxe7 Qxe7 23.Qf2 g5 24.f6 Qe3 25.Qf5 Qe5 26.Qxe5 Rxe5 27.Nf3

2) 19.Bb6 Ng4 20.Nd4 Bf8 21.Qf4 Ne5 22.Qg3 d5 23.Rae1 Bd6 24.fxg6 fxg6 25.Nf5 Nf7 26.Nxd6 Nxd6 27.Qf4

|Aug-11-08|| ||classF: <Dionyseus> during the game, Rybka recommended Bg5 three times, on moves 12, 18 and 19, none of which the team followed.|
1. (0.30): 19.Bg5 Qd8 20.Nd4 Nd7 21.h4 d5
