click for larger view
24.Bg6!! Rg8 25.Bxh7! Kxh7 26.Qh4+ Kg6 27.Rd3 Qh5 28.Rg3+ 1-0 (28...Kh6 29.Qf4+ Kh7 and now either 30.Rh3 or 30.Qxb8).
24...Qf6 might have led to an even prettier finish: 25.Qe2! Qe7 26.Qh5 h6 27.Qh4! Rxf1+ (27...Qd6 28.Rxf8+ Qxf8 29.Rd8) 28.Rxf1 Qd6 29.Qg3! e5 30.Qd3! Qe7 31.Rf7 and the black queen can't keep defending f8.

Wouldn't *you* be intimidated playing Shirov?
Scared to death ubfortunately , yes ! :P
|Feb-28-10|| ||anandrulez: Very petite combination from Anand , it looked so easy to outplay a 2600 player for Vishy . Anand would have seen bg6 when he made the pawn push , thats why he played nxc5 and all ...Beauty man .|

And someone asked why I thought Anand was favored over Topalov.
|Feb-28-10|| ||whiteshark: Anand said that <21...Nxe5> was a mistake and that his position is forced win after it. <21...Bxd4> was necessary though his position is clearly better, but not a win.|

Where did you find Anand commenting on this game?

No, Shirov never had a lost game - he held the initiative since Baramidza played 20...f5 (missing the stronger ...Nf4! first). Black could have held, but he made two serious mistakes - first 31...Kf7? (after g6 he should be solid enough), perhaps missing that after 32.Bxh7 the knight on e6 is not really under threat (32...Qxe6?? 33.Bg8+), and then 33...Qe5? (after 33...Be7 34.Ng5+ Kf8 the black king seems reasonably safe).
|Feb-28-10|| ||tamar: <notyetagm> Look for "Live Ticker" and scroll down at http://liveticker.schachbundesliga....|
It is in German, but the gist is given in <whiteshark>'s post.
He said 21...Nxe5 was a mistake "even if I did not see 24 Bg6 immediately" because it gave him a forced win.
|Feb-28-10|| ||Tabanus: <whiteshark> Finally some life to this page :))|
Bundesliga round 11 today:
|Mar-01-10|| ||notyetagm: A big final weekend coming up, with 3(!) teams tied for first place.|
|Mar-01-10|| ||whiteshark: <notyetagm: A big final weekend coming up, with 3(!) teams tied for first place.> Yes, teams are Baden-Baden, Solingen and Bremen with 4 rounds to go. That's 2 weekends, March 20+21, 2010 and April 10+11. |
The match Bremen vs Solingen will be played on April 10, 2010. If they drew Baden-Baden will be Team Champion [given that they (as well as Bremen and Solingen) will win their remaining matches], otherwise there will be a playoff between Baden-Baden and the winning team (Solingen or Bremen).
|Mar-03-10|| ||whiteshark: chessbase.com reports about the Baden-Baden vs Bremen match last weekend http://chessbase.com/newsdetail.asp...|
There are also more audio-tapes with comments http://www.schachbundesliga.de/medi... (only M. Roiz in English).
I'm a bit unmotivated to translate the rest (at least not before ceegee would have uploaded the games...).
|Mar-20-10|| ||whiteshark: Round 12 will start in 2 hours (14:00 hrs local time). Pairings (with live links) are:|
Bay München : Eppingen
Erfurt : Trier
König Tegel : Solingen
Berlin : SC Remagen
Emsdetten : Baden-Baden
Wattenscheid : Heidelberg-HSH
Katernberg : Hamburg
Mülheim : Bremen
|Mar-20-10|| ||whiteshark: Bacrot is down to 1m 15s at move 25 against Giri (1h 11m). That's sick, I mean, really sick.|
|Mar-20-10|| ||Tabanus: Hi <whiteshark>, my beloved chess-results does not tell in this case who had white or black. Round 12:|
|Mar-20-10|| ||whiteshark: <Tab> A bit tricky. Two teams form a 'travelling unit' for a season. And in your round 12 list the 1st board of the second position (outward) teams (Eppingen, Trier etc) had always <White> (Tiviakov, Lupulescu etc).|
So the hosting team pool will get White pieces on board 1 tomorrow, me thinks.
|Mar-20-10|| ||Tabanus: Hmm,
they should be anaspeptic, frasmotic, even compunctuous to cause us such pericombobulation.
|Mar-21-10|| ||whiteshark: How what? :D
As the case now stands Bremen is dropped out in the championship. They lost a point in their yesterdays 4-4 vs Mülheim.
Round 13 is underway...
|Mar-21-10|| ||Tabanus: Werder Bremen did very well today though with 7,5:0.5. Results round 13:|
|Mar-22-10|| ||whiteshark: Yes, their team spirit is really ok. :)
Next round they will meet Solingen and I'm expecting a tough fight.

|Jul-21-10|| ||whiteshark: I voted for A Giri vs E Maghami, 2009 as the best game of the season.|
