|Jun-16-04|| ||iron maiden: Oh no, game one million and it's a French! :-) It's pretty exciting though. Almost makes me want to play 1...e6. |
|Feb-07-08|| ||D.Observer: The millionth game|
|Jul-16-08|| ||whiteshark: I would like to adopt this game.|
|Dec-21-08|| ||thebribri8: Not the millionth game! The first game!|
|Feb-27-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Funny game ID|
|Dec-09-11|| ||Penguincw: A queen sacrifice on game number 1000000.|
|Dec-10-12|| ||Phony Benoni: As part of the Birthday Celebration of <chessgames.com>, today's GOTD is the first game added to the database.|
|Dec-10-12|| ||waustad: Ah, so you need special info. Is there a way to tell the cg folks about extra reasons to pick a GOTD that don't fit into any of the spaces on the submission page? I recently submitted one where the reason I picked it may not be obvious, but it is a multi-level pun. It involves an old C&W singer I'd never heard of, but who's name was the reason for the submission.|
|Dec-10-12|| ||al wazir: 42...Bb8! 43. Qxb8 Rfxg2+ 44. Kh1 (44. Kh3 R2g4 45. Qf8+ Kh5 46. Qg7 Rh4#) Rg1+ 45. Kh2 R5g2+ 46. Kh3 Bg4+ 47. Kh4 g5#|
|Dec-10-12|| ||PaulLovric: FIRST? Who's on first?|
|Dec-10-12|| ||gregtebble: Surely black is winning after 24...cd! and 25 Na4 loses to Qxa4 or am I missing something?|
|Dec-10-12|| ||Abdel Irada: Excellent, puzzle-like finish, <al wazir>. I don't see any flaws. Well done.|
|Dec-10-12|| ||morfishine: Black rosen to the occasion
<al wazir> Nice find! 42...Bb8
|Dec-10-12|| ||Abdel Irada: <Black rosen to the occasion>|
|Dec-10-12|| ||erniecohen: The ♕ sac 35...♖xe5 was not the strongest move; white could have defended with 37. ♕c8+ ♖f8 38. ♗xd5+ ♖xd5 39. ♕e6+ ♔g7 40. ♕xd5 ♖f1+ 41. ♔h2 ♗d8+ 42. ♔g2 ♗f3+ 43.♕xf3 ♖xf3 44. ♔xf3, leaving White down a ♙ (though in a probably lost ending). |
The more brutal continuation is 35...♗xd4+ 36. ♗xd4 ♗f1 37. ♗xc6 ♗xh3 38. ♗xe8 ♖xe8, leaving Black up the exchange and 2♙. Or 37. ♕g4 ♖xf4 38. ♕xf4 ♕xd7, leaving Black up the exchange and 3♙ (39. ♕xf1 ♕g4+ 40. ♔h1 ♖e2 41. ♗f2 ♖e5 0-1).
|Dec-10-12|| ||kevin86: A good game...and it was a great start to cg.com
Congrats on 11th anny!
|Dec-10-12|| ||ricardolopez: What about 22..., cxd4 ?|
|Dec-10-12|| ||ProLogik: Wow, White got played.|
|Dec-10-12|| ||master of defence: Well, this is the first game that was added at the database of chessgames.com?|
|Dec-10-12|| ||BlackSheep: <al wazir> : 42...Bb8! 43. Qxb8 Rfxg2+ 44. Kh1 (44. Kh3 R2g4 45. Qf8+ Kh5 46. Qg7 Rh4#) Rg1+ 45. Kh2 R5g2+ 46. Kh3 Bg4+ 47. Kh4 g5# .
In the subline 46.Qg7 is just a waste of a move , how about Qf2 to intercept Rh4 , then Bf1+ , Kh2 (forced the bishop is immune) , Rh4+ , Qxh4 , Kxh4 (or Rg2+ , Qxg2 , Rxg2) either way wins the queen , black is a R+P up and will still win its just a more stubborn resistance .|
|Dec-10-12|| ||MountainMatt: <gregtebble: Surely black is winning after 24...cd! and 25 Na4 loses to Qxa4 or am I missing something?>|
Yeah, I'm wondering about that too. Black definitely wins material in the line that seems most likely (to me) to be played - 25...Qxa4 26. Rxg4 Bxg4 27. Qxg4 cxd3 28. Qe6+, and here I'm not sure if the best white has is simply forking the Bishop on b6, or if he has a mating net after 28...Rf7. It looks like he might, but I can't see it!
|Dec-11-12|| ||al wazir: <BlackSheep>: You're right about 46. Qg7. I found the line you described after I posted, but I didn't bother posting it because I figured no one was interested.|
|Dec-11-12|| ||Peligroso Patzer: < *** A good game *** >|
Based on a quick play-through, some of the moves seem passing strange, to the point I have to wonder if the move score is correct.
|Dec-11-12|| ||BlackSheep: <al wazir> Interested ? haha you should know that scrutinizing improvements is a staple diet here . I'm surprised Abdel Irada didnt pick you up on it when he scanned his watchful eye over your variations .|
|Dec-08-13|| ||offramp: FIRST! Tomorrow there might be some comments on this game based on the bizarre idea of a chessgames.com birthday.|
