|Nov-18-04|| ||DanielBryant: Nice finish. |
|Nov-18-04|| ||tpstar: Yes and no - surely you noticed 27 ... R3g6?? 28. Qxh4 and White wins.|
Black played 27 ... R7g6 instead.
|Nov-19-04|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Marmaduke Wyvill was a pretty good player. According to Kmoch's Pawn Power In Chess, Wyvill was the first to appreciate the latent attacking potential of the c3,c4,d4,e4 and f3 pawn formation. However, he could have made his life a lot easier if he had played ...f5 as early as move 8. Incidentally, this game is probably better classified as 2.f4 Sicillian or an English. |

|Apr-26-06|| ||sneaky pete: Move 22 (3 seconds).|
|Jul-31-06|| ||keypusher: I don't know what Kmoch is talking about -- sounds like he is describing the White side of the Saemisch Nimzoindian. I think Wyvill's pawn formation is c4, d3, e3, f4, as in Reshevsky's win over Botvinnik in 1948 (with colors reversed). |
<offramp Oh-oh! The great player Parimarjan Negi has got lost somewhere in this game. Can you find him in under a minute? sneaky pete: Move 22 (3 seconds).>
Pretty damn clever, both of you. Took me months to figure that out.
|Jul-23-07|| ||smarterthanbobby: that f4 black pawn and the
lost tempo in whites bisop march that just gave black A file and move attack tempo as if black needed it.
seems to be the diffrence in what was
equal minus a stronger bisop for black
refering to the fight for center so many moves into it.
|Jan-24-09|| ||just a kid: Where did White go wrong?It seems that White let Black push at the kingside.|
|Jul-22-09|| ||Knight13: <just a kid> 12. f5 is not good.|
|Aug-12-12|| ||Bezlitosci: Black won here, so its attack may look well; however, it was white's blunder at the end that allowed victory. After 28th move black threatens mate with connected rooks, ex. 29...xh3 30.xh3 xh3 31.gxh3 xh3 mate. White's 29.Ne2 only helped black by moving away one of the defenders of h3 pawn. However, after 29.Kh1! black has nothing - now after 29...xh3 30.xh3 xh3 31.gxh3 xh3 black can shield himself with 32.h2.|
<just a kid> White made a mistake earlier in the game by playing 18.h4 f4 19.xg7 xg7. 18...f4 has a blocking effect on white pieces, and after 19...xg7 black has an attack on kingside with white pieces limited in their moves. Instead of 18.h4 black could have played 18.g3. Now 18...f4 doesn't work because of 19.xf4 and black queen is hanging, and after 18...xh6 19.xh6 f4 black doesn't really have a pressure on the kingside.
