|Jun-17-03|| ||Honza Cervenka: Very nice game. |
|Sep-30-03|| ||rochade18: I think that Chigorin didn't expect that Black would push his e and f pawn so quickly. |
|Sep-30-03|| ||drukenknight: DId zuckertort miss a mate in two or am I hallucinating again? |
|Oct-01-03|| ||rochade18: well you have to say what move, because I ve not the time to search for it! |
|Feb-10-04|| ||Whitehat1963: Not sure I see a mate in two, but that King sure takes a long walk before he finally abdicates. |
|Mar-02-04|| ||Egghead: Very nice. White must give up his queen, for if 30.Kxd4 then 30. ... Qh4+. |
|Jan-14-05|| ||offramp: The clever move 24...Bd3+ might be quicker. I can't see any missed mate in two... and after all these years...|
This was Zukertort's first game in the massive London tournament of 1883. He started off with five wins - all as black for some reason.
This game was played on the 26th April 1883.
These games are fascinating. It is strange to see how often Zukertort makes use of far-advanced black pawns in his games.
|Jan-19-05|| ||ksadler: Yes, this is a very nice game by Black. The pushes of the e- and f-pawns were most impressive, and once black's pawn got to g2 the king hunt was natural. |
|Jan-19-05|| ||Hanada: <drunkenknight> If you are talking about 18)...Qg4 as the mate in 2, it isn't there as :|
18... Qg4 19. Nxf3 and black can't take back because his queen is pinned against the white queen. Therefore, black's 20th move might be Be2 because his bishop is now hanging. After this white can play h3 chasing the queen away and then Bxe7 exchanging down material. Hope that helped.
|Oct-14-15|| ||Knight13: 12. Nb3 is better than 12. Qe2-13. Nb3.|
|Sep-04-16|| ||Master M: A game like chopping meat with very sharp knives, wow!|
|May-14-17|| ||rtitle: Nice game.
Chigorin's 6.d5 seems dubious. 6.Re1 Nd6 would lead to normal Berlin positions.
8.dxc6? was a mistake. Instead 8.Nxe5 cxd5 9.Qxd5 dissolves the center pawns and is equal. Zuckertort's 8...f6! holding the e5 pawn was good. Black got the better of the opening with center control and better development too.
11...Nf7! excellent - preparing the advance of the f pawn.
15.Nfd4? Necessary was 15.Bxe7, though Black is still better.
Simpler than 15...f3 was 15...Bxc5 16.Nxc5 Qxd4 17.Nxb7 Qd5 winning a piece.
After 18...Ng5! White can't play 19.Bxe7 because 19...Nh3+ is forced mate. So White has to play 19.Nxf3.
20.Rd7 was to block the queen, but it is hopeless for White. Nice king hunt starting with 21...Nh3+.
