|May-28-10|| ||whiteshark: Cheers, <zooter>!|
|May-28-10|| ||YouRang: <YouRang><A stronger plan would be to create mate threats by pushing the black king against a wall with 90.Rc3+!>|
Well, that "stronger plan" I proposed would have been a stronger plan for *me* (at least one that I could understand).
Now that I've fed the game into the computer, it seems that white's plan was fine until of course 98.Kb1? which gave up the win.
Next time I might try doing the analysis *before* I post. :-\
|May-28-10|| ||ajk68: Way too easy for Friday.|
|May-28-10|| ||luzhin: 98.Kd1 is also winning. In fact, any legal move wins EXCEPT for 98.Kb1?? which allows the stalemate trick. The teenage Nimzovitch was quite a swindler.|
|May-28-10|| ||wals: Of course, Rb8, what else. I went for Rd8. Maybe next time.|
Rybka 3 1-cpu: 3071 mb hash: depth 30:
Black, down a pawn, blunders
+4.85 60...Rxf3. better, Rh8, +2.15.
White, up a Rook, blunders
=0.00 71.Kg5. better, Ke5, +4.91.
Black, down a rook,
+4.92 76...Rh6+. no better valued move available.
Black, Pawn for a Rook.
+(#9) 95...Ra6. better, Rh5, +6.05,
White, a Rook for a pawn, crashes,
=0.00 98.Kb1. better, Rbc4, or Rdc4,

to move 97...Rc8+
Rb4-c4 win in six
Rd4-c4 win in six
Kc2-d2 win in eight
Kc2-d3 win in eight
Kc2-d1 win in sixteen
|May-28-10|| ||apexin: I found it. It was way too easy for a friday puzzle.|
|May-28-10|| ||ohfluckaduck: Good fighting draw! Love Nimzovitch's play.|
|Apr-27-11|| ||Tigranny: Isn't 98.Kb1 a blunder because 98...Rb8 99.Rxb8 leads to stalemate?|
|Nov-07-11|| ||mslr45: 88...Rb7 and its draw sortly|
|Nov-07-11|| ||Sastre: If 88...Rb7, 89.Rd3+ Rb3 90.Rd1 still wins.|
|Jun-30-12|| ||Tigranny: I once had a game in which I planned to have a crazy rook but my opponent snatched it right away allowing me to be stalemated.|
|Mar-11-14|| ||kevin86: The Arthur Murray school of rook dancing.|
|Nov-19-14|| ||Yuri Stremel: The pun should be "You check me all night long"|
|Jun-05-15|| ||Check It Out: 98…Rb8 must have been rough for Post.|
|Jun-06-15|| ||Penguincw: Wow, another draw (so I guess I was wrong, and <Brit> was right).|
H Wolf vs Rubinstein, 1907
Anyway, 5 straight draws. :| I know, let's have a "Draw no-bet" for tomorrow's GOTD! I'm putting 5 cbs on 1-0. :)
|Jun-06-15|| ||RookFile: Nimzo was young when this was played. Interesting ending.|
|Jun-06-15|| ||morfishine: All in all, an intriguing opening - middlegame sequence of moves. A middlegame that seemed to go on and on|
The final theme has always fascinated me. I even pulled it off once at the club
|Jun-06-15|| ||kevin86: Funny finish,to say the least!|
|Jun-06-15|| ||goodevans: I've really enjoyed <draw week> and today's game was no exception despite white's last-move blunder.|
|Jun-06-15|| ||goodevans: P.S. And a truly excellent pun on the less common meaning of "evening".|
|Jun-06-15|| ||A.T PhoneHome: Eh, hasn't this been a GOTD before, with the same pun?|
Unless my mind fails me, of course. And I don't have any problems with games that get to be GOTD multiple times (it's inevitable here).
Interesting game it is, I admit! :)
|Sep-23-15|| ||The Kings Domain: :-) Good and unique game. Gotta love how white has black at the mercy of his rook. One can't help but yell, "Draw already!".|
|Nov-07-15|| ||abstract: May he rest in peace but I hate his style.. talking about nimzowitsch|
|Oct-04-16|| ||kotoslaw: Lomonosow 7-men endgame databases says: after 61.Kxh4 white win in 38 moves. The best answer for 61.Kxh4 is 61... Rf4+ (after this white mate in 38) and the second move for black listed in databases is 61... Rh3+ (after this white mate in 24)|
