|Dec-08-05|| ||JG7: Nice game by Przepiorka|
|Nov-28-06|| ||netlava: Perhaps 25...Nc8 would have been better for black.|
|Nov-28-06|| ||Isolated Pawn: Can't believe this pun hadn't been used before. Nice one.|
|Nov-28-06|| ||alphee: <Isolated Pawn:> I loved the game but totally missed the pun, can you help? Thanks.|
|Nov-28-06|| ||Total Blunder: Besides "Game of the Day", Chessgames.com shoul also publish the "Blunder of the Day". Well, you probably know why am I thinking about this today...|
|Nov-28-06|| ||Phony Benoni: Przepiorka certainly had his days. He had a game with Patay which dwarfs even this one for fireworks. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be in the database.|
|Nov-28-06|| ||thegoodanarchist: <alphee>
The pun is based on the phrase "peace offering", which is a gift offering to an enemy to resolve conflict between two groups or two people.
If Black accepts one of White's two "piece offerings", the game will end quickly.
|Nov-28-06|| ||Rubenus: Eeh, total blunder, wat do you mean?
And what does everyone mean with 'the pun'? Thanks.
|Nov-28-06|| ||kevin86: First white sacs a bishop twice,then a rook-and finally a queen,though the latter sac is at the expense of a KING.|
Great blunders of the past:Custer-"Over there I think those are friendly Indians".
Hitler:"Let's take the city of Stalingrad! It should be done without too much trouble".
Detroit Tiger pitchers:when they threw to any base but home plate (on a piotch)in the world series vs St Louis.
Can any chess blunder compare with these?
|Nov-28-06|| ||Peligroso Patzer: Very nice game. It appears that 26. Bxf5! wins outright. I cannot see any way for Black to defend after that sacrifice. 30. Bh6+ is an even more beautiful sacrifice, and how gracious of Steiner to play into the more elegant mate (rather than the comparatively prosaic 30. ... Kg8/h8 31. Qxf8#).|
|Nov-28-06|| ||The17thPawn: Enjoyable game and quite enlightening for me as I have never seen the Zukertort Opening. My German's definitely bad but doesn't that mean Sugar Cake? Well it certainly proved a piece of cake for Przepiorka.|
|Nov-28-06|| ||LuckyBlunder: Dunno how's your german but one was polish and the other hungarian :D|
|Nov-28-06|| ||The17thPawn: <LuckyBlunder> - Thanks but I was referring to the Opening name of "Zukertort". I believe there was a very strong player by this name in the mid 1800's|
|Nov-28-06|| ||Phony Benoni: Here's Johnny!
|Nov-28-06|| ||shalgo: Zukertort lost to Steinitz in what is generally regarded as the first official World Championship match (1886).|
|Nov-28-06|| ||mrknightly: 24.Bh3 is one of the most subtle sacrafices I have ever seen..."Here take my bishop and come into my King's court..." Only to draw the Queen away so the rook and dark bishop can penetrate. I would never have seen that over the board.|
|Nov-28-06|| ||black knight c6: If you think that's a subtle sacrifice, then check the many games of Mikhail Tal
Half the sacrifices he made had absolutely no mating attack in site whatsoever. 1/4 seem to have been made on innitiative and intuitive feeling only.
But brilliant combanativie play by Przepiorka here. very nice bishop play/sacs!|
|Nov-28-06|| ||TTLump: <mrknightly: 24.Bh3 is one of the most subtle sacrafices I have ever seen...> I completely agree. when I first saw that move, I was quite startled, but after some analysis, it didn't take long to see the idea behind it. It always amazes me how many moves are so obvious only AFTER I see them played!|
|Nov-28-06|| ||TTLump: this game is an object lesson in a couple of basic principles, King safety and file control. |
Black should have played 24 ... Qd8, instead of opening up the space in front of his King with f5? And then on the very next move he misses an opportunity to restrict the white rook's control of the e-file with 25 ... Be5, instead scurrying over to the Queen side with 25 ... Qb5?
nevertheless, brilliant play by white!
|Nov-28-06|| ||jackmandoo: I dont agree with TTLump, I think the two principals this game is all about is Numkber 1: and Number 16: These are important. Also I am missing my refridgerator, if anyone knows where it is please let me know. Dont call me or post me a message; just whisper the location of the refridgerator into a stray kittens ear, your words will find me, in due time my dear...in due time.....|

|Nov-30-06|| ||The17thPawn: <jackmandoo> You come off as a complete madman but I can't resist reading your posts. I guess lunacy like infancy is contagious.|
|Dec-01-06|| ||alphee: <thegoodanarchist> Thanks ;-)|
|Dec-01-06|| ||alphee: <kevin86:> and a couple of other: (1) Stalin who 1 week before the germans attacked thought they wouldn't not and acted accordingly. Took him days before he recovered and acted. (2) the IBM founder who said something like "there is barely a need for 2 computers in the world" ...|
|Apr-08-09|| ||AugustAle: a nice piece of Przepiorka|
