|Jun-02-03|| ||drukenknight: okay so what is wrong w/ 16...fxg6? |
|Jun-02-03|| ||Bears092: 17. Ne7+ Kh8 18. Ng6 mate. |
|Jun-02-03|| ||drukenknight: yuck, what if the N comes back out to f6? |
|Jun-02-03|| ||drukenknight: bears on 16...Nf6 what are you saying is the line? |
|Jun-02-03|| ||Bears092: 17. Nxg5.
- If the f6 knight moves, mate on h7.
- If you take the queen we have the same mate as my last note. - Otherwise, we play 18. Nxf6+ and 19. Qh7 mate next move.
- That only leaves us 17...Kh8, so that 18. Nxf6 doesn't come with check. Then we can play 18. Ne7 where blacks position totally falls apart. For example, after 18...Bc5 (try to find something more useful for black its tought) 19. Bxf7 Black must give up his queen or else 20. Qxh7+ Nxh7 21. Ng6 mate.
Am I right, Crafty?
|Jun-02-03|| ||drukenknight: 16...Nf6 17 Nxg5 Qxg5 maybe I am missing something, it has been long day. |
|Jun-02-03|| ||Bears092: Unless queens can suddenly jump over pieces, you're missing something. |
You just moved the Knight to f6, thus making it rather difficult to have the queen go from d8 to g5 in one move.
A long day indeed.
|Jun-02-03|| ||THE GENERAL: < Bears092: Unless queens can suddenly jump over pieces, you're missing something.>|
A FEW MONTHS AGO PEOPLE WERE SAYING ALEKHINE WAS ALLOWED TO DO ANYTHING HE FLET LIKE WHEN HE PLAYED EXHIBITIONS.
|Jun-20-03|| ||MAHENDRA JOSHI: it was a wonderful skirmish |
|Aug-27-03|| ||The Backward Pawn: I love blacks final pawn structure |
|Aug-27-03|| ||ughaibu: How about 19....d5 20.Bd5 Be6 21.Be6 Rf6 22.Nf7 Rf7 23.Bf7 Nf6? |
|Aug-27-03|| ||sleepkid: ...it leaves black down the exchange, and about to go down another piece (or exchange) after the simple 24. Re1 (threatening to queen)|
...but it does keep Black in the game! ;-) No. . . the situation is pretty much hopeless.
|Aug-27-03|| ||ughaibu: Re1 Ne8 only the exchange and a pawn down, if you were NN wouldn't you carry on and get your money's worth? |
|Aug-27-03|| ||sleepkid: ...actually the pawns would be even. However, with that unwieldy tripled pawn structure (which actually white does best not too touch and probably should lock. If Ne8 then white plays g4! and then can create mating threats on the h-file after bringing the other rook there via d1 and d3), and the king stuck in the corner, and the exchange down, with a threatening white pawn on e7, and a rook that can't leave the back rank, leaving me with only one active piece, a dark squared bishop which really doesn't have anything useful to do. . . against Alekhine. . . |
. . . yeah, I'd probably resign. I would only feel like I was getting my money's worth if I was enjoying it, and I'd only enjoy it if I had a chance.
. . . I like to say that one of the signs of a good chess player is knowing when to resign.
|Aug-27-03|| ||ughaibu: Okay, I agree about the resigning. |
|Aug-27-03|| ||crafty: 19. ... d5 20. xg6+ g8 21. xd5+ e6 22. xe6+ (eval 12.16; depth 17 ply; 500M nodes)|
|Mar-02-06|| ||McCool: 16. d5 is a pretty cool move.|
|Oct-05-06|| ||Phony Benoni: NN never learned: Mieses vs NN, 1900|
|Jul-31-07|| ||syracrophy: Alekhine - NN
The game that shows how can a single mistake on the 6th move <6...0-0??> was more than enough to leave black with a hopeless game
1. e4 e5 2. f3 c6 3. c4 c5 4. c3 f6 5. d4 exd4 6. O-O O-O?? <Surprisingly, the decisive mistake. Correct was 6...Nxe4 7.cxd4 d5! 8.dxc5 dxc4 with equality> 7. cxd4 b6 <7...Be7 8.d5 Nb8 9.e5 Ne8 10.Nc3 > 8. d5! <The start of black's asphyxiation. This was more precise than 8.e5? d5!=> 8...e7 <The black knights have no good central squares and must walk back> 9. e5 e8 <The options are not better:
a) 9...Nh5? the worst of all, since 10.g4 wins the piece
b) 9...Ne4 10.Qe2 Nc5 11.b4! Na6 12.Bg5! <12...Nxb4? 13.d6!>
c) 9...Ng4 10.h3 Nxf2 <10...Nh6 11.d6! Ng6 12.Bxh6 gxh6 13.Nc3, followed bye 14.Ne4> 11.Rxf2 Bxf2 12.Kxf2 with a lot of advantage>
10. d6! <Now the queenside pieces are buried forever. Now 10...Ng6 loses outright to 11.Bg5 <Forcing the desperate 11...Nf6>> 10... cxd6 11. exd6 g6 12. g5! f6 13. c3 h6 <Forced, since the threat was 14.Nd5> 14.c2! hxg5 <Other defenses are also useless:
a) 14...Kh8 15.Bxf7! Rxf7 16.Qxg6 Rf8 17.Bh4 Qe8 18.Qd3! followed by 19.Rfe1 and 20.Ne5 with a decisive attack
b) 14...Kh7 15.Bxf7! Rxf7 16.Ne5! winning material>
15.xg6 h7 16. d5!! h8 <If 16...fxg6 17.Ne7+ Kh8 18.Nxg6#> 17.e7! xe7 <Black's position's completely hopeless. 17...Qe8 18.Ne5! Nf6 19.Bxf7 Qd8 20.Nf5! Rg8 21.Qh7+! Kxh7 22.Bg6+ Kh8 23.Nf7#> 18.dxe7 fxg6 19. e5! <Stronger than 19.exf8=Q+ Nxf8 20.Nxg5. Black resigns because after 19...d5 20.Nxg6+ Kg8 21.Bxd5+ Be6 22.Bxe6+ Rf7 23.Ne5 they suffer terrible material loss> 1-0
|Sep-19-07|| ||PAWNTOEFOUR: great game!!......the final combination was worth playing over the game!|
|Dec-22-08|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: Beside the deadly attack by white: nice tripled pawns ;)|
|Jan-04-09|| ||WhiteRook48: another Alekhine sacrificial game|
|Mar-12-09|| ||dwavechess: 15/19 Concur with Rybka 3 w32 D. at 3 min. per move for Alekhine|
|Jun-05-10|| ||tpstar: Wow, this was GOTD and later a Daily Puzzle back in 2003 when the site had much less traffic.|
The brilliance of Alekhine.
|Jan-28-11|| ||redorc19: brilliant!!!!|
