|Feb-06-05|| ||chesscookie: 33.Ne6+!!..What a find. |
|Feb-07-05|| ||maddy: how about 29.Bf6 ?? |
|Feb-07-05|| ||Cyphelium: <maddy> 29. f6 xf6 30. xf6 xh3! doesn't seem so clear. |
|Oct-09-11|| ||Sularus: love that pun! =)|
|Oct-09-11|| ||abuzic: 33.Rxf7+! Nxf7 34.Rh7 Qg4 35.Ne6+ Kg8 36.Rxg7+ Kh8 37.Rh7#|
|Oct-09-11|| ||Nullifidian: <chesscookie: 33.Ne6+!!..What a find.>|
It looks to me like 33. xf7+! wins faster.
33. xf7+ xf7 (g8?? 34. xg7#} 34. h7 ( xg7#) g4 (e6 35. xg7+ e7 36. xf7#) 35. e6+ g8 36. xg7+ h8 37. h7#
|Oct-09-11|| ||Achilles87: How is this for epic?
|Oct-09-11|| ||hallu45: I think the pun come's from here :
|Oct-09-11|| ||voyager39: That was played 23 years ago!
The longevity of Anand and his smooth transition from the classical to computer era is unmatched in chess history.
Pity Jeff Sonas stopped his work beyond 2004.
|Oct-09-11|| ||Ratt Boy: <abuzic> and <Nullifidian>: in your line, after 35.e6+, xe6 36.xe6 leaves W with a and s for and . Not too shabby, but not nearly as clear as the crush that forced Babu to resign.|
|Oct-09-11|| ||abuzic: <Ratt Boy:> but after 33.Rxf7+! Nxf7 34.Rh7 Qg4 35.Ne6+ now if <35...Qxe6> then 36.Qxg7#.
<Nullifidian:> has shown some variations to other moves but surely thought this variation was easy to spot.|
|Oct-09-11|| ||HeMateMe: Great pun. Or, "Babu Booie", with a nod to Howard Stern.|
|Oct-09-11|| ||cunctatorg: Why not 18... Nxe4?
I think about 19. Nxe4 Qxe4 20. c3!? Nd3 21. Rcd1 Nc5 22. Rde1 Qc6 23. Bxe7 etc. What's your opinion about the first move and this variation?
|Oct-09-11|| ||scormus: <33 Ne6+> was enough to force immediate 1-0, but IMO it's a blunt instrument way to win compared with Rxf7+!|
|Oct-09-11|| ||voyager39: Similar fatal knight move 24.Nf5 in the game below
Anand vs M Apicella, 1984
Why it caught my attention was because its the oldest Anand game in the Chessgames database...played 27 years ago!
|Oct-09-11|| ||parmetd: Best tag line!|
|Oct-09-11|| ||SugarDom: Thank you, thank you.
Not had a game pun of the day for quite some time.
Of course, you all remember Arnie the terminator's tag line?
|Oct-09-11|| ||Chicago Chess Man: I think a better pun would have been "You's a very bad Anand! Very bad!"|

|Oct-09-11|| ||Nullifidian: <abuzic: <Ratt Boy:> but after 33.Rxf7+! Nxf7 34.Rh7 Qg4 35.Ne6+ now if <35...Qxe6> then 36.Qxg7#. <Nullifidian:> has shown some variations to other moves but surely thought this variation was easy to spot.>|
Exactly my thinking. The whole point of 34... g4 was to stop an immediate 35. xg7#. If Black allowed the queen to be decoyed on the very next move, then it would undo what was gained by putting the queen on g4 in the first place.
|Oct-09-11|| ||Jose Ortiz Elias: 30. ..., Qxh3 is the refutation of 29. Bf6.|
|Oct-10-11|| ||kevin86: I really don't know what to say here;I'm afraid to be called "a velly bad man,velly bad-with a finger waving in front of my face.|
Funny,I have a craving for Pakistani food.
