|Dec-22-07|| ||Gypsy: <coolzadar: Does any know if Tal ever played the KG?> |
Tal vs P Trifunovic, 1963
Bronstein vs Tal, 1968
|Mar-05-08|| ||matingthreat: Wow, sac after sac to victory. When Moro is in fighting mood his imagination soars like few in modern chess.|
|Mar-05-08|| ||Gilmoy: I'm way below even <acirce>'s 2000 level, but I love playing KGA as Black. Se my profile page for the preening details.|
I dunno Anand's c6-d5 line, but it sure jammed White's K-side attack. Moro did well to maintain pressure, while Anand seemed to go astray, as others have noted: Rfc8 weakened the K-side, Nh5 and the "no escape" forced g6. Moro's sacs make perfect sense -- he's down 2 pawns, he must win by force. The N sac nets the 2 pawns back (so it's really only a 1-point additional investment -- in for a penny!); the B "sac" is a sham, really just a trade. So he's only paying 1 more "pawn" for (a) the double on Nd6 (b) forking g6 and (c) denuding Black's K. That's surely worth it (or he's already lost). The final exchange "sac" is also a sham, it's really R for NN, as the hapless Nh5 is still hanging (after g6). And finally, White could afford to end down a full R because Black's Ra8 is out of touch.
|Mar-05-08|| ||Alex Patkowski: Morozevich always plays an interesting game.|
|Apr-06-08|| ||Tomlinsky: Wonderfully creative play from Morozevich. It should be pointed out that this game was played at the Intel Moscow Quickplay Grand Prix.|
|Jun-01-08|| ||ezmerin: It's nice that Morozevich uses King's Gambit move 2. f4 in the opening and Queen's Gambit move 20. c4 in the middlegame and they are both played to remove the pawn obstacles in center. The bishop and rook pair do nice job too, overwhelming clumsy little rats on a8 and h5.|
I dream about tournament with Morozevich, Carlsen, Kamsky, Polgar, Shirov, Ivanchuk, Gelfand and Topalov in field. I believe it could result with uncompromising chess.
|Jan-10-09|| ||WhiteRook48: King's Gambit. I thought that was unpopular.|
|Feb-14-09|| ||WhiteRook48: EVERYONE likes the King's Gambit|
|Jun-27-09|| ||Everett: <ezmerin> 20.c4 had more to do with getting the LSB to c2 than clearing any pawns in the center.|
|Aug-12-09|| ||AbhinavAsthana: I am seeing 7...Bb4 for the first time in this line although I have played bishop's gambit quite a lot. 7...Bd6 is what I thought was popular.|
I should point out here is that 3...Nf6 followed by c6 and d5 is the strongest continuation for black. 3...Qh4+ just looks good but black can only hope for equality because of the bad position of the queen.
|Sep-06-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 28...gxf5 29 Rg6+
28...Qxf5 29 Re5+
|Feb-06-10|| ||Talis: <who>: "I would have played 4.e5 forcing 4...Ng8 with a strong version of the Vienna gambit." Wrong idea. Black play 4....d5!|
|Apr-22-10|| ||hellopolgar: <WhiteRook48: 28...gxf5 29 Rg6+>|
then 29 g6!!! is the only move to win.
|Dec-03-10|| ||rustyj: Check out Judit Polgar v Veselin Topalov "Mexican Standoff" (Kings Gambit: Accepted. Bishop's Gambit)C33 played on Nov 30, 2010. She beats him and also adds a novelty move pointed out by Danny Rensch in his video on chess.com on 12/3/2010.|
|Jul-18-11|| ||DrMAL: Thought this was called the Jaenisch variation of KGA/Bishops but either way it is fun to see. Black would have been fine after 22...Nd5 the only good move here, but instead Anand blundered with 22...Nh5 and Morozevich took advantage of it brilliantly. Happy Birthday Alex!|
|Dec-30-11|| ||Rob Lob Law: People say that chess is dead because typical GM lines have been analysed to death and players are still in their home preparation at move 30 or even more. This leads to many draws and limits creativity. But then you have Morozevich. He plays the lines that no one else will, and the result is almost always exciting and creative chess. If there were just a few more players at the top level with the guts to play rare lines, then chess would not be in any danger of dying. Alas, as it stands there is only one Morozevich, and top level chess is boring to the point that it is unwatchable. You just see the same boring lines over and over and over. Oh, how I long to see Moro play in a world championship match. Maybe one day...|
|Jan-09-12|| ||Jeffsteeven: Why isn't a game of the day yet?|
|Mar-10-12|| ||ex0duz: ChessNoir has a video of this 'classic' game on Youtube!|
Here's the link.
Hopefully a part 2 will be added soon. Check out the channel, they have lots of good old chess videos between GM's and even WC's giving insightful commentary during their games, revealing their hopes and plans and why they made each move etc rather than your usual dry bland boring analysis. Chess should be brought back and made into this format imo.
|Apr-25-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Awesome game!
|Apr-25-12|| ||whiteshark: <21...Qb6!> according to the Fritz.|
|May-21-12|| ||Diogo Canavarro: <DRMal: Black would have been fine after 22...Nd5 the only good move here,>|
Wrong. After 22...Nd5 comes 23.Bxh7! Kxh7, 24. g6! and black is lost.
|May-21-12|| ||King Death: < Diogo Canavarro: <DRMal: Black would have been fine after 22...Nd5 the only good move here,>
Wrong. After 22...Nd5 comes 23.Bxh7! Kxh7, 24. g6! and black is lost.>|
First of all <DrMAL> (Alexandre Kretchetov) is a strong player himself and he deserves better than "Wrong..." especially when after 24.g6+ Black doesn't look lost at all if he plays 24...fg 25.Qh4+ Kg8 26.Ng6
Nf5 (26...Nf6 does lose after 27.Qh8+). I'd say that <DrMAL's> judgment was right.
|May-21-12|| ||Diogo Canavarro: <King Death>: I think you're right, my mistake i'm sorry. My analysis was supported by this video ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FuiC...) but it's clear now that they missed some good variations for black, for instance: |
23. Bxh7+ - Kxh7
24. g6+ - fxg6
25. Qf4+ - Kg8
26. Nxg6 - Nd7
27. Rxf7 - Kxf7
28. Rf1+ - Ke8
And the game is equal according to Fritz (0.00!). Thank you for the observation.
|Feb-15-13|| ||JimNorCal: The Grandmaster Magazine video covering the Intel Grand Prix features this game.
The live commentary by GM Danny King is great fun to watch!|
