  keypusher: Nice counterpart to yesterday's game!
Mar-29-07  teak poker: Hemingway's title was a quote from the Book of Ecclesiastes.
Mar-29-07  Confuse: Most interesting part to me was how many times Ulf rejected gaining pawns to advance his king to the center where he could defend. Very calm and cool.
Mar-29-07  euripides: <confuse> I think there are tactical reasons why Andersson doesn't take the d pawn. 31.Rxd5 runs into 31...Rc1+ 32.Kh2 Bxf2, and 32.Rxd5 runs into 32.. Rc1+ 33.Re1 Rxe1+ 34.Kxe1 Bxf2+.
Mar-29-07  Fisheremon: White missed 15.a3 with a quicker win.

  kevin86: Didn't Ulf Andersson play defense for the Rangers? lol.

A good game-after all,about any win over the Tigerman is.

White takes his rook for bishop advantage and wins with it.

Mar-29-07  Sibahi: I don't understand the pun.
Mar-29-07  alshatranji: Sibahi: The pun is a raference to Hemingway's novel The Sun Also Rises.
Mar-29-07  alshatranji: What about 29. Rxe4?

  Gypsy: I gues this game is ammong less aclaimed Petrosian x-change sacrifices.
Mar-29-07  alshatranji: 29. Rxe4 seems to win a piece. Any feedback?

  Gypsy: <alshatranji: 29. Rxe4 seems to win a piece. Any feedback?>Yes, but it is a poorly placed piece for 2 pawns; eg, ...29.Rxe4 dxe4 30.Be7 Rc2 31.Rf1 Rxb2... So, given the two materially about equal continuations, my guess is that Andersson chose the one where he felt better about his piece play.
Mar-29-07  sambo: <The pun is a raference to Hemingway's novel The Sun Also Rises.> and a reference to the fact the yesterday's game of the day was an Andersson loss
Mar-29-07  alshatranji: Thank you Gypsy. This makes sense.
Mar-29-07  Fast Gun: An Ulf in "Sheeps's clothing" an interesting game between two players who both have similar styles of play and limitless patience !!
Mar-29-07  Confuse: <euripides> oh, i c. i assumed they were purely positional. thanks for the enlightenment

  Mateo: <euripides: <confuse> I think there are tactical reasons why Andersson doesn't take the d pawn. 31.Rxd5 runs into 31...Rc1+ 32.Kh2 Bxf2> You are right. I would add this: 31.Rxd5?! Rc1+ 32.Kh2 Bxf2 33.Rxf2! Nxf2 34.Nxf5! with an equal game.

  Mateo: <alshatranji: 29. Rxe4 seems to win a piece. Any feedback?> That's an interesting suggestion. Look at 29.Rxe4!? fxe4 (the best to keep a passed pawn on the d file) 30.Bb4 Rc2 31.Rf1 Rxb2, the position is rather unclear. Black has a strong compensation: 1) 2 pawns for the Knight 2) a passed pawn on the d file 3) The White Knight is really misplaced 4) B+R tie down the White Rook to the defence of the f pawn.
Apr-02-07  Atking: <Fisheremon: White missed 15.a3 with a quicker win.> What do you mean? If 15. ...Ba5 Do you intend to play another move than 16.Qg4? For example 16.Ng3.
Apr-02-07  Fisheremon: <Atking: <Fisheremon: White missed 15.a3 with a quicker win.> What do you mean? If 15. ...Ba5 Do you intend to play another move than 16.Qg4? For example 16.Ng3.> I meant firstly the order of moves here was a bit subtle, e.g. if 15.Qg4 as in the game then Black could play 15...Ng6. Secondly after 15.a3 Ba5 16.Qg4 g6 17.Bg5 Bb6 18.Qh4 h6 19.Be2 and quite tedious for Black to play in that position.
Apr-03-07  Atking: <Fisheremon:> Thanks for your answer. I'm agree to put the question to the bishop first, but not convinced by 15.Qg4 Ng6. Still I understand that now Bb4 can move to e7 or f8, 16.f4 looks very good for White. Few months ago I drew a game against a strong japanese player, on black side, with this system, and I'm very impressed by the way Andresson handle the opening.

If 16.f4, then Black has 16...Qh4 and the advantage now less than a pawn. So 15.a3! forces Black to decide with his French Bishop as you could see.
Mar-04-11  Wyatt Gwyon: According to the database, these two squared off 14 times, with only three games lasting more than 20 moves. I wonder what lit a fire in Ulf for this one.
Mar-15-11  wordfunph: this was Tigran Petrosian's last game, where for the first time in his life he lost to Ulf Andersson.
