|Feb-04-04|| ||thesonicvision: this game exemplifies what a true sacrifice really is:
losing material to gain a huge positional advantage, WITHOUT any
material compensation being necessary.
it doesn't hurt to get some material
back, but it's not necessary.
|Jan-17-05|| ||themindset: crazy game, and interestingly crafty does not even recommend taking the white queen... the sac was instantly recognized as correct by the computer. amazing. |
|Jan-17-05|| ||delterp: Wonderful game by Ashley. Of course one always evaluates the ramifications of allowing a queen capture, but it showed creativity to follow through.
However, a question. White has a winning position when the smoke has cleared at move 23. But why 23) c3?
Does not 23) Nh7 win on the spot? The thought being to push the dangerous g pawn to a queen. Black must shed further material to avoid this. |
|Jan-17-05|| ||Milo: Delterp, 23.Nh7 Nxf7 seems problematic, unless I've been smoking the ganj too much. |
|Mar-06-08|| ||Riverbeast: Nice game from the Ashman|
|May-02-08|| ||mate2900s: who ever said maurice was a positional player|
|Jun-15-09|| ||tranquilsimplicity: WOW! This is one of the TRUEST SACRIFICES i have ever encountered! I could not see any clear advantage for White. This is Chess at it's best...Well Played Maurice. You have a new fan!!|
|Oct-24-09|| ||Eisenheim: gotta go with Mo here. Nice sac.|
|Aug-18-11|| ||RuneFriborg: I've run this through Rybka3 and we haven't been able to find any serious flaws in whites play. 16... Nxd2 is simply a game-losing mistake from Weeramantry|
|Aug-18-11|| ||Strongest Force: Mr. A was all-over Sunil like white on rice.|
|Aug-18-11|| ||Beautiful.LMS: This is a nice game by White, but his opponent got a little payback down the road.|
Ashley vs Weeramantry, 1998
|Jul-12-17|| ||tpstar: Great game by White, although Black's QR on b7 was unconventional to say the least.|
The White Knights dominated.
