|Feb-20-05|| ||Elrathia Kingi: I fail to understand: after 35.xe8+, why did Barbero not move h7? With both Rook and Queen threatening to mate on the back rank and the Queen threatened while white has no good followup check, it seems like a simple winning move. Can anybody help? |
|Feb-20-05|| ||justy: <Elrathia Kingi> How about 36.Nf6, and then if 36...Bxf6 37.Qe4+ winning the black Q. Or if 36...gxf6 37.Qf7+ with the same result. |
|Feb-20-05|| ||Elrathia Kingi: <justy>36.f6 xf6 37.e4+ h8 38.xb2? d1#|
or 36...gxf6 37.f7 h8 38.xb2? d1#
or 36...xf6 and white wins on material gains.
|Feb-20-05|| ||aw1988: This is a long game for NN, it makes a change from the usual 9-move-mate. |
|Feb-20-05|| ||percyblakeney: Barbero sure has played many games against NN, and he's got minus statistics... |
|Dec-22-08|| ||WhiteRook48: Go, NN!|
|Dec-22-08|| ||WhiteRook48: NN beat the barber.
I thought the longest NN game was NN vs Bacrot, 2005 (155 moves) Look it up yourself, I'm too lazy too look and find the link :)
And since barbers beat sheep, NN beat the master of Baaabaaatown.
|Dec-24-08|| ||WhiteRook48: how to beat Barbero|
|Jan-01-09|| ||WhiteRook48: a win against a barber. This guy, his opponent, has a weird name. He looks like a pretty good player, but how can you be good if you lost to NN?
Wait a minute. NN beat Alekhine, J H Saratt, Philidor, Lasker, etc. those were good players. NN seems to have picked up a winning streak. :)|
|Jan-01-09|| ||IT4L1CO: 35..Kh7 would have been a great move...|
|Mar-12-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 35...Kh7 would have been suicidal!|
|Mar-28-09|| ||WhiteRook48: wait, no it's not|
