|Jul-03-11|| ||psmith: <DrMAL> PPS: And of course thanks for your Herculean labors.|
|Jul-03-11|| ||DrMAL: <psmith:> Very good point. I left out the repetition you give because it requires both players to want a draw. I assume that neither side knows in advance that the best outcome is a draw and that both players are playing to win. |
If white was only trying for a draw he could insist on 31.Rge1, very true. In which case black could play an alternate variation, such as 31...g6. Such a move gives black less chance and still leads to a draw, but neither side knows this yet! ;-)
<An Englishman:> Admittedly I did not know about this newer "forced mate" only that Karpov had analyzed it extensively and concluded it was a draw. Who knows, maybe someone will find a flaw in the line above or another move 22 for black that somehow wins. For now, I am convinced GM Müller's move 22...a5 leads to a draw, provided both sides play magnificently. Black has plenty of room for small error resulting in loss as well, cheers.
|Jul-07-11|| ||prithviraj: @nimh
if thats the case...then logically today's top 10 or 20 players are strongest players of history of chess up till now
according to me, i think it is very difficult to say who is most ''talented player'' of all time
|Jul-07-11|| ||nimh: Fischer, Karpov and Kasparov at their peaks were stronger than an average top 10 player today. But the average level of among top 10, 20, 30 and so on has definitely risen over time.|
|Jul-20-11|| ||psmith: I think we should go back at some point to a line that Karsten Muller doesn't much pursue, but which was after all suggested by Karpov:|
22. Kc1 Bf5!?
|Jul-24-11|| ||DrMAL: <psmith> Good idea, I'd like to see what you come up with. I already analyzed a variation that definitely draws (finding a flaw in GM Müller's analysis). The line I posted even finessed an early tempo for black (using the move you questioned 29...Bg3). I sent the analysis to Karsten. It's probably the best option anyway (D3b3 with 28.Rhe1! instead of 28.Rde1) but it's interesting to show a second option that draws too, cheers.|
|Jul-25-11|| ||DrMAL: "Many thanks for the PGN file. I have taken a closer look at the whole analysis and think now that Morphy's spectacular sacrifice probably only leads to a draw, but one can not be sure of course. I am preparing an Endgame Corner with the new analysis including your discovery. Maybe the readers can find a win...|
|Jul-28-11|| ||psmith: <DrMAL> Cool!|
|Sep-28-11|| ||TheoNov: Some early moves on each side seem flawed. But, hey, that just spoils the fun!|
1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 f5?! Is this counter-gambit sound? Probably not.
Instead, 4. dxe5 fxe4 5. Ng5 . Why not?

4. .. fxe4 5. Nxe4 d5?! (Picking a fight, but 5. .. Nf6 seems more solid.)

Playing right into Black's hands. The best response to 5. .. d5 is the knight sacrifice, which gives White a solid advantage: 6. Nxe5! dxe4 7. Qh5+ g6 8. Nxg6 hxg6 9. Qxg6+ Kd7 10. Qf5+ Ke8 11. Qe5+ Be6 12. Qxh8. True, Black may gets some dynamic compensation, e.g., 12. .. Qe7 13. Qe5 Bg7 14. Qxe4 Nf6 15. Qe3 Ng4 16. Qf4 Nc6 17. c3 Kd7 18. Be2 Bh6 19. Qg3 Bxc1 20. Rxc1 Nf6 (20. .. Rg8 21. d5!)) 21. Qe3 and Black has run out of steam.

You / Your improvements have been mentioned by Karsten Müller in the latest Endgame Corner (dd November 16, 2011, <The Riddle of Bird vs. Morphy Redux.>)

(also) Extensive analysis of this game ...
|Nov-16-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: http://www.chesscafe.com/text/skitt...
I don't think this is the same articles as the above.
|Nov-16-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: See the kibitz of mine that begins:
<<May-17-06 IFE Master AJ: 17...Rxf2!!! might win by force.>>
For some of my analysis.
|Nov-16-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: AND ... if you are lucky enough, and own a copy of the program, < "ChessMaster, 10th Edition," << > ... ... ... |
you can open the program, go to ---> <learn>, then go to ---> <academy> and then, ---> <<Larry Christiansen's Attacking Chess.>> (This game is the first one that is analyzed - after a brief introduction.)
I re-watched this whole video lesson this AM, its MOST enjoyable!
|Nov-16-11|| ||JoergWalter: <LMAJ: I re-watched this whole video lesson this AM, its MOST enjoyable!>|
Have you taken notes on how to do a video?
|Nov-16-11|| ||TheFocus: <JoergWalter> <LMAJ> <I re-watched this whole video lesson this AM, its MOST enjoyable!>|
<Have you taken notes on how to do a video?>
Now why would <AJ> take notes from a hack like Karsten Mueller? Mueller is no more than an IM, right? Just a noted world-class author aand columnist, nowhere in the same class as <AJ>, the unofficial World Champion.
Maybe Karsten should take notes from <AJ>'s videos?
As <chessbase.com> recently said of <AJ>'s videos, "Quite possible the best videos on the Internet today. Why <LIFEMaster AJ Goldsby> has not been given a FM title is beyond us. Maybe an investigation should be done? There have been many injustices done in chess, but this is one of the strangest. Hopefully, an interested outside party will give this GM, I mean, LIFEMaster, his due."

Again, this user shows a lot, many parts of his anatomy ...
and also his ignorance.
According to ChessBase and FIDE ... Karsten Mueller is a GM.

He sure is, but he's still unworthy of notice in the land of Florida Fischer.
Go crush another 700 player and tell us how great you are or something, will you?
So <TheFocus> slipped up. Does that rock your world? Does it make you feel better that you find a small mistake and say "nyah nyah" like a three year-old?
|Nov-17-11|| ||I play the Fred: Mueller may be a GM now, but is he an LM? There are a lot more GMs than LMs in the world - you tell me which title is easier to earn.|
|Nov-17-11|| ||King Death: <Fred> That settles it. Can I get my LM title if I start playing again? Maybe I'll just go for GM instead, even though it's nothing to brag about compared to LM.|
|Nov-17-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: I thought no modern GM would ever use this line ... |

That is what you thought. Looks you are behind.
|Nov-17-11|| ||TheFocus: <AJ> I know Karsten Mueller is a GM. You ever heard of sarcasm. At your expense? I see you failed the test.|
If you could translate what I wrote, you would be able to see that I actually have a lot of respect for Mueller.
<world class author and columnist>
|Nov-17-11|| ||TheFocus: <Again, this user shows a lot, many parts of his anatomy ... and also his ignorance.>|
<AJ> I have forgotten more chess history than you ever knew. At least, I have made a lot of positive contributions to chess.
What have you done?
Crappy webpages and crappy analysis? As one member called it, "<AJ>'s cut-and-paste, diarrhea of analysis."
And remember, you gave two books I was involved in rave reviews.
But again, you gave us more exclamation marks than we deserved.
|Mar-31-13|| ||zebekias: Morphy's 5. ...d6 seems to be innacurate because 6. Nxe5 dxe4 7.
