Nov-26-11  AnalyzeThis: If you know this game, you can beat a lot of good players with the Qh4, Bh6, Ng5 idea.
Jun-01-12  Wyatt Gwyon: Bisguier opened up that kingside like a can of Spam. Piggybacking on <AnalyzeThis>, I find that several thematic kingside attacking ideas pay amazingly frequent dividends against careless Modern Defense players.

  FSR: This game really ought to be more famous. An amazing crush of a world-class player. It looks like a game that Tal would play in a simul.

  RookFile: This one was a blitzkrieg.
May-08-15  mruknowwho: White's king's rook is like the alligator that can't get enough food.
May-08-15  waustad: Here is a time he didn't "Misfire."

  RookFile: Sure. Bisguier could be very aggressive, with things like the 4 pawns attack against the king's indian. A perfectly correct way of playing chess.
May-08-15  newzild: Amusing how the same rook sacrifice is "sacrificed" twice on f6.

  kevin86: Odd sequence: if the bishop is not takeb, mate comes at g7, but not h7. When the bishop IS taken, mate comes at h7, but not g7.
May-08-15  DaGreenster: going through this game made me actually laugh. i wonder how bent larsen felt during that game... rather helplessly chuckling to himself as he realized the impending doom?
May-08-15  rollingrook5: Beautiful chess here from Bisguier. However, as a Modern enthusiast, I can't help but wonder what might have given Larsen a better game.

Imho, and of course firmly standing on the shoulders of the last 50 years' worth of giants, it seems 3... d5 could offer better chances against this move order.

Or, at least, after 3...d6, maybe delaying Nf6 and going for 4... c6 or a6, with b5 and Bb7 and a c5 break to come? This way, at least, the Nf6 never gets tempoed away by White's e5.

Any thoughts?

  Check It Out: What a brutal attack.

It looks as though <FSR> submitted the pun, Art of War, a couple of years back. Do individual games get multiple pun submissions? If so, how/who chooses which pun gets used?

  morfishine: <FSR> No doubt, this game is just terrific and really should be more famous. A really great game! Though the following game is not similar at all, I was reminded of this, due to the brevity: Larsen vs Spassky, 1970

<rollingrook5> Well, if one wants to stay within the original concept of Pirc, then <6...Bg4> is the move (instead of 6...Nbd7)

if 15...Bxg7 16.Qh7++
if 15...Kxg7 16.Qh7++
if 15...Re8 16.Qxh8++

3...d5 would have been the move. First mentioned by Euwe I believe.

Aug-16-15  Retireborn: In his book Bisguier entitles this game "Miniaturizing a Great Dane".

This may be my all-time favourite title for a chess game :)

Oct-03-16  Jimmy720: Extremely instructive attacking play

Exactly. Bisguier missed this simple ending, it seems.
