Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-05-08  mack: A humiliating final position for Bisguier!

Given how easily the tactics begin thanks to the c-file pressure maybe 4...g6 is just too slow. 6...Qd7 might be suspect, too.

Aug-26-18  allenjackson: I appreciate a opponent who in the end game fights to the very end!... In this game when you dont have a single pawn and your opponent has five!... I believe you should show class!, face it!, your beat!
Aug-26-18  Retireborn: White was in time trouble (Informator) and Bisguier presumably just bashed his way to move 40. I would have been inclined to resign after 26.Nxf5 though.

Anybody know the tournament it's from? Annoying that Informator just puts "USA".

  perfidious: <retireborn>, Informator had that sometimes nettlesome habit of simply dumping everything which was played in American swisses under the <USA> heading.
Aug-26-18  Knightcarver: This game was played in the National Chess League team matches by telephone.
Aug-26-18  Retireborn: <Knightcarver> Thanks.

<Perfidious> Yes, it's annoying.

  catlover: Accordingo to Vekcevich's bio page, he was not only a grandmaster but also earned a Ph.D. He was later considered for a Nobel Prize in chemistry. Must have been a smart guy.

He seemed to quickly get a dominating position in this game.

  gawain: Dr. Vukcevich lived in Cleveland, Ohio, which is where I was born and raised. The resemblance ends there, as he (unlike me) was a grandmaster--and an all-around brilliant person.
Aug-26-18  Howard: Vukcevich played in the 1975 US championship, and that was the only one he took part in. It was no coincidence I'm sure that that year it took place in Oberlin, OH--less than two hours from where he lived.

Granted, the 1977 one was in Mentor, OH, which was even closer. But, he probably didn't qualify that year, or he may have just voluntarily declined his invitation. The 1975 edition was--keep in mind--a zonal year, so there was more at stake, obviously.

  sfm: <RookFile: Is it bad when you're down 5 pawns?> Are you crazy?? Even FOUR pawns is bad!
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <sfm> Are you crazy?? Even THREE pawns is bad!


Aug-26-18  dumbgai: Being down 3 pawns isn't so bad, just ask Bareev or Morozevich: Bareev vs Morozevich, 2002
Aug-26-18  Castleinthesky: Black should have resigned at move 25. Not much of a GOTD, many blunders and little brilliance.
