|Apr-08-12|| ||DrywallRickshaw: Castle at 15... why??|
|Apr-08-12|| ||Gilmoy: For king safety :)|
|Apr-08-12|| ||Gilmoy: And sure enough, White's King was tackled in the end zone for a safety!|
|Apr-08-12|| ||b0ch0: And what about 0-0-0 instead of 0-0 ???|
|Apr-08-12|| ||rilkefan: I thought about 22.e5, planning to play Bc2 and put the rooks on open files on the kingside, but stockfish points out that while after 22...Qg6+ white can get away with 23.Kh1 because after ...Qe4+ 24.Qg2 Qxe3 25.Rf3 Qh6 26.Rg1 the attack is +1, but 22...Rac8 23.Rac1 Qg6+ is actually better for black because of the extra tempo with an attack on c3.|
Instead, in the game line, after 23.Rf3 white maintains about a pawn advantage; it gives 23...Nf6 24.Raf1 Rae8 25.Qg2 Re7 (the point I guess of the previous move, the idea being that after d5 black can take with the knight because f7 is defended) 26.c4 and white has a very nice position after ...Kh8 27.Kh1 or ...Ne4 27.Rf4 and the attacking plan I wanted in the first place.
|Apr-08-12|| ||Octal: This game is in "The King Hunt" by John Nunn. I believe he explains why 0-0 in that position, but I a) forget why and b) have sold the book.|
If I may say so the book is fantastic, but I quit playing chess a few years back. This comment is just me sitting at the computer at 3:06 AM.
|Apr-08-12|| ||Honza Cervenka: Beautiful attack by Bogo.|
|Apr-08-12|| ||erniecohen: As usual, I clicked into the middle of the game to see what sort of game we have, and happened to choose the position after White's 31st move:|

My first thought was that White is going to be punished for violating opening principals by bringing out his King too early...
|Apr-08-12|| ||HeMateMe: Bogo must have thought it was a BEER hunt, thats why he was so aggressive.|
|Apr-08-12|| ||auh2o: <Octal>: "John Nunn...explains why 0-0 in that position, but I a) forget why and b) have sold the book."|
Did Nunn explain why Machate thought 0-0 was correct or why Nunn thought 0-0 was correct?
|Apr-08-12|| ||Penguincw: Was black suppose to hunt for the king?|
|Apr-08-12|| ||waustad: Talk about castling into it! He's waving a red cape at him and saying, "Come and get me."|
|Apr-08-12|| ||newshutz: Sloppy play by white.
Bogo's best games are his <losses> to the greats.
He brought out the best from the best.
That would make a great book. "Bogo's greatest losses"
|Apr-08-12|| ||playground player: He wins as Black because he's Bogoljubov!|
|Apr-08-12|| ||Octal: <auh2o>: I believe Nunn explained why 0-0-0 is also bad for White.|
I really don't remember much more; i.e. where White's improvements were.
|Apr-08-12|| ||rilkefan: I've got _The King-Hunt_, by Nunn and Cozens (who wrote the first edition that Nunn revised). The book notes that "Black had a ready-made attack on the other wing too". It gives my above suggestion, 22.e5, an exclam, presumably missing the ...Rac8 line stockfish sees. And it misses the defensive/offensive 23.Rf3, which leaves white up over a pawn per SF.|
Incidentally, it says that 28...Nf3 drops all advantage after 29.Qg2 - winning was 28...Nxc4.

It got that one wrong: 29. ♕g2 ♕a5+ 30. ♔d3 ♘e5+ 31. dxe5 ♖ad8+ 32. ♔e4 ♖d2 33. ♖f2 ♖e8 34. ♔f3 ♖e8 35. ♔f3 ♕xe5 36. ♖xc2 ♕f5+ 37. ♔g3 ♖e6 38. h3 ♖g6+ 1-0.
|Apr-08-12|| ||rilkefan: _The King-Hunt_ has 29.Qg2 Qa5+ 30.Kd3 Nh4, which is funny since the stronger move appears in the game. Stockfish thinks black is winning (though not mating quickly) either way, preferring 29.Qe2. I can't follow your line at move 35.|
Anyway, I suspect much of the analysis in the book won't stand up to modern scrutiny. In this game it doesn't even recognize that white should have gotten a strong to winning attack out of the middlegame.
|Apr-08-12|| ||erniecohen: <rilkefan> Oops, sorry for the typo in the analysis; should be 34. ♔f3 ♕xe5 35. ♖xc2 ♕f5+ 36. ♔g3 ♖e6 37. h3 ♖g6+ 1-0.|
|Apr-09-12|| ||kevin86: Nice chess chase scene.|
|Apr-10-12|| ||Honza Cervenka: Lovely line is 29.Qg2 Qa5+ 30.Kd3 Ne5+ 31.dxe5 Rad8+ 32.Ke4 Rd2 33.Rf2 Re8 34.Rxd2 Qxe5+ 35.Kf3 Qxe3+ 36.Kg4 h5+! 37.Kxh5 Re5+ 38.Kh4 Qf4+ 39.Qg4 Rh5+! 40.Kxh5 Qh6#.|
|Apr-23-12|| ||erniecohen: (make that 0-1 :))|
