|Nov-02-04|| ||Benzol: I remember reading that Botvinnik said that it was Model who taught him how to play the Dutch Defence |
|Nov-02-04|| ||Bobak Zahmat: From move 7. ... Qc7 black takes a little initiative of the game. And I think from this point blacks position gets better. |
|Nov-02-04|| ||Willem Wallekers: Jenny: I made a quote, not necessarily reflecting my own opinion. ;-) |
|Nov-02-04|| ||Knight13: Why not 8... Qxc3+ ?
This is a weird game I've ever seen on Master vs Master game!
|Nov-02-04|| ||Jenny Taylor: <Willem Wallekers> I made a joke, not necessarily reflecting my own opinion! |
|Nov-02-04|| ||maoam: <Knight13>
If 8...Qxc3+ then 9.Bd2 Qc7 10.Bd3 with White's development more than compensating for the lost pawn.
|Nov-02-04|| ||aw1988: The pun is cheesy as it gets :P |
|Nov-02-04|| ||kevin86: Here is a case that the pawns are so crushing that even a very weak knight doesn't hinder back's winning attack.|
This Model may be good,but wait until next year when the new models come out.
|Nov-02-04|| ||Calculoso: <moe> You can't play here. This is a site where you can go over games and "kibitz" on them (like people have done here) as well as check out openings and many other things. No actual play here, though. |
|Nov-02-04|| ||Rogon: Why can't Black take the pawn with 8. ... Qxe3? |
|Nov-02-04|| ||holierthanthou: <rogon> <maoam> explained that already, |
<maoam: If 8...Qxc3+ then 9.Bd2 Qc7 10.Bd3 with White's development more than compensating for the lost pawn>
|Nov-02-04|| ||aw1988: chessgames, I suggest an even better pun:
A Model game.
|Nov-02-04|| ||Jenny Taylor: I think my name is the best pun of all! |
|Nov-02-04|| ||Hinchliffe: <Jenny Taylor> I expect no better from a friend of Seaman Stains. |
|Nov-02-04|| ||Pawsome: Thanks for the URL leading to Hans Ree's column, Willem Wallekers. Anyone who hasn't checked it out should. After scanning the article, I'm left with the impression that the identity of the unkown Maestro who flattens five out of seven Soviet Chess Giants by phone was never revealed – at least Ree leaves the question open. |
|Nov-02-04|| ||Minor Piece Activity: This reminds me, Carmen Kass is also a chess player and a decent one at that unless chessbase was joking again. Are there any known games by her? Couldn't find one in the db. |
|Nov-03-04|| ||Jenny Taylor: <hinchclit>Did you know that it is an urban myth that the 1960s childrens TV show Captain Pugwash had characters with rude names. There were no such characters as Master Bates, Seaman Staines and Private Parts in the show. Pugwash is not an Australian slang word for buggery. All this was made up by a couple of comediens and then repeated so often that it came to be assumed to be fact. Two newspapers - one the venerable Daily telegraph in the UK - have been successfuly sued by the show's author for mistakenly claiming that the names of the show's characters were rude innuendos. |
|Nov-03-04|| ||Benzol: I can remember 'Tom the cabin boy' and 'Cut-throat Jake'.
Captain Pugwash himself reminds me of British actor Peter Bowles. |
|Mar-11-05|| ||samvega: Is miss Jenny Taylor. |
|Oct-14-07|| ||engmaster: 10) 0-0 is forced as Qe2 loses to 10)...Qc3!
By move 13 black has an extra pawn, two centre pawns, a majority on the king side. White has the bishop pair and a weak queenside (from an attacking perspective) due to the doubled pawns on C file
|Oct-18-07|| ||eristoff: 35.♗d4?? is the decisive mistake. 35.♗c2 Δ c6 would have saved the day. Now if 35... ♕e5 36.♕c4+ White wins, and if 35... ♘b5 36.♕b1! is dangerous for Black, so Black must go for the draw with 35... ♘xf2 36.♔xf2 ♕d5 37.c6 ♕xb5 38.c7 ♕xb6+ with perpetual check.|
|Oct-18-07|| ||whiteshark: <eristoff> I agree with you! 35.Bf2 was the last way to draw.|
<33...Qe5> instead of f5 was an intersting alternative, but it doesn't seem win.
However <33.Qa8> would have been also a clear cut drawing line, limiting blacks queen's activity to the defence of ♙b7.

|Oct-28-07|| ||outsider: model was a strong player, he finished 4th in that tournament and was in world top 20 although he is little known in the west|
|Apr-03-12|| ||Rama: Alekhine developed this opening line (cxd4, Qc7) in his notes to the tournament book New Tork 1924. I like the French and won a few games with it.|
