  Honza Cervenka: Very nice attack!
Jan-08-03  drukenknight: what about 16 f5 clearing a square for the B much like in that Fischer/Gligoric game?
Dec-17-04  Knight13: 23... Bxg3! is beautiful!
Dec-17-04  kostich in time: "Breyer did marvelous things"-Napier
Apr-09-09  YoungEd: Only a kornel of truth in Havasi's game.
Apr-09-09  sfm: Guess White should have tried 22.Nf1.
Apr-09-09  Thickasabrick31: Why doesn't white play 24. cxb7+ ? Then 24. ... Kb8 25. Nxf3 gxf3. And after 26. Red1 white might be able to stay afloat.
Apr-09-09  paavoh: " Why doesn't white play 24. cxb7+ ? Then 24. ... Kb8 25. Nxf3 gxf3. And after 26. Red1 white might be able to stay afloat". Perhaps 26.- Bxf2+ 27. Kxf2 Qh2+ or 27.Kf1 Qg3 give a sufficient edge for Black.

Analysis by Fritz 9:

1. = (0.00): 24.Ba6 Bh2+ 25.Kf1 Bf4 26.Bxb7+ Kb8 27.Ba6+ Ka8 28.Bb7+ Kb8

2. (-10.90): 24.Re4 Rh1+ 25.Kxh1 Bxf2 26.cxb7+ Kb8

(, 09.04.2009)

24.Rxb7 was a disaster, Havasi missed 24.Ba6! which equalized..

Apr-09-09  TheTamale: Great nerve by Black--leaving his own king a sitting duck while he conducts his attack.

  kevin86: I know of 2 particular references to "Brier"-the word in the pun today.

In the Disney Movie0SONG OF THE SOUTH,a part story is called "Brer Rabbit and the Brier Patch"

The second is that the Canadian men's curling championship is called "The Brier".

  Calli: A brier patch is patch of thorny, prickly plants that is hard to get through without getting scraped up - just like Breyer's web of tactics in this game.
Apr-09-09  mworld: white totally neglected his kingside in favor of a slow attack...

  playground player: Black's play nicely illustrates General Forrest's maxim: "Git thar fust with the mostest men." (Lucullus was the first great practitioner of that aspect of the art of war, but he got little credit during his lifetime and not much more since his death.)

Here are some more courtesy of Wikipedia:

"Briar Patch may refer to:

1. Br'er Rabbit's patch for hiding as told in the Uncle Remus stories.

2. Briar Patch (Star Trek), a region of space in the fictional Star Trek universe

3. Briar Patch (film), a 2003 movie starring Dominique Swain

4. Briar Patch (novel), a 1989 short novel by Dean Ing, in the Man-Kzin Wars series

5. "Briarpatch" (song), a 2004 song on the album To tha X-Treme by Devin the Dude

6. The Briar Patch (book), a 1973 book by Murray Kempton, winner of the 1974 National Book Award for Contemporary Affairs

7. Briarpatch, a Canadian alternative news magazine"

My hunch is that the rabbit got there first...

Apr-09-09  Riverbeast: What a thoroughly brutal b*tt-kicking
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: Attacks on opposite wings, always full of enjoyable suspense.
Apr-09-09  shahjinan: well in the end it seems they should have putQh2# instead of Qh2 +:)

  Once: <shahjinan: well in the end it seems they should have putQh2# instead of Qh2 +:)>

Except that 30...Qh2+ isn't mate! White has 31. Kxg4 Rdg8+ 32. Kxf3 33. Rh3#.

Apr-09-09  WhiteRook48: don't get what the pun means
Premium Chessgames Member
  Breunor: The song from Disney's 'Song of the South' comes from the Uncle Remus stories. It has been a famous story.

For instance, it is used in the Board of the Rings, the parody of Lord of the Rings, when Frito (Frodo) escapes from the Pig Riders (ringwraths) at the pardoy of the Fords of Bruinen. Frito uses the brer Rabbit to as told by Uncle Remus.
