|Jun-28-05|| ||Gowe: amazing game.|
|Jun-25-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Instructive game! Excellent annotations from WC Lasker!|
|Jun-25-12|| ||sevenseaman: A very impressive, attacking game by White.|
|Jun-25-12|| ||Marmot PFL: Too bad 15 Bb3 h6 wasn't played or we could have had 15 moves of symmetry. 10 moves isn't bad though. I wonder if someone has collected the games here that stay symmetrical the longest.|
|Jun-25-12|| ||lemaire90: A very creative win from a position that was equal and symmetrical at move 10.|
21. Ra31 !?, definitely not a move that I would think to play and sack the rook like that. Nice attack.
|Jun-25-12|| ||DanielBryant: A pun that perfectly suggests how I feel about chess. "Never gonna give you up..."|
|Jun-25-12|| ||Abdel Irada: <Mispun?>
Rather than "Rick Rolled," it seems to me that "Amos Burned" might have been more descriptive.
|Jun-25-12|| ||RMKvdS: Notation at move 24... gxf6 is wrong. In the second line after 24... Qe2, Lasker states 26. Kxg7. This move is illegal since the bishop is defended by the knight at f5. It is save to assume white takes on f7 instead, since the following move in the annotation is 27. Nd6+. Checking indicates that the king is placed on f7.|
|Jun-25-12|| ||Phony Benoni: <RMKvdS> You're right, but I found your kibitz a bit confusing and just wanted to clarify it a bit. Here is Lasker's note to <24...gxf6>, the move played in this position:|

"Not the right answer; 24...Qe2 should have been played. White would then have achieved no mate by 25.Bxg7+ Kg8 26.Nh6+ Kxg7 27.Qxf7+ Kxh6, nor by <25.Bxg7+ Kg8 26.Bxf7+ Kxg7 27.Nd6+ Kxg7> 28.Qf7+ Kh6 29.Nf5+ Kg5 30.f4+ Bxf4 31.gxf4+ Nxf4 32.h4+ Kg4 33.Rxf4+ Kh3."
In the highlighted section, Black plays ...Kxg7 on both moves 26 and 27. The first of these should be <26...Kxf7>.
|Jun-25-12|| ||FSR: Maybe that line was easy for Lasker to see (and maybe he assumed that it would be equally easy for Burn, a world-class player, to see), but most of us would be loath to venture into a nine-move-long variation that had our (Black) king wandering down to h3 in the middlegame.|
|Jun-25-12|| ||kevin86: A whole lotta a'queenin' goin' on.|
|Jun-25-12|| ||rookending: Rybka thinks 43 ... Rg8 draws, for example 44 Rg3 b3 45 Rxc3 Rxg5+ 46 Kh2 b2 47 Rb3 Rxf5 48 Rxb2 Rh5+ 49 Kg3 Rxh6|
|Jun-25-12|| ||e4 resigns: I love the pun!|
|Jun-25-12|| ||FSR: Somehow I had never heard of "rickrolling." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rickro... But I agree with <Abdel Irada> that "Amos Burned" would have been apter. Rick wasn't the one who got rolled here.|
|Jun-25-12|| ||waustad: Yes, I'm from before the time that memes were typical. Then again my puns may be a bit dated for much of the readership. In the second edition of my book I removed the joke that assumed people were cognizant of one of the great films of all time, The Third Man. Over 3 years teaching out of the first edition only 2 people got it and they were sitting next to each other.|
|Jun-25-12|| ||Jim Bartle: I'm quite aware of "The Third Man." I wouldn't necessarily say I'm "cognizant" since I never figured out exactly what happened. I did learn it was not one of the first movies directed by a woman.|
|Jun-25-12|| ||Phony Benoni: <FSR> In this case, Rick rolled instead of being rolled. But I had the same thought as you, and kept wondering throughout the game why Burn seemed to be losing.|
But I'm glad you provided a link to the explanation. I had no idea. Meepmeep I understand, but not meme.
|Jun-25-12|| ||AnotherNN: "I'm quite aware of "The Third Man." I wouldn't necessarily say I'm "cognizant" since I never figured out exactly what happened. I did learn it was not one of the first movies directed by a woman."|
Huh?! The Third Man was directed by a man (Carol Reed).
|Jun-26-12|| ||FSR: <AnotherNN: [Jim Bartle] "I'm quite aware of "The Third Man." I wouldn't necessarily say I'm "cognizant" since I never figured out exactly what happened. I did learn it was not one of the first movies directed by a woman."|

Good point. This Carol was a man. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carol_...
|Jun-26-12|| ||Shams: <Jim Bartle>'s statement was correct: it was not one of the first movies directed by a woman.|
|Jun-26-12|| ||Honza Cervenka: After 19...Nf6 Lasker wrote <Why not first Rad8? Black ought to complete his development, before making aggresive or defensive manouvers. Moreover the Knight was well posted on d5.>|
Oh, who am I to dare to argue with great Lasker? But after 19...Rad8 white can play simply 20.Bg5 and now if black plays 20...Rd7, then after 21.Rad1 with 22.Ne3 in the air black position looks quite uncomfortable.
|Jun-26-12|| ||Honza Cervenka: Instead of 24.Bxf6 white could play also 24.Nxg7 with advantage. Of course, the Knight cannot be taken, and after 24...Nd5 25.Nxe8 Qxe8 26.Bxd8 Qxd8 27.Rd1 white wins the second Pawn having thus Rook and 2 Pawns for 2 Knights, which should be better for him, especially considering weak KS Pawns and relatively insecure King of black.|
|Jun-26-12|| ||FSR: <Shams: <Jim Bartle>'s statement was correct: it was not one of the first movies directed by a woman.>|
It occurred to me that that was one possible interpretation of his statement. Similarly, the former Leslie Lynch King was not the first woman President of the United States.
|Jun-26-12|| ||Jim Bartle: OK, everyone. My wording was sloppy. What I meant to say was I learned that Carol Reed was a man, therefore not one of the first female directors.|
|Jun-26-12|| ||HeMateMe: On the television show <Medical Center> Brady Bunch dad Robert Reed had a sex change, and became a woman. True story.|
