|Nov-17-05|| ||WannaBe: I am in the mood for chianti and fava beans all of a sudden... And where is Clarice?|
|Nov-17-05|| ||Waffles: No offense to Mr. Day or anything, as he is better then i'll ever be but the first 20 moves of his opening looked really wacky! I am only a class 'B' player, and have a strict code of flank openings and hypermodern systems (English/N-L/Reti) but was any of that theory? The Qe2 move was interesting, sort of preventing D5, seen similarly in the Chigorin variation of the French. (1.e4 e6 2.qe2). Good game, interesting finish! Good job Mr. Day!|
|Nov-17-05|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: I have to admit that the moves of both players baffled me. How much of the game was played in mutual time trouble?|
|Nov-17-05|| ||IMlday: I knew he was 'prepared' when he played 5..a6 without much thought. Usually if Blacks don't know it, then they spend time calculating 5..Bg7 6.Nb5 d6 7.Qd3 Ke7 8.Qe2 a6 9.Na3 trying to figure out whether Black is up or down tempi after he sorts his King. The second move with the a-pawn 23..a5 is also a fairly critical moment since it creates at b5 an 'entry square'~something Black himself doesn't have since I had craftily defended everything twice.
After 31.Ne5 the position is massively complicated and the clock becomes important. 33.Nc5 makes for a perfect diagram regarding isolated d-pawns, the 4 ♘s lined up in a row on the 5th rank, at the max, however Black's b-pawn is condemned which suggests ..a5 was an over-play. 35.Rb7!? is amusing, but not necessarily best since 35.Ra5 targetting the a-pawn also made (simpler) sense. However the 'triple zugzwang' ;-) proves pretty effective!
This was a fun game; the eyes of Chigorin and Bohatirchuk would twinkle|
|Nov-17-05|| ||al wazir: If white plays 47. Nf6, black has no defense. After 47...Rc1+ (or Qd1+) 48. Kg2, he is out of checks and he can't stop 49. Qh7#. |
|Nov-17-05|| ||keypusher: What a battle!|
|Nov-17-05|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: Yes indeed, quite a battle. This game was quite close!|
|Nov-17-05|| ||ray keene: i am flabberghasted -nerves of steel by white|
|Nov-17-05|| ||grizopoulos: Mr.Day,please contact me at email@example.com am interested in some book of yours. thank you!|
|Nov-17-05|| ||dakgootje: The lambs must have been silent for days after this game...but it can be that was because that the liver was getting mouldy...|
|Nov-17-05|| ||AlexanderMorphy: great game L Day!|
|Nov-17-05|| ||kevin86: I wonder if chessgames.com thought to punfully call this game of the day-"Game of the Day".|
Good,intense attack by white from start to finish.
SILENCE of THE LAMBS-good picture,but not as good as SE7EN!
|Nov-17-05|| ||kevin86: BTW,should this game be served up with some fava beans and a nice chianti?!|
|Nov-17-05|| ||WannaBe: <kevin86> Maybe "Game of L. Day" =)|
|Nov-17-05|| ||BadTemper: Wow a genius quintuple zugzwang with a double king sacrifice. Nice call esticles.|
|Nov-17-05|| ||fred lennox: What a splendid game. I suspect Spielmann would of had a twinkle in his eyes too. Nimzowitch may of admired the mysterious rook move at 26. I am sure i'll admire it too, once i get it.|
|Nov-17-05|| ||al wazir: <ray keene: nerves of steel by white> |
Well, he must have been a little bit nervous, or he would have played 47. Nf6.
|Nov-17-05|| ||TheAlchemist: All right! First time I anticipate a GoD pun. I'm very flattered, thanks <chessgames>!|
|Nov-17-05|| ||OhioChessFan: Instead of a5, how about Nf6-d7 to challenge the c5 knight?|
|Nov-17-05|| ||IMlday: Missing 47.♘f6 was pretty educational. The game is won anyway and I just collected another pawn with check fairly automatically. And 47.♘f6 is miraculously strong, threatening mate plus covering all the checking squares at g4, e4, d5. Definitely a Gold Medal Knight having traversed the whole board and clearly deserving of the 'kill-shot'! I officially apologize to my ♕'s ♘ for dragging things out~~I was just having so much fun as it went..|
|Nov-17-05|| ||johnnyfold: What a brilliant hard fought game, and very instructive comments from Mr Day, thank you.|
|Nov-17-05|| ||johnnyfold: I think it was yours after 3Qe2|
|Nov-17-05|| ||Knight13: "Silence of the Lamb" Dang, man. THat movie's scary. I've even read the book. It's horror, man. I don't even wanna look at the game lol.|
|Nov-17-05|| ||khense: An odd game from the beginning. I think I'll analyze it if I get shipwrecked for a month or two.|
|Nov-18-05|| ||kevin86: Here's a thought:being invited for dinner by Sir Anthony Hopkins-a scary honor,to say the least.|
