Jul-28-06  Runemaster: <KP> Yes, that's one of the most enjoyable king hunts I've seen for a long time. Congratulations <IMlDay>
Jul-28-06  boz: Whatever happened to Koliada? I played him once in a 30 min. game. He won of course, but appeared very indignant about having to play a lowly 2000 player(he had lost in the previous round). He kept rolling his eyes and sighing impatiently at every move. Afterward, his parents were apologetic on his behalf. They were nice. I thought he was a spoiled brat.

Saw him win some fine games though.

Jul-28-06  who: <timothy> 28.cxd7 is illegal as white is in check.
Jul-28-06  Timothy Glenn Forney: Thanks ,I missed the check,but that doesn't effect the combination.I got the main point of it.Thats why 24.Nd5! is such a great move.I've never seen a game quite like this one.

  IMlday: Looking for something else I came across the En Passant magazine Oct. '94. Some notes based on the post-mortem:
23.h4?!- better is 23.♕d1!;
31..♔g6!?- 31..♕e6 was expected;
33..♕xc7?- the losing move. After 33..♖c8! White takes the perp; 46.♕f3+?- 46.♔g3 was instadeath.
Aug-02-06  Timothy Glenn Forney: 32.h5+ Kxh5 33.Rg1 Kxh6 34.Qb3 Qd7 35.cxd7 Rxd7 36.Qh3# with the help of an engine. I looked at 33...Rc8 that was the clincher black missed.
Aug-03-06  Timothy Glenn Forney: Here's one more line after <32.h5+ ♔xh6 33.♕d2+ ♔xh5 34.♖g1 ♕e6 35.♕e2+ ♔h6 36.♕e3+ ♔h5 37.♕f3+ ♔h6 38.♔h1 ♖g8 39.♕e3+ ♔h5 40.♕e2+ ♔h4 41.♕f2+ ♔h5 42.♕h2+ ♕h3 43.♕xh3# >this one has the zig zag attack.

  al wazir: 44. Kg3 wins immediately.
Nov-03-07  thinkjohn1980: yes I was looking at 44.Kg3 with the intention of 45.Qh4. Black has no response to it that I see.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Wow. What an amazing attack. It begins with 17.f5!, a typical sacrifice in this type of pawn formation, but the follow-up Nh4! is anything but typical, not the mention the rest of the game.

Based upon my experience with the Botvinnik Formation (played in this case by Black) both players must take care to prevent the opponent from advancing his/her f-pawn to the fifth rank. Black has a lot of chances to play ...exf4 followed ...f7-f5 which will shorten the c1-h6 diagonal of White's Bishop while opening the long diagonal of the Bg7.

In this particular position, there will be a pull for White after let's say 16...exf4; 17.gxf4,f7-f5; 18.Ng5!, but it would have been better than suffering this sort of attack.

Nov-03-07  D4n: This is an amazing game.
Nov-03-07  gandu: It seems to me that Black should have played 28...Qg4 to retain an edge.
Nov-03-07  firmamentalfalcon: Why did white sac the pawn on c6? If he skipped that move, then he would have won the black queen on move 38. Rxe5.

  SwitchingQuylthulg: <firmamentalfalcon: Why did white sac the pawn on c6? If he skipped that move, then he would have won the black queen on move 38. Rxe5.>

If Black's Q had still been at e7, Black could have played 37...fxg5, thus killing off White's attack and winning easily... with the sac, Black's queen is lured off from protecting g5. As has been pointed out, Black should have declined the pawn with 33...Rc8.

  kevin86: This is a brilliant game! White hunted a king with queen and rook while black,a bishop and many pawns ahead,was helpless to stop him.

al wazir (the dog) was right:44 ♔g3 would have threatened immediate inescapable mate-but we would have missed the last dance of queen and castle

btw,isn't "wazir" the old term for rook?

  Sneaky: ♬ If you like pinning Koliada ... ♪ getting stuck in the rain... ♩
Nov-03-07  grasser: I agree. 33...Rc8 leaves White with only a draw by perpetual, therefore making this game not brilliant, but rather a blown attack.

  al wazir: <kevin86: isn't "wazir" the old term for rook?> It's the name for the ♕ in Arabic-speaking countries. (It means "counselor" or "minister," as in "prime minister.") Also the nom de guerre of a terrorist.
Nov-03-07  Yurys student: <IMlday> Beautiful game, I like the finish
Nov-03-07  PinnedPiece: What would have been wrong with 27...Qg4? Pretty weak pawn there on h4. Seems like black Q and N could have mopped up.
Nov-03-07  psmith: <PinnedPiece> 27...Qg4 28. Rg1 Qxh4+ 29. Bh3 and Fritz 5.32 says White is winning. (due to Black's pinned piece!)
Feb-21-09  WhiteRook48: nice Day
Aug-29-10  sevenseaman: Its a scintillating game. As for the pun 'pay day' is fine. In my collection I'll use ' Between Black and White there is daylight' or ' A daylight Robbery'. A rare gem and some comments from its creator to boot.
Feb-10-11  katasaki: As far as I can see, 43. Kg3 fails to 43. ... Bh6, and whatever mate opportunity that was there evaporates.
May-24-13  tarashi88: 31...Kd8 what is it?
