|Oct-21-03|| ||refutor: just got my issue of "chess life" today (or "chess lite" as the editor referred to it as because of the $1000/day loss the USCF incurred last year?!) and this game was in there. the position after 54.a7 is fascinating. but the USCF situation is frightening, this is the second issue of the 12 issues i purchased...i wonder if there will be a 12th? in the "vision for a better future" at the introduction of the issue, the USCF Advantages included the building, and the members. that doesn't bode well for chess in the states. it would be nice to have some advantages other than the two things that can't go away ;)|

|Oct-21-03|| ||drukenknight: Chess sure is a confusing sport! What are the advantags of the USCF? They give you a rating and place/time to go play an event. No equipment, not much else. |
|Oct-21-03|| ||John Doe: Maybe black should've taken the threat more seriously. 3 connected pawns!!!|
Is the position really won after 34?
|Oct-21-03|| ||drukenknight: it looks like he should have got the R more active down the a file near the end. |
|Oct-22-03|| ||Catholic Bishop: Too much pawn is bad for your health |
|Oct-22-03|| ||Eggman: I remember Kamsky being critized for his habit of playing on too long before resigning. Perhaps this was a game in point! Or was this blitz? |
|Jul-15-04|| ||iron maiden: I'm glad he didn't resign. The only other time I can remember seeing three connected pawns on the seventh rank is in that Labourdonnais game. |
|Nov-16-04|| ||Dave Murray: This is truly an awesome game! It looked like it was played 1887 maybe, the opening the ending... not sure about middle game thought. |
I amkinda glad Kamsky didn't resign either, well at least its better than resigning to early and you can't figure out why the hell did they resign?
|Nov-16-04|| ||Knight13: Very strong passed pawn and a very use less rooks. |
|Dec-20-05|| ||The17thPawn: <Iron Maiden> - Look at Janowski vs Edward Lasker, 1924 for a real barn burner. The difference being that Ed. Lasker actually pulls out a draw.|
|Dec-20-05|| ||Jim Bartle: I've never seen three connected pawn on the 7th rank before (move 54).|
|Dec-20-05|| ||sneaky pete: <Jim Bartle>Have a look at MacDonnell vs La Bourdonnais, 1834.|

I would certainly have appreciated it if Kamsky had resigned at move 54.

Here is a game with four connected pawns on the seventh rank.
