  WannaBe: Hey! <enderozdemir> you're a long time reader first time kibitzer, aye? :-)

Usually we call out <Crafty> for a job like this.

  TheAlchemist: <enderozdemir> A last gasp might be 27...Qxe2+. White must be very careful, but still comes out on top after the only move 28.Kc1!. Black must defend against 29.Bd5, if 28...Bc4, then 29.Rg6 Kh8 30.Rxf6!, if 28...Rf7 29.Bd5 and Black is again helpless. <patzer2> pointed out, that 27.Ng5 wasn't the most accurate, but still completely winning and perhaps more spectacular.

  patzer2: <TheAlchemist> I agree with <enderozemir> that 27. Ng5!? Qxe2 28. Kc1! is a bit difficult but should still win for White. However, White can avoid these problems with the stronger 27. Rg6+! , with a clear winning advantage, as discussed earlier.

  patzer2: <enderozdemir>, I meant that I agree with <TheAlchemist>'s analysis of 27. Ng5!? Qxe2 28. Kc1! , but prefer 27. Rg6! as stronger.
Aug-19-05  enderozdemir: You are right <WannaBe>. After this beatiful game, I could not be quiet.

Thank you <TheAlchemist> for your analysis. I think that 27.Ng5! is a very good move and immediately wins. After this move black can resign because all of his moves are forced (Also black is defensless against 28.Bd5+).

<patzer2> Thanks, but i have a question. What about black plays 27...Kf7 after 26.Rg6+ ? I think 28.Nxd6+ Kxg6 28.Nxc4 Bxc4 and there is no clear winning for white. If 28.Rg7+ Ke6 is ok for black. Am I wrong?

  patzer2: <enderozdemir> I think you meant to look at 27. Rg6 Kf7 28.Nxd6+ Kxg6 28.Nxc4 (28. Rg7+ Ke6) 28...Bxc4.

If so, then 27. Rg6! Kf7 28. Rxf6+! gives White a clearly decisive attack.

May-24-08  addiction to chess: Breathtaking!
Jul-24-08  Trigonometrist: The most startling game ever!!!
Feb-12-09  WhiteRook48: really nice sacrificial game!
Mar-18-09  WhiteRook48: whoa! he sacs all major pieces??
Jun-18-09  WhiteRook48: going crazy
Jul-27-09  Gryz: There is another amazing game by Malinin, playing the same opening. If you haven't seen that game, you won't believe your eyes.

V B Malinin vs V Savinov, 1988

Mar-17-10  tommy boy: Oustanding...
Aug-26-10  sevenseaman: 27. Ng5 is an unsolvable killing move.
Aug-26-10  sevenseaman: One of the most elegant end-game combinations I've seen.
Oct-11-11  King Sacrificer: This guy doesn't hesitate sacrificing major pieces because he is so good with the minor pieces.

Check Savinov game. :)

Nov-07-11  sevenseaman: 28. Bd5+ is an even more germane sac. The LSB lays down its life to liberate the DSB for a fatal rendezvous a couple of moves later.
Jun-19-12  vinidivici: wow,,,,,the checkmate so good, dude, make this game a puzzle of the day.....from 28.?

  Bubo bubo: The uncommon mate was anticipated in Maczynski vs W Pratten, 1948.
Oct-26-14  SpiritedReposte: 27. Ng5! 28. Bd5+! 29. Rh8+! That is quite the mating combination.
May-02-15  ScottElliott: I like 27 Nd2 which nullifies ..Qxe2+. If 27 ..Qxa2+ 28 Kc1. What can White do to prevent Bd5+ Qxd5, Ne7+?. The strategy of h5 Nxh5, Rxh5 is a brilliant sacrifice which can be a thought any time Black fianchettoes his KB and castles but White has not yet castled. Its a good thematic sacrifice to know.
Oct-16-17  condor: How many moves did white need to plan?
