|Sep-27-03|| ||kevin86: I think that Mr. Torre coughed this one up;he had a two pawn advantage-passed pawns at that.I think Steinbrenner should fire him----oops,wrong Torre! |
|Sep-28-03|| ||AgentRgent: When a game is played this well, it's not bad that it ends in a draw.. good fighting spirit from both players. |
|Oct-27-04|| ||drchess9999: I guess even after 68.Kc6 black can draw easily by just swaping the knight for the pawn after white takes b6.... |
|Oct-27-04|| ||PivotalAnorak: ROFL Great pun ! And good defence by Black. An active King saves the day ! |
|Oct-27-04|| ||AgentRgent: <PivotalAnorak: ROFL Great pun !> Thank you. |
|Oct-27-04|| ||cu8sfan: <AgentRgent> So did you suggest this pun to cg.com? I think it's hilarious! |
|Oct-27-04|| ||AgentRgent: Yes I did, last September. I guess some good Games of the Day get recycled. ;-) |
|Oct-27-04|| ||patzer2: I thought perhaps 55. g4!? might give White winning chances, but in playing it out with Fritz 8, there appears to be an amazing defensive resource for Black.|
55. g4!? Ne4 56. Kg2 Ne4 57. Kf3 Nf6 58. g5 Ne8 59. Kf4 Kd6 60. Kf5 Ke7 61. Kg6 Kf8 62. Kh7 Nc7 63. g6 Ne8 64. Be2 Ng7 65. Kh8 b6 and now Black's Knight repeatedly hops from e8 to g7 to h5. And now, despite Fritz's optimistic +2.78 assessment, I don't see how White can stop the game from ending in a long draw by repetition.
Maybe someone can find a win in this White to move position (66.?):
White: Pawns on b3 and g6, Bishop on e2, King on h8.
Black: Pawn on b6, Knight on g7, King on f8.
Note: Fritz assesses 66. Bf1 as +2.78 @ 29 depth & 1348kN/s. However, it looks like a draw to my poor wood pushing brain, version 1 (MOWPB-1).
|Oct-27-04|| ||kevin86: Note the above post:thirteen months to the day-and today the jinxed BoSox will have their day,Also,Torre's Yankees DID cough the ALCS up--but I don't think Torre should be fired.|
Super double pun!!
|Oct-27-04|| ||ragnar0C: didnt white have that game, i mean pawns and king next to the black pawn??? why draw? |
|Nov-01-04|| ||patzer2: <ragnarOC> Where do you think White had the win? What move did he miss? |
