|Oct-08-13|| ||sfm: Poor Black, just having played h7-h5 the move before, cutting off a safe retreat to h6.|
Larsen once said: "At times people see a danger, then decides that it is no problem as there is a good response - and then makes a move making that response impossible".
|Oct-08-13|| ||King Sacrificer: Thumbs up if you checked <13. Nxd6+> first.|
|Oct-08-13|| ||Dr. Funkenstein: Patriot: I had the same hiccup as you did, for a minute or two I thought black could play e5 before realizing the e pawn is pinned after Ng5 and thus exf4 isn't possible to save the trapped queen|
|Oct-08-13|| ||zb2cr: 13. Ng5 closes the door on the Black Queen, setting up 14. g3 to win the Queen.|
|Oct-08-13|| ||gawain: The Black queen is asking for trouble. And gets it.|
|Oct-08-13|| ||dufferps: As usual, I would have liked to see them play it out to the bitter end. For what would black trade his queen? How does white convert his material advantage to a win?|
I have no doubt that if he was good enough to see that queen-trap, he could convert it to a win, but I'd like to see how it is done.
|Oct-08-13|| ||LIFE Master AJ: I went with 13 Ng5, in an attempt to trap the BQ.|
|Oct-08-13|| ||kevin86: How could a World Champion let his queen sail to such a hostile and deserted port?|
Ng5 traps the queen-g3 will win her.
|Oct-08-13|| ||Dionysius1: Missed it! But then so did a world champ. I don't feel too bad.|

|Oct-08-13|| ||diagonalley: <chris owen> whenever i begin to doubt my sanity, deliverance arrives in the form of your postings on this site. thankyou for your manifest confirmation that i haven't (as yet) lost it|
|Oct-08-13|| ||CommaVid: Can anyone confirm the game data? The facts that 1) they didn't play hastings 1939/40 2) Richardson is unknown 3) Euwe never played the pirc and 4) Euwe plays far worse than in a blitz blindfold vs Botvinnik makes me think the info just is not correct.|
|Oct-08-13|| ||rudiment: <diagonalley> hear, hear.|
I've always secretly dreamed of an exhibition of <Once> vs <chrisowen> to see if their playing styles are as different as their posting styles...
|Oct-08-13|| ||King Sacrificer: One fact about <chrisowen>; he always solves the puzzles correctly.|
Think before making fun of him. Maybe he is disabled and using some kind of voice-to-text tool for posting messages. Otherwise, he is a unique artist.
|Oct-08-13|| ||Chessdreamer: Bill Wall's "500 Pirc Miniatures" gives the name of the 2nd player as Eva instead of Max Euwe.|
|Oct-08-13|| ||randomsac: Oops. Obviously black's queen is in quite a bind with tons of pawns cutting off escape. Ng5 seals the deal.|
|Oct-08-13|| ||Doniez: After a long and hard day, it took a couple of minutes to get the right move. Kg5 and the black Queen is trapped! Maybe this is one of the most difficult Tuesday puzzles.|
|Oct-08-13|| ||Returning Native: Thumbs up if you checked <13. Nxd6+> first.|
I did. I was looking at the possibility of creating a half open file. I didn't see the danger to the queen. She takes up an aggressive position on the flank early in so many games despite what we're always being told about premature queen development.
This game neatly illustrates the warning.
|Oct-08-13|| ||Penguincw: < Returning Native: Thumbs up if you checked <13. Nxd6+> first. >|
I was thinking of that too. The other move I thought of was 13.g3, attacking the queen, but not trapping it.
|Oct-08-13|| ||SamAtoms1980: 13.Ng5, followed by 14.g3 and it's "Checkmate to your Queen."|
|Oct-08-13|| ||Marmot PFL: Euwe played at Hastings, but that was in the top section Hastings 1938/39 (1938)|
He wouldn't lose like this to some English oaf.
|Oct-08-13|| ||peristilo: Man, I would never like to be alone with this chrisowen. This guy scares me!|
|Oct-08-13|| ||KlingonBorgTatar: The moral of the story:
Before you take out your mistress,
always have a ready escape route!!
|Sep-22-17|| ||MissScarlett: <Bill Wall's "500 Pirc Miniatures" gives the name of the 2nd player as Eva instead of Max Euwe.>|
The <Falkirk Herald> of December 28th 1938, p.12, has Arthur Eva (Cheshire) and <J. E. Richardson> (Stowe School, Bucks.) as two contestants in Section C of the Hastings Chess Congress.
|Sep-22-17|| ||MissScarlett: The <Birmingham Post>, January 31st 1939, p.6, gives the identical score of a <brevity> won by J. E. Richardson, <a youth> in one of the Premier Reserve sections; the opponent isn't named, but I think we have enough to go on.|
