|May-15-05|| ||aw1988: What a game!|
|May-15-05|| ||Milo: 52...f2+, yes?|
|May-15-05|| ||Milo: Oh, nevermind, that doesn't work at all.|
|May-15-05|| ||Milo: 52...f2+ 53.Nxf2 |
|Dec-22-05|| ||optimusprimeooo: looks like black gave up or miscaculated bad endgame|
|Mar-05-06|| ||DeepBlade: A big pawn mass takes a lot of tempo to move, than a lone pawn.|
|Jun-24-06|| ||Phony Benoni: Apparently, Eugene Meyer has a sense of humor. You don't often see one player have three dark-squared bishops in the same game.|
|Dec-04-08|| ||WhiteRook48: e1B+. fxe1B, weird...|
|Dec-22-08|| ||WhiteRook48: Ha ha ha ha ha!!!! I would've laughed myself senseless if I'd seen this game.|
|Dec-22-08|| ||Toadspring: Is there ever any advantage to under promoting a pawn to a bishop or rook? I understand promoting it to a knight because of various forks but otherwise a queen is always better... right?|
|Dec-22-08|| ||Toadspring: I figured it out. Under promoting to a rook or bishop may help avoid stalemates in certain games. I didn't think of that earlier.|
|Dec-23-08|| ||WhiteRook48: 4 dark-squared bishops in the same game.
1. White's Bc1 at the start and Be1 at the end.
2. Black's Bf8
3. the pawn who promoted with a check.
4. the pawn who promoted with a capture
|Jan-05-09|| ||WhiteRook48: the game seems like a draw. Maybe if white has that bishop controlling b6 and a7 black can't get to the a-pawn, or better, the bishop ON b6, white can get his king over to h8 and play h8Q Nxh8 Kxh8 hoping to get the a pawn to queen? Anyone got an answer?|
|Feb-03-09|| ||WhiteRook48: I suppose the promotion to bishop wasn't necessary|
|Mar-09-09|| ||WhiteRook48: or simply maybe 50 Bc3+ followed by 51. h8=Q Nxh8 52 Bxh8|
|Apr-15-09|| ||WhiteRook48: no, wait 49...Nh8 50 Bc3+ 51 Bxh8|
|Sep-27-18|| ||Ironmanth: First time looking at this, merely by chance, as today is the Fed's 60th birthday. I recall both of these players well in the eighties at many NY and World Opens. What an amazing game! Happy birthday, John Fedorowicz.|
