Feb-19-06  blingice: This should be a puzzle of the day. Mardle could've stopped this, I believe, rather easily if he interposed his ♖ to stop the check, in what seems like a very easy combination for a player to see, especially when playing with tournament time.
May-05-06  DanRoss53: <blingice> Indeed... 14. ♖f2 ♗xf2+ ♔xf2 ♔xf8 may even favour White slightly.
Jun-16-08  JimmyVermeer: According to Laszlo Polgar, these 2 played an identical game in 1965 that differed only on Gaprindashvili's 7th move.

Either that or somebody has made a mistake (either Polgar or chessgames.com).

  Phony Benoni: More likely, since this was played at the Hastings Christmas Congress held from December 1964 to January 1965, it's the same game. Some people would record the date as "1964", some as "1965", and the whole thing is a big Mardle. Happens all the time with these Hastings tournaments.

  TheFocus: Yes, this was the 1964-65 Hastings.
Mar-02-15  narceleb: I believe the seventh move here is recorded incorrectly, and that she actually played 7...dc6, not 7...bc6.

Obviously everyone's hung over from the night before... End of discussion/argument.

  sachistu: The 7th move was 7...dxc6 (not ...bxc6) according to British Chess Magazine, 1965, page 38. However, the game has been published in other sources with 7...bxc6 i.e. Magyar Sakkelet, 1965, Issue 2 page 20. I'll submit a correction slip.

It's interesting no one has mentioned the possiblity 13.f4!? in the version given here. That same possibilty seems to also exist in the BCM version. Hindle does not mention it saying only that White's game was inferior prior to the blunder on move 14. Hindle also suggests 14.Rf2.
