|Jul-26-03|| ||WRWilliams: Does anyone know why 4....d5 is almost never played instead of 4....c5? in the Nimzo-Indian Leningrad? If d5 is inferior, this game doesn't seem to show that clearly despite the final result which apparently is due to some miscalculation on the part of Gipslis? |
|Jul-28-03|| ||WRWilliams: Dear Chessgames Webmaster,
I've done a check and apparently this game is actually a transposition from an initial Nimzo-Indian Leningrad into a QGD Ragozin...
|Aug-02-04|| ||Knight13: I don't get why Gipslis resigned. |
|Aug-02-04|| ||Chessical: <Knight13> Gipslis is a piece for a pawn down with no compensation. |
|Oct-26-06|| ||JohnNash: This is my analysis why Giplis resigned:
Ba6 threatens to capture the Rook for a bishop, if black responds to this by moving the rook, he loses initiative and Tal maybe able to place his QB to e5, and then Q to f6, mate at Qg7. If Giplis tries to protect the f6 by Nd5, an easy Bb7 will remove the defender and Tal's victory is imminent.
|Oct-18-10|| ||Fusilli: <JohnNash> Being a piece up, I think Tal would go first for 0-0.|
|Oct-19-10|| ||dakgootje: 22. Qf6 proves: don't sac the saccer.
On the same account, you should not sock soccer and sack sackers [seen that in Up in the Air]
|Oct-19-10|| ||ughaibu: Chessmetrics doesn't mention any tournament contested by Tal in 1951.|
|Oct-19-10|| ||Fusilli: <ughaibu> Tal turned 15 and Gipslis 14 in 1951. My guess is that someone unearthed the game after Tal became famous. They were both Latvians, so it is possible that they played this game at a junior tournament back then.|
|Feb-08-13|| ||profK: I think I like 20...e5
If 21 Qe5 fRe8 22.Qd4 Bf3 looks pretty strong.

If you think Chessmetrics has all games ever played by the players mentioned, got to disappoint you :D
Chessmetrics takes one specific player (don't remember who, I think the most active top-20 player it was) and then traces the games by him, his opponents, the opponents of his opponents... and so on, for 10 "generations". So you must end up within these 10 generations to be on the specific Chessmetrics list.
