|May-02-05|| ||isolatedpawn: Mark Hebden just forgot to defend his King.|
|May-02-05|| ||Saph: Forgot to defend his king... hehehehe.|
|May-02-05|| ||khense: Hebden forbid!|
|May-02-05|| ||charms: 27... ♗xf6?? makes things easy for white.. ♕h8# is inevitable.
27... ♔f8 is the only defense, but already too late:
27... ♔f8 28.♕h8+ ♔e7 ♘xe8+ ♔d7 ♖f7+ ♔c8 ♘d6# is more entertaining. Maybe Nd7 was better for black, but I doubt that he can survive the attack.|
|May-02-05|| ||Madman99X: He did forget to defend his king. 26... hxg6??? is a blunder which leaves his king wide open. 26. fxg6! eliminates the threat of the g pawn, and keeps the h-file closed, and wins handily.|
27. Bxc1 Nf2+! 28. Nxf2 Re1 29. Kg1 Rf8 (By now white is up a creek without a paddle or a prayer.) 30. Bf4 (slows things down a little) Rxf1+ 31. Kxf1 Qa1 32. g3 Qxb1+ and about that time, I toss the board across the table if I'm white.
|May-02-05|| ||YouRang: It looks to me like 23... Ne5 an example of 'pushing the queen where it wanted to go'.|
|May-02-05|| ||kevin86: Save and a beauty for white! He had two ways to capture the knight,but he declined both-leaving black holding the bag. Of course after 29♖xf2??? ♖e1 mates next move-or ♕xf2? and white's mate threat is kaput.|
The movie BLAZING SADDLES is terrific!!
|May-02-05|| ||aw1988: Funny move that ...Qa5.|
|May-02-05|| ||knightspot: ... Qa5 was the harbinger of a massive queenside attack, a majestic foray into an empty battlefield - saving his own king, well there's so much to think about in the game, I guess he didn't consider the king all that important|
|May-02-05|| ||reprizent: 26. fxg6 seemed the best "solution" for black indeed. BU t I think the threat with Nf6 was always there. I will have to see all possibilities to judge if black has a chance to escape.|
|Oct-11-05|| ||BabyJ: I'll be dammed! Is this ANOTHER book
on Lance Armstrong? 'Lance Armstrong's
War' by Daniel Coyle. I haven't even
finished 'Every Second Counts' yet.
It's too complicated for me to see
after the better 26...fxg6.
At least I saw his intent in playing
21 Bb1, but so did Hebden, as his
next move shows. It's amazing, but I
think Matthew saved that bishop so
that he could play f6! ...Bh8, and
now Nf5! - tho not a FORCING sacrifice,
looks remarkably stiff. He is hitting
d6, maybe even e7. H6 looks to be a
red herring in this case. But what if
Black just takes the knight, seeing
as to how he could just defend the
mate with ...Nf8. But then Rf3! and
Rh3. Nice, Sadler. The c1-rook would
be incinerated in this deal as well,
but it wouldn't matter. But Hebden
didn't want to be suffocated in his
bed like this, so he got his bishop
out on d4.
