|Oct-20-03|| ||AdrianP: White must have missed 22... Rxc2! In retrospect 21. a3?! looks very dubious... perhaps 21. b3 was safer, although it looks like a nasty move to have to play. |
|Jun-27-04|| ||rochade18: There are often no castling intentions in the Caro-Kann, thats what I like so much: An active King who's not afaid of staying in the center |
|Jul-16-04|| ||zb2cr: <rochade18>, White's maneuver is sometimes called "artificial castling". If you look at the position after White's 19th, you see that it's just as if he'd castled long to begin with, then moved Rde1. |
|Dec-02-05|| ||pkjohn146: after 27...Bg4, why not 28 QxB?|
|Dec-02-05|| ||aw1988: Ne3+ nets the queen.|
|Dec-02-05|| ||pkjohn146: Oh yeah, duh.|
|Jan-16-08|| ||Gilmoy: <rochade18: There are often no castling intentions in the Caro-Kann ...> After 2..d5 3.e5 it has transposed to a French -- but the comment is still valid, as we don't castle in the French either :)|
Black's QB certainly enjoyed a better life than it does in a French.
|Apr-02-09|| ||beenthere240: After 2...d5 3 e5, the opening has NOT transposed to a french, which is characterized by an immediate 1...e6. I suppose you could say that after 4...e6 the opening has transposed to a french with the exception that the LSB is on f5.|
|Apr-02-09|| ||AnalyzeThis: This game is a good old fashioned butt whoopin'.|
|Aug-27-10|| ||eightbyeight: The ratings are not given, but Hort must have been a very strong player, and strong players do not play moves like 34. Rxf5??. This confuses me to no end.|
|Aug-27-10|| ||Phony Benoni: <eightbyeight> Hort and Seirawan were both world class players, though not quite championship level. |
I don't think that 34.Rxf5 deserves any question marks. For that matter, I don't know if White has a single move at that point deserving of a question mark. He's so busted that nothing would make any difference.
Okay, maybe 34.Rxf7 allowing mate in two. But I would put that more in the category of voluntary euthanasia.
|Nov-07-10|| ||Black is OK: This game was (and still is) very good news for Caro Kann users. After playing through the game backwards it appears to me white was slightly inferior at a very early stage. White followed mainline theory and played standard moves without obvious error thereafter. Well played Mr Seirawan.|
|Jan-13-11|| ||JuliusDS: 27...Bg4 was a pretty move, but after 28 Qg3, does black have anything more?|
|Jan-13-11|| ||Sastre: If 28.Qg3 then 28...Ne3+ 29.Kb2 Qxh1 .|
|Jan-13-11|| ||JuliusDS: Ah! Thanks.|
|Mar-24-12|| ||andachamp: Another brilliant game of yasser! It was a nice tactical blow like what pacman does inside the ring!hehehe|
