|Feb-18-06|| ||LIFE Master AJ: How do they come up with this stuff?
Anyway, the game is too cool.
I thought I had seen it before, I dug through some old Informants, and sure enough - it was in there.
27...e5!! is a wickedly delightful move. (If PxP, then ...g5 traps the Queen.) The Q+P ending might be one of the best that I have ever seen.
|Feb-18-06|| ||JohnBoy: Agreed <AJ> - a superb game. I also like 30...d4, whereby Karpov gives back his pawn for a deciding endgame advantage.|
|Feb-18-06|| ||lopium: Queen is Reina, but we say "dama" in Spanish for the Queen at chess, and "dame" in French instead of Reine; even if some people say the other way, but in books it's as I said.|
|Feb-18-06|| ||Mateo: <chessnme: 35. nc5 seems to be a less agressive move than e5> I guess you meant 36. Nc5. White cannot play 36. Ne5 because of 36... d3!. If 36. Nd3? (or 36. Nf7) Qf3, Black wins. In any case, Black will win easily with the advance of the d pawn to d2.|
|Feb-18-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: Great game, particularly the endgame!
Did Karpov win Linares in 1994?
|Feb-18-06|| ||Jim Bartle: Yes, with what is considered the best tournament performance ever. I think he was 11/13.|
|Feb-18-06|| ||I3illieJoe: The Spanish word for Queen is reina as you said, but in chess "dama" is used more often|
|Feb-18-06|| ||dakgootje: Nice game!
ps: If 36. Ne5 then 36. ...d3 is probably best indeed, but what about 36. ...Ng4.
|Feb-18-06|| ||vizir: wow
Karpov is so impressive in this game
|Feb-18-06|| ||meloncio: <lopium><I3illieJoe><The Spanish word for Queen is reina as you said, but in chess "dama" is used more often> Yes, it's true, and the reason is that "Rey" (King) and "Reina" have the same initial "R". Using Dama (D) for Queen we avoid the confusion.|
|Feb-18-06|| ||al wazir: <ReikiMaster: the Spanish word for queen is reina.> And the word for rain is "lluvia." I can't help that. "Rain" and "Reine" are homonyms.|
|Feb-18-06|| ||McCool: why not 28. exd5|
|Feb-18-06|| ||foxbat: McCool, the problem with 28. exd5 is 28. exd5 g5! The queen is lost.|
|Feb-18-06|| ||jackmandoo: I tell you what, 27...e5 was a damn nice move. This is what I like about Karpov. The willingness to use seemingly useless peices on the board (I'm obviously referring to pawns) to form some sort of complicated attack. Karpov is the ONLY master that has been effective in pawn use. Most of his games he even opens with something like E4 or D4! This is amazing! (Also you know whenever those birds fly real low to the water and scoop out a fish? I think that is amazing too; I didn't want you guys to think that i was forgetting about that, obviously this is something else that I am impressed with, Bravo you couragous birds....bravo....|
|Feb-18-06|| ||ajile: This is pretty lame play by White. Bf1 and Ne1? Since when is moving your pieces away from the center a good policy? It's not like he was moving them to better spots. It seems to me that I see games like this where the weaker player is simply intimidated by the stronger player and plays for a draw as White.|
|Feb-18-06|| ||kevin86: Black will soon move to hide behind his pawns---a win is soon in the offing,so black resigns.|
|Feb-21-06|| ||chessnme: <Mateo: <chessnme: 35. nc5 seems to be a less agressive move than e5> I guess you meant 36. Nc5. White cannot play 36. Ne5 because of 36... d3!. If 36. Nd3? (or 36. Nf7) Qf3, Black wins. In any case, Black will win easily with the advance of the d pawn to d2.>|
white did play 36.nc5 and allowed black 36....d3 anyway. the white knight was threatened and a move was needed, but e5 was far superior.
If black played 36 Knight to e5 that would have protected against Blacks potential Qf3 move.
|Feb-22-06|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Much of what I said on this page, (Alekhine vs Stoltz, 1942); applies here as well. (Q+P endgames.)|
|Dec-03-06|| ||aldehyde: hey people, do you think that 43...Qd2+ would have gained black with a free bishop?|
|Dec-03-06|| ||Open Defence: <adelhyde> 43..Qd2+? allows White to get a perpetual check with 44.Kh3 Bxf3 45.Qf5+! I think...... check it out...|
|Dec-03-06|| ||Benzol: It does look like after 43...♕d2+ Black would have been able to pick up the bishop.|
|Dec-03-06|| ||Open Defence: <Benzol> no perpetual check for White after 43..Qd2+ ?|
|Dec-03-06|| ||Benzol: <Open Defence> I'm blind, I totally missed that. Thanks.|
|Dec-03-06|| ||Open Defence: <Benzol> actually it looks like we are both right... Black gets the bishop... but ...not the game if he plays 43..Qd2+|
you guys are much stronger than me so I was wondering if I missed anything...
|Feb-15-18|| ||tgyuid: it is possible for the queen to be harassed by the opposing king; dude|
