Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-10-05  Resignation Trap: This game is a vivid example of Ivanov's level of creativity when he was at his peak. His Bishop, Knight and three Pawns overwhelm his opponent's Queen and Rook in this fantastic encounter.
Nov-10-05  Maroczy: <Resignation Trap> Back in the 80's when I was active on the New England tournament circuit I saw Igor many times. I always made it a point to watch his games during and after mine were over. I understand he's fighting the big C now, too bad, hope he wins that battle.
Nov-10-05  aw1988: <I understand he's fighting the big C now, too bad, hope he wins that battle.>

He's in the Norwegian championships!?

Nov-10-05  Maroczy: <aw1988> Cancer.
Nov-10-05  aw1988: I know, I know. I was making a joke in very poor taste. Best of luck to him. By the way, it's Carlsen.
Nov-24-05  aragorn69: Unfortunately, he did not make it...

  IMlday: Fine time-scramble nerves by Ivanov. Psychologically art, but of course Fritz finds lots of improvements for both sides. Weird chess! & thanks to Kavalek for preserving it, but I don't know if 9..c4 is as unthematic as he makes it out to be.
Nov-25-05  Craigokat: way to go Igor. I have the tournament boletin for this game which was played at the old Bar Point on 14th st and 6th ave. This game is indeed indicative of just how brilliant this man could play. When he became sick just recently, I sent him an e-mail and he assured me that a collection of his games was forthcomming.
Nov-25-05  Hidden Skillz: can somebody give a winning continuation on move 33.. after the rook would move instead of the queen?

Nov-25-05  EmperorAtahualpa: What a great GOTD! That pawn stampede is truly awesome.

Perhaps a better pun for this game (the day after Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade) would be "Igor's Pawn Parade". :)

Nov-25-05  dakgootje: yeah Igor Vasilievich Ivanov made nicely use of the pawns =)
Nov-25-05  SneechLatke: 32.h5!! Is absolutely stunning, although I wouldn't be surprised if Ivanov saw the idea when playing 25. Qxh6! (Though I certainly can't say I did).
Nov-25-05  Craigokat: correction. game was played at Kavkasian Int. which I directed, oops
Nov-25-05  THE pawn: Two rooks and one queen sacrificed to charge with a pawn swarm. Absolutely astonishing.

  kevin86: What a game!! White sacs the double exchange and queen to gain a killer phalanx of pawns! He "a-salt-ed" black in a chess sense.A fine finish indeed.

  OhioChessFan: Would 31........Rxf6 have helped Black?
Nov-11-07  sallom89: awesome game.
Mar-24-08  Whitehat1963: What happens after 35...Rh5?
Oct-06-10  Albertan: FM Robert Hamilton, who was editor of "Chess Canada" which is Canada's national chess magazine, asserts in an article he did about Igor Ivanov in "Chess Canada (February, 2006), after IM Ivanov passed away, that this game is "one of the most remarkable games ever played by a Canadian".
Feb-02-15  sharpnova: <aw1988>

It absolutely was not in poor taste.

<Maroczy>'s unnecessarily sobering reply was what was in poor taste.

A tactless comment that took your lighthearted joke which was more a celebration of this guy's life and turned it into a grim remark on his untimely death.

I will be blocking <Maroczy> from any future contact on this website.
