  tpstar: <Giancarlo> Beautiful analysis! Before my input, any chess coach would state the obvious how Black made 6/8 opening moves with his Knight = the usual recipe for disaster. Moreover, 8 ... Ne6?! was weak (8 ... Ng6 9. Ne5/Ng5 e6) and 11 ... Kxe6? was bad (11 ... Ke8 12. Qh5+ g6 13. Bxd7+ Bxd7 14. Qxc5 with a horrible game for Black was the only hope). After 12. Qb3+ Kd6 13. Nb5+ Kc6 14. Qe6+! Kxb5 15. a4+ Ka5 16. d3 threatens 17. Bd2++ - here 16 ... Kb4? 17. Bd2++; 16 ... b6 17. Qc6 wins the Ra8 (17 ... Ka6 18. Qxa8; 17 ... a6?/Ba6? 18. Bd2++); leaving 16 ... Nb6 17. Bd2+ Ka6 18. a5 is crushing. The rest of your analysis is clean (except typos and omitting "+") until 21. Rh5+ where you should also note 21 ... Kg4 22. f3+ Kg3 23. Ne2++. Congratulations on your outstanding, thorough annotations! tpstar
Jul-31-04  Giancarlo: Thanks tpstar. Ya I noticed I forgot about the check symol, thanks for the correction. Thanks for checking out my annotations, it means a lot, I spent alot of time on it!Thanks for poitning out what I missed.

I'll do this for my next game as well which I'm beginning to study.

Oct-12-04  DanielBryant: Why not simply take the queen on move 19?
Oct-12-04  Knezh: Because it's not forced

  offramp: In these king hunts I always look for the one non-checking move. That's the important one.
Nov-27-04  themindset: <tpstar> 8...Ne6 is theory, and the only move played in that position out of 28 games in my openings database. It is also given by fritz as being better for black.
Nov-27-04  themindset: (better for black, than 8...Ng6 - white still has a slight edge, of course)

  GreenCastle: WOW.

9...♘d7??

Oct-05-05  lopium: Krick krack pov! Hehez. Nice game, white looks lost at the beginning, but how a reversed situation after the 12th move, and before.
Jun-29-06  Poisonpawns: A beautiful sacrificial game:Black broke the rules and wad crushed duly
Nov-09-09  seigneur: It takes nerves of steel not to play 19.Nxg6!
May-14-11  Calar: Great game and brilliant attack by Pinter. Still, as seigneur noticed, 19.Nxg6 was way simpler.

I'm thinking Pinter probably saw all the way to mate when he decided to play 19.Qg5+. Admirable.

Aug-07-14  brimarern: This game is SICK!

Quick, what are some basic principles of opening play? Develop your pieces, don't waste time, don't move the same piece twice, castle early, etc.

White proceeds to break at least 3 of the above mentioned principles (moves his king before castling, moves his KN twice, whites Queen side remains undeveloped) and wins brilliantly!!

Nov-15-15  Rookiepawn: <Calar: Great game and brilliant attack by Pinter. Still, as seigneur noticed, 19.Nxg6 was way simpler.>

I don't agree. After 19. Nxg6 hxg6 the BK has an escape through h7. Of course Black is lost anyway, but White's line forces mate so it is in fact the shortest way to victory. And much more elegant.
