  chrisowen: Shucks! What a star game. Play right 9..b5 is go between leopard spotting uncastled king. 17.a5 is too much andro perchance. Digs for the life of Pinter constellation black knight rooks and cleric sure pray tell white's missed chances. 25.c7 ups Portisch's hunt. Er skin it off once delivered Ne5 is the howler.
Jul-15-10  scormus: Tremendous open game, toe-to-toe exchange of punches. Tarrasch would have loved it.
Jul-15-10  Lutwidge: I still think the pun I suggested roughly a year ago is better.

Way better.

Hrumph.

  Jim Bartle: It's witty, Lutwidge, but "Discovered checks" just doesn't sound close enough to "discontent." At least to me.

And all the clouds that lour'd upon our house
In the deep bosom of the ocean buried>

I think it's a brilliant connection, Lutwidge. I'd have voted for your pun anyday.

Jul-15-10  The Famous Chess Cat: <Hafen Slawkenbergius: I wonder why nobody called attention yet to a very rare occurence in this game: four checks in two moves!>

Just imagine incorporating double checks into something like that.

Jul-20-10  accuristau: What a brilliant game!!
Magnificent!
Jul-20-10  gmalino: only hungarians can play like this. in some way it's a very different style compared to the russians, isn't it? i'm stunned.
Aug-09-10  sevenseaman: Pinter dictates the game from the moment he moves his K into the attack ceding the N on c6 in this position;

Hereafter his ws bishop on c8 controls the game, with itself immune to any threats; like a general in a vantage point directing intricate battle moves.

  offramp: Really a good game! Pinter, of course, had not quite seen everything, even though he saw the checks and the various mates, but I shall never sleep calmly again when I think of the horrors that lurk ceaselessly behind life in time and in space, and of those unhallowed blasphemies from elder stars which dream beneath the sea, known and favoured by a nightmare cult ready and eager to loose them on the world whenever another earthquake shall heave their monstrous stone city again to the sun and air.
Nov-08-12  Golfergopher: What a beautiful attack. Those checks and counterchecks are mind boggling.
Nov-08-12  srgntshultz: I remember the first time I saw this game in ChessLife in the mid 80's. Sitting there - shell shocked, after the last six moves.

  FSR: I never saw this before. Very cool game, and a great advertisement for the underused Semi-Tarrasch.
