|Mar-30-04|| ||aulero: Very nice game. 20.♖xe5+ is a wordeful shot! |
|Mar-30-04|| ||Honza Cervenka: Amazing game. If 30...Kg8, then 31.Ne6 Qd3+ 32.Kxe5 Qe2+ 33.Kd6 Qd3+ 34.Ke7 Qf3 35.Rc7 Qf7+ 36.Kd6 and the game is over.|
By the way, another Pinter's brilliancy is Portisch vs Pinter, 1984
|Mar-30-04|| ||Whitehat1963: Unbelievable. Let's see how much I can give you and still win. |
|Apr-22-04|| ||Thunderbunny350: Incredible. I believe this has to be the most original mate in the history of the game. |
|Apr-22-04|| ||seoulmama: Thunderbunny, actually it is not too uncommon, known as the "Arabian mate". This guy Pinter has played some brilliant games, like this and the one with Portisch where he hunts White's king down in a queenless middlegame with some great sacs. |
|Apr-22-04|| ||Jim Bartle: Hard to imagine how Pinter could calculate that black didn't have a perpetual after 24. Bh6. Gutsy. |
|Apr-22-04|| ||BeautyInChess: 32. Kd6!! Excellent |
|Nov-11-12|| ||sandormatyas: Can anyone tell if Bxc6 by white on move 17 would lead to equality?|
|Nov-14-15|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Astounding brilliancy. Am I to assume that 8.Rc1 was a prepared trap?|
|Nov-14-15|| ||MarkFinan: I think you're right, mate. I don't know how sound all those sacs are, but Wow! A truly brilliant game.|
|Nov-14-15|| ||offramp: It's a bit like M Kupferstich vs H Andreasen, 1953.|
|Nov-14-15|| ||j3st3da8om3: Why he sacrifice queen for lightsquare bishop on 10..d1 ?Black had got a win and lead but he didn't used it.
Black shouldn't took on 15.f4 he need open with d6 and took out queen and made attack and develop your knight and rook.|
|Nov-14-15|| ||Ferro: angustia|
|Nov-14-15|| ||Ferro: anguish|
|Nov-14-15|| ||FairyPromotion: Marvelous game! Queen sacs are great fun at any rate, but following them with king marches can make the games very special. The only other examples that I know of are R Steel vs NN, 1886 & H Geiger vs W Wurm, 1930. Are there any others?|
|Nov-14-15|| ||Ferro: no, gracias|
|Nov-14-15|| ||thegoodanarchist: With only 1 page of comments, I would say that there is not a lot of <Pinterest> in this game|
|Nov-14-15|| ||kevin86: Black was in trouble when the king was centralized by force...he was in REAL trouble when the white came in to help force mate.|
|Nov-14-15|| ||Rookiepawn: <An Englishman: Good Evening: Astounding brilliancy. Am I to assume that 8.Rc1 was a prepared trap?>|
Probably, but not very clear to me. The rook ends up taking on d1, so 8. Rc1 actually loses a tempo. Maybe 0-0 was better.
Besides, I am not sure about the Q sac. 11... e5 and 12... g6 are just hole makers imho. I would prefer 11... 0-0 followed by c6.
Black needs to hold the position against White's minor pieces, tricky but not impossible I guess.
|Nov-14-15|| ||morfishine: Brilliant game|
|Nov-14-15|| ||nilba: Why didn't white take the rook in the 15th move?|
|Nov-14-15|| ||Rookiepawn: <nilba: Why didn't white take the rook in the 15th move?>|
I guess because the rook cannot escape until move 17, and then W threatens mate in two (with Re4 and Rf1) so 17... f6 is forced. White takes the rook after a check in move 19.
|Nov-15-15|| ||newhampshireboy: I love this game!|
|Nov-16-15|| ||Honza Cervenka: <Jim Bartle: Hard to imagine how Pinter could calculate that black didn't have a perpetual after 24. Bh6.> He did not calculate it and black in fact could draw the game but apparently he was trying to win with his material advantage. 29...Qxe2+? seems to be a decisive mistake, 29...Qh3 was better defense.|
