|Oct-04-03|| ||Catholic Bishop: 38.Qf8+ Hahaha how sad. Resigning when you have 2 queens must be too painful. |
|Apr-21-04|| ||Honza Cervenka: What's wrong with 21.Nxe5? |
|Apr-21-04|| ||ConLaMismaMano: I guess 21.Nxe5 dxe5 22.Qxe7 Bd6 23.Qh4 Qxc2 24.Rab1 (if Rfb1 then black replies with Bc5 threats check in f2) |
|Apr-21-04|| ||Honza Cervenka: <ConLaMismaMano> I don't think that this is the right reason for not to play 21.Nxe5. If 21.Nxe5 dxe5 22.Qxe7 Bd6 23.Qh4, then 23...Qxc2 loses the game immediately for simple 24.Be4. |
|Apr-21-04|| ||ConLaMismaMano: You're right Honza Cervenka, then i don't know the reason why Nxe5 wasn't played. What about 21.Nxe5 dxe5 22.Qxe7 Bd6 23.Qh4 23f5? how do you stop that pawn? |
|Apr-21-04|| ||weepingwarrior: I respect Kamsky and his great chess ability, but I love to see him lose to Judit. Hooray for Judit, take it to em'. |
|Apr-22-04|| ||tamar: <Honza Cervenka, ConlaMismaMano> Hard to believe either player just missed 21 Nxe5. Kamsky may have felt it wasn't worth it to free the black bishop. Following ConLaMismaMano's second line 21...dxe5 22 Qxe7 Bd6 23 Qh4 f5, Fritz 7 does not recommend acively pushing the c pawn, my first thought, but its best alternative 24 Rae1 b5 25 Re2 Rbc8 looks fine for Black , as Judit's pieces all would have slightly better scope than White's, and Kamsky's queen on h4 would still be without an exit strategy. The pawns look strongest and most flexible staying on f5 and e5, putting the onus on White to show a win. And without a path to freedom for the queen, White starts that process with his major piece sidelined, and his plans therefore limited. |
|Sep-15-11|| ||engineerX: A beautiful combination by black.
37...h5! is probably the move Kamsky missed. Black makes a square for her King (h7) and simultaneously cuts the white King off the g4 square.
(most players would only look at 37...Qh1+? 38. Kg4 h5+ 39. Kxg5 ).
This could be a puzzle of the say some day.
