Nov-11-16  CountryGirl: Sorry, why the 'Brisbane Bombshell' ?? Is the game somehow a good looking blonde female? or some reincarnation of late premier Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen?? wth?

As noted on earlier pages, the title is a reference to Tim Krabbé's chess short story "Master Jacobson"; you can read it at http://timkr.home.xs4all.nl/text/ja... if you're interested.

  perfidious: < Haiderobeiss: Had Karpov played the e4 opening ever after this game ?>

He tended to play largely 1.d4 thereafter, with some instances of 1.c4 and against high-class opposition, almost abandoned 1.e4.

  Zhbugnoimt: Unfortunately Kasparov's sac isn't sound.
12.Be3! Bxe3 13.Qa4+ Bd7 14.Qxb4 leaves White with an edge. But still, one of the greatest opening shots of all time. I bet Karpov mentally dumped his pants when he saw that.

But Bxe3 isn't forced is it? Black could play 12...Qc7 or Qe7 or Bd6 or even b6. Are all those moves bad?
May-06-17  ZackyMuhammad: 16...♘ d3!!
May-06-17  Joker2048: Nearly hundred times I go through this game and I'm not tired of it... Just perfect play by Garry.

We were looking for double r's, not quadruple l's.

Your suggestion would be good for a game by Guillermo Llanos

Jul-02-17  ZackyMuhammad: What after 34. Bxe4? or ♖xe4?. Please, tell me.

  HeMateMe: in most of the capture/recaptures on e4 black wins with a Knight fork on f2 that results in winning the exchange or is up a piece after a Rook check on e1 picks off the Knight on b1.
Jul-24-17  bla bla: why not 35.kg1?
Jul-24-17  Howard: In response to that inquiry...take a look at White's queen, on d3 !
