|Dec-22-05|| ||twinlark: <KingG What's Larsen got to do with it?>|
Absolutely nothing whatsoever. I misspelt Korchnoi.
|Dec-22-05|| ||KingG: <twinlark> Yeah, i thought so, just having a bit of fun. :-)|
|Dec-27-05|| ||offramp: << offramp: Mind you, I have seen about a dozen games where, in the King's Indian, black black-squared bishop is worth about a queen.
<child of my tears: <offramp> Unbelievable! Can you point me to the games?>>>|
Here is a good one:
Bobotsov vs Tal, 1958
|Jan-05-06|| ||you vs yourself: I just saw this game. Really mind-boggling game by Kaspy. Just when I thought, nothing else will top this before I go to bed, I saw <yunis>'s post;)|
|Jan-05-06|| ||offramp: <you vs yourself> I agree with Yunis. Wouldn't it have been better if the money spent on this game had been spent on building hospitals?|
|Jan-13-06|| ||Kola: This game exemplifies total domination in chess. It is beautiful!!! i have played through it atleast 30 times, and each time I do, it seems more interesting.|
|Jan-14-06|| ||morpstau: T best Kasparov game ever played!!|
|Mar-07-06|| ||notsodeepthought: Great game, but can anyone explain the pun...?|
|Mar-07-06|| ||badbishops: Kasparov loved this game the most from that match. Karpov's pieces were never so embarassed before and the monster knight on D3 sealed the deal. The refutation is: Karpov should not have played 12.00? instead he should have played the line the Geller suggested which is 12. Be3 Bxe3 13. QA4+ and black is down a pawn without sufficient compensation|
|Mar-07-06|| ||cu8sfan: <Great game, but can anyone explain the pun...?> Same problem here.|

"The Brisbane Bombshell" may have been a vulgar sports slogan
designed to allow a public that didn't even know how the pieces
moved to gloat over Peltz's successes - but it was definitely on
target. Chess players themselves were talking about the Brisbane
Bombshell, and although Jacobson would never call it that in
writing, at times the term would come to mind when he happened
to be thinking of Peltz's miracle move.
In Brisbane, Australia, not long before Jacobson's simul at
Wilhelmus, Jaap Peltz, at forty-two, had achieved the biggest
success of his life by winning his match against Feoktistov and
becoming the challenger of world champion Neishtadt. It was a
completely unexpected and somewhat undeserved victory, but
mostly what was still creating a buzz in the chess world was the
way Peltz had pulled it off.
With the score even, Peltz had won the last game, with
Black no less, thanks to an extremely bold pawn sacrifice in the
early opening: 8...d5! - precisely the move that White had been
playing to prevent. It was the Novelty of the Century; in the fifty
years that this position had occurred in games, no one, from club
player to the world champion, had even considered that d5 might
be possible. It was as if Peltz had demonstrated that no parachute
was needed to jump out of an airplane.

Hopefully this comment won't generate a vast swathe of copyright/internet posts.... Yaaawn.

Well given black also gets a rook for the queen, and puts it to good use, I disagree with the statement that 'the bishop is worth about a queen'.
If you don't believe it, take the extra rook off and try to win as black.
|Mar-07-06|| ||Hobgoblin: <gprice> Thank you very much for the link to Mr.Crabbe's insightful story. I read it this morning and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Tell me how did you chance upon the story in the first instant?|
|Mar-07-06|| ||offramp: <Marvol> How about this one? Portisch vs Kavalek, 1975|
|Mar-07-06|| ||Bobwhoosta: This game appears in Seirawan's Winning Chess Brilliancies. It's a great game as white is playing not for something immediately tangible, but to grab more and more squares. The pawn advances on the k.s. are almost all given "!" or "!!" because they keep the white forces at bay, and aren't easily concieved.|
|Mar-07-06|| ||Jim Bartle: Seirawan's analysis emphasizes the placement of the black knight on d3 and the total restriction of the black knights on a4 and b1.|
|Mar-07-06|| ||itz2000: wow! great game by black|
|Mar-07-06|| ||TigerPawns: to deny this as one of the greatest games played is to not understand it, folks.|
|Mar-07-06|| ||cjrubiks: TigerPawns, I agree. So many "great" games are, say, Marshall vs. Nobody, where Nobody makes about 38 lousy moves, and Marshall wins through a "brilliant" queen sac leading to a two-move mate. This game features two incredible players at the top of their games, with Kasparov putting in a forceful and dominating performance with a deep and beautiful plan.|
Kasparov's conception of 21 ... g5!! (completely restricting Karpov's kingside pieces) and 23 ... Nd7! (enabling him to protect the d3 knight if needed, among other things) was nothing short of beautiful.
Those who don't appreciate the brilliance of this game need to look at Karpov's position after move 26. One of the greatest players of all time has not a single useful move on a nearly full chessboard. An unforgettable game.
|Mar-07-06|| ||gprice: I yahoo searched 'Brisbane Bombshell'. That's all.|
|Mar-07-06|| ||kevin86: What a show stopper! Karpov was a good champion,Kasparov was a GREAT champion,as this game shows.|
