|Apr-11-08|| ||Knight13: <Korchnoi was always struggling after 18.Nf6+.> That's because 11. Bxe6! is the right move against 10...d4. This opening was repeated in the previous match but didn't play Bxe6. Or maybe not. 14...c5 I think saves Black from Nf6+. But too many tactical tricks on that d4 knight and c5 pawn!|
|Nov-03-08|| ||Woody Wood Pusher: Fantastic game with some classy moves! 27.Rf1! keeps everything under control.|
|Nov-03-08|| ||charlie2000: Woldn't gxf6 be best after Nf6+?
|Nov-03-08|| ||Eyal: <Wouldn't gxf6 be best after Nf6+?>|
Yeah, looks like it - 17...gxf6 18.exf6 Rd8(!) - to defend against rook lifts by White (18...Bd6? 19.Rd4!).
|Nov-03-08|| ||charlie2000: How can this be seen as good? It's real low ebb.|
|Nov-03-08|| ||Eyal: After Korchnoi's win in game 6 of the match, Karpov and his team turned to do some serious "repair work" in the Open Spanish, Karpov playing in the meanwhile 2 Giuoco Pianos in game 8&10 and English in game 12. Karpov's new idea was 12.cxd4 followed by 13.Ne4, and Korchnoi went wrong with 14...Nxf3+; the right move is 14...Nf5, played by Korchnoi in game 16 which ended in a draw. They repeated this line for the third time in game 18, where Karpov varied by 13.a4 and won again.|
|Nov-03-08|| ||charlie2000: It could be said that when Ko. had real chances.. in first match he was btrayed by Keene when at 5-5 K went to telex his sealed move as he was writing a book coming out at same time...instead of analyzing. So the seconds of Karp were able to spend all night preparing a trap for the next day. Ko. then lost.
I think Fisch who was always supportive of dissidents from Russia must have been moved at the thought o another man threatening the Russian machn. Think Ka never critised regime at all until it collapsed.. and was even persuaded to play in a 'Fide match' when Kasp and Short left. How sad that we are shown games of Ko. that an amateur might have played.|
|Nov-03-08|| ||JonathanJ: some analysis
17. ... gxf6
18. Bh6 fxe5 --- 18. ... Kh8
19. Qg3+ Bg5 -- 19. ... Kh8 ---- 19. Bxf8 Bxf8
20. Bxg5 Nxg5 - 20. Qxe5+ Kg8 - 20. exf6
21. Qxg5+ Kh8 - 21. Rd3
22. Gf6+ Kg8

When was the last time you saw an amateur play a game like this then?
Maybe people in your part of the world are just smarter...
|Nov-03-08|| ||charlie2000: Woody Wood pusher.. where am I?|
|Nov-03-08|| ||Everett: <<charlie2000:> How sad that we are shown games of Ko. that an amateur might have played.> |
<charlie2000: ... where am I?>
It seems you are lost.
|Nov-03-08|| ||charlie2000: i happen to know what I'm saying. No doubt Woody's comment 'your part of the world 'is a racist jibe 'cos i put up a cartoon pic of Anand. Another great defeater of Russians..
Woody are you made of wood?|
|Nov-03-08|| ||Everett: <charlie2000> <No doubt Woody's comment 'your part of the world 'is a racist jibe 'cos i put up a cartoon pic of Anand.>|
|Nov-03-08|| ||newzild: Charlie2000: Woody Wood Pusher didn't say anything even remotely racist. I think you've misuderstood him because English isn't your first language.|
This was a fine game by Karpov. It must be said that 17.Nf6+ shouldn't have been too hard for Korchnoi to spot.
Maybe there was nothing better for black than to "castle into it", given that 0-0-0 will never be an option.
|Nov-03-08|| ||Ladolcevita: I can understand amauter's move0.0`|
|Nov-03-08|| ||Woody Wood Pusher: < charlie2000: i happen to know what I'm saying. No doubt Woody's comment 'your part of the world 'is a racist jibe 'cos i put up a cartoon pic of Anand.>|
This guy logs onto a chess website to call Korchnoi an 'amateur' and make baseless accusations about racism..?
A true Renaissance man no doubt.
|Nov-03-08|| ||Ladolcevita: <WOODY WOOD PUSHER>Is your icon a portrait of Van Gogh?And Renaissance man??
But ithink WOODY WOODY PUSHER means no rasim at all,he is just using his brand-irony......0.0!!|
|Nov-03-08|| ||AnalyzeThis: It's amazing that Korchnoi lasted as long as he did. It looked like he was getting killed from the get go.|
|Nov-03-08|| ||kevin86: It looked like black's queen and rook were about to mate,when the black lady was called home to protect her king.|
|Nov-03-08|| ||mjmorri: <Charlie2000> I have no doubt that if an amateur had the white pieces against Korchnoi after 19...Rd8, he would lose.|
It took exceptional technique from Karpov to bring home the full point against Korchnoi's stubborn resistance.
|Nov-03-08|| ||mworld: white 40.f5 would make a very insane puzzle!|
|Nov-03-08|| ||charlie2000: mjmorri>
i can't think of anything more obvious than to advance the h-pawn
|Nov-03-08|| ||datachess4: 17...gxf6 18.Bh6 Ng5! whites attack goes nowhere|
|Nov-04-08|| ||Eyal: <datachess4: 17...gxf6 18.Bh6 Ng5! whites attack goes nowhere>|
White might actually still gain some advantage with 19.Qf5; better for Black is 18...Kh8 19.exf6 Bd6 20.Bxf8 Qxf8, or even simply 18...fxe5, where White has nothing better than forcing a perpetual with 19.Qg3+ Kh8 20.Qxe5+ etc.
In case of 17...gxf6, the right move for White is 18.exf6, but even then - as I mentioned in a previous post - Black would be better off than in the game after 18...Rd8.
|Jan-16-09|| ||M.D. Wilson: <It took exceptional technique from Karpov to bring home the full point against Korchnoi's stubborn resistance.> That probably best sums it up. At the end, there was nothing Korchnoi could do.|
