|Mar-24-11|| ||MaxxLange: <FSR> interesting, thanks|
|Mar-29-11|| ||hstevens129: What is the continuation after 18...Bf6?|
|Mar-29-11|| ||Oceanlake: Why would a GM let his knight be pinned and put a pawn so it shortened a bishop's reach, and fail to place his bishop where it could be exchanged when a (perhaps temporary) pawn ahead?|
|Mar-29-11|| ||ughaibu: Ordered to lose, obviously.|
|Mar-29-11|| ||rilkefan: This patzer immediately thought 16...Nxd4 was a really scary move to play.|
And this is so not a KID.
|Mar-29-11|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: This is indeed a Neo-Grunfeld by transposition and normally a very tough defense for White to break down. In my playing days the main line was 7.0-0,Nc6; 8.Ne5. Hjort's immediate Ne5 looks like a pretty good idea.|
|Mar-29-11|| ||Aniara: <hstevens129> 19. Qc4+ looks pretty decisive: at a minimum, it wins the bishop (if black plays 19. ... Be6, which is probably the best move since all other moves lose the queen or lead to mate).|
|Mar-29-11|| ||HeMateMe: Maybe black's 10...Nxe5 is wrong, it gives white too much space and development advantage. I thought white should develop his LSB and later, chase the knight away or capture it.|
Quite a pasting on Nunn, who must have been in the world's top 25 at the time.
|Mar-29-11|| ||kapitanevans: Very neat, long live Kasparov|
|Mar-29-11|| ||Everett: I believe 8..Ng4!? gives black good chances for early equality.|
|Mar-29-11|| ||perfidious: <Everett> At least 8....Ng4 or ....e6 have more to offer than the old move 8....Nc6.|
|Mar-29-11|| ||kevin86: Kasparov:none is better,not even Nunn.The attack is too strong!|
|Mar-29-11|| ||fab4: <kevin86: Kasparov:none is better,not even Nunn.The attack is too strong!> |
<not even Nunn.>... lol
|Mar-29-11|| ||TuxedoKnight: this game is interesting,
almost as interesting as http://tuxedoknight.uphero.com/
|Mar-29-11|| ||Phony Benoni: <Kevin86: Kasparov:none is better>|
Can Kasparov be all that good if having none would be better?
|Mar-29-11|| ||Antonina: Of course Nunn has a worse position but why not try f. ex.
19. Bxd4 Qxg5
20. Bd5+ Be6 where black's a bishop down but can look for a draw. I agree it's a lost game for black but I wouldn't give up so quickly.
|Mar-29-11|| ||HeMateMe: < Kasparov:none is better,not even Nunn.The attack is too strong!>|
I think Nunn is better than none.

Kasparov vs Nunn 1986 18...? <Antonina: Of course Nunn has a worse position but why not try f. ex. 18... Qe7 19. Bxd4 Qxg5 20. Bd5+ Be6> Crafty End Game Trainer check: http://www.chessvideos.tv/endgame-t... After 18 Ng5 the EGT does indeed play <Antonina>'s move 18...Qe7 but after 19. Bxd4 Qxg5 20. Bd5+ plays Kh8! saving the piece.
I agree that Nunn could have played on. There is a win after 18...Qe7: enjoy (A) finding it and (B) confirming it by playing it out against the EGT. I have found (B) much harder than (A).
|Mar-29-11|| ||Thanatos64: After 18. ... Qe7, the Crafty EGT elects to give the piece away after 19. Bd5+ Kh8 20. Nf7+ Kg8 21. Bxd4 Be6, where White ends up a piece ahead, although Black ends up snagging the a2 pawn with his queen. Nevertheless, it's an easy game from that point on. My guess is that Be6 is then to avoid Re1 followed up by Nd6 with a Re8 to come in the exd4 lines.|
|Mar-29-11|| ||Penguincw: Congratz on winning again <FSR>.Do you have a list of puns you submited for Game of the Day?|
|Mar-29-11|| ||WhiteRook48: I don't get Nunn's resignation|
|Mar-29-11|| ||HeMateMe: White has Q-c4+. black can't block the check without losing a piece. If he plays K-h8 he loses to a Knight fork in f7. If he plays K-e1, white has R-e1+ followed by mate at f7.|
|Mar-29-11|| ||sevenseaman: <WhiteRook48: I don't get Nunn's resignation>|
F7 is under intense pressure.
|Mar-30-11|| ||Peligroso Patzer: <An Englishman: Good Evening: This is indeed a Neo-Grunfeld by transposition *** >|
Indeed. Position after 7. ... 0-0 is <D79> per ECO classifications.
|Aug-13-11|| ||JCRchess: Sometimes even GMs forget the basics of early King safety.|
