|Mar-30-05|| ||patzer2: <drukenknight> After 15...Bd7?! 16.Re3+! Ne4 17.Rxe4+! dxe4 18.Qe5+ Be6 19.Nf5! , Black can resign as the threats of 20. Nd6+ or 20. Nxg7+ are decisive.|
For example, play might continue 19. Nf5! Rg8 20.Nd6+! Kd7 21.Bxe4 f6 22.Qb5+! Kc7 23.Nxb7 Qd7 24.Bd6+ Kc8 25.Qc5+ Qc6 26.Qxc6#
|Mar-31-05|| ||drukenknight: yes Patzer this is still a mess....
What about 14...Nc4 did he Minic move the wrong N?
|Apr-01-05|| ||patzer2: <drukenknight> In the sense that 14...Nc4!? puts up a better defense, Black did move the wrong Knight. |
However, after 14...Nc4 15.Nf5 f6 16.Bc1 Bxf5 17.Rxf5 Qd7 18.Bxe4 dxe4 19.Rc5 Nb6 20.Bf4± White has a comfortable advantage and Black has a difficult if not impossible defense.
|Apr-01-05|| ||drukenknight: you are overlooking 16...00 in that line. |
|Apr-10-05|| ||patzer2: <drukenknight> At a glance, I'd guess White was better after 16...0-0 17. Rf5 . |
|Apr-11-05|| ||drukenknight: whatever, my glances usually take less than 10 days to occur and anyhow have you had a chance to punch it into computer in all this time are all you simply winging it? |
|Apr-11-05|| ||patzer2: <drunkenknight> I'm winging it. My PC crashed and I was away from the computer for over a week. I haven't reloaded Fritz 8. Thinking of buying Shredder 9 instead. |
|Apr-11-05|| ||drukenknight: okay I guess I will have to punch it into the crap pc... |
|Apr-11-05|| ||drukenknight: patzer: hello again. I dont think Rf5 is playable, there is a N on f5, no?|
Here is the line we have so far (at least I think so):
15. Nf5 f6
16. Bc1 O-O
assuming patzer meant Rf4, then this line looks like almost absolute equality:
17. Rf4 Bxf5
18. Rxf5 Re8
19. Bxe4 Rxe4
20. Qxb7 Nb6
21. Rf2 Qe8
crap pc, says -0.01. So far I think we have located the source of Minic's problem. Or maybe I am missing something..
|Apr-11-05|| ||patzer2: Finally, got the computer program loaded, and Fritz 8 gave almost the same as your's with 14... Nc4 15. Nf5 f6 16. Bc1 O-O 17. Rf4 Bxf5 18. Rxf5 Re8 19. Qxb7 Nb6 20. Bxe4 Rxe4 21. a4 Rxe2 22. a5 Re7 23. Qc6 Re1+ 24. Kf2 Qe7 25. Qb5 Qe4 26. axb6 Rxc1 27. Rxc1 Qxf5+ 28. Kg1 axb6 29. Re1 h6 30. Qxb6 Rc8 31. Re3 Rc4 32. Kg2 Kh7 =. |
So, it looks dead even after 14...Nc4!
|Apr-11-05|| ||drukenknight: crap pc or Fritz 8? You make the call. See if patzer can bust my lines. |
|May-27-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 26 Rxc4!!|
|Nov-23-13|| ||morfishine: Keen sense of danger
|Nov-23-13|| ||kevin86: Black is about to lose the queen. White will be up a pawn,queen,and two pieces for two rooks.EZ win!|
|Nov-23-13|| ||Domdaniel: Fascinating kibitz dialog from 2005 ... ou sont les patzers d'antan? Ou est le GM Mondo?|
|Nov-23-13|| ||Doniez: Oh, great pin will follow after move 28. I love this kind of combination. Does anybody know the meaning of the pun? Thanks|
|Nov-23-13|| ||Jimfromprovidence: "Manic Depression" is a song written and recorded by Jimi Hendrix and first released in 1967 on the Are You Experienced album”.|
Great album! I was a sophomore in high school when it came out.
Song link below.
|Nov-23-13|| ||goldfarbdj: It's a song, but it's also the old psychiatrist's term for what's now called "bipolar disorder".|
|Nov-24-13|| ||Moszkowski012273: What a horrible move 14...Nd2 is. Can't believe a 2500 would play it.|
|Nov-24-13|| ||Moszkowski012273: Also engines prefer the lines stemming from 14.Rxf7... but it looks pretty difficult for an actual person to play.|
|Nov-24-13|| ||ray keene: I can truthfully say that I never even considered 14 Rxf7.|
|Nov-24-13|| ||Moszkowski012273: And I sure as hell don't blame ya.|
|Nov-25-13|| ||SChesshevsky: Master Keene, were you able to have a post-mortem after the game? 14. Ba3 looked like a killer and it feels like Minic knew he was busted. Did it seem that way OTB?|
|Nov-25-13|| ||Domdaniel: It seems that Mr Keene is an "actual person" ... who said that historical research never achieved anything?|
|Nov-25-13|| ||Domdaniel: It's a pity we don't know what day of the week this game was played on.
"Just Another Minic Monday" would have been fun.|
