|Nov-18-09|| ||lost in space: o.k., I think now I have a side solution (I have no clue if this was posted before):|
14. Nf5+ Bxf5 15. Qh6+
(15. Rxf5? h6! 16. Qg4! Nxg4? (16...Nbd7 17. Ne4 Kh7 18. Nxf6 Nxf6 19. Rxf6 Qxf6 20. Rf1 Qc6 21. Qh4 g5 22. Bxg5; White is more than fine but Black is still not completely lost) 17. Rf7+ Kg8 Rd7#)
15...Kxh6 16. Rh4++ Kg7 17. Bh6#
I move more compared to the game
|Nov-18-09|| ||doubledrooks: 14. Qh6+ Kxh6 15. Rh4++ Kg7 16. Bh6# gets the job done with no muss and fuss.|
|Nov-18-09|| ||David2009: <JG27Pyth: Well, as usual engine analysis is enlightening (and a bit surprising)... 9.f4 was indeed a blunder, and 10.Rxf4! correct... but after 10...e5 Keres' 11.Bc5+?! was a weak 2nd best continuation that let Verbac back into the game (11.Rxf6! was winning). However Verbac's 11...Kxf7? was as stupid as it looked and pure losing. He should have played the natural 11...Bd7 with plenty of hope remaining.>|
You are quite right! 11...Bd7

12 Ne6! works ONLY if the Queen moves. Unfortunately Black simply hands back the material with 12 exf4 13 Nxd8 Kxd8 to leave

and White will lose another piece.
I give Crafty credit for all this - I thought Ne6 was winning. Crafty link: http://www.chessvideos.tv/endgame-t...
Keres vs Verbac 11?
|Nov-18-09|| ||psmith: <JG27Pyth>, <David2009> 11...Bd7 12. Bxd7+ is better, and seems good for White.|
12...Nbxd7 13. Ne6
12...Nfxd7 13. Ne6
12...Kxd7 13. N2f3! exf4 (13...Kc8 14. Nxe5) 14. Nc6+
12...Qxd7 13. Rxf6 gxf6 14. Ne4 Be7 15. Qh5+ Kd8 16. Rd1 Kc7 17. Nc3! exd4 18. Rxd4 Qe6 19. Re4 Qc6 20. Rxe7+ (with help from Fritz 5.32)

Don't get me wrong, after 11...Bd7 White has the better game in more than one variation... it's just that Kf7 loses outright. 11...Bd7 leaves Black with reason to continue. By no means is he equal. I believe with accurate play he ends up down a full pawn without compensation.

Lol! You are showing your age. Alot of our younger Kibitzers may not get that one.
BTW, if the Professor could make cars out of bamboo and a radio out of a coconut, how come he coudn't patch a lousy hole in the boat!!!

Here you are, kids - educate yourselves!
|Nov-18-09|| ||LIFE Master AJ: I got this one.
I don't think you can be a true chess fan ... everyone should love the way Keres finished his opponent off here.
|Nov-18-09|| ||combokal2: <johnlspouge> here's the Gilligan's Island (vid) intro from the first season.|
|Jun-12-10|| ||whiteshark: <Werbak, E. (EST)>
"I have seen Black's name given as Verbac, Werbak and Vernacher and the
year as 1932, 1933 and 1934. According to an item by Carl Eric Erlandsson in E.
Winter's book "Chess Explorations" p51, Verbak and 1932 are correct. That
dating is right but the name is wrong. Valter Heuer's book "Meie Keres" ("Our
Keres" p.93) says the game was played between September and October 1932 i.e.
when Keres was 16. Heuer told me that "<Werbak>" was correct spelling; the
player was an Estonian so Heuer is almost certainly right."
-- Timothy David Harding in UltraCorr database
* Estonian Champion Valter Heuer wrote a.m. major Keres monograph
|Jun-12-10|| ||whiteshark: <13.... Ke8> was actually played. |
(13...Kg7 Dyckhoff's booklet "Fernschach-Kurzschlüsse" and the Steinkohl book "Faszination Fernschach" give the finish as 14.Qh6+ 1–0 <but this was just the start of a variation given by Keres>: 14...Kxh6 15.Rh4+ Kg7 16.Bh6#)
<14.Qxe5+ Qe7 15.Qxf6> Black resigned here, according to Fernschach, but Heuer gives more moves. <15...Qxe3+ 16.Kh1 Qxd2 17.Re4+ 1–0.>
Apparently Black resigned although Keres did not play the most precise move.[<17.Bb5+> forcing mate in 4] 1–0
|Jun-12-10|| ||CapablancaFan122: <whiteshark> So the actual continutation is 13..Ke8? I was wondering why black didn't play it.|
|Jun-12-10|| ||whiteshark: <CapablancaFan122: So the actual continutation is 13..Ke8?> Yes. <I was wondering why black didn't play it.> Well, he did. See my last post. :D|
|Jun-12-10|| ||chrisowen: Isnt it straightforwardness?
Hippopotomonstrosesquipedalianism who Keres?

Welcome aboard, Gilligan. Let's hope you stay for more than a three hour tour.>
Lol that was good!
|Jun-12-10|| ||kevin86: Black thought that he would win a piece. Instead,he suffered six straight on-the-bias checks,ending in mate.|

|Jun-12-10|| ||ajk68: Can anyone say "lack of development" ?|
|Jun-12-10|| ||whiteshark: <lack of development>!|
|Apr-28-11|| ||delibey: Keres utilizes an important defensive resource against forks: mate.|
|Aug-24-11|| ||sevenseaman: What a sleek and polished finish!|
|Aug-31-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Great game.|
|Sep-03-11|| ||bengalcat47: The final mating position resembles a Boden's Mate.|
|Dec-21-12|| ||Gambit All: Black developed 1 piece the whole game.|
|Dec-22-12|| ||Phony Benoni: Well, two, counting his king. Maybe his problem was overdevelopment:|
