|Mar-16-05|| ||sneaky pete: More usual is the move order 9.c3 Nc6 10.Qd2 .. when 10... g5 has been played (11.Kd1 0-0-0 12.Kc2 .. is recommended by Bhend in his 1971 book). 10... 0-0-0(?) seems to be the novelty. |
|Feb-09-07|| ||ajile: What about 17..Qxe4+? I don't have a board handy but this looks better than what Black actually played.|
|Feb-09-07|| ||mack: It's been a long time since I flicked through Neil McDonald's book on the King's Gambit, evaluating how far away from the exit I was and where the nearest security guards were, but I seem to remember the author describing Nosher sweating and visibly shaking during this game.|
|Feb-09-07|| ||schnarre: I've always been an Anderssen fan myself, & I always enjoy going over Steinitz's King-moving. It's nice to see their legacy resonating still!|
|Feb-09-07|| ||diemjay: wow...
|Feb-09-07|| ||MikeChesss: What about 20..Qb6 . This wins the bishop on f1. Or does this open Black's back rank to attack by White's Queen and advanced rook?|
|Feb-09-07|| ||kevin86: Harry Nelson Pillsbury once said:"Make sure when the fire is out-it isn't out".|
He was cautioning about an attack that could run out of steam. This game is a prime example of one that does. Now white will win easily,being a rook and bishop ahead.
|Feb-09-07|| ||Ashram64: not many players can survive a game w/ king is soo exposed...|
|Feb-09-07|| ||suenteus po 147: Short actually prepared the King's Gambit for this whole tournament. The other two times his 1.e4 was met with 1...e5 he played a King's Gambit. He did pretty well, too: +2 -1 =0 with the one loss coming from Shirov in this game: Short vs Shirov, 1997|
|Feb-09-07|| ||peabody88: <MikeChesss: What about 20..Qb6 . This wins the bishop on f1. Or does this open Black's back rank to attack by White's Queen and advanced rook?>|
After 20...♕b6+ There is 21.♖xb6 and black is in deep trouble now.
|Feb-09-07|| ||Shams: what happens on 17.Kxd4 <?>|
|Feb-09-07|| ||playground player: Why does it so often seem that the Cunningham Defense falls short? You'd think it'd really harass and scare White: which it does, but somehow the thrust never quite goes all the way to victory. In the words of Dr. Johnson, "The pleasure is transient and the position is ridiculous."|
|Feb-09-07|| ||Shams: <playground player> great quote, but I thought that was H.L. Mencken? Also, you left out "...and the consequences enormous".|
|Feb-09-07|| ||Fire on the Beard: Excellent game, much fun to watch. The White king was slippery as an eel.|
|Feb-09-07|| ||Themofro: Again game where the white king is way exposed but eventually wins is Henrik Danielson vs. Regina Pokorna Selfoss 2003.|
|Feb-10-07|| ||teak poker: So what in the world was wrong with 15...Qxp ? It seems very strong & forcing ?|
|Feb-13-07|| ||plang: 4 Nc3 certainly is bold allowing the KB to be blocked. 4 Bc4 is much more intuitive. McDonald says that Piket should not have given up his f pawn so easily; he recommends 10..g5. 12 Ke3 is quite clever with the idea of 13 Nh4 as well as 13 Bc4. 15 h3 is another clever move avoiding 15 e5..Ne5
16 de..Qb6+ 17 Kf4..Qf2#.
"So what in the world was wrong with 15...Qxp ? It seems very strong & forcing ?" Short gives 15..Qe4+ 16 Kf2..Bd1 17 Qf4..Qc2+ 18 Qd2..Qa4
19 Bd3 as hopeless for black.
McDonald says 17 Kd4 may have been winning (for example 17..Rd8+ 18 Qd8+!)but that it was unnecessarily risky.
|Sep-22-11|| ||katar: The first 10 moves of this game are recited in the French movie Joueuse ("Queen to Play").|
|Sep-22-11|| ||FSR: Yes, at the end when the characters are playing blindfold chess. I came here and looked this game up after seeing the movie.|
|Sep-22-11|| ||uscfratingmybyear: <FSR> Yes, saw the movie last night and found the game this morning.|
|Dec-16-11|| ||Penguincw: Black did everything just to check the white king.|
|Dec-16-11|| ||TheBish: What does "7" mean for the site? It would be nice if they put the actual location or tournament.|
|Dec-17-11|| ||King Death: <TheBish> See this link (game 33): Game Collection: Madrid 1997.|
|Jan-02-12|| ||Penguincw: < TheBish: What does "7" mean for the site? It would be nice if they put the actual location or tournament. >|
I believe that's the round of the tournament. Also, see this collection: Game Collection: Madrid 1997. According to that, it's in Madrid, Spain.
|Feb-13-16|| ||Christoforus Polacco: plang <McDonald says 17 Kd4 may have been winning (for example 17..Rd8+ 18 Qd8+!)but that it was unnecessarily risky.> It's very good transaction for white.|
