Aug-02-02  dreamboy: I comment that I can't play the chess? why?
Mar-10-03  ughaibu: Dreamboy: are you pointing out that this game is full of perplexing moves and incomprehensible strategies? Whatever, it's a fascinating game for sure.

  Sneaky: I think dreamboy came here to play live chess and is confused why he can't move the pieces. He needs to read Help and find out what this site is really about.
Mar-10-03  ughaibu: Sneaky: You may well be correct, I dont remember seeing any other posts by Dreamboy so maybe he found a place to play.
Mar-21-04  GufeldStudent: I once found a small volume of Kupriechik's games wih annotations, but I have not been able to find it since (at the time I didn't have the cash on me to buy it and when I went back it was gone). Where can I find good annotations of this game?
Feb-15-05  WTHarvey: Fwiw, 25.Qxa5 is a mate in 7, while 25.Rxa5 is a mate in 9.
Feb-15-05  Gowe: Great wtharvey, excellent post, but, where is the mate in 7 and where is the mate in 9. If you can put those mates, it would be great i think, because write that is like nothing.
Feb-20-05  Saruman: <Gowe> But also remember that by illuminating that fact its easy for anyone to just plug it into Fritz! BTW can someone do this for us? :-)
Feb-20-05  rookending: <Saruman> I can't find a mate in 9 but Fritz finds several 7-movers, e.g. 25.Qxa5 Qh1+ 26.Ke2 Re8+ 27.Kd3 Qb1+ 28.Rxb1 Re3+ 29.fxe3 Kb8 30. Qa7+ Kc8 31.Qa8#

Or 25.Rxa5 Kb8 26.Bxd7 Qh1+ 27.Ke2 Qe1+ 28.Kxe1 Re8+ 29.Kd2 Re2+ 30.Kxe2 d4 31.Qf8#

Or the game continuation: 25.Rxa5 Qh1+ 26.Ke2 Re8+ 27.Qe7 Rexe7+ 28.fxe7 Qe1+ 29.Kxe1 Kb8 30.e8=Q+ Rd8 31.Qxd8#

Jul-27-05  aw1988: Qe7 is a nice kick in the teeth.
Jul-27-05  Shokwave: I love that last move...very nice game by white.
Oct-29-05  Whitehat1963: Awesome! I've never looked at Kup's games, but this remind's me of Tal.
Oct-29-05  ughaibu: Bob Wade has a variation! Good on 'im, how many Brits can say that.
Feb-23-06  Lawrnce: I have been playing the Wade variation
and now having second thoughts. Maybe
once in a while. Very good game.
Sep-12-12  sushijunkie: I LOVE seeing the French getting shredded, so quickly and so brutally.

  Alex Schindler: Haha that is one badass finisher. Very enjoyable game. Relatively simple, but great. The use of open diagonals really took no time to justify the rook sac
Jun-04-17  Whitehat1963: Such an awesome ending!
