  kevin86: Boy,these Saturday games of the day get so little comment.I think Mr. Jordan retired too early. lol

Some people don't think that a long fight for a draw is worth it,black is lost-but i think a battle is possible.

Nov-13-04  azaris: The odds are pretty low for anything surprising to happen, the white king is too safe, the black knight is quite trapped and once the queens come off it's curtains.
Nov-13-04  mahmoudkubba: there is something sounds to be missing in this game .. something I could not understand. Also the announcing of CROSSING JORDAN is it the folkland war or the passage to Israil (the occupied land I mean) or the passage to Iraq or where to?? . Thats mean two things for me r not understandable!
Nov-13-04  mahmoudkubba: Also I am not familar that much with the Robatsch as an opening or as a chess way to fight. can someone tell me name of sites or books for Robatsch???????
Nov-13-04  Knight13: The passed pawn on the d6 square is the major part of the resigned reason, I guess.
Nov-13-04  Eatman: Seemed black had some decent counterplay till d5 pawn got to d6. After that white bishop got some room to play and it was all over.
May-28-17  newzild: <mahmoudkubba> Your questions can be answered by searching on the internet.

"Crossing Jordan" is an American TV show, according to Google. To "cross" someone is to deceive them or upset them, which is the basis of the pun here.

"Pirc alert" by Alburt and Chernin and "Tigers Modern" by Persson are recommended in a discussion on

May-28-17  The Kings Domain: Kupreichik sure was a fine attacking player. R.I.P.
May-28-17  belgradegambit: Repeat pun J Ivanov vs I Cheparinov, 2004
May-28-17  Ironmanth: A great game; White just kept chipping away to get positional advantage. RIP GM Victor Kupreichik.

And maybe some more have been written the 13 years since he asked the question! ;-)

Oh, didn't see that.

I was going to suggest John Nunn's "Complete Pirc" but thought it was too old. Maybe it wasn't back then?
