Jan-30-06  MorphyMatt: all I can say is, wha????
Jan-31-06  Dudley: 25. Rc6 threatens mate in one with 26. Qa7 #, but 25....Rxc6 26.Qxc6 is an unstoppable mate with 27.Ra8#, since the king is confined to one square.
Feb-02-06  MorphyMatt: amazing. Thanks.
Apr-05-06  stanleys: Briliant game with many tactical shots
11.Nd5! 14.Bh6! 15.Bb5!! 18.Bg7! 20.Rd6!

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: I imagine that the player with the white pieces was having a very enjoyable time during the course of this game. The player with the black pieces was probably experiencing less enjoyment.

  Phony Benoni: A powerful bludgeoning, even by Kupreichik's standards. What a match it would have been between him and Nezhmetdinov! Overall, I think Kupreichik at his peak was a bit better, even given his streakiness. However, Viktor would have played the type of game that would have stimulated Nezh to his greatest heights rather than bore him into mediocrity.

  Alex Schindler: wow, just incredible. I feel like exclamming every single move. It's like Kupreichik made a bet before the game "wanna see me win a game with at least one piece en prise every move from midgame to mate?"
Sep-08-15  cunctatorg: A game of fun and torture!!...

Both players, GM Viktor Kupreichik and Brazilian GM Jaime Sunye Neto were really strong and convincing Grandmasters; probably Sunye Neto was in a cheerful and naughty disposition that afternoon ... and even that very evening!!...

  Alex Schindler: Seriously what should black have done after 11Nd5? The game was just a vicious onslaught from there...

While White's play gives the appearance of randomly dropping pieces onto squares where they may be captured, poor Sunye derived no pleasure that day.

Kupreichik really is a fantastic player.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Even if I had played the Sicilian, would have chosen something else vs. Kupreichik. One little surprise; 11.Nd5 first appears in the database in 1958! 12.Bc4 left theory behind, in the dust, one might say.
Apr-21-17  FairyPromotion: One of my favorite Kupreichik games. Head-spinning tactics.
Apr-21-17  Gottschalk: Viktor has aged and never ceased to be a "Brazilian killer". In the game below he performs a fancy queen sacrifice against Herman Claudius. https://68.169.60.53/public/game.js...

Two years later, Viktor repeated the variant of his own and won again. This time without the Queen's sacrifice. https://68.169.60.53/public/game.js...

Apr-21-17  morfishine: Wow, I think he managed to put every piece en prise

*****

Apr-21-17  Timi: This game is like the famous Messi's and Maradona's goal where they dribbled everybody
Apr-21-17  Retireborn: Kupreichik's notes in Informator indicate that Black should have played 13...Bb8 or 13...Be5 14.f4 Bb8 instead of 13...Bc5(?)

After 13...Bb8 the tactic 14.Bh6 doesn't work because after 14...Nxd5 15.exd5 Qc7! Black has an unpleasant counter-threat, which is not obviated by 16.d6 Qc6.

In the game line 14...Nxd5 is useless of course.

Apr-21-17  TheTamale: Great GOTD. Nice, imaginative play by Kupreichik.
Apr-21-17  sachman19: ruthless
Apr-21-17  thegoodanarchist: Now THIS is a game of the day! Could easily be game of the week.
Apr-21-17  morfishine: BTW: there were many places where Black could've improved
