|May-02-05|| ||azaris: Leko hammers through in the same unfortunate line that Kasparov fell into against Deep Blue. The discovered check after 22...Bxd7 23. exf6+ will lead to mate, or if 22...Nxd7 then 23. Qd6+ Kd8 24. Qxf8+ Kc7 25. Qd6+ Kd8 26. e6 and mate soon.|
In a way Leko's style if pure chess logic. When his opponent makes a mistake like here, he will press on relentlessly to win. If the position is even with little chances for either side, he will quickly agree to a draw rather than play on hoping for some kind of mistake or trying to confuse his opponent with tricks. If there is an endgame where only he has chances to win, he will prosecute it mercilessly for a hundred moves.
|Apr-18-06|| ||ChessDude33: What is the idea behind 8. Nxe6?
I've seen some other games with it, what does white get in return for the knight?
|Dec-31-07|| ||Mostolesdude: White usually gets a bg6+ which causes problems on blacks'defense. From that point on, white is 1 move ahead of black and it usually maintains the initiative, has more freedom of movement, and exercises a relentless attack on a black king that will be very unconfortable in the middle of the board (delaying the development of his own pieces). I personally enjoyed the game: Deep Blue vs Kasparov, 1997 The computer was able to get plenty of compensation for the knight sacrifice on e6...|
|Dec-11-09|| ||arifattar: This was perhaps the most ridiculous of the clues so far.|
|Dec-11-09|| ||wordfunph: opppssss...i did guess peter leko as PL but David Baramidze as DB huh!|
|Dec-11-09|| ||TheBish: <wordfunph>, don't feel too bad... I did the same thing! I had moved on to David Bronstein as DB, waste of time there. That was after I considered Deep Blue, but just didn't quite put it together. I would have had a decent shot by just clicking on all the Leko games!|
I did crack the code in the other clue (An angel gets its wings) but didn't know what to do with that.
|Jun-04-12|| ||ahmadov: exf6 is as equally good as the final move, according to Guess the Move.|
|Jul-30-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Guess-the-Move Final Score:
Leko vs G Bakhtadze, 1995.
YOU ARE PLAYING THE ROLE OF LEKO.
Your score: 27 (par = 27)
