  Honza Cervenka: Pretty wild game. Black should have won it, but he missed 29...Bxc4+! 30.Kxg2 Rg8+ 31.Bg3 Bd5+ 32.Rxd5 Qxd5+ 33.Kf1 Bxg3 34.hxg3 Rxg3

By the way,, 29...Bf2 is not a check.

Nov-03-03  AdrianP: <Honza> it looks to me like Black could also have bailed out with a draw with 32... Rg1+ followed by perpetual on the 1st and 2nd ranks:-

32 ... Rg1+ 33. Ke2 Rg2+ 34. Kf1 etc.

If 34. Kd3 then e4+ 35. Kc3 Qxc4#
If 34. Ke1 then Qb4+ 35. Rd2 exf4 and B is winning

Nov-03-03  Cyphelium: Another nice variation after 29.- Bxc4+ is 30. Kxg2 Rg8+ 31. Bg3 Bd5+ 32. Kg1 Bxg3 33. Qa7+ Kd7 34. Qxg8 Qb6+ and black wins anyway.
Nov-03-03  Chris00nj: Honzo,

What about 29...Bxc4+ 30. Rxc4 Qxc4+ 31. Kxg2

Another question:
Jak se rekne cesky "Would you like a draw?" a jiny sachy slovu v cestinu? Diky.

  Honza Cervenka: <Chris00nj> If 29...Bxc4+ 30.Rxc4 Qxc4+ 31.Kxg2, then 31...Qe2+ 32.Kh1 Qxd1 33.Qa8+ Kd7 34.Qxh8 Bh4+ 35.Kg2 Qe2+ 36.Kg1 Qf2+ 37.Kh1 Qf1#.

<"Would you like a draw?"> There are many ways how to propose a draw to the opponent in Czech. You can say "Nechtěl byste remízu?" or "Nestačila by Vám remíza?" or "Nabízím remízu." etc.

Little English - Czech chess dictionary:

the chess = šachy (or) šach
the chessboard = šachovnice
the field, square = pole, čtverec
the checkmate = mat
the check = šach
the stalemate = pat
the piece = figura
the King = král (K)
the Queen = dáma (D)
the Rook = věž (V)
the Bishop = střelec (S)
the Knight = jezdec (J)
the Pawn = pěšec, pěšák, pion
the castling = rošáda
the exchange (R/minor piece) = kvalita
the pin = vazba
the fork = vidlička, vidle
the kingside = královské křídlo
the queenside = dámské křídlo
the centre = střed, centrum
the promotion = proměna

Any other word?:-)

(I don't know, if you can see all letters with diacritic marks in right way.)

Nov-04-03  Chris00nj: the Bishop = střelec (S)
the "r" with a hacek shows up as a an o with a slash through it.

A co "I resign"? Dekuju zase.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Honza Cervenka: to resign = vzdát (se)
"I resign (the game)." = "Vzdávám se."; "Vzdávám partii."

For correct view of diacritic marks is necessary to change coding in browser. I see all diacritic marks correct with my Explorer, when the coding is Central European Languages for Windows.

  tpstar: 23. Bg5 is a Discovery on the Qd7, so 23 ... Bd5 to block. Then 24. Qa7 with a mate threat (25. Qa8#) and thus 24 ... Qb5. But after 25. Rac1 I don't see why Black can't play 25 ... fxg5 winning a piece. Black's Qb5 & Bd5 hold the Queenside just fine, and it can't be 26. Rc5?! due to 26 ... Bxc5+. Perhaps Black considered it but thought 25 ... Bxb4 (intending 26 ... Bc5+) was even better. Any suggestions?
Oct-24-07  Cyphelium: <tpstar> 25.- fxg5 looks really bad in view of 26. a4. Then 26.- ♕xb4 (what else?) 27. ♖xd5 already threatens mate and 27.- c6 28. ♖xc6+ doesn't help. 27.- ♗d6 avoids mate, but I think white can win a piece with 28. ♘d3 ♕a3 29. ♘c4. Good knight(s).

  tpstar: <Cyphelium> Nice to see you. =)

Thanks for your analysis. I missed 26. a4 as I was looking for something louder. ;>D You refuted 27 ... Bd6 very nicely (good Knights), but before abandoning 25 ... fxg5, how about 26. a4 Qxb4 27. Rxd5 c5:

with the understanding that Black loses the Queen after 28. Nd3 Qxa5 29. Rdxc5+ Bxc5+ 30. Rxc5+ Qxc5+ 31. Qxc5+ (5 checks!) yet Black has RRPP for the lady. What do you think?

Oct-25-07  Cyphelium: <tpstar> I did not consider that. Clearly 28. ♘d3 in your variation is not so promising, as you show. But what about 28. ♘xb7? 28.- ♕xb7 is of course not good in view of 29. ♖xc5+ ♗xc5+ 30. ♖xc5+ and black loses the queen. White is threatening both 29. ♘xc5 and 29. ♘d3. I don't see what black can do, but I've only given this a brief look.

Nice to be back, BTW. =)
