|Nov-19-02|| ||KeedLabayne: What is the best opening repertoire if im going to use 1.c4 ...2.Nf3. Can i transpose it to Reti's opening 1.Nf3? |
|Nov-19-02|| ||Sneaky: Sure, I had always learned that the Reti System usually starts with 1.Nf3. |
|Nov-20-02|| ||AgentRgent: The Reti system usually starts with 1.Nf3, but often you can transpose 1.c4 into it. However, I would advise against it, because 1.c4 pretty much eliminates 1...d5 and the Reti Gambit (1. Nf3 d5 2.c4) The Reti Gambit is a tempting but tasteless treat for black if accepted, and if declined offers white significant developmental and positional pluses. |
|Nov-20-02|| ||drukenknight: okay maybe there are still some problems but at least suggest one more move.|
Going back earlier in the game, black seems to play a little too deliberately. What about 22...Bxb2 23 Kxb2 Qb5+ 24 Kc1 Re2 trying to bust up the position?
|Jan-20-04|| ||slapwa: Isn't black winning after 32. ..., Qc2? E.g. 33. Rb1, Re1. |
|Jan-20-04|| ||matrexius: Yes, Qc2 wins for Black. I suppose both sides overlooked that simple move. |
|Jan-20-04|| ||mjk: <Slapwa>, will 32...♕c2 33.♕xf7+ ♔h8 34.♖7d2 save White? |
|Jan-20-04|| ||Loschinski: <chessgames.com> "Where a white man is sacrificed on the critical square the interference, instead of being a Grimshaw, is called a NOWOTNY INTERFERENCE, after Anton Nowotny (1829-1871)..." pp. 54-55, The Enjoyment of Chess Problems, Kenneth S. Howard.
Just to clear matters... I should know, because I'm a chess problem composer. My site's address: http://home.versanet.de/~zirkwitz/i... |
|Jan-20-04|| ||chessgames.com: Thank you for that correction. |
|Jan-20-04|| ||slapwa: mjk: <Slapwa>, will 32...Qc2 33.Qxf7+ Rh8 34.R7d2 save White? |
No: 34. ..., Qxd2.
|Jan-20-04|| ||kevin86: This is a great example of artful chess problem tactics in a "real" game. The Grimshaw/Nowotny theme is surely artful. Also, it shows how chess itself is an artful version of war. Maybe Fischer had it right after all. |
|Jan-20-04|| ||panigma: All I know is it's a pretty damn cool move. |
|Jan-20-04|| ||Halfpricemidge: This immediatly reminded me of the Novotny interference problem-more so than Grimshaw's mate in five. Hey Kevin86, what did you mean by "Fischer had it right after all"? What did he have to say about this? |
|Jan-20-04|| ||Phoenix: <panigma: All I know is it's a pretty damn cool move. > |
|Jul-16-04|| ||mjk: Is this more than just a Novotny since 34.♗e5 also stops the mate 34..♗xb2+ 35.♔b1 ♕c2# ? |
|Jul-16-04|| ||vonKrolock: in the artistic Chess realm, a Nowotny key that had other tactical purposes than just the mutual interfrence woul be simply considered impure and therefore inferior (against the principle of "Zweckreinheit" (purity of goal - apr. transl.) this is not a paranoid theory - if a key had other purposes than introduce the thematical content, the solver could not catch the real intention of the composer, so the idea would result obscured (an exception is when another them content is combined, but this is another chapter -a mating threat is prosaic...) |
|Jul-16-04|| ||kevin86: Not a direct quote-but from (<Searching For Bobby Fischer>):chess was not a science or just a game-it was an art form--watch the film;it is a really good one!! |
|Aug-17-05|| ||olav dalkeith: would 34...Qa2+ 35.Kxa2 Rxb2+ not have saved the day for black? Black's rook and bishop could then chase the white king from a1 to a4 and back or am I missing something?|
|Aug-17-05|| ||olav dalkeith: oops, noticed he could get king to a1 and when black rook goes to b3 or b4 with bishop giving check, white just nicks the black bishop. Was too nice to be true.|
|Sep-09-05|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: <drukenknight: what about 34...Qxd7 35 Qxd7 R(8)xe5 36 bxc3 Rxh5 can black save that?>|
Better a late response than never. :) Your suggestion is nice, except for 36...Rxh5, because if 36...Rxh5, then 37.Qf7! Ree5 38.Rd8+ Kh7 39.Qg8+ Kg6 40.Rd6+ Kf5 41.Qf7+ Kg4 42.Rg6+ which I am sure leads to mate eventually.
Instead of <36..Rxh5>, 36...Rxf2 might be a better idea, although I think White still has an advantage.
|Feb-14-12|| ||arartekosa: What happens after 34... Qxa2+ 35. Kxa2 Rxb2 36. Ka1 (or, Ka3 with perpetual) Rxf2+ 37. Kb1 Rxf7 38. Bxc3 ? Black has three connected passed pawns for the bishop, shouldn┤t he at least be able to draw?|
|Feb-14-12|| ||Sastre: 34...Qxa2+ 35.Kxa2 Rxb2+ 36.Ka1 Rxf2+ 37.Bxc3 wins.|
|Jan-14-15|| ||SpiritedReposte: There should be a book of the prettiest moves of all time. |
I've tried to compile a few in a game collection and thought each was prettier than the last. This one may take the cake though. Just a counter-haymaker of a move!
|Jun-09-15|| ||pedro99: pretty! Maybe Black should have baled out earlier with a weak d-pawn after 21./..Bxd4 22.Qd4:- cd4: 23. Rb5:- Rad8|
White cannot round up the d-pawn straight away because of the back rank and f3 will allow ..Re2 which is awkward.
|Aug-14-16|| ||dark.horse: Nice double interference pattern!
B-takes, the rook goes.
A rook takes, Qxg7 mate.
