|Sep-20-04|| ||clocked: <PinkPanther> What makes it absurd? |
|Sep-22-04|| ||PinkPanther: Look at the position after Moro's 24th move, not to mention all the mating nets that crop up afterwards. |
|Nov-06-04|| ||Bluelapis: Moro's games are very interesting and exciting. So, I like his playing style. |
|Nov-26-04|| ||mjk: Hear GM Christiansen's analysis at http://video.chess.fm/christiansen/... |
|Jan-23-05|| ||csmath: This is not an absurd game, it is actually one of all time greatest attack games I've seen. This is Morozevich at his best, against one of the best defenders (and attackers) in the field, Veselin Topalov.|
By the way this Bb5 is an excellent idea even against Sveshnikov, in case of lower rated players, once you do that and even if you do Bxc6, it is a real fun to watch how some folks start to sweat in the position where all of a sudden black is passive.
|Feb-12-05|| ||semesterian: Black's 11...♘b6 is a most unnatural move and the merits of the position called for 11...♘e5 followed by ...♘c6. He admitted his folly on the seventeenth move. Black loses one last shot with 24...♗xf4 and gets too greedy for his own good. Some annotators joke that because Morozevich can surprise you as early as the second move, players like Sokolov who like "conventional openings" get placed "in Zugzwang" on the second move because anything they do will invite some "absurd" opening from the accomplished (if slightly mercurial given his recent Corus 2005 result) master. |
|Feb-08-06|| ||XMarxT3hSpot: Bump!
I think it's mate in 18(!) after Black's 25th move
Such a great game!
|Jun-30-08|| ||ToTheDeath: Incredible onslaught by Morozevich. It's hard to believe but Black is completely busted after 25...Rxc4?.|
25... hxg6 26. Nxg6 Rxc4 27. Nxf8 Qxf8 28. g6 Bf6 29. gxf7+ Kxf7 30. Qh5+ is a draw.
After 27.g6 the alternatives also lose:
I). 27... Nd4 28. Ngh5 Nbc2 29. g7+ Kxh7 30. Qh4 Ne2+ 31. Kh1 Rh8 32. Ng3+ Kxg7 33. Ne6+ fxe6 34. Qg5+ Kh7 35. Rf7+ Bg7 36. Qxg7
II.) 27... e6 28. gxf7 Bxf4 29. Bxf4 Rxf7 30. Be5+ dxe5 31. Rxf7
The faster mate was 30. Ng6+ Kxh7 31. Qh5+ Kg8 32. Nh6+ Bxh6 33.Rxf7 Bxe3+ 34. Kh1 Kxf7 35. Ne5+ Kf6 36. Qf5+ Kg7 37. Qg6+ and mates, a beautiful queen and knight finish against a slew of misplaced Black pieces.
