|Jun-05-05|| ||WMD: 23...Rxa4 is a one way to relieve the pressure.|
|Jun-05-05|| ||Sneaky: I will pin you in a boat, I will pin you with a goat. On a train or in the rain. In a house, or with a mouse. I will pin you here and there, I will pin you everywhere.|
|Jun-05-05|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: It is such a relief to see a pun that is not connected to some american science-fiction-movie (which are to average european person like me familiar as all Kurguzistans in Central Asia to average american person), some third graded american other movie or something else.|
"Sam I am" is the nick of Sam Cassell of Minnessota Timbervolwes in NBA. Of course i allow the possibility that "Sam I am" is a title of some third grade american movie and that most of people here haven't even considered Cassell as a connection to the pun... :)
|Jun-05-05|| ||azaris: <Autoreparaturwerkbau> I think it comes from Dr.Seuss, who if possible is even less familiar to us Europeans.|
|Jun-05-05|| ||OhioChessFan: Pins, pins, everywhere are pins. Blocking up the calvary, stopping my defense. Don't move, can't move, man can't you see them pins?|
|Jun-05-05|| ||paulgrow: I should point out, however, that in Hebrew Samuel means "the name of God." Which is I Am that I Am, at least according to the burning bush in Exodus. I wonder if Dr. Suess knew that when he first wrote Sam I Am.|
|Jun-05-05|| ||patzer2: <ughaibu> After 21. f4?!
Ke7 22. e4 (22. Qxg7 Nf6 23. Qg3 Bxd5 ) 22... Nf6 23. Qf3 Rhd8 24. Be3 Bc5 , Black has a clear and strong advantage.|
|Jun-05-05|| ||ughaibu: Why 23.Qf3? what's wrong with Qh4?|
|Jun-05-05|| ||chancho: 27...Qxc6 threatening Bxh2+ winning the Queen does not work due to 28 Bb4.|
|Jun-05-05|| ||KampongBoy: Sam Cassell?? Pretty strong assumption to associate him with this site's game of the day. Has anybody outside of the U.S. heard of him?|
|Jun-05-05|| ||ajile: Black has 6 of his first 8 moves as pawn moves. Too much time wasted when he should have been developing and getting his king to safety. 8..C5 was the fatal mistake which allowed White to play D5 at his convenience. After Black continues to delay castling White plays 12.D5! forcing open lines.|
|Jun-05-05|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: This is an impressive game! 15.♘xb5 and 30.♗b4 are both beautiful moves.|
|Jun-05-05|| ||patzer2: <ughaibu> In the line under discussion, after 23. Qh4!? Kf8! 24.
Bc2 Re8! 25. e5 Bc5+ 26. Kh1 Nxd5 27. Qg3 Nb4 28. Bf5 g6! 29. Bb1 Kg7 it looks decisive for Black.|
|Jun-05-05|| ||ThomYorke: If the pun is cause of the movie "I am Sam", then everyone who watched the movie realized that they´re calling Reshevsky retarded.|
|Jun-06-05|| ||iron maiden: No, it's from Seuss's classic "Green Eggs and Ham."|
|Jun-06-05|| ||RookFile: Big league win by Reshevsky.
|Jun-06-05|| ||kevin86: IMHO-black overextended his q-side pawns and failed to remove the king from the center;it took a humble sac to blow this one wide open.|
|Jun-06-05|| ||RookFile: Well, you're right, of course. But,
would you or I have found Nxb5? I
don't know. It seems like a deep
move to me.
|Jun-07-05|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: <KampongBoy> Well, who hasn't heard about The Alien? As long as he was healthy, the Wolves were the contenders for the throne, instead they even missed the playoffs...|
|May-09-06|| ||plang: Does anyone know what game of the match this is?|
|May-09-06|| ||Resignation Trap: <plang> This was game 16 of their 18-game match. Hans Kmoch annotated all of them in the May 1952-July 1952 issues of <<Chess Review>>. All of the games are now a part of my new collection: Game Collection: Match for the Championship of the Free World . The games are listed in chronological order with the same subtitles given by Kmoch in <<Chess Review>>.|
|May-10-06|| ||plang: Thanks a lot for the information. This site continues to amaze me for being a wealth of information. By the way what did Reshevsky and Najdorf eat for breakfast before the game?|
|May-11-06|| ||plang: Was there 2nd match also referred to as Match for the Championship of the Free World?|
|Aug-09-07|| ||sanyas: I would have liked to see the finish 30...♔g7 31.♗xd6 ♖d8 32.♖xb8 ♖xd6 33.♕g8+ ♔h6 34.♕h8+ ♔g5 35.♖b5+
♔h4 36.h3 f5 37.♔h2 ♖d2 38.♖xf5 ♕c7+ 39.♖e5 ♖xf2 40.♕f6+ 1-0 |
Or 36...♕c7 37.♖d5 ♖xd5 38.♕xf6+ g5 39.g3+ ♔xh3 40.♕e6+ g4 41.♕xd5 ♕xg3+ 42.fxg3 ♔xg3 43.♕h1 c3 44.bxc3 h4 45.♕g2# 1-0
In any case, I believe 22...♔e7 refutes the combination.
|Aug-27-09|| ||tentsewang: Oh i see why Najdorf resigned. Its because 30.Bb4 Bxb4 31. Rxb8+ Kg7 32.Rb7 which pins the queen to the king and the transformation of a pawn, later.|
