|Aug-26-16|| ||daveinsatiable: How has this not been GOTD?
Just for want of a pun? (cf. Newzild)
|Mar-12-17|| ||ColeTrane: La unica cosa que sugiero acerca de los chistes en este sitio sería que de vez en cuando hay que usar algunas bromas de otros lenguajes-específicamente pa el sr Najdorf. Pero aparte de eso, que sigue- es algo que me divierta y por eso agradezco al cg.c... Cachay po huevon|
|Mar-12-17|| ||offramp: Today's GoTD title is based on a Neil Young song. I don't know if Neil Young still sings the song. |
He would have to alter the words a bit because there aren't many men older than Neil Young.
|Mar-12-17|| ||nalinw: Given the background to the game and the game itself this has to be one of the all time great game/pun combinations.|
|Mar-12-17|| ||Robyn Hode: <offramp> There may not be many men older than Neil Young, but there are an inexhaustible amount of men more talented than you, especially Neil Young.|
|Mar-12-17|| ||HeMateMe: terrific pun and game!|
|Mar-12-17|| ||scormus: <devere 26 Re7!!> that looks like an engine move, not very deep but certainly hard to see OTB.|
Very instructive game, Black's strategy looks rather naive with today's knowledge. But at the time? With White in control of the open d- file 16 ... f4 seems dubious anyway
|Mar-12-17|| ||OhioChessFan: <devere: Bernstein missed the astounding 26.Re7!! Bxe7 27.Qg6!! Rf6 28.Rh4!! >|
How about clearing the long diagonal by <26. Rd5> It might be even more devastating than Re7. Black just has nothing. A couple lines end up with the Re7/Qg6 anyway.

|Mar-12-17|| ||clement41: Flabbergasting game by old Bernstein!
So fun to watch!
|Mar-12-17|| ||offramp: The important thing is, <Robyn Hode>, if that is your real name, that there are more people older than me in the world than there are people more talented than Neil Young. Ha ha!|
|Mar-12-17|| ||morfishine: <scormus> I also noticed <26.Re7> as pointed out by <devere> but went wrong with 26...Bxe7 <27.dxe7> overlooking the winning 27.Qg6|
Scintillating game all around; but when you take your lessons from Capablanca, this is what results :)
|Mar-12-17|| ||ChessHigherCat: Didn't Bernstein miss 26. Qg6 threatening Qh6#?|
|Mar-12-17|| ||ChessHigherCat: If 26. Qg6 there are very few defensive lines. 26...Ne8 27. Qh6+ Qh7 28. Qxf8+ Qg8 29. Gxg8# If 26...Nf5 then Re7 as an interference move.|
|Mar-12-17|| ||scormus: <morfishine> I thought what made 26 Re7 hard to find was that only after the interim moves does the diagonal get cleared. If you saw that you were doing well|
For a moment I wondered about immediately 26 Qg6, but B has ... Qf5 and the attack stalls
|Mar-12-17|| ||ChessHigherCat: <Scormus For a moment I wondered about immediately 26 Qg6, but B has ... Qf5 and the attack stalls>|
No, because...Qf5 doesn't prevent Qh6#
|Mar-12-17|| ||JohnBoy: <ChessHigherCat> 26.Qg6 Qf5 27.Qh6+ Qh7|
|Mar-12-17|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: I would have chosen the pun "Prize Goeth Before the Fall." Still, any GOTD title based upon a Neil Young works well enough for me.|
|Mar-12-17|| ||ChessHigherCat: <JohnBoy: <ChessHigherCat> 26.Qg6 Qf5 27.Qh6+ Qh7>
Damn that's right. I was just thinking of the defense Nf5 and I had decided that Qf5 didn't work for some (obviously misguided) reason.|
|Mar-13-17|| ||devere: <OhioChessFan: How about clearing the long diagonal by <26. Rd5>> Yes that certainly wins also; it's just a bit more prosaic than 26.Re7.|
Is this the most brilliant game ever played by a 70+ year old chess player? Or has Viktor Korchnoi or Vasily Smyslov played one that tops it?
|Mar-13-17|| ||OhioChessFan: I'll have to give some thought to that. Here's a Bill Wall article that addresses older players:|
|Mar-13-17|| ||OhioChessFan: Here's one by Dake at 78 that is really nice:
K Shirazi vs Dake, 1988
I think that would be a great collection. I might work on it. Best games by players over 70.
|Mar-13-17|| ||Fusilli: Najdorf at 73:
M J Tempone vs Najdorf, 1983
At Buenos Aires (Clarin) (1980) Najdorf (at 70) beat Timman, Browne, and Kavalek, and overall he scored +3 -2 =8.
|Apr-08-17|| ||wwall: A link on my article of older players. I need to update it. It's getting old.|
|Sep-22-18|| ||mikealando: This won the tournament's brilliancy prize|
|Oct-03-18|| ||SkySports: As someone talked about it, I've created a collection of games won by old (70+) GMs versus much younger strong players (this game is obviously included).|
Game Collection: Old men (and women) vs. time
