|Oct-28-04|| ||ezumpf: <pittpanther>Thanks, you are right. But why would white do that? That ruins my line! lol! |
|Oct-28-04|| ||TonyOliva: When I looked at this puzzle, I began with 35. ... Rd3 prior to ...Qh5 (36. QxR Nf2+ wins the queen, and 36. Qb4 Qh5 makes the ending a little cleaner... Any thoughts on this approach? |
|Oct-28-04|| ||Gypsy: < TonyOliva> Your 35...Rd3 (as well as 35...Rd2) is an attractive move. But after 35...Rd3 36.Rxe4 Rxd4 37.Rxd4, Black still has to work hard to get the point. (And after 35...Rd2? 36.Qa4 Qh5(?) 37.Qe5+ Black has to work harder yet.) |
|Oct-28-04|| ||Gypsy: Addendum to may previous post: 35...Rd3 36.Rxe4 fxe4 (instead of the 36...Rxd4) should win convincingly. |

|Oct-30-04|| ||patzer2: I enjoyed the role the "pin" tactic played in this combination, such as the amusing final position or the fun possibility 36. Kh2?? Qxh3#. |
While 35...Rxh3+! may win, the simpler 35...Qh5!! leaves White nothing better than a spite check and a desperate grab of material before suffering a quick mate.
|Mar-03-07|| ||jmrulez2004: White's mistake is 31..Nxc4..goodness....its like Najdorf can see and anticipate the oopponents move...he really is a frightening opponent.|
|Dec-15-07|| ||enoughsaid05: 16 d4 Nf6!
White's pawn structure was weakened, the weak points mainly e3 and c3 (after 17)
17 c3 b5!
Attacking white's pawn structure.
After exchanging at the queenside, white's pawn structure is seriously compromised after losing his dark square bishop
|Dec-04-08|| ||mindmaster: What this really shows is a better organized position involving minor pieces is far better than an unorganized position involving major pieces.....|
|Dec-04-08|| ||jovack: black just had better control with a direct attack on the king possible after a piece sac|
white had good tactics here, but everything fell apart since he didnt have enough defense on his king.
|Dec-04-08|| ||amateur05: After looking at Larsen's recent disastrous performance in Argentina I get the impression that he's an annoyingly weak player who sometimes (very rarely) likes to surprise others and himself. How did he become a GM anyway?|
|Dec-04-08|| ||sagahelten: In the sixties Larsen was one of the top western GMs (with Fischer), one of the only who could threaten the Russian supremacy in chess. Now he is an old man, and he should have stopped playing some time ago. When his dream about becoming a World Champion was shattered by Fischer, he seemed to become somewhat less ambitious. But he was a great tournament in the 50's, 60's and 70's. Check out "Bent Larsens Best Games of Chess" (Hardinge Simpole Chess Classics) [http://www.amazon.com/Larsens-Games... to get a more just picture of the Danish GM!|
|Dec-04-08|| ||Confuse: <Amateur05> Thats not very nice at all. Bent Larsen has lost to some very famous players : )|
|Dec-04-08|| ||PaulLovric: hmmm.... by miss you can hit|
|Dec-04-08|| ||Morten: Larsen seems to have quite liked to tell the story about how Najdorf pronounced Larsen a true gentleman for allowing Najdorf to play it out to a very pretty mate.|
Amateur, I think your dismissal of Larsen is a bit flippant. Larsen was a world class player in his heyday. Did he ever have a real shot at becoming champion? Maybe not, even though his tournament results in the 60'ies could have indicated it.
|Dec-04-08|| ||Pyke: <amateur05> You do know Larsen is 73 years old, don't you?|
So show a little bit more respect. He belonged to the best players in his time.
|Dec-04-08|| ||Nina Myers: <amateur05> sucks!|
|Dec-04-08|| ||withingrace: thats a fantastic mate sequence.|
|Dec-04-08|| ||amateur05: I can't see why I should have respect for someone who DELIBERATELY loses his games. Does he have enough respect for his opponents? If you don't know what I am talking about just check out his recent games (e.g. Argentina 2008).|
|Dec-04-08|| ||cydmd: Past talks by itself. Although a bit unorthodox player, Larsen was truly one of the great chessplayers of his time. Let's forget the silly things an old man does.|
|Dec-04-08|| ||SuperPatzer77: Miguel Najdorf's brilliant move is 35...Qh5!! that keeps the White King at bay - that's a real killer. It is impossible for White to defend against the mating threats. |
|Dec-04-08|| ||chopin4525: Beautiful game, as usual when we talk about Najdorf gm or Najdorf sicilian. ^^|
|Dec-04-08|| ||ILikeFruits: bent was not...
|Dec-04-08|| ||Once: Let's not feed the trolls.|
|Dec-04-08|| ||YoungEd: After 12 moves or so, White had what at least superficially looks like an ideal Bird's-type setup. Najdorf showed the weak point of the system with the c4 push, which pretty much bottled up White on the Q-side. Nice game throughout by Black!|
