|Apr-20-05|| ||nasmichael: Have you ever tried, as a child, to outrun your father? This game has that same feeling, of a small child challenging his father to a footrace, and the father, turning, laughing, and running backwards, beats the child--who quits. |
|Apr-17-06|| ||whatthefat: A fine series of tactics from Nezhmetdinov. Playing through the game, the most surprising feature for me was that he managed to resist ever sacrificing on d5!|
|Jul-12-09|| ||ketchuplover: Why not 7...g3 or Bxg5?|
|Nov-12-09|| ||birthtimes: Interesting that White is 3-0 after getting to 7.Qh5!|
|Nov-12-09|| ||birthtimes: Nezh understood the concept of co-ordinating one's pieces. For example, 10.Qg4 is in co-ordination with White's knight on c3 which threatens to take on d5 since Black's c8 bishop is unprotected. And 12.Nh3 followed by 14.Nf4 co-ordinates well with the c3 knight and the e3 queen in putting pressure on d5 and e6, and with the e2 bishop in putting pressure on h6.|
18. Bf3 puts co-ordinates well with the two knights by putting additional pressure on d5, and 19.Qe2 co-ordinates well with bishop and knight to increase the pressure on h5. 20. Rhe1 co-ordinates well with queen and knight to put further pressure on e6, and he also could have won two different times with a knight sac, namely 20.Ncxd5 or 23.Ncxe6!!!
|Mar-31-12|| ||iamdeafzed: What I find most hilarious about this game is how Super Nezh sacrificed two knights to get at the black king, then won black's queen after losing a rook, then did a rook "sacrifice" designed to win two minor pieces and then...gives back the queen. Only to trap black's extra knight, leaving Nezh with a won rook and minor piece ending.|
Brilliant play by Nezh.
|Mar-31-12|| ||rilkefan: I was surprised by 29.Rxd8 instead of simply Rxf8+. After ...Rhxf8 30.Qe2 white has a mating attack with Q+B+pawns and black is dropping h5 and more.|
I guess there's something to be said for simplifying to an obviously won endgame though, and capturing the knight is a lot more elegant than the above.
|Apr-03-12|| ||iamdeafzed: @ rilkefan
I don't really see where white's "mating attack" (as you put it) would proceed after your suggested line. Did you have something else in mind after Qe2?
Given what I see in the position right now, I think I would have preferred Nezh's way...seems to leave black's remaining pieces more uncoordinated.
|Apr-04-12|| ||rilkefan: Well, I don't know if there's a forced mate in n, but black has to be careful to hang onto his king and should drop his pawns while doing so. Consider 30... Nc6 31. Bxh5+ Kg7 32. Qg4+ Kh8 33. Bg6 f5 34. Qh5+ Kg7 35. Bxf5 Rf6 36. Qh7+ Kf8 37. g4 Rdd6 38.Qxc7.|
