Premium Chessgames Member
  patzer2: White's 17. Nxf7!? appears to be a genuine demolition of pawn structure sacrifice, leading to a sharp but unclear position with practical winning chances for White.
Oct-07-05  schnarre: <patzer2> It's a thematic approach!

  Richard Taylor: This should be -

But also after 17 c:d5 f:e5 18 d:e6 White threatens mate in 1 - so 18.... Qc7 19. Re5!! Bg7 20. e:f7+ Kxf7 21 Qd5+ Kg6 21. Re6+! wins and 21. ..Kf8 22. Rf5+ Bf6 (Ke8 23 Re1+ wins) 23. R:f6+ Kg7 24. Qg5# or 23. ...Ke7 or (e8 also loses 24. Qe6+ and wins -

But I overlooked 20... Kf8

  Richard Taylor: Nxf7 is of course the logical attackimg method - the thematic demolition of the pawns around the Black King - starting with the base stone on f7
Sep-20-09  birthtimes: Nice example of Spielmann's preventive castling sacrifice where preconditions include the opportunity for utilization by the attacker of open center files, along with opposing forces which are partly undeveloped and scattered (now look at the game again at the 15th move).

  jessicafischerqueen: <jaime gallegos: Nezhmetdinov was the USRR-championship several times>

No, he was the RSFSR Champion five times. He never won the USSR Championship.

USSR Championships allowed players from anywhere in the Soviet Union- RSFSR Champions included only players from the "Russian Federations" in the Soviet Union- a much smaller pool.

Sep-06-11  Crocomule: Not that it matters... but wasn't this Yaroslavl '51?

  plang: The move that I had the most trouble with in this game was 5 Ne2 - I would never have considered it. The sacrifice on f7 is thematic and is especially strong after 15 c4!.
Sep-25-11  Shams: <plang> For a while I was in the habit of declining Alekhine's Defense, which is amusing because somewhere on these pages is a record of a younger version of myself talking absolute rot about the opening. Anyway, after 1.e4 Nf6 2.Nc3 d5 3.e5 Ne4:

White's 4.Ne2! is strong. I'm surprised how many Class players miss this move, which is after all only the fourth move of a game in a very plausible line.

I can outbid that with the oldest instance of the Morra gambit in our database:

Kieseritzky vs C W Vitzthum von Eckstaedt, 1846

Nov-07-17  goodevans: Really nice game. <15.c4!> was particularly strong but <16.cxd5!> would have been even stronger than the line played.

On the other hand <16.Bxf6> did lead to a very interesting Sunday puzzle a dozen years ago so we're glad he played it!

  4tmac: < 17 PxP!! & 18 PxP!! > ....... 17.cxd5 fxe5 18.dxe6 fxe6 (18..Be7 19.Qd7+ Kf8 20.Qxb7 Qd8 21.Qf3 Qe8 22.exf7) 19.Qh5+ Ke7 20.Rxe5 Good Game

  morfishine: Another illogical and ineffective game-title. If a chess player were to follow this advice, he would never play like Super-Nez, never create any brilliancies, and most likely, never win a game, ever.

We can safely flush this one down the toilet of bad ideas

  thegoodanarchist: 17. Nxf7 is definitely a Rash move!
Nov-07-17  Boomie: ->

Super-Nezh was Tal's muse.

Tal said the happiest day of his life was when he lost to Rashid.

Nezhmetdinov vs Tal, 1961

Nov-08-17  Moszkowski012273: Naaaaa Nxf7 is not correct.
Nov-10-17  Saniyat24: The total number of letters of these two players= 29+24=53...!
Nov-10-17  Saniyat24: What a beautiful three piece combination when Nezhmetdinov plays 9.Bb5...!
