|Nov-03-08|| ||Sularus: this is what happens when two ultra-sharp attacking players collide.|
|Sep-07-09|| ||kooley782: Tal was an excellent sport after this game, and it has been already stated that when Tal was asked when was the happiest day of his life, he said that it was when he played this game. Love it when two of the greatest attacking players ever meet on the board! Too bad Nezhmetdinov never earned the GM title. He sure deserved it!|
|Sep-15-09|| ||birthtimes: Even though he was one of many who suffered from discrimination, Nezhmetdinov was a GRAND MASTER, and is acknowledged as one by those who know the game...|
|Sep-15-09|| ||MaxxLange: <birthtimes> right!|
there were many great Soviet GMs, perhaps not as gifted as Nezhmetdinov, who are mostly unknown in the West, for various reasons.
Nezhmetdinov died young, in addition to his political troubles, and his play wasn't really known in, say, the USA, until about 10-15 years after that
|Aug-29-10|| ||sevenseaman: The ending is like shutting down of a giant door that forecloses all escape!|
|Nov-08-10|| ||kingscrusher: I have video annotated this game:
|Dec-26-10|| ||laskereshevsky: ........
When the Death and Antonius Block were sitted on the board for the return-match, the medieval knight said:
"...This time, U move the first...."
|Jul-31-11|| ||Mostolesdude: rofl Tal looks like Petrosian when he plays Nezhmetdinov|
|Oct-28-11|| ||DrMAL: <Mostolesdude: rofl Tal looks like Petrosian when he plays Nezhmetdinov> Classical games: Tigran Vartanovich Petrosian beat Rashid Gibiatovich Nezhmetdinov 3 to 0, with 2 draws. Was your ROFL from drug or just looking in mirror?|
|Oct-28-11|| ||tonsillolith: <DrMAL> I'm confident that <Mostolesdude> was referring to Petrosian's and Tal's styles of play, rather than their skill levels.|
Usually Tal plays wildly and sacrificially, but in comparison with Nezhmetdinov, Tal's style looks much more conservative and defensive, like Petrosian.
|Oct-29-11|| ||DrMAL: <tonsillolith> Well, Tal's style is not exactly "wild" and he does clearly need defensive posture here as black. His play bears no particular resemblance to Petrosian (who was generally better at defense anyway) and, even if it did, why "ROFL" sarcasm? Petrosian never lost to Rashid so that makes no sense either. Whatever, it is waste of time to discuss silly post, I will post analysis of game when finished with a few others, it is probably best game between these two magicians that has been analyzed many times before, and revisit with aid of latest engine should reveal even more, cheers.|
|Oct-29-11|| ||juan31: Un Juego de ajedrez de mucha calidad un super jugador Gibiatovich|
|Oct-30-11|| ||DrMAL: 6...Nbd7 looked suspicious and, upon checking, PGN is wrong. Correct move order played was 6...a6 7.0-0 Qc7 8.f4 Nbd7 transposition. Games has been heavily analyzed in many excellent sources including book I recommended "Magic of Chess Tactics" and it's DVD-ROM containing smaller selection of games from book http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail....|
|Oct-30-11|| ||DrMAL: First about opening, 6.g4! is critical move today this is why Najdorf move order 5.a6 was added to Scheveningen theory (CG "Najdorf" above is incorrect but game transposed anyway) as I posted a few times, particularly in Karpov vs Kasparov, 1984 with silly argument from low level player starting on Aug-26-11 and ending with stupid statement(s) on Sep-08-11. In any event Keres attack with early g4! was not well explored 50 years ago when game was played, it became key problem for Kasparov in 1984 WC match where he invented addition of Najdorf 5.a6 to avoid it. Usual setup then was played here where, with 8.f4 already played, 9.g4 was very risky, creating sharp doubled-edged game as expected from these two attacking geniuses. Move 9.g4 is well justified by white's big lead in development and by black's lack of space.|
11...Nc5 logically adds pressure to e4 but it was not best plan, simply 11...h6 to stop 12.g5 or 11...Nb6 (for Nfd7) were certainly better. 12...e5?! follows basic idea to counter flank attack in center but here it created weaknesses on f5 and d5 giving white some edge. With moves that followed 15.Nh6! stopped 0-0 and attacked f7 pawn, 15...Ne6 was strong defensive reply. But after 16.Bg2 threatening N on f6, 16...Nf4 was better than 16...Be7?! to prevent 17.Rxf6! sac Rashid played. Now black K has no safe place, this becomes more evident after 18.Nd5! where maybe 18...Bxd5 was better but then white's bishop pair after Be3 are extremely strong, particularly in endgame later on. As noted by other analyses simply 21.Qxf4! gives big advantage with usual LS play later on, but Nezmetdinov played 21.e5!? in his magical style.
Here, 21...Bh4! was correct way to defend but finding how OTB is nearly impossible to see (22.Qd4 Rf8! 23.Rd1 Rc8! can actually hold). Instead Tal played what appears to be only OK move (21...Bg5 looks ugly) and 22.Re1! creates nasty pin. This is where game fell apart, 22...Bxd5 23.Rxe5+ was best with solid advantage white and 22...Qd6?! probably loses after 23.Qd4 or 23.c4 but 22.f6? lost on spot to 23.Nxf6+! Qxf6 24.Qd4! finish afterwards was just one way for white to complete this timeless, fabulous game.
|Dec-15-11|| ||Penguincw: Weird. That's Pun of the Day today. Topalov vs Kamsky, 2011|
