Apr-27-06  sandrea: 40. g4 g5+ 41. Kg3 Ne4+ and white loses queen
Nov-03-12  DrGridlock: White has a won position at move 35.
Missing Qf5 (at move 35) and Kg1 (at move 36) throws the game to Black. No wonder Short went 0-6 (with 13 draws) against Nunn, with play like this.

  perfidious: The record in decisive games between these players was Nunn 5-0, with their games from Hastings being all but duplications of each other.

Every player has opponents against whom he/she does not perform well, and it is obvious to the well-informed which of these players had the better career.

Much easier for some to fire volleys of criticism from the sidelines and tell us how no-one out there can really play, though.

Into which category do you fall?

Maybe you should stick to your regurgitation of engine analysis which replaces understanding of the game-at least there, you are on more or less firm ground, unlike your excursion into oblivion which is your first post on this page.

In my first post, I proffered that White's position was completely won at move 35. Is this the proposition with which you disagree?

I also proffered that White went astray with moves 35 and 36. Is this the proposition with which you disagree?

Do you have an "understanding" of this game which disputes either of these propositions? Please save us from oblivion.

As Plato wrote in, "The Allegory of the Cave"

"Wouldn't he remember his first home, what passed for wisdom there, and his fellow prisoners, and consider himself happy and them pitiable? And wouldn't he disdain whatever honors, praises, and prizes were awarded there to the ones who guessed best which shadows followed which? Moreover, were he to return there, wouldn't he be rather bad at their game, no longer being accustomed to the darkness? Wouldn't it be said of him that he went up and came back with his eyes corrupted, and that it's not even worth trying to go up? And if they were somehow able to get their hands on and kill the man who attempts to release and lead them up, wouldn't they kill him?"

I guess whether or not one "wants" englightment depends on each particular situation.

The reality is that if you solely depend on human intuition you will get crushed in modern tournaments.
