|Mar-16-05|| ||minimaxing: 48. Nh4
Strategy of grim knight on rim.
|Mar-16-05|| ||Benzol: 48...g5 49.♖g6+ ♔f7 then what happens? |
|Mar-16-05|| ||DWINS: <Rank Amateur> and <notsodeepthought>,
After 49...Kg5, White forces mate with
50.Ne3 threatening 51.f4++
<Benzol>, White simply plays 50.Nxh8+ and Black is dead.
|Mar-16-05|| ||Nezhmetdinov: <Benzol> 49 Ng6! |
|Mar-16-05|| ||Benzol: <Nezmetdinov> Very good! thankyou. |
|Mar-16-05|| ||dorn: <Rank Amateur> <notsodeepthought> <ice lemon tea>:|
49. Nxf5+ Kg5
50. Ne3 Rf7
51. f4+ Rxf4
|Mar-16-05|| ||charms: Nh4 is nice, but the position is won anyway. b5, intending Kd6-c5-b4 and Ne5, should win as well. |
|Mar-16-05|| ||Cathal: Hello! Just joined up to the site. I'm not going to post any analysis owing to being abysmal at chess. I got this though. Beginners luck? |
|Mar-16-05|| ||ice lemon tea: <dorn> u r right...thanx! |
|Mar-16-05|| ||chessdr: <DWINS> and <dorn>, nice finding 50. Ne3!. It is easy to overlook quiet moves in a wide-open position. 50. Nh6 does the same thing. |
|Mar-16-05|| ||Kingdumb: This one HAD to be easy if even I found it. Took about 10 seconds. Of course it helped that white didn't have too many pieces to choose from to move. |
|Mar-16-05|| ||Doctor Who: Welcome Cathal. If you got this one, then well done indeed. This was a good intermediate puzzle. They get harder as the week progresses until on Sunday they are near-impossible. |
|Mar-16-05|| ||Holden: Great example of the knight proving better than the bishop in a closed game! |
|Mar-16-05|| ||notsodeepthought: <DWINS> and <dorn> Thanks, I missed 50 Ne3. |
|Mar-16-05|| ||ImaPatzer: Petrosian sure loves his Knights. Check out his beautiful last move in <Petrosian vs Spassky, 1966> |
|Mar-16-05|| ||kevin86: On Nimzowich's quote-there is a story that during one Tournament Emmanuel Lasker pulled out a cigar and prepared to smoke it.As there was NO SMOKING at said tournament,Nimzowich called the referee over to complain about his opponent smoking.The ref said "He's not smoking.
Nimzo replied-"But he is threatening to smoke!"
Ok,should white double check to move the king at move 49? (if black takes the rook)
|Mar-16-05|| ||YouRang: Woo hoo! I'm on a 3-game streak! In this case, the winning move stands out because there are no other interesting alternatives. This position was screaming for a Knight fork. |
|Mar-16-05|| ||PizzatheHut: This initial position reminds me of the famous endgame in which Alekhine sacrifices a piece to obtain a mate in a position very near zugzwang. |
|Mar-16-05|| ||aw1988: Unfortunately, this is much too easy for a Wednesday puzzle. There is really only one possible move here. |
|Mar-16-05|| ||dunforgiven: <aw1988> i agree with you, this is an easy one (although being the newbie that i am, it took me around 5 minutes to get the right move, hehehe). but anyway, i got it too |
|Mar-16-05|| ||Mating Net: Classic case of Good Knight, Bad Bishop. So much for the Knight on the rim is grim theory, at least for this game. |
|Mar-16-05|| ||erikcu: I am just happy to be kibitzing with the likes of Dr. Who... The Tom Baker Dr. Who none the less... Chessgames.com: where nerds congregate. Not much to add about the game, besides I like plugging in the late week puzzles into the chess applet Jester... Unfortunately, recently I have been getting some bugs where, it makes outrageous moves, or it declares checkmate when it is not checkmate.
Are there any other free programs out there for plugging in puzzles. |
|Nov-04-08|| ||arsen387: One of Petrosian's unknown brilliances. Great B sac and a fantastic finish! The final postion is amazing. some lines|
1)48..Kxh6 49.Nxf5+ Kg5 50.Ne3 Rf7 51.f4+ Rxf4 52.gxf4#
2) and most amazing one 18..Rxh7 49.Rxh7! Kxh7 50.Nxf5+ Kg8 51.Nxe7+ Kf7 52.Nxc8 3 consecutive N captures leave black with nothing
|Jun-22-09|| ||pom nasayao: White's last move is a bolt from the blue!|
|Jan-15-10|| ||elohah: Strategical masterpiece by Petrosian.|
