Mar-15-05  soberknight: Bxb4??
Mar-15-05  Saruman: <soberknight> Yes 12.-Bxb4 seems a bit awkward and very computerish. The point however is that the a and b-pawns becomes dangerous passed pawns. If that is worth the strong bishop I cant tell for sure.
Mar-15-05  RookFile: Don't be too harsh on the computer.
Player over this game of Morphy's.
Morphy has the fantastic conception
of giving up his bishop, in an ending,
to obtain two connected passed pawns
against a knight. We cannnot find a
way to save the game for the side
up a piece.

T Lichtenhein vs Morphy, 1857

Mar-15-05  soberknight: <Rookfile> The Morphy endgame is interesting. It should remind us of the famous bishop sacrifice in Topalov vs Shirov, 1998. However, in both case the endgame was down to a single piece on each side. In such situations you are more likely to benefit by sacrificing a piece for a pawn or two. With a full board of pieces, the computer stood no chance.

  kevinatcausa: I took 'The Beast' to mean Kasparov, and was working my way through all the Kasparov/Polgar games...doh!
Dec-19-07  Eric The Great: After searching through all the 'Belle' (for Beauty's name) games, I got lucky to search for Polgar vs Computer. I had almost stopped looking when I got to the 'Belle' game which was already used in a clue and saw the 'too late' banner.
