|Apr-21-13|| ||Conrad93: <An inspiring and complicated game. Don't know whether it is the game of the century but it's exciting to play through and any of us would have been proud to have played it.
The innocent reader might stumble upon this gem and notice with approval that it has 15 pages of kibitzing.|
Such an innocent might reasonably speculate that this depth of commentary would be worth reading. He (or she, for innocence knows no gender boundaries) might fondly dream that the kibitzing contains such pearls of chess understanding, deep insights, the wisdom of crowds and the ageless knowledge of wise men (and women, for wisdom like innocence knows no ...etc, etc, etc.)
And, indeed, there are such pearls in those 15 pages. But there is an awful lot of rubbish too.
My advice? If you haven't read the kibitzing before I wouldn't bother now.
And if you were one of the contributors to the earlier debate, please, please, please don't reopen it. Let the past be the past.>
Are you trying to sound pretentious?
|Jun-03-13|| ||Conrad93: White could have drawn the game.|
|Jun-03-13|| ||KlingonBorgTatar: Gentlemen, wow!! Very deep analyses and commentaries!! I'd like to join the fray but I guess you guys said it all. My Two cents worth though: can somebody be Nezh's advocate and plead his case before FIDE? He was never awarded the GM title. He was RSFSR champion and any RSFSR champ deserves the GM title. Can the Russian and Tatar Chess Federation take this up? |
Btw, grab the 2 English books and if you have the chance, the Russian Black Series on Super Nezh. There are more specimens of brillancies. Also, Nezh was a grandmaster of Russian checkers and there are equally brillant checkers play in the Fitzkultura I Sport book. I was never a checker player but this book opened my eyes to this game.
|Aug-25-13|| ||sfm: Polugayevski understood nothing about development. Most of the time he is moving his king!|
|Aug-25-13|| ||sfm: Can't recall ever having seen a game where the mating player (had the opponent not resigned) would have had 3 different mating moves to choose between (Nb4,Nc5,Rb6), none of them with a queen. Especially the clean-mate 'economical' one with Rb6 is pretty.|
|Aug-25-13|| ||sfm: <White could have drawn the game.>
Right, he even had a small advantage at some point (e.g. after 1.d4)|
|Aug-25-13|| ||PhilFeeley: 24...Rxf4!! One of the greatest moves ever. Do you suppose he saw all the way to the mate 10 moves later?|
|Sep-28-13|| ||Mudphudder: This guy Nezhmetdinov really REALLY likes to sac his queen...second great queen sac'ing game I've seen from him.|
|Nov-07-13|| ||CapitanJowy: A amazing sacrifice for a perfect final attack.
|Feb-22-14|| ||PJs Studio: I could only see 33...Rf6 (Threatening mate with 34.Ra6) 34.Bxf6 Bxf6 and mate with 35...Bd8 but Nc6+ is faster.|
|Mar-02-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: http://www.ajschess.com/lifemastera...|
|Mar-18-14|| ||Makavelli II: Excellent game! White follows all the rules by developing his pieces as early as possible, but I believe 11.Nge3 & 12.Ng3 were mistakes that black really should have punished with 11..Bd4+ followed by f5 and black has a better game. I don't know why a4 was played in this position because it's a move without logic, having said that black finds the moves to the mate pretty easily |

|Mar-18-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: 27.a4,
Black's threat was pretty simple, play ...b5; and then Nc4#. White's move was an effort to stop this.
(I think I might explain this on my web page ...)
|Mar-18-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Another threat was 27...b5; and then 28...Nc6++. (Double-check ... and mate.)|
|Mar-18-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: <<This guy Nezhmetdinov really REALLY likes to sac his queen...>> |
I don't know if its true, but a Russian master said he saw Nezh do a simul, said he sacked his Queen in about half of the games in the simul.
|Mar-19-14|| ||Makavelli II: Yes but black wouldn't want his knight on c4 when white has a pawn on b3 :)|
|Mar-19-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: I could believe that ... (above)
only about Nezhmedtdinov!!!
|Apr-09-14|| ||tranquilsimplicity: On a list of the 10 best games in my opinion, this would probably be first!|

|Apr-12-14|| ||john barleycorn: <ChessVip: Lecture with GM Seirawan: >|
nice one. thanks.
|Apr-23-14|| ||cplyakap: 24...Rxf4!! only.|
|Aug-30-14|| ||Whitehat1963: My lack of visual memory makes me an abysmal chessplayer, but it's great for rediscovering amazing games like this one!|
|Sep-29-14|| ||goggi: 27.a4?! After this black forces mate. But after 27.Nc3!! the position is very complex:
(White wanted to take "Rf3".)
28.Nb5!(The only move) a6!!
(28...c5+?? 29.dc6 bc6 30.Nxd6 ;28...Ned3+? 29.Kc4 Nxb2+ 30.Kxb4 Nxd1 31.Rxd1 )
(29.Nxc7 b5 30.Nxb5 ab5 )
(31.Kc4 Nxb2+ 32.Kxb4 Bc3# a-file!)
32.Ke4 Tf8! and 33...Rf4#
|Sep-29-14|| ||farshids: 19... knight to f3+. Wins a rook and pawn at least for black and threatens mate after 20 RxF3 Pxf3...|
