|Oct-30-05|| ||Averageguy: Holger?|
|Oct-30-05|| ||Larsker: While I totally approve of all the AJ bashing - well, sort of - I somehow feel that it's inappropriate to hold this particular game - my favourite game of chess - hostage to it. The best move is of course 26 ... Bg7. Everybody's sitting on the edge of their seats and Nez does his famous quiet move. The rest is silence.|
|Oct-30-05|| ||Eric Schiller: <Larsker> I agree. The game appears in many collections of favorite games here, for good reason! I'm working now on revising the analysis I did a dozen years ago, and hope to have it out soon.|
|Oct-31-05|| ||Averageguy: <Larsker>In what way does this page play hostage to AJ-Bashing?|
|Oct-31-05|| ||Larsker: <In what way does this page play hostage to AJ-Bashing?> Well, cg.com had to close down the Goldsby page and now the dispute just moves on to this page. Before we know it, this is the new Goldsby page - and anyone wanting to get information about this game will have to wade through tons of pro- and anti-Goldsby messages. |
It's not fair to the users of cg.com. I recently went through a bunch of games on this site and enjoyed the different commentaries - many of them informative as to the background of the games, variations, etc. After all, it IS the main purpose of this site to talk about chess and not about whether Goldsby is one's cup of tea or not.
I enjoy the Goldsby saga just as much as the next guy - but only as long as it is restricted to his own page.
|Oct-31-05|| ||aragorn69: I totally second what our friend <Larsker> is saying. And <cg> should delete all the AJ kibbitz on it.|
|Dec-03-05|| ||chesscrazy: I think this is under the wrong section in the Opening Explorer (go under "Old Indian" and you'll find that this game is under 3.e4 even though that the third move is 3.Nc3)! Sorry if someone already posted something like what I said because I was too lazy to read through everybody's kibitz!|
|Feb-07-06|| ||LluviaSean: wow. this is a great king hunt. the best was kasparov-topalov wijk an zee. i forget the year of "Kasparov's Immortal".|
|Feb-15-06|| ||notyetagm: Does anyone know why this game does not appear in the Nunn/Cozzens book The King Hunt? Dr. Nunn says that he deleted several games in the original that did not pass modern inspection in converting the material to algebraic notation. Does anyone know if this game was thusly deleted and if so, why?|
|Feb-15-06|| ||notyetagm: What an incredible tactical sequence by Nezhmetdinov :24 ... xf4!! 25. x f3++ 26. d4 g7!. He gives up his queen and then plays the deadly quiet move 26 ... g7! and the White king has no escape.|
|Feb-15-06|| ||pawn to QB4: Obviously this game stands comparison with any in Nunn/Cozens. It's not in my copy of Cozen's original so wasn't deleted as not passing modern inspection. I suspect Dr Nunn didn't include it because he seems to have gone out of his way to find lesser-known games, and this is comparatively familiar. Personally, in his place I'd have grabbed the chance to introduce anyone to Rashid Nezhmetdinov.|
|Feb-16-06|| ||notyetagm: <pawn to QB4> Thanks for the info. Since you have Cozzen's original, could you please tell me which of the games were cut by Dr. Nunn in creating the algebraic version?|
|Feb-16-06|| ||pawn to QB4: Cheers. I would but I don't have the new version! I remember someone listed all the games in the Nunn update as a Game Collection here, but can't find it yet.|
|Feb-19-06|| ||MorphyMatt: <fgh> Close, but the most complicated game is Velimirovic vs Ljubojevic, 1972|
|Feb-21-06|| ||Kola: <MorphyMatt: <fgh> Close, but the most complicated game is Velimirovic vs Ljubojevic, 1972>|
Nah, this can never be the most complecated game. It's fairly book knowledge. It does not compare to the Nezh v polug. game. I wonder why Nezh never made it to GM status.
|Feb-21-06|| ||Kola: I respect the waiting moves in this game! What!!! I can buy this game on ebay, just for the game to be labelled Kola v Polugayevsky, I'll pay. Such aesthetics. I'm full.|
|May-18-06|| ||RandomVisitor: 24.a3 Nxc2 25.Qxc2 Raf8 26.Rh1! Rxf4 27.Rxh2 Rf3+ 28.Kd4 Be3+ 29.Kc3 Bc5+ 30.Kd2 and perpetual check is best play. But Black has other possible 25th moves such as 25...Qh3 26.Bxe5 dxe5 27.Kd3 that possibly favor Black.|
|Jun-30-06|| ||al wazir: If anyone's interested, the anecdote <ArturoRivera> related on p. 4 is a lot older than Tal. I read it in one of Assiac's old columns in _The New Statesman and Nation_, written ca. 1948 -- and in place of Tal, I think it was Rubinstein who refused an offer of a draw so that he could force a draw.|
|Jun-30-06|| ||whatthefat: <al wazir>
The Tal anecdote regards his game with Benko in the last round of the 1959 Candidates, I believe: Tal vs Benko, 1959
|Jun-30-06|| ||harcee sarmiento: rashid is the best in queen sacrifice i ever seen!|
|Jun-30-06|| ||MichaelJHuman: This thread could use a bit more chess discussion, and less chest beating.|
That being said, I can see why this game is so interesting to people.
|Jun-30-06|| ||dakgootje: <Averageguy: Holger?> If im not terrible mistaken thats one of the admins on playchess. Thats to say i seem to remember that i followed some games hosted by holger|
|Jun-30-06|| ||FENfiend: *sigh* excellent game, controversial discussion. sad to see it wasn't about chess most of the time. I would just like to thank <Eric Schiller> for his dedication, hard work, and being the silent voice of reason we should all aspire to be.
this game amazes me in how the pieces naturally become active to support the momentum. all in all, a beautiful sequence that pushes the king across the board.|
|Jun-30-06|| ||al wazir: <whatthefat>: I can't document my claim that the story antedates Tal. You can trust my memory or not, as you choose. It's the sort of thing many arrogant GMs might have said and done.|
|Jun-30-06|| ||kevin86: This is a great game! Not bad-twelve pages of commentary and in almost 100 collections.|
The partie of sacrifices is brilliant indeed. Obviously,the final blow will fall on b6. Virtually every piece and pawn was in on the mate!
