|Mar-23-11|| ||Rob Morrison: There may be a flaw in this game early on. Black may simply win with 12. . . Ng4 13. h3 Nxf2! 14. Rxf2 (if white takes with Q or K then 14. . . Bd4 is crushing) Qxg3.|
Maybe Nez was worried about 15. Nd5 but then 15. . . Ne5 looks solid for black with a pawn up and, more important, a huge initiative.
Comments? Am I missing something simple?
|Mar-24-11|| ||Eric Schiller: @Rob Morrison: as I pointed out in my book on this game and elsewhere 12...Ng4 is refuted. You missed 14.Qxf2! Bd4 15. Qxd4!! Nxd4 16.Nd5 which I analyzed in depth with help from Kasparov and others.|
|Mar-24-11|| ||MaxxLange: Excellent!
Analyzing with Kasparov must be just insane. Analyzing these kinds of sharp positions with with even a strong IM blew my circuits out.
|Mar-24-11|| ||I play the Fred: Eric Schiller: I don't doubt you're right, but in that line what happens after 16...c5, then?|
|Mar-24-11|| ||Shams: <I play the Fred> Maybe some combination of Nf6+, possibly Rf4 kicking the queen to a discovery square, followed by Ne2 ripping open the long diagonal?|

|Jun-07-11|| ||Doctor Aust: Great, great combination. Can believe it was a favourite of Tal's - didn't he say Nezhmetdinov was one of his favourite players? Which tells you something about Tal, too, given that Nezhmetdinov had a lifetime plus score against him.|
There is another wonderful remark about this game attributed to Polugaevsky, which I don't think has been quoted here in all the mammoth kibitz:
"I must have beaten Rashid a dozen times. But that one loss was so good I would have traded them all to be on the other side of the board."
Somehow that remark seems to sums up the reason all my favourite players played the game. Think I will put Nezhmetdinov up there with them.
|Jun-23-11|| ||FSR: IM Andrew D Martin analyzes this game at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8VpC.... He concludes, with help from his silicon friends, that 12...Ng4! 13.h3 Nxf2 14.Qxf2 Bd4 was indeed winning for Black.|
|Jun-23-11|| ||Eric Schiller: Revisiting 16...ca5, I think Martin didn't give the computers enough time. Critical is 17.Ne2 Nxe2+ 18. Bxe2 f5 19.Rf4 Qg5

When White can play 20.Raf1 and the attack is far from over. The f-pawn will fall.

My analysis is simply the best on this game. (No one else comes close.)
|Aug-02-11|| ||DrMAL: This game is also one of my favorites, not only for the fascinating tactics but also for understanding the style that influenced Tal and, mainly through him, others. I could write a lot about this game, but most of the tactics one can easily find with the aid of a good engine.|
The more subtle aspects of style are much more difficult to find. A good example is the move 9...Ng4 that normally is thought of as simply opening the way for black's queen to go to h4, such as in Andrew Martin's excellent video. http://www.youtube.com/user/YMChess...
This move has another dimension of style to it, that Tal picked up on and used often. If one looks at all the different moves black can make on move 9 there are many good ones (e.g., Ne5, Nb4, a6, Ng4, Re8, Nd7, a5, Be6, b6, Nd4, Qe7, Nh5) but only Ng4 is properly answered by Nf3 instead of Nge2.
In other words, Nge2 for white fits this position for basically all of black's moves, whether immediately 10.Nge2 or a few moves later. All except for 9...Ng4 in which case Nf3 is correct and Nge2 is a mistake. It is this sort of subtlety that Tal later employs where intuitive moves become mistakes.
In terms of tactics, despite all the books and posts simple but very counter-intuitive 24.a3 actually saves the day for white. 24.Rh1 (an intuitive move) was the losing mistake.
|Aug-02-11|| ||maxi: <LIFE Master AJ>: Well, I don't know if it is the best, but, no doubt, it is good and detailed and a starting point for analysis. Do you keep it up to date in regard to other people's analysis?|

|Aug-02-11|| ||maxi: I believe Nezhmetdinov never took chess quite seriously. He loved checkers. He also had to join the army in his youth. And he loved attacking in chess; at times this is not the correct way to go if you want to obtain good results. But he certainly was a great natural player.|
If somebody knows of a detailed bio please let me know.
|Aug-02-11|| ||DrMAL: <ZZpatzer: <My analysis is simply the best on this game. (No one else comes close.)>> Don't know where that comment came from, must be some troll who earned IGNORE. |
Andrew Martin states in his video (link above, at around 10:50 there) that 27.Ng1 can draw. I guess he did not run his engine long enough since, after this, 27...Rxg3 still wins.
|Aug-05-11|| ||jessicafischerqueen: <maxi> I am currently making a video biography of <Rashid> which I will upload to youtube at the end of this month.|
In the mean time, here are two books worth buying for a detailed biography of this fabulous chess master:
1. <Nezhmetdinov's Best Games of Chess>
Translated by Dale Brandreth
Caissa Editions, 2000.
Autobiography, plenty of insight into his character and life from his own words, his own annotations of many of his games.
2. <Nezhmetdinov: Chess Assassin>
Thinker's Press, Inc.,
An excellent survey of <Nezh's> games, including some rarities, with a generous and detailed account of his life, cradle to grave.
Added bonus is a good number of photographs of <Nezh> at various stages of his life.
Online biographical resources:
This one is excellent and very detailed, you need to use the Google Translator to read it if you don't read Russian
This one also good, in Spanish, but easily read with the Google translator.

|Aug-12-11|| ||MumbaiIndians: My interestin intuition is that Nezh has given more unusual Queen sacrifices then any other player....and it should be damn true!!!|
|Aug-17-11|| ||maxi: Hi, <jessicafischerqueen>. I had missed your answer till now. Thank you for the sources. He was an extremely talented player and it is a trill to see his games.|
|Aug-18-11|| ||maxi: Some of them are so good it is even a thrill to see them.|
|Sep-06-11|| ||perfidious: <Garech: ....I believe I have found a win for white in the 20.Nxc7 variation:|
...Rxf4 21.gxf4 g3 22.Nxg3 Qxg3+ 23.Kh1 Qh3+ 24.Kg1 Nxd3 25.Qf3 Nxb2 26.Nxa8 Nd4 27.Qxh3 Bxh3 28.Rf2!
and white wins tactically.>
Sean, I'm not sure that I agree with your assessment at the end, though I believe White is better after 28....Nd3 29.Rd1 Nxf2 30.Rxd4 Bg7 31.e5 dxe5 32.Rd8+ Kf7 33.Kxf2.
<For this reason I believe that the best black can do is take the perpetual from move 22.
Thus it appears that the celebrated move 19...Be6! is refuted by 20.Nxc7, as it saves the game for white and gains a draw. What do you think?>
This looks the best chance so far as I can tell.
|Sep-26-11|| ||scormus: <jessicafischerqueen Youtube video> Thats great nes, I'll definitely lok it up. Killegar Chess made a great video of this game, and I was quite captivated as I played it through. For sheer thrill, Nez has to rival or even surpass the Wizard of Riga|
|Sep-29-11|| ||sevenseaman: <24...Rxf4>! Nezh uses his Q as covering fire to sneak his R into a super position, selling <Polu> a dummy.|
Its a point of <no return>. Here I find Nezh as deadly as <Tal>
|Dec-15-11|| ||TheRavenPK: Every year I am looking at this game again and again. Happy Birthday Nezh.|
|Dec-15-11|| ||rapidcitychess: A game for centuries to come.|
