Jan-29-15  jerseybob: Even though Smyslov's 11.dc was much praised at the time, this tripled-pawn variation hurts my eyes! But a few years later against Hartston, Uhlmann improved with 12..Nge5.

  PhilFeeley: John Watson examines this game in some detail in "Secrets of Modern Chess Strategy", but he stops at move 42 and says "and White won rather easily." I had to say What?! It doesn't look easy at all. What about 42...Ke7, stopping the white king from getting to f6 and then the h7 pawn? What does white do after that? Later, why not 57...Bxc4? Then it's queen against queen and 2P, but hardly "easy".

On 42...Ke7 White can break through with <43. g4> fxg4 44. Bxg4, now threatening Be6 followed by Bd5.

On 57...Bxc4, White can avoid the queen ending with <58. Bb1> a2 59. Bxa2 Bxa2 60. f6, winning back the Bishop and it's 2P against nothing.

Jan-30-18  tonsillolith: Don't you hate it when your opponent lets you inflict double or triple pawns but doesn't let you exploit them?
Sep-29-18  Saniyat24: pawn eating Kings...!
Sep-29-18  siggemannen: These guys really do plan ahead. If 34...Rc8 then 35.Rxe4 wins the bishop
