|Sep-13-14|| ||tazztazz: sorry i see the 26...kxf8 leads to quick mate through 27.qxg8.|
|Sep-13-14|| ||Mating Net: Evans' tendency to grab pawns prematurely cost him in this game. Not a good idea to give Spassky the initiative.|
|Apr-07-15|| ||A.T PhoneHome: So, THIS is the famous Spassky-Evans game I've heard about... It lives up to its reputation, I can tell you that!|
That final move by Spassky is just a wicked way to end this game or any game for that matter (I bet many if not all of us would be proud of playing a move which reveals a discovered check and is ITSELF a check!).
|Jan-17-16|| ||offramp: It's a really good game. The pun is a bit weak.|
|Jan-17-16|| ||jith1207: Wouldn't Rxe7 be a fantastic finish as well, in place of the final move in the game line? If I'm not missing any of the good defenses I see, I believe that would be mesmerising as well.|
|Jan-17-16|| ||gars: What a beautiful game!|
|Jan-17-16|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: When Spassky was a bulldozer of combinations !|
|Jan-17-16|| ||Jack Kerouac: A Silicon sort of searing game.
Boris brilliance to be admired.
|Jan-17-16|| ||Fanques Fair: I tried to save Black with 20..., Nxd4 , but it runs beautifully into 21- Rxd4 !, Qxd4, 22- Bxf7!! and Black´s king is busted. What a brutal attack from Spassky. It seems there was no way out for Evans.|
|Jan-17-16|| ||Abdel Irada: <(I bet many if not all of us would be proud of playing a move which reveals a discovered check and is ITSELF a check!).>|
So much so, in fact, that there's even a name for such a move: "double check." :-D
|Jan-17-16|| ||morfishine: A great game like this should not be burdened by being defecated on by such a pathetic title|
'Latchkey KID' is stupid, nonsensical, irrelevant, ludicrous, inappropriate, inapplicable, idiotic, dumb and completely out of place.
The one incredibly weak connection, that is the acronym KID with kid in latchkey kid, in no way creates a pun or play on word or anything funny or relevant at all. There is no connection between latchkey kid and chess, nor this specific chess game, nor the opening, nor the venue and no connection between the players. So, in conclusion, this title fails completely to even meet the basic requirements of the most basic of word play
Yet, <CG> lets this crap through
Any wonder why I cancelled my premium membership?
|Jan-17-16|| ||keypusher: <morfishine>
Why stop at canceling your premium membership? Why not cease posting altogether? Chessgames and every kibitzer will be grateful.
|Jan-17-16|| ||Shams: <Any wonder why I cancelled my premium membership?>|
There was talk of little else, I assure you. Brando the Oscars-skipper would be proud.
|Jan-17-16|| ||Sally Simpson: Hi Morf,
I agree 100% with you but I'd never let minor trifles like a hopeless pun upset my day.
Ignore the so called puns. Or ask C.G. if they can have a 'Puns-Off' button so you cannot see the puns.
|Jan-17-16|| ||LoveThatJoker: I think it is fine for morfishine to critique a certain aspect of CG. He is a long-time member...one who has invested countless hours in making this a more diverse community.|
I think that all serious members of CG should work towards elevating each other, and expressing themselves honestly and in the interest of self-betterment.
No one improves by belittling others. The greatest work is the work on oneself.
Celebrate each other.
|Jan-17-16|| ||keypusher: I don't know if morfishine has always sucked as much as he does now -- if so, I never noticed. But all I know is these days he's trying to be Mr. Internet Badass, and he hasn't got the intelligence, the wit, or the knowledge to carry it off. He's dumb and nasty and that's it. He needs to do CG a favor and STOP POSTING.|
|Jan-17-16|| ||keypusher: And he doesn't "critique a certain aspect of chessgames." He goes from page to page and drops giant stinking turds everywhere he goes.|
|Jan-17-16|| ||WannaBe: Dear <morfishine>:
On behalf of CG.com I wish to apologize for the latest disappointment, of puns.
I would like to offer you the job of pun-master, where you can approve the puns submitted for the daily Game of the Day.
However, there are certain items that I must point out, as followed below:
1. This job is not paid, you will not be compensated in any amount, in any currency, <EVER>.
2. You must approve 365 puns a year, unless it's a leap year, then it's 366 puns.
3. If any other registered member on CG.com complains, you have to respond and handle the complain accordingly.
(Yes, even if the complainer come from someone who only registered 5 minutes ago)
Your acceptance of this position would be greatly appreciated.
|Jan-17-16|| ||zanzibar: You're peaking a little early <WannaBe>, in the contention for "Best Post of 2016".|
|Jan-17-16|| ||WannaBe: <Z> I've always been a fan of the 'British' understatement and their subtle way of humour and/or saying things.|
|Jan-19-16|| ||kevin86: The double check ends this early.|
|Feb-08-16|| ||dehanne: This is how to refute one of those double hole openings.|
|Feb-09-16|| ||RookFile: If it is, I didn't learn the lesson. I think that Spassky was very concrete here and took advantage of a peculiar set of circumstances. Before we go thinking this game is just Morphy vs. Amateur, we should remember that Evans was an excellent defender who won a lot of games like this by taking stuff and holding onto it. One slip and it would have been Spassky resigning this.|
|Oct-31-16|| ||rainingpieces: On move 22 it is tempting to consider all kinds of sacrifices, but the move played is probably the best. If 22...Nf6 then surely 23.Bxf7 must win on the spot, removing the defender of the g6-pawn.|
|Oct-10-17|| ||Dr Winston OBoogie: Once black plays Qc7 from here |

I think I'd have found the mate too. I'm not very good but call it intuition because I know I would have found it. A great game of chess :)
