|Jul-19-02|| ||Sneaky: A famous game, and rightfully so. |
Spassky gives up a knight and a whole rook, in order to create the world's most annoying passed pawn... on move 15 no less!
|Jul-19-02|| ||Doctor Who: What the heck kind of a move was 16 Rf1?
Why not 16 Rg1 and stop the pawn from queening? |
|Jul-20-02|| ||Sneaky: If Rg1 it would have worked out just as bad:|
16. Rg1 Qh4+ 17. Kd1 Qh1 18. Qc3 Qxg1+ etc.
|Mar-09-03|| ||Rookpawn: The winning variation for Black after 17... gxf1=Q+ is: 18. Bxf1 Bxg4+ 19. Kc1 Qe1+ 20. Qd1 Qxd1#. |
|Mar-09-03|| ||drukenknight: isnt 13 Bxg4 more accurate? it seems as though white forgot that he was now on the defense after swapping off the N. |
gee now that I think about it, wouldnt 11 Bxg4 make more sense? Again, I have to say it looks like white forgot that he no longer was playing this swashbuckling attack vs the K but rather was ahead in material and so should exchange in order to keep black from succesfully counterattacking.
This Nimzo Larsen, Nimzovitch attack whatever you call it is a fairly decent attacking weapon for white when he is able to play it that way.
The extra pawns moves b3/c4 you would think would slow white down but often they dont. It makes you wonder why doesnt white do this when he plays the Kings gambit?
|Mar-10-03|| ||ShadoutMapes: 13.Bxg4 Bxg4 14.hxg4 hxg3 15.Rg1 Rh1 and it goes back into the game, unless there's an improvement over this line.|
Another interesting variation is the fireworks that could have gone off after 12.Nc3 Rxd2! Anyone want to elaborate on that?
|Mar-10-03|| ||drukenknight: dude hxg4 is just begging for trouble: 13. Bxg4 Bxg4 14 Bxg7 |
|Mar-10-03|| ||drukenknight: you like Nimzovitch attack? so do these guys:
Petrosian vs Fischer, 1971
|Mar-10-03|| ||Honza Cervenka: If 13.Bxg4 Bxg4 14.Bxg7, then simply 14...hxg3. 15.Bxh8 is then bad for 15...g2 16.Rg1 Qh4 mate. |
|Mar-10-03|| ||drukenknight: in the game as played why not: 14 RxR RxR 15 Bf3? |
|Mar-10-03|| ||ughaibu: I think black can just take it, he'll have two passed pawns supported by a rook on an adjacent file with all of white's pieces stuck over on the queenside. |
|Mar-10-03|| ||drukenknight: yeah I know but I am trying to get the queen active. I have not yet looked at HOnza's line, but I guess I wont be taking the rook, huh? |
Larsen looks a little slow to use his fianchetto B, perhaps 13 Bxg7? Remember that 1965 game w/ Tal, he messed that one up when he let the fian. B stay back.
|Mar-10-03|| ||ughaibu: I think black can just take on g3 and if white takes the rook there's g2 threatening both the rook and Qh4 followed by Ne3. |
|Mar-10-03|| ||drukenknight: Back to this again; what about 13 Bf3? |
|Mar-10-03|| ||ughaibu: Again hxg3 looks good enough. |
|Mar-10-03|| ||drukenknight: ...Bg2 |
|Mar-11-03|| ||ughaibu: N-f2-d3. |
|Mar-14-03|| ||ShadoutMapes: dk, as Honza said, if black plays hxg3, it leads to an overwhelming attack, white may as well take the knight.|
13.Bxg7 Rh7 and white must protect the bishop and black can play hxg3. 13.Bf3 might pull white out of the fire temporarily, but I doubt Larsen saw 14... Rh1! in advance.
|Apr-29-03|| ||JGD: Spassy played brilliantly, though it is unfortunate that the Nimzo Larsen was beaten so soon. Most textbooks give this game as the "conventional example" game of this opening, certainly putting a damper on its popularity. The truth is, it is a fairly viable weapon that is worth a try at your local club. |
|Jul-31-03|| ||uponthehill: The funniest game ever! Larsen plays Larsen opening and is brilliantly knocked down :) Who fights with sword, dies from sword. |
|Jul-31-03|| ||PVS: I think white goes wrong a little earlier with 10. f4 which allowed 10...Ng4. |
|Jul-31-03|| ||PVS: This happened around the time I began following international chess. Interestingly, these were two of my three favourite players and both were playing first board in this event. My other favourite was Fischer. It was not because I found them to be the three best players in the world, but the three most interesting and creative. I was largely unaware of Tal at that point. |
|Feb-07-04|| ||GoodKnight: Lol. That's the longest move to write:
17. ... gxf1=Q+
|Feb-08-04|| ||ughaibu: It could be longer if it was white promoting as "8"s are fatter than "1"s, also it could be double check and what symbols are used for "double check and mate"? |
|Feb-08-04|| ||Catfriend: It seems a hot theme to discuss...Edward Lasker vs Alekhine, 1913|
