|Jul-18-04|| ||samvega: fantastic!
15..Rxe1+ 16.Rxe1 Qxe4?? 17.Bg5
17..Kxg7 18.Rxd5 cxd5 19.Qb5+
17..Bc4 18.Qc2 (i think, threatening Qxg6 or Qa4)
|Aug-07-11|| ||dale2222222: awesome pun|
|Aug-07-11|| ||sevenseaman: Short work, like a Monday puzzle!|
|Aug-07-11|| ||Ryan Razo: Black could have gone for 14...e7, instead of making a pointless move that leads to disaster.|
Remember that Boris Spassky was a ferocious attacker up to the mid 60's! This game demonstrates a classic example of what I call a 'tactical castling'.

What do you mean by this? White has to castle Q-side because Black has a ready-made attack on the K-side.
Yes, I saw the same lines as you while playing through the game, and spent the most time wondering about White's response to 17...Bc4. I also thought White would reply 18. Qc2, as after 18...Kxb7 19. Qa4 White is threatening 20. Qxa7+ Kc8 21. Qa8#. Black can't defend with 19...Bd5 (blocking the d-file and giving Black's king a flight square on d7) because his bishop is pinned against the his queen on h4.
|Aug-07-11|| ||Ryan Razo: <newzild> 'Tactical castling' since it sets up the move 15.Nxe4. Black cannot take it because of the White rook on the d-file.|
If, however, Black persists with 15...xe4, then White simply replies 16.xd8+! then after 16...xd8 17.Bg5+ picks up the Black Queen:

|Aug-07-11|| ||Nezhmetdinov: What if black plays 15...Rxd1 and then takes the knight?|
|Aug-07-11|| ||faulenzer: Good question. Black looks pretty good after 15...xd1 16. xd1 xe4 17. d8+ xd8 18. g5+ hxg5 19. xe4 e7|
|Aug-07-11|| ||acme: Why not 9. Nxg6?|
|Aug-07-11|| ||acme: Oh never mind, I missed 9. ...Nxf6. The key here is the bishop on d6 which won't allow 10. Qe5+.|
This is the problem when you remember patterns and try to make moves intuitively!
|Aug-07-11|| ||Nilsson: But not after 15...Rxd1 16.Rxd1 Qxe4
|Aug-07-11|| ||DrMAL: Niedermyer! DEAD! Thanx Boris LOL. http://www.moviesounds.com/animal/d...|
|Aug-07-11|| ||psmith: <faulenzer>:
A post above by <samvega> suggests, if I read it rightL
15... Rxd1 16. Rxd1 Qxe4 17. Bg5 threatening Rd8#. Black can give up his Queen with 17...Qd5 18. Rxd5 cxd5 19. Be3 but then White has a piece more than in your line.
|Aug-07-11|| ||WhiteRook48: nice job by Spassky|
|Aug-08-11|| ||kevin86: Going with the pun:black poor play was rightly "drilled" by Spassky.|
|Aug-22-11|| ||horseboat: Judging by this game and his career record, it would appear that it was Neidermayr himself who was "worthless and weak"...|
