|Jun-30-04|| ||kevin86: The fork of the mighty rooks by the mere pawn makes a pretty picture.|
(This must be pawn week!)
|Jun-30-04|| ||blitzkrieg: can somebody tell me why would white capture the knight, ed4?i think capturing the knight isnt that much forced. |
|Jun-30-04|| ||markt: If not 21.exd4, loss of at least one pawn seems inevitable. |
|Jun-30-04|| ||AliceInWonderland: This might not be the best place to ask this question, but which book(s) is(are) considered good for studying end games? |
|Jun-30-04|| ||Geronimo: <AliceInWonderland> check out the discussion thread on Alburt v. Kasparov 1978. We just had a good discussion on endgame materials last week.|
On this game I don't like white's position after 8.dxc5. Black is much better off for developing pieces and seems to have complete dominance in the centre.
|Jun-30-04|| ||Sneaky: For tpstar:
Is this the real life- <1. d4 d5 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. Bg5 Be7 5. Nf3 O-O>
Or is it just fantasy- <6. c5?! b6 7. b4 bxc5 8. dxc5 a5 9. a3>
Caught in a landslide- <9...d4>
No escape from reality- <10. Bxf6 gxf6 11. Na4 e5>
Open your eyes <12. b5 Be6 13. g3 c6
14. bxc6 Nxc6 15. Bg2>
Look up to the skies <15...Rb8> and see- <16. Qc1 d3 17. e3 e4 18. Nd2 f5 19. O-O Re8>
Iím just a poor boy, <20. f3> i need no sympathy- <20...Nd4 21. exd4 Qxd4+ 22. Kh1 e3 23. Nc3 Bf6 24. Ndb1 d2 25. Qc2 Bb3 26. Qxf5 >
Because Iím easy come, <26...d1=Q> easy go, <27. Nxd1>
A little high <27...Bxd1 28. Nc3> ,little low, <28...e2>
Anyway the wind blows <29. Raxd1> ,doesnít really matter to me,
To me.... <29...Qxc3 0-1>
|Jun-30-04|| ||aqeel: Pearl of hastings is the Steinitz Immortal game !How can we give a link to a game? |
|Jun-30-04|| ||Sneaky: <how can we give a link to a game> Just drop the URL in your message like this: Steinitz vs Von Bardeleben, 1895 The next time you are posting a message click where it says "See our Kibitzing Help page" at the bottom, you can learn all sorts of neat tricks. |
|Jun-30-04|| ||aqeel: Thanks Sneaky..
I will look forward to it!
|Jun-30-04|| ||AliceInWonderland: <Geronimo> Thanks Geronimo. |
|Jun-30-04|| ||themindset: <sneaky> that was quite entertaining. |
|Jun-30-04|| ||tpstar: Beelzebub has a devil put aside for Sneaky - for Sneaky! - for SNEAKY!! |
|Jun-30-04|| ||ajile: I think white's Qside is busted after black plays 7..a5.
The white pawns can't be maintained so all the qside pawn pushes are wasted moves. White's 5.c5 in this type of position is a known terrible move which takes pressure off black's d5 and gives black nice qside targets. |
|Jan-29-05|| ||aw1988: I'll be glad when you're dead, you rascal you. I'll be glad when you're dead, you rascal you. I'll be glad when you're dead, you rascal you. |
|Jan-29-05|| ||aw1988: Sorry, couldn't resist. |
|Aug-29-05|| ||Corwin: hey, what about 13. c6 ? it hammers black's queenside as far as i can see.|
|Mar-29-06|| ||notyetagm: Tremendous central pawn roller by Steinitz.
|Sep-25-06|| ||aragorn69: Fischer's TV commentary is astoundingly superficial. Having said that 9.-d4 is "the winning move", he doesn't even mention the obvious possibility of 13.c6, trapping the knight... |
|Sep-25-06|| ||keypusher: <aragorn69> Hey, good point. What about 13. c6 Nxc6 14. bxc6 Rb8 15. Rb1 Bxa3 threatening ...Bb4+. Does that work?|
|Mar-13-07|| ||Emma: A great game from a great player
|Apr-08-07|| ||Whack8888: I used to play c5 regularly, as I thought it was the minority attack! It is interesting how throughout this match anytime Zukertort advanced his pawns early like this, Steinitz eventually won the game with his own advanced pawns|
|Sep-09-07|| ||ounos: What is the best way to keep the advantage after 12. e3 ?|
|Feb-26-08|| ||Knight13: <6. c5: White plays a mistake already; he should just play e3, naturally.--Fischer> Pretty much in every game Zukertort played c5 in this kind of position. More like 8. dxc5 is the "real" mistake.|
|Jul-22-08|| ||Lutwidge: I doubt 13. c6 works all that well for White, though surely it can't be worse than the game continuation. A possible way the game might have unfolded could I suppose have been:|
13. c6 Bc4
14. Qb1 Qd5
15. e4 dxe3
16. fxe3 Bxf1
17. Rxf1 Bc5!?
18. Nxc5 Qxc5
19. Kf2 a4
20. Qb2 Ra5
21. Rab1 Rd8
and black plans Rd5, finally winning the b5 pawn and freeing his imprisoned Knight.
|Nov-17-08|| ||sirfraix: I see a little silhouetto of a passed pawn!
Scaramouch, scaramouch will you do the promotion!
