|Jun-19-05|| ||offramp: By whom are the notes?|
|Jun-19-05|| ||Hesam7: My line was:
19...Bxe3 20 fxe3 Qxe3+ 21 Kg2 Qh6 22 Kg1 Be2
I simply did not consider the simple 20 Bxg4. It is the second Sunday in a row that I did not make it. :(
|Jun-19-05|| ||crafty: 19...xe3 20. xg4 xg4 21. fxe3 xe3 22. e1 ce8 23. xe3 (eval 1.50; depth 16 ply; 500M nodes)|
|Jun-19-05|| ||DWINS: Nice combination, but Taimanov missed an absolute killer when he exchanged queens by 27...Qxd2. He should have played 27...Bc7+ which is a mate in 9 according to Junior. Even if didn't see that it is a forced mate, he should have seen that it wins White's queen by forcing either the queen or rook to interpose on f4 because 28.Kh3 loses immediately to 28...Qg3#|
|Jun-19-05|| ||PARACONT1: Deja-vu for me. I was just playing thru Bryne-Fischer, US Ch. 1963 and realized that some of the motifs behind this combination and that game were quite similar.|
|Jun-19-05|| ||Elrathia Kingi: Is 24...Re2 more effective in ending the game? It looks good to me, but I'm rather rusty.|
|Jun-19-05|| ||jahhaj: Easy, but of course I didn't see the whole combination. For me the key was that against the obvious sacrifices White's always has a hidey hole on g2. That's when xf2 and h3 occured to me.|
I didn't analyse much from the resulting position, I certainly didn't consider 21. d4 but the position after 20... h3 is just one of those positions where I've learned that my judgement is more accurate than my attempts at precise analysis.
|Jun-19-05|| ||halcyonteam: easy, not difficult. But i cannot see the end game position to develop to a queen promotion..!!|
|Jun-19-05|| ||cheski: Was this a blitz game?
This was all just based on an error from White: 19.Bh3, which would have pinned the black Knight to the Queen. rather than 19.Bf3
|Jun-19-05|| ||tbirdas: Fritz 8 gives 13...Bxf2+! 14.Kxf2 Ng4+ 15.Kg1 Qb6+ 16.e3 Rxe3 17.Ne2 (everything else is mate)Rd3+ 18.Bd4 Rxd1 19.Bxb6 Rxa1 20.Rxa1 axb6 (-3.53)
Looks like the take on f2 was there even earlier!|
|Jun-19-05|| ||nasmichael: Does anyone know of positions similar in their game explorations to this one with K + 2B + 2P vs K + 2b + 4P as it stands after 32.a4?|
|Jun-19-05|| ||Mitch Mitchell: I had it all figured out until the second move of the combination....I thought Q x P + and breaking up the king side was good enough to win.|
Taimonov is probably a better piano player than me, too....
|Jun-19-05|| ||Shams: <cheski> 19.Bh3 Nxe3|
|Jun-19-05|| ||mymt: went for 19. ...Nxe3 with the idea 20.fxe3 Qxf3+ 21.Qf2 Qxf3 or 20.Re1 Nxc2 21.Rxe6 Nxa1 22.Rxe8+ Rxe8 23.Bxa1 Re1+ & ...Rxa1.Completely missed the idea ...Qh3 & couldnt see anything in the ...Nxf2 besides 20....Qxe3+|
|Jun-19-05|| ||TheSlid: I've always felt a bit sorry for F Zita. I wonder if he ever felt like just changing his name to F Zita-Bronstein.|
|Jun-19-05|| ||chessgames.com: <nasmichael: Does anyone know of positions similar in their game explorations to this one with K + 2B + 2P vs K + 2b + 4P as it stands after 32.a4?> Ending: BBPPvBBPPPP|
|Jun-19-05|| ||ajile: 41.Be1 Ba7 42.Bf2 Bb8 is interesting because Black can't just exchange bishops because of White's advanced a pawn. So after 43.a7(Bg3 f4)Bxa7 44.BxB does Black have a winning endgame?|
|Jun-19-05|| ||black knight c6: What about xe3 fxe3 xe3? forking, winning a pawn, and smashing whites position. Dont know why anyone hasnt mentioned it, but the king is exposed, whites lost a rook to defend the e-file which black can probably use together with his bishop to kill.
Its a much safer alternative to me, rather than going into a shoddy endgame. (and miss 27c7+)|
|Jun-19-05|| ||dac1990: 19. ...Bxe3 just loses a piece for two pawns after 20.Bxg4 Qxg4 21.fxe3 Rxe3.|
|Jun-19-05|| ||RookFile: I actually like the way White started
this opening. Essentially what he was doing was playing the Gruenfeld defense with the colors reversed and
an extra tempo.
Then, I'm not sure of white's opening
moves, but with the Gruenfeld move
14. e3 he should be fine.
Finally, ...Nxf2 pops into your head
in about 2 seconds, but ...Qh3 is
by no means the obvious follow up!
|Jun-20-05|| ||kevin86: I missed that one-I saw the bishop sac at e3|
|Jun-23-05|| ||patzer2: Black's 19...Nxf2! initiates a decisive demolition of pawn structure combination.|
|Apr-21-08|| ||devioustalfan: Black's doubled pawns after move 7. are strong. 8.Nxd4 is an error as 8...Nxd4 9.Qxd4 leaves the queen hanging and literally begging to be attacked.
after blacks ninth move white seems to have the edge |

nd after move 11 black's power is threatening to disolve.
black's 13th move gives him pwerful horowitz bishops, good enough to oppose the fianchettoed ones?
by move 16. there's been enough piece shuffling to irritate a normal player. does it have merit?
17...Qe6!! is beautiful capitalization on the weak f2 square.
20.Kxf2?! is very interesting why not 20.Qxf2 and prevent 20...Qxe3+!! and the undesireable effect of a caged king.
click for larger view
the real 20...Qh3 is no less disturbing though. and 21.Rd4 is one of the strangest sacs i've ever seen.
22...Rxe3?? is an outright blunder but white(luckily) doesn't take it. 23...Qxg3+!!is deadly e'n though the rook is under attack
26...cxd6! threatens the queen and mate 27.Qd3 is better then 27.Qd2? but white desperately needed the black queen gone.
28...d4 is a good tactical maneuver, later pinning bishop against rook which cannot be left undefended.
30...Rxd2 is better than 30...Bxe3 because of 31.Rxd8#.
i'm sure all readers understand what the last 10 moves are, pawn promotion race and resignation.
|May-20-08|| ||euripides: 10.Bg5 would give a position from the main line of the Tarrasch defence to the Queen's Gambit, usually considered quite good for White.|
<devious> I don't see how Black can exploit the position of the White queen after <8...Nxd4 9.Qxd4>.
|May-20-08|| ||euripides: <devious> have a look at the annotation on the 20th move.|
