|Nov-27-09|| ||sarah wayne: Hitler and Fischer were contemporaries.|
|Nov-27-09|| ||hedgeh0g: The only set resembling a practical set is the first one (Wiggly). I'm not a fan of sets which are so over-the-top or simple that the pieces are either unrecognisable or indistinguishable.|
|Nov-27-09|| ||dzechiel: Sensational play by Seirawan. Most impressive.|
|Nov-27-09|| ||ounos: Wow, the play a bit out of the opening revolves around patterns of Morphy's opera game. Amazing, given the actual openings were completely different.|
|Nov-27-09|| ||hedgeh0g: <dzechiel> Is this your first non-Puzzle of the Day post?|
If so, congratulations! :P
|Nov-27-09|| ||Everett: <Sarah Wayne>
yes and no. The Furher's soul may have drifted into Fischer's body at age 3, and it took him until Fischer left chess to take noticable control.
Seirawan, however, is a nice guy who played a crushing game vs. Timman here, lest we forget.
|Nov-27-09|| ||sarah wayne: Comparing Hitler to Fischer seems disrespectful to Hitler-I mean Fischer.Comparisons to Morphy are obvious.|
|Nov-28-09|| ||Everett: Agreed.
It's important to note: Bringing up Fischer on this page is disrespectful to Seirawan's brilliance in this game. Please praise other players on their respective sites.
|Nov-28-09|| ||Once: <Everett> There are a few things in life that are inevitable. As well as death and taxes, we can add hyperbole about Morphy and Fischer, unfair criticism of just about anyone else and the occasional troll poking fun at both points of view.|
And I have long since given up worrying about any of it.
|Nov-28-09|| ||Everett: <once> You are way ahead of me. Perhaps I will learn to not worry about it soon. Thanks for the reminder.|
|Nov-28-09|| ||Once: <Everett> No worries!|
|Dec-02-09|| ||kevin86: A fork married to a back row mate! Black is lost!!|
|Jan-18-10|| ||Ulhumbrus: The move 9...exd5 opens the diagonal f1-a6 for White's KB by inducing the recapture 10 cxd5. An alternative is 9...Ne5 making use of the fact that White hasn't removed Black's KB yet. On 9...Ne5 10 Qxc3 Ng6 and if White has the better of it, Black may have a better chance to avoid losing the game.|
|Feb-17-11|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: Trės jolie !!|
|Feb-17-11|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: I recall Morphy with 0-0-0 and Txd7!!|
|May-19-12|| ||zakkzheng: a big bomb placed in blacks territory with Qxd6. (Followup would be Rxd6 h6 Rd8+ Qxd8 Nxd8 with a extra night and a crushing lead in material wise as to Grandmasters|
|Sep-09-13|| ||jaseemalikt: Seirawan explains this game
|Dec-07-13|| ||dale2222222: 23. Rxd6 looks simpler to me|
|Sep-30-15|| ||The Kings Domain: Fine positional play by Seirawan. His castling in the jaws of danger had me nervous for a moment there.|
|Sep-30-15|| ||thegoodanarchist: <<Once>: ...
And I have long since given up worrying about any of it.>|
Oh, so you're a quitter, huh??
|Sep-30-15|| ||Sally Simpson: Nice piece of chess by Yasser Seirawan and yes if Morphy was dropped into the pack these days this is the type of game he would reproduce, Yasser was right to make the comparison.|
One wee query. This game.
Seirawan vs Timman, 1990
Which on here is given before the current game. Both reached here.
click for larger view
In the linked game Timman played 7...h6 in the thread game Timman played 7...Nc6.
I know the games on here do not always follow the order of exactly when the game played. (both 1990).
Which game was first, this one or the linked one.
|Dec-15-16|| ||razetime: A clean win, and Seirwan is left with a full knight up after
26..Rxd6 17.Rxd6 Kg8 18.Rd8+
And Black is a knight down.
|Feb-08-17|| ||Ziryab: @SallySimpson
Timman playd 7.h6 in game three of the match. He lost that game also. The present game was game five.
|Jul-29-17|| ||Toribio3: Impressive play by super grand master Seirawan. He delivered the killer punch in the end.|
|Jul-30-17|| ||andrewjsacks: Very impressive play by Seirawan.|
