|Jul-28-06|| ||Knight13: 22. b4? gets mated: 22...Nb3+ 23. Kb2 Qd2+ 24. Kxb3 Qc2#; 22. e4? Bxe4 23. Bc4 is not an improvement for White: 23...Qc5 24. Nc3 (24. Ne3 Nb3+ 25. Kd1 Qd4+ mates) 24...Qxc4 25. Qd8 Nb3+ 26. Kd1 Nd4 gives Black descisive threats. 22. Bc4 Qc6 wins the bishop, while keeping an attack: 23. Nc3 Qxc4 24. Qd8 (Other wise 24...Nb3+ 25. Kd1 Qd3+ is terminal) ...Nb3+ 25. Kd1 Qg4+ and now 26. f3? Qxg2 wins: 26. Ne2 Qxg2 27. Rg1 Qe4 28. Ke1 Qb1+ 29. Qd1 Qxb2 and White is fast running out of pawns, while his king is still exposed. 26. Ke1 Qxg2 27. Rf1 Bh3 28. Qd3+ allows White to limp on. --- Tactics and Strategy by G. Burgess|

|Sep-03-07|| ||efrain chavez: Although it "looks" like an instant one move "finding" for black. It is on move 19... Bf5! where black has to "see" that 22 Qxb7 does not work (otherwise the rook sacrifice would make no sense!), find the stronger white line, maybe 22 Bc4 as many of you pointed out, and decide if it is good enough or not. Fortunately for all of us, Planic went for it and white overlooked the very fine black 22... Qc7+!!!!|
|Jan-01-08|| ||Buddy Revell: And White Rook, Bishop and Knight were all sleeping on the back rank... =P|
|Jul-03-08|| ||rodrigochaves: I remember to see this game for the first time in a book that learn attack setups, but i don't remember the name. Does anyone knows wich book is? I think the name of the autor is Raymond Edwards.|
|Aug-02-08|| ||MrSpock: I first have seen this game in the famous German book: Schach, Spiel, Sport, Wissenschaft, Kunst, GM Helmut Pfleger, Hoffmann und Campe, 1984|
|Aug-22-08|| ||arsen387: 23.Qxc7 Nb3# most beuatiful mate ever. I am more used to see Vaganian on the winning side of such attacking brilliances, but this time he was clearly overplayed by Planinc. Cheers to Planinc! Amazing game|
|Dec-26-08|| ||Phony Benoni: 22...Qc7+ simply blew me away the first time I saw it, and I'm sure it has the same effect on most people. It's the sort of move you dream about playing just once in a lifetime.|
|Dec-26-08|| ||Travis Bickle: I agree Phony! Awesome ending!!|
|Dec-26-08|| ||luzhin: I wonder if Planinc thought for a second or two choosing between 22...Qc7+ and 22...Qc6+. To those used to composed chess problems, the fact that there is a 'dual' solution is rather a shame.|
|Dec-26-08|| ||whiteshark: That's so true, <Phony Benoni>!!!|
I find the pawn sacrifice in the middlegame very interesting. Just for better development and piece activity against a King stucked in the center.
There is a fine corr. game with some similarities: A Khasin vs J Sloth, 1975
|Dec-26-08|| ||Chessmensch: For any who hadn't picked up on it, Planinc died a few days ago.|
|Dec-26-08|| ||Nikita Smirnov: Qc7!!!
|Dec-27-08|| ||WhiteRook48: these puns are SO hilarious.|
|Feb-07-09|| ||whiteshark: <Buddy Revell> Yes, something went wrong if White's f1+h1 still stood unmoved on their initial squares when he is resigning.|
|Apr-18-09|| ||Extremophile: beautiful!|
|Apr-18-09|| ||computer chess guy: 22. c4 was White's only chance and may enable survival, although White would have to play very accurately. Rybka is still saying = as the end of the line given by Burgess.|
|Oct-25-10|| ||perfidious: This combination greatly impressed me when the game was published in Chess Life and Review.|
|Oct-31-10|| ||sevenseaman: Sublime! But for the White Q's interference the Black N and B combo are on the verge of a mate. Hence the ... 22. Qc7+, a forcing move.|
|Feb-01-11|| ||Marmot PFL: At first I though Qc7+ was a typo.|
|Feb-02-11|| ||sevenseaman: <Marmot PFL: At first I though Qc7+ was a typo.> Typo! Ha ha. A nice way to put it. It looks exactly that. A subtly polite way of asking the enemy Q 'Why don't you move into my chair, I'm leaving.'|
|Feb-02-11|| ||shadowleaf04: This game is a spectacular demonstration of how a lead in development can lead to a devastating mating attack. Planinc's 16..Nd4! started it all. 21...Na1! was an impressive prelude to 22...Qc7+!!|
|Jul-07-11|| ||MrYman: After 22. Bc4! (instead of Qxb7??) this game is a draw. |
So says computer analysis playing to 22 plydepth till the end of the game (22 plydepth means 11 full moves ahead).
|Jul-07-11|| ||FSR: Good to know. I always wondered what happened if White doesn't fall for 22.Qxb7?? As Larry Evans once said, you can't swash if your opponent doesn't buckle.|
|Dec-29-12|| ||12.12.12: wow. mate by knight and bishop on an open board. just wow.|
