|Feb-12-04|| ||Suenteus Po: Ouch. 35...Ka6 and 36.Nb4+ loses the game winning pawn for black. That's got to hurt. |
|Feb-12-04|| ||Sneaky: This is one crazy varation. 10.f3 looks very strong, but it has been analyzed to a draw, see Euwe vs Alekhine, 1936 |
|Feb-12-04|| ||kevin86: What kind of gambit is 8...xe4 ? I have never seen it before. It looks effective as black gains 3 pawns for the piece and exposes white's king. It does look reckless,however.|
The closing combination is fine indeed,as white nets black's impudent pawn at the pass.
|Feb-12-04|| ||refutor: <kevin86>...it's quite a popular line actually Shirov vs Bareev, 1991
Kramnik vs Lautier, 1993
Kramnik vs Ivanchuk, 1994
Karpov vs Hjartarson, 1988
Shirov vs Hector, 1991
i could go on and on...the site stops showing "games like this" at move 16 for this line
|Feb-12-04|| ||catfriend: Why doesn't black exchange queens most of the game? |
|Oct-28-04|| ||Ernesto7: black is down a piece .... he needs his queen |
|Nov-07-05|| ||The Backward Pawn: apparently it hasn't worked out too well for black, at least in these games.|
|Nov-07-05|| ||blackjacki2: Did black lose the game because he went for the win instead of the draw?|
|May-15-07|| ||iccsumant: What if black hadn't taken the pawn on a4 on move 27? He simply takes the bishop and I think black is winning|
|May-15-07|| ||erasmusdurer: A very nice game. To paraphrase Steinitz, sometimes your king likes to take a walk. I don't think I would have the nerve to do this in a tournament game, however.|
|May-15-07|| ||TheHurricane3: Loek missed mate in four and Javier missed a draw. 33... Nb4+! draws. And Nxe6! is mate in three. 33. Nxe6! Kb7 only move 34. Nc5+ Kb6 35. Rb8+ Ka5 and next move is mate Pc4|
|May-15-07|| ||achieve: <TheHurricane3> 33. Nxe6?? There is a fork on f5|
Loek's line was good I think.
|May-15-07|| ||kevin86: A very fun game to play! Black offers a piece early,then comes close to promoting to a queen later,but the king could not live through his troubles-or rather the poor pawn doesn't.|
|May-15-07|| ||Kruglov: <achieve>: Certainly, <TheHurricane3>'s line starts on move 34, so Nxe6+ is a discovered check, and 36.Rb8+ is possible.|

You're right <Kruglov> Nice finish by pawn b4 there.
I didn't look behind my nose's length I guess..
Thanks for clearing that up!
|May-15-07|| ||backyard pawn: Whew! <TheHurricane3> you are clever to have found that forced mate.|
