|Feb-10-05|| ||Whitehat1963: Player of the day receives a clever beating. |
|May-04-07|| ||sandmanbrig: Wow!! Truly amazing queen sack|
|May-04-07|| ||Bingat29: Using two knights to attack is mind boggling, in the same way as defending against it. I think the human brain functions better in calculating in straight lines.|
|May-04-07|| ||alshatranji: What a beautiful attack. The queen sacrifice is one of the most surprising I have ever seen. It sends a shiver down your spine.|
|May-04-07|| ||al wazir: White lost a tempo by not playing 26. c3 right away.|
|May-04-07|| ||Sularus: Nice dance =)|
|May-04-07|| ||kellmano: Cracking game. I for one was amazed to see the black queen capture on move 31.|
|May-04-07|| ||gBizzle: hehe, i love knight rampages. one time when i played my dad i captured 19 points worth of material with 1 knight|
|May-04-07|| ||Marmot PFL: Nice knight moves Walter! Remember Browne was US champ many times before all the Russians moved in and he decided poker was more profitable.|
|May-04-07|| ||OLTI27: Very nice sac, but on move 33 instead of capturing the rock white could have play 33 Rd2 leading to a better game for white.|
|May-04-07|| ||Silverstrike: <OLTI27> 33.Rd2 h4 and if the knight moves then black plays 34...Rxg1+ 35.Kxg1 Re1#|
|May-04-07|| ||kevin86: Mr. Brown turned in a stellar game! It was surprizuing how he was able to hold his pieces together and pick up a few pawns along the way. The book says that two knights and a rook are superior to a queen,but it definitely not easy to force a win with them.|
It looked for a while that we would see a smothered mate or some variation of one.
|May-04-07|| ||psmith: <Silverstrike> 33. Rd2 h4 34. Qxh4 and then?|
|May-04-07|| ||fndmylove: Wow! That's all I have to say.|
|May-04-07|| ||solstys: Very entertaining game though it seems like OLTI27's suggestion of 33. Rd2 wins for white.|
|May-04-07|| ||Duque Roquero: Beautiful game of the day. 31… Qxd1!! is a huge move.
Close to my favorite queen sac:
Carlos Torre vs N Banks, 1924
|May-04-07|| ||AlfieNoakes: I wondered if he had seen something mating with the queen sac, the threats were certainly there, but he instead got one of those pieces vs queen games where the queen just looks impotent. Fantastic game.|
|May-05-07|| ||fm avari viraf: A very speculative Queen sacrifice by Browne who pins his hopes on the back rank combination. But had White played 33.Rd2 parrying the major threat of Nf2+ Browne would be struggling to save his game.|
|May-07-07|| ||Silverstrike: <psmith> You're right, sorry about that.|
|Jan-17-09|| ||MarbleSkull: 33. Rd2 can be answered by Nd5
if 34.Nxh5, 34.Rxg1+ 35.Kxg1 Re1 mate
if 34.Qxh5, 34. Rxg1+ 35.Kxg1 Re1+ 36.Nf1 Nde3 and white has the opportunity to sac a queen to be up two pawns or interpose the rook for more complexity. I dunno, I'm not that high of rating, but it seems like black still has plenty of attacking opportunities, perhaps they saw something we didn't?
|Jun-11-10|| ||elohah: Wow!! That is a really GREAT game by Walter Browne! Boy, if we could play like this kids...|
Yeah, maybe on 33 Rd2, how about just something like 33...Rb1. Not much to prevent both Black rooks hitting the 8th then. Certainly not 34 Re2? Rxe2 35 Nxe2 Nf2 MATE!
|Jun-11-10|| ||elohah: And of course, if 34 Nxh5 (after 33...Rb1) there's 34...Rxg1+!|
|Oct-28-12|| ||FSR: The identical pun was used seven months before for Browne vs Bisguier, 1974.|
|Mar-29-14|| ||kamikazzi: funny enough my computer program Houdini rated the Queen sac as 31....Qxd1??. It suggested 32. Rxd1 Re1 33.Rd2 Ra1 34. Qh4 . It actually preferred 31...Rf4!=|
