|Jul-09-02|| ||refutor: 22.Rxe6+!! impressive move by the child prodigy, yanofsky, representing canada at the olympiad in 1939. alekhine himself was impressed by this game |
|Aug-10-04|| ||Whitehat1963: Remarkable game. |
|Jan-23-05|| ||sleepkid: 22. Rxe6! is an impressive move, especially considering that Yanofsky was only 14 when he made it. However, if you look at the board, it's also the only move that doesn't lose for white. So it makes it a lot easier to play. |
|Jan-23-05|| ||samvega: Except that presumably he already had 22.Re6 in mind when he played Qh8+. |
|Jan-23-05|| ||sleepkid: samvega: naturally. Which is why Qh8+! is probably more deserving of the exclamation mark. Though Rxe6! is the culmination. It's really difficult to decide where to put all this punctuation. $%&("#@>! |
|Nov-11-05|| ||lopium: Ahahazz! sleepkid.
Nice to see a game Canadian VS Peruvian! It reminds of myself. I've played some games in Peru, with a friend.
|Dec-04-05|| ||DeepErrors: I've seen a reference to this game that claims the rook sacrifice is "one of the most studied moves in chess history". Does this seems a bit hyperbolic?!|
|Dec-28-05|| ||notyetagm: 22 ♖xe6+!!, wow.
|Dec-28-05|| ||syracrophy: The young Abe Yanofsky declared that he saw the shock 22.Rxe6+!! when he played 14.Bxf6. The only mistake seen by black, was the dubious 13...b6? that permitted the rest of the combination. It was just to join the ideas together.|
|Apr-25-07|| ||ianD: 22.Rxe6 is not that difficlt to see.|
|Apr-25-07|| ||Pawn and Two: Alekhine's comments at move 22.Rxe6+! are interesting:
<Not complicated of course - but neat and decisive. The whole little game is characteristic for the incisive style of the young Canadian, who was, practically, the only revelation of the Buenos Aires team tournament.>|
|Aug-15-07|| ||fm avari viraf: Had there not been this resourceful combination 22.Rxe6+ it is White who is at the receiving end as Black is threatening mate at g2. But it seems that the child prodigy was knowing this unique combo! Kudos!|
|Jan-15-09|| ||WhiteRook48: This would make a good puzzle, although everyone here now knows the answer.
|Mar-07-10|| ||Chessical: Unfortunately, <17...Rd5> prevents the combination, and limits the damage to a lost pawn. I suspect the game would still have been a win for Yanofsky but with all the beauty buried in the notes.|
|Nov-04-10|| ||sevenseaman: Sublime. If there were no name credits one would think it was Tal playing White.|
I was stuck at 22. Rxe6. Did contemplate it but w/o going all the way.
|Mar-23-13|| ||Abdel Irada: And what, pray tell, does White do on 28. ...Kc1=Q†? ;-)|
|Mar-23-13|| ||karik: <Abdel> Sex change operation is not allowed in chess.|
|Mar-23-13|| ||Abdel Irada: <karik>: Then how do infantrymen become queens?|
|Mar-23-13|| ||master of defence: 22.Rxe6+! is the only move, because if the Q goes off of g-file, then Qxg2#. And if Qxg8, Rxg8.|
