|Mar-05-03|| ||refutor: does anyone have any ideas about that queen sac by reshevsky? he can't get enough for it |
|Mar-05-03|| ||drukenknight: Hmm, its a complicated/confusing game lots of ways it can go. |
white might have tried 19 h4 It makes sense to attack the K if white is behind in material, Sammy pushed the a-pawn first, hoping to make it up on the q side pawns first.
better for black might be: 22...Qxd3+ and blacks Rooks blast the K in the open field.
by the time we get to the queen sack, the game looks really even, I think it looks like a good choice. so maybe white messed up later than this.
24....Rd8 may be better.
|Mar-06-03|| ||ughaibu: White got more than enough pieces for the queen, it looks like he blundered in time trouble, Reshevsky was a time trouble addict. |
|Mar-06-03|| ||drukenknight: I didn't know that. I wonder if tripled pawns are a Reshevsky trademark too? |
|Mar-06-03|| ||mdorothy: As far as the queen sac, my question is what other options does he have? Most everything I can come up with fails to black's incredibly strong queenside attack. |
|Mar-30-04|| ||ruylopez900: I guess it doesn't matter whether Reshevsky's queen sac was sound...he played it against a Canadian so he was obviously doomed! (or not) =D |
|Mar-30-04|| ||TrueFiendish: How sad the white bishop looks! Humiliated. |
|Mar-31-04|| ||ruylopez900: Good Point, <Fiendish>, Reshevsky wasn't really Two minor pieces and a Rook up for a Queen (11pts v. 9 pts) because the Bishop was locked up in the corner by his own pawns. |
|Nov-09-08|| ||PeterB: A really great game by Yanofsky, who got his GM title at this Olympiad! Excellent positional understanding.|
|Mar-17-15|| ||jpolchinski: I don't see how B makes progress in the end after 40 Nxb4 Qxb3+ 41 Ke2 Qxb4 42 Kf1|
|Mar-17-15|| ||Aiuta: maybe after 40 Nxb4 Qe1 and nursing the h pawn.|
|Mar-17-15|| ||RookFile: That bishop on h2 is about as ugly as it gets for white.|
