|Feb-09-05|| ||nfazli: Am I missing something or the score is wrong..queen is hanging.. |
|Feb-09-05|| ||notsodeepthought: nfazli> The score is right - black can afford to let the queen hang, since on 14 N:d8 black would play 14 ... Nh3++ followed by 15 ... R:f1 mate. |
|Feb-10-05|| ||nfazli: what about 14.Rxf2? |
|Feb-10-05|| ||beatgiant: <nfazli> 14. Rxf2 Bxf2+ 15. Kxf2 Rxf7+ and Black's a rook ahead. |
|Feb-10-05|| ||nfazli: thank you ..I totally overlooked the bishop |
|Nov-18-05|| ||soberknight: I stopped at the end and wondered, "BLACK wins?? Oh..."|
|Jun-16-06|| ||Benzol: "If you want it, here it is..."|
|Jun-16-06|| ||CapablancaFan: Too all: It looks like the score is wrong right? White should win right? So why does it say 0-1? It's not wrong, actually the score is quite correct.After 14.Qh8+ ...14.Kxf7 and the queen has nothing else to do. On the other hand, the white king is facing a discovered check from 2 points! The bishop on a7 and the rook on f8. The knight on f2 is free to go wherever it wants. For example the continuation could go like this...14.Qh8+...Kxf2 15.(Now remember, the queen on h8 is being attacked by the f8 rook at this point) 15.Qh5+...Ng6 and white has nothing else to do. The discovered check threats are just too powerful.|
|Jun-16-06|| ||chessgames.com: It's entertaining to note that we deleted three "correction notes" on this game telling us to change the score to 1-0.|
|Jun-16-06|| ||chessmoron: I think 11. Nxf7 gives black the automatic win. Maybe 11. Bxe4 might be better for white.|
|Jun-16-06|| ||xenophon: it amazes me that Tenby ever had a tournament that could attract someone like Znosko-Borovsky!Perhaps prize money was better than today and his circumstances a little tight.|
|Jun-16-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: 11...Nxf2!! Znosko-Borovsky kept his cool even though he was under attack. Impressive!|
|Jun-16-06|| ||itz2000: brilliant!
The score is okay!
|Jun-16-06|| ||Marcelo Adaes: isnt ++ still a symbol for mate, not for "double check", or I am wrong?|
|Jun-16-06|| ||acirce: I don't know if that particular symbol is standardized, but it's more often used for double check, isn't it? I just use + for check even if it's double check.|
|Jun-16-06|| ||chessfreako: cg.com seems to be reminding us about being smart alecks today Lol. First Bxh7 in the puzzle and now this Nxf7 in the game of the day.|
Lol WE GET THE HINT.
|Jun-16-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: White cannot even get a perpetual because after 14.Qh8+ Kxf7 15.Qh5+ follows 15...Kg8.|
|Jun-16-06|| ||itz2000: <aricle> <marcos>|
I've just rechecked Alex Yermolinsky "The Road To Chess Improvement" book, there's a symbol page on the first 5 pages of the book.
++ is double check by this page.
|Jun-16-06|| ||kevin86: What a brilliant finish!! It looks like white is about to gain a queen-but in reality,he is lost! The capture at d8 allows a very long double check followed by the rook whizzing down to capture white's poor,unprotected rook to declare MATE!
A queen falls,but is avenged by knight,bishop,and rook-the three lesser pieces to her.|
|Jun-16-06|| ||CapablancaFan: Let this game be a lesson: Before you launch a sacraficial attack on one's castled king, you better check the lines and all variations to insure that it is sound. What makes this game so funny is that white's attack at first seemed so promising and then on move 14 the game comes to a sudden and abrupt end...white realized he had nothing!|
|Jun-16-06|| ||dakgootje: funny how many people thought it the score was wrong, though if i would have been in the place of one of the first posters probably i would've thought about the same|
|Jun-16-06|| ||tacite: I am maybe dead wrong, but I think the position is not so desperate for white. If 14.Nh6+ g7x6 15.Qe2 Nh3+ 16.Kh1 white can hold on and maybe counter-attack.|
|Jun-16-06|| ||CapablancaFan: <tacite> Dosen't white go down a piece in the line you just gave?|
|Jun-16-06|| ||tacite: <CapablancaFan:> Yes, you are right. I took for granted that after 16. Kh1 the continuation would be 16...Rxf1+ 17.Qxf1, giving a chance for white to play something "decent" even with a piece down.|
|Jun-16-06|| ||CapablancaFan: <tacite> Ok, let's see, according to your line in order for white to maybe even have a chance for survival he has to throw away his knight, allow a deadly diagnol be opened against his king,allow the f-file highway to be opened up, and maybe then, just maybe the great GM Znosko-Borovsky will somehow make an ill-timed move that will allow white to equalize. Uh-hm...oookkkk.|
