|Dec-06-05|| ||who: <ajile> if 36.Ke2 then 36...Nc4 where it's not as clear how to trade off rooks, and with rooks on the board this is presumably a draw.|
|Dec-06-05|| ||kevin86: A crying shame! White has the advantage,but cannot win because he advanced his d pawn too fast.|
|Dec-06-05|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: <psmith> I think <zhentil> is suggesting 28.Bxc7 would have been better. He could very well be right.|
<zhentil> Could you elaborate please? Thank you.
|Dec-06-05|| ||chesscrazy: Why did Duchamp move his bishop so nothing would be protecting the c-pawn (36.Bb4)? That's the main move I don't get.|
|Dec-06-05|| ||chesscrazy: If black played Nb7 trying to chase the bishop waway hite could just move it to b6.|
|Dec-06-05|| ||chesscrazy: waway is supposed to by "away" sorry|
|Dec-06-05|| ||who: if you're already correcting yout post - what's hite?|
|Dec-06-05|| ||chesscrazy: <who> I think I meant to type "he". Sorry about that.|
|Dec-06-05|| ||chessic eric: <<EmperorAtahualpa> I think <zhentil> is suggesting 28.Bxc7 would have been better>|
28.Bxc7 wins a pawn, but allows black's lone trump - the passed a-pawn - much needed mobility after 28...,Bxc7 29.Rxc7, Nd5 30.Rb7,a5 and so on. That is a much more complicated game than it has to be for white. <al wazir's> suggestion of 28.Rb8! is much more forcing, accomplishing the rook trade and eliminating the potential problems with the a pawn.
|Dec-06-05|| ||majick: Funny how there are almost as many comments on the pun as on the game itself - speaks for cg.com's creativity!|
|Dec-06-05|| ||Guest1825: <majick> ok, this is only funny if you know the book, but how about, "How Not to Draw Artists" as a pun?|
And is, "The Art of Making Draw" too obscure?
|Dec-06-05|| ||Bobwhoosta: A game wherein a mechanical win is presented while the player manages to follow the three laws:|
1. A player will not harm an opposing piece, or through inaction allow an opposing piece to come to harm.
2. A player will follow the directives of the other player, unless this breaks the first law.
3. A player must not allow harm to come to himself, unless this breaks the first or second law.
The game name? "I Robotvinnik".
(btw, in the end position the king is not in "harm", he just can't avoid it the next turn).
Another one, in which a amazingly talented player suddenly turns into a patzer and is beaten soundly in 23 moves by a class C player. "Moronzevich".
And the third, in which a short fellow with furry feet who likes to eat several times more per day than is probably good for him travels through peril with many friends to battle the Dark Lord in a game of chess for the fate of Middle Earth.
"Lord of the Kings"
Last but not least I'd like to add that I wanted no sting on Morezevich, which is why I started off game two with the fully deserved compliment.
|Dec-06-05|| ||vinohradska: I was wondering why 21... Be4? For instance 21... Bxf3 would break the pawn structure. Was black hoping to trade to get rid of white's two-bishop strength?|
|Dec-06-05|| ||al wazir: <vinohradska: I was wondering why 21... Be4? For instance 21... Bxf3 would break the pawn structure. Was black hoping to trade to get rid of white's two-bishop strength?>|
The knight on e4 is well positioned. Maybe that was the reason. What I wonder is, having exchanged bishops, why didn't black play 23...Bxc5 ? If 24. dxc5, then 24...Nxc5, forking the rooks. If 24. Bxc7, then 24...Bd6 25. Rc4 (25. Bxd6 Rc1+, winning; 25. Ba5 Rc1+ 26. Ne1, and I think black has the better game) Bxc7 26. Rxc7 Rxc7 27. Rxc7 Ra8, and with the passed pawn I think black has all the winning chances.
|Dec-06-05|| ||PaulLovric: they are doing it on purpose, the gotd is late, i have to log off now.|
|Dec-07-05|| ||tpstar: <PaulLovric> The USA had Daylight Savings Time 6 weeks ago. It is almost midnight right now. In a few minutes, there will be a new GOTD for 12/7.|
|Dec-07-05|| ||PaulLovric: cheers <tpstar> i did not know that|
|Dec-07-05|| ||vinohradska: <al wazir> yes, 23...Bxc5 is a clever move, I like it. But what about 24. Rxc7?|
|Dec-07-05|| ||PaulLovric: <tpstar> in australia we have daylight savings during the summer months. what are the reasons for america having it during winter???|
|Apr-17-17|| ||ColeTrane: L.H.O.Q.|
|Apr-17-17|| ||offramp: The previous cg.com title for this game was <The Artist's Drawing>, which was a double entendre. The new title is a single entendre, a reference to the canvas that painters use. TBH, I can only think of a few canvas paintings by Duchamp. His most famous painting is on glass. Most of his art is a load rubbish thrown together, a bit like this game.|
|Apr-17-17|| ||Swedish Logician: Surely Duchamp's most famous chess feat must be this:
|Apr-17-17|| ||morfishine: April Fools was two weeks ago|
|Apr-17-17|| ||RookFile: Duchamp rushed this. He had a win but needed to take his time about it.|
|Apr-17-17|| ||RandomVisitor: After 29...Ra8 maybe white should push the c-pawn:|
