|Jan-20-06|| ||schnarre: Are we sure Rick Morannis wasn't playing White here, considering the day's pun!?|
|Jan-20-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: ok you nitpick <dakgootje> 22.Qh8# ;)|
|Jan-20-06|| ||ThaDoctor: There is just one thing i don´t understand about this game, how do white win with f2-f3, he delay development, and weakening the king site ? (or am i not into this opening ?), just that i don´t understand anything with that opening...|
|Jan-20-06|| ||Ludamad: <ReikiMaster> I believe KID stands for Kings Indian Defence, not, as you say, Kings InDian|
|Jan-20-06|| ||Kwesi: Yes, as opposed to the King's Indian Attack (A07), opening of the day today.|
|Jan-20-06|| ||Ludamad: It seems no matter what I play as black its always a defense ;)|
|Jan-20-06|| ||chessic eric: <ThaDoctor> f2-3 is standard opening theory for the King's Indian Saemisch these days, although in 1949 this was far from the case. There is often opposite-side castling in the KID Saemisch, and f3 supports both white's e4 pawn and an early g4, accelerating the attack on the classic weakness in black's pawn structure - the g6 pawn.|
|Jan-20-06|| ||Calli: Wife: "How did you do today?"
Eugene Aleksandrovich "Honey, I stunk up a KID"
Wife "errrr, you what?"
|Feb-13-06|| ||schnarre: <Calli> Good one!|
|May-03-09|| ||RandomVisitor: 9...Ne5 might be better.
|May-03-09|| ||patzer2: Looks like the pun and GOD contest is producing better puns. The game is not bad either. The move 19. Ng5! sets up an instructive attack on the helpless Black Kingside castled position. |
Shrunken KID indeed! I wonder if Znosko-Borovsky might have included this game in his Book "The Art of the Combination."
|May-03-09|| ||newzild: In response to those folks below seeking comment from a KID player, I will offer my views on this game from my humble position as a mere 2050 elo player.|
Saemisch Kings Indian theory was in its infancy in 1949. These days, most people don't bother playing 6...Nbd7, preferring the immediate 6...c5 instead. White can win a pawn on c5, but experience shows that black gets full compensation due to better development and a strong Bg7.
These days, black also plays e6 followed by ed quite early. Znosko-Borovsky tried to prepare this with Re8, but his maneouvers were too slow and passive.
Instead of 8...Re8, most modern players would prefer 8...a6, preparing to obtain counterplay with queenside expansion, or 8...Ne5, intending 9...e6 and 10...ed. Of course, the Ne5 is in a precarious position, and there are all sorts of complicated lines in which white tries to exploit this. I could ramble on about these lines all day, but it's probably more fun for you just to check out this classic game:
Beliavsky vs Nunn, 1985
|May-03-09|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: <@<patzer2>: Looks like the pun and GOD contest is producing better puns.> Umm, i don't want to spoil your enthusiasm, but the same pun was already used before - for that same game.|
|May-03-09|| ||RandomVisitor: After the suggested improvement 9...Ne5

|May-03-09|| ||furrer: Good pun!|
|May-03-09|| ||Dillon: I don't get it.. what's the pun with "KID"?|
|May-03-09|| ||Dillon: Oh, nevermind, it just hit me.|
|May-03-09|| ||Lastwarrior: funny title
black defended poorly
|May-03-09|| ||WhiteRook48: no, he Saemiched the KID|
|May-03-09|| ||hedgeh0g: That defense didn't look very "Normal" to me. Why not play 9...e6?|
|May-03-09|| ||AnalyzeThis: If white captures, there's a question as to how long the d pawn on the open file survives.|
|May-03-09|| ||AnalyzeThis: The thing about this game is, I'm pretty sure that Bobby Fischer could have rattled off the moves of white's attack in a 1 minute game, without taking up half the time. He was famous for those h file attacks.|
|May-03-09|| ||just a kid: Hey!I find this pun offensive!=)|
|May-04-09|| ||kevin86: Does the player of the black pieces have the longest name in chess? I would guess so.|
White dominated on the king side-in spades.
|May-06-09|| ||Dmaster995: Wow what a crush!|
