|Feb-20-06|| ||vizir: 22..gxf5
Can someone tell me what would happen ?
|Feb-20-06|| ||aerohacedor: Great finish.|
|Feb-20-06|| ||kevin86: This one was child's play-without Chucky,that is-Black's rook is called away from guard duty to capture white's rook. The knight then mates.|
|Feb-20-06|| ||kevin86: Penrose must have felt a little drained after this one. lol|
|Feb-20-06|| ||Jim Bartle: Isn't this the Worrall variation that Short used against Karpov in their '92 match?|
|Feb-20-06|| ||RookFile: I think vizir has a great question.
I cannot find a way to bridge black's
22....gxf5 23. gxf5 Bf8 24. Nh4 Be8
with the idea of ...Ra7.
|Feb-20-06|| ||McCool: Great Game? Nah I think black just screwed up and should have taken the Knight exchange, it woud have evened out in the long run because black was up a pawn already.|
|Feb-20-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: Happy Monday, folks. :)|
|Feb-20-06|| ||Fezzik: I wonder if this week's theme will be Knights, rather than overloads or smothered attacks.|
Jonathan Penrose is famous for two chess accomplishments: a) he was a great correspondence player (I'm not sure if he was the first British correspondence GM) and b) he was the only player to defeat Mikhail Tal *while Tal was World Champion*. He beat Tal by playing an attacking line against the Modern Benoni that is still known as the Penrose Attack.
Arthur Bisguier's victory, as others noticed, wasn't one for the ages. However, Bisguier did finish it up nicely.
|Feb-20-06|| ||Fezzik: PS: I think the variation is known as the "Worral Attack" (5.Qe2) rather than the "Wormald Attack"|
|Feb-20-06|| ||dakgootje: < 22..gxf5 Can someone tell me what would happen ? >Yes of course i can: black would win =)|
|Feb-20-06|| ||RookFile: Well, it's just so humorous, Bisquier drops a knight down where it can be taken, and virtually every player here ignored the possibility, as did Penrose, apparently. We hear references to the Benoni jump, and such, but at the end of the day, when you analyze this thing, it's white who is fighting for the draw, not black.|
I really appreciate what Lasker said about forgetting most of what he read. Lasker came to the board with strong calculation skills, and no preconceived notions. I feel certain Emanuel Lasker would have played 22... gxf5 and said: "Show me what you've got, Bisquier."
|Feb-20-06|| ||Fan of Leko: <RookFile> I doubt that in 100 years Bisguier would recapture with the g pawn. Take with the e pawn and use kingside pawn roller backed up by rooks and Bc2, I am sure that was white's plan. It would have been interesting to see if it worked.|
|Feb-20-06|| ||Appaz: <patzer2> Thanks for the useful link, and thanks also for an interesting posting. A very nice way to answer what was sure meant to be a sarcastic question.|
|Feb-20-06|| ||netlava: Thinking that today was Sunday, I got my first Monday puzzle wrong.|
|Feb-20-06|| ||snowie1: I didn't know that Chessspeak was so hedged in. We hillbillies know about a fork in the road...then you look for a spoon...and then call for a forklift to clear the intersection.|
|Feb-20-06|| ||RookFile: <Fan of Leko> Meeting 22... gxf5 with your 23. exf5 isn't so good for white: black replies with 23... Qb7.|
Now, you can either start playing defense, a piece down, and try to hold d5, or you can go banzai with the kinside pawn storm.
24. h4 Qxd5 25. g5 Nxf5 and white
24. Rd1 Bf8 25. h4 Re8 with the idea
of ... Re7.
Sooner or later it turns out that attacking a numerically superior force
without a forcing continuation is a bad idea.
|Feb-20-06|| ||numcrun: I solved this in about 2 seconds and I am a 1200 moron.|
|Feb-20-06|| ||dzechiel: Wow, some of these Monday puzzles are easy! It took me longer to determine which side was on the move than to find the solution.|
|Feb-20-06|| ||al wazir: I like black's chances after 28...Bh3. If 29. Qxh5, then 29...Bxg2+ 30. Rxg2 fxe5. If 29. Rg3, then 29...Nf4 30. Qf3 fxe5.|
|Feb-20-06|| ||Nostalgia: hehehe I like Monday puzzles :)|
|Feb-22-06|| ||Richerby: Oi, <TheGoodAnarchist>! I mentioned the knight sac on f5!|
|Feb-22-06|| ||RookFile: Did you mention that it was bad and should lose the game for white?|
|Jul-28-13|| ||JureIvanusic: <RookFile>! It looks like that after 22....gxf5 23. gxf5 Bf8 (which is the best, according to software) and then after 24. Nh4, best reply for black is indeed 24.... Be8, but after 25. Qh5, Re7 is almost forced (25... Ra7 loses to 26. Bxg7+) and white can now play an interesting and dangerous 26. Ng6+!?, which must be captured (because if 26. Kg8? Nxe7+ 27. Qxe7 then Bxg7! with disaster to follow), but must not be captured with the pawn, because of mate in 4 ( 26... hxg6?? 27.Bxg7++ Kxg7 28. Rxg6+ Bxg6 29. Rxg6 Kf7 30. Rg5), so, black's only continuation is to capture the knight with the bishop, and after 26.... Bxg6, 27. Rxg6 (rook is untouchable), black hasn't got an easy position, because white will play 28. Qh4 and make more pressure on f6 and on the whole attack. Therefore Bisguier's sharp 22. Nf5!? is not losing "per se", but it's a very nasty move in fact!|
|Jul-29-13|| ||Strongest Force: Penrose should have been England's first GM instead of Miles.|
