|Jun-05-03|| ||morphynoman2: Yes, this is not a very good game for Horowitz. Black is absolutely won, but 76... Qxf3 is a false sacrifice. |
|Jun-05-03|| ||kevin86: Horowitz played many better games than this-what made it so memorable was the final moves. Pavey tried to simplify only to run into a pitfall.
In football it's called a HAIL MARY,in basketball it's a lob pass,in chess it is this! |
|Jun-05-03|| ||ksadler: <refutor> Here's a great example of your "boxing in" technique ;) |
|Jul-25-04|| ||Sneaky: At what point does this swindle really begin? Is there an improvement over 76...Qxf3?|
For example if 76...Ra3 (looks logical enough) then 77.Qe7+ creating complications--or can the King escape the checks??
|Jul-25-04|| ||tayer: <Sneaky: At what point does this swindle really begin? Is there an improvement over 76...Qxf3?> I was just thinking the same. It seems that the answer is 76. ... ♔d6. After that Horowitz is in zugzwang, and his best continuation is 77. ♕e3 ♕xe3 78. fxe3 with an easy win for black. |
|Jul-25-04|| ||kevin86: An amusing continuation is (after 76...♔d6)77♕d3 ♖a3 78 ♕e2 ♖xf3 CHECK!-no stalemate,as in the text. |
|Jul-25-04|| ||Calli: A Horowible end for Max. ;-> |
|Jul-25-04|| ||tpstar: After falling into the stalemate swindle, Black was at his witz end - to the Max. |
|Jul-25-04|| ||aw1988: I don't understand... wasn't horowitz in the 1800's not the 1900's? |
|Jul-25-04|| ||Benzol: <aw1988> The 19th Century player was Bernhard Horwitz (1808 - 1885). He was born in Germany but was domiciled in England from 1845.|
The player of the above game was Israel Albert (Al) Horowitz (1907 - 1973). For many years he was the editor of Chess Life and Review.
Just to confuse you a little more there was another German player from Breslau Daniel Harrwitz (1823 - 1884).
He was among the world's best in the 1850's.
|Jul-25-04|| ||tayer: <kevin86: An amusing continuation is (after 76... ♔d6) 77. ♕d3 ♖a3 78. ♕e2 ♖xf3 CHECK!-no stalemate,as in the text.> Maybe you mistyped or I missunderstood because I think 78. ♕xf4+ will be better for white in that variation (instead of 78. ♕e2). |
|Jul-26-04|| ||kevin86: <tayer> note:my previous move was Qd3 not e3;one cannot get to f4 from d3.My move was to avoid the exchange of queens,which would have been certain doom----without a stalemate trap lol. |
|Jul-26-04|| ||tayer: <kevin86:> You are right. I was thinking on "77. ♕e3??". My mistake (sadly is too late to erase my dumb comment). |
|Dec-15-04|| ||aw1988: Looking at this game, some people may merely comment "boring". However, imagine how exhausting it was for the players to invent all these wonderful maneuvers and have to concretely calculate every one of them. Great game. |
|Dec-15-04|| ||iron maiden: This should go in suenteus po 147's "Never Resign" collection. |
|Feb-12-05|| ||aw1988: Oh yes, and a nice swindle too. |
|Jul-15-08|| ||ravel5184: <iron maiden> Game Collection: Never Resign!|
|May-27-09|| ||WhiteRook48: hahahahahahaha! 78 Kh4!!|
|Aug-05-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 76...Qxf3+?? gives away the win|
|Oct-14-09|| ||crosscheck: 75... Ra3 is the move. 76.Qe5 Qxe5 77.Kg3 Rxf3 78.Kxf3 Kd7 79.Ke4 Ke6 and now black's q-side pawns draw white's king away, and white pawns will be eaten, and black's g & H pawns will win it.|
|Nov-15-10|| ||NM JRousselle: 76... Kb6 looks pretty strong for Black.|
|Sep-06-13|| ||SeanAzarin: A classic example of Tartakower's Rule in action. Why didn't White resign? Because, according to Tartakower, "Nobody ever won a game of chess by resigning."|
|Dec-07-13|| ||chesswar1000: Pavey before 78. Kh4: I am so gonna win
Pavey after 78. Kh4: Any knives?
|Dec-07-13|| ||offramp: Flaming Nora - that is a truly shocking ending! A real stunner.|
|Aug-02-15|| ||d4c4daniel: There was an additional intresting way to sidestep the pitfall I think: instead of Qxf3+ ( the blunder) Rh1+!? Bxh1 (Kg2 Qh2) Qg4+ Qxg4 fxg4+ Kxg4 b3 and the pawn is unstoppable.|
