|Dec-19-03|| ||JSYantiss: northernsoul, the spelling "Zuerich" is technically correct.....In the German language, this spelling would normally have an umlaut (two dots, like a colon lying on its side) over the u in "Zuerich," but since American keyboards don't have the ability to produce letters with umlauts, an "e" is acceptable to be put in place of an umlaut when needed.|
Shadout Mapes, that is exactly the game I thought of too! White's rook thumbs his nose at Black's king in both that and this game.
|Dec-19-03|| ||Replic: Strange... I ran Crafty version 19.03 for a longer period of time- it picked and stuck with 20. Kxg7 the entire. Why is it my crafty seems to not be giving the same moves? Ignore the 1., that's really move 20.
Also a question- how does chessgames.com get crafty to give an advantage to black or white sign? Or do they simply add it themselves?
My crafty evaluation:
depth=16 2/3 +10.08 1. ... Kxg7 2. Ne6+ Kg8 3. Nxc7 Rac8 4. Bc4+ Kh8 5. Qg5 Nhf6 6. Qh6+ Nh7 7. Ne6 Rg8 8. Rd1 Nf6 9. Ng5 Rc7 10. Bxg8 Nxg8 11. Qxg6 Nxg5 12. Qxg5

|Aug-27-04|| ||patzer2: White's 18. Rg7+! is the solution to number 4901 in Laszlo Polgar's 1994 book "Chess," and is classified as a sacrfice on g2/g7.|
However, it seems to me the sacrfice to demolish pawn structure starts with 17. Rxf7+! and the combination starts with 15. Ng5!
|Dec-27-06|| ||Phony Benoni: This game was essentially duplicated in Orest Popovych v. John N Jacobs, US Open, 1967, Black dragging it out one more move with 20...Kh8 21.Rxg6.|
At least he could say he lost like a grandmaster. I wonder if Popovych knew the original game, and mentioned it to Jacobs afterward.
