|Dec-22-02|| ||refutor: lev alburt is a fairly famous GM, known for playing opening that aren't mainstream (benko gambit, alekhine's defense etc.) |
|Dec-22-02|| ||refutor: Bronstein vs Fischer, 1960 ...bronstein drew fischer with it, which goes to show that any opening moves are playable at any level, as long as well you play well in the middlegame and the ending ;) |
|Dec-22-02|| ||Sylvester: Maybe Fischer made a blunder. |
|Dec-23-02|| ||PVS: He did, it was 19…Rxc2. See if you find the best move. Bronstein vs Fischer, 1960 |
|Dec-23-02|| ||Sylvester: I thought Fischer's move was okay, but I was wrong. My moves are on that game page. |
|Dec-23-02|| ||AgentRgent: Lev Alburt is a former US Champion as well. |
|Dec-23-02|| ||AgentRgent: http://www.uschess.org/news/bio/alb... |
|Dec-23-02|| ||Sylvester: Thanks AgentRgent. |
|Jun-25-04|| ||tomh72000: The opening is called the "veresov system" |
|Jun-25-04|| ||acirce: "Every Russian schoolboy" knows that you can't block your c-pawn with your knight like that. The Veresov gives me the creeps! |
|Aug-01-04|| ||kevin86: Of course,if black queens,he is mated in three via Qb8-the text turns the tables. Instead of gaining a queen at the loss of a game,the nascant knight CAPTURES a queen |
|Sep-11-05|| ||nasmichael: A nice solution package from the author of "I Play Against Pieces" and "Shall We Play Fischerrandom Chess?", Gligoric is looking for all solutions, and I appreciate his fresh look at the "exchange rate" of the pieces on the board.|
|Sep-15-05|| ||IT4LICO: I have found a fine underpromotion combination
but it is only italian.
And i've found a Marshall's loss, not in the database
1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. Bb5 Bb4 5. O-O O-O 6. d3 d5 7. Nxd5 Nxd5
8. exd5 Qxd5 9. Bc4 Qd6 10. c3 Ba5 11. b4 Bb6 12. a4 a5 13. b5 Ne7 14. Ng5
Qg6 15. Qe2 Bf5 16. g4 h6 17. gxf5 Nxf5 18. Kh1 hxg5 19. Rg1 g4 20. Ba3 Nh6
21. Bxf8 Rxf8 22. Rg2 Re8 23. f3 Qg5 24. Re1 Qe7 25. fxg4 Qa3 26. g5 Nf5
27. g6 Re7 28. Qh5 Nh6 29. Qxh6 gxh6 30. gxf7+ Kh7 31. f8=N+ Kh8 32. Rg8#
|Sep-15-05|| ||Rama: Black's very nice centralization -- partly forced -- 15 ... Qe5, leads to control of the a-file and penetration with 22 ... Qa2, and 24 ... Qd2. |
Question: can black play 25 ... Qxc1, and win a Rook?
28 ... Rxd4 also is very nice, especially after you realize it is protected by the Bishop!
|Dec-27-11|| ||Penguincw: You don't need a queen to win. A knight is perfectly fine, sometimes...|
|May-13-16|| ||offramp: The game is really good. The title is fair.|
|May-13-16|| ||al wazir: If 25...Qxc1, then 26. Qc4 Kf8 27. Qxg7+ Ke8 28. Ne3 Bc2 29. Qg4 Rxd4. The ♗ on d1 is dead, and black is a piece up.|
What am I missing?
|May-13-16|| ||newzild: <<al wazir:> If 25...Qxc1, then 26. Qc4 Kf8 27. Qxg7+ Ke8 28. Ne3 Bc2 29. Qg4 Rxd4. The ♗ on d1 is dead, and black is a piece up.
What am I missing?>
One possibility is a little intermezzo on move 28:
26. Qg4 Kf8
27. Qxg7+ Ke8
28. Qg8+! Kd7
and the threat of the discovered check gives White time to unpin the bishop.
|May-13-16|| ||TheTamale: "The Dark Knight Returns." Good pun--he sure does.|
|May-13-16|| ||perfidious: White's game is rendered horsie de combat at the finish.|
|May-13-16|| ||kevin86: The new knight wins the queen with no questions asked.|
|May-13-16|| ||beenthere240: Playing through the game I couldn't fathom the title since the black knight disappears fairly soon. Then in the last stages I saw how we were headed for an underpromotion.|
|May-13-16|| ||al wazir: <newzild>: Thanks. Yes, I rejected 28. Qg8+ because it looked like the loss of a tempo. |
And thanks for correcting my erroneous 26. Qc4.
|May-14-16|| ||newzild: <al wazir> Welcome.|
|Sep-02-17|| ||Toribio3: Wow, the killing knight. A masterpiece produced by the great Yugoslav grand-master Gligoric!|
