|Jan-26-06|| ||Richard Taylor: I think Black need to play 12. ... Bb7 and try to get Nc5 in - White gets a strong bind - I met Johansen in Auckland -or saw him play (and talked with him and a few others after the tournament in the lounge bar) - at the Zonal in January 2005. One of his games I noticed was long and convoluted like this one - he played this game very well. |
When Black blundered I think he was lost.
|Jan-26-06|| ||OhioChessFan: The doubling of Rooks on the c file was pointless. Nxc5 rendered the whole series of moves a waste of time.|
|Jan-26-06|| ||dakgootje: *Applauds for both* for white because he played black just off the board and for black because hes the first one in ages ive seen to allow a mate, HATE it when there is like a forced mate in 2 and he one who is about to lose resigns...|
|Jan-26-06|| ||PaulLovric: thanks for this aussie game <chessgames.com> on australia day|
|Jan-26-06|| ||cavaleiro: <PaulLovric> That's because Valenti is tough!!!|
Lot's of blunders, but 39...hxg4 was crucial.
(valente/valiente means tough in portuguese/spanish)
|Jan-26-06|| ||PaulLovric: <cavaleiro> huh? i do not understand you mate. ru brazilian?|
|Jan-26-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: Very funny pun for today's GOTD. :) I guess it is referring to 39...hxg4??|
By the way, what is Australia Day? (hey, that rhymed) :)
|Jan-26-06|| ||dakgootje: <EmperorAtahualpa>If its not true what follows then no offence meant, but i thought it was something like a day for the aussies to be happy to be aussie etcetera. I saw tennis on television today, Australian Open, i think the quarterfinales or something and one of the players was pretty distracted by the fireworks lol|
|Jan-26-06|| ||Jack Kerouac: I love Australian Day.A toast to the Aussies all day long!
Neal agrees with me.|
|Jan-26-06|| ||kevin86: Happy Australia Day,mate(s)! Is it no accident that the game ends in a mate? lol.|
|Jan-26-06|| ||PaulLovric: <kevin86>lol thanks mate
<Jack Kerouac> a toast to you too pull up a banana loung and have a beer and some lamb from the barbie.
<EmperorAtahualpa> australia day is thw 26 0f jan.|
|Jan-26-06|| ||apawnandafool: <dakgootje: HATE it when there is like a forced mate in 2 and he one who is about to lose resigns...> I HATE THIS TOO!!!!|
|Jan-26-06|| ||twinlark: <EmperorAtahualpa> It may refer to .39..hxg4, but Black is thoroughly stuffed and mounted by this time anyway. White is threatening 40.gxf7 and gxh5.|
|Jan-26-06|| ||jefipius: <cavaleiro:
Lot's of blunders, but 39...hxg4 was crucial.>
I'm not sure that in such a position I'd call it a blunder. Isn't black hosed no matter what he does? He's looking at 40. gxh which opens up the king side and spells doom - albeit a slightly slower one. At least 39...hxg4 required a nice piece sacrifice by white.

Australia Day celebrates the arrival of the First Fleet at Sydney Cove with its boat load of convicts, soldiers, ships crews and officers. There may have even been a handful of free settlers. It marks the beginning of British settlement and what was to become New South Wales and eventually Australia.|
|Jan-26-06|| ||jackmandoo: Very interesting position after 42.Qxg7, The king cannot capture the queen and it has no square to go to escape the check.|
|Jan-26-06|| ||MoonlitKnight: It's not as much a blunder as chessgames.com needing an excuse to use this fantastic pun!|
|Jan-26-06|| ||Kola: Total domination. Nice!|
|Feb-10-06|| ||MorphyMatt: 39... hxg4?????? it just makes no sense, opening up the h-file for white|
|Feb-10-06|| ||devilwolfdog: I agree with jackmandoo...after 42 Qxg7, black's position is almost hopeless|
|Feb-15-06|| ||MorphyMatt: <devilwolfdog> I beg to differ. After 42. Qxg7, black's position is mated.|
|Mar-01-06|| ||Averageguy: I believe that 40.Qh6 also forces mate.|
|Dec-06-07|| ||aazqua: Oh snap. Watch Daryl Johnson pound this clown into submission just like when he was lead blocking for the cowboys. Who says football players are all meatheads?|
|Aug-11-09|| ||RVALENTI: Just subscribing today to this site and surprised to see this game played 8 years ago.
Im just an amateur playing and losing against a grandmaster 400 fide points higher.
Why someone called me a clown is just beyond my imagination.|
|Nov-09-17|| ||piltdown man: Who's Daryl Johnson?|
