Jan-11-07  think: Calculating out the mate in 2 at the end is an easy puzzle, having the foresight to play both a4 and a5, using a whole two moves to set up the mate, is a tough one.
Jan-11-07  syracrophy: This game reminds me a game, with the same sac 12.♗xb5 (and it's the first game where I've seen this thematic sac) is Nunn vs E Bhend, 1978
Jan-11-07  positionalgenius: <syracrophy>Hey man!
Jan-11-07  syracrophy: <positionalgenius> What the...? Unbelievable! :-D Hey man! What's up?!
Jan-11-07  positionalgenius: <syracrophy>Not much...waiting for corus... (our comp broke,thats why i'm not on as much.I'm in corpus right now)
Jan-11-07  syracrophy: <positionalgenius> So, you're already back from the military service?
Jan-11-07  Karel: Dudes, msn... :D
Jan-11-07  Ashram64: aims will work too...
Jan-11-07  belgradegambit: 22 ...Qg4 looks like a draw.
Jan-11-07  soberknight: <belgrade> I was thinking the same thing.

  kevin86: White employs a lot of tricks in this game. First,he gives up a piece for a pawn to set up passed pawns on the queen side. Then he plays a little ring-around-the -rosie with the queen: from h5-e8-h5-d1-a4-(b5-b6). The most subtle part of the combination was to advance a4 and a5-to block the path of black's rook and to set up a4 as a beachhead for his queen.

Mate,of course follows: 26...♔b7 27 ♕b5+ ♔a7 28 ♕b6#

Jan-11-07  tatarch: Surely Dovzik saw what was intended with Qd1 (and also a4 and a5)--why would he play into it? Maybe time pressure? Seems unlikely at the 22nd move, but I don't know.
Jan-11-07  schnarre: I'm going to have to check this line out further...
Jan-11-07  Shams: note that it was black who avoided the repetition, four moves before he resigned. Had he played ...Qg4 again, on his 22nd move, I wonder if white would have deviated. Has to hurt to spurn the draw and then tip your king over moments later.
Jan-12-07  soberknight: I just discovered a new record on

This game had only 15 posts on the day it featured as "Game of the Day" - well below average. It was a simple White win, fairly cut and dried after the opening fireworks, but more importantly, the Chessgames Challenge completely overshadowed it.

In comparison, the "Game of the day" for Friday, namely The World versus Arno Nickel, will probably reach 1060 pages or more by the next midnight. Making the statistically reasonable approximation that there are 25 kibitzes per page (count for yourself), we'll have 25*1060 = 26,500 comments on one game. I pity anyone who tries to read through all that crap! :)

We may have just set records for the least and most kibitzed games of the day in 2007. We're not halfway through January, but I don't expect those records to be broken this year. (I'm not sure what to expect from the next installments of the chessgames challenge. We'll see.)
