|Mar-23-04|| ||seoulmama: A great game by Alexandra. Showing no respect for the miserable Caro Kann. |
|Mar-24-04|| ||drukenknight: what is wrong w/ 26...Qxg3? |
|Mar-24-04|| ||TrueFiendish: 26...Qxg3 27.Rd1 |
|May-25-04|| ||tacticsjokerxxx: 3.Nd2... smart. |
|May-25-04|| ||refutor: any ideas why the "modern" mainline involves 7. ... Nf6 and the "classical" mainline with 7. ...Nd7 isn't played as much anymore? |
|Jun-23-04|| ||arifattar: Funny game, what with black wanting to exchange Qs and white refusing time and again. |
|May-07-05|| ||sfm: Where's blacks first mistake? Surely 11.-,Qxd1+ 12.Kxd1, Sxh7 seems OK, and at least a lot better than the game :-) Black can follow up with -,e6, -,0-0-0 and should be fine? OK, there are some problems with white at some time playing Sh5, but there are always some problems...|
|Apr-07-06|| ||AlexandraThess: < seoulmama> What a shame! How you dare to call the best defence miserable!|
|Apr-07-06|| ||seoulmama: AlexandraThess, Caro-Kann is just not my cup of tea - so I have the right to be sarcastic. After all, it IS pretty miserable :-)|
|Dec-30-07|| ||DanLanglois: 21 Qd3! looks much better than 21 Qf7?
However, Black erred with 23...Nd7? Better is 23...h5!
|Dec-31-07|| ||Shams: <DanLanglois> what about 23...h5 24.♗b6+ ♔c8 25.♘f1 Δ ♘e3 and ♖d1 <?>|
|Jan-05-08|| ||DanLanglois: <Shams 'what about 23...h5 24.b6+ Kc8...'> Not 24...Kc8 but 24...Kd7. Then perhaps: 25 Nf1 Nd5 26 Ne3 Qb4 and Black is threatening ...Qxb2 and ...Qf6. To consolidate, I think that Black might just sack out his knight (though Black gets a third pawn): 27 Ba7 Qxb2 28 Rd1 Qf6 29 Qxf6 exf6 30 f4 Bd6 31 cxd5 exd5.|
|Jan-17-09|| ||Phantom.Nightmare: 13.e6! is well played.|
|Aug-06-10|| ||asiduodiego: Nice game by Alexandra. I guess Yuanyuan after the game should have though: "Damn, I didn't want to exchange queens at first, and after that, I spent the rest of the game trying to do so". Makes a lot of sense 11. ..., Qxd1+, and then probably a drawish game ensues, but white doesn't have a way to exploit the weak light squares. |
26. f3! Nice conception: deflecting.
