|Dec-04-04|| ||Backward Development: 867-5309! great pun, and excellent play with the pawns. after a curious opening white suddenly has a passed pawn, he offers the exchange, undertakes several very delicate bishop maneuvers and the last few moves are instructive. good game. |
|Dec-04-04|| ||kevin86: A really different way to approach things;white gains a passed pawn-and uses all of his strength to push it home-and succeeds. |
|Dec-04-04|| ||cu8sfan: Thanks, <chessgames.com> for picking up on GM Florian Jenni, Switzerland's most successful player at the 36th Olympiad (2004).|
I suggested "Jenni from the block" on F Jenni vs L Cyborowski, 2004. I agree, one J-Lo pun per decade is fine, but this could have turned into a running gag! (-:
|Dec-17-04|| ||patzer2: White's 20. Rc6! gives Black the opportunity to "win the exchange." Black declines the offer, because the powerful double passed pawns resulting from the greedy Rook capture would give White an overwhelming advantage. Unfortunately, declining the poisoned Rook is not sufficient to prevent White from securing a passed pawn for decisive advantage. |
|Nov-01-05|| ||DAL9000: 21. g4 seems really weird to me-- what stops Black from playing 21... Qxd5?|
|Nov-01-05|| ||OhioChessFan: <Dal9000>, it forces the Queen exchange. Once the Black Queen is off the board, the passed pawn dominates. If 21....Qxd5, then
22 Qxd5 exd5 23 Rxd6 and the d5 pawn or bishop are untenable.|
