Apr-07-08  ARK84: 24. Qxb3 also looks ok for white..

he has a bishop, knight and rook for Queen and pawn

  parmetd: also 17. d4 is a mistake after exd3 Bxd3 Nb7 because now bxc5?? Nxc5! so now black has gained initiatve and lost no material for his attack except a pawn... now Kc2 is forced here with Qxh2 Kb2 (black has his pawn back....) I sure wouldn't want to be white!
Jan-15-09  blacksburg: Qb6, wow. wouldn't have seen that one coming, no way.
Jan-15-09  Chess Carnival: Why not 16.g3?
Jan-15-09  andymac: 25. Qb6!! is now my favourite move, like, ever. Nice game but Black looked on top for a while.
Jan-15-09  Kruglov: Why not 22.Nxd2 ? The Knight does nothing except guarding the c3 pawn, but Bb2 also guards it, and removing the defender by 22...Rxb2 23.Kxb2 Rb8+ fails to 24.Nb3.

Well, I suppose, the attack would continue as in text with 22...Bc2.

Jan-15-09  nd792001: Hi folks... I'm not seeing why not 25.Bxa1. Anyone?
Jan-15-09  njchess: White's troubles begin with the ill-conceived 4. Ng5. This is a move in the Italian Game that is often seen at the club level or lower. Black easily and accurately refutes it.

After move 10, White is forced on the defensive while Black relentlessly attacks his exposed king. He might as well have resigned since over the next 15 moves, White uses four of them to just move his king. He might have been better served by sacrificing material in exchange for castling.

  playground player: Given the position of Black's dark-square Bishop and Queen, White's 11. f4 was just asking for trouble... and he got it.
Jan-15-09  TheChessGuy: What an excellent finish! 26.Nxb6 axb6+ 27.Ba6 Rxa6#
Jan-15-09  computer chess guy: <White's troubles begin with the ill-conceived 4. Ng5> Ng5 is quite playable. Kasparov even played it (and won): Kasparov vs Timman, 1994
Jan-15-09  R.Sergiu: I love 19...Rdb8. It seems counter intuitive because the rook is already developed and the a file is very blocked, so why not develop the a rook ? ... well Radchenko answered this question in a beautifull way...
Jan-15-09  ounos: <nd792001: Hi folks... I'm not seeing why not 25.Bxa1. Anyone?> I think 25. Bxa1 Ne3! 26. Nxe3 Qa5+ 27. Qa4 Qxc5+ 28. Qb4 Rxb4 29. cxb4 Qxe3+ and Qxe2, unless I miss anything

  Phony Benoni: Having played this variation a number of times as Black, I can assure you that 4.Ng5 is quite playable for White. Or maybe I'm just not Radchenko.

11.f4 is the usual move. Where White really begins to have trouble is the greedy 15.b4. Instead, 15.Qxe4 is "normal" (or as normal as anything can be in a position like that). As the game shows, that little pawn on e4 can cause White a lot of havoc.

<Chess Carnival> Usually, in these situations, when White responds to ...Qh4+ with g3, Black plays ...Qxh2 planning ...Qxg3+ and the White king starts moving anyway.

As for the rest of the questions, I'm not touching this game without Rybka and a beer. Or maybe Rybka on beer.

  DarthStapler: After Qxe3+ in your line, Nc3 saves the Be2. Black is still winning, though
Jan-15-09  ounos: I did miss a couple of things. The line above does not end with Qxe2, but should be correct. There is another try for White though: 25. Bxa1 Ne3 26. Qa4. Then similarly 26. ... Qd5. White can defend the pawn with 27. Qa5, at the cost of allowing 27. ...Nc2+ 28. Ka4, where 28. ...Rb5 seems to end the issue.
Jan-15-09  jovack: entertaining game
Jan-15-09  WhiteRook48: what kind of patzer would play 6. Bb5+?
Jan-15-09  blacksburg: the pun is on "flamenco dancing," i think. i had to look it up. :)

  kevin86: White's king rolls out to pass-and is sacked!
Jan-31-09  1. h4: Awesome game, don't know why it isn't known more.
Mar-29-09  WhiteRook48: cool queen sac
Dec-23-09  SirChrislov: This game is a composition by Radchenko. published in InsideChess.

  GrahamClayton: <Chess Carnival>Why not 16.g3?

<Chess Carnival>,
Let's have a look - 16. g3 ♕xh2 17. bxc5 ♕xg3+ 18. ♔d1. Black doesn't seem to have any direct threats, and will lose the pawn on c6. Does anyone else have a better try for Black after 16. g3?.
