|Oct-28-04|| ||Bobak Zahmat: Wow! What a great game! A real fantastic battle. Whiths bishop likes immortal. |
|Jan-07-05|| ||Leviathan: 11.0-0-0? That's way too slow for a gambit (especially when you are gambiting a whole knight)!|
This move wastes almost all white's advantage: he has to fight for 89(!) moves to win.
White should have played 11.Nxd5 cd5 12.Qf6+ Kd7 13.Bb5+ Kc7 14.Qxh8
In fact, the 'fried liver attack' (6.Nxf7!) usually leads to a quick victory for white (see Games Like R Schmidt vs R Solice, 1993 - almost all less than 30 moves)
|Jan-07-05|| ||maoam: Then you could say that there was no solice for Black after accepting the sacrifice. |
|Jan-07-05|| ||cade: Why not 11.Qf6+ winning a rook and continuing the pressure on blacks kingside? |
|Apr-13-05|| ||gidguy2000: To me it looks like Black should win this endgame until black plays 55...g4? Black had white's pawns covered, and by undoubling white's pawns, allows for a passed pawn. The rook should be vastly superior to the bishop, should it not? |
|Feb-06-06|| ||Bobak Zahmat: <Leviathan> You have just mentioned the correct way to win this game easier and faster. Tnx!|
|Feb-06-06|| ||Bobak Zahmat: <cade> 11.Qf6+ isn't winning. It is necessary to open the c-file. Therefore you have to play first Nxd5!|
|Jan-25-09|| ||DarthStapler: Quantum of Solace|
|May-05-09|| ||WhiteRook48: so a bishop beats a rook!!
14 Nc7+! is one of the best Zwischenzugs I have ever seen!
|Dec-25-09|| ||sfm: 51.-,Rd8 52.Kd2,RxB+ wins without problems.|
|Jun-21-11|| ||Dr. J: White can rescue his knight and win the game by 20 Ne6 Bxe6 21 Re1+, or 20...Rxf3 21 Nc5 protecting f2.|
The endgame is terribly played by Black. 55...g4 is a terrible strategic blunder, allowing White to dissolve his major weakness and end up with a useful passed pawn. He's probably still lost by weight of material, but almost every one of his next 10 or so moves is a complete waste of time, although I don't know which move(s) threw away the win and the draw.
