|Mar-21-06|| ||blingice: Chessmaster's opinion on black's 15th move (best move): <Score: 0.77 15...Kd8 16.Ba3 Bd7 17.Bxd6 Bxa4 18.Bf4 Nc6 19.Rac1 Nxd4 20.Nxd4 Bxd4 21.Rxc7>|
<Holden> After 15...c6, Chessmaster still moves <3.09 16.d5 Qc5 17.dxe6 Qxf2+ 18.Kh1 fxe6 19.Bd2 Qc5 20.Rac1 Qb5 21.Qa3>.
|Mar-21-06|| ||xenophon: Pritt sticked?|
|Mar-21-06|| ||gus inn: "Lilly vs Pritt" How come it more sound like a movie from the goog old west ?! :)|
|Mar-21-06|| ||mravikiran: You can find this (type of a) game typically in the first round of an average chess tournament.|
|Mar-21-06|| ||McCool: Why not 12. ..Ne7?
Defensive, and free's up an attack on the d4 pawn.
|Mar-21-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: <Pritt sticked?> LOL!! That would have been by far the best pun for this GOTD. :)|
|Mar-21-06|| ||AniamL: What about <Bad Pritt>?|
|Mar-21-06|| ||Jim Bartle: Very good. Did any of the Americans notice that in the NCAA tournament, Bradley Univ. upset Pittsburgh?|
Yes, the shorthand for this game is Brad-Pitt.
|Mar-21-06|| ||kevin86: A pretty lousy game-I guess the pun fit. lol
I was waiting for the next contest (after Bradley-Pittsburgh) to seeing the game between the sofa company and the small Alabama town:Jennifer-An(n)iston. But since they broke up-I had to get my Jolies somewhere else.

The bishop has in fact no flight square because of the knight fork after 17...Bg4. (17.d5! and there is nothing better than 17...Bxd5, Black loses a piece anyway.)
|Mar-21-06|| ||kansasofunitedstates: "Pritt some of your lilly on my knee"!
|Mar-21-06|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: "Gild the lily" is one of the most famous misquotations - it is from Shakespeare's King John - link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Famous....|
|Mar-21-06|| ||goldenbear: I don't get the idea behind Bc5 or Bxb4. I'm a king's gambit player but I think the Evan's Gambit is even easier for White than KGA.|
|Mar-21-06|| ||keypusher: The idea behind ...Bxb4 is grabbing a pawn. One of the best ideas there is.|
|Mar-21-06|| ||goldenbear: The position after nine moves is hilarious. If Black's a8 rook was a queen, he would still have a difficult task ahead.|
|Mar-21-06|| ||goldenbear: <keypusher> "Grabbing a pawn".... if there's a more ominous phrase in chess then I'd like to hear it.|
|Mar-21-06|| ||goldenbear: Bc5 doesn't make sense to me. If Black is expecting to balance the position dynamically in a position with symmetrical pawns, he will fail; white's got half a tempo from the start.|
|Mar-21-06|| ||keypusher: <If Black is expecting to balance the position dynamically in a position with symmetrical pawns, he will fail; white's got half a tempo from the start.> |
Chess isn't that exact a game. After 3 Bc4 Bc5 there are only two ways for White to try to take advantage of his "half tempo", 4 c3 and 4 b4. 4 c3 Nf6 5 d4 leads to equality or, if White is truly ambitious, an advantage for Black. Hence White usually continues quietly with 5 d3. As for 4 b4, I like the Evans Gambit myself, but it's certainly nothing for Black to be afraid of.
A lot of aggressive Black players prefer 3...Nf6 to 3...Bc5, but there is no abstract principle about half tempos or symmetry that will support preferring one move to the other.
|Mar-21-06|| ||blingice: <Jim Bartle> Haha, yes, I saw it as soon as I started watching it. If I was an announcer, I surely would've pointed it out.|
|Mar-21-06|| ||goldenbear: <keypusher> You're definately right in some sense but can't White just play d3, O-O, Nc3, etc., and expect Black to copy him? Or does Black have viable, violent, or positional alternatives? If Black is just intending symmetry, then if White makes the best possible moves, whatever they may be, won't he be able create weaknesses and slowly gain a superior game?|
