|Jul-14-11|| ||azax: I swear I've seen this game before, at least the series of moves. Unfortunately, I don't have full access to the CG database...|
|Jul-14-11|| ||rilkefan: Bit surprised the pun wasn't better - "A real hiiding" or "Threw the book at him" spring to mind. Or even "Hit him like a ton of books".|
|Jul-14-11|| ||FSR: <azax> The only other game in the database with 4...Ng5 is J Kis vs E Csato, 1993, which took a completely different course and was won by Black.|
|Jul-14-11|| ||BiteByBits: i think black played a help mate by Kxc4 but thats what happens when you want to risk your king like that...|
|Jul-14-11|| ||AylerKupp: I admire White's self control. He could have taken Black's queen for straight 7 moves and refrained from doing so.|
|Jul-14-11|| ||Sem: Spoil-the-pun: wasn't his name written Böök and pronounced like 'Euwe'?|
|Jul-14-11|| ||consul: The pun made me laugh! But i wouldn't laugh thinking about the game. Very interesting also the lines proposed after 10.Kc6.|
|Jul-14-11|| ||midknightblue: typical book moves. No surprises here.|
|Jul-14-11|| ||HeMateMe: My hero Eero was "booked up", as they say at the Chess Life sales window.|
|Jul-14-11|| ||APatzer: Black queen not worth taking !|
|Jul-14-11|| ||hedgeh0g: Not sure if any of this was "book" in 1925, but White simply played the most obvious moves after Black blundered in the opening and quickly achieved a won game.|
|Jul-14-11|| ||kevin86: "I am Book-do you read me?" I remember this game from the 1000 Best Short Games of Chess.-by Chernov;I even remember his cute remark on black's last move:look who is checking.|
Not exactly a Monday puzzle...
|Jul-14-11|| ||castledweller: exciting game . . .
Black's queen is left hanging while White chases the king all around the board, attempting to mate without the need to take the queen - a unique and fun game. And it all happens so early on - thx CG.
|Jul-14-11|| ||castledweller: one for the books|
|Jul-14-11|| ||Yerbamate: insane combinations deep|
|Jul-14-11|| ||Blunderdome: Hmm, I didn't suggest this game for game of the day, but I did make the same pun on Feb 9th, 2010 at Keres vs Book, 1952.|
|Jul-14-11|| ||SuperPatzer77: <Kevin86> Let's say "Book him for checkmate" when mirandizing him. LOL LOL LOL.|
|Jul-14-11|| ||Lorenzon: wow what a coincidence, I looked at this game yesterday!!|
|Jul-14-11|| ||WhiteRook48: awesome mating attack, but horrendous pun|
|Oct-31-12|| ||pablo333: Brilliant play from Book: white appears to have a forced win after the seemingly logical 7... g6 from Hiidenheimo.|
|May-01-14|| ||Mats G: The first name of black is Antti. The game is certainly authentic: It was played in the school championship of Suomalainen yhteiskoulu in the fall 1925 (Eero Böök: Odödliga partier och andra schackkåserier, Holger Schildts förlag, Helsingfors, 1966)|
|May-01-14|| ||sakredkow: Throw the Book at him!|
|May-01-14|| ||TheFocus: Yeah! Hit him in the Heimo!|
|Oct-31-14|| ||Rookiepawn: Bishop opening - Blanel gambit... But it counts as a notable game for the Frankenstein-Dracula variation.|
Are the two the same?
|Apr-21-15|| ||TheaN: With the Vienna game being the opening of the day, I have to correct my own analysis from 2010: <TheaN: 10.Bb5†?!> in reaction to 10.O-O-O+ Kc6 11.Bxd8 being the best move. I wrote down 10.Bb5+, but meant 11.Bb5+, as possibly being better than 11.Bxd8.|
It's not true. After 11.Bxd8 Bh6+ 12.Kb1 Rxd8 13.Nf3 Bg7 14.Rhe1 black is indeed busted, as he can't defend e5. Unable to develop, the game is hopeless.
After 11.Bb5+?! Kb6 12.Bxd8 Bh6+ 13.Kb1 Rxd8 , if 14.Nd5+ Kxb5 15.Nxc7+ Kc6 16.Nxa8 white is better, but black will regain Pf7 at some point and can probably untangle himself.
