|Jan-22-07|| ||The Backward Pawn: Nice finish 16.Kh1 Ng3+ 17.hxg3 hxg4#|
|Jan-22-07|| ||chempion: nice finish!|
|Jan-22-07|| ||backyard pawn: Nifty forced finish!
Hello, The Backward Pawn!
|Jan-22-07|| ||Hidden Skillz: in my mind 12.Nd3 was a passive and decisive mistake|
|Jan-22-07|| ||khense: Does white survive with 15 Qa4?|
|Jan-22-07|| ||coastalferg: a less efficient yet cooler mate would be, 16.Kh1 Qg1+ 17.Rxg1 Ng3+ 18.hxg3 hxg4#|
|Jan-22-07|| ||Tactic101: White played passively here. But still, nice finish. However, I don't get why this is game of the day. It didn't seem very special or anything. Was it just playing on words?|
|Jan-22-07|| ||Sularus: is this the longest pun ever?|
|Jan-22-07|| ||Richard Taylor: great finish!|
|Jan-22-07|| ||schnarre: It'd be hilarious if Law was actually a cop....|
|Jan-22-07|| ||Rubenus: <Tactic101> I have seen games of the day which are much more boring. Didn't you find it a nice finish?|
|Jan-22-07|| ||kevin86: A nice way to start out the week. Black comes up with a brilliant mate in three. Just go back a few moves and even try to imagine a mate delivered from pieces at b6 and h8-even without them moving a muscle!|
|Jan-22-07|| ||keypusher: <However, I don't get why this is game of the day. It didn't seem very special or anything.>|
Oh, c'mon, if Morphy had played this, it would be in every anthology. What a wonderful combination!
|Jan-22-07|| ||WannaBe: <keypusher> That's an interesting thing to try, randomly pick a miniature, and put Morphy's name in place of the actual winning player, and see the reaction from CG.com's members. =)|
|Jan-22-07|| ||kevin86: How about the master of sacrifices: Tal? For a long time,he appeared about twice a week on the gotd.|
|Jan-22-07|| ||AAAAron: great game! From this game I'd assume Hastings was "special", and started drooling on himself before he resigned. Dee da Dee|
|Jan-22-07|| ||Themofro: Great game.|
|Jan-22-07|| ||GeauxCool: This Jonathan Hastings has a miserable looking database, no apparent improvement in 20 years of play. Just paltry draws on a Vienna variation after trading queens on the 5th move. <1.e4 e5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.Bc4 Nxe4 4.Qh5 Nd6 5.Qxe5+ Qe7 6.Qxe7+ Bxe7> That's a good variation to remember. If he can draw it, so can I. But he definitely needs some wins uploaded, if there are any available, poor guy! |
In this game, 7.Ng5 was the best chance to draw, based on <CGOE>.
|Jan-22-07|| ||greatdane: Great Monday game, great pun. Out of 15 moves, 11 involves Knights. Never seen such massive Knight activity deciding a game never really begun. Amazing. Thanks to <The Backward Pawn> for giving the finish - didn't see it right away (only saw the game late night in my country!).|

Morphy would have been proud. (although Law didn't sacrifice enough pieces before mate).

|Jan-23-07|| ||kevin86: fifteen moves-fourteen combined knight moves---such horseplay!! lol|
|Jan-02-09|| ||WhiteRook48: got it. Law might try a sacrifice. It's in the law to do queen sacs:
16. Kh1 Qg1+!! 17. Rxg1 Ng3+!! 18. hxg3 hxg4# 0-1|
|Jun-25-09|| ||GrahamClayton: Hastings didn't put up much of a "battle". My first CG pun!|
|Mar-25-11|| ||Penguincw: Nice mate.|
