|Nov-20-06|| ||Confuse: cute ending|
|Nov-20-06|| ||lvlaple: I'll say! Maybe move 24 could've been White's opportunity to haul back the knight.|
|Nov-20-06|| ||syracrophy: What a massacre!|
|Nov-20-06|| ||Joshua01: 28. Rxg6 seems better than Nxd6.
Does it hold?
28 ... Rxc4, 29 Rxc4 Qxc4, 30. Rxd6 looks ok to me.
Is there enough counterplay on 28 ... fxg6, 29 Qxg6?
Perhaps a perpetual?
|Nov-20-06|| ||thesonicvision: hmm....although black wins the
game, he had to defend for about
23 moves. maybe masters can get
away with playing this kind of
game, but amateurs such as myself
do not play the KID for this.
|Nov-20-06|| ||porkfloyd85: actually if you look at their ratings they are amateurs. But that was a very fine effort by black|
|Nov-20-06|| ||Thrajin: I'd join the Paul Funk Parliament any day. ;-)
|Nov-20-06|| ||Tenderfoot: Ouch.|
|Nov-20-06|| ||aldehyde: all one can say is that white was torn apart.|
|Nov-20-06|| ||Castle In The Sky: White made too major mistakes: 1)White never played an early prophylactic Kb1, which would have kept the a file close 2) 21. cxb5. this trade opened up the queenside for black and left white's king unproctected, as all of its pieces were focused on a kingside attack. Better might have been to ignore the attack on the c-pawn and focus on kingside. If black pushed the pawn to b6, then white could easily lock the pawn structure.|
|Nov-20-06|| ||kevin86: The ending was whimsical,if one sided. Black's queen entered the attack on the queenside and chased the opposing king to the kingside-leaving white's pieces as useless ornaments-subject to capture or even neglect at any time.|
|Nov-20-06|| ||The17thPawn: <porkfloyd85> - I thought anyone rated over 2200+ had to be considered Master strength but not an official FM? Has the criteria for Master strength ratings changed?|
|Nov-20-06|| ||YouRang: Hey, lets give it up for Peter Strauss and his "never say die" style of play!|
|Nov-21-06|| ||technical draw: White just thought he was going to Waltz to a victory.|
|Nov-30-06|| ||Rocafella: <The17thPawn> None of the players are 2200 strength or over at the time of this game|
|Dec-07-06|| ||The17thPawn: <Rocafella> Thanks for the clarification. I was just going by the 2242 listed for Mr. Funk on this site, but have no idea when that rating was acheived.|
|Dec-17-06|| ||Rocafella: <The17thPawn> Glad to be of service :)|
