|Jan-03-04|| ||ivan2kilu: Extremely Instructive game, 6 Qe2 threatens a to win a pawn if Nxe4 |
|Jan-04-04|| ||Catfriend: Sorry... But how?|
|Jul-06-04|| ||Theoryhack: Beautiful! In the final position White threatens Rh5!|
6 Qe2 wins a pawn in the event of 6... Nxe4?! 7 Bxe4 Nf6? 8 Bxb7! Bxb7 9 Qb5+. instead 8...c6 first leaves black passive but not instantly losing.
|Aug-23-06|| ||notyetagm: This is the most instructive game I have ever seen on the tactical theme of <COORDINATE YOUR PIECES ON THE LOOSE SQUARES NEAR THE ENEMY KING>.|
Here the White h6-queen makes the h7-square loose. With the winning move 20 ♖g5!, White threatens to fully exploit the fact that he has <three different ways to coordinate on this loose h7-square>: 1) light-squared bishop on the b1-h7 diagonal (d3-bishop) 2) knight on g5, and 3) rook on the h-file.
All lines lead to mate or loss of the Black queen, the mate coming about due to the superb coordination of the White h6-queen with the White bishop, knight, or a rook against the loose h7-square or a different square near the Black king.
Black does not lose this game because of checks. Black does not lose this game because his king is exposed. <Black loses this game simply because White can effectively coordinate his pieces on a loose square near the Black king.>
|Aug-23-06|| ||syracrophy: 20.Rg5!!:
<a)> 20...Bxg5 21.Nxg5 and the only to avoid mate is 21...Qxg5 <21...Rd8 22.Qxh7+ Kf8 23.Qxf7#> 22.Qxg5 winning
<b)> 20...Qc7 21.Rh5!! gxh5 <if not is mate with 22.Qxh7#> 22.Qxh7#
|Aug-23-06|| ||notyetagm: <syracrophy> Yes, 20 ♖g5! is a great example of the <RELOADING> theme. |
If Black captures the White g5-rook with his bishop (20 ... ♗xg5), then White simply <RELOADS> on the g5-square with his knight (21 ♘xg5), which forces mate or wins ♕ for ♖.
|Jan-12-07|| ||syracrophy: <notyetagm> And a last variation: 20...♕c7 21.♖h5!! ♖d8 22.♕xh7+ ♔f8 23.♕h8#|
Anyways, Black was hopelessly lost
|Mar-10-07|| ||beginner64: Black can continue with 20. ..f5.
In that case, game may continue:
21. Rxg6 hxg6
22. Qxg6+ Kh8
|Aug-11-07|| ||dumbgai: Another exciting game in the same opening, from the same tournament is Morozevich-Van Wely where white also won with a decisive kingside attack. Perhaps we won't be seeing this line again in grandmaster play.|
|Oct-29-07|| ||whiteshark: Thor's hammer to g5!|
|Oct-29-07|| ||whiteshark: The next day <van Wely> repeated this game til move 12 only to resign seven moves later !! Morozevich vs Van Wely, 2002|
|Apr-20-08|| ||Open Defence: why not simply 15...g6 ?|
|Apr-20-08|| ||whiteshark: <Open Defence: why not simply 15...g6 ?> I think it's transposing after <15...g6 16.Rhg1 Nh5 17.Qh3> |

when black blundered with 17...Nf4??. But <17...Ng7 18.Ng5 Bxg5 19.Rxg5 e5 20.Qh4 Be6> instead looks o.k. for black.
