|Jun-18-07|| ||newton296: reminder too be careful after playing f5, exposing your king and weaking f7|
|Jun-18-07|| ||patzer2: For today's puzzle solution 6. exf6 leads to more than "you take mine and I take yours with equality," since 7. f7+ deflects the King (removing the guard) to win the Queen.|

|Jun-18-07|| ||dabearsrock1010: and if 5...dxe5 6. Bf7+|
|Jun-18-07|| ||fm avari viraf: In Chess, one must first learn the Traps & Pitfalls so one doesn't be the victim. This one is a good example how White wins the Black's Queen with a tiny pawn giving check.|
|Jun-18-07|| ||Billy Ray Valentine: If you ask me, black is busted after his 4th move. When white plays 5. e5, he's gaining a sizeable advantage. Unless I'm missing something.|
|Jun-18-07|| ||Billy Ray Valentine: And if you ask me, black's first move looks questionable.|
|Jun-18-07|| ||Infohunter: < mkrk17: Actually, i wouldnt call this a case of loose piece or overtaxed defender. Because, the queen is not loose (it has the king next to it), and the king cannot exactly be called overtaxed.>|
Well, the overtaxing is indirect. After White captures the N, Black cannot feasibly capture the B, since that opens the d file and thus has White's Q attacking Black's Q. The overtaxing part comes in when White plays 7.f7+; Black's K cannot defend himself (i.e., get out of check) _and_ maintain his defense of the Black Q at the same time. I suppose it would have been more accurate to say that Black's P at d5 was pinned, as the move 6...dxc4 opened the line that enabled White's crushing combination. It would have been relatively better for Black, therefore, not to capture the White B and so be "only" a piece down. But that were virtually tantamount to resigning, so maybe Black wanted to end it quickly.
|Jun-18-07|| ||Crowaholic: <realbrob: If you try and look for Juergen Henningsen in Google, you'll find out that Juergen Henningsen seems to have died in 1983!>|
No wonder he lost against Kamsky in 1993. After lying in a coffin for 10 years, with no chessboard, he must have been out of practice.
Kamsky vs J Henningsen, 1993
|Jun-18-07|| ||beginner64: Bummer, I didn't even come close to solving this.
Well - some Monday for me.
Now I am sure, it will not be 7/7 for me this week.
|Jun-18-07|| ||Slink: <mkrk17> <i actually would not laugh at guys who play 1.d3. I should know. A few players on playchess.com open with 1.b3 and 1.g3 , and with 1... b6 as black. And they eventually manage to defeat me.
These guys manage to wriggle out of all opening difficulties, and then punch me in the middlegame.|
Anyway, someday, when i'm a great positional player, i'll be able to punish these punks...>
I admire your honesty, and empathize. Happens to me all the time, too. To be thrown off a standard opening when your opponent plays some weird move can be disastrous, especially in rapid.
|Jun-18-07|| ||MaxxLange: I think it's an amateur misconception to assume that odd-looking stuff must lose by force. This is how the 1. f3 2. Kf2 guys score points online, people try to refute it by throwing everything at them right away.|

and 1. b3, 1. g3 & 1. d3 certainly don't merit that sort of response. nothing at all wrong with playing a KID/QID/Pirc etc. with a move in hand.
|Jun-18-07|| ||MaxxLange: the paradox is that the extra tempo is often not as useful as you would think.|
I think there's a chapter about that idea in a Dvoretsky book, and I think I have seen other writers explore it
|Jun-18-07|| ||ruelas007: what tournament was this? i dont belive that in Dortmund Sparkenssen players with a short knowledge of openings like this 2 are allowed to play|
|Jun-18-07|| ||lipschutz: Cute puzzle! I saw that, if the Black pawn on d5 and Knight on f6 were missing, White could win the Queen with Bf7+. Then it took me a few minutes to see that there actually was a way to force the King away from the Queen like this!|
|Jun-18-07|| ||patzer2: Black's mistake was 5...d5?? Instead 5...Nfd7 6. Nf3 gives Black active counter chances with only a slight White advantage.|
|Jun-18-07|| ||PositionalTactician: This is easy!|

|Jun-23-07|| ||nummerzwei: @ruelas 007:
Like every chess festival, the Dortmund Sparkassen also has open tournaments.
This game is from the B group
(referring to the stronger A-open, not to the masters tournament)
|Jun-24-07|| ||ruelas007: <nummerzwei>: Understood pal.|
|Apr-09-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 3...d6?|
|Oct-08-09|| ||WhiteRook48: maybe black was afraid of 5...Nd7 6 e6|
|Apr-02-10|| ||whiteshark: http://www.1d3a5.com/ huh|
