|Feb-15-15|| ||zanzibar: Paul Benson, in an online Skype coaching lesson, compares this game to |
<Beliavsky--Gelfand, Linares (1992)>
<Opening: Black plays an interesting knight manoeuvre to keep white from completing harmonious development.
Early middlegame: White offers some material for a lead in development, the black queen will be slow to return to assist the defence.
Middlegame: Every white piece joins the attack, note how the white dark square bishop becomes very strong. Tactics flow from move 17 onwards, look out for a powerful finish.>
The game which Freeman refers to having studied, I believe. Benson then comments on this game:
<This game is between the co-founders of the web site www.chessgames.com.
Opening: Black plays the same interesting knight manoeuvre to keep white from completing harmonious development.
Early middlegame: White deviates from the above game on move 12 but offers the same material for a lead in development, the black queen is again too slow to return to assist the defence.
Middlegame: White again invades the black kingside, and again there is a powerful finish to find and yet again the dark squares play an important role. >
|Mar-04-15|| ||Richard Taylor: That's the way! Win at skittles! Nice crazy attacks by both players actually enjoying chess, well at least one really enjoyed it!|
[Yes, the founders, bosses?
Sadly, Artidello has recently passed away.]
|Mar-04-15|| ||Richard Taylor: Great mate combo at the end!|
|Mar-04-15|| ||SimplicityRichard: My condolences.
The Founders of Chessgames.com. demonstrate how it's done. A brilliant game culminating with an equally stupendous combination.
