|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.
|Jan-08-19|| ||jith1207: A sad comeback to this game as both founders of the site and the players of this game are no more with us. 18 years, and thank you everyone who has been building and still supporting this great product of the Internet era. |
This game is highlighted in the Opening Explorer and today's opening of the day feature.
