|Nov-26-03|| ||jaime gallegos: This game won the first prize of beauty on Aeroflot 2002 Open, it was played at the first round. Vasiukov explains that he played the Moscow variation 4. Qxd4 for decades, the Bishop sacrifice is schocking ! |
|Nov-26-03|| ||technical draw: I think I'll start practicing 4. Qxd4. <jaime gallegos> Tienes razon, el alfil se ve raro en esa posicion! |
|Apr-05-04|| ||Vischer: this is not the moscow variation jaime gallegos, the moscow is 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.Bb5+ |
|Sep-27-04|| ||ConLaMismaMano: There will be a lecture on this game today by Dennis Monokroussos, see http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail.... |
|Oct-02-04|| ||RisingChamp: No wonder it won the First Brilliancy prize this is a beautiful attack.Just leaving his bishop to be eaten was also very spectacular. |
|Oct-02-04|| ||The Analyst: 19 Qh2 also wins: 19...Ke8 is forced (since 19...Bxg5 20 fxe6 fxe6 21 Nxc6 Qxc6 22 Rxd6 Qc7 23 Nb5 or 23 e5 are hopeless for Black), when 20 fxe6 Nf8 21 exf7+ Qxf7(21...Kxf7 22 Rf1+ Kg8 (22...Ke8 23 Nf5 Qf7 24 Rxd6) 23 Rxf8+ Kxf8 (if the bishop or rook takes, then 24 g6) 24 Qh8+ Qg8 25 Rf1+ Bf6 26 Qh3 Kf7 (26...Ke7 27 gxf6+ gxf6 28 Qg3 leaves Black in a complete mess.) 27 gxf6 gxf6 28 g5 is won for White) 22 Nf5 g6 23 Nxd6+ Bxd6 24 Rxd6 Qh7 (24...Nd7 loses to 25 Nd5 and 25 Qh6) 25 Qf4 Qe7 (25...Rc7 26 Rf6 Rf7 27 e5 wins) 26 Rf6 can be resigned for Black.
<Vischer> This can also be reached by 1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 d6 3 Bb5+ Nc6 4 d4 cxd4 5 Qxd4. |
|Aug-01-05|| ||bomb the bishop: Impressive game, my favorite continuation of this opening, it is definetly worth looking at|
|Sep-14-06|| ||kitloveschess: White maintained the initiative from beginning to end. He sacrificed his Bishop to strip off the Black King´s defensive line and to successfully attack the weakened squares allowing a successful endgame! Brilliant attack!!!|
|Feb-19-09|| ||Jonathan Sarfati: Great attack by the 69yo veteran, one of many strong Russian GMs who is not as well known as he should be.|
|Mar-07-11|| ||butilikefur: <32...Rxg8 33. Qxg8+ Kf6 34. Qe6+ Kg5> 34...Kg7 35. Ne8+ (35. Qh6+ Kf7 36. Rf8+ Ke7 37. Qf6+ [37. Qxd6+ Kxd6 38. Nb5+ Ke7 39. Nxc3 Bxc2+ 40. Kxc2 Kxf8 41. Nb5 or 41. g5] 37...Kd7 38. Rd8+ Kc6/Kxc7 39. Qxd6+ mate) 35...Kxh8 36. Qf6+ and 37. Qg7+ mate|
<35. Qh6+ Kxg4 36. Qh4+ Kf5 37. Rh5+ Kg6 38. Rg5+ Kf7 39. Qf4+ Ke7 40. Rg7+ Kd8 41. Qf8+ mate>
is there a faster way to mate?
