|Dec-08-04|| ||InspiredByMorphy: Theres nothing wrong with 5. ...Bc5 . Black could have played 6. ...Nxd4 with an equal game. |
|Jan-17-05|| ||Dave Murray: I saw 8. g4, but it doesn't look like a typical Monday puzzle solution... |
|Jan-17-05|| ||Novice713: The earlier kibitzing helped me to understand this - the black queen can't protect the bishop anymore, all the squares on the 5th rank are covered. |
|Jan-17-05|| ||notsodeepthought: It took me a little while to realize this is not Efim Geller, but a namesake - a relation perhaps? Not that a 2400+ rated player should fall for this kind of trap, but at least it wasn't one of the former top 10 or so players in the world. |
|Jan-17-05|| ||iron maiden: This is the trouble with fooling around with the Qh4 line. You have to watch where you put your pieces or else this happens. |
|Jan-17-05|| ||erikcu: I had to keep telling myself, its just Monday until I saw the solution after about 5 minutes. |
|Jan-17-05|| ||Swapmeet: You'd have to be a real Jakov to fall into this...har har |
|Jan-17-05|| ||newold: <notsodeepthoutght>
In fact 6. ... Nge7 was a routine move - 6. ... Nxd4 was required.|
But these blunders can happen for everybody, even strong masters. Who can say that it never happens to him(her)self ??
|Jan-17-05|| ||ice lemon tea: being down a piece + other pieces didn't developed very good compared to white...considering this situation, black is more likely to lose...but black can turn this game around if only he show some fighting spirit... |
|Jan-17-05|| ||erimiro1: Great trap. For those who look for short games between GM's, I recommend Botvinik-Spielman from 1935, which ended afret 12 moves. |
|Jan-17-05|| ||catfriend: As if to compensate for the complex sunday puszzle, this one is quite simple: The main threat juming to one's eyes is :c5. But-surprise-we see then the bushop is protected by the queen. Wait, the queen has no safe place on the 4th line - and we have the solution! |
|Jan-17-05|| ||gambiter: Nd5 wins also: NxN PxN Na5 BxB. |
|Jan-17-05|| ||nosh: <gambiter> No... 8 Nd5 Nxd5 exd5 Bxe3... White gains no material. |
|Jan-17-05|| ||patzer2: Today's Monday puzzle features the classic deflection tactic 8. g4! as the solution, which deflects the Queen off the fifth rank, allows 9. BxB, and leaves Black a piece down in a resignable position. |
|Jan-17-05|| ||midknightblue: I missed this. A monday puzzle too. I feel like squaredance. |
|Jan-17-05|| ||kevin86: A twopenny trap for a 2417 player! After all,we were shown how a renowned grandmaster can fall into a simple trap-Tartokower losing to Reti-so maybe it's no surprise.|
This one may be TOO simple for Monday! A regular "Run Spot run".
|Jan-17-05|| ||SickedChess: J. Geller is just an IM dont get confused with Efim Geller the soviet Grand Master |
|Mar-12-05|| ||aw1988: The Steinitz variation of the Scotch (4...Qh4, not 4...Ke7) has the basic idea of "I'll let you have an attack, but I can still grab a pawn in any case, and the position should be roughly unclear".|
Whilst this is great for those who like tenacious defense and wish to grab a little bit "to go", the Steinitz variation also has the nasty habit of the pieces tripping over themselves if not played properly.
|Oct-15-05|| ||HammerTime: why i love paul morphy anyway?|
|Oct-15-05|| ||HammerTime: bobby or garry dont stand no where near paul, hence!|
|Mar-03-06|| ||McCool: Are you sure Kaido Kulaots is rated this high?|
|Oct-27-06|| ||WarmasterKron: <<Swapmeet> You'd have to be a real Jakov to fall into this...har har>|
As the saying goes, a Jackov all trades is a master of none.
|Sep-02-07|| ||timhortons: id seen these game in the database of chessmaster 10th edition...and id find it funny for a master to fell these way|
|Nov-24-08|| ||nthan: Don't play chess Geller..go and play backgammon...|
|Nov-27-09|| ||InspiredByMorphy: I used to think 6. ...Nxd4 was the move but 6. ...d6 is better.|
