Dec-23-03  nateinstein: Very good move. If 8... Qa5+, 9. Bd2 Qb6 10. a5 Qxb2 11. Bc3 wins queen since if 11... Qb6 12. Nc7+ wins queen.
Dec-23-03  Fisto: Didn't see that coming.
Dec-23-03  NoName: nor did i!
Dec-23-03  Benjamin Lau: Lol, the comedy of truth. So NoName, are the rumors that you've lived over 400 years true?
Dec-23-03  Catfriend: <nateinstein> I didn't understand the end of your analysis.. if 11..Qb6 why not simply 12.a:Qb6 ?
and 12.Nc7+ loses the knight...
Did u mean Qb5?
Dec-23-03  Qian: wow.

  patzer2: <natenstein/Catfriend> Fritz 8 verifies 8... ♕a5+, 9. ♗d2 ♕b6 10. a5 ♕xb2 11. ♗c3 as best play winning the queen. Now if 11...♕b6 12. axb6 wins the queen.

Fritz's analysis continues 11...♕xa1 12. ♗xa1 ♗d8 13. ♘xg7+ ♔e7 14. 0-0 ♘f6 15. dxe5 dxe5 16. ♕f3 ♔f8 17. ♘f5 c5 18. ♕e3 (+3.19 @ 16 depth & 659kN/s).

  talchess2003: My calculation led to :
7. Ne6 fxe6 8 Bxh6 gxh6 9 Qa5+ Kf8 10. Bxe6 Qd8 11. Qxa6++

After 8... Rb8 white will simply play Bxe6, with a much superior position.

If black moves 7... Qa5+ white will respond 8. Bd2 and now black loses his knight on a6 due to the threat of Nxg7+ , Bxa6.

Would Ne6 be winning? I think so...

Dec-23-03  nateinstein: Sorry, I did mean 11.. Qb5, not Qb6. Sorry for the confusion.
Dec-23-03  nateinstein: <talchess2003> I also thought of 7. Ne6. I do think that that has winning chances as well as you noted in your continuation. I just think the bishop move is more direct.
Dec-23-03  Dick Brain: My solotion was the same as the one in the game except I finished with 12 Na3. I didnt even consider 7. Ne6 although it looks interesting.
Jun-05-06  JonONeill: That's brilliant.
Jun-05-06  weev: 6. a4 was a great move, getting the trap ready.
