Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-09-03  Diggitydawg: Interesting how white's light squared B never moves(12.Be2 could have developed it). The lack of development eventually costs white the game.
Oct-09-03  drukenknight: every time I see that pawn on b4 I am thinking "desperado". This goes back to that line I posted a couple of weeks ago.

I'm thinking 17 f5

Oct-09-03  Brian Watson: hmmm . . .
17.f4 Ng4 18.Qe2 bxc3 then
(i) 19.Qxg4 e5 winning for black
(ii) 19.Bxc3 f5 20.ef ef 21.Qxe7 Nf2 22.Rxd6 would win for white

But does the simple 17.f4 bxc3 18.fxe5 lead to any obvious advantage for white?

Oct-09-03  drukenknight: it just confuses you more, so "yes" the advantage is confusion.
Oct-09-03  Brian Watson: 17.f4 bxc3 18.fxe5 R(a)b8 19.b3 Qa5 followed by ..R(f)c8 and ..Qa3
Oct-10-03  dr gogusetti n rao: I missed the pun -if a pun it was- in 'Everybody Wang Pin Tonight!' Is that an Americanism? It would be interesting to know what it meant.
Oct-10-03  Tecumseh: I think it's from a 1970's American pop song that went something like:-

'Everybody have fun tonight
Everybody Win Chung tonight'

I have no idea what this might mean though.

  Sneaky: click on the audio sample of the 1st song.
Oct-11-03  Alchemist: Excellent attack strategy (b pawn advance) against the queenside castle, setting up the rook pseudo-sacrifice if white takes the oncoming b pawn advance with the a pawn. i'm sure to use it in one of my next few otb's. And I also really like the initial Nf6. It's not really all that remarkable in itself but it seems to have a touch of bravado on it. The sidelines with dxc5 also look interesting, leaving black with a knight on d6 or queen on c5, which will certainly merit some of my study time.

Does anyone have opinions/advice on this sideline? I'd appreciate any feedback I could get on this line, which seems like it might be fairly sharp.

  WannaBe: Apparently a re-run of previous game of the day? Oct 10th 2003?? =)

<Diggitydawg> I don't think the h1 rook moved either...

I thought it was "Everybody's Kung-Fu fighting". (-:
Dec-16-05  gchristopher: If you ask me (which nobody did), white is really really! lost for not taking the queen exchange. After the queen exchange, displace or take the black knight on e5 and proceed to look for a draw (and even a slight advantage by doubling black's two center pawns). But nuhhh! White has to play to win in sicilian.
Dec-16-05  EmperorAtahualpa: <gchristopher> don't worry if nobody asked you, we're on a discussion site after all. :)
Dec-16-05  EmperorAtahualpa: <> Is this really a re-run of a previous GOTD? :s Seems odd.
Dec-16-05  dakgootje: nice game, however i have the strange feeling i saw this game some days ago too...

  kevin86: Do I have the conclusion right? 28 bxc3 ♖b1+ 29 ♖xb1 ♗xc3+ 30 ♖b2 ♕xb2#

or 29♖xc3 ♖xb2 30 ♗e2 ♗xc3 followed by a deadly discovered check! Or is there anything better?

Dec-16-05  notsodeepthought: Or 30 Be2 Rb1+ (which essentially goes back to your first line). If instead 30 Ne2 to protect the rook in c3, then 30 ... R:e2 wraps it up. At this point of the game, black would have to go out of her way "not" to win.
Premium Chessgames Member We've had a few reruns this week because we've been so busy with the FIDE World Cup. A fresh run of chess puns start next week!
Dec-16-05  Shubes82: best pun ever
Dec-16-05  Jim Bartle: Chessgames repeating its puns??? Say it ain't so!
Dec-16-05  technical draw: Probably cause most puns with Wang Pin will be X rated.
Dec-16-05  Jim Bartle: In the 90s the Denver Nuggets tried an interesting system of play, basically hoisting up any shot as quickly as possible, mostly 3s, and then sort of let the other team score 2s. (Didn't work.) This game reminds me of that, both sides going straight for the enemy king, no thought of defense, until it's too late for white.

  patzer2: <Kevin86> Looks like you have it right. With the removing the guard tactic 27...Rxc3!!, via deflection, Wang Pin forces 28. Rxc3 Rxb2! -- removing a second guard and setting up a decisive discovered check threat.

Premium Chessgames Member
  patzer2: Instead of 12. Qf2, perhaps more solid would have been 12. Nxc6 bxc6 13. Be2 developing and keeping White's options open in both the center and on the Kinside.

IMO White's losing mistake was 22. Qe3? . Instead, 22. axb3 Rxb3 23. Be2 appear to give Shahade reasonable chances of holding the draw.
