|Dec-11-04|| ||cade: Beautiful, really beautiful! I love how the 4 black squares around the black King are occupied by black pieces blocking his escape, while the 4 white squares are attacked by white pieces giving the mate. This is art, not sport. |
|Dec-23-04|| ||Whitehat1963: A brilliant finish! |
|Jan-29-05|| ||patzer2: Almira's Queen sacrifice with 34. Nxd5!!, with a little help from her opponent, leads to a quick mate. |
Although I haven't run it through the computer yet, it seems to me that 34...Nxd5!? 35. Bxd5+ Kf8 might force White to work a bit harder to justify the Queen sacrfice.
|Jan-29-05|| ||patzer2: Perhaps the Borg's most frequent line of dialogue on the TV series Star Trek, "resistance is futile," might be appropriate after 34...Nxd5!?|
Play could continue 34...Nxd5!? 35.Bxd5+ Kf8 36.Qe4 Qd7 37.Bc6 Qd8 38.Qxe5 Rf7 39.Qe2 Bf6 40.Rfe1 Kg7 41.Qe4 Rhf8 42.Qg6+ Kh8 43.Be4 b5 44.axb5 Qb6+ 45.Kh1 Qxb5 46.Qxh6+ Kg8 47.Bd5 Bg7 48.Qg6 Kh8 49.Bxf7 Qxb2 50.d7 Qf6 51.Rd3 Qxg6 52.Bxg6 Kg8 53.d8Q a5 54.h6 Bxh6 55.Qe7 Bg7 56.Rd7 Rf7 57.Qxf7+ Kh8 58.Qxg7#
|Jan-30-05|| ||offramp: This is a brilliant finish. If she had played 37.Rd6 against me I would have sat there wondering what to play next - when I played through the game I didn't see that it was a mate! |
|Jun-20-06|| ||Whitehat1963: What an AMAZING finish. BEAUTIFUL!!|
|Jul-18-06|| ||stanleys: I would like to see Almira's smile after she mated her opponent - perhaps something like this:http://www.poker.fr/images/photos/2...|
|Aug-27-07|| ||meijgia: According to chessbase.com it is Almira Skripchenko-Fressinet nowadays (http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...; August, 27, 2007).|
|Oct-27-08|| ||Udit Narayan: Every game tells a story...
Fressinet played this game in the French Championships and, after succumbing to a brilliant sacrifice by his opponent, forgot about the loss...
Fast-forward 5 years to 2007: as he browsed his old game scores, the Frenchman glimpsed over a game which impressed him as much now as it did on that fateful day in 2002. Evidently, Fressinet regarded his opponent as an exceptional talent and, thirsting chessical revenge, invited her to play some blitz games in his kitchen. Hence begun a flowering romance...
|Apr-12-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 35 Nc7+ MAYBE|
|Sep-13-11|| ||Domdaniel: I played the same line of double fianchetto stuff against my girlfriend once, and also got mated.|
|Feb-17-12|| ||Penguincw: Wow. She beat her future husband in their only moment.|
|Feb-17-13|| ||howlwolf: very nice game from the potd.|
|Nov-13-15|| ||morfishine: A Happy Finish|
|Nov-13-15|| ||evilkenevil: ...and a happy ending!...|
|Nov-13-15|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Serious question, believe it or not. If a married couple playing in a Swiss system tournament find themselves scheduled to play each other, will the tournament director a) have no choice but to let the pairing stand, or b) have the option to change the pairings, or c) be required by FIDE rules to change the pairing?|
Thanks in advance for your response.
And that is one spectacular combination, BTW.
|Nov-13-15|| ||thegoodanarchist: <morfishine: A Happy Finish>|
And the supposed pun is not even a pun! You forgot to point that out
|Nov-13-15|| ||kevin86: A nice game, but a bad pun!|
|Nov-13-15|| ||Ferro: Me quiero casar con una puta|
|Nov-13-15|| ||malykotek: Hi everyone
Can someone explain 12 h4 ?
|Nov-13-15|| ||Ferro: nice game, of off|
|Nov-13-15|| ||JointheArmy: Wow, amazing attack.|
|Nov-13-15|| ||Domdaniel: <an Englishman> It's (a), let the pairing stand -- the Swiss pairing system does not recognize marriage or other interpersonal arrangements.|
If you think about it, once changes are allowed - whether for marriage or other reasons - then the system starts to collapse.
|Nov-14-15|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: <Domdaniel>, thanks for the information.|
|Jun-02-16|| ||The Kings Domain: Attractive gal, and a fine Chess player too.|
