Jan-27-04  GoodKnight: Can anyone tell me why black resigned here?

One pawn down - surely not a good enough reason to resign?

  Catfriend: He's dead! 16..♕d6 17.♗:g5; 16..h3 17.g3 ♗h6 18.♗f5 ♔b8 19.c4 In all the variations, white's advantage is a serious one.
Jan-27-04  GoodKnight: Oh...

Thanks, Catfriend. I should've checked properly.

  Catfriend: That's ok :)
It took me a computer to find it for sure!
Jan-27-04  GoodKnight: Ok - that makes me feel a bit better!

By the way, NN vs Greco, 1620 might be a game you want to include in your collection.

Jan-27-04  GoodKnight: Few more...

Krause Ch vs Costin, 1914
A Gibaud vs F Lazard, 1924

Jun-22-06  The17thPawn: <Catfriend> - Shamkovich and Schiller give a possible saving line for black in their tandem book World Champion Tactics. Starting with 16...h3!? 17. Bf4,hxg2 (18.Rxe7,gxf1(Q)19.Bxf1,Bxe7 20.Bg3,Nc5! 21.dxc5,Bxc5+ 22.Bf2,Bxd5 23.c4,Bxf2+ 24.Kxf2,Rxh2+ 25.Kg3,Rxd2 26.cxd5,R8xd5 with slightly better prospects for black.) The main line is 18.Kxg2,gxf4 19.Rxe7,Bxe7 20.Nf3,Nf6 21.c4,Rdg8+ 22.Kh1,Nh5 with serious counter play for black. Granted black has to find these hidden resources and De vere obviously did'nt but resignation was not forced at move 16.

  Eric Schiller: <17> The WCT book has been reissued as part of Killer Chess Tactics, which combines WCT and World Champion Combinations in one updated, revised volume.
Jun-23-06  The17thPawn: <Eric Schiller> - Thanks for the update and the helpful publications. Tactics have never been the strongest point of my play but your books help.
