Jan-04-10  goldfarbdj: I managed to score 18 on the Guess-the-Move -- I'd have done even better, if I'd found 23 Be7+. I'm looking and looking, and I don't see what white does after 23. ... Nxe7. LIFE Master AJ found it too obvious to put on his site. Can somebody help me please?
Jan-04-10  Marmot PFL: <goldfarbdj> Guess just 24 Rxe5 and black will lose Ne6 with check as well - 24...Kxe5 25 Re1+ etc. Good game by Polgar, and I'm sure Mamedyarov has found safer lines to play vs top players.
Jan-05-10  goldfarbdj: Now that I look at it again in light of the previous comment, I see that if 24 ... Kxe5 25 Re1+ black loses the knight on e6 with *mate*, not just check. So black has to play 24 ... c6 or Kd7, and white plays 25 Qxe6+ and then 26 Rxc5.
Jun-22-10  LIFE Master AJ: My old site (Geo-Cities) shut down, my page on the analysis of this game has moved. (See below.)

Aug-03-10  LIFE Master AJ: This game is also annotated in the book: "50 Essential Chess Lessons," by FM Steve Giddins. (Game # 3.)
Aug-03-10  LIFE Master AJ: 11.Ng5 was played by Karpov against Korchnoi in one of their World Championship matches. (It was a product of Tal's brain, believe it ... or not.)
Apr-30-11  pkkandel: where is <notyetagm>? he used to call Shakhriyar Mamedyarov "king of tactics" but i dont see even a micro element of that in this game.
May-21-11  Whitehat1963: Remains by far the longest game in the Guess-the-Move database's five hardest games. Obviously a complex masterpiece.

  kingscrusher: Great stuff
Aug-17-16  jvitray: In light of 24. Qf3+ Kc4 25. b3# throwing the Queen in the way with 24... Qe4 only prolongs.
Aug-17-16  WorstPlayerEver: Nice tactic, but it's not hard to see what happens when QxKt ;)
Dec-17-16  ACMEKINGKRUSHER: hhhhmmmmm,

Man, Woman, or Child has a GREAT DAY and it is assumed that they are CHEATING???? Not a fan or hater of Polgar! To say she is a CHEAT is so, so, WRONGO!

One of Judit's Sisters SUSAN Polgar does need to learn about FREEDOM & hijabs. WAY to Go US CHESS for their Support!

Aug-03-17  wondairfoul: Why after 11Ng5 Black dont play Qxg5,
much too simple ?
Aug-03-17  Nerwal: <Why after 11Ng5 Black dont play Qxg5, >

11... ♕xg5 was under cloud back then following Kasparov vs Shirov, 2001. Nowadays it's the opposite, 11... ♕xg5 is fine for Black and White avoids the line most of the time.

Aug-03-17  wondairfoul: Nerwal: thanks for these explanations
Aug-06-17  Iwer Sonsch: Doesn't 22.Rxe5 win so much material that it isn't in any way inferior to the game line?
Aug-06-17  Iwer Sonsch: At least, 24.Qf3+ and 25.b3 ends the game.
Aug-13-17  jffun1958: <Iwer Sonsch> if 24. ... Qe4 25. Qxe4+ Kc4 26. Qxe6+ Kd3 27. Red1+ Kc2 28. Qd2#

Sep-08-18  Caissa04: I scored 61 on guess the move because I remembered the Svidler game that started like this one.
Mar-20-19  chesstauren: Never decline the Karpov gambit!
