|Feb-29-12|| ||drukenknight: wow! those were some awesome old time stories. THanks guys. For robesone 2.26.11: have no idea at this time, back then I had some odd ideas about how to evaluate positions, hopefully I am all better now.|
Have not looked at this game in a while and wonder why did black not break the pin on his g pawn?
|Apr-26-12|| ||Llawdogg: 23 Qg6 reminds me of 23 ... Qg3! (Marshall)|
|Aug-16-12|| ||sevenseaman: 23. Qg6 is definitely redolent of the famous Marshall Q move. Here Rh3 threat stops both the White Q or N being taken any which way. There is no defense indeed.|
|Aug-16-12|| ||HeMateMe: the pun, in spanish or latin means....?|
|Aug-16-12|| ||think: <HeMateMe> It means "Queen of the Night" in Italian.|
|Aug-16-12|| ||newzild: My first thought when clicking through the game was "Aha! He's going to play 23. Qxe6 fxe6 24. Ng6+ hxg6 25. Rh3#!" But of course 23. Qg6 is more spectacular.|
|Aug-16-12|| ||HeMateMe: Pretty classy pun! I would have come up with something like "Sacked Broad Breaches Barricades".|
|Aug-16-12|| ||King Sacrificer: I enjoyed reading your chess stories. It's nice to have some oldies in here.|
|Aug-16-12|| ||sneaky pete: Every parrot loves to do the Queen of the Night:
|Aug-16-12|| ||JonathanJ: 23. Qxe6 Qxe5
|Aug-16-12|| ||shivasuri4: <JonathonJ>, that would be followed by 24. Qxe5.|
|Aug-16-12|| ||Abdel Irada: <HeMateMe>:
I presume that the pun is in Italian in honor of the victor, Rossolimo, who in spite of his Ukrainian citizenship would appear to have been of Italian descent.
(In Latin, it would be "regina noctis"; in Spanish, I believe it would be "la reina de la noche," although I'd have to check.
It would be interesting to learn how to say it in Ukrainian.)
|Aug-16-12|| ||kevin86: The ending gives black the choice of being mated with two knights or the Arabian Mate with knight and rook.|
|Aug-16-12|| ||KingV93: The pressure White brings to the kingside is incredible. I don't play the Italian game but the tactics in this game make me wanna give it a try!|
|Aug-16-12|| ||Organizer: I knew Rossolimo. He ran a chess studio in Greenwich Village, NY in the 1960s. He was a wonderful guy, and had many grandmasters visit the studio, including Bobby Fischer.
Rossolimo died way before his time in a tragic fall on a stairway.|
|Aug-16-12|| ||perfidious: <Organizer> 'Way before his time'? He was sixty-five then. Just weeks before his death I visited his studio for the first time and got demolished by the old maestro in a simul.|
Look at that impotent lump of a bishop, bereft at a8. Is that a fate which should be suffered by any self-respecting queen's bishop in an open game?
|Aug-16-12|| ||ferrabraz: In the final position black has 24...Ng5, but after 25. Nf7! Rf7 26. Qc2! looses his queen because of a back rank mate.|
|Aug-16-12|| ||backrank: Compare also to 26 Qg6!! in K Darga vs A Dueckstein, 1963|
|Aug-16-12|| ||waustad: When I saw her do this a couple of times in Wien she was several years younger and a bit trimmer.|
|Aug-16-12|| ||waustad: So was I.|
|Sep-06-12|| ||JonathanJ: <shivasuri4> stupid me...|
|Oct-05-13|| ||Oprichniki: Black's mistake came at 12. ...O-O. I've always been against castling kingside just for the sake of castling. "Castle when you must; not when you can." Black doesn't appear to have any useful ideas, so he chooses to castle.|
|Feb-28-14|| ||kereru: Qg6 is a cool move and good on him for playing it, but just about anything wins at that point, e.g. Qxe6, Rh3, Nxh7, Qf5|
As for black he doesn't seem to be a very strong player. 13...b6 is bad, and I have no idea what he was thinking when he played 20...Ne6?? (20...c5 looks like the only move).
|Aug-28-14|| ||john barleycorn: < thom0909: Not sure if I agree that 12...0-0 was the problem. I don't think you want to leave your King in the center with a Knight pinned to it.>|
13...b6 is the bad move.
|Aug-28-14|| ||thom0909: I love 23...Qc2. Yeah, I know it is futile here, but it's exactly the sort of defense I wouldn't find (not because it's futile, but b/c I wouldn't think of defending h7 *through* the White Q).|
