Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-27-04  iceysteps: "Bolt from the Blue"

At least thats what Irving Chernev called it. One of his 62 Masterpieces of Chess Strategy.

Apr-10-11  Cibator: White had to be pretty far-sighted with that final liquidation, and be sure that the P-ending was won. Only a single move in it!
Apr-29-12  zooter: There are 2 great sacrifices in this game...

18.Rxf6 removes the only defender of the black king and 27.Nxe5 has to be accepted as otherwise the pawn on d6 creates havoc

Dec-11-12  Chris1971: A really nice game by white. Yet another of my personal favorites.

  cro777: The game was played at the Belgrade Championship 1949 when Andric was still a student, right after he got the title of chess master.

Dragoslav Andric is also author of several books on chess.

  cro777: Irvin Chernev: "The most instructive games of chess ever played: 62 masterpieces of chess"

Dragoslav Andric - Dragutin Djaja

(The Championship of Belgrade, 1949)

"From the lightning-like sacrifice which initiates a threat of mate

and the further sacrifice which leads to the imprisonment of Black's king

and finally to the triumphant march of a past pawn

it sizzles with brilliant ideas."

  cro777: "In the opening, White acquires a clear advantage in position before striking the first blow. In the midgame, superiority in position enables White's lesser forces to hold the enemy in complete restraint. In the ending, White's clever simplification sweeps away all the pieces leaving a position with pawns only on the board - the easiest sort of ending to win." (Irving Chernev)
