|Apr-05-04|| ||ToTheDeath: A stunning game.
Some key variations:
If White tries 19. Kf1, then ...Re4! 20 Bxd6 Rde8 21. f3 Re1+ 22. Rxe1 Re1+ 23. Qxe1 dxe1=Q+ 24. Kxe1 cxd6, and black emerges with an extra pawn, although maybe this was white's best chance to draw(!).
If 21. Qd3 instead of f3 then ...Rxf1+ 22. Qxf1 cxd6 23. f3 Re1 24. Kf2 Rxf1+ 25. Rxf1 Bd5!
22 Qf4? loses. The best defense was 22 Bf4! Then 22 ... Bc4! 23. Bxc4 d1=Q 24. Bd3 Rxf1+ 25. Bxf1 Re2 and White is alive.
Black missed a win with 25... Rg1! Then either 26 Bd1 Rexg2+ 27. Kh3 Bf1! or 26, Kxg1 Bxb3 and 27... d1=Q+.
26. Qd6? is white's final error. He had to try 26. Bd1! Then Rxg2+ 27. Kh1! ( 27. Kh3? Be6!! with the threat of 28.... Rh2+ 29. Qxh2 f4#.) Rgf2 28. Kg1 (28. Bxe2 Rxe2 29. Bb8 Kd8 ) Rg2+ 29. Kh1.
White finally resigned because 31. Qf8+ Kxc7 32. Qc5+ Kb7 and Black wins.
An absolutely amazing combinative display by Planinc.
|Mar-12-05|| ||popski: Excellent game!! |
|Nov-12-05|| ||JohnBoy: In <ToTheDeath>'s 21.Qd3 line above, I don't see why ...Rxf1+ 22.Qxf1 cd6 23.f3 Re1 24.Kf2 Rxf1+ 25.Kxf1 Bd5 merits . Cannot white just play 26.Ke2, take the advanced pawn, and make black prove that the K+P ending is a win? With black's pawn structure, this will not be an easy task.|
|Aug-30-06|| ||ToTheDeath: JohnBoy, I think you're right. I played around with Fritz for a while and did not find a winning line. White will move his king to d4, advance the pawn to b4, and there's no way for black to make progress. The extra doubled pawn is too weak.|
|Nov-16-06|| ||think: Crazy! Why did white never take the d pawn?
|Nov-16-06|| ||Gowe: <think> What do you mean? when? For example: If 19.Bxd2 Bxg3 and white is totally winning|
|Nov-16-06|| ||thegoodanarchist: This is the kind of game that would have spectators gathered 'round in amazement|
|Nov-16-06|| ||ray keene: i was present when this game was played
we were up on a stage and i dont recall there being many spectators present
in fact it made less of a splash than one wd expect tho of course its an incredible game
|Nov-16-06|| ||syracrophy: <ray keene> Nice! =) I must think that you were more excited than us by watching this great game when it was been played. What a great luck of GM =P|
|Nov-16-06|| ||ray keene: i annotated this game in my book dynamic chess openings still in print see www.hardingesimpole.co.uk tho of course it being 1975 i did it sans computer assistance|
|Nov-16-06|| ||baggio: Hi!
I do not have a chess program, but could someone please check this line for wihte: 16Qc7+,Kc7 17.Bf4+ and now black can play:17...Kb6 or something.
Cant wait to get your opinion.
|Nov-16-06|| ||PolishPentium: It seems to this humble analyst (yeah, right!!^^), that many of White's future problems would have been eliminated with the simple, if hardly glamorous, 9 Qxd4. It is, after all, the offending d-file Black pawn (and its advanced progress towards promotion) that leadd to much of W's torments...|
|Nov-16-06|| ||syracrophy: <ray keene> It's very nice to have a great GM between us! =) In fact, I would like your opinion about the Marshall Gambit in the Ruy Lopez, since I have been crushed two times with that gambit (go to Christian Abel Ramirez and watch my loss in page 7) Any suggestion?|
I hate it! 1.e4 e5 2.♘f3 ♘c6 3.♗b5 a6 4.♗a4 ♘f6 5.0-0 ♗e7 6.♖e1 b5 7.♗b3 0-0 8.c3 d5 9.exd5 e4!

Bye> This line does not work for white; it really suggests kb6 and evaluates this as -6,50|
|Nov-16-06|| ||ray keene: my advice is always avoid playing against the marshall gambit-there are many ways of doing this-see for example the kasparov v short match of 1993, also a hydra v adams game from last year|
|Nov-17-06|| ||thegoodanarchist: <ray keene: my advice is always avoid playing against the marshall gambit-there >|
Unless you are JR Capablance playing against the inventor :)
|Nov-17-06|| ||baggio: I see how about next countinuation from move 16 so number one is move 17:
3.Bf4-e3+ Kb6-a5 (instead of moving king back
on the same place)
4.Ne4-d2 Qe8-g6 (white searching for mate)
6.Be3-a7 Bf8-d6 (whites bishop does not want
to be cut of the diagonal by advancing black pawn b4-b5)
7.a2-a4 b5-b4 (now white starts a lethal attack)
9.Nd2-b3+ Belive it or not check mate!
|Nov-17-06|| ||kevin86: An unusual queen sac-it almost looked like black fell into a twopenny trap-instead,it was white who chomped down the bait.|
Great "Planinc" by black!
|Apr-25-07|| ||wolfmaster: <PolishPentium> do you really think 9.Qxd4 is a good move?|
|Apr-08-08|| ||ToTheDeath: Coming back to the 21.Qd3 line discussed at the start, Rybka appears to have found a win for Black:|
21. Qd3 Rxf1+ 22. Qxf1 cxd6 23. f3 Re1 24. Kf2 Rxf1+ 25. Kxf1 Bd5 26. Ke2 d1=Q+ 27. Kxd1 Bxb3+ 28. axb3 f4 29. g3 fxg3 30. hxg3 Kc7 31. Ke2 d5 32. Ke3 Kd6 33. b4 h5 34. Kd3 Ke5 (34. Kf4 d4! ) 35. Ke3 g5 36. Kd3 h4
Just a quick analysis, maybe someone can find a draw for White. Either way a fantastic game by Planinc.

|Feb-06-09|| ||Hitokiri Battousai: omg that Planinc dude was genius.
I just saw some of the notable games he played !!!
Playing against him must give you headache
|Feb-16-09|| ||dovif: 9 Qxd4, c5 ...... c4 loses the bishop, but it does eliminate 2ps|
|Apr-08-12|| ||DanielBryant: 9.Qxd4 is an elementary blunder; White falls into the Noah's Ark Trap after ...c5.|
|Apr-16-18|| ||AuN1: False, <dovif> and <danielbryant>; e5 is not defended (no pawn on d6 or knight on c6). White can respond to 9...c5 with a check on e5, followed by c3. |
9.Qxd4 is just sub-par because white is already behind in development and it would only get worse with that continuation.
