|Aug-17-03|| ||morphynoman2: 23. e6!, 24. Nd4! |
|Sep-24-03|| ||Tigran Petrosian: The board was on fire! |
|Nov-22-03|| ||drukenknight: A nice winawer from Morozovich w/ early h4. |
|Nov-22-03|| ||refutor: this is a nice winawer by morozevich...i would like all my winawer games to go this way ;) i guess you can play h4 v. all the main lines? |
|Nov-23-03|| ||AdrianP: <dk> Yeah, this was one of the games I had in mind re my post on the French Classical. It's one of my favourite games of this year. I particularly like 10. Rh4!? ... talk about offending against classical principles! |
|Mar-17-04|| ||steven18: Why did black play 26...Nge7? Why not 26...Nce5? |
|Mar-17-04|| ||steven18: Also 27...Qb8 looks weak. Why not 27...Nxa5! 28.Rxc8+ Bxc8... not such a pretty game by white when you see all the screw ups black played. Anyone with more knowledge then me can you refute the line I wrote? Honza.. anyone?? |
|Mar-17-04|| ||AdrianP: <steven18> I have some chessbase annotations - 27... Qb8?? is a blunder, even though it looked tempting - Moro's finish was not obvious. The position after your line 27...Nxa5! is unclear, but Pelletier is certainly in the game.|
26...Nce5 was also better than the text, but again 26...Nge7 was not implausible.
Most interesting though, it appears, that Morozevich missed a clear win earlier with 25. Rxg5!! Stohl gives reams of analysis, which I won't post here.
You can find some light annotations of this game here: http://www.chessnetwork.com/ncn/b/g...
The fact that black could have defended does not, for me, detract from the attraction of this game... it's not often that you see such committed attacking from a top-10 GM.
|Aug-10-04|| ||Whitehat1963: Where to from the last position? |
|Aug-10-04|| ||who: black moves his queen somewhere. 31.Rb8+ Kf7 32.Rxd7... and then wins the knight after that, and can at least trade one rook, leaving white with no hope |
|Nov-09-04|| ||Bluelapis: It's a very fantastic combination.. Moro. 20. Ba6! is a sign for being in danger of king. |
|Sep-14-07|| ||Karpova: Pelletier:
14...g5?! (<pretty careless>)
20...bxa6? (<20...Bxg4 21.Rxb7 Bxf3!>)
21.Qxa6+?! (<both were down to 10 min already. 21.e6! was better>)
24...Bd7? (<24...Nge5 and perpetual>)
25.Ba5+? (<25.Rxg5!! and 25...Nge5 is black's best chance>)
26...Nge7? (<26...Nce7! wins>)
27...Qb8?? (complete collapse. 27...Nxa5 28.Rxc8+ Bxc8 29.Rg3 Kd8 and black is better though white still does have chances>)
|Jun-06-08|| ||ezmerin: Hard to believe Black had accepted piece offer on a6 instead of capturing on g4. Even if he had to give up his Queen during defensive struggle, I think he would get enough compensation.|
It's strange that Pelletier tries to challenge Morozevich in French Defence. Isn't Russian the specialist in this opening?
|Aug-16-08|| ||just a kid: A messy but fun game!Too bad there were blunders from both sides though.|
|Apr-05-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Morozevich heated the board!|
