|Nov-07-03|| ||seoulmama: If I am someday beaten like this ( being sacced to oblivion, that is ), I think I will be very humble for the next few days. Absolutely terrifying. By the way, who annotates these games? |
|Nov-07-03|| ||Hoozits: I know that black is better, but can anyone help me with the continuation that finishes the game? |
|Nov-07-03|| ||TheAussiePatzer: Hoozits, there is no devastating finale. If it were a normal game white might try his luck (praying for a blunder) and play on, but it is correspondence. Black would not blunder, and would surely win. |
|Nov-07-03|| ||TheAussiePatzer: Okay so having checked it with fritz the devastating finale is the threatened 28...h5:|
29. Kxh5 Re4 (mate in 4)
29. Kh3 g5 (mate in 5)
Other moves after 28...h5 are mated by force even more quickly.
So, fritz says 28. Rf1 is necessary, I suppose to interpose the rook on the f file, in order to prevent mate. Of course this drops the pawn to 28... Rxh2, and white is falling apart.
So my previous comment lives up to my name!

|Nov-07-03|| ||thekleinbottle: How sound is this 5...b5 variation of the two knights for black? You don't see it very often--at least in my experience. |
|Jan-01-04|| ||refutor: <thekleinbottle> it is sound allegedly :) very, very sharp line. here's another famous correspondence example Estrin vs Berliner, 1965 i have tried it as black and i always find myself on the worse end of the complications but i can say that for a number of lines :) |
|Jul-29-07|| ||Toledo Paul: Terrible score for me. I had no idea what was going on in this game. Every move I selected lost points!|
|Nov-13-07|| ||foursteps: Can anyone tell me what is wrong with 9... Nxc6 for black?|
Could not figure this one out.
|Nov-13-07|| ||Dilbertarian: If 9... Nd4xb5 10. Qa4 with the threat of Nd6+|
|Nov-13-07|| ||Infohunter: <Dilbertarian: If 9... Nd4xb5 10. Qa4 with the threat of Nd6+>|
Here's a game wherein Black stepped right in it: B Wall vs Swaim, 1976.
In this one Black avoided the obvious threat, but lost in the end: A Borisenko vs V Yandemirov, 1991.
White's 9. Bxb5+ was dubious at best. The move 9. Ng3 leads to much more well-trodden paths.
|Nov-13-07|| ||RandomVisitor: White could have tried 16.Nc3 Nxd4 17.0-0 Bc5 18.Ne4 Bb6 19.Kh1 f5 or 0-0 and the result would have been the same.|
|Nov-13-07|| ||loftus: <Infohunter> a comment from your link to B Wall vs Swaim left by <thesonicvision> gives a link to a game where black gives up the queen and goes on to win! |
|Nov-13-07|| ||drpoundsign: seems to me white should hav forked queen rook and king to gain material and prevent castling|
|Nov-13-07|| ||nimzo knight: <dr> c6 pawn was never enprise. shows something about black's calculations.|
|Nov-13-07|| ||kevin86: Some army! While their king is sent packing into prisonhood,white's forces are left home in their beds!|
Hence the philosophical question:if two rooks and a bishop are not moved-nor even FREED to move,do they even exist?
An interesting pun:did people in the Jurassic and Devonian era actually correspond with each other by putting pen to paper. (I thought pens were supposed to sign checks-and nothing else,lol) OR,were they used like darts?
|Nov-13-07|| ||zb2cr: <kevin86>,
Just to be serious for a moment, the Jurassic & Devonian periods were far before anything resembling human life emerged. Even the earliest proto-humans were tens of millions of years in the future during the Jurassic (200-145 million years past), and in the Devonian period, (410-360 million years past), life was still in the process of emerging from the sea. So, no "poison-pen" darts.
It seems to me that White avoided playing 27. Kg2 because he would be completely imprisoned by 27. ... Re2+; 28. Kf1, Rf2+; 29. Ke1, Rd8; 30. h3, Re8+; 31. Kd1, Ree2. Any move he makes to develop will cost multiple Pawns.
|Nov-13-07|| ||kevin86: <zb2cr> Nothing serious was intended in the mention of the two long-gone eras,just a massive exaggeration. People may be surprized to hear that the Devonian period was as far from the dinosaur era as the Jurassic was from ours. I believe that the common cockroach came from BEFORE both of the Jurassic and Devonian eras.|
Humans-in their present state,arrived about 100,000 years ago and historic record goes about 10,000.
|Nov-13-07|| ||playground player: Yipes! Another method of scuttling the Fried Liver Attack. Hope nobody does it to me.|
|Nov-13-07|| ||InspiredByMorphy: This game is bloody. Quite entertaining.|
|Nov-14-07|| ||Infohunter: <loftus: <Infohunter> a comment from your link to B Wall vs Swaim left by <thesonicvision> gives a link to a game where black gives up the queen and goes on to win!>|
Well, I'll be switched! Any chance that game might get uploaded to the <cg> database, <loftus>? Or maybe I should suggest that to <thesonicvision> at the other game's page.
|Sep-30-12|| ||paramount: whats wrong with 13.cxd4? please|
|Sep-30-12|| ||Phony Benoni: <paramount>: After <13.cxd4>:|

Black has mate in three: <13...Nd3+ 14.Kxe2 Qxe4+ 15.Kd1 Nxf2#>.
|Sep-30-12|| ||vinidivici: <Phony Benoni> Good line.
12...Be2 is really a good thing for POTD!|
