|Jun-29-04|| ||Honza Cervenka: Pretty and instructive game. 17.Rxf6! is a typical sac of exchange worth to remember. |
|Sep-26-04|| ||DanielBryant: Pardon my ignorance, but what now? |
|Sep-26-04|| ||tpstar: <DanielBryant> Remove the Defender = if the Qc6 abandons the Pf6, White has Mate in Two with Bxf6+ & Nh6#. Therefore 23. Qf1! intending 24. Bb5 Qe6 25. Bc4 Qc6 26. Bd5 Rxd5 27. exd5 and Black cannot defend f6 anymore. Losing the exchange with 23 ... Rd6 24. Nxd6 Qxd6 leaves White a piece up. Excellent game to study. |

|Oct-23-04|| ||poktirity: What a brilliant pun :) |
|Oct-23-04|| ||crafty: 23. ... ♖g8 24. ♖c1 ♕e6 25. ♖c7 ♗a8 26. ♗c4 (eval 6.41; depth 15 ply; 500M nodes)|
|Oct-23-04|| ||Lawrence: <poktirity>, I agree, one of the best puns ever. |
|Oct-23-04|| ||kevin86: I was looking for mate at g7-not for the mate at f6! The pun is better than most! |
|Oct-23-04|| ||kbob4435: Ok, f6 has to be defended at all costs.
So why not 23. ... b5, giving another square for the Q to go to and still defend f6? If 24. Bxb5 then, Qb6 with the threat of 25. a6, and the Q is eyeing the critical and more dangerous B at b2.
I know the position is still bad for black. But Qb6 also eyes g1, allowing a later Rg8 defensive move to also be an attacking move in case the white Queen vacates her back rank for an attack on the black King.
Doesn't 23. ...b5 allow the game to go on for a while longer?
|Oct-23-04|| ||ricardolopez: <kbob4435> I think that against 23...b5 it is possible 26. Qh3, with the following Qh6 -double jeopardy: Bxf6+ and Qg7++ (26..., Rxd3 is no use) |
|Oct-23-04|| ||Shadout Mapes: Wouldn't 23.Rc1 win right away? Had I been playing as white I probably would've gotten it in sometime. |
