|Jan-20-05|| ||lronTigran: I very gutsy decision to keep playing (instead of taking the perp. check); however, play until about move 30 is forced and easy to see, so don't give black too much credit for his courage. Another obvouis reason for playing on is that black was more than 100 points higher than white (that's much when you're over master). The final position is also very nice. |
|Jan-20-05|| ||iron maiden: <IronTigran>, Tea Lanchava is a woman. |
|Jan-20-05|| ||Granite: Three pawns for a piece and a loose king isn't a gutsy trade, it's a clear cut way to win. The threats generated are more then enough to compensate as Tea quickly demonstates. The queen was never in danger, and the pychological effect of a sacrifice and a queen breathing on your king is always tough to meet. |
|Jan-20-05|| ||Gregor Samsa Mendel: The final position reminds me of the final position of Fischer vs Petrosian, 1971. |
|Jan-20-05|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Regardless of Bosboom-Lanchava's rating or gender, Black shows excellent foresight and judgement in the conduct of the attack. Tea passes on the opportunity to win 4 pawns for the Knight on move 22, then passes on the chance to win an Exchange on move 27, in favor of keeping the pressure on White. Mason said that the true mark of a master was the ability to eschew all the pretty, tempting attacking lines in favor of the one truly forceful one. Lasker said that when you see a move, wait, don't play--look for a better one.|
By their standards, this game is good enough for them, and that's good enough for me.
|Jan-20-05|| ||lostemperor: Definitely a woman http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...! |
|Jan-20-05|| ||Orbitkind: This is a nice interesting game; it shows every phase of the game clearly. I'm surprised black's attack was successfully defended by white, but I suppose given that black went into a winning ending, it was successfully defended. A few pins and pressure around the King seems to convert into winning advantages whatever happens. |
|Jan-20-05|| ||captcrisis: Nice link. This lady really is gorgeous. |
|Jan-20-05|| ||MindlessOne: wow, first time ive ever seen a beautiful women posing in front of chess pieces |
|Jan-20-05|| ||kevin86: A nice win by black-four pawns for a knight! Three connected passed pawns on the queenside! Wow! |
|Jan-20-05|| ||noone2: Not sure I understand white's 31 move
It looks to me like 31 N:e3 is ok for white. 31 ... R:e3 32 Q:f2 Bc5 33 35 Kh1 Rae8 36 Rg3
If 31 N:e3 Bc5 32 B:e5 B:e3 33 Rh2 and white has at least a draw
|Jan-20-05|| ||Saruman: Hilarious pun for this game;"Kaboom"! Or maybe not. |
|Jan-20-05|| ||Abaduba: Excellent game. But does anyone but me think that she's really not that good-looking? (Especially without makeup)
Not that that's a problem; most male IM's aren't much in the looks department, either. |
|Jan-20-05|| ||iron maiden: <Abaduba>, actually you're not alone. She's definitely not within my personal taste for beauty. |
|Jan-21-05|| ||patzer2: This exciting game, featuring the complex demolition of pawn structure combination starting with 19...Nxg3!!, is a tribute to Tea's Chess skills. However, part of what makes this particular game so interesting are the minor errors, outright blunders and recoveries by both players. |
