|Mar-28-09|| ||capablancakarpov: Jose Sanz should be called Sanz, because is his first surname and the surname that will be used in his life. His true that in Spain motherīs surname is kept,Aguado in this case, but for practical purposes is never used, but i donīt know why chessgames.com always has had the habit of name Spanish player with two surnames ( like Paco Vallejo Pons ), when in Spain is only named Paco Vallejo and nobody other than is family knows his second surname.|
|Mar-28-09|| ||number 23 NBer: Wow. I never thought I'd see the day when Chessgames would use the word "pwned." Fantastic ending though. I wish I could play endings like that.|
|Mar-28-09|| ||hedgeh0g: Pwned indeed! Always nice to have a 1337 h4x0r GotD.|
|Mar-28-09|| ||shahjinan: ........Amazing!!!!!.................brilliant...and unbeatable:)|
|Mar-28-09|| ||kevin86: A breakaway! The c-pawn cannot be stopped by ANY means.|
|Mar-28-09|| ||AniamL: rofl, I like the name of the game.|
|Mar-28-09|| ||c o r e: pwned. :D
"All your base are belong to Jose Sanz Aguado" just doesn't roll off the tongue as nicely.
This game is really a treasure!
|Mar-28-09|| ||WhiteRook48: what kind of pun is this?|
|Mar-28-09|| ||ILikeFruits: pun for...
|Mar-28-09|| ||hellopolgar: anyone that plays world of warcraft should understand this pun:)|
|Mar-28-09|| ||zdigyigy: Its like magick!!!|
|Mar-28-09|| ||donehung: This endgame was in one of the first chess books i ever owned, i was amazed at the power of pawns after looking over it.|
|Mar-28-09|| ||whiteshark: pwned = ed!|
|Mar-28-09|| ||patzer2: Black's passed pawn combination with 31...Rxb2! would make for a good Friday or Saturday puzzle.|
|Mar-28-09|| ||PeterB: 31...Rb2! is certainly brilliant! I enjoyed the continuation very much. But does White excape with 31.a4! If then Rb2 White has pawn to a5 with a draw!?|
|Mar-29-09|| ||Benzol: Any posters post 2006 (no pun intended) checked out this games twin
Tylkowski vs A Wojciechowski, 1931 ?|
|Mar-29-09|| ||vonKrolock: In 2007 following game was published online, showing the same combination - Author: S. Lahtonen (Finland)
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.O-O Nf6 5.Re1 O-O 6.c3 d6 7.d4 exd4 8.cxd4 Bb6 9.Nc3 Re8 10.Bg5 h6 11.Bxf6 Qxf6 12.Nd5 Qg6 13.Nh4 Qg4 14.Qxg4 Bxg4 15.h3 Bd7 16.Rad1 Ba5 17.Re3 Rad8 18.Bb5 Be6 19.Bxc6 bxc6 20.Nc3 c5 21.dxc5 dxc5 22.Rxd8 Rxd8 23.Nf5 Rd2 24.Na4 Bxf5 25.exf5 c4 26.Re8+ Kh7 27.f3 c5 28.Re7 Bb6 29.Rb7 Rxb2 30.Nxb2 c3 31.Rxb6 c4 32.Nxc4 c2 33.Rc6 c1Q+ 34.Kh2 Qf4+ 35.Kh1 Qxf5 36.a3 Qb5 37.Rc8 g5 38.Kh2 Kg6 39.g4 Kf6 40.Kg3 Qd7 41.Rc5 Qd4 42.Rc6+ Ke7 43.Kg2 Qd5 44.Rc7+ Kd8 and White resigned. I can believe it's not the only example - I have one, anterior, but still unpublished...|
|Mar-29-09|| ||tivrfoa: <donehung: i was amazed at the power of pawns after looking over it.> me too.
true master piece!!!|
|Mar-29-09|| ||patzer2: <PeterB:> If 31. a4, Black still has a few tricks up his sleeve such as 31...g4 32. hxg4 Rxb2! 33. a5 Bxa5 34. Rxb2 Bxc3 -/= to with near decisive compensation (three passed pawns) for the exchange. |
Better perhaps is an earlier try with 29. Nd6 when 29...Rd8 30. Nxc4 Rd8+ 31. Kf2 Rc1 Nxb6 = to seems to give White better chances against Black's army of isolated passed pawns.
|Jun-19-09|| ||D.Observer: If Black pwned here, White had massive pwnage at S Erenburg vs D Fridman, 2005.|
|Jul-16-10|| ||sambo: If 33. Nd3 c4+ 34. Kf1 black has just enough time: 34...cxd3 35. Ke1 c2 36. Kd2 Be3+! wins, or 34...c2 35. Ke1 Ba5+ 36. Ke2 cxd3+|
|Aug-04-11|| ||50movesaheadofyou: Petrosian mentioned this endgame as having made a great impression on him.|
|Nov-20-11|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: Wonderful finish !!|
|Nov-20-12|| ||reti: Ortueta might have said this after the game: "The pawns, the pawns."|
|Jan-25-13|| ||SirChrislov: This game was anticipated by an almost identical combination played two years before in the Poznan Championship:|
Tylkowski vs A Wojciechowski, 1931
Ortueta-Sanz got all the publicity because Capablanca gave it worldwide attention in 1936. The game contains many errors. White wins quickly after 17.Qh5!, Capa said. and 29.Nd6 should have drawn, but instead the blunder 29.Nc3?? allowed it to become immortal.
