  khense: It's like white's king said "If you want anything done right, you gotta do it yourself!"
Mar-06-06  Chess Classics: Check out these two games with the same king-walk theme-Tarrasch vs Reti, 1922 and Short vs Timman, 1991.

Mar-13-06  whatthefat: <itz2000: 26..Re8
27 Kh6?, Kf8>

Wouldn't white then have:
28.Qg7+ Ke7
29.Rxe6+ Kxe6
30.Bg4+ Ke7
31.Rd7+ winning

or 30...f5 31.Nc5#

Mar-21-06  schnarre: <khense> You got that right!!
Jan-26-07  crwynn: "whatthefat: <itz2000: 26..Re8 27 Kh6?, Kf8>

Wouldn't white then have:
28.Qg7+ Ke7
29.Rxe6+ Kxe6
30.Bg4+ Ke7
31.Rd7+ winning

or 30...f5 31.Nc5#"

What about 26...Re8 27.Kh6 Kf8 28.Rg4, with (I think) a much simpler win? I don't see a real defense to 29.Rg8+ Kxg8 30.Qg7#; e.g. 28...Bxg4 29.Qg7#

Jan-31-07  whatthefat: <CRWynn>

Yes, that's probably a more elegant way to do things!

Nov-06-07  Samagonka: Like I said before, mind over matter once you are in check. It really takes bravery to turn weakness into strength. My motto is: don't panic! Think simple. Move convinced! Both on the board and in real life circumstances!
Jun-16-08  addiction to chess: "The King is a fighting piece!" - Wilhelm Steinitz This was really proven in this game.
Jul-02-08  JonathanJ: <whatthefat>

31. Re4+ wins even easier:

31. ... Kd8
32. Qf6+ Qe7
33. Rxe7 Rxe7
34. Qd4+ Kc7
35. Qxc4

31. ... Kd6
32. Qd4#

31. ... Kd8
32. Qf6+ Re7
33. Qh8+ Re8
34. Qxe8#

Dec-13-08  WhiteRook48: Why 26...Bd5??? Totally ignores the threat of Kh6 and Qg7#.
Dec-22-08  WhiteRook48: favorite King walk game
Jan-31-09  WhiteRook48: he beat the goose
May-15-09  Kinghunt: Whiterook, he doesn't have any better option. The only move that even delays the mate is 26... Qe7, but that is still no defense.
May-17-09  WhiteRook48: well, 26...Qe7... is a forced queen win
Oct-25-10  sevenseaman: Fantastic! Its like the K and the Q decided their army wasn't good enough and two of them together went to conquer a distant land on their own, leading by example.

Ironically Black Q checks only helped the White king in the right direction.

May-25-16  waustad: Considering the puns possible between the name Weenink and an opening named after Wien, I'm happy that they just came up with something else. I suspect that they merely hadn't a clue how the city is pronounced by those who live there.

White's pieces have been playing a Sicilian.

Good point/lol!

So if we move pc6 to e6 everyone would be happy.

  Honza Cervenka: 18...dxe4 was a weak move. It was necessary to play 18...Qa3+ 19.Kd1 Nd7 with very complex and quite unclear play.

  AvidChessMan: <Samagonka: .. My motto is: don't panic!> Is this on the cover of the Hitchhikers Guide to Chess? It seems that black was unprepared for the white king's daring trek.
