|Oct-03-09|| ||rmgoup: Amazing tactics, a lot of sacs
Didn't know who would win until the end, intense!
|Oct-12-11|| ||sevenseaman: Just wait until the fruit ripens and falls into your lap.|
|Oct-12-11|| ||andrewjsacks: This is what I like: a slow, maneuvering, positional game.|
|Oct-12-11|| ||austi237: Can someone explain 10. Nc3? Is it because if the black d pawn takes, white's queen takes back with winning position and if not, eventually equalizes? Thanks, first time Kibitzing :)|
|Oct-12-11|| ||andrewjsacks: It connects the rooks to threaten to win the Queen.|
|Oct-12-11|| ||andrewjsacks: I once played a game like this--but was stopped by the cops for speeding...|
|Oct-12-11|| ||Phony Benoni: The best thing about reusing a pun is that the explanation has probably been given before. Today's is a song by the rock group Steely Dan.|
Steinitz did a lot of this stuff in his younger days when he was first trying to make his name. There are various ways to finish the Black king off after 20...Kg7; I'm rather partial to 21.Qxf7+ Kh6 22.Qxf6+ Kh5 23.g4+ Kxg4 24.Rg1+ Kh5 25.Qg5#. There may be quicker.
|Oct-12-11|| ||al wazir: But what if black had played 16...Ne7 ?|
|Oct-12-11|| ||Arcturus: 10) . . . dxNc3 and 11) Ra-e1 and bye bye queenie pie !|
|Oct-12-11|| ||andrewjsacks: Black's fourth move is remarkably inventive--"sound" or not.|
|Oct-12-11|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: One curious feature of the game is 16.g3, which looks pointless until 20.Qxc7, and suddenly 20...Qd6 is no longer a check that forces the exchange of Queens.|

16...Ne7? 17.Nxc7+ Kf8;

19.Bb5+ Nc6; <[19...Rd7 20.Bxd7#]>;
20.Bxc6+ Rd7 21.Qxd7#)>;
18.Qf3 threatening mate on f7; now:
-18...Nd5 19.Bxd5 Rxd5 20.Nxd5 wins.
-18...Rd5 19.Rb1; <(19.Bxd5 Nxd5 20.Rxc2 or 20.Nxd5 also wins)>;
19...Nb4 20.Rfe1 f5 21.Nxd5 g6 22.Nxe7 wins.
-18...f6 19.Ne6+ Ke8;
<(19...Kf7 20.Nxd8+ 21.Ke8 Qa8 wins)>;
<(19...Kg8 20.Nxd8+ Kf8 21.Ne6+ Ke8 22.Qa8+ Kd7 23.Qb7+ Ke8 24.Qb8+ Kf7 25.Nf8+ Nd5 26.Bxd5+ Ke7 27.R[any]e1+ Nxe1 28.Rxe1#)>;
20.Nxg7+ Kd7 21.Rxc2 wins.
|Oct-12-11|| ||HeMateMe: Hey nineteen! Thats Aretha Franklin!|
|Oct-12-11|| ||ounos: 16. ...Qa5 would be a fun attempt at defence! Covering all obvious threats, and waiting to see if Steinitz would figure out the kill (of course he would).|
|Oct-12-11|| ||ounos: <An Englishman> indeed, good catch!|
|Oct-12-11|| ||Infohunter: <Phony Benoni: There are various ways to finish the Black king off after 20...Kg7; I'm rather partial to 21.Qxf7+ Kh6 22.Qxf6+ Kh5 23.g4+ Kxg4 24.Rg1+ Kh5 25.Qg5#. There may be quicker.>|
Indeed there is: 21.Qxf7+ Kh6 22.Qxf6+ Kh5 23.Bf7+ Kg4 25.Re4#.
|Oct-12-11|| ||Shams: The story on this page is a treat:
F Deacon vs J Robey, 1862
|Oct-12-11|| ||abuzic: <After 20.Qxc7>
20...Kg7 21.Qxf7+ Kh6 22.Qxf6+ Kh5 23.Bf7+ Kg4 24.f3#.
What if black played 16...Qd6 or 16...Kf8?
And what if white had played 12.Bxd6! cxd6;
<(12...Qxd6 13.Qxf7+ Kd8 14.Nb5 Qe7 15.Qd5+ Kc8 16.Qf5+ Kb8 17.Qxc2)>;
13.Nd5 Qd8 14.Rac1 d3 15.Qe4+ Kf8;
16.Qxd3 and the black N falls.
|Oct-12-11|| ||bengalcat47: After this poor showing in chess Deacon found his calling as the mascot and symbol for Wake Forest University.|
|Oct-12-11|| ||kevin86: The cross-exchange/sac of bishops and game 13 and 14 are unique indeed.|
|Oct-12-11|| ||BiteByBits: quite a sharp game, looks like what I would do in blitz against someone who overextends his attack..queen...lol.|
|Oct-13-11|| ||Check It Out: (1 Timothy 3:8 sq.) St. Paul impresses upon Timothy that <"deacons must be chaste, not double tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre, holding the mystery of faith in a pure conscience."> He directs further that they must <"first be proved: and so let them minister, having no crime">, and he adds that they should be the <"husbands of one wife: who rule well their children and their own houses. For they that have ministered well shall purchase to themselves a good degree, and much confidence in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.">|
How's 6 or 7 out of 9: Still eligible?

<andrewjsacks: Black's fourth move is remarkably inventive--"sound" or not.> Anderssen vs R Hein, 1869, http://studimonetari.org/edg/latex/... and http://chesstempo.com/gamedb/openin...
