|Apr-02-04|| ||Benzol: Rafael Vaganian is a player whose games one can study and admire. He is a class Grandmaster. See also this game
Lautier vs Vaganian, 2004 which is quite recent. |
|Jun-19-04|| ||filipecea: Yes Benzol, R. Vaganian is a great armeniam player. He is playing in the World Championship in Lybia, but he lost today. |
|Jun-19-04|| ||Gypsy: Thanks <Benzol>. Smooth strategic performance by Vaganian; delightful attack! (Unlike his loss today...:-( |
|Oct-16-12|| ||paavoh: This one should be a GOTD.|
|Oct-26-15|| ||DanielHoseano: GOTD now😁|
|Oct-26-15|| ||kevin86: White will mate after sacrificing at g8!|
|Oct-26-15|| ||Domdaniel: This is one of Raf's best - though my favourite is still his sacrificial win against Reshevsky with the French Defence: Reshevsky vs Vaganian, 1976.|
|Oct-26-15|| ||perfidious: <Dom> To this day, I am mystified by Reshevsky opening 1.e4 in the game with Vaganian, in what was surely one of the latter's finest games.|
|Oct-26-15|| ||Cheapo by the Dozen: Not that I see specific positional similarities, but in general attitude, this was more like a King's Gambit than a Queen's. :)|
|Oct-26-15|| ||mikrohaus: As much as I like this game on it's surface, it should still be SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) for any good player.|
The doubled-rooks and protected Ph7 are worth more than Q+R.
So, the loss of the Q wasn't a combination, but merely a winning exchange of units.
That's good chess reasoning.
I doubt the winner spent much time on anything but d-pawn pushes by Black and the like.
|Oct-27-15|| ||Domdaniel: <perf> - < Reshevsky opening 1.e4 ...>
I had the impression that Sammy had a prepared line against the French (complete with Kg3). Admittedly not the sort of thing he usually did, and it came badly unstuck against Vaganian.|
This is just my vague notion - I can't cite you a source for Reshevsky's prep.
