|Apr-18-04|| ||nikolaas: I really like this game. Especially the fact that the white king end at d7. Steel II. |
|Jan-25-06|| ||Timothy Glenn Forney: The King escapes the King hunt.A great swindle!|
|Jan-25-06|| ||Timothy Glenn Forney: Interesting fact: Konings means Kings in Dutch.A little ironic.|
|Jan-26-06|| ||esticles: What happens if 44. Rxf1 ?|
|Jan-26-06|| ||notsodeepthought: It must be too late in the day, but why not simply 41 e:f7+ Kf8 (not R:f7 42 Rh8+) 42 R:h7 - I mean, how does black stop 43 Rh8 mate?|
|Jan-26-06|| ||radu stancu: Hmm, crazy game... Anyway, there's nothing wrong with 41.exf7+, in fact it's the best move. Black can go for a couple of checks after the line you talked about, but runs out of them pretty soon and is still not able to stop the mate.|
And what's more, 41.Rd8+ loses to 41...Rxd8 42.exf7+ Kf8 43.Rxh7 and now black's checks will be more than just a nuisance (with a rook in play for black, and a rook less as protection for white's king) and he'll be able to disrupt white's mating net soon and go on to win.
|Jan-26-06|| ||EricCartman: <Timothy Glenn Forney> Actually "konings" doesn't means anything in Dutch. The plural of "koning" is "koningen". I know, the Dutch language is strange, and one of the hardest to learn...|
|Jan-26-06|| ||Timothy Glenn Forney: I don't know dutch but I knew Koning was king,so I figured s was plural,oh well.|
|Jan-26-06|| ||Timothy Glenn Forney: By the way <EricCartman> how do you pronounce Euwe? tnanks|
|Jan-26-06|| ||BeautyInChess: yeah, and 42. exf7 Rxf7 43. Rh8 is mate|
|Jan-26-06|| ||notsodeepthought: <Timothy Glenn Forney: I don't know dutch but I knew Koning was king,so I figured s was plural,oh well.> Good guess, but if <EricCartman> says otherwise, we'll have to respect his authoritah.|
|Jan-26-06|| ||Timothy Glenn Forney: The sad thing is my name Forney is from Fahrni which is dutch.|
|Jan-26-06|| ||sneaky pete: Hans Fahrni was a famous Dutch master and Stockholm, as we all know, is the capital of Switzerland.|
|Jan-26-06|| ||keypusher: <notsodeepthought> LOL|
|Jan-26-06|| ||Timothy Glenn Forney: Interesting I know my ancestors were Huguenots -I mean Hugenoten (he he),from Switzerland maybe we're related.|
|Jan-26-06|| ||Timothy Glenn Forney: I thought Bern was the capital Switzerland and Stockholm Sweden,LOL Sneaky pete.I almost missed that one.|
|Jan-26-06|| ||Timothy Glenn Forney: 20. Bxh5! a nice little pawn grab.|
|Jan-26-06|| ||Whitehat1963: Hilarious ending. What a powerless queen!|
|Jan-27-06|| ||EricCartman: respect my authoritha!|
|Feb-10-06|| ||Frans Konings: What a bum!
Firstly, this game is unrightfully attributed to L (Leon) Konings, while it was actually me, F (Frans) Konings who played it. If you search for F Konings you also find a (won) game of me here against no-one less the former WorldChampion Kasimdhanov (But this was Blitz).
Secondly, the moves are incorrect, I exchanged rooks on move 22 (22. R*h8, R*h8 is missing in the game above).
Btw, "Konings" in Dutch means as much as "son of a king". In dutch the "s" at the end of a name often means "son of". The plural of Koning is indeed "Koningen"
|Feb-14-06|| ||Timothy Glenn Forney: I hope chessgames changes it to the real game.|
|Mar-02-06|| ||Timothy Glenn Forney: Great chessgames fixed this brilliant game!Now it makes sense,The final position and endgame are just classic.|
|Jan-16-09|| ||WhiteRook48: I didn't know "Koning" meant "King" until today. Interesting.|
|Oct-07-09|| ||GrahamClayton: 50...f5+ 51.e8 b5+ 52.d7 - the White King has occupied the Black throne!|
