|Apr-29-04|| ||jaime gallegos: as other games on this tournament Moro made a rook sac, attack with his bishops and destroyed the castled enemy king ! bravo ! |
|Apr-29-04|| ||Hanada: A lot of people have said Moro has made his name cracking the heads of 2500-2600 rated players but I think this player is for real. He is original, and seems to have a boundless amount of talent. This is just the sort of player that chess needs. I don't know if this player has what it takes to become w.c. but I do not think he is that far off. |
|Apr-30-04|| ||PizzatheHut: I need some help from the Sicilian players out there. What was the purpose here of 9. Qe2? It looks similar to play in the Velimirovic attack, but I don't understand it there either. Thanks for the help. |
|Apr-30-04|| ||refutor: in this position, it's because he wants the rook to control the d-file after castling instead of the queen, keeping an eye on the backward pawn. also (although hindsight is 20:20) i'm pretty sure he pictured the position after 12.Qe1 when he played 9.Qe2...this allows his queen to get out to the kingside on the lightsquares. i could be totally confused, but i'm pretty sure that's the idea behind 9.Qe2 (as opposed to a move like 9.Qd2 for instance) |
|May-04-04|| ||PinkPanther: There is analysis of this game at chessbase.com as well as the game between Morozevich and Bologan. |
|May-04-04|| ||Tigran Petrosian: If you think about it, the sacs were kind of obvious. I mean a rook check on g1 is lethal, so you sac a rook ro open the g-file on h5, then you sac a bishop on b5 to clear a path to g1 for the other rook. Such a motif is called line clearence. |
|May-05-04|| ||ruylopez900: <Pizza> As far as I can tell Qe2 was meant to give the Rook a semi-open file after 0-0-0. Though I must admit I don't play this, against the classical I play the Richter-Rauzer Attack. |
|Nov-29-04|| ||aw1988: <resty> How long did you think of that phrase?? HILARIOUS! |
|Dec-29-04|| ||morostyle: seems that opposite castling with white then a pawn crush on blacks kingside destroing the castle still works i should really think about that opposite castling. iam suprised that this works on such a level i mean aleeksev was 2612 and he didnt saw that unbelievable i mean this stuff can happen to hoppy player or whatever but not a professional come on but besides that great FORCED play by moro no doubt hey thats why i got my name moro is the man hehehe |
|Dec-29-04|| ||morostyle: 19 Rh2 what a move!! brilliant securing the c2 for soon to come storm by black on c file but not deadly then BOOM the start of destroying the black king moro is incredible he saw the win on 14 !!!! and he knew its FORCED incredible iam shocked how many moves gm can see how can i increas my memory seeing all this crazy "forced" i repeat forced wins resolving the puzzle doesnt help much and besides that the really secret is getting in that positions where u can find a forced win so many moves ahead iam shocked and impressed chess made me insane more and more and how deep it is |
|Jan-07-05|| ||aw1988: Regarding my previous post-- over-reaction. |
|Dec-28-07|| ||apexin: 23.h6 what a brillant move.|
|Feb-04-08|| ||arsen387: Is there a forced mate if black didn't play 25...Kxg7?? I don't see why black took the pawn.|
|Feb-04-08|| ||Eyal: <arsen387: Is there a forced mate if black didn't play 25...Kxg7?? I don't see why black took the pawn.>|
Black had to defend against Qxg6 with the toal collapse of his position, and 25...Bf7 26.Qh6 or 25...Kf7 26.Rg2 wouldn't help. Btw, it seems that he might have had some chances to hold on - certainly longer than in the game - with 26...Nf8 or Kf7; only 26...Bf7? allowed Moro the immediate forced win (by a very nice mating combination) that some people were raving about in previous posts.
|Jul-18-08|| ||Check It Out: I don't understand the 11. Nc5 maneuver. It just seemed to waste time - he brought the knight right back to b3. Is there a deeper reason for it? |
19. Rh2 is a nice move. I considered f4 or Bh3, but the rook move accomplishes so much. Does anyone see problems with those alternatives? I'm not that good. f4 maybe weakens the e4 pawn too much, but seems to threaten a pawn avalanche.
The position after 26. h6 is beautiful, with both side's pieces poised to explode on the opposing king.
Morozevich is my favorite player right now.
|Feb-22-09|| ||schroedingers cat: The position after whites 23rd move looks really funny :)|
|Apr-05-09|| ||WhiteRook48: why do they make these nonsense puns? Consider the recent "A rose is a rose is a Moroze"
Oh, come on!|
|Oct-15-11|| ||tacite: <Check It Out> I maybe wrong, but Moro's 11. Nc5 was meant to move the black Queen from d8, allowing white's black bishop more manoeuvre.|
But then again, only Moro could give us the answer.
|Jun-19-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Guess-the-Move Final Score:
Morozevich vs E Alekseev, 2004.
YOU ARE PLAYING THE ROLE OF MOROZEVICH.
Your score: 55 (par = 46)
|Jan-17-13|| ||alcoholkhine: por correspondencia estoy jugando esta partida, mi rival acaba de responderme con 12...Bxf1!? a lo que sigue forzadamente 13. Rxf1 (si 13. Qxf1? Db6 )|
|Sep-07-17|| ||tpstar: It is amusing to see the Black Bishop just sit there on c3 while Morozevich casually continues his Kingside attack.|
In retrospect, the Clearance sacrifices 28. Rxh5! & 29. Bxb5! gaining the g file may seem straightforward but not so easy at all in real time.
<A lot of people have said Moro has made his name cracking the heads of 2500-2600 rated players but I think this player is for real. He is original, and seems to have a boundless amount of talent. This is just the sort of player that chess needs.> Aight.
|Sep-15-17|| ||al wazir: I don't understand why black played 26...Bf7 instead of 26...Rh8.|
|Sep-15-17|| ||Sneaky: <al wazir> 26...Rh8 27.Qe7+ and Qxe6|
|Sep-15-17|| ||paavoh: <Sneaky: 26...Rh8 27.Qe7+ and Qxe6>|
Black has 27. -Bf7 to block the check so the B is not lost, at least not immediately.
|Sep-15-17|| ||Sneaky: Oh, right you are. But still, even with Rxd6 as a follow up, it still looks ugly.|
