|Sep-26-05|| ||YouRang: Interestingly, this game could also have been called "A Knight to forget", referring to the pathetic creature on h8.|
|Sep-26-05|| ||kevin86: A NIGHT TO REMEMBER-was a movie about the Titanic;here as a pun,it has an odd double meaning. First,the white knight is heroic at d6-despite its stayed state. Also,the black knight is in a no-escape status--like the doomed ship.|
|Sep-26-05|| ||iron maiden: "A Night To Remember" was a very well-researched novel by Walter Lord. As always, the book was better than the movie.|
|Sep-26-05|| ||drmariogodrob: What about a cue from the Eagles: "What a Knight to Remember, What a Knight to Forget"?|
|Apr-12-06|| ||MorphyMatt: another example of a cool Nh1 is Piket vs Kasparov, 1989|
|May-25-06|| ||crptone: A knight to remember indeed!
That knight served an important role for black during the entire game. On the powerful h8 square, the knight controls a lot of territory, and could be used either offensively or defensively. Using the great h8 outpost square, the knight was free to maneuver all around the board, unhampered by its opponent's or its own pawns.
Reshevsky should have done more to try to restrict the mobility of this knight, otherwise he would have no chances of winning at all. This game clearly highlights the importance of finding active counterplay and good squares for your pieces.
Just kidding if you couldn't tell :O
|Jul-14-07|| ||syracrophy: A Knightmare!|
|Jan-31-09|| ||WhiteRook48: this is the worst thing that can happen to a knight|
|Feb-07-09|| ||WhiteRook48: why not 1...f5?|
|Feb-23-09|| ||WhiteRook48: trapped knight is horrible|
|Jun-02-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 27...g6 looks bad|
|May-27-10|| ||Cibator: The king's not much better off either, as long as White keeps e8 under control.|
Did Deep Purple maybe have this game in mind when making one of their biggest hits in 1971?
"Black knight is not right
I don't feel so bright.
I don't care to sit tight ... "
|Aug-18-10|| ||hstevens129: These comments seem to ignore perhaps the more significant Knight than Black's on h8 - the White Knight that remains on d6 from move 16 until the end of the game, wreaking havoc from its outpost.|
|Oct-11-10|| ||sevenseaman: A siesta for the Knight while the enemy Knight drags the Bishop over the coals.|
|Mar-26-11|| ||meppi: this knight is more like a mule when it gets to d6, so stubborn it refuses to move till the end of the game. meanwhile the black horse is locked in the stable on h8.|
i give my vote for strongest piece in this game for the horse on d6. if you look at move 17 the horse attacks 8 key squares. the black queen controls 6
|Jun-09-11|| ||nolanryan: my favorite game|
|Jun-09-11|| ||SteinitzLives: For a coffeehouse player like Treysman to be bottled up for so much of the game, this had to be particularly painful. For Reshevsky, it was a typical day at the office of positional chess.|
|Nov-02-12|| ||perfidious: An elegant exercise in strangulation as Black, a more than competent player, never gets anything going, twist and turn as he might.|
|Jul-30-13|| ||Tigranny: I've seen terrible bishops but I've never seen a knight trapped like this ever! Very funny game!|
|Jul-30-13|| ||offramp: Apart from the various songs, there were TWO films named "A Night To Remember". There's the famous one about The Titanic. That film, like many others, failed to mention that The Titanic's passengers enjoyed over a thousand miles of high class cruising before meeting the iceberg.|
The other one, less famous, is a screwball comedy, and a very good one.
In fact, and this is absolutely genuine, it was chess maestro Aleister Crowley's favourite film!
Incredible but TRUE.
|Jul-30-13|| ||TheFocus: And then there was the sleeper <A Knight to Remember>.|
|Jul-30-13|| ||TheFocus: And the one about a girl chess player's obsession with her favorite chess piece: <Into the Knight>.|
|May-04-15|| ||SpiritedReposte: A king in a prison cell with his knight.|
|May-04-15|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Look carefully--Black's Bishop is just as paralyzed as his Knight. After either 42...Bd3 or 42...Be2 (his only safe squares), 43.Bc8! and Black cannot prevent the b-pawn from promotion.|
|May-28-17|| ||Saniyat24: A night to forget...! I have seldom seem someone bottling another player like this...such domination...!|
