|May-11-04|| ||Taidanii: That's impressive. |
|May-11-04|| ||ajit: Cheeky!! Although well beyond me, but I love seeing such stuff first thing in the morning!! |
|May-11-04|| ||notsodeepthought: Great escape by black! I wonder if 57 Q:e8 K:e8 58 Bg3 R:a3 59 B:e5 would have enabled white to win thanks to all his kingside pawns. But I'm glad Walter grabbed the a pawn to set up Nagy's swindle... |
|May-11-04|| ||cjhasbrouck: Incredible finish. I really liked that. |
|May-11-04|| ||Minor Piece Activity: Beautiful! |
|May-11-04|| ||loudubb: New to chess here....so is it a draw because black doesnt have a legal move? Eventhough white clearly has the advantage. Is this a stalemate? |
|May-11-04|| ||Lawrence: <loudubb>, yes, that's right. Welcome to this great site from all of us. |
|May-11-04|| ||slylonewolf: Yes, a good one. Didn't manage to find the solution...that's why I'm here :-) |
|May-11-04|| ||Cerebrate2006: Heh, i should read the top that says "to win" or "to draw" more often. I stared at it for about 20 minutes trying to find the win. The line it was looking for, the stalemate, was one of the lines i looked at and was like "hey its a draw, next line" |
|May-11-04|| ||kevin86: A really good,problem-like stalemate trap. As is usual,white got very greedy with the pawn grabbing-he should have exchanged queens a few clicks back. |
|May-11-04|| ||capanegra: Finally!! I submitted this game more than a month ago, and I had lost the hope that chessgames.com would load it. Now, I am glad to discover that not only he did it, but also put it as the puzzle of the day. Thanks chessgames.com, and enjoy people!|
55….Kf8 was a malicious trap, offering the a6 Pawn, which happened to be a poisoned apple!
|May-11-04|| ||Whitehat1963: Wow, it took me a minute, but I got this one! |
|May-11-04|| ||poktirity: Beautiful. |
|May-11-04|| ||alonso666: Frustating for White, to get a draw with such oponnent move! |
|May-11-04|| ||Ed Caruthers: Has anyone tried analyzing the position after 57.Qxe8+, Kxe8? Does Black have any winning chances on the Q-side? |
|May-11-04|| ||Checkmate123: Hold up. Subtle and nice puzzle. |
|May-11-04|| ||Stormerne: Took me about a minute to see it. It makes me wonder: at what point did Black first see this? |
|May-11-04|| ||Mulfish: 57. Qxe8+ Kxe8 may win for Black. Instead of notsodeep's 58...Rxa3, 58. Kf7 restrains the white bishop and prepares queenside pawn munching. Without connected passed pawns white doesn't have much play. It's hard to advance the separated pawns before black makes a passer on the queenside. |
|May-11-04|| ||notsodeepthought: Granted, 58 ... Kf7 may be better than ... R:a3, but after 59 B:e5, I think the threat of 60 h4 may be faster than the creation of a passed pawn on the queenside for black. Might be interesting to play through it, but it's late in the day... |
|Apr-18-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 57....Rxh3+!! 58...Qe6+!!|
|Apr-18-09|| ||mig55: Nice for a drawpuzzle like this week...57..Black to play...|
|Jun-16-15|| ||SpiritedReposte: <Walter White> As in the TV show Breaking Bad, he had the white pieces, and was probably white as a ghost after that finish!|
