|Jun-23-04|| ||notsodeepthought: It's late, so apologies if I'm missing something obvious - but doesn't 127 ... Qe6 force 128 Kh4 (zugzwang), followed by 128 ... Qh6 mate? So why is the score 1-0? |
|Jun-23-04|| ||poktirity: Maybe Kakageldyev missed that to =) |
|Jun-23-04|| ||blitzkrieg: would it be possible that black forfeited the time, that is why it is 1-0? |
|Jun-23-04|| ||Anubis33: The score is in error. White resigned. Here's the full story on this fascinating "tragedy"...|
|Jun-23-04|| ||Honza Cervenka: Of course, the result should be 0-1.
Poor Moussa! It is always very bad to lose such a game and much worse when it occurs in a team contest like Olympiad.
|Jun-23-04|| ||JSYantiss: notsodeep, it is late, but you are definitely right on here. White resigned because mate is unavoidable, as you so astutely pointed out. 128...Qh6# |
|Jun-23-04|| ||killaa: Moussa must have felt like he'd run a marathon only to take a wrong turn a few steps from the finsih line! What was 86 Kd4 all about? |
|Jun-23-04|| ||morphynoman2: Maybe a tragedy, but not at all a great game. |
|Jun-23-04|| ||chessgames.com: <the result should be 0-1> Ooops, sorry about that. Anubis, thanks for posting that link. As you can see this game was not just lost once, but several times over. |
|Jun-23-04|| ||kevin86: A nice little twopenny problem at the end. Very simple,but a good lesson in zugzwang.|
White blew this one several times,especially being a knight ahead,we all should "86" his 86th move-kind of like some of my "eggs".
|Jun-23-04|| ||mack: <kilaa>
A bit like Short the other day, only he ran a marathon, was way ahead, then fell flat on his face.
|Oct-25-07|| ||Jack the turtle: I believe the move 127...Qe6 was played before white resigned - this is not showing in the score right now.|
|Sep-17-09|| ||dumbgai: This is the kind of game that would make me want to quit chess.|
|Apr-07-12|| ||NM JRousselle: It's very difficult to believe that a grandmaster would not win this with White after having a knight for a pawn in the ending.|
|Nov-20-12|| ||wordfunph: from winning to losing, sorry loss by GM Moussa.
lucky IM Kakageldyev!
