|Aug-15-04|| ||Eggman: White's Queen checks, maneuvering the Queen to where she can support the decisive blow, remind me of the game J Barry vs Pillsbury, 1889, where White announced mate in 13 following Black's 31st move. |
|Aug-15-04|| ||tweetypie: <Eggman> Great link. It's the same idea - maneuvering the queen into a position to win material. In the Barry game for a pin, in the above game for a discovered check. Good stuff. |
|Aug-15-04|| ||vonKrolock: The successfull attack in this game is an excellent example of the 6.Ng3 variation launched in two "Wertheim T", New York 1951 games: Evans-Fine (4th Round) and Reshevsky-Santasiere (8th)]. The 9.d5 line was showed notably in Spassky-Hübner from München (Munich) 1979, i mean Spassky vs Huebner, 1979 and a notable game whith the 9.0-0 line showed by <ray keene> in his detailed notes is A Lombard vs Korchnoi, 1978 |
|Aug-15-04|| ||Calchexas: Excellent game by GM Keene. Apart from 1.d4??, which overextends the d-pawn and is theoretically losing, his play seems completely sound. (Better is 1.Nf3!!) ;) |
|Aug-15-04|| ||Saruman: Calchexas can you prove that? :-) |
|Aug-15-04|| ||Calchexas: No, of course not. Can you prove that? |
|Aug-15-04|| ||kevin86: I once read a story about a game where both players make an opening series of knight moves-all with exclamation points!! In the story-is a truth:pawn moves are all weakening,and irreversable. Calchexas states the same idea.|
In the movie:WARGAMES-"global thermonuclear war--the only winning move,is not to play.How would you like to play a nice game of chess?"
|Aug-15-04|| ||Calchexas: 1.Nf3! Nf6! 2.Nc3! Nc6! 3.Ng1! Nb8! 4.Nb1! Nc8!! 1/2-1/2 "Thank you for an enjoyable game." |
|Oct-09-04|| ||Catfriend: Actually, the final position is quite equal, with play for both sides|
|Oct-20-04|| ||morphy234: Black lost his queen. |
|Nov-02-04|| ||Catfriend: I didn't speak about Mr.Keene's game, I meant the post by <Calchexas>!|
|Nov-03-04|| ||who: In the notes for move 9. why not 12.Qxa6? |
|Nov-03-04|| ||ray keene: qxa6 nc5 thats the point |
|Nov-23-08|| ||piever: Very nice game, with excellent annotations... Does anybody know what book are they from?|
9. a3 is a very interesting idea. In the game white gets a (very) improved Saemisch variation of the Nimzo Indian, but I'm not sure that white is better after 10...exd4 11. cxd4 Nxd4 12. Bb2 c5 13. Bxd4 cxd4 14. 0-0: Black might try to exploit the c4 weakness or even provoke f3 by exerting pressure on e4... I'm not sure I would prefer white after this, what am I missing?
Anyway after 10...d6 white's play seems to be simply perfect and black is crushed...
