|Sep-25-07|| ||aazqua: Those knights sure are tricky the way they move in L's and all! How is an old time chess player to keep up with all of those horsey shinanigens! A perfectly acceptable loss by either a Frnech near champ of the 1920's or a newbie club duffer from today's era.|
|Sep-25-07|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: <aazqua>, this is a very fine find. It would appear that M. Duchamp brought some Dadaist tendencies to the chessboard. If 27...g7-g6 is sound, Duchamp pulled off a defensive brilliancy worthy of Petrosian. The big question is what happens after 31.Ng5,f5!; 32.h4?! Duchamp's counter-sacrifice of the Exchange hits White like lightning, and would fit well in any textbook.|
|Mar-02-08|| ||cuppajoe: A dubious little gem of a sac, that 27...g6. My engine thinks that the accurate continuation is 31. f5! gxf5 32. Nd6 with a fair-sized advantage to white. The main advantage is probably psychological, though. How is one supposed to calculate properly when handed a position like that?|
|Mar-02-08|| ||crwynn: I thought White's 13th and 14th moves were the most interesting in the game, really. It looks crazy to put your pawns on white squares only to swap your nice dark-squared bishop for that worthless thing on b6, but when you think about it, it's very hard for Black to put his pieces anywhere nice to exploit these "weak squares" on account of White's powerful knights, while Black has no q-side pawn breaks. Or does he? Maybe somehow he can get ...b5 in. In any case it looks to me as if Black played for tricky stuff after that, and should have lost.|
This Jan Kleczynski only has 5 games in the database, 3 from the 1920's and 2 games against Winawer from 1868 and 1871 - I wonder if he was really the same player?
He beat Winawer both times, but I wonder how serious these games were, since Winawer dropped a piece in a very simple way, in one of them.
