|Jul-21-04|| ||Honza Cervenka: Interesting miniature. 18...Rd8 looks like a mistake but after 18...Kh8 19.Qh6 Rg8 20.Ng5 Nf8 21.Bd3 black is outplayed too. If 21...Qd7, then 22.Bf4 (threatening 23.Bxh7) 22...Qxd3 23.Nxf7#. |
|Sep-30-06|| ||dbquintillion: What's white's plan if black declines the knight sac?|
|Apr-12-08|| ||KarAkter: If 16...Kh8?,then 17.Ng5 g6 18.Nfh7...and white is much better.But on 16...gf6 17.ef6 Rd8! 18.Lg5(Lh6 Nd7 19.Qe6 Nf8 is also better for black)b5 19.Ld3 Rd3 black is better|
|Jun-02-08|| ||Jim Bartle: Found this analyzed by Ftacnik in an old "Inside Chess." He considers 17...Nd7 the losing move, and spend two full pages (!) analyzing 17...Rd8.|
"The most important aspect of this line (17...Rd8) would be counterplay against white's weak back rank. White has a mindboggling array of move and ideas, but Black seems to be ready to challenge all of them."
|Jun-30-08|| ||arsen387: GM Ftacnik -- "This game simply took my breath away. I experienced fascination, awe, amazement. Lputian obviously knows how to defy gravity, he sacrifices pieces with the light touch of a genius. All his offerings were given for medium or long-term chances. Such a clear breach of common chess wisdom fascinates, and at the same time provokes. The final truth proves elusive."|
In the end the threat is 24.Qh6+ Ke7 25.Bg5+ f6 26.Bxf6+ Nxf6 27.Qf8#, spectacular!
|Feb-25-12|| ||arsen387: more than 3 years have passed, the game is still great, but it looks like 23.Qf6 with the threat Bh6+ followed by Qg7 mates a couple of sooner, if I don't miss smth|
