|Aug-03-04|| ||acirce: Once again, here are some annotations to this incredible game and titanic battle - http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail... |
|Sep-23-04|| ||Knezh: This game is really incredibly complicated, but unfortunately i have no time to analyze it now ,maybe later... |
|Sep-26-04|| ||Karpova: an absolutely fantastic game |
|Dec-14-04|| ||Hesam7: Both players at their best. thx <acirce> for suggesting this game on another page and for the link. <acirce> do you know in which Informator this game appeared? |
|Dec-14-04|| ||acirce: #91 it seems: http://www.sahovski.co.yu/products/... |
|Dec-14-04|| ||square dance: <acirce> has kramnik given up the berlin? i dont think ive seen him play it in some time. i thought perhaps you may have a definitive answer one way or the other. also how is your QGA coming? i just received "the queen's gambit accepted" by chris ward today! i've yet to crack it open because im watching roman's opening opening dvd's now. gotta love x-mas. ;-) |
|Dec-14-04|| ||square dance: <acirce> actually to answer my own question i see that he has used it on at least two occasions this year: dortmund and amber. so at least i can be sure that he hasnt given it up. |
|Dec-15-04|| ||acirce: <square dance> Yes, he has not given it up - we'll probably get to see it in the future as well. QGA: I received the Semkov/Sakaev book and it seems very useful. It is not encyclopaedic covering all possible lines and sublines, but quite enough. It presents improvements and new ideas leading to new evaluations of old lines. Inspiring. It is sometimes a little hard to read because it's not obvious which move belongs to which line and such - some moves appear in bold when they shouldn't, etc. |
|May-01-05|| ||you vs yourself: Who won the second game of this final?|
|May-01-05|| ||aw1988: Anand.|
|Aug-25-05|| ||pankajdaga: Ok, newbie question:
Why can't white Qxf3 on move 58.
|Aug-25-05|| ||pankajdaga: <euripides> of course! Thanks a lot!|
|Aug-25-05|| ||euripides: <pankaj> welcome. 58 Qxf3 h3+ 59 Kf1 Qxf3 and if 60 c8=Q then 60...Qd1 mate or if 60 Ke1 h2 61 c8=Q h1=Q+ 62 Kd2 Qhe1 mate.|
|Oct-13-05|| ||HardBoys: Yes, it is quite amazing Chess by
both of these strong players.
|Jan-16-06|| ||yalie: was 54.Qf3 playable?
|Aug-18-06|| ||aw1988: 54. Qf3 - just exchange the queens and play Kf7, easy win for Black.|
|Sep-28-06|| ||positionalgenius: Amazing game...what a save by kramnik.|
|Oct-30-06|| ||positionalbrilliancy: Is there nothing for black after 58...hxg4 ?|
|Oct-30-06|| ||ikipemiko: no , because of the open h vertical|
|Oct-30-06|| ||positionalbrilliancy: It should also be enough to draw no, I was looking at something like 58...hxg3 59. Qh1+ Kg6 60. c8=Q Qxe4, There's enough for black draw, no?|
|Jan-02-09|| ||WhiteRook48: what a perpetual!|
