Sep-26-11  ToTheDeath: What a game! This guy was on another level.
Apr-25-12  LoveThatJoker: <ToTheDeath> Oll was truly on another level, man. Well said! What a tremendous game!

  xthred: Cool!
May-02-12  rilkefan: Not really impressed with black's defensive tactics here. 32...Kh7 jumps out as a waste of tempo in a critical position, for example. And checking with stockfish I see it thinks the move throws away a two-pawn advantage (compared to ...Rf7; other better natural moves I checked include Ra4, Ra2, Ra1+). 31...Kh8 was also strong for black, and a few other moves around there, but 32...Rf7 was critical.

Well, actually, a lot of what I thought was dithering was just black being lost after 34...d2 and 35...Qc4 (instead 34...Ra1/35...b4 was equal and 35...Ra4 in the game line held white to about 0.7 instead of 2).

May-02-12  vinidivici: i really blank about this game. so sharp and deep. this is hard

  sevenseaman: What a gut-crusher by Oll! Like in a balanced tug-of-war, for a long time the hankie moves only inches right or left, until the realization dawns upon you the guy was going for P promotion. What nerve!

My slumber suffered a jolt at <41. Rg3+>. I will go on wondering why he took that little stroll into his backyard garden! Was it a ploy to collect his breath, gather his wits? Or a reassuring visit to tell his K he was still there?

May-02-12  gofer: Don't quite understand how black let this happen.

<47 ... Qxf2> clears white's defenses and opens a multitude of possibilities for black.

Shoving the black queen into a box like h1 makes no sense unless you are expecting white to protect Pg2, which white easily can. But after white gets greedy and plays <49 Rf7+> black surely should have played <49 ... Ke8> and not allowed white the tempo to get back to defend and instead forced <50 Nxd6+ Kd8> allowing the counter attack on g2!

May-02-12  TimothyLucasJaeger: gofer, after <49 ... Ke8 50 Nxd6+ Kd8 51 Be3> I don't see any satisfactory way for black to stop the threat of Bb6#. For example, after <51 Qxg2+ Kh4> black is out of checks (e4 is covered by the knight).
May-02-12  erniecohen: <<Timothy Glenn Forney>: Shedder 8-30.Qxf6 Rf7 31.Rxg7+ Rxg7 32.Rxg7 Qe6+ Rf7 33.Qg6+ Rg7 34.Qe6+ Rf7 draw=>

Much better for Black is 30... Qc7 31. Bxh6 Kh8 32. Bxg7+ Rxg7 .

May-02-12  gofer: <TimothyLucasJaeger> Thanks!

Even more reason to play <47 ... Qxf2> rather than <47 ... Qh1>.

  kevin86: White is threatened with matem,but cooly continues the attack. Later,all white has for the queen are knight and bishop,oh,any FIVE PASSED pawns.
May-02-12  ProLogik: The game from 39. Qxf7 onward was hilarious. How White runs circles around Black's king was sheer brilliance.
May-02-12  TimothyLucasJaeger: <gofer> Agreed. As <rilkefan> pointed out, black's defense in this game is quite inacurrate (in an admittedly difficult position). Entombing the queen on h1 was illogical with the threat on g2 so easily countered/ignored.

After your <47 ... Qxf2>, black's chances appear much better than in the game line. Instead of five connected passed pawns, white will be deprived of the f pawn and if able to win the d pawn, will only do so with difficulty.

After <48 Rf7+ Kc8>,

1. <49 Nxd6+ Kb8 50 Rb7+ Ka8> goes nowhere.

2. <49 Rxf6 Qg1+ 50 Kg3 Qe1+> looks bad for white. Black's queen will get a host of checks and will win the e4 or g2 pawn if white tries to avoid the perpetual check after <51 Kh2>.

3. <49 Be3 Qe1 50 Rxf6> looks like white's best try.

For example <50 ... Qh1+ 51 Kg3 Qe1+ Bf2> and the potential of Nxd6+ protects the e4 pawn from capture.

May-02-12  karnak64: Fascinating game. The name "Lembit Oll" sounds like it could belong to a dwarf-lord in the Mines of Moria. And if he could swing his ax as well as he played this game, there'd be nary an orc for leagues.
May-02-12  Jambow: <rilkefan: Not really impressed with black's defensive tactics here.>

Agreed blacks play was a bit weak but whites explotation of it was still very masterful. Another instructional game imho.

May-02-12  Riverbeast: A masterpiece...From (as the now-defunct magazine 'Chess Chow' once referred to him) the "Funky Estonian GM" Lembit Oll

Oll unfortunately took his own life...Another troubled talented chessplayer....RIP

  chuter09: This is an awesome game. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Very deep as well.
May-02-12  screwdriver: Sacking the queen and winning always gets the roar of the crowd.
May-03-12  ZeejDonnelly: My second accepted Gotd "pun"! woot
May-03-12  LoveThatJoker: <ZeejDonnelly> Congratulations!

May-03-12  karnak64: <Riverbeast>: didn't know that. Sad.
May-03-12  King Death: <karnak64> A few days ago on another page here I saw a link to an article by the GM Baburin where he named a couple of other players that were suicides and they (just like Oll) jumped out windows. That's eerie.
May-03-12  rilkefan: Stockfish thinks 47...Kc7 is best, at about +2. 47...Qxf2 is refuted by 48.Be3, with Bb6 a deadly threat. 47...Qh1+ was comparatively much better at half a pawn or so worse than ...Kc7. As noted above, stockfish doesn't hate black's defense after moves 34/35.
