|Dec-26-04|| ||Sneaky: 25.Nxh6+!! Classic Oll, I love it! |
|Dec-26-04|| ||Whitehat1963: Agree with <Sneaky>, 25. Nxh6+ is gutsy and apparently very well calculated. |
|Dec-26-04|| ||Whitehat1963: Check out Oll vs Azmaiparashvili, 1993 for another great game from the player of the day. |
|Jan-27-05|| ||OneArmedScissor: 25. Nxh6+!! Great move.
I think another great move is 27. Raxd3!!
If 33. ...Bxh6 34. Qg6+ Kh8 35. Qg8++
|May-25-05|| ||farrooj: notice how the player that sacrifices the most usually wins|
|Aug-05-05|| ||olav dalkeith: I like his 44 Ne7+ instead of the maybe more obvious Rc8+, allowing the knight to later cover g2 (50. Ne3). Excellent. Great fun to replay this game.|
|Dec-27-05|| ||Timothy Glenn Forney: What a great game!What a brilliant man and what a loss to the chess world.At move 30 my mind was saying take the pawn at f6. Does anyone see anything wrong with it?|
|Dec-27-05|| ||Timothy Glenn Forney: 30.Qxf6! any 31.Bxh6!|
|Jan-17-06|| ||jorgegatica: Tim, with all due respect, your suggestion sucks:
30. Qxf6? is answered with Rf7 and Black gets initiative...
|Jan-21-06|| ||Timothy Glenn Forney: <Jan-17-06
jorgegatica: Tim, with all due respect, your suggestion sucks:
30. Qxf6? is answered with Rf7 and Black gets initiative... >Well Shedder 8 thinks its ok-1. (-1.25)30.xh6 c7 31.d4 c8 32.xg7 xg7 33.xg7+ xg7 34.g3+ f7- 2. (-1.60)30.xf6 c7 31.xh6 h8 32.h4 xh6 33.xh6+ h7 34.e3 g7 Shedder thinks your comment sucks with all due respect.
|Jan-21-06|| ||Timothy Glenn Forney: Shedder 8 likes my move,but its still lost for white.My thought was that the R sac was dubious.I am not trying to tear this game apart,because it is very human and imaginative.Sometimes dubious sacs win games against humans,even though a program like Shedder 8 can make some classic games look bad.|
|Jan-21-06|| ||Timothy Glenn Forney: Shedder 8-30.xf6 f7 31.xg7+ xg7 32.xg7 e6+ f7 33.g6+ g7 34.e6+ f7 draw=|
|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!|
|May-02-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Great game by Oll, as I said about a week ago!
|May-02-12|| ||Oceanlake: Note Bb7 and denuded kingside.|
|May-02-12|| ||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|
|May-02-12|| ||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.xf6 f7 31.xg7+ xg7 32.xg7 e6+ f7 33.g6+ g7 34.e6+ f7 draw=>|
Much better for Black is 30... c7 31. xh6 h8 32. xg7+ xg7 .
|May-02-12|| ||gofer: <TimothyLucasJaeger> Thanks! |
Even more reason to play <47 ... Qxf2> rather than <47 ... Qh1>.
|May-02-12|| ||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.|
