|Aug-26-06|| ||MyriadChoices: Wow, wonderful game Mr. Keene. It's so romantic.|
|Feb-04-08|| ||FSR: I'm not quite sure who's trapping whom. Black eventually won with 8...a6 in M Duppel vs R Schlindwein, 1999 Black lost with 8...0-0-0 in K Spraggett vs F South, 1976|
|Feb-04-08|| ||FSR: I love the position after 12.Nxh8, where White's rooks sit on their original squares, but his minor pieces have eaten Black's rooks on their initial squares.|
|Sep-08-08|| ||newzild: I'm not sure how worthy this is of GOTD status.
The queen sac is cool, but after that the tactics are kind of simple - and Fielder makes a lot of blunders.
|Sep-08-08|| ||Woody Wood Pusher: Why is this blunder-ridden patzer fest the GOTD?|
|Sep-08-08|| ||Alphastar: <Woody Wood Pusher> I'm sorry mr Kasparov, but not every game of the day can be up to your standard.|
|Sep-08-08|| ||Woody Wood Pusher: Within 18 moves black loses 5 pawns, his knight, both rooks and hangs his queen......Now I'm not claiming to be Kasparov, but that's pretty poor play for a GOTD IMO.|
In fact I have lightning games with less mistakes in, shall I submit those for GOTD?
|Sep-08-08|| ||soberknight: Hey, lay off Fielder. At least he wasn't dumb enough to take the bishop on d5. I'm sure he was eager to hang his queen for a knight fork, but it just wasn't time yet... :)|
|Sep-08-08|| ||Woody Wood Pusher: <sober> <I'm sure he was eager to hang his queen for a knight fork, but it just wasn't time yet... :)>|
If I beat this guy after offering him double rook odds will it be GOTD?
|Sep-08-08|| ||Samagonka: This is chess the way I love it: fast and furious.|
|Sep-08-08|| ||JG Burgess: After 8...a6, white simply mops up with 9.b4 whereby black is forced to give back the queen.|
Woody, try to keep comments complimentary - Keene played admirably even if his opponent did not(I would be visibly shaken if my opponent sacrificed his queen, as he would obviously have seen some sort of way to receive compensation).
It is not riddled with blunders, as after move 5 the game is pretty much decided anyway.
|Sep-08-08|| ||xenophon: <Woody Wood Pusher> sorry to be a pedant but i think you mean fewer|
|Sep-08-08|| ||ray keene: as i pointed out in the very first post on this game-E.Fielder was not noted so much as an over the board player, he was better known as a composer of strange problems-- see for example the Fairy Chess Review of February 1954.|
|Sep-08-08|| ||kevin86: This is about a picturesque game as I've ever seen. In less than 20 moves we have:|
a queen sacrifice
two rooks captured by minor pieces in the corner
a pin on the queen.
a fork of queen,king,and bishop. In fact in the final position,only the sole bishop on h5 is NOT under attack.
|Sep-08-08|| ||Katu: <Woody Wood Pusher: Within 18 moves black loses 5 pawns, his knight, both rooks and hangs his queen>|
In exchange White sacrificed the QUEEN.
I really think that this game well deserves the GOTD title. More than this and the last week's games.
|Sep-08-08|| ||playground player: I've never seen this opening before--it's downright cruel!|
|Sep-08-08|| ||Once: A fun game, although a shame that black did not play as well as he could.|
There are five games on CG.com and 17 on the chessbase.com 3.5 million game database with this opening up to the queen sacrifice - including a previous GOTD. Not all end in white wins, but it seems that white has all the fun.
One to remember the next time someone wheels out 1. ... Nc6 to my 1. e4, although it might take a lifetime to get a chance to play this line!
|Sep-08-08|| ||JG27Pyth: A question for Mr. Keene...
It seems to me that if your light square Bishop didn't have the d5 retreat square you'd have a very difficult game -- but of course, it does. You couldn't have seen that resource when you calculated the Queen sac, could you?
to Woody Wood Pusher...
Here's a quote I came across today on another chess forum from Emmanuel Lasker (with emphasis added by me)... somehow I feel it applies:
Lasker - "He who imagines himself capable should attempt to perform. Neither originality counts, <nor criticism of another's work>. It is not courage, nor self-confidence, <nor a sense of superiority> that tells. Performance alone is the test."
|Sep-08-08|| ||Chessmensch: I especially like Keene's comments. Very profound and insightful.|
|Sep-08-08|| ||ray keene: actually i didnt see up to blacks --d5 when i sacked the queen-as for the comments-dr schiller input this game from my original scoresheet where i happen to have distributed a few exclams and queries-i certainly do not claim to have commented in full on this game-however the presence of even a brief annotation qualifies it for the annotated pen symbol! i have of course annotated many more games on this site in vastly greater detail.|
|Sep-08-08|| ||mrbasso: <ray keene: try looking at 9cxb7+ followd by nc6 for starters> |
actually 10...Qc7 looks very unclear to me.
Why not 9. Nc4 Qc7 10. Nd5 Bxc2
11. Nxc7 Kxc7 12. cxb7 Bxe4 13. O-O ?
|Jan-02-09|| ||WhiteRook48: this deflection seems so easy to get, but it never happens to me in practical play. :(|
|Oct-11-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Guess-the-Move Final Score:
Keene vs E Fielder, 1964.
YOU ARE PLAYING THE ROLE OF KEENE.
Your score: 49 (par = 36)
|Feb-24-14|| ||yureesystem: What an incredible game!!|
|Oct-12-17|| ||Moszkowski012273: 8...0-0-0 9.cxb7+... is quite equal.
8...0-0-0 9.Nc4... is a bit stronger.
