|Sep-22-11|| ||Shams: The pun is a bit saccharine but I'd almost forgotten about this game. I wish this line were just a little more playable for Black.|
|Sep-22-11|| ||erniecohen: Personally, I would downgrade the sacrifice to !?, since 22. ♕g2 douses the fire.|
|Sep-22-11|| ||Shams: <ernie> Indeed it does, with White slightly better whether Black swaps queens or retreats [Shredder]. Killjoy.|
|Sep-22-11|| ||smirnoff: Why would anybody castle kingside when black already launched an attack there, by advancing his g- and h- pawns and with bishop on d7. I think in this case castling kingside doesn´t mean getting king into safety.|
|Sep-22-11|| ||Richard Taylor: I knew the song but I didn't know that Tate was of the other persuasion...|
|Sep-22-11|| ||laskerian: The song which was the subject of the pun is EBONY AND IVORY, by Paul Mc Cartney (former member of the Beatles and a superb songwriter-artist in his own right). During the days of the Fab Four, he would inject arrangements into the Beatles songs - even in the instruments he did not usually play for the band (he played bass)- that spoke volumes about his genius. Emory Tate's play in this game was very much like Paul Mc Cartney: brilliant when the occasion so required.|
|Sep-22-11|| ||laskerian: I am sorry <rilkefan>, I did not see in time that you already identified the title of the song in question. Anyway, we have different interpretations of the pun and I appreciate yours.|
|Sep-22-11|| ||hedgeh0g: An incredible game; Tate made it look so easy.|
|Sep-22-11|| ||Garech: Great game!
|Sep-22-11|| ||twin phoenix: A great game by a friend, Master Tate. Have had the pleasure of being squashed like a bug by him at speed chess several times... in fact Emory is the greatest speed chess player i've ever seen! in a room with inveterate speed players with master playing strengths, he still never lost a game... a priviledge to call him a friend of mine!|
|Sep-22-11|| ||hellopolgar: <rilkefan> Thanks for explaining the pun!|
|Sep-22-11|| ||scormus: Yes, masterclass by B. It is interesting to look at the CG base and see how many 5 ... Bd7 lines have > 50% win for B. I didn't enjoy things at all if I stumbled into a line with my B on e3 and out popped ... Ng4. Certainly not something I want to repeat. My sympathies with W in this game.|
|Sep-22-11|| ||kevin86: After the rook dominate the back row,the knights deliver the finale.|
|Sep-22-11|| ||scormus: <rilkefan ... pun> I didnt know Emory Tate was Afro-American, even better!|
|Sep-22-11|| ||SirChrislov: ...living in perfect harmony. GM Nick DeFirmian was a +2500 at the time. black was a 2377.|
|Sep-15-12|| ||Peligroso Patzer: <rilkefan: <<hellopolgar>: nice game. i don't quite get the pun though...>
Quite a complex and almost poetic one. It presumably refers to the McCartney/<Jackson> song "Ebony and Ivory" ***>|
For the record, McCartney's collaborator on that song was Stevie Wonder.
|Sep-15-12|| ||rilkefan: Good point, I must have been a bit confused by "Say Say Say".|
|Sep-15-12|| ||perfidious: <rilkefan> Indeed, the other big hit of McCartney at the time, though much different in tempo.|
|Apr-28-13|| ||Conrad93: It's amazing that such a material advantage is of no benefit...|
|Jun-13-15|| ||sycophante: About the purpose of 31...Rc8:
I see 32...Nxd3 cxd3 33.Nxe2 Qxe2 34.Rcc1
Is there more to that move?
|Oct-19-15|| ||The Kings Domain: Good kingside attack by black. White shouldn't have castled on the kingside.|
|Nov-03-15|| ||Brian.elkhoury: Can anyone explain what's wrong with 32.Nxf4 exf4 ..|
|Nov-03-15|| ||tamar: 32...g1Q+ 33 Kxg1 Nxf3+ would be played instead|
|Nov-03-15|| ||andrewjsacks: Typical Tate ingenuity and tactical skills.|
|Nov-04-15|| ||TheFocus: Really nice game!
Thanks for the games Emory Tate!
