|Dec-26-04|| ||alphee: 41 xe5 was easy to spot but I could not see a positive outcome for Black after the Queens exchange. The Black pawn on second row looked valuable and came up with something like 41... xe5 42. d2 xe1+ 43. xe1 xd4+
44. h1 d1 45. xd1 xd1+ 46. h2 b1= 47. g3 e5+ 48. g4 f5# |
|Dec-26-04|| ||kevin86: Even two rooks are no match for the two semi-trucks passing as lowly pawns. The third pawn is just a diversion-to keep the rook away rom the c file. |
|Dec-26-04|| ||kevin86: Nice Boxing Day puzzle-watch as the pawns exchange their jobs for the job of being a queen. |
|Dec-26-04|| ||Rama: This was a great puzzle.
Note that 44 Rxb2 Bxc3, is a double attack that wins back the exchange and leaves black with R against R plus 5 (!) passed pawns.
I was looking at 42 ... Rd3 (instead of Q-takes) for a while but that doesn't work. After 43 Qxd3 cxd3, 44 exf6 bxc3, 45 fxg7 ... white has h6 for a protected passer of his own on the 7th, plus the extra rook.
|Dec-26-04|| ||Dick Brain: So close. I got all the way to 46. Rb5 as one of my variations, but then instead of the elegant shot ...Rd1! I thought of the plan for Black to play 46...Ra8 followed by a later ...Ra1 (or ...Ra2). |
|Dec-26-04|| ||Slayer772002: 27. Be3 !! ... after 27 moves, the bishop finally leaves his home 4 a walk, was the wheater that bad, Geller ? |
|Dec-26-04|| ||Lord Nikon: ok... I am a super-newbie student of the game. Can someone please finish the line of attack for me cuz I don't see it. |
|Dec-26-04|| ||iron maiden: <Lord Nikon> Hello, welcome to chessgames.com. 47. Rxd1 c2 and Black will queen a pawn however White plays. |
|Dec-26-04|| ||Lord Nikon: thanks iron maiden... I love this site. It rocks |
|Dec-26-04|| ||JohnBoy: <Lord Nikon> Not only does a pawn queen, but white must give up a rook to keep both pawns from queening. |
|Dec-26-04|| ||weev: the power of a posse of pawns near the finish line! great play!! |
|Dec-26-04|| ||KKW: Brilliant finish! I wasn't even close to solving today's puzzle |
|Nov-01-06|| ||Timothy Glenn Forney: One of the deepest combinations I've seen yet,I can't believe this endgame,it is just amazing.|
|Dec-01-06|| ||Microbe: ......Wow. Absolutely stunning. Not much more I can say than that. Superb play from Averbakh.|
|Apr-25-07|| ||Plato: Given the tournament title and venue, this can be GOTD: "Averbakh in the USSR."|
|Sep-26-10|| ||kellmano: I think Plato's pun is marginally better than the one used. This game really is something else. Should be more well known for sure.|
|Sep-26-10|| ||onur87: Perfect finish!Like a Mimar Sinan Mosque!|
|Sep-26-10|| ||rapidcitychess: <kellmano> I used that pun, BUT! The pun "Back in the USSR" has already been used.|
Doesn't this violate the GOTD rules?
|Sep-26-10|| ||Jack Kerouac: What jumps out at me, is this game seems like a modern computer game. From 1954?
Probably just good Grandmaster Chess Praxis....|
|Sep-26-10|| ||Sem: Silly pun.|
|Sep-26-10|| ||OneArmedScissor: bad pun|
|Sep-27-10|| ||kevin86: Here come the pawns...|
|Feb-08-11|| ||NARC: I like 26. ... Rfd8. On 27. Qxc6 bxc6 28. Re3 Rd7 I saw some weird way for white to try protecting the d3 pawn with the king, which gets in hazard chased by pawns. I was looking for a game with Rubinstein as black where there also is an exchange on c6 opening the b-file, but I did not find it.|
|Oct-19-11|| ||CustardTart: Black appears to me to have missed 27 ...R*d3|
|May-11-13|| ||Poisonpawns: I just threw coins on the chess board|
