|Nov-03-05|| ||suenteus po 147: <notyetagm> I will say 29.Rxe5 is incredibly impressive as I would never consider it, and thought for sure black could take, but alas it is not the case. Black's doom is as follows: 29...Bxe5 30.Rh4+! Kg8 31.Bb3+ Kf8 32.Rh8+ Ke7 33.Kxa8 with the immediate threat of a rook check to queen the pawn with a bishop and pawn up.|
|Nov-03-05|| ||euripides: <suenteus I will say 29.Rxe5 is incredibly impressive as I would never consider it> Neither would I. But Eric Schiller somewhere passed on a tip that I think he got from Shamkovich or someone: consider all captures, even if they don't immediately appear to make sense. I've never applied this systematically but it may be worth considering. |
In your line 31 ...Qf7 staggers on into an ending two pawns down but will also lose.
|Jun-23-06|| ||Topzilla: The game is very good, and it should be added to that collection "games featuring queen sacrifices".|
|Jun-24-06|| ||Grega: Grega: Nice to see that you enjoy complicated games Topzilla, have you seen this ->|
R Bogdanovic vs A Planinc, 1965
Minic vs A Planinc, 1975
|Jun-24-06|| ||Topzilla: Nice ones too, thanks for posting them <Grega>|
|Sep-29-06|| ||Bufon: This is an impressive game by Svidler!|
|Nov-08-07|| ||computer chess guy: White could have played the less flashy 25. xd4 xd4 26. xc7 be8 27. e3 with advantage. After the Queen sac, my engine prefers 26. .. d5 instead of 26. ..e5, which may enable Black to hold on longer, although he is still in danger, especially from the passed a pawn.|
|Feb-07-09|| ||outplayer: Svidler played magnificently. Another demonstration of his great strength is his victory over Pentala Harikrishna Svidler vs Harikrishna, 2009|
|Feb-07-09|| ||JointheArmy: 19. Ra4 doesn't look right.|
|Feb-07-09|| ||Alphastar: <JointheArmy> Why not?|

Toga II 1.3.1 evaluates it as the best move. My chessforum has detailed instructions for downloading Toga, which is freeware.
|Feb-07-09|| ||WhiteRook48: nice attack|
|Feb-07-09|| ||kevin86: Very imaginative play by the winner-some oddities also...|
|Feb-07-09|| ||anand: Hello! I am a beginner. Wondering about the 29. Rxe5 sacrifice from white, I got stuck at this line 29.Rxe5Bxe5 30.Rh4+Kg8 31. Bb3+Kf8 32. Rh8+Ke7 33. Rxa8Qc3.|
Could anybody please explain how white makes it work from here?
Or why the rook sacrifice works for white and if it goes through another better line?
|Feb-07-09|| ||HAPERSAUD: y doesnt adams quit using the ruy lopez, he loses to much ,seems like a siclian player to me|
|Feb-07-09|| ||Salaskan: Anand, I presumed you meant 33...Qc6 (Qc3 is impossible, Qd3 is met by Re8+ Kxe8 a8=Q)? Then 34.Ba3+ Bd6 35.Bd5! (decoying the queen; the immediate 35.Bxd7+? is met by Qc1+ Kh2 Qf4+ with a perpetual check, unless white plays Bd1, losing the bishop anyway anyway) 35...Qxd5 36.Bxd6 cxd6 37.Rc8 and White will be a rook up.|
|Feb-07-09|| ||YetAnotherAmateur: Another interesting line from move 29:
29.Rxe5 Bxe5 30.Rh4+ Kg8 31. Bb3+ Kf8 32. Rh8+ Ke7 33. Rxa8 Kd6 34. Ba3+ Kc6 35. Ba4+ Kb7 36. Bxd7 Kxa8 37. Bc5 Kb7 38. Bc6+ Kxc6 39. a8=Q Kxc5
Obviously still a win for white.
|Feb-08-09|| ||tivrfoa: amazing!|
|Jun-02-11|| ||IRONCASTLEVINAY: So many puzzles in this single game, may be for entire weak.|
|Aug-15-11|| ||sevenseaman: I have rarely seen a game played with such sharp chess acumen and gusto that it even looks like a great display of flamboyance from Svidler.|
Puzzles galore, many places his chosen move is not easy to understand. An outstanding entertainer, it may be his best game.
|Jun-07-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Guess-the-Move Final Score:
Svidler vs Adams, 2000.
YOU ARE PLAYING THE ROLE OF SVIDLER.
Your score: 46 (par = 42)
|Apr-23-13|| ||Everett: Once you see that the K is almost mated, with a rook and two bishops plus a pawn on the 7th... 29.Rxe5 is not so hard to spot.|
