|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.|
|Oct-08-13|| ||kingscrusher: What a fascinating game|
|Oct-08-13|| ||Everyone: agrees.|
|Mar-29-14|| ||autom: Isn't 34.Rb6 stronger, winning the Q for the B? Or, what am I missing?|
|Jun-12-16|| ||plang: In Adams-Benjamin at the 1997 World Team Championship at Lucerne White had played 13 Re1 and had gone on to win; 13 Qe2 was new with the idea of hitting the a-pawn after 15 d4. Svidler was critical of 23..Re8? recommending instead 23..Bxf1 24 Kxf1..g6 25 a6 with compensation for the exchange. |
Crouch after 24 Re1:
"White needs to keep his tactical cool here. Black has forgone the capture of the exchange, in return for setting up quite a formidable counter-attack, with all his pieces firing at White. The one thing that White has running in his favor is that if he can manage a safe check on the h-file, it will robably be decisive."
Svidler had more than enough compensation for the queen after 24..Re6 25 Qxe6 but the alternative 24..Qh4 25 Be3..Rxe3 26 Qxc7..Rd8 27 Rxd4..Rxd4 28 fxe..Qxe1+ 29 Kh2..Rd3 30 Bxd3..Bxd3 31 Qd8+ would have been winning for White.
Adams resigned after 34 Bc3 as the threat of Rxg7 followed by Rg4 could not be met.
<autom: Isn't 34.Rb6 stronger, winning the Q for the B? Or, what am I missing?>
This also wins though since Adams resigned Svidler's continuation was plenty strong.
|Feb-26-17|| ||Saniyat24: Never came across this variation before...Svidler took control of the game and did not let go....!|
