I actually calculated a few lines from 31...Bf6. Toga declared it to give White some pull, although not a winnning game (see my two posts).
|Mar-03-08|| ||SuperPatzer77: Why White resigns after 38...Ne3! is because White is falling apart -- 39. Qxe3 (only move) Qxe3, 40. Ne4 (prevents Qg5#) Qxe4, 41. Rf4 (only move) Qe2+, 42. Kg6 (if 42. Kh4 Qh2#) Qxd3+, 43. Kh5 Qh3+, 44. Kg6 Qe6+, 45. Kh5 Qe5+, 46. Kg6 Qg5+, 47. Kf7 Qxf4+, 48. Ke7 Qf8#. So, White tries his desperadoes against Black's mating threats but they don't work at all. 0-1|
After 38...Ne3! 39. Kg6 Qe6+, 40. Kh5 Qg4# (or 40. Rf6 Qxf6+, 41. Kh5 Qg5#). 0-1 Too many mating threats are actually inevitable so, that's why White is falling apart.
|Mar-05-08|| ||Richard Taylor: <johnlsponge> I found 13 ... Nd6 and also thought of Nf6 or h6... I couldn't calculate all of them of course but I felt Black was winning...trouble was I spent a lot of time on 28 ... Nd3 and 28 .... Nf3+ and while doing so I had set my small portable board up with the W Queen on b8! So I was looking at 28 ..Nf3+ 29 gxf3 Rxf2 30 Rxe1+ Bf1 31 Rxf1+ and so on (when after 28 ..Ne3 29 Rxd8+ Kh7 the N was pinned (which it actually isn't in reality!)and I was obsessed with that line for some reason) ... but I also thought of 28 ..Qxg2+ but no dice...so all these lines and ideas distracted from the main idea of 28 Rxf2 then I saw Nd6 as essential to the attack..and possibly Bf6. |
Some interesting analysis you gave.
I usually avoid the "insane" problems - when I came on here a few years ago I did solve some of them - one by Keres and one by Tal etc but I used to spend too much time on them - I would analyse completely in my "head"! I don't have a computer - I do have Chessmaster but I have never set it up to solve much - occasionally I use it (use it more lately) ... For that (chess practice) the "easier" problems" are probably of more practical use but these are good from time to time - certainly a great combo by Beliavsky - a great game by both!
Useful to see the themes as much as analysing specific variations...

|Dec-25-10|| ||Llawdogg: Wow! Fantastic rook sacrifice. This is what chess is all about. Beliavsky gets it!|
|Dec-30-10|| ||falso contacto: good bye blue sky.|
|Jan-31-11|| ||belgradegambit: Possible GOTD title: Knights in White Smirin|
|Jul-11-12|| ||Moszkowski012273: 28. Rxe5 wins this game for white. Why has nobody mentioned this?????|
|Jul-11-12|| ||Shams: <Moszkowski012273> Are you sure your move wins?|
|Jul-11-12|| ||shivasuri4: <Moskowski012273>, I don't think it does. Note that 28. Rxe5 loses to 28... Bxe5. The fork 29.Ng6+ is pointless as mate is threatened on g2 and the f4 (now g6) knight is the sole defender.|
|Jul-11-12|| ||Moszkowski012273: No, there are TWO checks coming with the knights, the second one being a DISCOVERED..(or else the queen falls)|
|Jul-11-12|| ||shivasuri4: <Moskowski012273>, you are right. However, the position appears roughly dynamically equal after 28. Rxe5 Bxe5 29. Ng6+ Kg7 30. Nh5+ Kh7 31. Nxe5+ Qe4. The black rook on the second rank compensates for black being a pawn down.|
|Jul-11-12|| ||Chessdreamer: Black's 26th move seems to be Kg8, not Kh8 as given here. [Beliavsky, Chess Informant 48/484]|
|Jul-11-12|| ||shivasuri4: <Chessdreamer>, I suspect Chess Informant is correct. That solves the riddle, doesn't it, <Moszkowski012273>? 28. Rxe5 would not be a good move if 26... Kg8 was played.|
|Jul-11-12|| ||Moszkowski012273: Yes, 26...Kg8 makes all the difference in the world.|
|Nov-24-12|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: Harmony in the movements of the black pieces !|
|Apr-26-16|| ||ToTheDeath: Fantastic attack.|
|Sep-08-17|| ||malt: 28.Qf5 looks a better try for White
|Nov-20-17|| ||andrewjsacks: Thank you, CG.|
|Nov-20-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: Today at cg.com it is "Players whose names start with 'Sm' Day"|
So Ilya Smirin gets GOTD, and Sergey Smagin got puzzle of the day here, move 31.? (White to play and win)
S Smagin vs J Banas, 1987
Of course, Snack o' the Day today is S'mores
|Nov-20-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: Now I see that Smirin lost! So my hypothesis goes out the window.|
|Nov-20-17|| ||kevin86: "We don't meed no stinking rooks!"|
|Nov-20-17|| ||cunctatorg: You can understand how great the game of chess is if you reflect on the fact that such a strongest, shining and terrible Grand Master as Alexander Beliavsky isn't among the greatest chessplayers of his era, namely Karpov, Korchnoi, Kasparov, Anand, Kramnik and Ivanchuk!!... |
But Alexander Beliavsky was a chess dreadnought, even a chess Leviathan!!...
|Nov-20-17|| ||Breunor: More Beliavsky please!! He is great and he is such a fighter!|
