  Ron: Thank you chessgames.com for bringing up this game. I had the privilege of meeting Marvin Dandridge. Around ten years I used to see him play in the coffehouses of Chicago. If I recall correctly he showed us this game. Marvin is also a funny guy too.
Jan-29-05  EXIDE: 23. Nxh7;Qd5
24. Pf3;Nxh7
25. Nxf7;Nf8
26. Qh8+:KxN what am I missing?

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: <EXIDE: 23. Nxh7;Qd5
24. Pf3;Nxh7
25. Nxf7;Nf8>

I think white should play 26 Bxg6 instead of Qh8+.

Jan-29-05  EXIDE: <Gregor Mendel> Thanks!Tried 26. Bxg6.However the win is not that obivious to me after 26...;NxN(f7)
Jan-29-05  MatrixManNe0: I think it would be rather easy to deduce that there must be a combination of some sort if any one of us had come across this position. The execution, however, would be more difficult.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: <EXIDE>--You're right. Maybe white should try 25 Bxg6, as previous posters suggested. Or in your line <23. Nxh7;Qd5 24.Pf3;Nxh7 25.Nxf7;Nf8> white should play 26 Nxd8 and then 27 Bxg6 with three pawns for the piece and a continuing attack. Black should definitely have played 23...Qd5.
Jan-30-05  patzer2: <offramp> I had initially looked at this game without any computer analysis. However, after a review with Fritz 8, I'll have to concede 23. Bxg6! is far better than 23. Nxh7!?, as played in the game.

After 23. Nxh7!?, Fritz found the interesting defense 23...Qd5!? (as opposed to 23...Nxh7?! played in the game) 24.Nxf6+ Bxf6 25.f3 Bg7 26.Qf4 Ba6 27.Ra2 Bb7 28.Ra1 Qd6 29.Bd2 Rc4 30.Nxc4 Bxd4+ 31.Kf1 Qxf4 32.Bxf4 Bxa1 33.Bxg6 fxg6 34.Rxa1 Ba6 35.Rc1 Nf7 36.a4 Rc8 37.b5 Bb7 38.Nb2 Rxc1+ 39.Bxc1▒, when, with opposite colored Bishops and a pawn advantage, White's advantage is clear but the win is far from certain.

However, the analysis after 23. Bxg6! is a clear win for White in every variation:

23.Bxg6 fxg6

[23...hxg6 24.Nexf7 Nxf7 25.Qxg6+ Kh8 (25...Kf8 26.Qxf7#) 26.Nxf7#]

23.Bxg6 fxg6 24.Nxh7 Nxh7

[24...Be4 25.Bd2 Rc2 (25...Bf5 26.Nxf6+ Bxf6 27.Bxc3 Bxe5 28.dxe5 Qd3 29.Qc1 Nf7 30.Rd2 Qb5 31.Bd4 a6 32.Qc3 a5 33.f3 g5 34.Rb2 a4 35.Rc1 Rd8 36.Rd2 Rd5 37.g4 Bg6 38.Qc8+ Kh7 39.Qxe6 ) 26.Rxe4 Rxd2 (26...Nxe4 27.Qxg6+ Kh8 28.Qxe8+ Bf8 29.Nxf8 ) 27.Qxg6+ Kh8 28.Ng5 ]

23.Bxg6 fxg6 24.Nxh7 Nxh725.Qxg6+ Kh8 26.Qxe8+ Bf8 27.Qxd8 Qxd8 28.Nf7+ Kg8 29.Nxd8

  Ron: <patzer2> Thanks for the analysis. If I run into Marvin Dandridge again (alas, I haven't seen him for some time) I will show him this and this chess website. I think he would be interested. One time at a coffeshop he showed us one of his victories, but he asked us to come up with better defenses for his opponent.
Jan-31-05  patzer2: <Ron> Thanks for the personal note. I see you are engaged in Chess computer research. Appreciate any tips you could offer us on the use of computers for Chess analysis.
Feb-08-05  Catfriend: <offramp: 23...Qd5 24.f3 Nxh7 25.Nxg6 f5 and now what?

It looks like 23.Bxg6 was better.>

25.N:f7 and the same way as the game continued!

  al wazir: I think 21...h5 would have solved black's defensive problems. For example, if 22. Nxg6 fxg6 23. Bxg6, then 23...Qxg2+. Moving the Q off the long diagonal deprived him of his only counter-threat.

  kevin86: White chops off both protecting pawns,then enters with queen at g6.
Nov-01-12  galdur: Among the very best puns, I think. LOL.
Nov-01-12  pablo333: I don't know if I'm missing something here: but haven't the publishers of this game made a mistake... 26 Bh6+ should actually read 26 Bh6#!?
Nov-01-12  pablo333: Of course - 26... Nxh6! Silly me!
Nov-01-12  JonathanJ: great pun, yes.

  Abdel Irada: Aha! So *you* are the punster, Rodion Romanovich Rhine, aka <FSR>.

I believe a certain explosive lieutenant will soon be paying you a call.
