|Feb-14-05|| ||patzer2: <uqhaibu> I'll work with Fritz 8 to expand the analysis and include your 36...Nf4 (instead of 36...Qxb3) option (hope it helps, with apologies for the overkill): |

|Feb-14-05|| ||RisingChamp: ?? means very bad move according to all major analyzing systems and all acllaimed analyzers.In fact in many great games very good annotators like Kasparov give the losing move as ?!(dubious) or at the most ? unless it is really bad.(??)is reserved for moves which are really very poor-mistakes a patzer could make. (?) is a poor move which a grandmaster should not be making.I think you are missing the concept of "blunder"- "blunder" means a very poor move,a move which a good player would make very very rarely-not more than one blunder in 5 games for a GM IMO. More specifically blunders are used in reference to obvious tactical oversights,this doesnt come remotely close to being obvious.Maybe Bxf8 and dxe4 were deserving of question marks though I doubt it,but certainly not double question marks.Perhaps we differ in our opinions,but you should be aware that most annotators take the subjective elements into consideration,rather than purely objective calculations like yours. |
|Feb-14-05|| ||patzer2: <RiskingChamp> Appreciate your comment.
I'll think about using ?! or ? on losing moves that are not so obvious. In any event, thanks for pointing out that the refutation to 30...dxe4?! is very subtle, and that White must play very carefully and accurately to preserve winning chances. I found the variations fascinating. |
|Feb-15-05|| ||Cyphelium: <ughaibu> Although patzer2's computer doesn't say why, the reason why my suggestion below doesn't work seems to be (31. -h5 32.d6 exf3 33. e7 fxg2+ 34. g1 g5 35. d8+ g7 36.c3 f4 37. f8+ g6 38. g8+) 38.- h6!, when 39. f8+ h5 40. d1+ doesn't win, since there's no mate on g5 anymore. |
|Feb-15-05|| ||ughaibu: Cyphelium: 40.Qh7? |
|Feb-15-05|| ||Cyphelium: <ughaibu> I don't see any follow-up after 40.- g4, do you? |
|Feb-15-05|| ||ughaibu: I see, yes, after Bd1 black has Bf3. Well, well, well. How about 40.h4? |
|Feb-15-05|| ||Cyphelium: <ughaibu> Well, then it's actually mate in six: 40.- h3+ 41. h2 e5+ 42. xh3 e3+ 43. h2 g1+ 44. xg1 f2+ 45. h3 xh4 mate. |
|Feb-15-05|| ||ughaibu: That looks okay, brings me back to wondering why Nf4 wasn't mentioned on the video. |
|Feb-15-05|| ||ughaibu: What about Bc2 instead of Qg8? |
|Feb-15-05|| ||ughaibu: I see, that's the computer's suggestion. |
|May-27-05|| ||SDSUPinoy: Whats wrong with 12. ... Qxg7. I haven't seen anygames take that route?|
|May-27-05|| ||Shokwave: 12.Qxg7 walks into Rg8, and I dunno about that.
and white can't try Qxh7 because of Nf6,and when he covers g2 with Qh3, e5!
14. NxN QXN 15.f3 and then the comp suggests Qe5 or Qf5, but I'd play Qg6!
and force the QxQ trade, then be tempted to recapture with the h pawn and have a nice looking structure. Crafty wants to recapture with the rook. Anyway, 12.Qxg7 does look interesting, but somewhat awkward for white.
|Jun-19-05|| ||crumpy: He sacrificed both his queen and rook. What Brilliant play.|
|Nov-08-05|| ||aw1988: Is wasting a tempo with a3 and a4 necessarily a good idea?|
|Jun-19-07|| ||Richard Taylor: Great game!!|
|Sep-15-07|| ||notyetagm: <Richard Taylor: Great game!!>|
|May-01-08|| ||Ulhumbrus: According to Fischer, White stands better after 6 Bc4. White has some advantage in space, and White's minor pieces are three moves ahead in development of Black's minor pieces, but can White make these assets count?|
|Sep-19-08|| ||whiteshark: Position after <33.Qg4> is a good Sunday puzzle: |

It is said that Anand called it the best game he'd ever seen (New In Chess Magazine Nr. 3/2005, p.106)
|Sep-19-11|| ||theodor: <<patzer2>...In the final position, play could have continued 37.h4...(or h3)> dear patzer2, you make 18 forced! moves to prove black's win! are you inkling white have resigned after figuring out this line!|
|Jun-20-12|| ||Cemoblanca: 1 of the best games I've ever seen! Emil is a very creative & intelligent player! Bravo! :0)|
|Sep-19-12|| ||perfidious: Gormally must have been in shock after his opponent's response to the seemingly powerful 33.Qg4.|
Definite POTD material.
|Feb-13-13|| ||Shams: New In Chess 3/2005 asked top GMs to pick the best chess game they had ever seen. This was Anand's choice.|
|Jul-19-13|| ||FSR: Amazing game. Definitely should be GOTD.|
|Jul-19-13|| ||FSR: Sutovsky's Immortal.|
