|Feb-11-05|| ||BlazingArrow56: Another very recent game! A complex ending where White has more than enough compensation for the bishop. 59. ...Bxe6 looks like he knew he was done for. |
|Feb-11-05|| ||patzer2: White's 45. Qg8! prepares a decisive assault on Black's weak pawns (isolated pawn and weak links at the back of the pawn chain), while preparing to exchange a Bishop for three decisive pawns. |
|Feb-11-05|| ||schnarre: White's pawn majority after 52. Qxg5 was more than ample for dealing with Black's extra piece; after 60. Qxe5 Black just has no means of hanging on. |
|Feb-11-05|| ||cu8sfan: Lenier Dominguez-Perez is a very exciting player. I hope we'll se more games like this one of him. |
|Feb-11-05|| ||catfriend: Excellent attack from a closed position.
Sorry for being dense, but why triangulation?
|Feb-11-05|| ||notsodeepthought: <catfriend> There isn't any really, it's just a pun based on the fact that the game was played in Bermuda... |
|Feb-11-05|| ||fgh: <catfriend>: There are some chess compositions, in which to win, you must move your pieces or piece in a certain way. For example in this position, white must make his queen "walk" in the stairs:|
White: Qc2, Kd2, e2, f2, g2
Black: Ka1, a2, b2.
Solution: 1. Qc3 Kb1 2. Qd3+ Ka1 3. Qd4 Kb1 4. Qe4+ Ka1 5. Qe5 Kb1 6. Qf5+ Ka1 7. Qf6 Kb1 8. Qg6+ Ka1 9. Qg7 Kb1 10. Qh7+ Ka1 11. Qh8!!!! Kb1 12. Qh1#
However, I can't see how the white queen triangulated in this game.
|Feb-11-05|| ||kevin86: Triangulation has two meanings:In chess it is the squeezing out of an opponent from a certain square-based on the idea that you can approach it from two ways and your opponent only one.You are able to oscillate while your opponent is zugzwanged into retreating It is a big part of pawn endings and 2 knight vs pawn endings.|
In politics:The taking of a centrist position and using a moral argument to defend a position from the extremes on either side.The reverse is going on in politics today.
The pun is on BERMUDA TRIANGLE,since the game is in Bermuda.

|Feb-11-05|| ||aw1988: 12...Nc4!? |
|Feb-11-05|| ||schnarre: <aw1988> 12...Nc4!? looks worth a try. If White captures the Knight with 13. Nxc4 bxc4 then the open b file could give some counterplay after 14...Rb8. Anyone else looked at the 12...Nc4!? line? |
