  kevin86: White so tightly weaves the spider web around black's king that he can afford to ignore the capture of his queen to issue a checkmate with a lowly pawn.

I remember Mr. Schmid as the referee for the Fischer-Spassky title match of 1972.

  Chessmensch: This is about the least kibitzing I've seen by 12:30pm Eastern time. The game must not be turning folks on.

Black seemed to just move pieces around with no plan in the first half of the game and then moved them around in retreat for the rest. For a time his position looked like it would benefit from Ex-Lax. Good play by white against a poor opponent.

Apr-23-08  waustad: Most kibitzers were following Baku, I'd suspect.
Apr-23-08  Samagonka: I like the bishop sac and the way black's King gets drawn onto the battle ground. Crime rated.
Apr-23-08  porgue: wow.... very little kibitzing at already 4:06 eastern time
Apr-23-08  Knight to f6: I'm not sure about Schmid being referee for the Fischer-Spassky match, but he was the referee for the Korchnoi-Karpov match (Baguio, 1978).

A good game by White although Black really played without a plan. Then again, if you don't play well you can't exploit these weaknesses.

Apr-23-08  Knight to f6: The theme for this week seems to be checkmate, I think the losers of all of these games got mated rather than resigned.
