|Jul-18-05|| ||TruthHurts: LOl yes it's true|
|Jul-18-05|| ||aw1988: Good lord. If that weren't enough, look at the rest of the game. Strangest I've seen in a long time...|
|Jul-18-05|| ||mymt: Wonder if this was a time scramble -with all those Qs & pawn promotions.
What an odd finish is Black "forced" to give perpetual check?|
|Jul-18-05|| ||farrooj: Can he really do anything else? this is like that Labourdonnais game where he has three pawns on the 7th rank.
by the way <aw>, loved your collection (einstein) but does this game fit into your collection?
this one might be better MacDonnell vs La Bourdonnais, 1834|
|Jul-18-05|| ||aw1988: I believe this one to be more complex.|
|Jul-18-05|| ||farrooj: you might be right...but the there are a lot more complex games, that's why I like your collection so much. I like complexity a lot...|
Can you check my collection please and see if it's any good?
|Jul-18-05|| ||aw1988: Yours is good.|
|Jul-19-05|| ||farrooj: thanks|
|Jul-19-05|| ||zsystriker: 39. e7 was a blunder. Simply RxQ wins easily. Obvious time scramble error...|

39.Rxb1 Qd4+ 40.Kh1 Qxd6
|Jul-20-05|| ||zsystriker: 39. Rxb1 Qd4+ 40. Kh1 Qxd6 41. Rfe1 followed by Rbd1. Black will have to give up a rook for a pawn. Last WP decides...|
|Jul-21-05|| ||aw1988: <farrooj> My collection isn't just on the most chaotic position, it's more about variations. Polugaevsky-Nezhmetdinov looks to be fairly straightforward but many analyses go past 50 pages... Lasker-Napier is still disagreed on today. Then of course you have that Belov game, which is instantly added, no hesitation at all...|
|Feb-24-07|| ||Illogic: Incredibly surreal game
|Aug-10-07|| ||MarkThornton: A remarkably similar game was played in 2005:
K Kokolias vs F Sigalas, 2005

|Feb-25-09|| ||arnoldc: Talking Esthetic, equally beautifull as "three connected Pawns on the 7th rank" would have result from: 41. e:R=Q+ Q:Q 42. d7 Qb-d8.
just a great view!
In this case the Black Queens are stuck in their places to block the White Pawns, and the White Rooks should remain on their files to protect the pawns. So White would just wait, while Black will move ..g6..K-g7..Qf-somewhere. White Queens on f8, later Black will sac his 2nd Queen for the Rook and d7 Pawn, and probably a draw.
|Feb-25-09|| ||swarmoflocusts: This is a beautiful example of a series of bad moves leading to an amazing game.|

Well, I am not sure. 39. Rxb1 Qd4+ 40. Kh1 Qxd6 41. Rfe1 Qe7 42. Rbd1 g5! 43. Rd7 (what else?) 43...Rxf7! 44.Rxe7 (of course, 44.exf7 is not possible for Qxe1#) 44...Rxe7 with next Kg7-f6-Rxe6 looks like dead draw to my eyes.
