Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-20-05  aw1988: Good lord. The lack of proper words! For shame.
Mar-20-05  Milo: What happens after 12.d4 ?
Mar-20-05  TheParadigm: 12.d4 Nd3 is pretty awful for White. Not only does he have very weak dark squares after Nxb2, but dxc4 is debilitating to the queenside pawn structure, and White would have trouble finding compensation.
Mar-20-05  Seraphina: Udare did not really handle the opening well at all, I think, a little too hypermodern... but 11. e4 contradicts that. Wouldn't e3 or even a3 be better (to get some activitiy on the Qside and maybe free that Bishop? As for Schiller, I believe he missed winning a piece on 20..... f5 (instead of f6), the N can only retreat to d2 blocking the bishop's retreat. I would assume that he decided against it because it would open up his Kside (after ...h6, Bxh6), but White is in no position to get a head of steam up to attack.... Any ideas?
Mar-20-05  mahmoudkubba: after move 44...b5 white should 've be more careful not to loss his powerful elephant (bishop) otherwise, he was a little stronger and could've won the game all of it..
Mar-20-05  mahmoudkubba: <Milo>:after 13...d4 white could've played 14-a3 instead of his move 14-Ne4.. I find it a beter move.. opr any thing else .. also the moving of the horse (night) to d6 was a mistake as far as I thing!!

  patzer2: Not much of a pun or game for today's "game of the day." White all but concedes the game with 15. Nd6?, losing a pawn with no real compensation. Oh well, at least the GM blindfold and rapid games being played in Monaco today are a lot more competitive, interesting and instructive.

  patzer2: Schiller's 47...d2!, though rather obvious to experienced players, is a good example for teaching novices how to combine the Knight Fork and the passed pawn tactics for decisive advantage in the endgame.
Mar-20-05  Catfriend: <pazter2> I liked the pun:) And I think it's a useful example of winning a won game.
Mar-20-05  DP12: This does not really deserve the game of the day, there are so many nice games of chess played all over the world and this one is a slightly miserable excuse for a fight. The pun was the only really good thing about it.
Mar-20-05  Drifter: surely 12.Qb2 is far weaker then Qe2 ? Qb2 seems so ugly that i must be missing something...
Mar-20-05  midknightblue: I enjoyed watching the strong finish. Good game FM Schiller.

  patzer2: <Catfriend> After looking at Shirov and Topalov's lose on one-move blunders to Anand in the ongoing 14th Amber Rapid tournament, I take back what I said about this game. By comparison, this is a useful example of "winning a won game."

  kevin86: Looking for sequel game:don't u double dare---followed by don't u double-dog dare,etc.

A strange ending:white's bishop is nailed to the first rank by black's wide spread pawns. Even in the open position,the knight is stronger

Sep-08-05  Averageguy: Well played ending.
