|Aug-12-05|| ||martinshortsays: Does HE come with the set?|
|Aug-12-05|| ||checkpat: Bareev should have stayed with the Caro!|
|Aug-12-05|| ||markanton: 16. ... Bxc5 may prevent the trouble ?|
|Aug-12-05|| ||TheAlchemist: "This is a stickup!"
<Round 9.8>? Anyway, maybe this was another decisive round, like Topalov vs Bareev, 2002, where Bareev also used the French. Amazing game by White, even if it's all really home-prep.
|Aug-12-05|| ||psmith: <al wazir> Your line certainly looks like a better defense. This suggests that the whole line was not home preparation, at least of the computer assisted sort.|
|Aug-12-05|| ||ReikiMaster: 27. c6 is one of the key moves for me. Of course the sac 16. Bg6 is amazing - 16 moves later black has 4 pieces for the queen but has no useful moves!|
|Aug-12-05|| ||kevin86: It's good to see a brilliant,spanking new game-it was played last Sunday.|
Berg looks really good in this one-I almost thought it was Tal again. White sacs minor pieces like they were out of style.
|Aug-12-05|| ||rexeterna: <kevin86: I almost thought it was Tal again.> Same here. Obviously it's a bit early to make huge comparisons, but it's true that when you see the kind of play this kid is doing, Tal comes to mind immediately.|
|Aug-12-05|| ||Jim Bartle: "This kid"? How old is he? Not old enough to have any nerves yet, it seems.|
|Aug-12-05|| ||vinohradska: ReikiMaster, I also thought 27. c6 was a key move. Black is basically forced for two turns after that, allowing white to take the pawn on e6 without having to lose his own pawn on g5.|
I can't see any other move for white (at 27) that is better. Everything else gives black too much breathing space which would spell doom.
|Aug-12-05|| ||zb2cr: <
ajile: White threatens RxR NxR, QxN+ KD7, QxR! BxQ, Pg8Q correct?>
Right. And the two obvious defensive tries fail:
32. ... Rxh8; 33. gxh8=Q+, Ng8; 34. Qhxg8#. (the Bishop at e7 is pinned).
32. ... Bd5; 33. Rxg8+, Nxg8; 34. Qxd5 (with a double attack), Rd8; 35. Qxg8+, Kd7; 36. Qxd8+, Bxd8; 37. g8=Q.
|Aug-12-05|| ||DanRoss53: <ajile> This one looks similar... http://www.unclesgames.com/product_...|
|Aug-12-05|| ||ajile: Found it.
|Aug-12-05|| ||Montreal1666: A very good game against a 2700 player. 12...c5 is new in this database. Maybe not the best move.|
|Aug-14-05|| ||patzer2: White's 16. Bg6!! is a deep demolition of pawn structure sacrifice that seems to have even the computers initially confused into thinking Black is better.|
However, as it plays out, White seems to maintain a long and lasting initiative and advantage that is very difficult for Black to counter.
|Aug-14-05|| ||patzer2: Note that everything through White's 14th was previously played in Ganguly vs G Dizdar, 2004. So, it's not inconceivable that White had saved up 16. Bg6!! as a prepared variation. Even so, it's a quite deep (and apparently sound) variation that initially had my computers incorrectly analyzing it as an advantage for Black. |
So, prepared or not, 16. Bg6!! is a great positional sacrifice worthy of study.
|Aug-14-05|| ||patzer2: Here's an article mentioning GM Berg with a recent picture: http://www.chesscenter.com/twic/eve.... Only recently attaining the GM title at age 20, he may well be an up and coming star.|
|Aug-23-05|| ||aragorn69: Lubosh Kavalek calls it "an instant classic" : http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dy...|
|Sep-05-05|| ||atrifix: According to GM Neil McDonald, after 27... Bxg5+ 28. Kb1 Bxc6 29. Qxe6+ Kf8 30. Qxc6 Re8 31. f3 Black should be able to hold, but Kavalek disagrees. McDonald thinks Black isn't lost until 28... Bb7, when he says that if Black plays 28... Kf8 29. f4 Rxf4! 30. Qxc6 Rd8 it may be possible to survive. Regardless of the theoretical evaluation, I'm very skeptical of the practical consequences of this line.|
I think that 14... h6 must be played, as in the above-mentioned Ganguly vs G Dizdar, 2004.
|Sep-16-05|| ||olav dalkeith: 26.c6 was brilliant. Such a quiet but effective move. Preventing both Nc5 and Ng5.|
|Dec-22-05|| ||PhilFeeley: This game is analysed extensively on the e3e5.com website. What's really interesting is the French is Bareev's favourite opening!|
|Aug-16-07|| ||whiteshark: This game is completely rounded!|
|Jan-25-08|| ||timhortons: 14th....nf6 according to larry christiansen is a lossing move...better is 14...h6|
|Jan-25-08|| ||timhortons: the problem start with blacks 14th ...nf6 and hes 16th...hxg6 make the problem worst when he open his h file...these has been discuss by larry christiansen at icc|
|Apr-24-13|| ||Xeroxx: the pieces are flying all over the place.|
