|Nov-02-06|| ||lopium: What a game! See how Acers can change the turn of the game, with 19...b5. His black bishop ainīt well placed and he managed to win that. But I donīt understand the move 25...Qb5.|
|May-14-11|| ||wordfunph: unnecessary 23.♘f2, 23.♖d4 is better.|
|Apr-23-12|| ||Jamboree: 18. Nh3? is the losing move. Totally pointless.
Instead, white could have chosen any one of two options to stay in the game:
a) 18. d7+, keeping Black's king in the center and messing up his ability to develop his rooks; or
b) 18. Qe2 or 18. Qf3, trying to force a tradeoff of the queens as early as possible, to lessen the chances of a mating attack. If black trades on e2, then the N recaptures and holds the f-pawn.
Either one of those was better than 18. Nh3?
After that move, white just flails around uselessly for several moves and then resigns.
I would have chosen both a) and b); first 18. d7+ Ke7 19. Qe2, or possibly 19. Qf3.
|Apr-23-12|| ||rilkefan: Per stockfish, 16.d7+ Ke7 17.Ne2 h5 was equal. 17...Qxe4+ was much stronger. Both of these seem quite natural to me.|
Stockfish suggests 18.Kb2 as less bad than Nh3, but it's not a huge difference (well, -0.8 to -1.3 or so). 18.d7+ isn't as good as above; black's king is fine on e7 and the rooks come to the d file without loss of time: -1.3.
13...Nxa2+ (then ...Qc7+) was much stronger, worth over two pawns. 13.Kb1 was equal. 11.Qe2 was +0.5 for white. 9.Bb5+ and 10.Qe2 (keeping the king in the center for eventual O-O) was even better than that.
|Apr-23-12|| ||newzild: One move that surprised me was 17...Bh6. I expected 17...Bf6, theatening 18...Qxc3+. Of course, Black can meet 18. e5 with 18...Bxe5.|
|Apr-23-12|| ||TheRavenPK: This is funny, just yesterday on GOTD Van Wely vs Acs, 2002 I suggested the pun "Acs is high". Today we have Acers is high, with the same reference to one of Maiden's classic http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Sam...|
|Apr-23-12|| ||green ink: Hmm. Lots of strange moves. White could have turned the tables with 24. Txb4. After 24. - Qa2+ 25. Kd1 it's black who is in trouble.|
|Apr-23-12|| ||erniecohen: <Jamnboree,rilkefan> Actually, the final losing move isn't until 24. ♘e4, thanks to the following comedy of errors: 16. ♕xg4? (♘e2 =) ♘xc3 17.♗xc3 ♗h6? (♕xe4+ ) 18. ♘h3? (♕e2 =) 0-0 19. e5? (♕f3) b5?? (♕a2+ 0-1) 20. ♖d3?? (♖d4 =) b4? (♕a2+ 0-1) 21. ♖b1 a5 22. ♕f3 ♖fb8? (♕a2) 23. ♘f2?? (♖b3 =) a4?? (♗xf4 0-1) 24. ♘e4?? (♖xb4 )|
|Apr-23-12|| ||lemaire90: A little weird to allow black to push to connected passers like this...|
|Apr-23-12|| ||kevin86: The two connectors will win BIG!|
|Apr-23-12|| ||BlackSheep: I was thinking the same as <TheRavenPK> the pun was the same as yesterday's they must be running them in alphabetical order or something .|
