|Mar-21-08|| ||whiteshark: Poor Bogo, got smashed in 22 moves. But where went he wrong ?|
|Mar-21-08|| ||Calli: Hmm 19...Bxe5 20.Nb6 wins. This suggests that 18...Qc6 is better than Qd7 in the game because it prevents Nb6. Then 19.Bxe5 Bxe5 20.Qxe5 Qxa4 21.Qxd5+ Be6 22.Qxb7+ Qd7 23.Qxd7+ Bxd7 is good for Bogo. Long analysis, wrong analysis?|
|Mar-21-08|| ||crwynn: Did he really go wrong as late as that? To me 11...Qb6 and 12...Bf2 was a cry for help....|
|Mar-21-08|| ||RookFile: Well, give Bogo a break, he must have been disappointed not to sweep the match.|
|Mar-21-08|| ||Calli: Nimzowitsch had poor results around 1920 and he attributed it to what the war had done to his mind, but, as far as I know, never revealed his experiences during WWI.|
|Mar-22-08|| ||jessicafischerqueen: Hello <RookFile>
Cripes man why don't you open a forum?
Just my bi-annual thank you for all the analysis you have posted on games pages.
I'm going through <Karpov v. Kasparov> I and II,>, <Life and Games of Tal>, and a half other games colllections and as always I frequently find useful and often humorous pieces of analysis by you on the games.
You and <Notyetagm> turn up the most.
THANK YOU <Rookfile>, I enjoy your posts very much.
|Mar-23-08|| ||beatgiant: As long as we're giving thanks, I'll put in a word for the incredibly instructive works of <Calli> on this site.|
<18...Qc6 is better than Qd7>
White can try 18...Qc6 19. Bxh7 Qxa4 20. c3. Then if 20...B retreats, 21. Qh5+ looks too strong. Or 20...g6 21. cxd4 Bf5 22. Bxe5 looks like White's attack still has some steam. What say you?
|Mar-23-08|| ||Calli: Yes, you are right about retreating the B. Probably best to give back the piece via 20.c3 e4 21.cxd4 Be6 and White can gain a pawn 22.Qh5+ Ke7 23.Qg5 Qe8 24.Qxg7+|

Instead of 11...Qb6 (and playing vs. sq f2) I would always prefer <11...Bd6> with e.g. <12.Qe2 Rf8 13.f4 Kg8>
