|Jun-29-09|| ||gofer: Hi <MostlyAverageJoe>, I agree! After 22 Nxa6, 22 ... e5 does cause some issues. So probably 22 Nxa6 is a little premature and white should wait until the knight is actually in trouble... |
But do you think that perhaps black was a little premature in resigning or do you think that 19 Qxg7 left them a bit shell-shocked and not really wanting to risk being beaten up even more!
|Jun-29-09|| ||newzild: A pretty finish, but not too difficult to spot for players familiar with the mating pattern involving a bishop on the long dark diagonal and a knight on h6. An experienced player familiar with this pattern would automatically ponder the queen sacrifice, given the latent firepower emanating from b2. From there, most would see the possibility of a Nf5 double-check and start looking for a line-clearing sacrifice of the Nd4.|
|Jun-29-09|| ||Notagm: Newzild: You say 'An experienced player familiar with this pattern would automatically ponder the queen sacrifice, given the latent firepower emanating from b2.'|
You seem to forget that Black is a 2600 rated GM, and didn't see it. I'm sure many an experienced player would have missed the combination.
|Jun-29-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 14...N6d7 seems the decisive mistake|
|Jun-29-09|| ||kevin86: The Cavalier take over: After 20... ♕c8 21 ♘f5+ ♔g8 22 ♘h6#.Remind anyone of Lebron?|

..and don't forget to read my massive tome, Some of the Dharma from Viking press.
|Jun-29-09|| ||Dimitrije Mandic: What a queen sac!!!|
|Jun-29-09|| ||True2theGame: A beautiful and instructive game!|
|Jun-29-09|| ||Samagonka: It takes big balls to play moves like 19Qxg7! Antonio had big balls!|
|Jun-29-09|| ||ruskyboy12: Looks like a pretty even game...|
|Jun-29-09|| ||True2theGame: <Samagonka> I respectfully disagree, the attack so well exucuted up to the Queen sac that it was actually called for in the position. The Motif had been webbed beautifully and the mating net was inevitable. Not something you see very often in IM+ level games...|
|Jun-29-09|| ||nimzo knight: I wasn't aware of this mating pattern. Really cool, always something new to learn in chess!|
|Jun-29-09|| ||Nf3em: ... read FORCING CHESS MOVES by Charles Hertan ... then, you will see the difference in own game that you will be able to see what is called "FORCING MOVES" ...|
|Jun-29-09|| ||njchess: Nice ending that painfully illustrates Black's errant 16. ... g6?. The queen sac was a stroke of genius.|
|Jun-30-09|| ||newzild: <Notagm> Sure, a GM missed it. But GMs make mistakes just like the rest of us - although admittedly somewhat less often... I think if the queen sac was offered as a daily puzzle, it would be about a Thursday difficulty - quite "gettable" for many of the people frequenting this site.|
|Jul-07-09|| ||newzild: Wow, this is ironic. I fell for exactly the same mate in a blitz game today:|

|Jul-22-09|| ||fierychess: Now that's what you call a tactics!!!Pretty neat eh...|
|Jul-22-09|| ||ycbaywtb: a knight and a double check will do that to you, very good to know he could give up the Q that way|
|Nov-03-09|| ||hallu45: 27 Qxg7+ !! What a shock !|
|Nov-26-09|| ||searchforbobby1: thanks for showing this very interesting game.|
|Sep-17-11|| ||meppi: After 10. Nxd4 white owns d4 it is hard to see how black can contest it without playing e5 and thus creating a hole on d5 (no c pawn + backwards black d pawn). positionally after move 10 white has a very good game!|
|Oct-03-11|| ||GreenLantern: 19. White to move would make a good Tues/Weds puzzle|
