|May-12-09|| ||Infohunter: I've seen some King-march games before, but never the likes of this. And White's 19th move--never would I have thought of that one!|
|May-15-09|| ||I Like Fish: back at keyboard...|
|May-17-09|| ||randomsac: This is a really wild game. With his king scurrying around, I was surprised white weathered the attack. Black just couldn't finish the king off when it was trapped in the corner.|
|May-18-09|| ||I Like Fish: Now...
would that be smoking...
|Oct-24-10|| ||sevenseaman: A great game from both sides. White's final move Rxg7 is a full-blooded punch on the nose. No escape.|
The game is an apt example of hot pursuit and some excellent parrying.
|Oct-09-11|| ||whiteshark: As long as the loo doesn't back up again.|
|Oct-31-11|| ||sevenseaman: Moves are tough to follow. <19. Qa4!> (or Qg4) parries the mate threat
at c4, b4. If <19. dxc6> the R at d8 comes into play making d4
another hit point for the Q. Exchanging the Qs isn't good enough. So Black gets pushed into <19...Qe7+> (the text).|
<25. Nb5> parries Qc7+ threat. <30. d5!> what a resource!
<35. Bg5+!> An effete check but has the merit of releasing the a1 R.
<48. Rg7!!> White is in control now and can handle losing
the R with c8=Q#.
I do not think I'll live to see a hotter game.

<Sneaky: <Real or invented, this game is an immortal.<<<>>>>>>> |
I will second that!
|Mar-15-12|| ||Penguincw: Really crazy game.|
|Jun-22-12|| ||vinidivici: what if 19...bxa4?|
|Jun-22-12|| ||King Death: < vinidivici: what if 19...bxa4?>|
After 19...ba 20.Nc6 looks good enough. White has too much for the queen and once he gets developed it's all over. It'll be Black's king that's in trouble.
|Dec-21-12|| ||DanielBryant: I was disappointed to learn that this one is a composition, but it no doubt still deserves a place on CG. This game is like chess on crack.|
|Mar-17-13|| ||cornflake: Wow. This is one of the most amazing chess games I've ever seen.|
|Mar-17-13|| ||cornflake: <DanielBryant: I was disappointed to learn that this one is a composition, but it no doubt still deserves a place on CG. This game is like chess on crack.>|
Oh. Ok. never mind. That explains the fantastic tactics. If this wasn't a composition I'd rank it as probably one the greatest chess games ever played.
|Jul-03-13|| ||s0030135: In fact,white missed a mate in 3 by Re7+ on the 48th move.|
|Nov-26-13|| ||pattydee: I love White's 19.Qa4 ( 19.Qg3 and White gets mated quickly after 19...Qd4+).|
I disagree with King Death's comment that if 19...ab: 20.Nc6: is good for White. All I see after 20.Nc6:?? is 20...Qc4# 0-1.
A wild and crazy game. I feel sorry for players who avoid these crazy complications. They're missing a lot of fun.
|Apr-21-14|| ||scutigera: I have no idea why people sneer at this game just because it was composed rather than played -- problems are composed, and generally much less realistic. As Max Euwe said about Morphy's Opera Box Game, "While displaying no particularly deep planning, this game possesses an uncommon charm." There's room in chess for charm, I hope. Composed games, labelled as such of course, are a perfectly respectable way to enjoy it.|
|May-25-14|| ||MJCB: The game - even if composed - is nice to enjoy, like R Steel vs NN, 1886 - also suspected to be a composition and also staging a hunted king turning hunter.|
|May-25-14|| ||number 23 NBer: <pattydee> After 19...bxa4, the pawn no longer defends c4, so 20 Nxc6 can't be met by Qc4+, as that simply hangs the queen.|
|Aug-04-16|| ||pumping707: What a wild game...kudos to white...still won the game.|
|Aug-15-16|| ||Zhbugnoimt: Ridiculous composition, but extremely fun. Full of black missing mates though.|
|Oct-25-16|| ||whiteshark: "The white player surely exists, he was an old clubmate of mine. |
<The game however was invented by him.> He is/was probably one of the greatest connaisseurs of the Traxler-variation, certainly in The Netherlands.
You won't find his name in the database though, because <after he joined Baghwan <<<<>>>>> he had his name changed. <The black player doesn't exist.">
