|Nov-07-05|| ||aragorn69: Spending 30 odd hours on this game (with the help of Fritz!) and not seeing (look in the box!) 30.Qb5 Kf7? 31.Rxc6! is a waste of time.
<AJ> unfortunately never ceases to create ways to get ridiculed. He should (honestly!) seek treatment for his masochistic impulses.|
|Nov-07-05|| ||LIFE Master AJ: I also don't consider it that big a deal. As I said previously, to wait a move or two, and then play the same moves - but with a different move order - is called a transposition. |
IF - and when - a titled player says that Kg2 was incorrect, then I would be willing to look at it again, right now I consider it a completely useless and moot point.
How about aksing Ray Keene to look at it? I value his opinion.
|Nov-07-05|| ||KingG: <LMAJ> Why don't you ask one of your many chess engines to look at it? I can't believe you think there is a transposition. Give some lines to show the transposition. Or even better, show how the line i gave doesn't lead to a winning position.|
|Nov-07-05|| ||aragorn69: Sigh, sigh. There is no question of transposition in <KingG>'s analysis (as he expressly stated himself). The question is not about the respective merits of 30.Kg2 / 30.Qb5, but your suggestion of 30.-Kf7 (after 30.Qb5) which, until you prove otherwise, is a bad blunder. Try reasoning about facts, please.|
|Nov-08-05|| ||aragorn69: I, <use the same phrasing> as hayton3 ?? I only wish !!|
|Nov-09-05|| ||aw1988: Anyway, getting back to the game, I will never have the guts to sacrifice the knight as is done here.|
|Dec-15-05|| ||notyetagm: What a shame that someone (Ivanchuk) can play chess like this and will not be in the next World Championship cycle.|
|Dec-18-05|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Just a final note ... I have gotten a good half-dozen e-mails ... and they all thought my analysis was superb.|
|Dec-18-05|| ||you vs yourself: <chancho> I must admit that it was a very good game. But the analysis is priceless! <Ng5+!! What???> AJ's strength is probably(maybe?) his uncontrollable emotion!|
|Dec-18-05|| ||TopaLove: IŽd like to ask two questions about this game. First, why did White play 6.♗xf6 ? Second, why not 12 ... exd5 ?|
|Dec-19-05|| ||notyetagm: <TopaLove> White plays 6 ♗xf6 because in the resulting position his e4-knight is the best minor piece on the board.|
|Dec-19-05|| ||StraightLarsen: Interesting game....|
|Dec-25-05|| ||LIFE Master AJ: This game is almost as complicated as Judit Polgar's game against Kasimdzhanov from the World Championship tournament in San Luis, ARG; 2005. (Judit Polgar vs Kasimdzhanov, 2005)|
|Dec-28-05|| ||Whitehat1963: Ivanchuk is clearly one of the most entertaining players in the last 50 years!|
|Dec-28-05|| ||syracrophy: 41...Nxf7 42.Rxf8+ Kg7 43.Rg8++ and 41...Qxf7 42.Nxf7 Kxf7 43.Rxf8+ and black's completely lost!|
|Feb-21-06|| ||notyetagm: Anyone think this game will win the Best Game Prize for Chess Informant 94 when it is announced in April?|
|Jun-26-06|| ||whatthefat: Wow, <KingG>'s utter obliteration of <LMAJ> was almost as entertaining as this incredible game! And without a doubt, sound.|
|Jun-26-06|| ||KingG: I had almost completely forgotten about all this. The cg.com administrators seem to have deleted a few of the posts, so parts of my 'conversation' with <LMAJ> look a bit odd. The funny thing is, before he started attacking me on this page, i had nothing against him. But after this, i understood why 90% of users here are on his ignore list. All it takes is a polite disagreement for him to start verbally attacking you like a maniac.|
Around the same time, we were analysing this game, Judit Polgar vs Kasimdzhanov, 2005, but that turned sour as well.
I hope AJ has sought out professional help since then, but i doubt it somehow.
|Jun-26-06|| ||The Zorro: That knight sacrifice was something!!
How to turn a boring french into a entertaining game.
|May-30-08|| ||whiteshark: With the experience of this game I think that <11...c5> was premature. Although the intention of attacking white's d4-pawn is strategically right, with hindsight, it only opened the position for white's better developed pieces.|
So maybe <11...Qd6 12.Re1 b4> is a viable alternative.
|May-30-08|| ||whiteshark: Undiscovered territory is <26.Ng5>!|

Actually it's <26.Ng5!! >, a sunday puzzle. Anticipate the worst! :D
|Jan-13-09|| ||WhiteRook48: this is an awesome game by Ivanchuk.|
|Jan-26-09|| ||WhiteRook48: and great sacrifices|
|Feb-01-09|| ||WhiteRook48: the last move was awesome and obvious|
|May-07-11|| ||OhioChessFan: I think 30. Qb5 might be something like a Thursday/Friday level move, hardly hard to find. White playing Rb5 might be another improvement any number of times in the 30's. The Black Queen is a sitting duck.|
