|Oct-02-05|| ||OhioChessFan: "Mr. Morozevich, I killed the spider on a5 and there are no more coming down from the ceiling."|
|Oct-02-05|| ||Hesam7: <OhioChessFan> LoL. That was a good one.|
|Oct-03-05|| ||dhotts: The source of Moro's downfall was not taking control of the c-file with 40.Qc3. Then he needs to work on controlling the 7th rank if Black does not exhcange at least one rook.|
|Oct-06-05|| ||schnarre: If Black's kingside pawns could be locked down, then White should be able to promote the a or b pawn; I was looking at 38. R7c6 Qf5+ 39. Qe4 as a possibility.|
|Oct-22-05|| ||DutchDunce: <By the way, Kasparov was thought to be the best 1.d4 player ever!> Sorry for missing the context a few pages back. I meant in the World Championship 1990 only. Out of 12 whites he started 11 with e4 and the 12th with Nf3. I was trying to establish that there could not have been any black wins with the KID in that match. There weren't any black wins in the tournament at all.|
Actually looking back at Hesam's original post, that Kaspy didn't use a single 1.d4 in the match was completely irrelevant.
|Nov-15-05|| ||euripides: Interesting pawn sacrifices by both players in the middlegame. Mihalevski on chesspublishing.com suggests 29...Nf4 is a mistake allowing 30 h5 with a powerful attack.|
|Nov-23-05|| ||patzer2: IMO 31. Nd5!? contributed significantly to Morozevich's loss in this game. By seeking a risky tactical solution, instead of the patient positional attacking alternative in 31. Qg4!, Morozevich sowed the seeds of his own defeat in this game.|
|Nov-23-05|| ||patzer2: GM Shipov, in his analysis at http://www.chesspro.ru/events/sanlu..., supports 31. Qg4! as a win for White, attacking Black's weakened castled position. |
Fritz 8 gives the line 31. Qg4! Nd4 32. Rg2 Qf7 (32...Rg8 33. f4 ) 33. Bxa6 as a win for White.
|Jan-31-07|| ||Trudodyr: A very tense game between both Russians at san luis.|
|Jan-30-08|| ||PAWNTOEFOUR: great game!!! even though i didn't understand most of it...........but i've seen plenty of battles between trudodyr and svidler before......on playchess....trudodyr,you need to come out of hiding,man|
|Sep-15-11|| ||sevenseaman: As good as they come from the top players. Svidler has been tap-dancing around Moro's proposed grave.|
|Sep-15-11|| ||al wazir: I can't help feeling that 35. Rc7+ would have given white better chances. |
If 35...Rf7, then 36. Qa7 Rf8 37. Rxf7+ Rxf7 38. Rc7 Rxc7 39. Qxc7+ Kh6 40. Qc1+, and white can probably draw the endgame.
If 35...Kh6 (35...Kh8 36. Qxg6), then 36. Qe3+ g5 (36...Kh5 37. Rh7#) 37. hxg5+ fxg5 38. Rh1+ Kg6 39. Rhh7, to be followed by Rcg7+ or Qa7, and I think black is a goner.
|Sep-15-11|| ||vsiva1: what about 52. b4|
|Sep-15-11|| ||Cemoblanca: Some thoughts:
22...Rb8! [22...Ba8? 23.Bxa6]
25.Nxc5! Qxc5 [25...fxg5?? 26.Ne6+!!]
26...Qc6 [26...Qxg1!? 27.Rhxg1 a5! 28.b3 Rfd8 (28...Nf4!?)]
31.Nd5?! [31.Na2!; 31.Qg4!]
34.Bxe6?! [34.Qg4!; 34.h5!]
Here is the critical line:
35.Qa7+ [35.Rc7+!? Rf7! (35...Kh6?? 36.Qe3!!) 36.R1c6 (36.Qa7 Rbf8! 37.Qb7 Kg7 38.R1c3) 36...Qf5+ 37.Ka2 Rxc7 38.Rxc7+ Kh6 39.Qa7 Rh8 40.Qe3+ Qf4 and the position is unclear]
38...Qf5+! 39.Ka1?! [39.Ka2!?]
41...Rd8! 42.Qe2 Qf4! 43.Ra7!? Kh6 44.Rc7?! [44.Rb7!?]
46.Ka2 [46.Qe4?! Rxf3 47.Qa8 Kh5!? 48.Rh7+ Kg4 49.Qd5 e4!]
48.a4 [Rh7+ looks interesting, but after Kg4 49.Qc4+ Rd4 50.Qe6+ Qf5 51.Qc6 e4! is strong.]
48...Qd5! 49.Rc4 [49.Qc4 doesn't change much.]
54...Rc2! 55.b4?? Qd3+! followed by #
|Sep-15-11|| ||lopium: Good cemoblanca, but what's wrong with 25...gxf5 26.Ne6+? Black would be a pawn down just like in the variation played. So why is it bad to remove queens?|
|Sep-15-11|| ||iroozdar: Dear vsiva1
i think if 52.b4 then
and Black is win
|Sep-15-11|| ||kevin86: A pity-white defends the rook,but lets the king go unprotected.|
|Sep-15-11|| ||Cemoblanca: <lopium>
Sorry dude, but according to my calculations after 25...fxg5?? 26.Ne6+!! Kf7 27.Nxc7 I would say black is Bishop and Pawn down! ;0)
|Sep-15-11|| ||SirChrislov: He made ceviche out of Morozevich. bravo!
They who tango must pay like Alexando.
|Sep-15-11|| ||JamesT Kirk: 55.Kb4|
|Sep-15-11|| ||jcaz6: How about "Svidler on the rook?"|
|Sep-15-11|| ||Shams: <jcaz6> I'm pretty sure that pun has been done. The reason many of these are so marginal is because, well, they scraped the bottom of the barrel years ago, and kept scraping, now they're searching for any microscopic bit of the barrel that might yet remain. It's part of the fun of following along, actually. There's something very Zen about it.|
|Sep-15-11|| ||Phony Benoni: <Shams> Not exactly. We've had <Svidler on the Roof> used twice for Svidler vs Topalov, 2004 (May-11-06, May-04-09). |
There must be something Svidler's games that causes repeat puns. Today's was also used for the same game on Oct-02-05.
|Sep-22-11|| ||lopium: I see now Cemoblanca! Thank you.|
|Mar-08-12|| ||screwdriver: This game came with a picture. Technology!|
