|Jan-14-06|| ||DeepBlade: Wow, this game shows the clash between Classical and Modern chess. It all came down on the endgame.|
|Jan-14-06|| ||Eric Schiller: <deepblade> Well, it did come down to the endgame but the key was the combination at move 31. I set up the winning endgame by delaying recovery of the exchange. My 38th move sealed the victory, though it was already a winning position.|
You are right in noting the classical approach. I took the center, created weaknesses in Black's pawn structure, then got a rook to the seventh thanks to the central control.
|Jan-15-06|| ||DeepBlade: The opening looks more like an Alekhine's Defense, Chase variation.|
I really like 33.Nxc7, the Ra8 is already attacked and the other Rd8 can be won by the Nxe6+ fork, althou the combination to reach such move is more important. You transposed between middle-game to endgame with a little but effective combination, which was the highlight of this game.
Another strong point was, you had castled Queenside, got your Rooks out, and in the (later) endgame you had 3 deadly chained pawns on the Q-side.
48. ...e1Q looks like a better option to me, but Black's Rook is still in deep trouble with your passed pawnchain.
|Feb-07-07|| ||Themofro: Love your handling of the opening, looks very similair to the four-pawn vriation of the Alekine, one reasn why i stopped playing both the Alekine and the King's Indian.|
|Feb-07-07|| ||keypusher: <Eric Schiller> Even using your rule -- don't resign until the weakest player in the room can see why (did I get that right?) -- I think your opponent played at least a dozen moves too many. What a fine game, though!|
|Jun-12-07|| ||FSR: I would call this an Alekhine's, Four Pawns Attack, rather than a Norwegian Defense. 3...Nh5!? (rather than the game's 3...Nd5) is the characteristic Norwegian Defense move. What happens if Black plays 31...Qxg7 rather than 31...Kxg7?|
|Jun-12-07|| ||Eric Schiller: Yes, folks, it is clearly an Alekhine Four Pawn. I was much more confrontational in the openings back then.|
Yes, 31...Qxg7 would have been better, then Black is still ahead even after I grab the e-pawn.
|Jun-12-07|| ||Jake Robertson: I mainly study games between players like fischer and kalme, but this was a refreshing new experience, the styles were amazingly diffrent|
|Jan-11-14|| ||Richard Taylor: Good game!! Who needs Fischer when you have Schiller?|

Who needs a Mercedes Benz when you have a skateboard?
|Jan-12-14|| ||Richard Taylor: Eric Schiller is a member here. He was very ill last time I heard. But he played well here. Fischer was a Patzer.|
