|Oct-23-06|| ||Wild Bill: Junge was 16 when this game was played. Later, he became an officer in the German Army. In April 1945, just three weeks before the war ended, he was killed at Welle near Hamburg. He was 21.|
|Oct-23-06|| ||al wazir: Either Rc1 or Bc3 would have been better than 22. b5. What was white thinking?|
|Oct-23-06|| ||Almaren: Wow!!! The most amaizing was 26...Bc5! What a shot in the end of pretty combination!|
|Oct-23-06|| ||thesonicvision: 12..g5!
it takes a LOT of guts to play that.
my patzer self cannot comprehend
any of black's moves from 12
i just can't play ugly positions.
i wish this game were annotated.
|Oct-23-06|| ||dramas79: Maan, a great pun.. as we say, the pun is more terrible than the sword.|
|Oct-23-06|| ||kevin86: An irresistable set of moves! Black gives up the queen only to force a pawn home to regain the queen,ending a rook ahead-a neat loan at shark rates.|
|Oct-23-06|| ||sfm: <Tenderfoot: So, this guy was a Nazi?>
Hey, don't hold it against him. The majority of Germans suppored the National Socialist party. Hitler gave pep-talks about the imminent danger to Germany from insane state leaders and how he would install freedom and democracy in the countries he bombed to pieces. He fooled some of the people some of the time...
An outstanding game, everything on the edge, right to the end. 19.-,Bc5! is a real cute move!|
|Oct-23-06|| ||schnarre: Wonder if Black is any relation to the Philosopher!?|
|Oct-23-06|| ||soberknight: <sfm> That doesn't make it okay. A person still must answer to his conscience, his sense of right and wrong. Not that that has anything to do with chess. I was really impressed with ...Bc5!!, the "unguarded guard" as Tim Krabbe refers to such an interposition from check.|
|Oct-23-06|| ||Chess Carnival: <schnarre: Wonder if Black is any relation to the Philosopher!?>|
The pun gets it somehow.. From Wikipedia:
"The episode title [The Jung and the Restless] is a play on words to the soap opera <The Young and the Restless> and the analytical psychologist <Carl Jung>."
|Oct-24-06|| ||sfm: <soberknight: That doesn't make it okay. A person still must answer to his conscience, his sense of right and wrong...>
Right. I'd love to continue this dicussion but we are not allowed to do that here!|
|Oct-25-06|| ||schnarre: <Chess Carnival> Thanks for the referrence!|
|Oct-25-06|| ||Chess Carnival: You're welcome!|

|Mar-10-13|| ||lost in space: At the key moment of the game - after 21...0-0-0 Black had already decisive advantage - according to shredder:

shredder 12, d=22/63 (overnight run)
A: -2,41; 22. Rc1 b5 23. axb5 axb5 24. Qxf7 Qxf7 25. Rxf7 Rh7 26. Rxh7 Bxh7 27. Nf1 Rd3 28. h3 Be4+...
B: -2,48; 22. b5 Be2 23. Rc1 Bxf3+ 24. Nxf3 axb5 25. axb5 Qa5 26. Rxc4+ Kb8 27. Bd4 h5
C: -3,98; Bc3 ....
So 22. b5 was not that bad; second best move in a situation were also the best move is losing. And from a human perspective the difference between -2,41 and -2,48 is not existing. Means 22. Rc1 and 22. b5 are both equally good/bad
|Mar-10-13|| ||FSR: Klaus was a very strong player. Pachman wrote about him in Pachman's Decisive Games. He died a very premature death during World War II. Since he was an officer in Hitler's army, however, I have a hard time working up much sympathy for him.|
|Mar-10-13|| ||lost in space: Here now the next key position:
21...0-0-0 22. b5
shredder 12, d=20
A: -6,12; 22...c3!! 23. Bxc3 Qxc3 24. Qc4+ Bxc4 25. Rxc3 Rxd2+ 26. Kh1 Kb8 27. Rxc4 axb5

B: -2,0; 22...Be2 23. Rg3 h5 24. Re1 Bd3...
C: -2,0; 22...h5 23. g5 Be2 24. Rfa3 Kb8....

Yeah. Have the same issues with Bobby and his antisemitism

I cut Bobby some slack because he was crazy and, though he ranted like a lunatic (which he was), AFAIK didn't do anything to actually hurt Jews. YMMV.
|Mar-13-13|| ||lost in space: After move 12. a4 we have the following sitiation were Junge played 12...g5|
I decided to make a deep ply analyze to see, if g5 appears and how good it is. For the first days my comp had no 12..g5 as top 3 move, but later - at day 5 .....
shredder 2, d=26/69
A: 0,00; 12...Qc7 13. Qe2 Rc8 14. Nf2 Nxe5 15. fxe5 Be7 16. Nf1 Qc4 17. Qd1 Bg6 18. Bd2 Bh4 19. Rf4 Bg5 20. Rf2 Bh4
B: 0,00; 12....Rc8 13. Rf2 h5 14. Nf1 Be7 15. h3 Nxe5 16. dxe5 Bh4 17. Re2 Be4 18. Be3 g5....
C: 0,00; 12...<g5> 13. Nb3 Rh7 14. Be3 Qc7 15. Qe2 Be4 16. Nd2 gxf4 17. bxf4 Bxe5 18. dxe5 Qb6+ 19. Qf2 Qxf2+ 20. Kxf2 Bf5 21. a5 Rc8 22. Ra3
So 12...g5 is not only good it is as good as the ither more natural locking moves. I would play here either 12...Rc8 or 12...Qc7
