|Feb-12-06|| ||TheAlchemist: A great game by White. The Rook is immune in view of Rf1 mate.|
|Oct-06-07|| ||syracrophy: 24...♖xd8 25.♖f1+ ♔e8 26.♗g6#|
|Jul-23-09|| ||AugustAle: Pirc-fect Unzicker|
|Jul-23-09|| ||lzromeu: why black moves 17...kg7? why not Ke7? to protect the rook...|
|Jul-23-09|| ||mertangili: <Izromeu> if 17...Ke7 18. Bxg5+ Kd7 19. Rxd8+ Kc7 20. exd6+ Kc6 21. Rxc8+ and black is devastated.|
|Jul-23-09|| ||whiteshark: And here is how <Perecz-Stroika> ended: L Perecz vs Nunn, 1979|
|Jul-23-09|| ||Dr. Funkenstein: white spoke freely about the need to destroy black's castled position with a terrific attack|
|Jul-23-09|| ||sonsurvivor: 18...Nc6! Rxd6 Nxe5 Bxe6 Re7 Bb3 Ac4+ + -|
|Jul-23-09|| ||DiscoJew: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perest...
|Jul-23-09|| ||randomsac: Nice way of weaving a mating net. Ouch!|
|Jul-23-09|| ||atahualpa yupanqui: I calculate all by myself so I can be wrong but my continuation will be |
24:Rc4 25:g3 25:Rd4+ 26:Ke3 26:Bb5 and if 27: Kxd4 then 27:Nc6 forking king and rook (after rook passed away black also treat to take the dark bishop with his king
as I said I calculate that by myself and my rating should not be over 600 so...
|Jul-23-09|| ||gofer: 18... Nc6! 19 Rxd6 Nxe5 20 Bxe6 (suicide) Re7 21 Bb3 Nc4+ is a win for black|
18... Nc6! 19 Rxd6 Nxe5 20 Bb3... and it all looks like a draw to me ...
18... Nc6! 19 Rxc8 Rxc8 20 Bxe6 Re8 21 Bxf7 Kxf7 22 bxc3 Rxe5 23 Kf2 and it still looks like a draw to me ...
I think white was lucky!
|Jul-23-09|| ||kevin86: What a game! There are more white pieces in the enemy camp than there are black pieces-active ones,anyway|
|Jul-23-09|| ||fm avari viraf: I must admit that this is a superb game! A thrilling battle fought elegantly till the mission accomplished.|
|Jul-23-09|| ||wanabe2000: Nice history <whiteshark> of this specific opening. Thank you.|
|Jul-23-09|| ||SirChrislov: Black loses because he didn't mobilize all his pieces. on the other hand, all of wht's forces join in the attack. when you're blk, you can't afford to go undeveloped, especially with such a pasive defence. end of story.|
|Jul-23-09|| ||SirChrislov: Like GM Eduard Gufeld would say in his countless lectures, |
First you develop, then you put the baby in his crib(castle your king) and once the rooks are mobilized, then you make a phone call to the chief and say:
'Commander, the troops are ready for battle!'.
When analizing our games, he'd always say: wht/blk lost because he attacked prematurely, without first completing development.
|Jul-23-09|| ||WhiteRook48: I don't get 17...Kg7|
|Jul-23-09|| ||gofer: I now see <whiteshark>'s post! So white was lucky! The opening is flawed after 18 Rxd8, but maybe there is something better for white before this...? But I would recon that Mr Nunn had done his homework and the whole opening is leading to problems for white... ...which is why he was so keen to follow the same route! |
Like taking candy from a baby...
|Jul-24-09|| ||SirChrislov: <WhiteRook48: I don't get 17...Kg7>|
What's not to get?
If 17...Ke7?? 18.Bxg5+ Kd7 19. Rxd8+ Kc6 or 19...Kc7 20.exd6+ and blk loses his QB.

|Apr-16-13|| ||GrahamClayton: The sacrifice with 9. hxg6 was all the rage in the 70's - today the prudent 9. ♕xd4 is the more popular line.|
|Apr-16-13|| ||perfidious: Wonder whether White's fertile imagination considered 9.hxg6 before playing 9.Qxd4 in Bronstein vs F Palmiotto, 1958.|
