|Apr-07-06|| ||devilwolfdog: I guess this game proves what my Dad used to tell me:|
"Son, four connected passed pawns on the seventh rank are worth 8 in the bush"
|Apr-07-06|| ||LPeristy: To play b2+ after c2 is just plain sadistic! Haha!|
|Apr-07-06|| ||Confuse: <n30> - _ -|
|Apr-07-06|| ||schnarre: The name says it all!|
|Apr-07-06|| ||Knight13: More space means more room, more room means more percentage of victory, more percentage of victory means more percent of crushing through, more percentage of crushing through means pawnslaught.|
|Apr-07-06|| ||kevin86: Black advances four pawns to the seventh!!!! Surprise! White promotes first!|
Chess is a game but it is also art.
|Apr-07-06|| ||weisyschwarz: Looks like a game between two mobsters.|
|Apr-08-06|| ||kevin86: Mate follows soonest after 62 a2 e3|
|Apr-10-06|| ||schnarre: I think Knight13 summed it up nicely!|
|Apr-10-06|| ||blingice: < cade: <anyone who gets to that final position and doesn't capture the promoted Q is bad. Furthermore, black couldn't have played his four pawns worse. Finally, why is the final position exactly winning? I know that black has a pretty big advantage, but I don't see an imminent mate.>|
Hahahaha... You are obviously a huge patzer.>
And you are obviously a geek who sits at home and insults anonymous people because if you insulted someone to their face they could and would beat you up. Thanks for adding no value to the Kibitzer's Corner. I, at least, asked a question, whereas you just spew nonsense at someone who looked offhand at the game at 2 AM.
<cade> Message me in my forum if you want to play a game. Please.
On a normal note, it's interesting that <CG.com> made a pure-chess pun, rather than incorporating one of the most punnable names in the database into it.

After 62. Ka2, Black plays 62. ... Re8, which threatens mate-in-one. The threatened mate cannot be prevented, only delayed by sacrificing one or both White Rooks. The idea of pulling the Rook back to its own end of the board for redeployment on a new file finds its most famous instance in this game:
Karpov vs Taimanov, 1977 .
|Apr-05-07|| ||keypusher: like an extreme version of this game:
Spassky vs Petrosian, 1966
|Apr-05-07|| ||keypusher: Lee also lost a couple of classics to Lasker:
F J Lee vs Lasker, 1899
Lasker vs F J Lee, 1899
|Jun-17-07|| ||ruelas007: On move 57 the game reaches a similar but more modern position of :MacDonnell vs La Bourdonnais, 1834|
|Jul-24-07|| ||Rook in the 7th rank: According to Tim Krabbe, this game is a record: most adjacent pawns on 7th rank.|
|Jan-19-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 52...b2+!! what a game!!
Why Lee did not resign earlier is a puzzle...
|Aug-03-11|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: As long as chess is played, devoted fans of the game shall remember Hector William Shoosmith, not for his strength (rather weak), not for his successes (rather limited), not for his games (rather few), not even for this one game (rather flawed), but for one unbelievable position; 57...Black to play.|
|Aug-03-11|| ||perfidious: As the fiery magma sweeps all before it......
This is the first time I've seen this amazing game-as an exemplar of the power of pawns, this is in the same class as the following masterpiece: Gufeld vs Kavalek, 1962.
|Dec-19-11|| ||Penguincw: A lot of paws on the second rank. More than the McDonnell vs La Bourdonnais, 1834 game I saw.|
|May-08-12|| ||FSR: <Rook in the 7th rank: According to Tim Krabbe, this game is a record: most adjacent pawns on 7th rank.>|
Not any more: M Matto vs A Mossiaguine, 2008
|May-09-12|| ||FSR: I e-mailed Tim Krabbé, and he's keeping Lee-Shoosmith as the record-holder, because he (reasonably enough) doesn't regard the five connected passed pawns on the seventh in Matto-Mossiaguine as a "real" finish.|
|May-09-12|| ||Petrosianic: "Real" finish is a pretty slippery and subjective term, which arbitarily excludes certain entries. For instance, maybe THIS game isn't a real finish either. 57... b2+ isn't really a necessary move. Black wins quite handily with d1/q.|
|May-10-12|| ||FSR: <Petrosianic> I'm paraphrasing. To be precise, he said:|
<Thanks, but I'm afraid this kind of game doesn't count. When I was 10, I sometimes asked an [opponent] not to resign, but to let me promote to 6 Bishops etc. Lee and Shoosmith were serious gentlem[e]n, I assume.>
|Apr-21-13|| ||Everett: The Shoo fits.|
