|Dec-09-05|| ||LaFaro: It is weird to see a game where a top player like Bareev is thoroughly outplayed from a position where he after the opening seems to be slightly better. What a kid...|
|Dec-09-05|| ||Mateo: 29... Kc8? gave to the wonderkid very good winning prospects. Instead 29... Ke6 is better. If 30. Qb7 Be3 and 31... Rh4.|
|Dec-09-05|| ||Akavall: <notyetagm> Thanks, definitly have to give credit to Bareev to the trap. He probably also had to act right at the board so Magnus would fall for it.|
|Nov-20-06|| ||ahmadov: I was considering this game for my collection of blundered games, but I do not think that Qf8 is just a blunder. To me, this is a move played in desparate, as Black still wins with Bc7 and Ra2 if White plays anything else. Or am I missing anything?|
|Nov-20-06|| ||Prugno: <ahmadov> Not quite, in fact the winning move is 43. Qf7! exactly because after 43... Bc7+ 44. Ka6 Ra2+ White can sacrifice the Queen on a2 and then promote his pawn. It would have been a fitting conclusion to a thrilling game.|
With the king lured to b7 by the premature check on f8 this is obviously no longer possible.
|Nov-20-06|| ||ahmadov: <Prugno> Quite right, I missed that one. I thought about Queen sactifice like 43.Qxc3 followed by 43...Bd2 but then Black rook has a chance to take the advancing pawn.|
|Nov-22-06|| ||Squares: Does anybody possess a list of other great swindles. Another marvellous facet of chess!|
|Nov-22-06|| ||pawn to QB4: Hi Squares. Lots of great collections of swindles on the site. You'll love this: Game Collection: Never Resign!.|
|Nov-24-06|| ||Squares: Many thanks pawn to QB4|
|Jul-13-10|| ||al wazir: 7....Bxc2? 8. Nxg7+ Bxg7 9. Qxc2 cxd4 10. Nb5 Bxe5 (10..Na6 11. Nd6+ Kf8 12. Nxb7 Qe7 13. Bxa6) 11. f4 Rxh4 12. Rxh4 Qxh4+ 13. Qf2 Qxg5 (13...Qxf2+ 14. Kxf2 Bg7 15. Nc7+) 14. fxe5 Na6 15. Nd6+ Kd8 16. Nxf7+ Kd7 17. Bb5+ Kc7 18. Bxa6.|
|Jul-13-10|| ||The Famous Chess Cat: My pun!!!
The Not-So-Famous Chess Cat strikes again, delivering some Game-of-the-Day humor on his road to fame. I dare point out that I've capitalized the I in 'LIke', but surely you open-armed gents won't player-hate on my typo.
I've been dreaming of this day for years. At every daybreak I eagerly arise from my dreary slumber, checking the Game-of-the-Day for this very entry of mine. Lately I've given up hope, waking up to some arrogant pun from a more clever man than I. "Mine must not have been that great of a pun," I mumbled to myself, crestfallen.
Oh how wrong I was! Today I shall shine over the world! SUCK IT!!!
|Jul-13-10|| ||HeMateMe: um....I'm kinda glad you only show up once in awhile?|
|Jul-13-10|| ||Once: <The Famous Chess Cat>|
As the homies in the hood might say, respec'!
It's for days like this that we live. You can forget the Nobel prize, the Oscars ceremony, Olympic gold medals, even the world chess championship.
It's like those extremely rare occasions when we find a solution that <dzechiel> has missed or in the pub quiz we are the only one amongst our mates who knows the name for the soft substance on a deer's antlers.
Or winning a game of club chess with a pretty combination. Okay, so it may only be a Monday or Tuesday strength tactic, but we found it, we played it and it worked. And try not to look too smug as you shake the other guy's hand.
Then our chests can swell with pride and we swear that we walk a couple of inches taller for days.
So, today, <The Famous Chess Cat> I salute you. A fine pun and a worthy winner. May your fame continue to increase exponentially.
|Jul-13-10|| ||Shams: Isn't it pronounced buh-RAY-ev?|
|Jul-13-10|| ||bambino3: lol 42...Bf4. how come the 1200 droolers on the ICC never fall for it in rapid|
|Jul-13-10|| ||kellmano: Famous chess cat <I've been dreaming of this day for years. At every daybreak I eagerly arise from my dreary slumber, checking the Game-of-the-Day for this very entry of mine. >|
Do you know how people pronounce Bareev though? I've only heard a few Americans say it, but they seem to say Bar (like the pub) - A (like the capital letter A) - ev (like Kev).
|Jul-13-10|| ||newzild: A great fighting game. Kudos to both players.|
|Jul-13-10|| ||apis7: this is not a game this is craziness|
|Jul-13-10|| ||SuperPatzer77: What an excellent endgame by Evgeny Bareev!! It could have been a masterpiece! Magnus Carlsen played extremely well as White. |
White resigns in lieu of 47. Kb4 Rg5, 48. Kxc3 Rxh5 Now it is all over for White. 0-1
|Jul-13-10|| ||kevin86: A crazy ending! The pawns prevented a stalemate trap---but they were too weak to save the game.|
|Jul-13-10|| ||YetAnotherAmateur: <Prugno> While that line might keep Carlson alive for longer, I doubt it wins, because black is under no obligation to lose his rook with 44. Ra2+.|
43. Qf7 Bc7+
A) 44. Qxc7 Kxc7
45. h5 (g7: Rg2, Ka6: Ra4#) Rg2
46. Kb4 (pawn move loses the g pawn) Nd5+
47. Kxb5 Nf6 and black ends up with a very winnable ending.
B) 44. Ka6 Rb4
45. Qa2 (else Ra4#) Rg4
B1) 46. Qa1 (Qa5/Qa3: Rxg6+, h5 or Kb4: Nxa2) Be5
47. h5 Rh4 and the pawns are gone.
B2) 46. Qc2 b4
and while white has a variety of moves I don't see a way to prevent the rook from either grabbing the pawns or getting a mate on either the 6th rank or a file.
And of course there's absolutely no way I'd be able to work this out over the board in the amount of time Bareev had.
|Jul-13-10|| ||chrisowen: Magnus milks it but shows his teeth in the endgame. Looks like bishop hunt backpedaling recycles the pair. Tandem knights white clips for dessert a treacle ment sac ring posting three pieces take the queen. Meat and veg you'd see to it nosediving yet Carl in going round the houses mark escort of the pawns then crumbles a listless 43.Qf8+. King is boxed in brothers re row 6 4 wont make it.|
|Jul-13-10|| ||zanshin: Now I get it - the pun works if it's pronounced Buh-REEVE (but I think it is Buh-RAY-eff). Also, there's a type on the first 'Like' - but congrats to <The Famous Chess Cat>.|
|Jul-14-10|| ||zanshin: <there's a type on the first 'Like'>|
Make that 'typo'.
|Nov-06-18|| ||Saniyat24: that Famous Chess Pun...! but the game was excellent too..famous Magnus hunt down by the brave-man...!|
