|Dec-10-05|| ||TruthHurts: 25.f5! was a great inspired moove, specially knowing that for severall mooves players where only mooving at the queen side. The tempo of this moove is superb, he played it just at the right moment, which is even better than just thinking about it. Superb chess by Bacrot. This game should be tought, looking at how he attacked without queens on the board and looking at his bishop technic. In other words how to convert a small advantage into a win...|
|Dec-10-05|| ||aw1988: <TruthHurts> Can I make a few small suggestions?|
Mooves should be moves,
Severall should be several,
Tought should be taught,
Technic should be technique
English is a complicated language, I know, just a few corrections, if you don't mind.
What is the object of f5?
|Dec-10-05|| ||TruthHurts: < aw1988 > thanks ;), when I write too fast and don't check I make sever"al" mistakes :).|
<English is a complicated language, I know>
You meant English's spelling is complicated ;)? I would say , at least easier than french's...
|Dec-10-05|| ||PARACONT1: <TruthHurts> I would be thrilled if I could spell French the way you did with English, mistakes and all! I think it's amazing that someone is willing to try his hand at spelling a foreign language. I also think it's despicable than he should be criticized for the errors he makes by others who can't even spell in a foreign language. Keep up the good work!|
|Dec-10-05|| ||TruthHurts: <Paracont> ;).
<aw1955>, What is the object of f5?
f5 is done to break king's side pawn structure and at the same time to introduce white squares bishop into an attacking plan. Of course it also obviously opens dark squares bishop's diagonal. This move has therefore a triple function. If Beliavsky takes what I described will happen and happened actually. In case of not trading the pawns, f5 helps e5 to eventually advance to e6, it is just a simple advancing pawn strategy to queen eventually. And still opens dark squares bishop's diagonal.
|Dec-10-05|| ||ionnn: Beliavsky or Rublevsky? I don't think Beliavsky has played a single move during that game. But maybe there is a sky connection.|
|Dec-10-05|| ||TruthHurts: Sorry Rublevsky of course.
<I don't think Beliavsky has played a single move during that game.>
You think well.
|Dec-10-05|| ||Assassinater: <What is the object of f5?>|
The same object that you will see in some endgames where white/black 'sacrifices' the h/g/f pawn in order to break up the opponent's pawn structure on that wing. In any case, it was hardly a sacrifice, as black has no good way to hold onto the pawn.
I agree that this was a highly instructive game, though after trading queens, white's bishops are better placed and more aggressive. Notice the pawn on e5, how it locks in the pawn on e6 and consequently limits the scope of the black light-squared bishop. It also has the side-effect of preventing easy transfer of the black dark-squared bishop to the fatally weak dark squares on the kingside.
|Dec-10-05|| ||suenteus po 147: <aw1988> & <TruthHurts> English is a very easy language to "get by" in, but a very difficult language to master. Even as an English instructor I don't often write my English well in my kibitzes. I'm very fortunate that the more erudite kibitzers don't take me to task for my posts :)|
|Dec-10-05|| ||aw1988: <suenteus po 147> It ain't my problem, home boy, what you doin' in da crib on da funny little games u play with 64 funky squares. Peace.|
|Dec-12-05|| ||JohnBoy: Boys, boys, boys... I speak five languages (six if you count "dude"), and appreciate it when native speakers correct my mistakes. That's how I learn.|
<Truth>'s "thanks" is the right response.
