|Jan-07-07|| ||Amarande: White has had it. Resignation is not premature - e.g. -|
14 Nac3 (trying to neutralize the deadly Bishop) Qh4 15 Bf4 (forced) Qh3 16 Nxe4 (else Ne1+ or Nh4+ followed by Qg2#) Nh4 17 Rg1 Qf3+ and mate at g2;
14 Nec3 (with the same intent) Qh4 15 Bf4 Nxh2+ 16 f3 (if Nxe4 Nf3+ and Qh2 mate) Nxf3+! (stronger than taking the Rook) 17 Kg2 Ne1+! (the double check is necessary, on other Knight discoveries White can survive with Nxe4!) 18 Kg1 g3 and White will have to give up his Queen to prevent mate.
14 Nf4 (in order to protect g2, the target in the previous lines) Qh4 and the mate at h2 is preventable only by giving up the Queen.
Pretty sure that mate or the loss of White's Queen is forced.
|Jan-07-07|| ||Egghead: Again, I understand, but it's Black who resigned, not White. Why?|
|Jan-07-07|| ||Phony Benoni: <Egghead> Where are you getting the idea that Black resigned? "0-1" means a win for Black.|
|Jan-08-07|| ||syracrophy: <<Phony Benoni: <Egghead> Where are you getting the idea that Black resigned? "0-1" means a win for Black.>> LOL. Now I see where was your confusion :-)|
|Mar-09-07|| ||Confuse: Im a little lost. Isnt 13. ..Qh4 stronger? This bishop move seems more like torture!|
|Mar-21-07|| ||Amarande: Junior actually does prefer 13 ... Qh4, though both have such severe evaluations in favor of Black (the move played still gives a -7.58, so the fact that Qh4 gives -11.06 is somewhat moot seeing as White's ox is gored regardless) that it doesn't really matter much.|
Besides, the followup to 13 ... Qh4 is 14 ... Be4 anyway; the main line runs as follows -
13 ... Qh4 14 Bf4
(Anything else allows mate on the move)
14 ... Be4 15 Bg3
(The threat was 15 ... Qh3 followed by ... Ne1+ and mate at g2)
15 ... Ng5+!
(Black can actually still win here with Qh3, but White manages to limp into the endgame making things more drawn out. The line after 15 ... Qh3 is 16 Nf4 (this is why White played Bg3) Nxh2+ and now -
a. 17 f3 Qxg3 18 fxe4 Nf3 and White must play 19 Rxf3, leaving him a Rook and two pawns down;
b. 17 Kg1 Qxf1+ 18 Qxf1 Nxf1 19 Rxf1 cxd4 and with the Exchange and three pawns to the bad, there is nothing left for White to play for
But the text is even stronger.)
(16 Kg1 Nh3 is mate)
16 ... gxf3!
(Not Nxf3, nor Bxf3+, nor Qh3, in any of these cases White even wins. Black must offer the Queen this way, and in doing so wins the game.)
(Not much better is 17 Rxf3 Qg4 18 Ng1 Nxf3 19 Nc3 Nxd4+ 20 Nxe4 Qxe4+ 21 Nf3 Nxf3 and White is gone. If 17 Bxh4 fxe2+ 18 Rf3 Bxf3+ 19 Kg1 Nh3# is a pretty pure mate.)
17 ... f2+ 18 Nf3 Nxf3
(The threat is simply to move the Knight with discovered check and mate next move)
(There is no solace in 19 Rxf2)
19 ... Nxh2+ 20 Kxf2 Ng4+ 21 Ke2 Qxg3
and so on; the mate at e3 is easily prevented, and White can hold onto the Queen as well, but with two pieces and two pawns minus there simply isn't any hope. The game could continue 22 Qd2 Be7 23 Kd1 (or 23 Rf4 Bg5) Ne3+ and another Rook is lost, to begin with.
|May-16-07|| ||kevin86: White faced an opponent who wanted to play aggressive-he adds fuel to the fire with a reckless gambit.|
The result is a quick KO.
|May-16-07|| ||thathwamasi: why on earth will white gambit the g-pawn and then castle on king side????|
|May-16-07|| ||syracrophy: <<thathwamasi: why on earth will white gambit the g-pawn and then castle on king side????>>|
Because that's "What the Doctor Ordered"
|May-16-07|| ||alshatranji: Nice game. But come on. Castling on the king's side in this position? It is suicide.|
|May-16-07|| ||Manic: The game seems to be already over before 12.0-0??, which ends White's miseries much faster. After 11...Nh4! White's position looks horrible.|
|May-16-07|| ||jmrulez2004: this is what i call castling into destruction! castling should be done at right timing, many people are addicted to castling, even when doing so sometimes make them suffer positionally......for instance, if you have a nice pawn structure and queens are exchanged, it is not a must to castle. because when queens are out of play, mating danger is less. a fine example of appropriate timing of castling can be seen from this beautiful game- Kasparov vs Ivanchuk, 1995|
|May-16-07|| ||thegreatzidane: I got the pun. Nice one =)|
|May-16-07|| ||johnwgoes: Does this have anything to do with Dr. Ron Paul?|
|May-16-07|| ||prinsallan: Is it only me who thinks that White plays miserable?|

|May-16-07|| ||JG27Pyth: a3? Nh4? 0-0? Can anyone explain the logic behind those moves?|
I can't really see putting this up as a game of the day... Correct me if I'm wrong but white's play here is pretty weak. I get the feeling he hadn't played this opening before. Anyone know offhand where this leaves book?
|May-16-07|| ||Jack Kerouac: Now that's what I call Dutch Treat!|
|May-16-07|| ||Chessmensch: What kind of a match-up is this? Callinan has this one game in the data base. Saidy has a rating over 2500 with a number of high placings in competition. So, why is this GOTD?|
|May-16-07|| ||GrandPatzerSCL: Mother called the Doctor and the Doctor said.. "No more Michaels jumping on the "Stonewall!!"|
|May-16-07|| ||Resignation Trap: This was a round one game from the 1968 US Open, and a typical monologue.|
|May-16-07|| ||iamverywellatchess: White did not have to resine! There were many ways in which she could regain her oner! If you ask me I will tell you! Thank you for your time you are very well to me!|
|May-16-07|| ||gBizzle: why is this the game of the day? black only won because of white. who castles kingside with a missing g pawn?|
|May-17-07|| ||malthrope: <gBizzle: why is this the game of the day? black only won because of white. who castles kingside with a missing g pawn?>|
Because, Dr. Anthony (Tony) Saidy was born on this day May 16, 1937 in Los Angeles, CA [See - Dr. Anthony Saidy - and he was also honored for 'The Player of the Day' yesterday on May 16th]
Tony in his heyday was a regular participant in the US Chess Championships. Plus, he's a beloved "International Master" here in the states and one hell of a nice guy. I last saw Tony at the Spassky chess simultaneous chess exhibition and lectures at the 'Mechanics' Institute Chess Club' in San Francisco last year in late September. Besides all that - this game is a cute chess minature!
In fact it's just 'What the Doctor Ordered!' ~lol~ ;-) Regards, - Mal
|Dec-10-09|| ||Domdaniel: <black only won because of white> - inevitable, really.|
Actually, these g4 gambits vs the Dutch can be tricky - but white has to keep the initiative to expose black's weaknesses. Here black got the initiative and white got the weaknesses.
