|Aug-14-06|| ||rudysanford: Does anyone know why this ends at move 33? I came across this game in Chernev's 'The Russians Play Chess' and it runs out to mate on move 36, just as the notes window shows. Just wondering. This is not the first game in the collection that has a different ending than what is found on this site. I wonder what Chernev's source for the game was, given that the first addition of the book was in 1946. Were Soviet games hard to come by in the West during the Stalinist purges and the war?|
|Aug-15-06|| ||syracrophy: This game is a charming king hunt, that appears in the book "The King Hunt" by John Nunn and William Cozens. Both players are indeed great chess problems composers. Kasparian (born in 1910) was eleven times champion of Armenia and he was the king of the drawing problems. I don't know so much about Chekhover, but he was also known for his problems. But Kasparian was more famous.|
I really enjoyed this game, but it couldn't fit on my collection <King Hunt> as it was full to the 101-game limit =P
|Aug-11-07|| ||sanyas: Black missed several faster mates, the first being with 27...g5.|
|Jun-27-08|| ||arsen387: <sanyas> 27..g5 28.Rxg5+ Bxg5 29.Kxg5 Qxe3+ blacks are clearly winning but seems like mate is no faster|
|Jun-22-09|| ||Benzol: <LPeristy> Game No:22 ?|
|Dec-04-10|| ||SuperPatzer77: After 32...Qxg4+!, 33. Kxe8 Qc8+, 34. Ke7 Qc7+, 35. Kf6 (instead of 35. Ke8) h6! (threatening Nh7#), 36. Qxg6+ (forced) fxg6, 37. Kxg6 Qf7+!, 38. Kxh6 Ne4! (threatening 39...Qh7#), 39. Rg1+ (only move) Kh8 (40. Rg7 Qxg7+, 41. Kh5 Qg5# or 40. Rg8+ Qxg8, 41. Kh5 Qg5#) 0-1|
|Dec-28-10|| ||doubledrooks: It seems to me that 32...Kf8, with the threat of Re7+ and Qc7#, mates faster than 32...Qxg4.|
|Jul-05-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Game score is wrong - about ten different books give this game as lasting 36 moves. (...Ng7#)|
|Apr-26-17|| ||Kashew: sanyas is correct: 27...g5+ is the fastest mate - forced, in four more moves.|
