|Mar-03-06|| ||blingice: Beautiful game. I have the impression early on in the game that white is dominating, because his king is fully involved in a serious center battle, while the black king is behind. Then, later, the white king seems be be getting drawn into a mate. THEN, it switches again.|
|Mar-03-06|| ||Cogano: Hello <blingice> & I sincerely hope this finds you well. I couldn't agree more. This is one of the best examples I've seen that demonstrates Steinitz's philosophy that "the King is a fighting
piece." & boy does he fight here or what. Plaskett, & through him his King,
would've made Napoleon & Alexander the Great proud! ;) LOL Anyway. Take very good care & have a great day & a great weekend too. Cheers mate! :)|
|Mar-03-06|| ||al wazir: 39...Ng7+ 40. Rxg7 Kxg7 41. Bxe6 Rxe6. Or 39...R6e7 40. Kg6 Be4. Where's the win?|
|Mar-03-06|| ||dbquintillion: "Plaskett weaver" is REALLY scraping the bottom of the barrel.|
|Mar-03-06|| ||durnstein: <al wazir> In your first line,
42. Rd7+, K moves,
and Black will lose a couple of pawns, and the game I think.
|Mar-03-06|| ||Runemaster: "Plaskett Case"?|
|Mar-03-06|| ||backyard pawn: <al wazir> hmmm....|
|Mar-03-06|| ||mack: <Runemaster> I'm one step ahead of you there son - see Game Collection: Chessgames.com members in action|
|Mar-03-06|| ||The17thPawn: <Al wazir> I'm with you on this one. Where's the immediate win? I don't find durnsteins rd7+ convincing as the bisop gaurds b7. Admittedly, blacks a pawn down and in trouble but I think the towel was thrown in a bit early here.|
|Mar-03-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: Impressive king walk! I love Plaskett's original playing style, and it's great to know he has joined chessgames.com!|
|Mar-03-06|| ||kevin86: Leading with the king? Isn't that like leading with your chin? The opening is so odd that it makes the Spike Opening or Polish Opening seem Gregorian Chant in nature.|
The least that can be said is that it was a fun game. :)
|Mar-03-06|| ||Warrush: on move 31, B-f5 results in a draw, does it not?|
|Mar-03-06|| ||Joshua01: To continue al wazir's analysis:
(1) 9...Ng7+ 40. Rxg7 Kxg7 41. Bxe6 Rxe6
I would continue with 42. Rd7+ and pick up the h6 pawn.
Strong King + 2 passers + a pretty good grip on the 7th = eventual win.
(2)39...R6e7, instead of 40 Kg6, I would go with
40. Rxe7 Rxe7 (Nxe7 hangs h6, and Kxe7 loses via Rd7+, Rf7+ and Rxf5)
41. Rd8+ Re8 (if Kg7, 42. Rg8+ and 43. Nf6 mate), 42. Rxe8 Kxe8, 43. Nxf6 and again,
2 passers and a very active position. Won, I would think.
I don't have a board in front of me, so there are probably errors in these lines, but that's my 2 cents worth.

200th Kibitz yay!
