|Jan-14-06|| ||Icyclemort: <clocked>
I have analyzed that sac a lot in the last few hours (with my brain and the brilliant Rybka).
I agree with you (now) that Carlsens sac is winning.
Though i still favor a different line:
29.Bxf7! Kxf7 30.Qf4 g5 31. Qf5 Qc6 32. Rc1! Qb7 33. ... Rxd6!
(though a small difference)
|Jan-14-06|| ||Robin01: I did not like black's 13...Bsf3. What if black would have played 13...Bh4? Can anyone say if this would have been better or worse?|
|Jan-14-06|| ||Robin01: That should have been "black's 13...Bxf3"|
|Jan-14-06|| ||Robin01: I mean, why give up the light squared bishop so easily!|
|Jan-15-06|| ||Richard Taylor: This is a great game -Carlsen plays deceptively simply or it appears "simple" -he is a cross between a Capablanca and an Alekhine - my gut feeling is he will be World Champion one day (ok I did read Kasparov thing a lot of his play) - he might even win this tournament if he can have a crack at Topalov etc Maybe Black should have played Nd7 instead of hxg5...|
|Jan-15-06|| ||Benzol: <Richard> Are you going to activate your forum?|
|Jan-17-06|| ||WannaBe: Wait a minute! I paid $22, and I was promised 'Girls gone Wild', not 'Magnus gone Wild'! I demand a refund! =)|
|Jan-17-06|| ||al wazir: What was the purpose of 27. Kg2 ? Was white just waiting for black to make a mistake?|
|Jan-17-06|| ||slavyi: I think the purpose of 27.Kg2 was to support the h pawn. Other wise after 27.....hxg4 28Nxg4, white's h pawn would hang thus there would not be an outpost for the knight and black's king rook would penatrate opening the h file|
|Jan-17-06|| ||al wazir: <slavyi: I think the purpose of 27.Kg2 was to support the h pawn.> Of course. After you point it out it's obvious.|
|Jan-17-06|| ||pwrstick: I'm sorry - can someone please explain how the game would end if play continued?|
|Jan-17-06|| ||jahhaj: <pwrstick> Maybe 37...Rxd8 (37...Kh7 38.Re7+ wins queen) 38.Qxd8+ Kf7 (38...Kg7 or Kh7 39.Re7+ wins queen) 39.Qe8+ Kf6 (39...Kg7 40.Re7+ wins queen) 40.Qe6+ wins rook.|
|Jan-17-06|| ||Richard Taylor: <Benzol> Not yet - I dont think Ihave time - but I played over the Chandler - Wade game again and it's reat effort by Wade (and Murrray) - Bob mustbe about 80 he played like Topalov palyed someone like that! |
I am quite impressed with what they have done in giving reports & some pictures and some games from Queenstown -I also downloaded the pgn of two days play -I suppose the top quarter of the field.
|Jan-17-06|| ||Richard Taylor: <pwrstick> If 37. ... Kh7 38. Rd7+ wins|
If 37. ... Rxd8 38. Qxd8+ Kf7 39. Qe8+ Kf6 40. Re6+ Kg7 41. Rxg3+ Kh7 42. Qg8#
Or 40. ... Kf5 41. Qxg6+ Kf4 42. Rf6+ Ke5 43. Rf5+ ( or Qg5+) Kd4 44. Qd6+ Kc4 45. Rc5#
But <jahaj>'s method also looks winning. With the King in the open theh R and Q can just kick the Black King around and devastate the Black soldiers and eventually execute the King.
|Jan-17-06|| ||dakgootje: Last move would make a nice puzzle indeed. Nice game, overal not too hard to follow and very recent too.|
|Jan-17-06|| ||pwrstick: Thank you!|
|Jan-17-06|| ||Chopin: <Youth Gone Wild> The pun is from a famous song by a heavy metal group--Skid Row. They had a number of hit songs, such as "18 and life" and "Youth Gone Wild"-- Great game!|
|Jan-17-06|| ||kevin86: It is crystal clear that after the exchange of rooks at d8-white will win the queen by Re7+. A nice game-being that is only three days old, lol.|
|Jan-17-06|| ||THE pawn: Will it stand the test of time?|
|Jan-17-06|| ||Manu2: A clean execution!! Marvellous particularly I had gone through the analysis by clocked!!|
|Jan-17-06|| ||johnnyboy: what is the finish though?|
|Jan-17-06|| ||backyard pawn: <johnnyboy> Either 37...Rxd8, 38. Qxd8+, Kg7 or Kh7, 39. Re7+ forking black's King and Queen,
or, 37...Kh7, 38. Re7+ again, forking black's King and Queen. So no matter how black responds, as soon as his King is chased to the 7th rank, white forks the king and queen. I would resign under that condition, too.
Beautifully played ending|
|Jan-20-11|| ||4tmac: if 30. ..g5(!) 31.Qf5 Qc6 32.Kh2 looks winning. Hope the rubber game later today is as good as the first two.|
|Aug-30-17|| ||Dave12: A beautiful game, but one thing that caught my attention was the move 25.Nh2. It's amazing to see how such a simple setup move in an innocent position is so crushing and not refutable.|
|Aug-30-17|| ||ChessHigherCat: <4tmac: if 30. ..g5(!) 31.Qf5 Qc6 32.Kh2 looks winning.>|
White can get 3 pawns for the piece with 30...g5?! 31. Qxd6 Qxd6 32. Rxd6 Ke7 33. e5 Bg7 (33..Nxe5?? 34. Rxf6 Rc5 35. Rf5 or 33...Bxe5 34. Rd5 both lose a piece) 34. Rxa6
