as for chess well very interesting : )
|Jan-21-06|| ||Ludamad: Awesome game, thats why I play my games out, especially if i have a 6th rank passed pawn|
|Jan-21-06|| ||Devilz: The power of the passed pawns!|
|Jan-21-06|| ||dakgootje: Brilliant game
Maybe something for Game Collection: Passed Pawns
|Jan-21-06|| ||itz2000: great game
but why (38)<? Rc8 was the last chance for a draw - Black is now lost> ?? I don't get what's the diffrence between Rc8 and Rd8
Can someone explains it please?
|Jan-21-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: Strange, <itz2000>, I don't see any difference either.|
|Jan-21-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: A very fine pick for this GOTD, White played courageously!|
|Jan-21-06|| ||Bobwhoosta: <itz2000> The note to move 40 clarifies with "If the rook was on c8 the bishop could move to b3 through d1 with the rook giving protected checks". However, after (with rook on c8) 40...Bd1 41. f8=Q Rxf8 42. Kxf8 Bb3, white pushes the g-pawn and it looks like the same king and pawn as before after black sacs the bishop for the second pawn.|
|Jan-21-06|| ||ReikiMaster: <Bobwhoosta> after 40...Bd1 41.f8=Q there are no checks whether black Rook is on d8 or c8. In either case it is pinned between Kb8 and Qf8.|
|Jan-21-06|| ||twinlark: <Bobwhoosta> and <itz2000>,<Emperor Atahualpa> and <ReikiMaster>|
In <Bobwhoosta>'s line, Black would play 42. Bxa4 before returning to Bb3 with a draw.
If the Rook was on c8, then 40.f7 Rc7 first (and not Bd1) 41.Kf8 Rc8+ 42.Ke7 Rc7+ draws. This protected check would not be possible with the Rook on d8.
If 41. Kg8 (41.g6 Bd1 followed by Bb3) then Be6 42.g6 Bb3 43. (43.g7?? Rc8+ wins) draws. In this line if 41.g6 then 41...Bd1 draws after eventually moving to Bb3.
|Jan-21-06|| ||twinlark: It's a fascinatng ending. There's always just one tempo in it, and that seemingly removed pawn on a4 is pivotal.|
|Jan-21-06|| ||stuck: <twinlark> <If the Rook was on c8, then 40.f7 Rc7>|
I am a little confused by the variations. f7 occurred on move 39, not move 40. If the rook was on c8, then after 39. f7 we have

If we then continue your line (- 1 in the move notation )
39. f7 c7 40. g6 d1 then white plays 41. h6 and black has no time for 41. ... b3 because of the promotion threat 42. f8 +
If 41. ... c8 to stop the promotion, then 42. g7 and the f pawn will queen protected
|Jan-21-06|| ||kevin86: White sacs both bishops and later,the exchange for three passed pawns!! A poor deal-think again!!|
Eventually the pawns will eat up the pieces back and leave white with an elementary pawn win!
White had to dodge some bullets,but he came out with the best ending.
|Jan-21-06|| ||kevin86: An alternate pun,especially if black wins the rematch:Hroma therapy|
---or does it stink?
|Jan-21-06|| ||mr. nice guy: It doesn't stink it's just a little po-korny.|
|Jan-21-06|| ||twinlark: <stuck> My mistake. Taken from your diagrammed position, Black plays 39...a5 followed by either 40. Rxf8 or 40.Bd1 depending on White's response.|
|Feb-10-06|| ||MorphyMatt: This looks a lot like Polugaevsky vs E Torre, 1981|
