|Apr-17-06|| ||Gantastic: Recapture by either pawn leads to mate. Very pretty!|
|Apr-17-06|| ||WannaBe: Either pawn takes queen, then mate. I must say, I don't get the pun...|
|Apr-17-06|| ||makaveli52: thats rough|
|Apr-17-06|| ||Jarlaxle: yes very nice game... would make a good low level puzzle. 15 ?|
<WannaBe> im not sure on the pun either
|Apr-17-06|| ||Confuse: perhaps mundell is monday, and goodbye blue monday since monday will be over soon. if not then yes i am clueless as well xD|
nice game, maybe this should have been a puzzle! :D
|Apr-17-06|| ||khense: QXe5+! A quick & merciful finish.|
|Apr-17-06|| ||jperr75108: Yeap maybe a tuesday puzzle? Nice game, kingside weakness lead to loss for black.|
|Apr-17-06|| ||ajile: Wow! Great finish.|
|Apr-17-06|| ||zev22407: A song by the - stones- "goodbye ruby tuesday"|
|Apr-17-06|| ||Devilz: Wow, capturing with either pawns results in mate for black, amazing.|
|Apr-17-06|| ||mr j: A very stylish kill !
I think black deserved to be punished after opening his king side pawns so frivolously! (ha-ha, coming from me :)
|Apr-17-06|| ||Sneaky: Aren't there any Kurt Vonnegut fans here?|
|Apr-17-06|| ||offramp: I wonder if there is a problem term for this type of finish?|
<Acirce> would know.
|Apr-17-06|| ||itz2000: Nice finish!
But guys, I got a chance of asking something here..
I don't get the point of 4..Bg4
I mean, unless u want to exchange what's the point of it! it is a lose of (half?) tempo and I still see it in most of the games.
Yes I know, Knight is paralized, but if
move as white : h3,
he will bring the Bishop back or go to Bh5, which might be followed by g4 that will force Bishop go back, 2 loses of half tempos?, yeah, white's castle is a bit not defended, but he can still castle in the other side! so what is the point of these?
Thanks for those who will answer me...
|Apr-17-06|| ||dakgootje: Nice finish!
about the pun, its about "Breakfast of Champions, Or Goodbye, Blue Monday" isnt it, somebody knows?
|Apr-17-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: <Sneaky> I read "Slaughter-house 5" and was very impressed!|
|Apr-17-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: Very nice game! Do you guys think that White already saw 15.Qxe5+ when he played 12.Bd3?|
|Apr-17-06|| ||cuendillar: You're probably right about that. I think he would have tried 12.Qh5 otherwise, which is the most obvious attacking move. He might of course have missed the knight retreat, but that's less probable.|
|Apr-17-06|| ||Ezzy: Sorry everybody but I am going to have a bit of a moan. :-)|
The games in the last 2 days were a credit to be worthy of the title 'game of the day.' Then we get this!
A casual game between 2 unknown players, one of the players has 1 game in the database and the other player has 2 games in the database AND the other game was played against NN. How can there be any credibility in this game?
Ok, the finishing position was pretty cool, but there must be thousands of interesting games that could entertain us.
Who are these players?
You might as well just throw one of my own amateur games in for 'game of the day!'
|Apr-17-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: Come on, <Ezzy>, be a little more optimistic. Of course, this game isn't as professional as some others, but it's still instructive for kibitzers who are more at the novice level as it has quite a neat combination in the end!|
Actually, for novice players it might make even more sense to watch through these more simple games before they move on to more complex ones, which they would hardly understand..
|Apr-17-06|| ||thundershock2k: wow, i would have never thunk of that!
hats off to that fellow
|Apr-17-06|| ||itz2000: can anyone take a look at my comment and reply? <THANKS!>|
|Apr-17-06|| ||Microbe: Would anyone attack me if I were to call this game "cute"?|
The reason for 4. Bg4 itz2000, is similar to the reason it is used in the Ruy Lopez...and h3 is similar to Morphy's defense (The reason I don't use the Ruy Lopez). Am I right? Or am I just being amateurish guys?
|Apr-17-06|| ||peabody88: <itz2000> I think that the main idea of ♗g4 is to try to wrestle the initiative away from white. now white has to take care of his ♘ before going on with his development. I think that in this game black lost the oportunity of using that pin when he refused to exchange. After the refusal his ♗ didn't do anything at all and only deprived his ♔ from a flight sqare.|
|Apr-17-06|| ||Ezzy: <itz2000:> Your assessment of 4..Bg4 is pretty good. You have outlined the advantages and disadvantages of the move. There are other reasonable moves in the position, namely 4..Nf6 4..exd4 4..Bd7 4..Nge7 so basically none of these moves are bad, it is just a matter of preference of what type of positions you prefer to play, and what plans arise from these positions. But with your thinking process about 4..Bg4 I would say you are good chessplayer. You are asking very logical questions about the nature of the moves. But it is a matter of style in that position. Just like some players never choose a Sicilian defence, while other players only play a Sicilian defence. It's your own personal choice. There are pro's and cons to a lot of moves in chess. This is what makes chess the worlds greatest game. Decision making, it can win lose or draw you a game.|
