May-11-06  TheUnkraut: 18.Qd8+!!, followed by N:e6+ and Bg5+. Very nice. Easy to find when you know "there is something" -but a real drama when you analyze your last blitzgame and realizes, that you probably have missed such a nice possibility.
May-12-06  TheUnkraut: (ChessPraxis) i forget to give you a big "lol". - Yes, this was what i thougt first, too!;-)
May-12-06  LIFE Master AJ: Did anyone (from this site) look at my web page on this game yet?

I was just wondering ...

May-12-06  Fischeristhebest: Nope.
May-12-06  technical draw: Bonch-Osmolovsky? Wasn't he the wrestler that almost killed Bugs Bunny?
May-15-06  zb2cr: If I'm remembering correctly, Alexander Kotov, in his book <Think Like a Grandmaster>, told an anecdote about Bonch-Osmolovsky. Bonch-Osmolovsky had such a horrible blunder that he yelled at himself! I think Kotov also mentioned he was an amateur boxer.
May-15-06  percyblakeney: <zb2cr> The blunder game:

Bronstein vs M Bonch-Osmolovsky, 1946

Jun-05-06  Whitehat1963: What marvelous, crystal-clear vision on display by white!! Gorgeous finish!! 18. Qd8+!! is indeed worthy of two exclamations!!
Jun-06-06  technical draw: I see all our recent comments were deleted. In a sense I am glad since I said things that later I was to regret. I believe in spirited debate but it seems that with some that debate is impossible since at the slightest flesh wound they yell, medic!

Jun-06-06  technical draw: <chancho> Nada, sigo esperando. Esto parece que va para largo. Quizas un dia reciba la llamada de oro!

  chancho: <AJ> I was asking <technical draw> back then about his lawsuit against his employer. (US goverment) I hope you did not think it was directed at you.
Jul-01-07  LIFE Master AJ: <chancho>
No problem.

Actually, I just got a new program. (Given to me by a friend.) It (supposedly) teaches Spanish, (I'm useless at it!); and also has a basic translation engine as well. I got to tinkering with it, and comparing it to some others.

I have a few friends who speaks Spanish. My Father-in-Law also is fluent in both French AND Spanish! (He was born in France, but grew up - as a child - in Mexico and also completed most of his schooling there as well.)

Its really weird to compare a human's translation to a machines. (Sometimes they get the basic words right, but lose the meaning of many "flavors of the words" ... idioms? ... I am not sure of the correct way to say this.)

Anyway, its much like the programs that play chess. Ten years ago, they were useless at the higher level tactics.

---> I wonder how long it will be before some program can instantly translate most commonly known languages? (Care to make a prediction?)

  chancho: <AJ> The way technology is advancing in these times, a program of that type might be available in the not too distant future. Not much of a prediction I know.
Jul-03-07  LIFE Master AJ: I agree that technology moves very quickly.

I told many people that it seemed inevitable that computers would - one day - play chess better than a human. However, I NEVER thought it would happen in my lifetime!!!

Look what progress the computers (technology PLUS software) have made. In 1997, most programs were basically toys. They might aid the average player in anlysis, but there were not too many programs that could scare a GM. Today, not even Kramnik can defeat Deep Fritz.

Dec-20-10  jmboutiere: 10...Nc6 much better than 10...Qb4
Dec-20-10  jmboutiere: 13...Be7 better than 13...Rc8
Dec-20-10  jmboutiere: 16...f6 better than 16...Nb4
Dec-20-10  jmboutiere: 17...f6 better than 17...Rc3 and mate in 6

  sachistu: A more precise venue for this game is the URS-ch qf Grp1 Moscow 1953. There were 2 groups in the quarter-finals at Moscow and Leningrad that year. The game is annotated by Bonch-Osmolovsky in SvSSSR 1954, Issue 4, p114. I've submitted a correction slip.

Regarding the suggestion made here of 10...Nc6 (instead of ...Qb4), Bonch-Osmolovsky says "in case 10..Nc6 11.Qf4 Qe6 12.Qc7 the position resembles what happened in the game". However, that seems hard to reconcile given the position of the BQ and BQB compared to the actual game.

Bonch-Osmolovsky says "on 10...Bc2 simplest is 11.Rc1 followed by 12.Nd5". However, I'm wondering if he presumed the Bishop would move when Nd5 is indeed killing. Instead, 11...Nc6! would seem to cast a different light on things. The more direct and immediate 11.Nd5! looks like a better answer.
