May-29-06  Dr. Funkenstein: Wow, who says computers donīt know how to sacrifice. Diep sacrifices almost every possible piece in exchange for unbeatable pressure on the queenside and then wins after White plays 29. Qxd6? Even with the blunder, Iīm still impressed that computers can sacrifice for position so strongly.
May-29-06  Veryrusty: <Dr. Funkenstein: 29. Qxd6? Even with the blunder ...> Why is this a blunder? Black is threatening Qxa3 with mate immediately to follow. The point of Qxd6 is that it (a) threatens the Rook, and (b) stops Qxa3 because of the bank-rank cheapo. In other words, I think White was alredy lost -- heckuva a long combinatorics sequence for Diep!
May-29-06  Dr. Funkenstein: You're probably right that white is already lost, I just thought that since the back rank threat already stopped Qxa3, a move like Bf3 with the hope of playing the rook to h2 would have been better. Looking at it again, I dont think anything stops Nxa3, opening the a file, then Nc4 flushing the king out into the open for the kill.
Jun-05-06  Whitehat1963: In like a lion, out like a lamb.
Mar-19-07  sambo: Much more exciting than the typical computer game to my untrained eye.
Mar-19-07  Bob726: 24.Nc7 wins! such as Karjakin vs Anand, 2006
