|Oct-12-08|| ||Richard Taylor: Great attack - do you listen to music when you play your games over!!|
I must try the advance v the Caro
|Feb-25-09|| ||WhiteRook48: great annotation! :D|
|Oct-24-09|| ||SamAtoms1980: Nice game tpstar, I had no idea how long you've been doing this :)|
Did you submit this game yourself?
|Oct-24-09|| ||Benzol: Nice game by you Tony. A real starry present.
|Oct-24-09|| ||tpstar: Golly, these puns are getting better all the time. ;>D|
This Advance Line against the Caro-Kann (e5/g4/h4/h5/f4) is a great way to overwhelm an unsuspecting opponent, albeit with some risk. I played it in the halcyon days of my youth (?!), but now I prefer the Panov-Botvinnik Attack as sharper. Note 21. Qf2 threatens 22. Nc6+ winning the Queen, and then if 28 ... exd5 29. Bxd5+! works as the Qc5 is pinned against the mate threat on a7. The finish is one of the few Double Checks in my career.
<SamAtoms1980> I've been doing this before you were born. =)
This was when I played First Board for the University of Michigan.
|Oct-24-09|| ||SugarDom: It's an exciting game and the pun is clever...
but i try to use only grandmaster's name...
If that wasn't the case, i can submit another 1000 puns just based on names...
Congrats, Tpstar anyways...
|Oct-24-09|| ||returnoftheking: Nice attack. You must have been very young, or confident or contempteous of the opponent, with all those pawn moves..:p|
Btw, in addition to your analysis my computer comes up with the possible pawn sac 23..f6 and maybe ok. for black.
|Oct-24-09|| ||pulsar: Nice attack, <tpstar>. Congrats for the GOTD feature. :)|
|Oct-24-09|| ||Richard Taylor: Good game, great plan of attack an a nice finish. I lost to Caro today (partly as I didn't really have good plan - planning etc is my big weakness apart from stupidity and old age!) and I came on to see some new way to play against it...and here is an example on the front page - which I had already played over...|
The Panov-Bot perhaps...?
|Oct-24-09|| ||SamAtoms1980: <tpstar: <SamAtoms1980> I've been doing this before you were born. =)>|
By "this" I meant those posts with interwoven song lyrics and game moves
I first saw it on the Carlsen page and got the impression that it was something you started only recently, but it looks like I was wrong
|Oct-24-09|| ||Bradah: It's should have been called Randy's Present. LOL.|
|Oct-24-09|| ||DarthStapler: What happens if black doesn't take the pawn on b6?|
|Oct-24-09|| ||Mr. President: Thanks for keeping my <ID> privately.|

something like 23...g5 might have kept black in the game:

|Oct-24-09|| ||keypusher: Nice!|
|Oct-24-09|| ||MrMelad: Congratz <tpstar> for a wonderful game of the day and for being such a great poster :)|
|Oct-24-09|| ||playground player: <tpstar> Wow! I like that! Sort of a Pickett's Charge that really worked. Very bold, advancing all those pawns and not castling the King. But sometimes the best defense is a good offense.|
|Oct-24-09|| ||WhiteRook48: not a nice present|
|Oct-24-09|| ||obientag: <tpstar> well played sir. I like it.|
|Oct-24-09|| ||ComboKal: An all-out pawn blitz! I love it! Dangerous having your king exposed, but your opponent can't get anything going. He tried with 23. ...Nc4, but 24.b6 and 25.Nc5 were the winning moves.|
|Oct-24-09|| ||Wayne Proudlove: Interesting.|
