  Benzol: Our own <Richard Taylor> in action and a candidate for <mack>'s collection.
Jul-10-06  tonsillolith: According to the database, this is the same Taylor that plays in both 2003 and 1862. Good game, anyway.

  WannaBe: Very interesting position after 25...Be6. I can't say I've ever seen all the bishops line up on the (crowded) e-file.

Black's 28 and 29th move are some what dubious... Haven't really examined them closely, it just looked funny.

34...Qh4, would it be better to exchange the queens for black? Example: 34...Bxc3 35. Bxe5 Bxb2 etc...

  Richard Taylor: I don't think Paul Garbett was in form in this game - or maybe in that tournament I won the first three games in a row then lost to a tactic against another very strong player (but I had quite a good position previous to that) and then lost aginst a Kings Gambit (I played the Falkbeer counter gambit which I still think is good) - not because of the opening but just overconfidence. At the time this was played I had been going through Karpov's "Complete Games" (Levy O)'Connell etc) and that helped me a lot to get a feel for positions.

  Richard Taylor: Better than 26 ...b3? was 26. ... a5

Maybe 26. ... a5 27. b3 ab 28. ab f5!? 29. Bh6 !? Rf7 30. ef5 gf5 31.g4 !!?

Something like that. 26.. b3? was a slip.

  Richard Taylor: The position was about equal until 26 b6 all Paul had to do was to get his Q on c7 and play Bc5.

  Jonathan Sarfati: A good scalp, because Garbett was an ex NZ champ at the time with more victories to come.

  Richard Taylor: <Jonathan Sarfati> Thanks. I was playing well in about that time but personal troubles and so on meant I didn't continue my good form; also I wasn't wary enough and I lost to a certain Spenser-Smith (of North Shore Club) and then Bruce Watson got me with nice combo in another game.

I recall meeting Garbett about the time I was ending the "first phase" of my rather uneventful! chess "career" about 1966 (or was it later?) he was schoolboy and I was little older and I would always beat him and explain why he could have won and so on - I came back to chess in 1978 to find he was one of NZ's best players!

Sorry - I missed this comment when it came on I'll look at it shortly and reply. Meantime, thanks for commenting.

Yes!

<<Black's 28 and 29th move are some what dubious... Haven't really examined them closely, it just looked funny.>>

Yes, probably 28. ..Qb4 was better. Garbett played a bit weakly (perhaps indecisively) for an IM but I played well in this game - of course I am not in his league but on that day I had my moment of glory! -I also had a draw with him in another game.

<<34...Qh4, would it be better to exchange the queens for black? Example: 34...Bxc3 35. Bxe5 Bxb2 etc...>>

It may have been I think White then plays 36. Rxa5 and is threatening f6 but it may have been better for Black than what happened.

  Richard Taylor: Actually I won three games then lost to Bruce Watson and Spencer-Smith a strong North Shore player I haven't seen now for years.

  Richard Taylor: <Richard Taylor: Possible line - my analysis I hardly ever use computers to analyse.>

But I do now - I realise that I miss so much otherwise - thanks to someone on the problem of the day giving me a rev up! I made too many errors - and it only takes one to spoil a good analysis.

The key is to analyse first on one's own or with the opponent or both - then use Fritz or whatever.

  Richard Taylor: I just played through this and I thought:

"Why doesn't he take that?" I meant 19 ... Nxe4 but then I saw 20. Nh6# ! Laugh!

Thanks for your comments - I missed them before.

  Richard Taylor: <WannaBe> Yes after 15. ...Be6 it is almost aesthetic...

and, yes, as you say, instead of 34. ... Qh4; exchanging queens may have been better.

I got this and draw v Garbett but he is an IM and I doubt I will ever get such results again! Mind you I was 34 then. I probably played a little better then - after this I lost the next three games! But I really had quite good positions in them but blew them ... chess is so hard.

After about 1985 I got busy with much else beside chess. I seemed to lack consistency in my chess so I never really made it to the glorious heights.
