Aug-12-08  Dionyseus: <classF> Yes at that time I was one of the major supporters for 19.Bb6. In retrospect 19.Bg5 might have been a win for us as well, and perhaps was the stronger move.
Aug-28-08  RookFile: Well, you're only throwing red meat in front of me. You can go back to the game, and look at page after page where I pleaded for Bg5 at those times.

In fact, as part of the 'objective' analysis that went on, in one case, I analyzed Bg5 followed by Qd2, and observed that it was promising. Certain individuals, in writing up a summary, gave some bogus analysis, in dismissing this. Now - here's the interesting thing. These guys advocated Qd2, and in one subline, Bg5. In other words, this lead to the <exact same position> that I was analyzing - but this time, they had all kinds of analysis to say that White was better.

So, I went to bed one night, with Bg5 safely in the lead, and woke up the next morning to read this nonsense, but the voting had been done over night, and there was no changing it.

It all turned out happily ever after anyway, of course.

Sep-19-08  A. Anderssen: Can anyone analyse the game?

  whiteshark: <A. Anderssen> I kind of like this, it's 'let sb. else do the work'.
Sep-20-08  Aspirador: <Can anyone analyse the game?> LOL, I guess this is an intentional joke.

Did you notice that we are on page 1066 of the thread?

  Ragh: If not intended in jest, then what <A. Anderssen> probably means is that he wants a condensed version of entire 1066 pages into a "single post" analysis of the game or something like that.
Oct-03-08  Super Chess Man: Hey, but right now there is another Arno Nickel we are playing ! Do you think they are the same person, maybe ?
Oct-08-08  A. Anderssen: Super Chess Man: Hey, but right now there is another Arno Nickel we are playing ! Do you think they are the same person, maybe ?

Yes, he is the same person.

Nov-20-08  Nietzowitsch: <A. Anderssen> After this crushing defeat Arno Nickel wasn't the same as before, just a mere shadow of his former self. So how can you say <he is the same person>? This is very frivolous of you!
Jan-05-09  WhiteRook48: passed pawn!! wow!!
Jan-24-09  WhiteRook48: let's analyze this game
1. e4!! c5!! those are good so I'll get carried away and give two exclams
Jan-25-09  WhiteRook48: 2. Nf3?! e6?! Ok, these annotations were made by a patzer
Feb-01-09  WhiteRook48: 3 d4 cxd4 4 Nxd4 are okay
Feb-07-09  WhiteRook48: amazing posting on page 986
Feb-14-09  WhiteRook48: I think 40...Re1 is dubious. I would have preferred 40...Re7, but then 41. a7 is decisive anyway
Feb-15-09  WhiteRook48: 4...a6.
Hmmm. This looks odd, but that's probably because I don't have a good sense of openings
Feb-21-09  WhiteRook48: <A. Anderssen> hilarious
May-05-09  hidude: The World :)

  Domdaniel: <WhiteRook48> This was a regular Sicilian Kan line up to move 8 or 9, then a known but slightly offbeat variation to about move 14. The next couple of moves had been seen in published analysis by Lutz (of which both sides were aware) -- but never tried in a significant game. After that we were on our own.

If you don't have a good sense of openings to the extent that an early ...a6 in the Sicilian surprises you, I suggest you either (a) avoid the Sicilian, or (b) play through more games in this line.

Oct-22-10  Titicamara: Real good game

  Penguincw: How can that rook still be dancing? It's been dancing for nearly 5 years.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: I believe it's over 5 years now!

  Check It Out: 36.b4 is such a great move. I bet that shook up Arno Nickel quite a bit when he turned on the computer to get the latest move.

  twinlark: Time for this year's comment! I'm still admiring <18. Qd2>.
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: <lark> yeah, how in The World did we get it voted in?
