  cade: I love these King chase endings. Bischoff should have probably been a little more careful of accepting 2 sacrifices in consecutive moves, he let his position get pulled apart.

  wordfunph: "The one I was proud of for a long time was my win against Klaus Bischoff in 2006. It helped me on the way to my first GM norm. It was a Greek gift bishop sack too!"

- GM Gawain Jones (when asked for his best game ever played)

  An Englishman: Good Evening: The 4...e5 and 5...d5 gambit can pose a lot of challenges to White--the move ...e5-e4 cuts the board in two and keeps pieces away from the defense of the King, plus Black might capture the artificially isolated d-pawn anyway. I always felt it was sound OTB and avoided it with 1.c4,c5; 2.Nc3 or 2.g2-g3.
Apr-21-13  vsiva1: what about 24. Be2... would be saving white?. becaz, black's white bishop is a real threat. Also,Knight d2 is supportive.

After 25.Nxe4 white is OK

Apr-21-13  TheTamale: In the attempt to create something topical was forged a truly weak pun.
Apr-21-13  pericles of athens: 31. Rd8+!

I get it depends how close to the wind you like to sail, but after <30...Bxf3> I don't think I'd want to be white.

Maybe the computers say otherwise, but they tend to have better nerves than humans.

The idea is that the black R cannot leave the 8 rank due to back rank mate threats (Qe8 and Rd8), white's K has shifted to a safe haven and black has to simplify to drawing endgame

After 30...Bxf3 31.e4 Rxd6+ 32.Kc4 Be2+ 33.Kc5, black has to give the R by playing either 33...Qc3+ or 33...Kf8 then 34.Kxd6.

More and more humans rely on computers, including engine analysis of chess, with the exception that chess has something imaginative or magic in it, and computers (having no nerves whatsoever) cannot match humans in this field.

  perfidious: <An Englishman: ....The 4...e5 and 5...d5 gambit can pose a lot of challenges to White....>

Agreed; while in my playing days I would sometimes play 3.e3 to avoid the Benoni/Benko complex for a change of pace, 3.Nf3 always seemed slack and it never crossed my mind to have a go at it.

Apr-21-13  ketchuplover: Me and Mr.Jones sounds like a nice title to moi :)
