Aug-02-07  flamboyant: This game was today's lecture in playchess.com , there is so many crazy lines, its quite incredible! As Denis pointed out, it is probably the first time in chess history that a player actually put 2 of his pieces in a fork (move 16-17)
Mar-10-09  Pennypacker: I stumbled upon this game when reading Rowson's "The seven deadly chess sins".

16...Bf5!!! One heck of a move. Bad a** game from Tiger.

  Phony Benoni: Sometimes, you just want to sit back and enjoy the game. Analyzing too deeply would take away much of the pleasure.
Mar-28-11  picard: 15. exd5 looks interesting too
Mar-28-11  KingV93: Fantastic game. Very interesting way to play the Kings Indian. I'll bet White was fairly anxious for the post mortem thinking 'where did I go wrong?'
Mar-28-11  joupajou: <Whiterook48> Persson is a GM from Sweden who plays "some of the wildest chess on the planet".

<Pennypacker> When I saw 16. ..Bf5 my jaw hit the floor.

Persson clearly had a vision, saw something from a distance, and he consistently worked to get there. E.g. WN in A8: there was no hurry capturing it, because it had nowhere to go.

Very entertaining game!

Mar-28-11  newzild: More desperado combinations than you could shake a stick at.

  ossipossi: Heavy-duty brain by Persson, I must say. Strategically speaking, <9.b4> is critical, without being a blunder, as far as it open the way to BSB. White then begins a manouvre on QS that leaves him exposed to deadly black moves, not least <18. .. e4>. And please don't tell me about Rybka saying "White it's OK", or I'll switch to Cluedo.

21.d7 could be worth trying, regardless of black's attack. It would be interesting to know what the "wild" Swede had planned for that move.

  Gilmoy: <flamboyant: As Denis pointed out, it is probably the first time in chess history that a player actually put 2 of his pieces in a fork: 16..Bf5 17..Nd5>

To put <both> pieces into a pawn fork is rare, but not that rare. IIRC, we just saw that at Amber this month: canonical Nd5 vs. a Sicilian Najdorf(?), Black declined, Nf5 <have your pick> exf5. (Maybe Amber doesn't count because it's non-classical.)

Here's one, a Sicilian Velimirovic: Fedorov vs Z Lanka, 1997 (PotD 2008/11/09), a (not-so-)canonical <13.Nf5 b5 14.Bd5>:

Same theme of overworking e6. I guess in Rg1 positions, White's deeper motive is to deflect g half-open. Black flipped the principle <can capture only one> to its contrapositive <you're not both getting away>, and ignored both pieces until <19.Nxg7> one of them got away, then promptly <19..Bxd5> cashed the other.

To put only <the 2nd> piece into a pawn fork (i.e. to ignore a pawn thrust and leave the 1st piece there) is rare-but-been-done, on the principle that you're sacking one piece regardless, and the pawn can't get them both.

L Mista vs J Fichtl, 1974 (PotD 2007/04/01), after <15..g5 19.Nf4>:

It's not a true fork, because the pawn is pinned, so the Nf4 isn't really in danger. Black never does get the B, either.

Mar-28-11  goodevans: <joupajou: This is the position after 20. ..Qxa3.

21.d7 could be worth trying, ...>

That indeed seems to be the critical position. Up until this point I was convinced white was winning, being the exchange up and with two connected pawns on the 6th rank.

But he has the joint threats of <21 ... exf3> and <21 ... Qxf1> to contend with. His chosen response, <21 Nh4>, didn't look good to me.

As you say, <21 d7>, is worthy of consideration. Black might then try <21 ... exf3> in the hope of 22 d8=Q? Nxe2+ 23 Kh1 fxg2+ 24 Kxg2 Qh3+ 25 Kh1 Qf3#, but simply <22 Bxf3> should be good enough for white.

  sevenseaman: Sublime, fluid chess from Hillarp from 23.. Qxc1 onwards.

  kevin86: If white interposes,he loses a rook by fork;if he moves the king,the penalty will be immediate mate!
Mar-28-11  chessaddict25: come on....isn't there anything better than 23Be6?.....
Mar-28-11  Penguincw: Nice mating net.
Mar-28-11  Sho: White pawn forks black knight and bishop.

Such forks are common. But this is the first time I have seen the forked player move his pieces INTO the fork.

(I just think that's cool.)

  waustad: I believe Tal once pointed out that the opponent can only take one piece at a time. This one was fun.
Jan-16-13  master of defence: What´s wrong with the simple 17.exf5? If 17...e4 18.Rb1 Nbd5 19.Nd2 and so what?
Jan-16-13  Albertan: <master of defence: What´s wrong with > <the simple 17.exf5? If 17...e4 > <18.Rb1 Nbd5 19.Nd2 and so what?>

19.Nd2? would be a mistake in your variation because of 19...Nc3. Play might continue: 20.Qc2 Nfxe2+ 21.Kh1 (only move) 21...Nxb1 22.Rxb1 Nd4 23.Qxe4 Qxe8

Jun-28-14  Lonnie Lurko: Putting your own pieces into a fork:
try Miles vs Nunn, 1976

Sep-03-14  SpiritedReposte: This game goes from insane complications in the middlegame to a crystal clear picture of harmony in the ending (at least for Black). The KID amazes.
