|Dec-17-06|| ||syracrophy: Those ♙s are massive! Can someone stop them?
The ♖s are horribly passive, and all they can do is to cover the poor ♔, that is being attacked by the fierce and menacing advance of the little soldiers
|Dec-17-06|| ||aazqua: What a great game. Great sac and exploitation with all the little fellows banding together to overthrow the dark empire.|
|Dec-17-06|| ||Sularus: White weanie.|
|Dec-17-06|| ||Gryznx: 24.Rxh5!! that's great|
|Dec-17-06|| ||Karpova: An amazing game showing Erenburg's talent!|
|Dec-17-06|| ||Rubenus: Indeed great game. White takes all Black's remaining pawns after the rook sacrifice. Very well played by Erenburg.|
|Dec-17-06|| ||Themofro: A great game by white requiring great foresight to sac the rook to take all the remaining pawns and force the rooks and two bishops into passivity.|
|Dec-17-06|| ||Dr.Lecter: I don't see why not Kb7 or Ka8. Why should the queen take the knight?|
|Dec-17-06|| ||fzoozle: 26. ...Ka8 loses immediately to 27. Qxa6+.
26. ...Kb7 is met by 27. Re7, pinning the black queen. Black still ends up trading queen for rook and knight.
|Dec-17-06|| ||Rocafella: It's happened. CG.com has finally resorted to incorporating sexual innuendo into puns for GOTD. One thing to say to this disgusting act. Great stuff, keep up the good work! =D|
|Dec-17-06|| ||unsound: <Rocafella> I think I should save you possible future embarrassment and point out that there is a vast difference between a "pawn shop" and a "porn shop."|
|Dec-17-06|| ||technical draw: <Roca> I don't get it. What sexual innuendo?|
|Dec-17-06|| ||al wazir: Notice how white began hoarding ♙s right from the start, with 7. b4 and 10. Bf4. And his reward was to have seven of them left for the endgame, to none for his opponent! "A pawnie saved is a pawnie earned."|
|Dec-17-06|| ||technical draw: 24.Rxh5 must have shocked Fridman, it sure shocked me. It's hard to see giving up a whole rook for (apparently) nothing.|
|Dec-17-06|| ||kevin86: Two rooks and a bishop can normally beat a queen. However,white,in fact,has a crushing advantage with his SEVEN pawns!|
Was this a great finish or not!?
|Dec-18-06|| ||Jole: <fzoozle> in regards to your analysis of the kb7 possibility, while it wins, I think that Na5+ is better considering the following lines:|
a) Ka8, Qxa6+...Qa7 (forced), Qc6+...Rb7, Re8...Qb8, RxQ+ followed by mate
b)Kc8, Qxa6+...Kd7 (if Kd8 then Nc6+, Kd7 NxR+...QxR, Qc6+...Kd8, Re8#, RxR, BxR+, QxB where the black pieces are not doing enough and the white queen can nullify the queen and force a tradeoff where the extra 5 pawns will make the difference (there might be a tactic for white that makes it all easier from my final position...havent checked)
c)QxN, bxQ...RxR, QxR+...Rc6, Qd7+...Rc7, c6 and the c7 rook is lost
Anyway WOOHOO!!! this is my first analysis on this site (although it wasn't done with a comp so I may have missed some important lines)
|Dec-18-06|| ||Rocafella: I know the difference between porn and pawn thankyou, the sexual innuendo is the implication of a porn shop, I wish I wouldn't have put anything now =P|
|Dec-21-06|| ||DHW: I don't think black should have played 8...a6 in the opening of this game, the pawn on a6 turns out to be a weakness throughout the whole game. 8...Qc7 looks safer to me|
|Feb-07-08|| ||D.Observer: Seven pawns attack! Is there an eight-♙ attack?|
|Feb-12-08|| ||ganstaman: <D.Observer: Seven pawns attack! Is there an eight-♙ attack>|
Well, it's not 8 on 0 pawns, but it is nice: Judit Polgar vs Bacrot, 1999
|Aug-26-09|| ||GrahamClayton: <d.Observer>Seven pawns attack! Is there an eight-P attack?|
Tim Krabbe mentions a game where one player kept all 8 pawns while his opponent lost all 8 pawns in his Open Chess Diary section of his "Chess Curiosities" web site:
