Dec-22-06  MarvinTsai: There must be something wrong about 28.Rg1??

  amadeus: 28.Ng6+ and mate? 28...Kg7 29.f6+ Kxf6 30.Rf1

(i) 30... Kg5 31.Rd5#
(ii)30... Kg7 31.Be8+ Kg8 32.Rf8#

Dec-22-06  NBZ: A third possible variation: 28. ... Kh7 29. Be6#

I think he was probably in time pressure when he played Rg1??

Dec-22-06  Ulhumbrus: Position after 27..Ne2

There is no need to repeat the variations which Amadeus has given.

Dec-22-06  papynchase:

No wonder Negi lost the match! If someone beautiful wore something like that I would never even manage to calculate a one-mover!!

Dec-22-06  malthrope: This 'Amity Grandmaster Challenge' match isn't over yet! Still 6 Rapids (25m/10s) plus 6 Blitz (5m/5s) still yet to go! :-)

We might as well throw in the 'kitchen sink' and add "iii" with 30... Bf2 31. Rxf2+ Nf4 32. Rxf4+ Kg5 (32... Kg7 33. Be8+ mates as given above by amadeus) 33. Rd5# and that covers all of the variations! BTW: I started a topic on this match in 'ChessNinja' just in case anyone might be interested...

The 'Amity Grandmasters Challenge' - Lahno vs. Negi.

The Rapids and Blitz games should be a lot of fun! ;-)

PS: If tied after 18 games (accumulative score is used) then of course they will play a sudden death blitz game (where white gets six minutes against black five minutes - no increments - and white will have to win in 'Armageddon'). The cash prize in this case will be shared and the final game will only be for the winner's trophy.

Jan-13-07  Tactic101: Wonder how much time Parimarjan had here. Ng6 followed by f6 seems pretty straightfoward to me (of course, I don't have to worry about the pressure or the time on my clock). Lahno got lucky here.

Note: Parimarjan goes to the same school I do. I played him once in a simultaneous. It ended in a pretty interesting endgame. That used to be my favourite game, until I got a draw with Lahno in the next simultaneous.

This was also been published on a recent The Guardian issue. I wonder if this could be easy for other GMs to spot this...
