|Jan-19-07|| ||LoveThatJoker: < Defiler: <LoveThatJoker> I really enjoyed seeing how Sripadh Balasubramanian trapped Black's Queen. At no stage was blacks queen trapped. Black was forced to take the knight to avoid mate> |
Very observant, Defiler. Black was forced to part with the Queen due to earlier negligence on it's own K-side and not because of having played 17...Qc2.
In fact, 17...Qc2 is the one move which allows Black to fight on, although in a hopeless position.
I did recognize this before reading your note however...Much earlier, in fact; but didn't bother to state it here.
In the interest of exactitude though, I appreciate you calling attention to this.
|Jan-19-07|| ||aldehyde: i hope that the computers would soon b programmed, how to resign!|
this will save their dignity of being called, the "COMPUTERS"
|Jan-19-07|| ||uuft: 15. Bxh6 reminds of a rather obvious puzzle we had here lately. I'm a bit surprised Jester let it come to this: he' s usually a lot better in stopping MY 'brilliant' attacks. (8|
|Jan-19-07|| ||kevin86: This computer (Jester) is a laughingstock (if anyone uses that word any more). Black's queen faced the fire early and the king soon after.|
|Jan-19-07|| ||Shams: why is this the game of the day?|
|Jan-19-07|| ||WannaBe: <Shams> Sripadh Balasubramanian is User: stellar king |
And this game was submitted to Chess Life and it was annotated (link above) by GM Lev Alburt.
|Jan-19-07|| ||GeauxCool: Congrats <Stellar King>!|
|Jan-19-07|| ||Whitehat1963: After 17. Ng5 I can here white screaming, "Yee-haa! Jester's dead!" Then Tom Cruise requests a fly-by.|
|Jan-19-07|| ||schnarre: <Whitehat 1963> So can I!|
One could say the joke was on the Jester (should've known better than to play a french).
|Jan-19-07|| ||OhioChessFan: When the Jester lost to the Stellar King.......|
|Jan-19-07|| ||bigtatanka: Whitehat, you big stud, take me to bed or lose me forever.|
|Jan-19-07|| ||tamar: In a coat he borrowed from James Dean?|
|Jan-19-07|| ||Whitehat1963: <bigtatanka> Why don't you go dance with some wolves or something?|
|Jan-19-07|| ||bigtatanka: Don't hurt my mules.|
|Jan-20-07|| ||OhioChessFan: LOL, <tamar> I tried to work with that line. "in a French he borrowed" is as far as I got. "with his Queen trapped on d3" was one of my feebler efforts.|
|Jan-20-07|| ||Whitehat1963: And, after 17. Ng5, I can also here black singing, "You've lost that loving feeling." |
God, I hate it when he does that.
|Jan-21-07|| ||Stellar King: oh my gosh!! i am so thrilled!!!
i want to thank chessgames.com and all the kibitzers!!!!! i can't believe it !!!
|Aug-02-09|| ||Mikhail Tal fan: instead of 26.Rcd1 white could sacrify the rook with 26.g6! to continue the attack since he s winning , per example : 26.g6! Nxc1?? 27.gxf7+ Kh7 28.Bg6+ Kg7 29.Qh7# .. however , i have played Jester and beaten it in its maximum level (level 10 ) 5 seconds per move..in a similar style.. here s the game http://blog.chess.com/Mikhail-Tal/h...|
|Aug-02-09|| ||WhiteRook48: no he thinks a computer suggested Ng3+|
|Aug-03-09|| ||Mikhail Tal fan: <whiteRook48> : how the hell he could play Ng3+?, if you were talking about a move , please make sure you write down its number.. to avoid ambiguity, BTW , even if computer plays 26..Nf2+( with idea of distracting Queen )white is always winning because white can pay 27.Kg2 simply.. if you were talking about another move, please tell us.. thanks|
|Aug-03-09|| ||WhiteRook48: no it was sideline 15 Bxh6 Nxc3 16 Qg5 Ne2+ 17 Kh1 <Ng3+> 18 fxg3 Kh8 19 Qxg7#
on the other hand kh8 would also be a computer move|
|Nov-19-09|| ||htmtblair: I don't see how someone could see that far ahead in the game! How did white formulate the plan! Is anyone else astounded by this game?|
|Nov-19-09|| ||htmtblair: Anyone? I mean the calculation is uncanny... sure white had some trouble later on but still uncanny!|
|Nov-19-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 20...QE4...|
|Nov-20-09|| ||returnoftheking: <htmtblair> <I don't see how someone could see that far ahead in the game! How did white formulate the plan! >|
On the 15th move: white has way more pieces on the king side. Black has weakened his position with h6 and no way to get pieces to his king.
On the Q side he has some pressure, thus white has to act. Bxh6 gets at least 2 pawns for the piece and an attack, so most people would definitely play this even without being able to calculate it all.
Also note that the theme of K side attack is quite common in the french.
