Oct-26-09  birthtimes: Kalinkin's klunker?!...1000 out of 1000 White players (or Rybkas) would not have seen what was coming at them, beginning with move 16, by Black. Nezh creates a multitude of light-squared weaknesses around White's king before they even exist! A true magician!

  kamalakanta: Yes! And the position after 22....h4 is a delight to see!
Nov-24-14  TheBish: 23...h3!! is an amazing move. Most players would think long and hard before finally taking the knight, but that would be far from best. As Tal points out in "Attack With Mikhail Tal" (after 23. a4), "White does not even suspect any danger, especially since after 23...hxg3 24. hxg3 ♘h5 he, of course, was not intending 25. f4?? ♕xg3 26. fxe5 ♘f4 27. ♕d2 ♘h3+, when he has to agree to perpetual check, since 28. ♔f1 loses to 28...♗e6 29. b3 ♕h2 with the threat of 30...♕g1+ or immediately 30...♗g4. Instead, the simple 25. axb5 cxb5 26. ♗b3, with the threat of 27. ♖xa6, would have given him a material advantage and good prospects."

After 23...h3!!, "It transpires that it is not the white knight that is attacked, but the securely defended g2 square, and -- all the suddenly weakened light squares on the kingside. Surprisingly, White no longer has any satisfactory defence."
