|May-30-07|| ||Benzol: Glad to see this game is up now.|
|May-31-07|| ||KokeFischer: Ok...
If 19. ... a4 (unique to avoid Ra4++) then 20. Rb6 menacing 21. Bd5+ and 22. Rxa4++ if Black plays 20. ... Ra5
If 20. ... Ka3 then 21. Ra1 menacing check mate in a1. If 21. ... Be6 and 22. Ra1+ and 23. Bd5 menacing an unavoidable check mate.
If 21. ... Ka1 then Black is only waiting for mate
|May-31-07|| ||think: <KokeFischer> 19. ... a4 20. Rb6? bxc6, right? How about just 19. ... a4 20. Rxa4+ Rxa4 21. Bxa4, and white will win the c pawn, giving him a Bishop for a pawn and a much better position.|
|May-31-07|| ||rookattack: wouldnt 12...a6 be better??|
|May-31-07|| ||gBizzle: this is some major ownage|
|May-31-07|| ||Richard Taylor: This is an amusing game - Kai went wrong badly here!|
I must phone Wayne and tell him about this! I saw him at the ACC on Monday. Kai Jensen was rival to Murray Chandler who later became a GM. He stopped Chess to study English litt. he did PhD (I met him about 1990 or so & saw him around a lot in "poetry" circles) and Wayne is a Scientist (physics) studying or researching "Computer Vision".
I stayed with Wayne and Ortvin Sarapu etc at the CIT in Upper Hutt the next year 1978/79 and he played in the Championships and I played in the Reserve. In about 1960 or so we both played in the Auckland Schoolboys as it was then known.
I stopped chess about 1966 or so but Wayne continued and played in the NZCC. He is back playing chess again now.
He still packs a dangerous punch and specialises in the "tactical roundhouse"! A very dangeorous man!! He does indeed inhabit the Corridors of C P Snow's Power... Snow included Politics and Science in his ambit.
|May-31-07|| ||kevin86: A very funny king chase! In this case the "corridor of power" the a-file,becomes a hallway of death for the black king.|
|May-31-07|| ||Chessmensch: This is a weird game. Black violated all the rules, so to speak, which resulted in his expected and rapid demise. In addition, note his unmoved bishops and rooks. Even an inexperienced player like me could predict nearly all of white's moves. Neither player has much in the data base. Why is this GOTD?|
|May-31-07|| ||kevin86: <chessmensch> I would think because of the pun and the comical aspects of the game. Not all chess can be grand opera,there needs to be some room for Marx Brothers also.|
|May-31-07|| ||Crowaholic: Actually, White has a stunning mating combination after 18. ..a4. The main line according to computers is:|
19. Ra3+! Kxa3 20. Bd5! (threatening Bc1#) Kb2 (forced) 21. Rb4+ Kxc2 22. Ne1+ Kd1 23. Rb1+ Ke2 24. Bc4# (or Bf3#)
If 21. ..Ka3 then 22. Rb5 and 23. Bc1#
If 21. ..Ka1 then 22. Bd2! cxd2 (forced) 23. Nxd2 and 24. Rb1#
If 19. ..Kb2 then 20. Bd5 and 21. Ra2(+) and 22. Rd1# are unstoppable except for 20. Kxa3 21. Bc1#.
If 19. ..Kb1 then 20. Rb4+ Kxc2 21. Ra2+ Kd1 22. Rb1# or 21. ..Kd3 Ne1#
|May-31-07|| ||xroot: It seems like 11... e5 would be better, followed by 12. Nxe5 g5. Wins the bishop or the knight.
And 12... f6 just sucks.|
|May-31-07|| ||Neddy: A fascinating King Chase to the death!
But how about this alternative?
16.Bc4 Ka4(nothing better)
17.Bb3+ Kb4 18.a3+ Kxa3
19.Rb5 e5(or anything!)
|May-31-07|| ||granyid: hey.. what's wrong here.Is this game counted on a beautiful trap? Where black goes wrong..from where.. mind you this is trap in the opening and nice to add to collection. Ray Taylor thanks enough for the players info or else I could think I am looking for a junk game. Thanks cg.com|
|May-31-07|| ||granyid: opps!! it is Richard Taylor but I am scared on his avatar that's why i say Ray... <Richard Taylor> I am also born in the year of Saddam Hussein, one of the guys that change the world until now..and of chess who is born in 1963 can you supply me? I think 1963 is the turning point..|
<Hey guys it is only with me and Richard...>
|Jun-01-07|| ||granyid: to end this opening malady... I suggest black 6th move .. Nxc3 is wrong.very ..very wrong..|
Guys..can you help me to solve the puzzle of where the malady start...
|Jun-01-07|| ||Richard Taylor: <granyid> Both players were and are very strong (ecept Kai stopped chess after being about no 2 or 3 at one stage in NZ) - Jensen was possibly on par with Chandler but Chandler took up chess and Kai et al did other things we in NZ are not a big chess country - but this game is not typical BZ Championship level play - it is one of those games!|
Shows the dangers of not being alert!
|Mar-02-09|| ||WhiteRook48: and it shows the Power of attack|
|Oct-09-09|| ||WhiteRook48: basically with no queen|
