|Jun-27-07|| ||RonB52734: <karnak64> <As a French afficiando (see: there's a French word!)> Sorry to break this to you at a time like this, but aficionado is Spanish: http://dictionary.reference.com/sea...|
|Jun-27-07|| ||twin phoenix: thanks magic castle! i do believe you're right on all accounts. your analysis certainly helped me understand the position better. i am much obliged.|
|Jun-27-07|| ||newton296: my fantasy variation here is Nf6...h6 Qh5 threatening to win the rook for free and Qg6 which leads to mate threat of Qh7. black gets mated here also no?|
|Jun-27-07|| ||THE pawn: Wow, really nice, especially since I got it. I have to admit though, black's play seemed really passive, just waiting for the blow.|
|Jun-27-07|| ||newton296: I like the slow build up too mate with Qh5 then Qg6 and it's all over .|
|Jun-27-07|| ||karnak64: <RonB52734>: Wow - Babelfish failed me again? How could this happen?|
<builttospill>: Thanx! I'll check out your collection.
|Jun-27-07|| ||karnak64: Addendum - <builttospill>: Now I have checked out the collection. Very nice. When I was, um, your age I was following East German French defense hero Wolfgang Uhlmann, and it's nice to see Morozevich pick up the cudgels in the many fine games of his you've provided.|
|Jun-27-07|| ||goodevans: Thanks <tarek1> and <sanyas> for your replies to my earlier question. I guess if black was determined to play … b6 to redeploy his bishop then preparing the way with 10 … a5 might have been worth considering. No?|
|Jun-27-07|| ||fm avari viraf: Karpov cleverly manoeuvred his pieces on the Kingside to launch an irresistible attack whereas Stojanovic pieces badly lack the coordination. After the tactical blow 23.Nf6 which brings a final catastrophe for Black as the mate is unavoidable.|
|Jun-27-07|| ||schnarre: Saw this one right away. The Rubinstenin Rubbed Out (again)!|
|Jun-27-07|| ||playground player: Gee, I got this puzzle. Now I feel like Karpov. Then again, it's those previous 22 moves that establish the vast gulf between me and a world-class master.|
|Jun-27-07|| ||dabearsrock1010: i got all appropriate lines. I think this was easier than yesterday!|
|Jun-27-07|| ||dabearsrock1010: btw i cant believe a 2588 rated player lost in such a fashion|
|Jun-27-07|| ||Crowaholic: <willyfly: If 23...h6 then 24 Qh5 Re7 25 Qg6 and it's all over.>|
If 23. ..h6 24. Qh5 gxf6 25. Qg6 (or Qf7) Ne7!, however, it's not.
|Jun-27-07|| ||Timex: This puzzle was quite easy. You needed to know that the g file was very vulnerable, and that the knight sac was the best way to open it.|
In my opinion, black should not have accepted the sacrificed knight on c6 since it gave white a free tempo to pursue a kingside attack. Sometimes, tempo can be more important than material, especially when the material can't help you.
|Jun-27-07|| ||Billy Ray Valentine: Unfortunately I remembered looking at this game, so I remembered the solution... otherwise, it would have been a nice puzzle!|
|Jun-27-07|| ||MostlyAverageJoe: Since today's puzzle does appear a bit easy, I would like to invite y'all to revisit the yesterday's one (A Arulaid vs Dus Chotimirsky, 1949, page 3). I posted there a position arising from the (justly) bashed move suggested for the black by my original (definitely too shallow) computer analysis in the 9th move.|
|Jun-27-07|| ||DCLawyer: I share <dabearsrock1010>'s surprise. Wouldn't a 2588 player normally resign after 23.Nf6, with a forced mate that even patzers like myself can see? I wonder if he was in time pressure.|
|Jun-27-07|| ||dabearsrock1010: <DCLawyer> Not just the fact he didn't resign, but moves like 20...♘b8, I mean, couldn't he sense the danger against his king...i don't understand it|
|Jun-27-07|| ||Knight13: Lol @ that rook on b7...|
|Jun-27-07|| ||Fezzik: I just wanted to say that CG.com got this one just right in terms of stars. It's a beautiful mate. If Black had missed 23.Nf6! then he might have been a gentleman and allowed the mate.|
I'm looking forward to the next position.
|Jul-22-07|| ||krpvksprv: Who said that Karpov doesn't know how to attack? Excellent game.|
|Nov-17-07|| ||HOTDOG: finally Karpov returned to play 1.e4|
|Sep-17-11|| ||Psihadal: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o45k...
A nice annotation of the game by Chess Network.

Who ever said that?
