|Aug-04-07|| ||syracrophy: 14.♘xc4!! No perpetual! Wow! Awesome!|
|Aug-04-07|| ||apple pi: The queen sac was very far-sighted; good piece activity by white|
|Aug-04-07|| ||patzerboy: Amazing. For much of the game (moves 18-26) after White gave up his Queen, Black was effectively playing with only a Queen against two Rooks, two Knights, and a Bishop! Then he finally got another piece into play.|
|Aug-04-07|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: I wonder where the TN occurs--is it the stunning 14.Nxc4, or is it one of Black's earlier moves? Where did these guys leave theory?|
The only other game I could find in the database is this one-
Hoang Thang Trang vs A Szieberth, 2001
-and you can see, it was played after this game.
|Aug-04-07|| ||wouldpusher: Black traded all of his developed pieces for a queen. Meanwhile, White posts his pieces in effective squares and uses his center pawns in his attack.|
|Aug-04-07|| ||dexterious: What a nice game!|
|Aug-04-07|| ||sanyas: This... is absolutely perfect. An enormous conception. Once the Queen is sacked, the tactics practically play themselves. The most dramatic possible refutation of 10...♗xf2+. 10...f5! was much better. Of course if 13...♘xa1 14.♘e4 0-0 15.♕d1 etc.|
|Aug-04-07|| ||RandomVisitor: 5...e6 was the last book move.
9...O-O avoids the mess that happened in the game and is =.
10...Bxd5 11.Nb3 Bxf2+ 12.Rxf2 Qb6 was better for Black.
19...g6 20.Rd1 or 19...a6 20.Bf1 gives black drawing chances, Rybka eval is 0.31/19.
18.Ng5 would have kept the white attack going in another direction.
|Aug-04-07|| ||sanyas: <RandomVisitor> <10...Bxd5 11.Nb3 Bxf2+ 12.Rxf2 Qb6 was better for Black.> |
Forgive me, but to my eye 13.♘bd4 looks winning for White.
<19...g6 20.Rd1 or 19...a6 20.Bf1 gives black drawing chances, Rybka eval is 0.31/19.>
To 19...g6 White would respond not 20.♖d1 but 20.♘d2, and to 19...a6 not 20.♗f1 but 20.♗c4.
|Aug-04-07|| ||kevin86: Great attack by white! Who needs a queen when knights,bishops,and rooks can cause so much havoc? Even a pawn now and then can spice up an offensive.|
|Aug-04-07|| ||playground player: I can't be sure whether I'm looking at a purposeful Queen sac, very, very deep, or a great player overcoming a really bad blunder.|
|Aug-04-07|| ||Calli: Impressive. 14.Nxc4!!!, the Knight "Hip Hop" beat Zueger. ;->|
|Aug-04-07|| ||Sneaky: A poker pun. A "bad beat" is when you skillfully invest your money in a hand where you are the enormous favorite to win, but end up losing anyhow.|
|Aug-04-07|| ||fm avari viraf: Indeed, a wonderful game with a stunning Queen sacrifice & lovely tactics & techniques till the very end that makes this game very instructive & lively.|
|Aug-04-07|| ||JG27Pyth: That Queen sac is worthy of Fischer, Tal, Nezhmetdinov, etc. wow.|
|Aug-06-07|| ||sanyas: <playground player> Definitely the former. It's all about taking advantage of the suddenly exposed king, and Black's underdevelopment. White's wonderful pawn center is what makes the attack possible. It must have been an intuitive decision.|
|Jul-12-08|| ||Vollmer: Please see V Gashimov vs Shariyazdanov (Game 30 in his page) for another fine Queen trade for Rook and Knight .|
|Feb-21-09|| ||WhiteRook48: nice pin on the rook. It must have Beat Zueger|
|May-31-12|| ||vinidivici: this shows how undeveloped pieces can be much more costly than a queen.|
