|Jan-18-10|| ||rune ohlsson: Now - 15. h3 is a blunder. With 15. Nd5 White would avoid all problems.|
Anyway, 17. g3 Qxh3 18. Nf3 Bh6 19. d5 White can save the game in an unbelievable way
|Jun-20-10|| ||plang: This is a really nice attack. The piece sacrifice 15..Nxf2 was probably not that hard to find, probably 21..Rxf3+ also but 28..Re4 is really pretty and my favorite move was 23..Qh2 which was far from obvious.|
|Nov-12-13|| ||offramp: Very surprising attack. It seems to come right out of the blue.|
|Nov-12-13|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Superb example of the speculative sacrifice. Looking at 25.Rc3,Rxf3+; 26.Rxf3,Bxd2; 27.Rxd2 leaves White with 2R & B vs. Q, and maybe Black has to take the perpetual, if it exists.|
|Nov-12-13|| ||Moszkowski012273: Sound attack, yet black did blunder into what should of been a draw with 24...Bh6. 24...f4 with the idea of swinging the bishop over to h4 is absolutely crushing.|

I do not see how this is good for white, maybe you could explain. After 19d5 that Bh6 you propose takes on e3 with + covered by the rook and then Qh1+ , black B takes that Rc1 and either a bishop or a knight with the Q leaving a completely exposed king. What you set up seems to me completely lost for white, please explain.

should have = should've
|Nov-12-13|| ||Ratt Boy: <rune ohlsson: 17. g3 Qxh3 18. Nf3 Bh6 19. d5 White can save the game in an unbelievable way>|
Yeah, that is unbelievable: 19...♗xe3 20.♔e1, ♕xg3 mates.
|Nov-12-13|| ||hellopolgar: 15 ... Nxf2 is not a sound sacrifice per se, but against someone 150 points lower, it is.|
|Nov-12-13|| ||TheTamale: Super fun game. For a while I didn't think Sadler was going to pull it off.|
|Nov-12-13|| ||kevin86: It looks like a game Bobby Boucher would play-or some reckless hockey player.|
|Nov-12-13|| ||Balmo: This reminds of me of Tal's classic game against I think Gurgenidze, although I can't remember what year. It came from a Benoni defence.|
|Nov-12-13|| ||Balmo: If I'd been White I'd have tried 24. Ke1. However there seems to be an interesting line (which is probably deeply flawed) that goes... 24. Ke1 Bh6! 25. Rd3 (trying to create an escape square) Qg1+ 26. Kd2 Rxe2+! 27. Kxe2 Qg2+ 28. Kd1 Qf1 mate.|
|Aug-04-16|| ||tigreton: There's a very nice variation. After 24 Rd3, trying to exchange the monster Rook on e3, Black could play 24 ... Bf6! and if 25 Rxe3 Qh1+ 26 Kf2 Bh4#. Great attack by Sadler, I think most of the moves are very difficult to find.|
|Aug-30-16|| ||Phony Benoni: A tribute to the late Gene Wilder, who passed away yesterday.|
|Aug-30-16|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Pun on "Blazing Saddles." Very nice way to remember the late Gene Wilder.|
|Aug-30-16|| ||AlicesKnight: Agreed <PB> and <Englishman>. 14....Ng4 produces a dangerous attack almost out of thin air and white fails to prevent the entry of the black R (17.g3: Qxh3; 18.Nf3 threat Rh1 looks a possibility); 28.... Re4 is beautifully calm but deadly.|
|Aug-30-16|| ||offramp: Blazing Saddles included a very good chess scene.|
|Aug-30-16|| ||HeMateMe: here's the board, the Waco Kid has been checkmated. I don't think there's a mate on the board. Another warped Hollywood chess scene *sigh*.|
here's video of the chess scene:
There's another reference to chess in the movie--a well known line. Anyone know what it is?
|Aug-30-16|| ||weary willy: I can't work out the position, but isn't there a bishop on a6 controlling f1, a rook on the second rank and a rook shooting down the e-file?|
|Aug-30-16|| ||LivBlockade: Olympiad week continues with a tribute to Gene Wilder.|
|Aug-30-16|| ||kevin86: A good attacking game.
But, I shoot with this hand: Jim (Gene Wilder) Blazing Saddles.

While 25.Rc3 is superior to the text 25.Qe1, after
25.Rc3 Qxh3+ 26.Kg1 Bf4 27.Qxe3 Qg3+ 28.Kf1 Bxe3 29.Rxe3 h5 30.Bb5 f4 31.Rc3 h4 32.Rd2 h3 33.Rcc2 Qxf3+
white is still hopeless

|Aug-31-16|| ||Mendrys: A stellar ending where White is about to lose every piece he has on the way to checkmate for the lone Rook at black's disposal. |
As others have noted it's a good thing that Zagorskis didn't have access to a strong chess engine during the game but it was a game between two humans worthy of note that would have made Bronstein proud.
