  luzhin: 28...Nxg7 29.Nh6 mate. Sweet. 28.Qg5+ would also have done the trick.
Oct-12-07  superuser171: Lovely attack by Adly...Laznicka BTW is the Czech Rep. champion (youngest ever)...I would like to hear from you viewers what u think about white's 22-Qh5 and why black didn't play 22...Bxe4 ? ..28-Qg7+ Ouch what a mate !
Oct-14-07  amr52: what a game!!!!!

  Jim Bartle: Very nice, leaving Adly with 7/8. But it looks to have been his high point--he lost the next two or three games.

Position after 28 ♕h6-g7+! <clearance for f5-h6> ♘e6xg7 29 ♘f5-h6#:

Black paid dearly for failing to sufficiently notice that 27 ♗f4-d6 took away the f8-flight square from his Black g8-king, resulting in the incredibly tactically dangerous <STALEMATED KING> condition.

  notyetagm: Position after 25 ... ♖a8-e8:

White now wins by playing four consecutive moves on Black's <WEAK DARK SQUARES>: 26 ♗c1-f4! ♖e8-c8 27 ♗f4-d6 ♘c6-d4 28 ♕h6-g7+! ♘e6x♕g7 29 ♘f5-h6#, resulting in the smothered mate shown below.

<<<This mating combination is possible because of Black's weakness on the <DARK SQUARES>.>>>

Black does not have a dark-squared e5-pawn to prevent 26 ♗c1-f4!. Black does not have a dark-squared e7-bishop to prevent 27 ♗f4-d6. Black does not have a dark-squared g7-pawn to keep the White queen out of h6 and also prevent 29 ♘f5-h6#. Black has -zero- control over these critical <DARK SQUARES> f4, d6, and h6 and is mated(!) because of this <COLOR COMPLEX> weakness.

A <WEAK COLOR COMPLEX> is bad.

A <WEAK COLOR COMPLEX> near your king is worse.

A <WEAK COLOR COMPLEX> near your king that can be exploited is -fatal-.

Oct-16-07  amr52: Ahmad Adly is the world junior champion
Oct-16-07  dippel: What a chessplayer! This guy is dangerous.
Oct-16-07  Riverbeast: Wonder how many rating points Adly's going to gain. He put the hurt on a lot of 2600+ players in this tournament

<Here's a diag from Adly's crushing win over Laznicka in round 8. White to play. A rather one-sided diagram I admit, but the finishing maneuver is cute in how totally helpless Black is to stop it. 26.Bf4! and other than losing half his material there is nothing Black can do to prevent Bd6 with Qf8+ (or Qg7+) and Nh6 mate. The game finished: 26..Rc8 (26..Ncd4 27.Nxd4 cxd4 28.Rxe6! fxe6 29.Qg5+ Kf8 30.Bd6+! Ouch.) 27.Bd6 Ncd4 28.Qg7+ 1-0. Unfortunately for Egypt's favorite sun (god), Adly lost to Wang Hao and Popov in the next two rounds.>

That sure is a nice variation pointed out by Mig in the notes there: 26 ... Nc6-d4 27 Nf5xNd4 c5xd4 28 Re1xNe6! <remove the guard of g7> f7xe6 29 Qh6-g5+ Kg8-f8 30 Bf4-d6+! <Black d7-queen overworked defending d6,g7>


click for larger view

These lines are all beautiful tactical variations but notice Black's underlying strategic problem: Black is defenseless to stop these beautiful mating ideas because he does -not- have a <DARK-SQUARED BISHOP> to defend the critical d6-dark square.

Also notice the immense power of the White <KILLER PAWN>, the f6-pawn.

Oct-25-07  XMarxT3hSpot: What if 28. Qg5+? :)

Btw I agree with <notyetagm> that Adly brilliantly utilized Black's weakness on dark square.

Feb-15-08  tranquil simplicity: I first saw this game on BBC 2 Teletext Pg 568. It is one of the BEST games I have ever seen. The young Egyptian GM (watch this space) not only mates a 2600+ GM in FINE STYLE but even the moves he makes are certainly not anything I expected. I can hardly guess correctly 'his' next move. This is a characteristic I noted also in Fischer's games. No wonder Laznicka was blown away!! Carlsen, Aronian and Radjabov watch your backs as the likes of the Brilliant Ahmed Adly steps into your gang!
Oct-09-08  TITIKIZA: even 28.Qf8+!! was working!!!
May-30-12  vinidivici: 23. Nf6....wow is it sound>??
May-30-12  vinidivici: is it 23> Nf6 is that strong...? any refutation of that sacrifice?
May-30-12  vinidivici: someone?
May-31-12  vinidivici: nobody?
