Nov-29-07  personal opawnion: Rad1! Incredible - the bishop has plenty of available flight squares, but after the knight hops, it's toast no matter what.
Nov-29-07  badest: Yeah, it is hard to believe that a knight can cover so many dark squares... :)
Nov-29-07  Merlot: I don't get the idea of 12...Nd7. It seems to put black in troubles right away.
Mar-28-08  wanabe2000: The discovered check will win the bishop on all squares. 32. Rd1! is brilliant.
Apr-06-08  Dr. J: What happens after 32 ... Bb6? All I see is 33 Nc4+ Kc7, 34 Nxb6 Kxb6, 35 Rd6+ with a presumably winning position, but less than the win of the Black Bishop that previous commentators seem to see.
Apr-06-08  Buddy Revell: <Dr. J> After 32...♗b6, it happens just like you said. Still an impressive Knight, though.
Apr-06-08  WickedPawn: The black bishop has eight (8) squares to hop on to, but they are all covered by the knight's discovered check. Nice stuff.

  Gilmoy: 7.Nc3 accepts doubled b-pawns to get half-open a -- and after 18..Ba7 22..b5 it actually pays off!? 10.Be3 11.Nd4 is as subtle as a bulldozer, 13.e4 a <GM pawn jab>, accepting temporary non-solidity for subtle compensation -- mobility, open files, cramping? We patzers tend to just shy away from such complications.

Maybe 12..Nd7 because Black feared that 13.Bxf6 leaves him with no easy way to attack "weak" b3. 15..Bc5 sacs the g-pawn for counterplay against b2/f2 -- but White cleverly defends both with tempo.

Apr-06-08  kinghunt72: Anyone want to analyze... 32... Bxb2 33. Nc4+ Ke7 34. Nxb2 Bc2 35. Bd2 Bxb3, two pawns might be a better advantage.
Apr-06-08  Mac3: Your pun "armageddon out of here" left me in raptures!!
Apr-06-08  ricardolopez: <Dr J> If 32...Bb6, then 33.Ke4+, and now

I) 33...Ke7 (Ke8 loses quality to Nf6+) 34. Bg5+, Kf7 35. Rf1+, Kg7 ( f file loses the bishop to fd8+) 36. Bf6+, Kh6 37. g4 and mate is coming soon.

II) 33...Kc7 34. Rc1+, Kd8 35.Bg5+,Ke8
36. Kf6+ 37.Kxg8 38. Rc8+

Apr-06-08  TrueBlue: could be a Tuesday puzzle before last move ...
Apr-06-08  kinghunter: Could anyone explain to me what the pun even means?

  WannaBe: It's a play on "I'm getting out of here." Believe this game is an Armageddon game, in which white have more time on the clock than black, but white <MUST> win.

Otherwise, black is the winner.

Apr-06-08  xrt999: I would like chessgames to start posting some games where players who are down material actually fight and come back to win, instead of just giving up.

  DarthStapler: Very nice one
Apr-07-08  wanabe2000: <dr.J> You are correct that the bishop is not lost out right with 32....Bb6, however after 33.Nc4+ Kc7 34.Nb6 Kb6 35.Be3+ Kc7 36. Rd6 Bf7 37.Bb6+ Kc8 38.Bf1 Black is running out of moves.

  kevin86: Chess is a fighting game...not an escape game. Poor black could do neither.
