|Jan-03-08|| ||Morphyisgod: 8. NxF7, what do you guys think?|
|Jan-03-08|| ||nimzo knight: 8. Nxf7 will give up very active bishop and knight for a cornered rook and a pawn (maybe 2). Probably not advisable.|
|Jan-03-08|| ||apexin: After Nxf7 it doesnt look like white has enought compensation.|
|Jan-03-08|| ||FookiMonster: is 3...Qd6 a bad line in the Scandinavian? Tiviakov seems to favor it. for a long time i was thinking of learning & playing 3...Qd6 in the Scandinavian but got discouraged. does it offer winning chances at all?|
|Jan-03-08|| ||kevin86: I have never seen the third move,Qd6,before. I don't see it as good because it seems that the queen and knight are subject to forks later and one must soon be moved again.|
In the end,the black pawn on f7 is indefensable and the queen and rook are squeezed on the seventh row and unable to assist. Of course if 41...f6,then 42 ♖e8#. The squeeze does fit the game,but not the name.
A new year game,just one day old. Happy 2008!
|Jan-03-08|| ||kevin86: If 40 ♕f6 ♔e8! prevents the mate.|
|Jan-03-08|| ||Riverbeast: The Big Wax|
|Jan-03-08|| ||acirce: <is 3...Qd6 a bad line in the Scandinavian?>|
Well, Tiviakov does believe in it. Then again, that's not the only odd thing he believes in.
|Jan-03-08|| ||kevin86: As to the above post,I stand corrected. 3...♕d6 is the second most popular move on the database in this opening.(almost 500 times). Also,it seems to have the best result of ANY third move in the position.|
|Jan-03-08|| ||zb2cr: Trying answer potential patzer's point of view questions--Black did not play 38. ... fxg6 because of 39. Rxg6! leaving Black with 2 ways of getting mated:|
1. 39. ... Kh8; 40. Qf8+, Kh7; 41. Qg8#.
2. 39. ... Kh7; 40. Rg3+, Kh8; 41. Qf8+, Kh7; 42. Qg8#.
|Jan-03-08|| ||Bobsterman3000: <Knights of Ni!> would have been a better pun.|
|Jan-03-08|| ||Bobsterman3000: Tiviakov spent half his energy trying to exchange dark-squared bishops, which don't even affect the final mating sequence...|
|Jan-03-08|| ||Bobsterman3000: Qd6 is a very common line in the Scandinavian, to my knowledge. It's as good as any other line for black in the Scandinavian, for whatever that's worth...|
|Jan-03-08|| ||A.G. Argent: UdayanOwen, <To be utterly confusing yet still very funny is a good art to master>, Dude, while I agree with the funny part, to say it's utterly confusing is a bit understated, don't you think. Could be it's just what happens to some chess people after too much coffee, what with the fertile, imaginative minds and all but there's also a dash of clinical insanity tossed into that there particular recipe/post. No offense whatsoever, Big Jack, I like it. Don't ever change.|
|Jan-03-08|| ||drpoundsign: The art of the sacrifice is well demonstrated here. |
As a beginner I think I play a sort of semi-Scandinavian by accident when my opening falls apart. lol

Yes, jackmandoo's post was a gem. When I said confusing, I meant confusing for the reader... I'd be interested to see him decipher it for us, because I imagine his metaphors can be unravelled from that wild mind to reveal an actual sensible explanation for his feelings about the game!!
Keep it up Jack
|Jan-03-08|| ||be3292: <jackmandoo> if you mean "wooly," I agree with everything you said.|
|Jan-29-08|| ||aazqua: What's wrong with 9 bc4? I don't see how that isn't game over for black.|
|Jan-29-08|| ||Phony Benoni: <aazqua: What's wrong with 9.Bc4? I don't see how that isn't game over for black.>|
Not exactly. Black can actually force the win of a piece after 9.Bc4 Qe4+ 10.Be3 Nxe5 11.dxe5 Qxc4.
White can make it interesting by offering the other bishop with 10.Qe2 Qxf4 11.Nxf7 Rg8 12.Nd6+ Qxd6 13.Bxg8, with rook and pawn for two pieces. But if Black finds that line too speculative, he can just play 10...Qxe2+ 11.Kxe2 Nxe5 or 11...e6.
|Mar-02-08|| ||you vs yourself: <UdayanOwen: <jackmandoo:> I have no idea what you are trying to say in your last post but the sheer, outrageous creativity makes it very entertaining nonetheless.>|
So the cg.com legend is making a comeback? Very nice!
|Mar-02-08|| ||Atking: Where is the opening refutation that I heard from another site? Nothing wrong for Black after simple exchanges 29...Nxd5 30.BxNd5 exBd5 31.Rxd5 Raa8 and 32...Qc6. Tiviakov tried to keep the position complex and lost.|
|May-18-08|| ||engineerX: <UdayanOwen: Sure 40.Qf6 wins but unless I've missed something, it is nowhere near as good as the game continuation.> You are missing 40.Qf6 Ke8 41.Rg8+ Bf8 42.Bb4 with a forced mate, e.g. 42...Rd6 43.Qxe5+ Re7 44.Rxf8+ Kd7 45.Bf5+ or 42...Qd6 43.Qxe5+ Kd8 44.Rxf8+|
|May-28-08|| ||Whitehat1963: Friday puzzle after 35...Ra6.|
|Jan-04-09|| ||larsen959: nobody wrote: 41..Bxa3(forced) 42.d6+!! Kxd6(forced) 43.Bxe5+ and white wins the Queen!|
|Mar-10-09|| ||blacksburg: over a year later, and as far as i know, 3...Qd6 is still doing OK. or at least i still play it sometimes, but i'm a scrub :(|
