Feb-02-09  WhiteRook48: lively game
Feb-24-09  WhiteRook48: I thought Black was winning this game.
Premium Chessgames Member Did Jonny Hector really play 1.h4 here? If Black was a total beginner one could imagine him playing an awful opening, as if to say, "the opening doesn't matter" -- but Paul Boersma is no weak player.

Dec-25-10  sevenseaman: Opening aside, Boersma's Fide rating is 2304; no push over. If 29...Qxd3 was a slip, why is this game here on

  al wazir: Why not 28. Ne4 ?
Dec-26-10  sneaky pete: <al wazir> Because of 28... Qe3+.

  al wazir: <sneaky pete: Because of 28... Qe3+.>

That's a pretty good reason. Although, considering the trouble black got himself into when he played 28...Qe3 in the actual game, maybe not enough of a reason.


Apr-23-17  chessgame901: <why h4???>

  Gejewe: <> <chessgame901> Why 1.h4.. :-)
In the Budapest Spring festival in 1985 where Jonny Hector was also playing, a lot of attention was attracted by the Hungarian player Gabor Kadas(2280) who scored an IM norm and defeated IM Leon Pliester (2370) with 1.h4.. The opening went as follows. 1.h4 e5 2.d4 exd4 3.Pf3 Pf6 4.c3 dxc3 5.Pxc3 d5 6.e4 Pxe4 7.Dxd5 Pxc3 8.Dxd8+ Kxd8 9.bxc3 Le6 10.Pg5 Ld6 11.Pxe6+ fxe6 12. Lg5+ Kd7 13.O-O-O and White was able to develop some compensation and later even won in fine style. During that event I shared a room with Leon and thus I know that he was impressed by Kadas' play. From Kadas' friends we got some additional information and game samples from this remarkable player. Once regarded as a talent, he never had the serious attitude to be able to break through, but instead always played at lighting speed and liked to play 1.h4.. and 1..h5 which he often followed up by some pawnsacrifices to muddy the waters. Because he had a sharp eye for tactics.. In Hungary he was a wellknown player and had legendary status in his hometown of Szolnok. Somewhere in the 1970ties Smyslov was invited to play an international tournament in Szolnok and the story goes that the organisers had a problem to solve. They wished their hero to play in that tournament, but did not want to insult their noted guest and former world-champion by letting him be confronted with 1.h4.. So the organisers tried to make a deal with Kadas, he was invited to play on the condition that he would play a normal first move against Smyslov. But Gabor Kadas did not give in and at the end he was not invited. That is a story that went around in those days, I do not have a clue if it was true or apocryphal :-) But back to our friend Leon Pliester who annotated the 1.h4.. loss of his for New in Chess Yearbook, adding some of the Kadas opening snippets he got from the man's friends. And our Swedish hero read the book in Dinard, was reminded of that game in Budapest and analysed this game and notes. As he told me in that particular tournament in Dinard in april, about a year later - yes I was playing there as well - is that he had an idea to improve White's gambit play by 7.Nxe4 dxe4 8.Qxd8 Kxd8 9.Ng5 and he had burnt some midnight oil to find compensation. He was sure this would shock Paul Boersma, a strong but a bit of a traditional player. Though he eventually won, the game did not go well for Jonny, and when he soon tried 1.h4.. again, with a gambit, in the all-decisive last round game of a southern French open , his play was refuted. He lost, and has never played 1.h4 again as far as I know.
