|Dec-22-08|| ||zzzzzzzzzzzz: the problem with white is that he dosen't castle|
|Dec-22-08|| ||zzzzzzzzzzzz: Qxe3 is useless|
|Dec-22-08|| ||Confuse: Castling in a closed game doesn't provide that much benefit... I believe he was unprepared for the sudden sacrifices that appeared to be in his favor... but as usual... material value is confusing in closed games.. and the first king to get exposed is put on camera and hounded by paparazzi. Then again, that means maybe he should have castled. What do I know? Hope this makes sense.|
|Dec-22-08|| ||dtowliat: that was a nice game.|
|Dec-22-08|| ||whiteshark: <zzz...> When should he castle and to witch side?|
|Dec-22-08|| ||newzild: That was a pretty average game - until the excellent 23.Qxg3+!|
|Dec-22-08|| ||WhiteRook48: I like the pun, but not the game.
Comparable to Fischer's ...Be6!! In the game of the century or Morphy's Nxb5!! in the opera game.
|Dec-22-08|| ||cydmd: Notice that accepting the queen sacrifice in g3 is a forced move (24.Kf1 Bxd3! threatening 25... Qf2#).|
|Dec-22-08|| ||YetAnotherAmateur: What really surprised me at first about this game is 2. e5, when the standard 2. dxe5 Qxd5 3. Nc3 was available with a significant edge for white. You would think that Segal knew this, given that it this was one of the oldest openings out there.|
I would have at least considered as white 11. Qd2 followed by 0-0-0. It's not that castling is absolutely necessary, but it's more that f2 looks like an absolutely lousy place for the king.
And lastly, the mating sequence is absolutely brilliant.
|Dec-22-08|| ||niemzo: I agree that Kf2 was pretty bad. But I think you should reconsider your opening bias against the scandinavian. Unless if, you can prove the advantage that white gets,of course. 2.e5 is actually not that bad, although black equalises easily.|
|Dec-22-08|| ||Phony Benoni: Not bad, but probably not Fox's most brilliant game. Take a look at this one: A W Fox vs H E Bauer, 1901|
|Dec-22-08|| ||Awraq Elmater: this game is good but it was dominated by A W Fox (one side game) i prefer the chalenging game whine you see a good Attack & counterattack as well
not attack & defense
by the way the whight defense was useless
|Dec-22-08|| ||megatacos: very nice game|
|Dec-22-08|| ||WhiteRook48: and a Skewer to boot with the checkmate|
|Dec-22-08|| ||AnalyzeThis: This was a nifty little combination. Some of these guys weren't strategic geniuses, but they could certainly calculate the daylights out of some positions.|
|Dec-22-08|| ||missing kasparov: <analyzethis> check out my post on the nickel vs world game also leave your comments on what you think of my kasparov vs deep junior post please ?thanks i might right a book|
|Sep-15-12|| ||shakman: The structure kind of resembles to caro-kann structure....|
