Oct-27-09  andymac: 46. ... Nf4! and 54. ... f2+! are lovely moves. One of my favourite GOTD - possibly because it's understated until near the end.
Oct-27-09  paavoh: <Phony Benoni> ... or Korchnoi!
Oct-27-09  Andrijadj: Hypermodernism gets crushed in this game...
Oct-27-09  parisattack: <Andrijadj: Hypermodernism gets crushed in this game...>

The hypermodern openings - English, Reti, Barcza, Nimzo-Larsen - have not fared particularly well at the top the past few years...

Oct-27-09  screwdriver: I don't understand 42Qa6. The temporary attack on the undefended c pawn is too easily defended by black. And once the pawn is defended, it leaves white's pieces out of play. Why not try 42Be1 instead. That way if black moves 42...Qc8 attacking the h pawn with the knight, black can respond with 43Bg3.
Oct-27-09  waustad: The knight on the a file was essentially worthless for the whole game. I kept trying to figure out a way to get it back in action, but there weren't good squares that were easy to get to.

  Once: A funny game. The white Na4 waits for most of the game to sink into the outpost on b6, but then all the action takes place in the opposite corner of the board. The knight sac with 46...Nf4+ was inspired. But then again, is it really a sacrifice when the Nb6 is doing nothing useful?

  kevin86: A nice attack white will fall very soon.

  Phony Benoni: <Richard Taylor: Nunn played Persson - in his book he noted how he was (or is) a feared attacking player.>

I wonder if the game is missing because it was played by a NunnPersson.

  patzer2: Black's 46...Nf4+!! sacrifices a piece for a pawn in order to secure a very strong pair of central passers. The ensuing play shows passed pawns don't always have to promote to win.

For example, the deflection 56...e3!, with the threat of the discovered check after 56. Bxe3 Bf4+ , wins by setting up a pin with a mating attack in the final position.

Oct-27-09  ounos: What if White played <57. Be1> instead?

57. ...Bg3+ 58. Kg1 Bxe1 59. Qg2 Bf2+ 60. Kf1 Qh5!

Quite unbelievably, with such reduced material, no member of the White royal family can make a non-suicidal move! While of course Qd1# is threatened.

Oct-27-09  RandomVisitor: 40.Bd2 and 42.Qa6 seem to be fatal mistakes for white.
Oct-27-09  ROO.BOOKAROO: Does anybody ever read the copious and overwhelming Rybka analyses offered by Random Visitor? If anybody does, can he/she say if this improves the understanding of the tactics of the game, and if anything is remembered afterwards? I, for one, gladly skip them, more interested in focusing on and engraving in memory the key moves of this game.

  Check It Out: I appreciate <Random Visitor>'s analytic posts; they present an objective point of view that can be referred to if so desired while appreciating the art/combat of the game and it's moves. I don't think it is "overwhelming" and in the grand scheme of things doesn't take up much blog space. Skip it if you don't like it, but asking for a public consensus against <RV>'s posts seems like the waste of space on this page.

  patzer2: <ROO.BOOKAROO> I read and appreciate them. For example, in this game White's problems begin with 40. Bd2? Instead, 40. Qf1 = holds. <RV>'s deep Rybka analysis finds it rather quickly, and saves a lot of time and effort in trying to figure out where the game was won or lost.

P.S.: Those of us involved in the CG.com GM versus the World games can testify to the strength and helpfulness of RV's analysis. I daresay even some GM's find it useful.

  sackman: I also appreciate Random Visitor's posts, in this case I found it interesting that Rykba was assessing the position as equal for much longer than I was. (Perhaps unlike Rykba my assessments are biased by knowing the outcome in advance.) As noted by Check It Out, skip these if they don't appeal to you; personally I appreciate it if someone is trying to help us understand the game better. (PS very nice GOTD!)
Oct-27-09  RandomVisitor: All, thanks for the support. I am trying to find a way to shorten the posts. I am using a computer program to format the whole-game analysis and I need to make a few more modifications.

  Once: <RV> I find your posts very informative and helpful, and definitely one of the strengths of CG.com.

Sure, they won't appeal to everyone. But then we are all looking for slightly different things from the game and from this site. If someone's main aim is to improve understanding, then they should look for posts with shorter variations and more text. On the other hand, if you want to know the objective truth about a position - ie what should have happened with best play - <RV's> posts are probably the best for doing that.

At the risk of overusing a cliche - "chess is a sea where a gnat may drink and an elephant can bathe".

Oct-28-09  Bdellovibrio: I do appreciate RV's posts, even if I have a little bit of trouble understanding them! Not to be a picky customer, but Rybka's refutations to bad moves would really be a nice edition, although that would increase the length considerably. One question: what does the number to the right of the dash next to the evaluation mean? Example: -.46/<<<18>>> Keep it up Random Visitor!
