|Jun-30-09|| ||Poisonpawns: Very exciting game! However white was too greedy,and he met the same fate as Bernie Madoff.|
|Jun-30-09|| ||Ezzy: Junior totally disregards material and produces a stunning attack. Most computers will see a big plus for white during the game, until it takes a while to see that black's attack is unstoppable. Unbelievable game!!|
|Jun-30-09|| ||Notagm: I don't see the finish.|
|Jun-30-09|| ||Notagm: Now I see it. After 52. Rxf2, 52... g2, so that if 53. Rxg2, 53... Nf3 ch, forking King & Queen.|
|Jun-30-09|| ||computer chess guy: 43. f3 looks questionable, but the following attack is very hard to foresee. 44. .. ♘h5! and 45. .. g3! are very strong.|
|Jun-30-09|| ||Dr. Funkenstein: This is a scary game because it appears to combine something dangerously close to intuition with brutal calculating skills.|
Notagm: your line allows 53. Rf7+ which leads to 54. Qxg2
I think better is 52. Rxf2 gxf2+ and if 53. Qxf2 then Nf3+ wins the queen leaving black with a queen and dangerous passed pawn v bishop and rook
If 53. Kxf2 then 53... Qh2+ when 54. Ke1 Nf3+ leads to the above and 54. Ke3 Qh6+ again wins the queen
|Jun-30-09|| ||Dr. Funkenstein: sorry, forgot also to mention white's other alternative after 52. ...gxf2+ which is 53. Kf1 Qh1+ 54. Kxf2 Qh2+ and we are back into my last line above|

|Jul-01-09|| ||HeMateMe: After defending this one, as white, I'd have to have a few beers, to calm my nerves.|
|Jul-01-09|| ||arsen387: the pawn on d3 is a real bone in white's throat, this one looked more like a Topalov attack than a computer stuff, just great|
|Jul-01-09|| ||Notagm: Blacks two Knights had an unshakable grip on the centre and King side, about which White was not able to do anything. It just shows how far ahead Junior can think, and how it is able to evaluate positional vs material considerations.|
|Jul-01-09|| ||WhiteRook48: no, it looked like an Alekhine attack|

No, if 52...g2 53.Rf7+ and 54.Qxg2.
See <Dr. Funkenstein's> post.
Amazing game really. With white's material advantage you always felt it could weather the storm and come out on top but the knights and pawns cramped white up and didn't allow white to coordinate its pieces properly to defend.
|Jul-06-11|| ||checkmateyourmove: ive never seen an attack like this ending with 2 knights and a queen slowly improving its position. it almost was like an untouchable fortress going forward.|
|Nov-01-12|| ||SChesshevsky: Really interesting was the way Black played the passed d-pawn I thought.|
He (it) gets it at 4...exd4 then advances it at 17...d3 and leaves it as a threat and overprotects it and freezes the Bishop in an awkward square rather than trying to push it for the rest of the game.
Seems like a pretty deep positional plan.
