|Aug-10-09|| ||bright1: Could Sokolov have survived after playing 31 ... Qxa4 ?|
|Aug-11-09|| ||Chicago Chess Man: <bright1> I don't think so. I'm seeing something like 32.Rd4 Qxa2 33. Rd7 with too many threats. And I'm sure Sokolov would have looked at Qxa4 before resigning.|
|Aug-11-09|| ||JointheArmy: Ouch.|
|Aug-11-09|| ||mandy64: <bright> After 31..Qa4 white replies 32.Bb5, attacking the queen and the e-rook|
|Aug-11-09|| ||aragorn69: Impressive play by our very own GM Nigel, again. :-))|
I don't remember seeing someone countering the "Polerio gambit" so effectively since Fischer!
|Aug-12-09|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Blocking the d-pawn with the Bishop has become fashionable of late. 8.Bd3 here, and in the Four Knights, 1.e4,e5; 2.Nf3,Nc6; 3.Nc3,Nf6; 4.Bg5,Bd6. In my time, such moves would have been ridiculed. Chess marches on!|
|Aug-12-09|| ||eainca: If 31....Qa4 then
33.RxR+, RxR or BxR 34.Qf6
37.Qf3 exchange Queens and Bishop with a won end game.
and if 33...KxR 34.Qh8
|Aug-12-09|| ||Eisenheim: whoops! black appears ahead in development and 8 Bd3 looks suffocating, yet NS solidly opened it up, but I would consider the finish a blunder|
|Aug-12-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 8 Bd3?!?!|
|Aug-13-09|| ||eainca: WhiteRook48: 8 Bd3?!?!
There ia more but I'm to lazy to record the rest.
|Aug-17-09|| ||Wolfgang01: Nigel preferes „Short“-games!|
