|Oct-24-09|| ||luzhin: Surely Cheparinov had to try recapturing on g6 with his Knight: perhaps he had missed the force of 19.Bb3! After 18...Nxg6 19.Qg3 Rxc3! 20.bxc3 Nxe4! Black would have counterplay. Extraordinary how a very strong GM was blown away by such primitive methods--more like a game between 2100 players in a weekend tournament.|
|Oct-24-09|| ||john2629: totally agree.This game looks like an internet game berween 2100 players with an early resign.|
|Oct-24-09|| ||Refused: I dunno, this game looks more like it was over, before it really started.
I just played over that game and have not deeply analyzed it. but after a first glimpse I have really disliked Cheparinov's whole gameplay here.
Esp. 12...Qb6 13...Qa6 simply looks ugly. The queen is so terribly misplaced there. Maybe 12...Nd4 would've been a better choice.
I think by 18...fxg6 black already was in trouble.|
|Oct-26-09|| ||firebyrd: Mig: "Nothing like watching an Englishman trot out the Grand Prix and then a Blunt Force Trauma Attack straight out of the Julian Hodgson handbook. 13.Bd1 14.Rf3 is very classy caveman chess. Black deserved the pain for that spectator queen on a6" <http://www.chessninja.com/dailydirt...;|

|Oct-26-09|| ||ShadowRider: What's wrong with 20... Ke8 ?
What's the continuation for the win ?
|Oct-26-09|| ||tpstar: 20 ... Ke8?! 21. Ba4+ & 22. Bb5 wins the Nd3.
|Nov-01-09|| ||alexrawlings: This game was in Leanord Barden column in the Guardian this weekend. He said that 'White will win with a sacrifice on f6'. Can anyone elaborate on this for me please? What if 20.. Ne5?|
|Nov-01-09|| ||Eyal: <alexrawlings: What if 20.. Ne5?> |
Well, 21.Bxf6 Bxf6 22.Rxf6+ is indeed winning: if 22...exf6 then 23.Qxf6+ Ke8 24.Qe6+ Kf8 (or 24...Kd8 25.Nd5 Rc7 26.Qg8+ Kd7 27.Qg7+ with mate shortly to follow) and here a nice finish would be 25.Qg8+ Ke7 26.Qg7+ Kd8 27.Nd5 Nc6 (defending e7) 28.Ba4! Qxa4 (or 28...b5) 29.Rf1 (now that the black queen doesn't keep an eye on this square anymore). Or else 21...Nxf3 22.Bxe7+ Ke8 23.gxf3, and Black is helpless against a multitude of threats such as Ba4+, Rd1, Nd5, and Qf4-f7+.

|Dec-16-09|| ||kingscrusher: This is a brilliant system for White - underestimated. Here is a reversed idea for Black if White tries the Sicilian in reverse:|

|Mar-27-14|| ||Vogelweide: the pawn on d3 is just a pseudo weakness in these positions. The queen looks at it like a dummy while the rook on H3 3 defends it nicely and also puts preassure against the king... GP Attack is provides nice attacking games, but it scores very bad, if black knows how to use the weaknesses|
