|Dec-17-09|| ||dumbgai: The mate at the end is too funny.|
|Dec-22-09|| ||pablo333: I have long held the view that white's best method of tackling the 7... Na6 lines is to play 8 Bg5 - placing a firm clamp on the center. I realize that on g5 white's Queen-Bishop would provide a target for the black king-side pawns (h6, g5 etc); but black's Knight on a6 is too far removed from the king-side to offer a threat to the white king in the event of a black pawn storm (Nf6-h5, f5, f4 etc).|
|Dec-22-09|| ||ruinme: At the beginning black seemed so lost.. did black know what he was doing the whole time or just recover brilliantly?|

Really? I thought black was fine the whole way.
|Jan-29-10|| ||stanleys: Very interesting comments by Andrei Terekhov (in Russian,but you could see the lines) on http://online.crestbook.com/vasa/20...|
|Feb-10-10|| ||IvoryKnightAndRook: White plays 10.c5 to guarantee the exchange. After 10...ed 11.Nd5, if black plays 11...c6, white plays Ne7, followed by cd.|
|Feb-11-10|| ||Atking: Thanks <stanleys>. for the site. Reading it I'm asking myself why not 12.c6!? (With Nd5). Could be good for White.|
|Apr-07-10|| ||IvoryKnightAndRook: I play this line as black, so for what it's worth, here's a line for 12. c6!?|
12. c6 Bd5 ed Nc5 cb Nb7 Nd4 Bd4 Bg4 Qe5 =
12. c6 bc! Ne7 Kh8 Ba6 f6 = but black has good play
|Apr-07-10|| ||Riverbeast: I didn't like the entire concept for white
On general principle, Kings Indian players are more than happy to trade the exchange for white's dark squared bishop....Even if he gets less than two pawns for it (which black gets here)
|Aug-26-10|| ||Whitehat1963: Excellent look at the Opening of the Day.|
|Dec-06-10|| ||kingscrusher: This game won the brilliancy prize last year at the London Classic. I have video annotated it here:|
It is a good game for enthusiasts of the Kings Indian Defence to maybe try out Na6 instead of Nc6 in the main line classical variation.
|Dec-09-10|| ||Everett: I'm sure it is not too strong, but I would be tempted to play 15.Bxa6 right away and play to blockade on the light squares on the qside while getting my rooks working on the e-file. Nakamura delays the move and allows black to keep his pawns intact.|
|Dec-06-11|| ||Penguincw: Really nice bishop mate threat.|
|Mar-01-12|| ||sevenseaman: McShane thoroughly understands the mechanics here; c3 is crucial to the B mate threat.|
|Mar-01-12|| ||xthred: <dumbgai> I thought so, too. Mated by a cluster of pawns!|
|Mar-01-12|| ||paavoh: A good pun too.|
|Mar-01-12|| ||whiteshark: <Ezzy: <White has idea's of 17 Nxd4 cxd4 18 Bxg4>> It was also possible to play is immediately with <16.Nxd4 Bxd4 17.Bxg4> e.g. <17...b5 18.Qd1 Bxb2 19.Rb1> |
|Mar-01-12|| ||Penguincw: Three pawns are enough to trap the white king to one square.|
|Mar-01-12|| ||kevin86: A brilliant use of pawns. The triplets trap white's king and allow a lone bishop to mate.|
|Mar-01-12|| ||checkmateyourmove: a perfect pun for the game... !|
|Mar-01-12|| ||Chessmensch: Dear and Glorious Tactician (see http://www.ignatius.com/Products/DG...)|
|Mar-01-12|| ||scormus: That's pretty cool play by Luke. Riding the positional wave like that with faith that his Qside pawns will eventually overwhelm Naka.|
And great pun, fits the game to a t.....
|Mar-01-12|| ||Memethecat: For some reason I misread the score at the beginning, so during the last few moves I was expecting some enormous blunder from black. It seemed inconceivable that he could lose, & he didn't.|
|Mar-01-12|| ||rapidcitychess: I wish that McShane would play full time. He's really great.|
|Mar-19-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: http://www.londonchessclassic.com/2...
This game apparently won the brilliancy prize.
