|Jan-07-10|| ||BISHOP TAL: (dagwood2005)New ideas are good as well as suprises. Makes the game more exciting.Look back to skara 1980 Tony Miles plays a6 as his 1st move against then WC Karpov.They audiance was makin schoolboy jokes about Miles play.score was 0-1.The open affected karpov both mentally as well as taking opening theory out of the game, a big strength in karpovs play.|
|Jan-09-10|| ||KingG: <Caissanist> 4.g4 is a known gambit in the English opening, that most often occurs via the move order 1.c4 Nf6 2.Nc3 e6 3.Nf3 Bb4 4.g4!?, Opening Explorer.|
You can see a few White wins in this Game Collection: Zviagintsev-Krasenkow Attack. I haven't yet played this gambit, but it certainly looks interesting.
|Jan-12-10|| ||Caissanist: <KingG> thanks much. The lopsided winning percentage for white certainly seems impressive.|

Let's not shun Moro on his creative play. In today's time, individuals are pressured into playing theoretically sound developments due to it's low percentage in error and criticism...However, this is probably why Fischer created FischerRandom chess. He probably didn't like following everyone's ideas and wanted to rely mainly on the creative aspects of the game...Just imagine if everyone played it safe and there were no veering from theory, it'll be dull as in the dogmatic and solid era that Tarrasch and many others led. So in essence, Moro could be looked UP to as a pioneer of ideas along with all other unorthodox players in the modern era. They're probably unconsciously leading to an era of differentiation, from what's now known as the <Modern Era>
Also, it's nice to see that there is error even in solid, sound play...Most of the ideas in theoretical soundness only apply to natural scenarios...If one attacks, then defend; To attack what is defended, attack the defender; However, in totally complex situations that are unreadable, or take a VERY LONG time to analyze, who is to say this approach of typicality is the way of doing so...I've seen games where things were so solid on both sides, that both in some cases, had to sac pieces to create dynamic opportunities within the position..So to say, honestly that the known ideas thus far are concrete is to be an overstatement.
There was this interesting book I read, that I was kinda thrown off by strictly by it's title...Chess For Zebras...I thought it was a book for little kids or something BUT do to my **known way of looking at things** If I hadn't opened up the book, I wouldn't have ever known of it's very in depth reading, or so I took it...In the book Rowson, I believe his name was, told of many stories and the such that are so vast with ideas that I can't tell you in one post. However, this one statement stood out with me stating, "In my teaching of adult players, they often come to me with means of improving. We go about teaching them the things they need to learn as they are developing as chess players...I'd think, referring to Rowson "Great, I'm done" And a week or two later they come back to me with the same problems..." He often figured the reasons to why they continued on with the same mistakes were their <solidified views>...And to make a long story short, any thing you've learned thus far from chess, unlearn it and relearn it with a fresh eye...This is what I got from his book ^_^
Go Moro! **cough** =P
|Feb-05-10|| ||DirtyJs: hey guys, I'm new here
I play a little bit of chess for fun, nothing serious
about 21. can anyone tell me what's wrong with 21.Qf5? I didn't see anyone discuss this move so I'm not sure if it was overlooked or there's something wrong with it that I can't see. From what I can see, it's quite playable
|Feb-05-10|| ||hms123: <DirtyJs> Try <21...Qc7>

with the threat of Rxc1+.
|Feb-05-10|| ||Riverbeast: It's one thing to play creatively, it's another thing to go completely overboard and skirt practically every rule of proper chess|
This is 'funk for funk's sake'....Maybe Morozevich is trying too hard to live up to his reputation, which may explain his bad results of late
|Apr-04-10|| ||Nyctalop: Moro would have won this if he wasn't playing White. The extra tempo always puts him in a bad position.|
|Apr-04-10|| ||Notagm: What's wrong with 20. Qxb4?|
|May-25-13|| ||Xeroxx: good game.|
|May-30-13|| ||engineerX: Papaioannou loves placing his knights on d3 with white and d6 with black. In this game he played 8...Nd6 and 21...Nd6 with a different knight each time.|
|May-31-13|| ||shivasuri4: <Notagm>, 20.Qxb4 would perhaps have been replied with the simple Nxg5, leaving Black with a healthy edge.|
|May-31-13|| ||whiteshark: You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept to...|
|May-31-13|| ||Abdel Irada: <whiteshark: You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet...>|
You will have great difficulty walking.
|May-31-13|| ||Abdel Irada: In which White, having cleverly taken a pawn on h7 with check, wishes with his whole heart to return it.|
|May-31-13|| ||psmith: <DirtyJs> 21.Qf5 Qc7 and Black has too many threats.|
|May-31-13|| ||The Last Straw: After 21.♖f5? black's tactics come in: 21...♘d6! 22.♕d3 ♖xe3! 23.dxe3 ♕xf5 |
|May-31-13|| ||psmith: <computer chess guy>: You mixed up Black and White in your notation (move numbering), and you mean 25... Nxf2 not 25... Nxb2.
Anyway, it would help to explain... after the sequence 21. Rh5 g6 22. Qxb4 gxh5 23. d3, the immediate 23... Qh3+ 24. Ke1 Nxf2 doesn't work because White can get his Queen to f4 to defend h2 (e.g. 24. Qd4+! Kxh7 25.Qf4 -- another subtlety -- the point of Qd4+ first is that now 25... Ng4 would be met by Qxf7+ winning, whereas if immediately 24. Qf4 Black could play 24... Ng4 with some plus). The point of 23... a5! is then to distract the Queen from the fourth rank...|
|May-31-13|| ||kevin86: It looks as if a mate is in the offing.|
|May-31-13|| ||jakaiden: Now I am in the mood to hear some James Brown.|
|May-31-13|| ||JustWoodshifting: Good analysis of this game by Ftacnik in Chessbase (as A17).|
|May-31-13|| ||EvilTwin: weird game|
|May-31-13|| ||Octal: Looks like the Grob's.|
|May-31-13|| ||dagwood2005: (BISHOP TAL) Agree with your comment. And Morozevich is one of my favorite players---but to me it didn't look like he gave his opponent enough credit here.|
Not to mention the fact that he played this way at a team event against a team with much lower rated players. IMHO, he had a responsibility to play solidly in a situation like this---leave the wild/creative stuff for must-win situations or individual events.
