|Jul-27-10|| ||estrick: <Once>
Don't know if I ever thought about this before, but can you imagine being cooped up inside a tight space with 30 - 40 other sweaty blokes without proper ventilation, or water, and nobody can piss, crap, sneeze, cough, or even move if it jostles their weapons and armor, for up to 20 hours? Sure hope it wasn't summer time. Late fall would have made it a bit more bearable.
Also, Paikidze is just a 17 year old girl from one of the former Soviet Republics. Someone should get her to choose another way to Romanize the spelling of her first name.
|Jul-27-10|| ||jimmyjimmy: I have correctly answered two in a row.That is unusual for me. Someone said black is played by a woman. That is an odd name for a lady. I think I would definitely change it to Naomi, or anything similar. It is not unlike Johnny Cash singing about "A Boy Named Sue."|
|Jul-27-10|| ||beenthere240: <CarlG> that's what I was thinking. The rook can't be taken -- but it doesn't have to be either. White might even throw in an annoying move like 22. Bxf7+ , followed by 23. Qg3.|
|Jul-27-10|| ||Jesspatrick: 22.Bxg5? was a great way to ruin a perfectly fine position.|
|Jul-27-10|| ||kevin86: A monday-type on Tuesday. Whichever way white takes still adds up to mate on h2,Oh!|
|Jul-27-10|| ||randomsac: A discovered mate-in-one with check. Very nifty stuff.|
|Jul-27-10|| ||BOSTER: <Once> <the position after ...Bd8> what supposed to be Rd8. <rook swinger on a3> you means h6.
Be careful, I read your comments.|
|Jul-27-10|| ||chrisowen: A Betenoires fix Bxg5 being Goluch's crutch after Nf3+. White pack it in Nazi regale clawing back gains sets trap 21..Qc7. Boot black beast nice gel in long diagonal b8-h4. Bandmaster rook rules frankly Piotr go balls up.|
|Jul-27-10|| ||asiduodiego: 22. ..., Nf3+! . Pretty straight forward|
|Jul-27-10|| ||apexin: Black to play
P Goluch vs N Paikidze
See game for solution.
22..Nf3+ 23.Qxf3 Qxh2#
|Jul-27-10|| ||MARCOZY79: I believe a name says a lot about the player in this case I think it makes a strong statement.She can play chess!!|
|Jul-27-10|| ||thegoodanarchist: White got carried away. 22 Ng3 seems good to me, although Black's lead in development might be worth the pawn.|
|Jul-27-10|| ||YouRang: Pretty easy once you see the queen's mating angle on h2, combined with the h6 rook also hitting h2. |
We just have to get the knight out of the way of our queen in a forcing manner so that white doesn't have time to play a defensive move like Bxh6. There isn't much you can do that's more forcing than check, so 22...Nf3+ settles it.
|Jul-27-10|| ||Once: <BOSTER> Ah, yes, well spotted, hmm, sorry 'bout dat.|
In my defence it was before 6:00 in the morning when I typed it...
|Jul-27-10|| ||Once: <estrick> Very good point. And what if the Trojans, instead of taking the horse inside their city, had decided to use it as a centre-piece for a bonfire? Not so clever now, are you, Mr Odysseus? |
And from this story depends so much of human civilization. The last year of the war forms the Illiad. Odysseus goes on after the sack of Troy to endure his Odyssey. Even the Romans reckoned that the fleeing Trojans founded the Roman empire, as told in the Aeneid. And there you have a large chunk of both Greek and Roman civilization.
And all because of a beautiful woman -Helen whose face launched a thousand ships.
Can't live with 'em, can't establish a mighty empire without 'em...
|Jul-27-10|| ||jussu: [yaaaawn] Is it still monday?|
|Jul-27-10|| ||al wazir: <Chessgames.com> puzzles often turn up six months or so later as "games of the day," embellished by a pun. Usually the pun is based on the name of one of the players.|
No prizes for guessing what the pun will be when this game gets its turn.
|Jul-27-10|| ||rapidcitychess: Black to play
P Goluch vs N Paikidze, 2010
One-movers bore me these days.
|Jul-27-10|| ||Patriot: 22...Nf3+ wins instantly. 23.gxf3/Qxf3 Qxh2# or 23.Kh1 Rxh2#.|
|Jul-27-10|| ||Once: <al wazir: No prizes for guessing what the pun will be when this game gets its turn.>|
|Jul-27-10|| ||muralman: Wasn't around Monday. That's alright because this is Monday like.|
|Jul-27-10|| ||gawain: Seeing that 22...Nf3+ wins is easy. I'm finding it harder to figure out how the players got into this odd position!|
|Jul-27-10|| ||blair45: The lesson to be learned is the primacy of check. The position seems complicated until one realizes that White has to answer 22. ...Nf3ch. before any other play -- and there is no answer to 22. ...Nf3ch.|
|Jul-27-10|| ||wals: On a scale of 1 to 10 I rated -10.
White rated worse with the move,22.Rxg5, (-#2). Rd1 would have sufficed.
|May-12-11|| ||FSR: You've heard of the Evergreen Partie? This is the Nazi Partie.|
