|Jan-16-12|| ||xthred: Would 19...Nf5 have given black a chance?|
|Jan-16-12|| ||Shams: <xthred> Nope-- 20.Qh5 would instantly settle.|
|Jan-16-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Great tactics in this game by White.
|Jan-16-12|| ||FSR: An amazing game <and> an early candidate for Worst Pun.|
|Jan-16-12|| ||Penguincw: It's about time this game received a pun.|
|Jan-16-12|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: I enjoy this chessgame every time that I can see it !!|
|Jan-16-12|| ||ferri1234: what happens if 25 ....Kf8??|

My guess would be 26.dxe6, when Black can hardly expect to survive the pressure on f7.
|Jan-16-12|| ||cydmd: <ferri1234>, White simply puts more pressure with|
And there's no defense against 27.Rxf7+.
If 26... Rg8 then 27.Rxf7+ Nxf7 28.Rxf7+ Ke8 (28... Qxf7 29.Qxf7#) 29.Qxg8#
|Jan-16-12|| ||RestlessLife: fantastic play by white.|
|Jan-16-12|| ||Gilmoy: <Anatoly21: 18.Rf6!! (Two pieces down and moving the rook? Amazing move!)> White did net a pawn, so it's a 5-point "sac" offer, similar to a Rf6 to deflect g7 (or Bg7) outright. The structural pattern is to blockade f7: it (a) cuts the board in half; (b) prevents f5 defending h7.|
Tal vs Leonov, 1949 (a,b)
Fischer vs Benko, 1963 (b)
Anand vs Bareev, 1993 (a)
Rare but known: White is "only" in the Tal/Fischer/Anand class :)
|Jan-16-12|| ||Galaxy7: A remarkable game ! GM Jun doesn't care about anything else other than slashing his opponent's throat ... merciless assassin this Chinese GM !|
|Jan-16-12|| ||cludi: My analysis of this great game
|Jan-16-12|| ||rudiment: 16. Bxd6 ... 17. e5 was a splendid attack. Not sure about all the superlatives being bandied around about this game but it is compelling to watch the perfect exercise of control from Bxd6 onwards.|
|Jan-16-12|| ||drpoundsign: I LIKE the bishop and queen sacs. Good mating net. No mathematical endgames (which give me a headache)|
|Jan-16-12|| ||erniecohen: Actually, I think Black was fine until 15...h5. After 15...e5, he seems to be relatively safe.|
|Jan-16-12|| ||Shams: <erniecohen> 15...e5 16.dxe5 and what's your idea, out of curiosity?|
|Jan-17-12|| ||shivasuri4: <Shams>,that should be followed with 16...dxe5.17.Bxe5 is not good because of 17..Ng4 exploiting the e3 weakness.|
|Jan-17-12|| ||Shams: <shivasuri4> Thanks, it's obvious now that White should not take on e5 even once.|
|Jan-17-12|| ||rilkefan: Interestingly, stockfish likes 16.Nf4 (+1.6) at a depth of 24 (1 Gnode), though given the shifting evaluation at less depth I should let it think a lot longer.|
I then played 16.Bxd6 and let it run 1 Gnode (a depth of 27) and it thinks black is better by -0.7. It's planning on 18.Nf4. I then played up to 18.Ng3. Here it's looking at a perpetual or a slight edge for white after 19.hxg3 f5 (1 Gnode, depth 27). After I played 19.Rf6 it soon (depth of 22) decided white had a sizable advantage (+1) - at 1.5 Gnode (depth 27) it thinks black should play 19...Bxc4 and exchange the white LSB, eval still fluctuating from 1 to 1.7.
At 1.5 Gnode, a depth of 26 (as shown above, not enough at all in this game), it thinks 15...e5 is even, with a main line of 16.Be1 Nh5 17.Ng3 Nf4 18.Nf5 or 16.Nc1 Bxc4 17.de de 18.Qf3 Nd7 or 16.Rf5... After 16.de de 17.Bxe5 it seems to think ...Ng4 is even.
Conclusion: this is a game needing more calculation time than I have patience for or human input above patzer level.
|Jan-17-12|| ||kevin86: The attack is SO strong,that even the queen is expendable.|
|Jan-30-12|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: The moves 16, 19, and 25 are astonishing !!|
|Apr-25-12|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: The moves 16, 19, and 25 are astonishing !!|
|May-08-13|| ||Mudphudder: What about this continuation?
Would this have worked as well?
|May-08-13|| ||Nerwal: <What about this continuation?|

This also wins quite easily. But 24. d5 is stronger. White goes for the throat and black cannot defend his king.
