|Sep-05-11|| ||zb2cr: I do so love delivering a smothered mate on Monday. 20. Qg8+, Rxg8 (unpinning the Knight, as <dzechiel> points out); 21. Nf7#.|
|Sep-05-11|| ||cunctatorg: Is this not the same with the Unzicker vs. Sarapu game, Siegen Ol. 1970?!?!?|
|Sep-05-11|| ||Nightsurfer: <cunctatorg> and <sevenseaman> pp.
Hi, <cunctatorg> and <sevenseaman>, well, that game here <T Peine vs V Budde, Uelzen 1970> may look like a duplicate of Unzicker vs O Sarapu, 1970 , but that game is NOT THE SAME GAME as Unzicker vs O Sarapu, 1970 , that game <T Peine vs V Budde, Uelzen 1970> has been played IN REAL LIFE TOO.|
Since me (who has contributed that game to the data bank), I have a source beyond any doubt, the original issue of the German Schachzeitung dating from that very year when that game here <T Peine vs V Budde, Uelzen 1970> has been played.
Therefore that game here <T Peine vs V Budde, Uelzen 1970> is one more proof that history tends to repeat itself sometimes - be it in real life history (just think of the USA plus Allies <Germany too!!> first heading into the Vietnam desaster and then - having forgotten the bloody mess in 'Nam - heading straight into the bloody mess in Afghanistan!) ... or be it in chess history, just compare <T Peine vs V Budde, halzen 1970> with Unzicker vs O Sarapu, 1970 !
|Sep-05-11|| ||Akavall: Even on a holiday Monday puzzle is a Monday puzzle.|
|Sep-05-11|| ||pogotheclown: Didn't have to think very hard to solve that one. Very sharp game.|
|Sep-05-11|| ||Breunor: If this is a real game (I do believe you, Nightsurfer) then it looks like Thomas Peine was quite a talented player. Budde turns out to be a strong player, and Peine outplayed him here. |
I wonder if he just gave up chess? It seems like a shame.
|Sep-05-11|| ||bachbeet: Sure looks like 20. Ne8 also wins.|
|Sep-05-11|| ||DrMAL: A puzzle at move 19 for white (or, even better, at move 18 or even move 17) would have been a bit more interesting.|
|Sep-05-11|| ||bachbeet: Sorry, totally didn't see the N was pinned.|
|Sep-05-11|| ||FSR: Having some experience with this line, see F Rhine vs D Sprenkle, 1981, I was going to note the extraordinary resemblance between this game and Unzicker-Sarapu, but I see that others have beaten me to it.|
|Sep-05-11|| ||MaczynskiPratten: I wonder which was played first of the 2 games. Looks like either Unzicker or Peine might have seen the other game and thought "this looks a nice idea" and both opponents obligingly fell into the trap! Maybe both had the same oh-so-natural hallucination, "Aha! there's no smothered mate on because I have his knight pinned".... They obviously had not done their homework as well as White.|
It's all down to move order; just reverse Black's moves 16 and 17 and Bf4 no longer works as White's knight is not at d6. However, as proved by <FSR>, even this is inadequate; but White has to work a lot harder (and produce an anthology game) to win it!
|Sep-05-11|| ||MaczynskiPratten: That being said, sometimes doing your homework and reading up the journals is not enough ... see the sad case of A Zapata vs Anand, 1988 and Miles vs Christiansen, 1987.|
|Sep-05-11|| ||perfidious: Nuff ced!
The ability to think critically far outweighs merely swotting up the latest journal.
|Sep-05-11|| ||M.Hassan: "Very Easy" White to play 20?
White is a pawn up
Queen sac pays and mates:
Looks like we have had this puzzle before
|Sep-05-11|| ||FSR: <perfidious: Nuff ced!
The ability to think critically far outweighs merely swotting up the latest journal.>
Quite so. Anand was negligent in not looking more closely before playing ...Bf5, as were the Informant editors in mentioning Miles-Christiansen without comment. Tal in his autobiography told a funny story about reading the latest chess magazine in his bath, and seeing an article about some opening variation. Black had done well in the games on that page, so Tal proceeded to play the line in his next game. However, he had not read the next page, which read something like, "However, Black has fared poorly when White plays ..." Of course his opponent had read the same article - in its entirety - played the recommended move, and rolled Tal.
|Sep-05-11|| ||DarthStapler: Got it easily|
|Sep-06-11|| ||perfidious: <FSR: <perfidious: ....The ability to think critically far outweighs merely swotting up the latest journal.>
In my junior days, I got a hard lesson in trusting in myself rather than following the recommendation of another.
|Sep-06-11|| ||Nightsurfer: We have to thank Vladimir Budde that he has actively helped to compose that funny little mate.|
Therefore the publication of that entertaining BLITZING BUDDE ON THE BOARD has been kind of PAYING REVERENCE to the creative FM Vladimir Budde.
An act of paying reverence that has been overdue - since today I have the sad duty to communicate the sudden and unexpected passing away of FM Vladimir Budde at age 58 on August 8th, 2011 at Aachen, Germany.
Vladimir Budde has won the Open Championship of The Netherlands at Dieren in 1983. He has played in the German Federal League, 1st and 2nd Division. He has published several books on chess. By turning to Vladimir Budde's biography at Wikipedia, you will find a list of his publications: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vladim...
Last not least: at Uelzen 1970 where this miniature <T Peine vs V Budde > has been battled out, Vladimir Peine has reached position no. 7 behind his NEMESIS T. Peine (no. 6), herewith the final ranking: http://teleschach.com/dsj/dsj-dm70w...
Not enough with that: Vladimir Budde was one of the pioneers of introducing Chinese Chess "XiangQi" to Germany. He has published a German language manual on Chinese Chess: "Chinesisches Schach. Spiel-Mythos-Kultur ", Beyer Edition, Hollfeld 1985.
Vladimir Budde was not only a chess player and author, but a popular chess teacher as well.
Herewith a German-language epitaph that has been published on the website of the "Schachverein Wuerselen 1926 e. V.", the last club of the late Vladimir Budde: http://schachverein-wuerselen.de/in...
|Sep-06-11|| ||Nightsurfer: Vladimir Budde's defeat is no case for being ashamed of that. Since Vladimir Budde - who was a very popular chess teacher parallel to his career as a chess professional - has helped to compose a check-mate that belongs to the classic constellations on the board: the basic version no. 2 of the dreaded SMOTHERED MATE, please compare the corresponding (German-language) publication http://www.chessbase.de/nachrichten... that has put that very game here <T Peine vs V Budde, Uelzen 1970 > in the right historic perspective.|
|Sep-06-11|| ||kevin86: This one is easy! Just replace the bishop with Nh6 and you have Philador's Legacy-the Smothered Mate.|
The text is a good modification of PL.
20♕g8+ ♖xg8 21 ♘f7#
|Sep-06-11|| ||Nightsurfer: This game here < T Peine vs V Budde, Uelzen 1970 > is the neo-classic replay of VERSION NO. 2 of the GREAT SMOTHERED MATE, the deadly strike by task-force of Queen and Knight plus Back-up Bishop.|
The neo-classic replay of the basic VERSION No. 1 of the GREAT SMOTHERED MATE - that is to say: the notorious killer by task-force of Queen and Knight - has been demonstrated one year after this game here < T Peine vs V Budde, Uelzen 1970 > , namely in B Koester vs R Gralla, 1971 .
One more modern replay of the basic VERSION No. 1 of the GREAT SMOTHERED MATE (the unstoppable duo of Queen & Horse) has been put on the board in S Duron Godoy vs V Garcia Castro, 2004 , 33 years after B Koester vs R Gralla, 1971 and 34 years after this game here < T Peine vs V Budde, Uelzen 1970 > .
A friend of mine - the young and bright Hamburg-based player < Jamshid Atri > uses to say: "You HAVE to READ THE BOOKS!"
Jamshid Atri is right!
|Sep-07-11|| ||Nightsurfer: Putting this game here <T Peine vs V Budde, Uelzen 1970> in the right historic perspective it is interesting to note that the final execution by Horse - after the sacrifice of the Queen that has been backed up by a Bishop - is the replay of a very early version of the GREAT SMOTHERED MATE that has been put on the board at the beginning of the 17th century: NN vs Greco, 1620 |
That is the amazing thing about chess - the Great Masters from the past are watching from Heaven whilst you are pondering your next move!
And in a lucky moment - when they think that you deserve it! - they will inspire you ... as it has been the case with regard to <T Peine > who has composed again the finish of NN vs Greco, 1620!
|Nov-24-14|| ||Nightsurfer: The motives of checkmates seem to be an endless chain of replays. The matrix of that very type of smothered checkmate in this game here <Thomas Peine vs Vladimir Budde (1970)>, namely because of the friendly support by a Bishop that pushes his Queen to the square of decision ... - <19.Qxf7+ Kh8 20.Qg8+!! Rxg8 21.Nf7#> and <1-0> - , is the same motive that has been demonstrated 24 years later once more again as being the climax of the game H Pohlenz vs M Pinel, 1994 !|
|Dec-31-15|| ||perfidious: <FSR....Tal in his autobiography told a funny story about reading the latest chess magazine in his bath, and seeing an article about some opening variation. Black had done well in the games on that page, so Tal proceeded to play the line in his next game. However, he had not read the next page, which read something like, "However, Black has fared poorly when White plays ..." Of course his opponent had read the same article - in its entirety - played the recommended move, and rolled Tal.>|
The tables were turned this time round, as Tal's opponent saw, shall we say, one move farther this once.
Who other than Tal of the greats would have written thus of his gaffe?
For all his failings, Tal was one of the most beloved champions. We shall never see his like again.
