|May-20-12|| ||backrank: What a hurricane of an attack ...
While looking rather obvious, this had to be calculated till the end.
The beautiful silent move 29. g3!! tightens the mating net around the black king.
Black loses in the most brilliant fashion now; his undeveloped pieces on the Queen's wing serve but as spectators to the drama ...
The (passive) Queen sac 30. Ne5++!! is stunning.
|Jan-22-16|| ||Phony Benoni: This was the US Open where the brilliant game Reshevsky vs A Vasconcellos, 1944 was played, which would tend to overshadow anything else that happened in the tournament.|
This game deserves a better fate. Spectacular to the max, even before the finish.
|Jan-22-16|| ||thegoodanarchist: "Here I am
Rock you like a hurricane"
These are lyrics to an American rock song which received wide radio play, but IMO was not good enough for me to learn the band's name, nor the song's name.
To this day, I don't know the band name, nor the song name, and don't really feel bad about that.
|Jan-22-16|| ||thegoodanarchist: <Phony Benoni Baloney>: TYVM for the link to the Reshevsky game.|
|Jan-22-16|| ||bengalcat47: Nice example of a King-hunt.|
|Jan-22-16|| ||thegoodanarchist: White loses his queen but wins Black's king :)|
|Jan-22-16|| ||lost in space: <tga>: Scorpions
|Jan-22-16|| ||mike1: think the "pun" is more likely from:
The Scorpions are from Germany, by the way.
|Jan-22-16|| ||paavoh: The white attack was spectacular, I admit, but didn't Black put himself in a tight spot by playing 5. -e6 so soon?
No easy way to complete development of his pieces and control a bit of the center with his pawns.|
|Jan-22-16|| ||paavoh: @mike1: My thoughts too: "...and I'm getting blown away..."|
|Jan-22-16|| ||erimiro1: Neil Young's "Like a Hurricane".BTW, Young is Canadian.|
|Jan-22-16|| ||goodevans: I do like the way white's light squared bishop sits there doing nothing all game until it gets to deliver the final blow.|
|Jan-22-16|| ||kevin86: The attack was so strong that even the queen was expendable.|
|Jan-22-16|| ||scutigera: Three Steins at one table -- no wonder Black got blitzed.|
