|Feb-06-12|| ||wordfunph: nano's fave Scandinavian rules!
again, congrats to <nano> for his 2nd GM scalp, the first was against the late GM Rosendo Balinas.
thanks to <CG> for the game posting.
|Feb-07-12|| ||nanobrain: Thank you CG for including this game here. Everyone should study this masterpiece because it illustrates the principle that when your opponent is busy warding off a possible mating attack, you can relax and go pick some ripe bayabas.|
|Feb-07-12|| ||bubuli55: Congratz Atty! Nice game! I particularly like Ke7, f6, Ne5+ with nice Rs endgame :)|
|Feb-07-12|| ||epistle: anlufet mo sir JAO....tsk!tsk!tsk!
sina simul kami nila GM Wes at AFGM Eugene..... pero ikaw.... ikaw!!! sinaymul mo sila, eto pa ang naging resulta.....walang ganyan sa states.
|Feb-07-12|| ||spawn2: congrats Atty: )|
|Feb-07-12|| ||pulsar: I looked at the game after White's 32nd move, saw Nf4 but didn't analyze further. Later I was surprised to learn that you won the game. Congrats, nice win too!|
|Feb-07-12|| ||Iskubadayb: I'm having a hard time posting once I replay the moves.|
Anyway, 16. Nd2 is a typical Torre move nowadays. At least, that's how i notice it. The younger version would keep the pressure in the center. 16. Bg3 perhaps.
|Feb-07-12|| ||Iskubadayb: 20. Qb5 is a typical simul move. You wanna exchange queens thinking you can outplay the opponent in the endgame. Nano could have taken it then 21... a5 is promising.|
|Feb-07-12|| ||Iskubadayb: Hahaha... 24. Rb5 is a "I have no idea what to do but I don't want to look foolish thinking for so long" move!|
|Feb-07-12|| ||Iskubadayb: I've made a ton of those. :)|
|Feb-07-12|| ||Iskubadayb: Wow, instead of Kf8, 24... cxd followed exchange sac with Rxc4 is quite interesting. Nd5 later on is very strong.|
|Feb-07-12|| ||Iskubadayb: The sac exchange was always there until he played Kd3.|
|Feb-07-12|| ||Iskubadayb: I don't know about 29... Nh5. It allowed the d5 push which is very srong. It also gave legitimacy to the Rook pile up in the b-file. 29... Rd8 is more prudent. I also don't like the black king at e7. He's probably safer at g7.|
|Feb-07-12|| ||Iskubadayb: 32. Ne4? that's the big mistake! Nc4 was his square, preventing Ne5 and targeting the weak b6 pawn.|
|Feb-07-12|| ||Iskubadayb: Hahahaha... nice trap with f6!|
|Feb-07-12|| ||Iskubadayb: Ouch! What was he thinking with 37. Reb1. There was no propects there. Perhaps he was planning on a sac exhange. It is obvious that he completely miss the sac at f3 or he would've played the only move which is Rbb1.|
|Feb-07-12|| ||Iskubadayb: He did miss the f3 sac otherwise he would've retreated the King to c2 and put up a stiffer defense.|
|Feb-07-12|| ||Iskubadayb: Ah, Gatus showed up.
Nice mop up by our counsel. Very well played. :)
|Feb-07-12|| ||Penguincw: 38...Nxf3 is a nice way to net a pawn, in the end.|
|Feb-08-12|| ||bubuli55: Sir Isku. How about 42.Rb7 with the intention of both Rs on 7th rank? |
As in 42.Rb7 Rd4+ 43.Ke2 Rfd3 44.Rh7 =
|Feb-08-12|| ||bubuli55: If 42...Rb4 43.R1xb4 cxb4 44.Rb5 Ke7 |
|Feb-08-12|| ||nanobrain: I think if 42.Rb7 Rxa4, 43.Rh7 Rb4 black has too many pawns.|
|Feb-08-12|| ||nanobrain: <Iskubadayb: 20. Qb5 is a typical simul move. You wanna exchange queens thinking you can outplay the opponent in the endgame. Nano could have taken it then 21... a5 is promising.>|
The reason I didn't capture 20...Qxb5 was because I thought his doubled pawns on the c-file are weak and a capture will undouble it.
|Feb-08-12|| ||fokers13: Isku is right about 20..Qxb5 methinks.If cxb5 then Nd5 and if 22.Ne4 which seems to be the only way to hold the c3 pawn cxd4 cxd4 and Rc4! winning a pawn no matter what.21.axb5 is better ofc but his positional weaknesses remain in that case.Also the exchange sac does seem interesting.However rook endgames are hell to play correctly so let's give the man a pat on the back for winning it and with a nice finishing blow no less:)|
|Feb-08-12|| ||timhortons: gratz atty nano!|
