|Mar-26-12|| ||rilkefan: <hellopolgar> - thanks for the link, mostly. Have submitted a correction slip.|
|Mar-26-12|| ||Tired Tim: <hellopolgar> Many thanks for the explanation ... good grief... Reuben Fine would have had a field day|
|Mar-26-12|| ||sevenseaman: Seeing what Black planned to do with it, 9... Ne5 was quite unnecessary.|
20. Qc3 is masterly making dxe6 playable leading to an inexorable White attack to the finish.
White's moves 23 to the finish could make a good puzzle, perhaps a Thursday.
|Mar-26-12|| ||thegoldenband: I wondered whether Black might try to bail out with 21...Bxg2+ 22. Kxg2 Qc6+, but it looks like 23. Qxc6 dxc6 24. Ng7+ gets very grim very quickly.|
|Mar-26-12|| ||HeMateMe: Nice attack. The pun is horrible.|
|Mar-26-12|| ||whiteshark: <"Xtreme Chess"> It is simply the old hiding under the cloak of the new.|
|Mar-26-12|| ||srag: Well, after 11 movements the black side has two pieces in play and did not castle; there are five white pieces in play, the white side have castled and there is a white pawn in the fourth line.|
|Mar-26-12|| ||kellmano: This kind of 'project' irritates me. Too often people think if you say something, you make it so. Like an employer who rattles on about 'community spirit' of an organisation when there clearly is none.|
Taking a picture of a conventionally good looking woman next to a chess board is an odd idea. It misses the point. You could make absolutely anything 'sexy' in that way, but if you have ever been to a chess tournament you would know that the proportion of conventionally good looking people is lower than in the general population.
|Mar-26-12|| ||Abdooss: Where's the 'LIKE' button for this game?|
|Mar-26-12|| ||JonathanJ: <kellmano> completely true.|
|Mar-26-12|| ||Penguincw: I saw the game a few weeks ago. http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...|
|Mar-26-12|| ||JohnBoy: The European Chess Federation recently banned cleavage at tournaments as a distraction. I don't get the "Extreme" bit - how does lowering quality of play make the game more inviting? The point, to almost all chess players, is the discover of and adherence to the truth of positions - not who is packing C-cups.|
|Mar-26-12|| ||parmetd: The extreme bit is the shahade poor attempt to make chess appealing to the public through tv by using models, short time controls, young players and single elimination, and bad marketing lingo. It might be the single worst attempt at helping chess of all time. Chess may be hurt unreparably but what else is new. If you tell a person that they can personally profit in some way, they do not care what damage they unleash.|
|Mar-26-12|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Elliott Liu is a good player, according to USCF he is currently around 2350.|
|Mar-26-12|| ||kevin86: LIU-sanity!|
|Mar-26-12|| ||Tired Tim: <"The European Chess Federation recently banned cleavage at tournaments as a distraction."> is this defined further? I note they still admit males with an ample posterior and low hung jeans.|
|Mar-26-12|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: @<TiredTim>
the ladies are allowed to have one or two blouse buttons undone but no more and their skirts are only allowed to be a certain length above their knees (no 1960s minis).
So, in the new dress code
<good, Natalia> (aka "Mrs. Grischuk")
|Mar-26-12|| ||hellopolgar: 13. Nd5 is a blunder. black should have simply captured the knight with 13. ... exd5. according to my engine of course.|
|Mar-26-12|| ||HeMateMe: <Simon> I want the BAD Natalie! If she had played on my college team, more guys would have taken up chess...|
|Mar-26-12|| ||MichaelJHuman: Truth is stanger than fiction has once again been proven (this from reading a link someone posted.)|
As for cleavage in chess, I am all for attactive women showing off their finer points, so to speak.
But maybe there's a point where good taste needs to be taken into account :)
|Mar-26-12|| ||HeMateMe: There's nothing wrong with breats being bared in a tasteful manner.|
|Mar-26-12|| ||chessgames.com: <Abdooss: Where's the 'LIKE' button for this game?> Around here, we use game collections as our "like button". See Chessgames Help for more info.|
|Mar-26-12|| ||jovack: Grandmasters give each other way too much credit... I'm looking at move 13 and I would take with the pawn for sure... white has strong counterplay for the piece.. though for black I'd go king to d8 then not sure, i need to reinstall my chess engine to check it but I think black could win it with a bit of defending and be up by far after he develops carefully|
|Mar-28-12|| ||LIFE Master AJ: <jovack> [RR13...exd5 14.exd5 Kd8 15.Nb3 Rc8 16.Rd2 h5 17.Bg5 f6 18.Be3 Qc7 19.Bf4 d6 20.Nd4 Bxd5 21.Ne6+ Bxe6 22.Rxe6 Ke8 23.Bxd6 Qc6 24.Re4 Kf7 25.h4 a5; ] - Fritz 13|
