|May-11-12|| ||talisman: well let's see...FIRST!|
|May-11-12|| ||tpstar: The second live event in one day?
We are spoiled! =)
|May-11-12|| ||whiteshark: The third time is the charm.|
|May-11-12|| ||Sneaky: 5.f3 "Here you go bishop boy, chew on some granite."|
|May-11-12|| ||chessgames.com: Hi folks: Just to warn you, we're going to be testing some software during this broadcast. |
We don't anticipate anything to go wrong, but just in case you see something abnormal, don't be concerned: it's just the elves at work.
|May-11-12|| ||karnak64: What an interesting start!|
|May-11-12|| ||whiteshark: <6...f5> is so far unknown (TN) in the database: Opening Explorer|
|May-11-12|| ||Stonehenge: Here's a game with 7...fxe4
Akesson, Ralf (2470)
Kislik, Erik (2329)
Event: 21st Czech GM Open
Site: Pardubice CZE
ECO: A40 Queen's pawn, Keres defence
1. d4 e6 2. c4 b6 3. e4 Bb7 4. Nc3 Bb4 5. f3 Ne7 6. Bd3 f5 7. Nge2 <fxe4> 8. fxe4 O-O 9. Be3 e5 10. d5 d6 11. a3 Bc5 12. Qd2 Nd7 13. O-O-O a5 14. Bc2 1/2-1/2
|May-11-12|| ||capafan: Black is determined to open up the lines for his LSB...a test of White's f3.|
|May-11-12|| ||chuter09: Nakamura keeping it fresh and very interesting.|
|May-11-12|| ||SteinitzLives: Naka has equalized already, and there are some natural looking moves for white that could go wrong; still it's anyones' game.|
|May-11-12|| ||Strongest Force: So far, in this event, Nak is playing with amazing confidence. This tells me he has been hitting the books.|
|May-11-12|| ||Strongest Force: Interesting after Qh4 Bf2 Rxf2|
|May-11-12|| ||haydn20: Very interesting after 15...a5--Black has chances on both wings. I thought 7. Nge2 was passive, maybe 7. Bg5 is more active.|
|May-11-12|| ||haydn20: Will he commit with 16....a4.|
|May-11-12|| ||chessgames.com: Sorry to interrupt the chess, but we're having great fun over here testing our new mobile software, and if you have a smart phone you're invited to join us. We've been testing on Androids and iPhones but just about any smart phone should work. (If yours doesn't, we'd like to know about it.)|
All you have to do is visit this page from a mobile phone right now. To make it even easier to get here, we've added a special mobile-shortcut:
The "l" stands for "live."
On the mobile phone version the diagram should consume the entire viewing area, the idea being that you can see the current board position any time you like by glancing at your phone. Scroll down for the comments, which will be shown in a more compact format for mobile users.
Just in case you find yourself stuck with the mobile version when you want the full version, there is a link near the bottom <Disable mobile enhanced version.> Likewise, if you have disabled the mobile version and want it back, we have a link <Enable mobile enhanced version.> Note that you should only see these links from the live page when you are actually in fact using a mobile phone.
If you really don't like the mobile version, no problem: you can disable it from your Chessgames Preferences Page by clicking on the option <Disable mobile features (even on mobile devices)>.
|May-11-12|| ||beenthere240: Cool! It's working on my Android! I saw 17. Nf5 before it came up on my computer screen!|
|May-11-12|| ||MarkFinan: <chessgames> It's all good on my little phone :)..|
Anyway, whats wrong with running that h pawn up the board, looks ok right now to me!
|May-11-12|| ||MarkFinan: Well!! Obvously not now, but I'd have exchanged that DSB for the Knight on c5 first, to open up that 3rd rank for the Queen to swing over...
Now it's looking a bit more lively though...|
|May-11-12|| ||Strongest Force: Seems like white needs to find the right moves for a while.|
|May-11-12|| ||haydn20: Naka gets really aggressive with 17...Ncxe4 and Nxf5.|
|May-11-12|| ||haydn20: 23. d6 and get out the mustard for some tasty pawns.|
|May-11-12|| ||haydn20: I meant 23....d6 OC.|
|May-11-12|| ||DanielBryant: <chessgames> Thanks for letting me know. It'll help me be all the more unproductive at work :)|
|May-11-12|| ||Sneaky: I like the little radio tower on the mobile header. It makes me feel like I'm getting important transmissions from some shadowy powerful organization.|
