|May-18-12|| ||beenthere240: Well ...Nb6 -- which had been suggested earlier -- was a nice shot.|
|May-18-12|| ||Natalia Pogonina: <parmetd> As a person who has played over 1000 games with classical time controls, I just don't remember.|
|May-18-12|| ||mastyin: Looks like white has some counter plays now he can pressurise the weak d pawn and finally move his knight to d5 too which is where he wanted it all along.|
|May-18-12|| ||offramp: Thanks! For an idea of the full effect see Nakamura vs Robson, 2012 and some following pages.|
I don't like leaving no comments but sometimes I can't think of anything to say.
|May-18-12|| ||MrSpock: 25. Nd5 and White is back again :-)|
|May-18-12|| ||offramp: <Natalia Pogonina: <parmetd> As a person who has played over 1000 games with classical time controls, I just don't remember.> |
Fischer only played 800.
|May-18-12|| ||Ulhumbrus: Black has won a pawn by means of his queen side attack and White has not even begun a king side attack|
|May-18-12|| ||fearnotofman: <parmetd: Wow after nd5 I really like white (except Gata's clock).>|
After ...Rc5, the a pawn is doomed. Two pawns down for a nice knight on d5? I don't think the compensation is enough. But I'm a really, really crappy chess player, so I could be wrong.
|May-18-12|| ||FSR: <Natalia Pogonina: <Shams> Killing journalists? Whom do you mean?>|
The Bush administration killed a number of journalists, some say deliberately:
<the Bush administration ordered numerous strikes against known media targets. In 2003 alone three such strikes were executed in Baghdad, one targeting Abu Dhabi Television, another hitting the Palestine Hotel -- where correspondents were known to reside -- and a third that struck Al Jazeera’s offices in the Iraqi capital, killing journalist Tariq Ayoub.
While the administration maintained the attacks were not deliberate, Arabs accused Washington of intentionally looking to silence what it saw as negative reporting. “The first objective in launching these strikes,” a colleague of Ayoub’s told Al Jazeera, “is to send the message that those who do not side with [the United States] against Saddam Hussein one hundred percent will be punished.” Ayoub’s father offered another interpretation. The objective behind these targeted killings, he told Al Sahfi.com, “is to eliminate those that can bear witness to crimes committed by U.S. forces in Iraq.”
The most damming evidence, however, was the video provided by the whistleblower site, Wikileaks. It showed an American attack helicopter launching a missile strike against Reuters journalists Namir Noor-Eldeen and Saeed Chmagh in 2007. For many in the Arab world, the images were yet further proof that Washington was indeed targeting the media.> http://newamericamedia.org/2011/08/...
As for Russia:
<In its September 2009 report the Committee to Protect Journalists repeated its conclusion that Russia was one of the deadliest countries in the world for journalists and added that it remains among the worst at solving their murders.> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...
Don't forget our beloved FIDE President:
<Larisa Yudina (November 22, 1945 - June 8, 1998) was a journalist and the editor of the opposition newspaper, Sovietskaya Kalmykia Sevodnya (Soviet Kalmykia Today). She was found dead on 8 June 1998, with multiple knife wounds and a fractured skull, in Elista, the capital of the Republic of Kalmykia.
Prior to her death, she had published articles accusing Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, the president of Kalmykia, of corruption. Three men were convicted in connection with the murder, but the names of those who ordered the killing remain unknown.
Because her newspaper (still run by her widower) is banned in Elista, it is printed elsewhere and collected by car for distribution. It was on her return from one of these trips that she was murdered. Two of the men who confessed to the murder, and were imprisoned, were aides to Kirsan Ilyumzhinov. However, no proof has yet been found that Kirsan himself ordered the crime.> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larisa...

|May-18-12|| ||WBP: I blew it before, and was well-chastised for it. But I'll try again. Can 25 Nd5 be met by 25...Rc2?|
|May-18-12|| ||Natalia Pogonina: 25...a4 was actually an inaccuracy by Naka.|
|May-18-12|| ||Strongest Force: I thought 22...Nc4 was better becase now white has more counter play.|
|May-18-12|| ||Marmot PFL: 25 Nd5 Rc5 26 Ne7+ Kh8 27 Nf5 then Nxh6 or Qg4 and white has counter play.|

|May-18-12|| ||FSR: A knight on the rim is dim [or grim]. A knight on the side cannot abide. A knight on the edge, you get hammered like a sledge.|

just loving white... speedy and deadly attack... and all black pieces ar bad, off sides and not communicating.
|May-18-12|| ||ajile: Nxc3 is good for Black.|
|May-18-12|| ||Shams: A knight on the fringe will make you whinge.|
|May-18-12|| ||Natalia Pogonina: Kamsky missed 25.d5!=. It is easy to criticize players while sitting at home, but it's very hard to play well over the board. That's why, unlike many spectators, I am of a rather high opinion about the Anand-Gelfand match. Yes, it is lacking decisive games, but the quality of the moves made by the players is extremely high.|
|May-18-12|| ||MrSpock: Kamsky looking for complications with 11' on his clock!?|
|May-18-12|| ||The HeavenSmile: 25.Nh2 surely a mistake|
|May-18-12|| ||Marmot PFL: Now (25 Nh2) I would consider 25...f5, not letting white have everything his way on the king side.|
|May-18-12|| ||ChessMan94: Kamsky's clock doesn't look good. Too many moves to go to get out of time trouble and Naka is superb in blitz.|
|May-18-12|| ||thegoodanarchist: <WBP: I blew it before, and was well-chastised for it. But I'll try again. Can 25 Nd5 be met by 25...Rc2?>|
Yes, but 25...Rc5 is rated better by my engine
