|Sep-06-13|| ||tamar: That King is doing wind sprints.|
|Sep-07-13|| ||malkabir: To h6ll and back|
|Sep-07-13|| ||Xeroxx: what the truck|
|Sep-07-13|| ||Nezhmetdinov: That is brilliant, so glad that Cheparinov won a game and glad that it appeared to happen in the Bizarro universe.|
|Sep-07-13|| ||Skakalec: Actually , after 32...Nf3+ white king walks again to h6! :-)|
|Sep-08-13|| ||Revenant: I love this game. It shows what chess is all about, taking risks and having fun.|
Stockfish agrees that 16. g4! was the best move on the board. It also approves of the forcing sequence that followed, up until black's understandable mistake 22... Rd1+?! (just one move too early).
22... fxg6 would have kept the balance. Note that black is threatening ...Qxf2#. White's critical response is 23. Nf4 (piling up on g6), and now 23... Rd1+ is correct:
a) If 24. Ke2, the pv is 24... Re1+ 25. Kd2 Rd8+ 26. Kc3 Nxa1 27. Rxg6+ Qxg6 28. Nxg6 Rxc1+ 29. Kb4 Rd4+ 30. Ka3 (of course not 30. Ka5?? Rc5#) 30... Nc2+ 31. Kb3 Na1+ and the knight-checks give black a draw by repetition.
b) If 24. Kg2, play might continue 24... Qe4+ 25. f3 Ne1+ 26. Kg3 Rd3 27. Rxg6+ Qxg6+ 28. Nxg6 Rfxf3+ 29. Kg4 Rxh3. Both sides are walking a tightrope, but it comes out even, according to the computer.
|Sep-08-13|| ||whiteshark: <23... fxg6!> would have kept Black alive.|
|Sep-09-13|| ||waustad: This is what sometimes happens when two aggressive creative players get together. I've always heard about Cheparinov's opening ideas and Sutovsky's hyper-aggressive play. The result was a delightful game.|
|Sep-10-13|| ||apanadsky: a brave King!|
|Sep-26-13|| ||Domdaniel: This is an incredible game: the sort of tactical sequence that 'ordinary' players just don't consider. Even ordinary GMs.|
|Sep-26-13|| ||Domdaniel: 16.g4 is certainly striking, but White probably needs to have planned it earlier ... maybe even when playing 12.Qh3. Otherwise, Black would gain an advantage with ...Nb4.|
|Aug-26-14|| ||HeMateMe: nice king chase. When the music stops, Sutovsky doesn't have a chair to sit on.|
|Aug-26-14|| ||Once: And you can't mention this game without thinking of ...|
Short vs Timman, 1991
Both great games. But not a tactic to try at home, at least until more of the pieces are off the board.
|Aug-26-14|| ||ColeTrane: <once> true dat|
|Aug-26-14|| ||belgradegambit: This game is like a mirror image of another Cheparinov brilliancy where he makes his opponent go on a very, very long walk J Ivanov vs I Cheparinov, 2004|
|Aug-26-14|| ||paavoh: Yay, my pun was chosen! Thank you, CG!|
|Aug-26-14|| ||belgradegambit: Forget all the other moves, who among would have thought to play 14 Rg1.|
|Aug-26-14|| ||kevin86: The king traveled far into hostile territory, but white won the game. Unusual, but far from unique.|
|Sep-28-15|| ||The Kings Domain: Fun and exciting game. The opening novelty of white is refreshing and he got lucky as black had a scary kingside attack. Good play from both players.|
