|Nov-27-13|| ||Kinghunt: Quite an exciting game. Vitiugov probably should have won, but when you play such swashbuckling chess, you can't complain about the outcome.|
|Nov-27-13|| ||Garech: Phenomenal tenacity from Robson; this is youthful chess!|
|Nov-27-13|| ||310metaltrader: anyone care to annotate?|
|Nov-27-13|| ||Steve.Patzer: Looks more like blitz|
|Nov-27-13|| ||willogical: Isn't 22. ...Qe1+ checkmate? Or am I blind, deaf and dumb?|
|Nov-27-13|| ||zoren: <willogical>
King can go to g1.
|Nov-27-13|| ||jakaiden: <willogical: Isn't 22. ...Qe1+ checkmate? Or am I blind, deaf and dumb?> 23. Kg1.|
|Nov-27-13|| ||csmath: 24. ...Qd1?
[Robson makes move that should lose the game.]
[Vitiugov returns the favor apparently thinking that his king's safety is compromised.
is winning for example
26. h7 Rxe2
27. Kg1! Qd4+
and white wins exchange no matter what black does. The position is still complex but white position is winning.]
[White position is bad but
26. Be2 offers more resistance even with a piece down.]
26. ... Ne3
[most natural move, it is hard to see how is this possible to overlook.]
Vitiugov loses game by tactical oversight.
|Nov-27-13|| ||offramp: White's queen's bishop takes a journey in this game the like of which I have never seen any bishop take before!|
|Nov-27-13|| ||whiteshark: Isn't it a <Semi-Slav Defense: Marshall Gambit. Main Line>|
|Nov-27-13|| ||csmath: Which is also Queen's Gambit Declined so no mistake here. It is surely Marshall Gambit in Semi-Slav as opposed to the (rare) one in Tarasch.|
|Nov-27-13|| ||csmath: By the way, I think this shows tutoring of Susan Polgar as she played Marshall Gambit with both colors in 1990ies.|
|Nov-27-13|| ||Steve.Patzer: Doesn't 15. Bf6 create problems for black?|
|Nov-27-13|| ||csmath: No because the white king has no vent so after 16. Qb1 white has to return the queen to d1.|
|Nov-27-13|| ||Steve.Patzer: <csmath> What if after 15. Bf6 Qb1 16. Kd2?|
|Nov-27-13|| ||Refused: <Steve.Patzer: <csmath> What if after 15. Bf6 Qb1 16. Kd2?>|
I am not csmath, but
16...Qc2+ and you have to play 17.Ke1 again.
Because Ke3 runs into a little fork: Nf5+ and you can say your goodbyes to the Queen on d6 and the game.
|Nov-28-13|| ||HeMateMe: exciting game.|
|Dec-06-13|| ||Xeroxx: best game|
|Dec-09-13|| ||furo: After robson's so-called "novelty" 22. ...Nf4, why not 23.Nc3 |
Looks like ample counterplay
and then when white loses the rook soon after, then white's Bg5 is still a dominant threat, no?
