26.Rxf7 was one of those sacrifices justified not by a lot of boom-checka-llecka-lecka, but by strong, forcing play. Should make interesting analysis for those prone to such things.
I thought the expression was "Glaze Over", but maybe harry Kasparov suggest the pun.
|Oct-29-16|| ||Delboy: There are not many games where both sides castle together as late as move 20. What is the record for the latest joint castling?|
|Oct-29-16|| ||Retireborn: <Delboy> According to Tim Krabbe's 1985 book it was 60 for this this game:-|
Yates vs Alekhine, 1930
However I see a kibitzer there links to agame which beats that.
|Oct-29-16|| ||morfishine: <Retireborn> In your example, Black castles on move 24 and white castled on move 36|
|Oct-29-16|| ||Retireborn: <morfishine> 24+36=60|
Perhaps your understanding of the phrase "latest joint castling" differs from mine.
|Oct-29-16|| ||morfishine: <Retireborn> I thought "joint castling" meant castling on the same move |
|Oct-29-16|| ||Ironmanth: I liked this game; instructional and interesting! Thanks.|
|Oct-29-16|| ||Retireborn: <morfishine> That may well be what <delboy> meant, I suppose. I don't know the answer but I think it would be quite a small number.|
|Oct-29-16|| ||Dip Saha: Nice game|

I thought "joint castling" was what happened when someone decided to castle and moved his king, while his opponent reached across to move the rook. :-D
|Oct-29-16|| ||morfishine: <Abdel Irade> Or perhaps both players were sharing a joint, then castled on the same move|
That would explain everything :)

Or that. :-D

Hayes is probably the one tired of their meetings, since he never won any of them.
|Nov-01-16|| ||perfidious: <Abdel Irada> More'n likely; and I speak from experience on that score.|
