|Feb-06-15|| ||luzhin: Not surprising this won the best game prize at Gibraltar. Among other spectacular variations there was 23.Kf4 Ng6+ 24.Kxf5 Qf6+ 25.Kg4 Qh4+ 26.Kf5 Be4 mate! I nominate this for Game of the Day, under the title No Way To Treat A Lady.|
|Feb-06-15|| ||SirRuthless: Good game. This defense should be called the QGA; Nakamura system-Edouard line.|
|Feb-07-15|| ||morfishine: Perhaps <13.Bc3> is more solid|
|Feb-13-15|| ||FSR: I never saw this line for Black (6...a6 7.Nxb5 axb5) before. ChessBase online has 15 games with it, all but three of which were played since March 2014.|
|Feb-13-15|| ||Nerwal: A new line indeed, but this concept had already been tried in similar positions : |
Gelfand vs Bacrot, 2002
Aronian vs McShane, 2012
|Feb-13-15|| ||nummerzwei: <Nerwal>: Indeed. I've even started a game collection on this type of sacrifice a while ago.|
Game Collection: Slav Defence: Exchange Grab on a8
It's still rather slim, but it has three further examples other than those you mentioned.
|Jul-15-15|| ||mruknowwho: This is entertaining. I love games with strange, unpredictable moves.|
|Jul-15-15|| ||dunican: So could someone explain, in general terms, what's the point of this exchange line? It seems so counter-intuitive, especially with not taking 9..Bxe4.|
|Jul-15-15|| ||leow: I also wonder why not 9..Bxe4 I smell a rat but can't see it|
|Jul-15-15|| ||nullmove: 16. Nf4 was the careless move, ceding control of d4. Required was 16. Bxb4 first.|
|Jul-15-15|| ||goodevans: <nullmove: 16. Nf4 was the careless move, ceding control of d4. Required was 16. Bxb4 first.>|
... except that that falls foul of <...fxe4>. white was in a bind and <16.Nf4> was an attempt to make some room.
|Jul-15-15|| ||LivBlockade: Here's another game in this line: B Adhiban vs Nakamura, 2015|
|Jul-15-15|| ||kevin86: Black wins the queen...and the game!|
|Jul-15-15|| ||Sneaky: Woah! I never knew that 7.Nxb5 was even possible!
Oh no, this means there's one more opening variation I have to know about. Based only by this game, learning how to play the White side of this doesn't look like a whole lot of fun.
Curse these players coming up with new ideas.
|Nov-12-16|| ||MariusDaniel: Very nice game!|
