  HeMateMe: must have been a time forfeit? white is up three pawns but loses the game.

Doesn't 9...c4 just win a piece?

instead of 57.b6 (mate in 1!!) Daulyte played 57.Qa5+?? and lost the game.

Susan Polgar: "It's what chess players have to face under extreme pressure. Even a 2400 misses mate in 1 while hanging Q on same move! She needed a draw to qualify to next round and she "saw" a perpetual."

Mar-19-15  jindraz: Very interesting. White needs a draw and plays 9. Nb3, which after c4 10. Nxg5 cd 11. Nxe6 Qb6 12. Nf4 leads to complete insanity. Probably it is theory

  cro777: White is playing the 'Universal System' in the French Tarrasch. 9.Nb3!? is theory (an interesting idea in this variation; 9.dxc5 is considered to be the most critical move).

Here, the following three Black's options have been analyzed:

9...h6 (the most popular move)

9...g4 10.Ng5 c4 and

9...c4 .

In the latter case, John Watson suggests the following line:

9... c4 10. Nxg5 cxd3 11. Nxe6 Qb6 12. Nf4 Ne7 13.Qxd3

In the correspondence game Verberg - Williams (ICCF 2011), White tried 13.Qh5 and the game ended in a draw after

13...Ng6 14.e6 Nf6 15.Qf5 Be7 16.Nxd5 Nxd5 17.exf7+ Kd8 18.Qxd5+ Qd6 19.Qf3 Qf6 20.Qxd3 Qxf7 21.d5 Kc7 22.Qd4 Rg8 23.Re1 Kb8 24.c4 a5 25.Nc5 Bh3 26.Re3 Nf4 27.g3 Bd6 28.b3 Rg4 29.Ne4 Ne2+ 30.Rxe2 Qf3 ½½

57 ♕d8-a5+?? (57 b5-b6#! 1-0)

Daulyte is going to be seeing 57 ♕d8-a5+?? in her nightmares for a long time to come.

57 ... ♕e1x♕a5 0-1

And I thought the Kosintseva-Gomes match was bad...

Anyway, Socko would not have advanced had it not been for this, incident. Imagine if she ends up winning it all. I know for sure Daulyte wants Socko to be eliminated ASAP.

Er.. the game score is wrong here then? On our viewer the game ends after 56.Qd8+

Mar-20-15
Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: Yes, the game score on our viewer should be corrected. The game ended 56.Qd8+ Ka7 57.Qa5+ 0-1

http://sochi2015.fide.com/en/main-p...

(Daulyte - Socko, Round 1, rapid 2)

Mar-20-15  notyetagm: <cro777: Yes, the game score on our viewer should be corrected. The game ended 56.Qd8+ Ka7 57.Qa5+ 0-1>

So the queen capture 57 ... ♕e1x♕a5 did not actually occur? Daulyte resigned as soon as she saw that she had hung her queen?

Mar-20-15
Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: Yes, upon noticing the blunder, she resigned immediately.

D Daulyte vs M Socko, 2015 Instead of winning the game and the match with 57 b5-b6# 1-0 White hung her queen with 57 Qd8-a5+?? 0-1.

  cro777: Daulyte is an International Master (and Woman Grand Master). Immediately before this tournament she won the 15th International Chess Festival Mediterranean Flower 2015 which took place from 1st to 7th March in my home town Rijeka, Croatia.

Mar-20-15  dehanne: I guess White was a bit daulyded.

<kia0708: why so many comments under this game ?>

It's not often that you see an IM hang her queen and miss a mate in 1 <ON THE SAME MOVE(!)>.

Mar-22-15  notyetagm: A better example of <THE POWER OF ZEITNOT> you could not ask for.

  Penguincw: Just a small pointless update: Socko is knocked out by Mariya Muzychuk 3-1 in Round 2, so at least Daulyte knows Socko wasn't able to take too big advantage of this blunder.

<Penguincw: Just a small pointless update: Socko is knocked out by Mariya Muzychuk 3-1 in Round 2, so at least Daulyte knows Socko wasn't able to take too big advantage of this blunder.>

So Socko was lost in all 4 of the 25'+10" rapid tiebreak games but managed to win the second one against Daulyte because of 57 Qd8-a5+??.

  Peligroso Patzer: As others have noted, the version of this game currently in the CG database omits the final move pair (56. ... Ka7? 57. Qa5+???).

  Korora: I'm not sure what happens after 56. ...♗c8, but it looks (at least to my patzer eye) like 56. ... ♔a7 warranted at least one question mark (luckily for Socko, immediately followed by a ?? move).

  Korora: Follow-up to previous comment: Every line I've examined so far with 56. ... ♗c8 only delays mate a few moves (barring a different screwup on Cornette's part).
