|Sep-25-02|| ||Honza Cervenka: GM Pavel Blatny was born in 1968. All games played before 1984 were played by Frantisek Blatny. |
|Sep-25-02|| ||chessgames.com: Thanks, Honza. We moved those games to this page -- Frantisek Blatny |
|Sep-09-04|| ||whiskeyrebel: I'm a huge fan of Blatny and his opening style. Does anybody know of any books in print he has published?? |
|Jan-11-05|| ||whiskeyrebel: I guess he hasn't written any books. I still haven't found any. I'm amazed at the lack of discussion here of such an adventurous players games. |
|Feb-03-05|| ||Hanada: All I know of this player is that he plays very originally and sometimes in a very unorthodox manner. For instance, I think he is one of the few players that use the Budapest (1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e5!?).|
Also, Josh Waitzkin talks about him a bit in his tutorial section in chesmaster 9000.
|Feb-03-05|| ||whiskeyrebel: I especially admire his games using the Nimzovich-Larsen attack. He's a true pioneer and modern day "hypermodern". If you're a Larsen, Suttles or Reti fan check out some of his games. You'll be glad you did. |
|Feb-03-05|| ||ArturoRivera: thisn guy becamed one of my favorite players, he uses a lot the queens pawn game, almost as Torre Repetto! |
|Feb-04-05|| ||whiskeyrebel: I wouldn't be surprised to see him open with almost anything. It must be a pain in the butt having to prepare for him. |
|Feb-04-05|| ||keypusher: He seems to like to sacrifice the exchange a lot. Ulf Andersson must have been an influence. |
|Feb-05-05|| ||whiskeyrebel: Yeah...could be. I watched him play in the 2004 National open blitz tournament and he at least seemed by my shallow way of understanding to have a lot of mighty opponents scratching their heads in the opening and the early middlegame. I sure wish he'd write a book. |
|Jul-30-05|| ||TheMouse: Does any one know if there are games where blatny plays the nimzo-larson 1. nf3 after 2001?|
|Aug-03-05|| ||TheSlid: <TheMouse> Blatny Nimzo Larsen games at:|
search "blatny A01"
|Aug-05-05|| ||TheMouse: OK, well, I know there are none on this website, but i mean on other chess databases. Also, btw, 1 Nf3 nimzolarsen games are classified on this website as A04-A06.|
|Sep-26-05|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: As a Caro-Kann man, I heartily approve of Blatny's record with this defense.|
|Oct-10-05|| ||zatoichiicc: I know Blatny as a person. I also like the way he plays chess.
If you ever run across Pavel in person, you will find that he is a nice and personable person. Not stuck up in the slightest. No bad or condensending attitude with him. He also has a very good reputation with tournament directors.|
|Oct-14-05|| ||Silman: Kovacevic(yes the same 1970 conqueror of Bobby Fischer) writes of Blatny (after obsevring the opening 1d4,c5; 2c3, from the game Blatny-Chernyshov 1992)..."Occasionally grandmaster colleagues joke about Blatny's opening play (the London System may be his most ambitious weapon with white). He is able to play at a good grandmaster level with a relatively harmless set of openings mainly because of his tactical ability. Can it be that the energy he saves by his opening approach allows him to invest a little more in his middlegame play?"|
|Dec-05-05|| ||OneArmedScissor: "energy he saves"
Opening is memorization. Don't wanna waste too much energy on remembering those openings :P
|Dec-05-05|| ||Mameluk: http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...
So called Blatny´s immortal is unfortunately missing in this database, is somebody able to include it? Of course with the fantastic line (Rh7!!!!) that Blatny missed when Knight alone mates against whole black army.
|Dec-05-05|| ||Karpova: i'm not able to include it but i was looking for it also. maust have been played at a fide ko-wm - 1997 or 1999|
|Dec-05-05|| ||Mameluk: ??? :-) Of course Blatny has never played FIDE K.O. and neither IM Watson probably. It was played at some of those North American opens, and I hope chessgames will watch the lecture and include it, because Anderssen-Kieseritzky is quite weak in comparison to this.|
|Dec-05-05|| ||James Demery: Hey Silman did you ever kibitz on the Silman page?|
|Dec-08-05|| ||cade: Is the PGN of the Blatny vs Watson game available anywhere?|
|Apr-02-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Pavel Blatny
|Sep-10-06|| ||Knight13: Blatny has played some games against Joshua Waitzkin in USCF rated tournaments, and Blatny won more games and proved to be a stronger player. Of course, this was more than 7 years ago, when Josh quit showing up in tournaments in 1999. So he was probably 2600+ at that time while Josh was 2500+ (USCF rating).|
|Oct-30-06|| ||mack: A game often hailed as a modern masterpiece - Blatny-Watson, Las Vegas 1998 - is curiously missing from chessbase, chesslab and this site. The finish is utterly spectacular:|

Having already sacrificed the house, Blatny (White, to play) had one last surprise. Put your engines away and find the winning move for yourself- it's worth it.
