|Aug-30-08|| ||Peligroso Patzer: Jesus de la Villa is the author of the recently released "100 Endgames You Must Know" (New in Chess 2008). Despite a few flaws, I have found it to be an excellent book.|
As far as the flaws are concerned, in addition to a few typographical errors, there is the curious statement on page 57 that the author has "never seen [King + Knight Checkmate (versus King on a- or h-file in front of its own advanced pawn)] in an actual game ...". He is apparently unaware of this example from the Cuban Championship several years ago: J Nogueiras vs M Gongora, 2001.

|Aug-30-08|| ||Peligroso Patzer: I have one additional comment re: de la Villa's "100 Endgames". On page 203, Position 12.42 is as follows:
click for larger view
(White to move)
De la Villa gives the winning breakthrough with 1. h6! Ke6 2. g6
Of this breakthrough, de la Villa remarks that it "has caught out many players, among them Capablanca."
The only similar position involving Capablanca known to me is I-106 (Capablanca - Ed. Lasker, London Simul 1913) from page 42 of the 2nd Edition of Dvoretsky's Endgame Manual:

(Black to move)
The game continuation was 1. ... Ke5?? 2. h6! and White wins. Dvoretsky points out that "The draw would have been assured after 1. ... Ke6! 2. Kxd4 f4 3. Ke4 f3 4. Kxf3 Kf5 5. g6 hg 6. hg Kf6=."
Does anyone know of the instance alluded to by de la Villa where Capablanca fell victim to this breakthrough?
|Aug-30-09|| ||wordfunph: Feliz cumpleaños GM Jesus De La Villa Garcia!|
|Aug-30-10|| ||kramputz: Could we come up with a few more names for him. This one is not long enough...
"Little boy in the second chair; how do you spell your name."|
|Aug-30-11|| ||Wild Bill: Feliz cumpleaños, señor de la Villa.|
|Aug-30-11|| ||ildum: Su libro 'Desmontando la siciliana' es muy interesante para aprender como jugar la siciliana con blancas.|
His book 'Dismantling the Sicilian' is very interesting to learn how to play the sicilian as white.
|Jan-08-17|| ||Sourav: Position I.6 is as follows: |
click for larger view
The author states 'Black wins, no matter whose move it is'. I do not see how black can win this game. Can someone please explain?
|Jan-08-17|| ||Retireborn: Basically Black plays ...Nd5-f4. When/if White plays Kg1, then ...Ke2. Then White plays Kh1 and Black replies ...Nh3! Then gxh3 is forced and Black plays ...Kf2 and promotes his pawn.|
