A mistake. Correct was 27...Qe7! A thunderbolt now follows:
28.Bxg7!! Kxg7 29.Rf7+ Kxf7 30.Qxh7+ Kf6 31.Rf1+ Ke5 32.Qh5+ Ke4 33.Re1+ Kd4 34.Rd1+ Ke3 35.Qg5+ Kf3 36.Rf1+ Ke4 37.Re1+
And Black resigned in view of 37...Kd4 38.Qc1 Qa6 39.Qe3+ Kd5 40.Qe5+ Kc6 41.Rc1+ Kb6 42.Qxc7+ Kb5 43.Rc5#

|Nov-03-08|| ||timhortons: id e mailed daniel freeman of these photo that i got of grandmaster mikhalevski during the canadian open|
i gave you the freedom to use it if you want for posting here.
|Nov-03-08|| ||timhortons: daniel freeman thanks for posting it.
at the canadian open id tried to take a snap of IM noritsyn of canada but the guy gave me a stern look that i back off humiliated.
he is a very nice guy at icc, a regular observer of nakamura game and a pleasant kibitzer, but things got different in that situation.
I compose my self gather a deep breath and stay in the corner.Id seen grandmaster mikhalivski get inside a hall, i go near him and ask if i could take a shot, he smiled and pose, i take 3 pics and these is the best one.
|Nov-03-08|| ||unsound: <timhortons> Nice photo. (And I really like that shot you've got on flcikr of the presidents cup--the frame's so crowded it gives it tons of atmosphere.)|
|Nov-04-08|| ||timhortons: <unsound>, that photo belongs to manny ygpuara, kadsawy of kuwait chess and me cover the tournament, manny ygpuara of filipino kuwait chess association are feeding us news from time to time.|
i hope 2009 could gather as much grandmaster to montreal, ill be taking more video and photo and make friends with them at icc.
|Jul-08-09|| ||wordfunph: GM Victor Mikhalevski once participated a tourney in the Philippines, i think it was PGMA Cup in 2007..|
Happy Birthday GM Mikhalevski!
|Jul-08-09|| ||Don Cossacks: <wordfunph>Nope it was on 2006|
|Jul-08-09|| ||wordfunph: <Don Cossacks: <wordfunph>Nope it was on 2006> ahhh....i wasn't sure. Thanks for the correction <Don Cossacks>..maybe you are GM Mikhalevski!|
|Jul-08-09|| ||timhortons: happy bday gm mik!
one of the nicest GM.
|Aug-04-09|| ||jon01: Here are some cool pictures of Mikhalevski and Shirov taken in Canadian Open 2009.|
|May-26-10|| ||Tabanus: Winner of the Calgary International Chess Classic (Canada) 20-24 May 2010:|
|Jul-08-10|| ||wordfunph: happy bday gm mikhalevski!|
|Jun-27-12|| ||PhilFeeley: I guess he's a quiet, unassuming guy; no controversial or rude behaviour 'a la Gormally or Kasparov. So he doesn't get much commentary. But I love the fact that he plays in Canada regularly. He's currently playing in the 7th Edmonton Internatonal (http://www.albertachess.org/2012EIC...), and I wish him well.|
|Jun-27-12|| ||King Death: <PhilFeeley> A lot of the IMs and GMs that I played or met when I was active were the same way. Personalities like Walter Browne were the exception not the rule in my experience. You wouldn't have known for example away from the board that Larry Christiansen was anything special, not that I knew him well but he seemed like a decent guy. Back in the mid 70s it was obvious he was going places, even before he got the GM title. The kid had a great eye for tactics.|
|Jul-01-12|| ||HeMateMe: Looking at the photo, the guy looks happy, well adjusted and normal.|
Are you SURE he's a chess champion?
|Jul-01-12|| ||OBIT: He looks like Seth Green (the comic guy guy on The Big Bang Theory), except with less hair: |
|Aug-20-12|| ||mccarthpm: doesnt Q takes q just win easliy??|
|Jul-08-13|| ||brankat: Happy Birthday GM Mikhalevski!|
|Jul-08-18|| ||Richard Taylor: Good on Victor Mikhalevski! He is the same age as my son and has the same first name. But my son is not a chess player of his calibre...|
But Mikhalevski has played some fine games as I see them above.
|Jul-09-18|| ||perfidious: Played Mikhalevski once, in an ICC event in spring 2001, the last time I faced a Gruenfeld; got waxed in my old favourite 4.Nf3 Bg7 5.Bg5, which I used against players from duffer to GM.|
