ChessBookie Game

"My cousin Sammy told me a true slugger - a Szeged slugger - will always swing for the fences, and that is exactly what I am going to do. I am going to knock Kramnik out of the room with my 'home run punch.' My trainer and I have been developing it in camp. I just hope Vladimir's head is screwed on tight or it may end up on top of the demonstration board!" Game Collection: Lékó - Fireless and Boring?

Are you a player desperately in search for a system against 1.e4? Don't worry, friend, help is here. Finally, an easy and solid Black repertoire is available for everybody - the ultimate Owen Defense collection is complete and finished! Game Collection: Owen Defense

SwitchingQuylthulg: Sorry, you'll need to ask Daniel Freeman about the Leuven blitz bets; he was supposed to sort them out long ago, and I have no idea what's caused the delay. Last I heard, <Annie> was going to prod him; apparently that didn't help.

SwitchingQuylthulg: 42.Kd2? transposes into 42.Kf1?; 42...fxg3 43.fxg3 (forced) Ke4 44.Ke2 (forced again) Kd4 and we have the same position as in the game.

SwitchingQuylthulg: A player I'd like to see in a rapid/blitz tournament like this would be Nepo; he's a monster at fast time controls. But there wasn't much room to put this field together with the specific time controls in mind; eight of the players (Aronian, Caruana, Giri, Kramnik, ...

  Annie K.: Well, I never tried to use either, so no actual experience there. :)

Btw, according to the same post, these lines are not supposed to appear in the uploaded pgn?

<• This tag will not appear on the PGN once it is inserted into the Chessgames database; it's only an intermediate measure to be used when uploading.>

<luft> note that <cg> also says that it's best to use these tags only in cases where there's a real danger of ambiguity, and not regularly.

  SwitchingQuylthulg: The ChessgamesWhiteID and ChessgamesBlackID tags don't appear in all PGN files, but they do appear in Zipfile Archive PGN.

  Annie K.: Aha! Thanks. That's interesting. :)

Hmm, maybe the script can recognize both versions then, or maybe it would be a good idea to ask <cg> about it sometime.

  luftforlife: <Switch> <Annie K.>: Thanks very much! I will only use the ChessgamesWhiteID and ChessgamesBlackID tags where there is risk of confusion; I won't routinely use them. The particular contemplated annotations to which I adverted would be new ones created by one of the players of a game for inclusion with the game here on CG. I'm sensitive to copyright issues, and I made sure to familiarize myself with CG's policies in this regard, and so I would always secure express permission from the holder of the copyright before including any copyrighted annotations in any PGN upload submissions, and I would always spell out in any annotated submissions whence I obtained the annotations and why CG would be allowed to use them. I'm with you there, and I'm glad you made that point, and I'm really grateful to you both for your answers. :)

White to play

Jun-03-16
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Hmm, I see the idea of moving the knight, perhaps exchanging the queen and winning the black knight or a8 rook, but trying to find the right move order. I'm also looking for a combination that doesn't exchange 2 minor pieces for a rook, which isn't all that great.
Jun-03-16
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: <Penguincw> You have the right idea, but the one move that makes it work isn't easy to spot :)

Here's another puzzle... probably easier, but still not trivial.

  eternaloptimist: Hey <Switch>, How's it going? I just wanted to inform u that the betting on the Carlsen-So game in rd 8 didn't close until after the game was already over w/. I noticed that some ppl even placed their bets after the game was over w/. B/c of this, the bets on Carlsen placed after the game started shouldn't count. Is there any way that u can detect when the bets were placed? U can delete this kibitz after u see it if u want. I hope u r doing well. Thx!

<1.Rac1!> and White wins material; if 1...Rac8 2.Rxc6 Rxc6 3.Ne7+; 1...Qxe3 2.Nxe3 and the knight on c6 is pinned; 1...Na5 2.Ne7+ and a8 drops.

<1...Re3!> and Black wins; 2. fxe3 Qf3+ 3.Ke1 Qxe3+ 4.Kf1 Qf3+! 5.Ke1 Qxc3+ and White is dead.

  Penguincw: Too bad <cg> doesn't have an automatic avatar-to-user feature, but if you ask <cg>, they could tell you. They could also give you back your old avatar (well obviously they would make a small adjustment, just in case you run into your, doppelganger). But I'm sure you're happy with your new one. :)

Check out this page though (in case you weren't already aware of it):

Avatar Area

Lists all the avatars and their IDs. Of course, the avatar page lists the avatars in order by ID number. Mine is 637, your old one is 760 (that's what it looked like, right).
