Rating : I dabble, but nothing serious
Favourite Player: Garry Kasparov, but that's not particuarly original... ...maybe I will find time to read more and get a more stylish favorite player...

gofer: Sorry, I have got chess blindness. I discarded <23 f6 ...> due to <23 ... g6> [DIAGRAM] I couldn't see anyway for White to attack Bh5 without compromising its own defences. The only attacker seems to be Pg3?! Nothing else can get close, so the Bh4 just sits there ...

gofer: I got the first six moves; <21 Bxd6 ...> 21 ... Rxe1+ 22 Rxe1 cxd6 23 Re8+ Kh7 24 Qh4+ Kg6 25 g4 Kg5 26 Qg3 ... But I didn't think black could allow this line. Like <Patzer2> and <WorstPlayerEver> I thought that black had to play <21 ... Be6> Which

gofer: Well, this one is not "so" very difficult. <34 ... Rxe2+> 35 Kd1 Rexf2 <35 Kxe2 Qxe4+> 36 Kd2 Nc4+ 37 Kc5 Rxf2 36 Qe3 Qc4+ 37 Kd2 Nf3+ 38 Kd1 ...

gofer: One interesting combination is a queen sacrifice... 24 ... Nxf2 25 Bf1 Nd3 26 Rd1 Qf5 27 Ne3 ... [DIAGRAM] 27 ... f2+ 28 Kh1 Qf3+ 29 Bg2 Qxd1+! [DIAGRAM] 30 Nxf1 f1=Q+ (Nf1/Bf1 Nxc1 ) 31 Bxf1 Rxf1+ 32 Kg2 Rxd1

gofer: <29 Rxh7 ...> The rook is immune. 29 ... Kxg7 30 Rh1+ Kg7/Kg8 31 Qh2 f6/f5 32 Qh8+ Kf7 33 Rh7+ Ng7 (Ke6 34 Qg8+ Rf7 35 Qxf7#) 34 Qxg7+ Ke8 (Ke6 Qxf6#/Qf6#) 35 Rh8+ Qf8 36 Nf6#/Rxf8#/Qxf8# So black has to open up its defensive pawn structure to allow something ...

gofer: The start is simple; a rook re-loader. <26 Rxc6+ Bxc6 (Kb8 Rxd6 )> <27 Rc1 ...> 27 ... Kb7 28 Rxc6+ Kxc6 29 Qxa6+ Nb6 30 Qxb6+ Kd7 31 Qb7+ Kd8 (Ke8 Qc8#) 32 Nb6 f5 (Re7 Qc8# or Bc7 33 Qc8+ Ke7 Nd5# ...

gofer: <<al wazir: 40...b2. Now what?> <If 41. Rc2, then 41...Qxf6, and I think there's still a lot of play left.>> Yes there is! For White! 42 Qg4 ... [DIAGRAM] Now it is black that must find a defence and it is very difficult for black to avoid 43 Qc8+ Kg7 44 Rg2+ ...
 
   Apr-07-17 Mamedyarov vs B Galstian, 2002 (replies)
 
gofer: Move order is important here. <19 Bxe5 Nxe5 20 Rxe5 dxe5> works, but <19 Rxe5> doesn't because it doesn't necessarily transpose. <19 Rxe5 dxe5> and now Bf4 is simply in the way! <19 Bxe5 ...> 19 ... dxe5 simply starts the combination one move earlier... <19

gofer: I went for the attack! <40 Rb8+! ...> The knight is immune. 40 ... Kxa6 41 b4! ... 41 ... Rc7/Rd7/e5/Nxh3 42 b5+ Ka5 43 Be1+! Ka4 44 Ra8+ Ra7 45 Rxa7# There are some delaying tactics... 41 ... Nd4+/Ne3 42 Bxd4/Bxd3 ... 42 ... Nd3 43 Kxd3 Rd7+ 44 Kc3 Nd4

gofer: I have seen this one before, that is the only explanation: <Deja Vu>. <30 Ng6+ ...> 30 ... Rxg3 31 Rxd8+ Qf8 32 Rxf8# 30 ... Kg8 31 Qxd6 Qxd6 32 Rxd6 Rb8 (hxg6/fxg6 Rxd8+ or Rxd6 Re8#) 33 Ne7+
