  wallnuts23: Beautifully played on Mohr's part, really shows the eloquence of the tartokower variation

  Chessical: Mohrlok smashes through Anand's defences (albeit it is a young Anand) with <12.Bxh6>. This sacrifice probably should not have won, but in the position attack was easier than defence.

Mohrlok could have won even more quickly with: <25.Rg1!> e2 (25...exd2+ loses to 26.Kxd2 Qd6 27.Qh6+ Kf7 28.Bg6+ Kg8 29.Be8+) 26.Bxe2 Bc5 27.Qg5+ Kf7 28.Qg7+ Ke8 29.Bh5+ Ng6 30.Bxg6 mate

The end is: <32.Qg8+> Qf8 33.Qg6+ Kd8 34.Nxe6+

(I bet nobody here knows what Mohr's circle is.)

  FSR: Mohr Than Enough.
Jan-18-15  weisyschwarz: Mohr Than Vish.
Jan-18-15  nalinw: <Xeroxx> You lose your bet
Jan-18-15  morfishine: <Xeroxx> I got stressed out just reading the definition of 'Mohr's Circle'


Jan-18-15  ralfablanca: Great bishop work moves 10-12.

That is a very assertive Queen on moves 13 - 17!

  AylerKupp: <morfishine> How far did you get? I got as far as the first sentence of the Wikipedia article, "Mohr's circle, named after Christian Otto Mohr, is a two-dimensional graphical representation of the transformation law for the Cauchy stress tensor." Huh?

But at least it apparently has wide applicability since "The Mohr circle can be applied to any symmetric 2x2 tensor matrix, including the strain and moment of inertia tensors." I can hardly wait to apply it to my engine analysis in the next Challenge Game.

And the pictures in the article were pretty. Figures 1 and 10 reminded me of the Mandelbrot set.

Jan-18-15  schnarre: ...White's play is relentless! A well-played Torre Attack.
Jan-18-15  nestorparma: Mohr didn't even need his rook on h1. He rather founded the "No-Torre" attack variation!
Jan-19-15  morfishine: <AylerKupp> I persevered until the article mentioned the alternatives 'Lame's stress ellipsoid' & 'Cauchy's stress quadric'. I figured this was a good place to stop since I suspected and dreaded what was coming next: Line after Line of marvelously unintelligible equations

A quick peak confirmed my suspicions and that was the end of that...
