  piltdown man: The player of the Black pieces was a grandmaster? You'd never know it, he played like I do. (Badly!)
Jun-16-12  sevenseaman: What a master class! GOTD is late enough, how about POTD? Umpteen places for a choice but <40. c7> will be tough to beat.
Jun-16-12  rilkefan: Stockfish thinks ...Nxd3 was necessary on move 17 or earlier. 15...Ne8 (or 15...h6 with 16...Nh7 [unless 16.g5] or ...d5 or ...Nxd3) was a rather better chance, though with accurate if obvious play white retains a half-pawn advantage (25 plies). It reckons black is about equal after 14...Qc7 or 14...Be8 (with white needing to find good moves) but chooses (26 plies, 1 Gnode) 14...Nxd3 15.Qxd3 b4 16.Nce2 Qc7 17.Rc1 Qb7 18.Ng3 d5 with a very small edge (-0.2, now actually with 15.cxd3, which I had suggested out of curiosity).

  Tiggler: Great game by W. His knight was hanging on d4 for six moves after 20... e5 before he played 26. Nf3! That same knight later torments the B king and plays the winning discovered check on move 39.

Azmaiparasvili was rated 2703 in July 2003, curently 2637 and ranked 132 in the world at age 52. So what is your FIDE rating piltdown? Or are you a fake like your namesake?

Jun-16-12  PhilFeeley: Anytime you get to sac your queen is a good time!
Jun-16-12  hedgeh0g: What a beautiful game.

The fact it was played against such an a****** makes it all the more satisfying.

  piltdown man: Tiggler: I don't mind admitting that I am a very poor player - I believe that "patzer" is the official term. But that doesn't preclude me from believing that the player of the Black pieces in this game played very poorly. I am surprised to see that he was so highly rated, maybe he was having a bad day.

This is, of course, to take nothing away from White's brilliant performance.

Jun-16-12  sorokahdeen: @Piltdown:

I think if you look very carefully at the game, by looking over each element of the attack and defense and perhaps longer than you are normally used to looking at moves in a position, you may find that Oll's attack was simply stronger than azmaiparashvili's defense.

azmaiparashvili did what you are supposed to do. He avoided pawn moves in his king's position until he was forced to make them by concrete threats (23...g6). He tried to break out of passive defense by counterattacking (27... d5).

From what I saw he did everything you're supposed to do in a chess game against an attack and his still lost and I think he lost not because he sucked that day or just sucked, period, but because Oll outplayed him, coming up with moves that were better, that were faster and more convincing then those his opponent used to counter them time and again culminating with the deep queen sacrifice caused his game to collapse.

Truly brilliant game. I wish I had the chops to understand it better.

Jun-16-12  PaulLovric: <FSR: Dang, this guy was a genius. A shame that he killed himself.> I've just read that he took his own life, under what circumstances, was he a crazy genius like Fischer is said to have been? This game is brilliant!

  Honza Cervenka: This attack looks crazy but in fact it arose from clear positional advantage, which white got from the opening. Tactical execution of it was absolutely flawless. Nice game.

We all have bad days. Sorry about the crack about being "fake". It was just your handle that suggested that comment.

Jun-16-12  rilkefan: <<sorokahdeen>: azmaiparashvili did what you are supposed to do>

Per the above SF-based analysis, he wasted a tempo with ...Kh8, missed better options on move 15, and left the white LSB on too long, at which point he was lost. Not that white didn't play very well.

I know very little about him. According to Wikipedia, he killed himself after being depressed following his divorce. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lembit... As they say, "Women! You can't live with 'em, you can't live without 'em." Sometimes literally.

Jun-17-12  King Death: Where did this crazy game come from? White's play was inspired for sure.

  wordfunph: game toppings :)

<GM Jaan Ehlvest: I recall, the point at which Lembit could not suppress his laughter happened in the position after white's 17th move. I think around here Lembit stood up and could not hold his breath, making noises like 'tss, tss'. Azmai's reaction was the loud reply: 'Po morde stoli zakhotelos?' (Do you want to be smacked in the face? - ed.). Anyway, the game was fully under Lembit's control.>
