Dec-01-04  kostich in time: Kings Bishops pawn murder case. If one plays over the games played at Bled in 1931, one can see that Augustine had a gigantic influence on all the competitors. Time and again, one see players "playing like Alekhine', taking gigantic risks.This is a case in point. Kashdan..master of technique, the "little Capablanca" takes agigantic risk, sacrificing a knight on f2, essentially for a sharp, risky attack. The complications are fascinating, and one sees "kash" keeeping a cool head throughout.According to Kmoch, Colle lost his way, and could have won, but that does not detract from the sharpness of Kashdans play, or his nice finish..one of the greatest games ever played by an American, and -perhaps-the boldest and most enterprising game played by an American since Pillsbury's heyday.
Jul-16-07  Hesam7: Colle missed a beautiful shot to save the game: 28. Ne6!! Qxe6 (28. ... Rxe6 29. Qc5 ) 29. Nf5

And now White has the upper hand due to the threats Qc5 and Rxg5.

May-14-10  elohah: Notes:

If 15 Nh4? Nxf2!! wins.

16...? Kash still plays it, stubbornly, but now it's unsound. Black's solid line: 16...Bxe3 17 Rxe3
Nf6 18 Rxe8+ Rxe8 19 Nxg6 hxg6 20 g3?!
Ne5 (plus for Black), or 20 h3 Nh5
(plus for Black).

19 If Kf3?! Ne5+ 20 Rxe5 Rxe5 (Xe3;f6)

24 Correct is 24 Bxg6 hxg6 25 Qd2, refuting the sac, or 24...Nxg6 25 Rg4 Nf4+ ( 25...Re8 26 Qf5!) 26 Kg3 Nh5+
27 Kf2! winning.

But overall, in the rest of the game,there is some accurate tactical play by Kash.

Jun-14-11  zdigyigy: Talk about a shot out of the blue. Well played against Colle.
