  lostemperor: This is called the <Colle-Zukertort> opening. A nice try against computers though there are more (like the English). With a similar opening like this (the Bishop going to f4) I almost crushed Fritz demonstrationmodel some 5 years ago (Fritz gave me a +5 value but since it was in a busy hall I still suceed in losing that one). Thats one reason I don't have too much respect for programs as I have for GMs. I mean what are my chances of crushing a GM at my first attempt:).
Dec-14-07  Karpova: Alexander Alekhine on 14...cxd4?:
<Oddly enough, this exchange - which opens for White the central file without compensation (as there is nothing for Black to do with the c-file) - is not made infrequently even by very experienced players>

Very nice game by Rubinstein. Bogoljubov resigned because of 42...Qxf2 43.Qh7+ Kf7 44.Rf3+

Jul-05-11  qqdos: <lostemperor> You will find this game annotated at some length in the 2010 book on The Zukertort System by Grigory Bogdanovich at p.306. These players were repeating this opening from the 4th game of their match with Black scoring a victory in 33 moves. Akiba had made a mistake on his 18th move, and perhaps having discovered it over-night, was ready to spring an improvement. He reached 13.Qf3! (intending Qh3) when Efim understandably diverged with 13...Ng6 having successfully played 13...Rc8 earlier. <Karpova> Alekhine's comment was made in connection with a similar position in his own game with Rosselli, Zurich 1934. Of the exchange ...cxd4, he said : "A serious strategic mistake, giving White the half-open e-file and the strong point e5". After 37.Qxg6 e2?, making a second Queen looks tempting for Black, but to no avail! His K will be harried and he will lose one of the 2 Queens.

Rubinstein vs Bogoljubov, 1920.
Your score: 78 (par = 63)


Dec-04-13  Gottschalk: 39...Re7 was a blunder. 39...Qa4, returning the position, was better. Following the game line, when Qxf2 43 Qh7check Kf7 44.Rf3 check and wins.
