Jun-03-03  electrobyte: Black should have exchanged the Queen at 28... Qxc5.
Jun-03-03  Paul123: I agree, 28....QxQ 29. BxQ Rxp 30. Bxp then either 30...Rg2 or 30...Rc8. may have given something....... However, the three pawns on white's queen side spells doom for black no matter what (IMO) I think that's the reason why he didn't trade Queens

I could be wrong I'm not that strong of a player.

Jun-03-03  Woodpusher: "Careful with Attacks Eugene" hee hee hee thats very funny but I think I'm the only person here to get the joke. Any Pink Floyd fans here?
Jun-03-03  Voxation: I'm a Pink Floyd fan, my favorite song is "Hey You"
Jun-03-03  mdorothy: Pink Floyd is AWESOME!!
Jun-03-03  Ezely Nakhdov: Ax, Attacks. Very clever the staff is... Wonder what kind of chess Syd Barrett plays these days?
Jun-04-03  Bears092: Know howing we was in those days, I wouldn't think he did too well.

It's hard to play chess while you're, shall we say, "chemically altered".

Dec-28-03  Marnoff Mirlony: Very nice final tactic to finish the game.
Feb-15-04  refutor: any opinions on tchigorin's 4.Bb5+ in the falkbeer? i think it's an interesting alternative to the "mainline" i know the stats aren't terrific for white, but there are a lot of duplicate black wins in the database
Feb-16-04  drukenknight: You will see a lot of expert level players play 4 Bb5+, my opinion is you have to retake w/ the pawn 5...bxc6 so you dont have to play with a pin.
Mar-05-04  Calchexas: OK, I get it now... OK, that's pretty funny.
Mar-05-04  NiceMove: I got the PF reference

  kevin86: You can almost date this game-with the swashbuckling more of 4Bb5+. Good entertainment from start to finish! Love the queen sac at the end!!
Mar-05-04  capanegra: Indeed, the mating combination at the end is charming. But it has to be said also that black helped pretty much with 28…♕g6?? Had he played ♕xc5 instead and, with the exchange down and no conclusive compensation for the extra pawns, Chiggy would have had to play hard to get a good result.
Mar-05-04  Whitehat1963: Love the ending.
Mar-05-04  Andrewpatrick: Great Syd Barrett reference. must be a Piper at The Gates of Dawn fan.
Mar-05-04  knightfly: Saw Pink Floyd at Earls Court, London in 1994.... Brilliant concert!
Nov-15-04  refutor: to celebrate the Russian Championships, here's a fine attacking game by Tchigorin in the 1903 USSR Championships in Kiev won by Tchigorin
Nov-15-04  acirce: <1903 USSR Championships> Try that again ;-)
Nov-15-04  sneaky pete: <refutor> <the 1903 USSR Championships> Did I miss something? Does <acirce> know?
Nov-15-04  refutor: fine, 1903 Russian championships :p
Nov-15-04  acirce: There is a USSR Championship from a time when there was not yet a USSR though, the 1920 tournament was called the 1st USSR Championship afterwards. The USSR was founded in December 1922 but 1920 was of course after the revolution.
Nov-15-04  notsodeepthought: On a related note, the NY times today had an article about the lack of knowledge of history by some younger people in today's Bulgaria - one of them thought that a certain monument was built in memory of the "liberation of Bulgaria from the Turks by the Soviets in 1878." Oh well... sometimes two wrongs make one right (but not in this case).
Nov-15-04  refutor: i'm like fischer..."it's all USSR to me" :)
