Dec-09-05  LIFE Master AJ: Not a chess game, but some form of a weird chess variant marathon. (wow)
Dec-09-05  Resignation Trap: Any ideas on what this opening should be called? I'm stumped! I've never seen anything like it at this level!
Dec-09-05  who: What's wrong with 20...Bxh1
Dec-09-05  Ivan23: This happens when two very unorthodox players meet at the chessboard. I met GM Kovacevic once in person and he is a very pleasant man and from what I read on Internet same thing can be said about Mr.Day.

  IMlday: Weird opening eh. 11..♕d6! doesn't look any worse for Black, so 11..e6!? was maybe too optimistic. 20..♗xh1 21.♘xc7 ♗d6 22.♘xa8 ♔h7! looks better for Black. That was the 'lure', but the problem is that 21.♘b5! clearly favours White. So 20..♗xd6 was the best chance available. We were both short of time of course after that opening. 42.♘d4! was the killer shot. I wish all the games I lost paired way up with Black had been so much fun! And yes, <Ivan23> Croatian GM Vladimir Kovacevic was/is definitely a pleasant person, an old-school style gentleman with a twinkle in his eye and a sense of humour at the board.
