|Jul-09-04|| ||InspiredByMorphy: 15.Bxf7+ ! What a move. From this point on the game is clearly Larsen's. Kind of funny how theres only one letters difference in Larsen's opponents name and his own. |
|Jul-10-08|| ||HannibalSchlecter: Owned by The Great Dane!|
|Jul-10-08|| ||Udit Narayan: Bent Larsen was 15 years old at the time of this game!|
|Sep-12-10|| ||Octal: What happens after 16 ... Kf8?|
|Sep-12-10|| ||Kapablanca: Not a nice choice for game of the day. Not even a nice tribute to recently deseased GM Bent Larsen. Lack of respect, I would that.|
About one of his inmortal games? He himself is one of the inmortal chess player.
|Sep-12-10|| ||lefthandsketch: Give admin a chance Kapablanca, i bet the next few days will feature more of Larsen's games...and rightfully so- he was a legend.|
|Sep-12-10|| ||AnalyzeThis: Seems like a perfectly interesting game to me.|
|Sep-12-10|| ||licuan: <Udit Narayan: Bent Larsen was 15 years old at the time of this game!>|
great game for a 15 years old boy!
|Sep-12-10|| ||Travis Bickle: <licuan> I agree great game for a 15 year old!! Some people you can never please.|
|Sep-12-10|| ||accuristau: Vale Bent. Your games brought me great joy.|
|Sep-12-10|| ||whiteshark: Imposter? Can't realize what is meant.|
|Sep-12-10|| ||pers0n: the puzzle, player and game of the day all feature Bent Larsen as a tribute to show how great a player he was.|
|Sep-12-10|| ||keypusher: I think the idea is that Larsen's opponent is an imposter, and this opening, uncharacteristic of Larsen, is also an imposter. I think he said that he became a grandmaster only after he learned the Catalan or English or something.|
|Sep-12-10|| ||Starf1re: Wow, what a fireworks show!!!|

True enough of the middlegame, but there was also wonderful technique demonstrated by the young Larsen in winning the BOOC ending. All-in-all, a marvelous game, and the more remarkable (especially the ending) for having been played when he was only 15 years old.
|Sep-12-10|| ||Yodaman: Jørgen Bent Larsen (4 March 1935 – 9 September 2010).|
Thank you, Chessgames.com for bringing this to my attention by honoring Larsen with a Game of the Day and a Puzzle of the Day.
|Sep-12-10|| ||Bobwhoosta: It was tough seeing Bent Larson die, as his play was imaginative, and reminds us how the newest subvariation of the Catalan Main Line isn't all there is to top level chess.|
Carlsen will soon play 1.b3, and show us again...
|Sep-12-10|| ||coachjay: This game, with tactics and an endgame, is a nice tribute to a unique Grandmaster. His influence on the chess world will continue to be felt for many years to come. RIP Bent Larsen.|
|Sep-12-10|| ||tivrfoa: nice combination|
|Sep-12-10|| ||rapidcitychess: I have a feeling we are going to see a nice Bent game tomorrow....|
|Sep-12-10|| ||Honza Cervenka: <Octal: What happens after 16 ... Kf8?> This is a good question. White would have probably continued still with 17.Ng5 (threatening Qf7#) 17...Qd7 18.Rxe8+ Kxe8 (both other moves lose quickly after 19.Re1) 19.Re1+ Kd8 20.Nf7+ Kc8 21.Bf4 with powerful attack and draw by perpetual in hand if necessary. Also 18.Bc1!? (instead of 18.Rxe8+ in previous line) with intention Ba3+ was worth of consideration. But there is no clear win for white as far as I can see and so 16...Kf8! was certainly better for black than text move.|
|Sep-13-10|| ||kevin86: I lkie the last move;black must decide what pawn will beat him.|
Not exactly PERFECT,a la Don Larson-but a fun game.

<pers0n: the puzzle, player and game of the day all feature Bent Larsen as a tribute to show how great a player he was.>
<whiteshark: Imposter? Can't realize what is meant.>
I think it's just a reference to how close the spelling (and sound) of Larsen's opponent's name is to Larsen's own, as if Laursen were trying to pass for Larsen... but then the game shows who the real Larsen is. I was looking at the game of the day archive, and when I saw "Larsen v Laursen" and the pun "Imposter!" I laughed.
|Jan-27-14|| ||GREYSTRIPE: Here in this sublime game-of-chess Tournament Grade, Bent Larsen dominated the Center and the Edges. Bent Larsen moved proper the Knights then Rooks. There is unquestionable genius in the chess-play of Bent Larsen. His chess-play dominates from Opening Complete to the End-Game-of-Note. The Bent Larsen Quality is Excellence and Triumph. The strongest chess players never make excuse for victory nor do they have a backpack of fibs. Their chess makes true the chess-board-play, and Bent Larsen is one of the finest there is. Novices would do well to study the Rooks of Bent Larsen about their chess. Instead of being hungry on a hike with no lunch, they could rather think.|
|Aug-04-17|| ||wwall: Instead of 26.Bf4, perhaps stronger is 26.Rd8 to get the rook out and aiming 27.Bf4.|
Instead of 40...Ba4, which allows 41.d5, doesn't 40...Ke6 draw with opposite colored bishops?
