|Aug-13-03|| ||PVS: I agree Emil, this is an excellent game. Both sides showed resourceful play. I like the sequence from 20...Kh7 through 27…Bg4. |
|Aug-13-03|| ||ughaibu: Would 19.Nb5 be any good? |
|Aug-13-03|| ||francescog: <ughaibu> I don't think 19. Nxb5 would work. In fact it could follow 19 ... Bxb5 and white has to face a series of threats. Black could do 20. ... Nxb2
21. Qxb5 Nxd1 and Black has the open c column. Plus white still would have to fight not to lose the bishop in g5 and he has to prevent the deadly knight in f2. So 19 Rhe1 does a good job in a difficult position...
ps. I hope not to have stressed too many silly things in my "analysis" =) |
|Aug-13-03|| ||ughaibu: Francescog: thanks for the reply. I think you've forgotten that the Nc4 is pinned by the Bb3 so Nb2 isn't an immediate threat. I was thinking of something like, 19. Nb5 Bb5 20. e7 Qe7 21. Nd6 threatening c4, b5 and c8 with the knight and g6 with the queen. |
|Aug-13-03|| ||francescog: <ughaibu> you're completely right! the only way to explain my error (besides my absent-mindedness, obviously), was that I had still in mind that Miles actually moved the king (which he does LATER, at the 20th move, but that I had seen earlier, when looking at the whole match). I should have checked better. Now I see that your line sems good, and could have been better that the one actually played. |

|Apr-24-06|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: How much (if any) of this was sound for either player?|
|Apr-24-06|| ||syracrophy: An awesome game!:
31...Rxd5+!! <Obviously not 31...Bxe5?? 32.Rh7++>
After 32.Qxd5 g1=Q and the victory is a few Miles away...=D
|Apr-24-06|| ||khense: Looked like black was eating it all the way until 28...QXd1+. Unless someone can tell me otherwise, I have to think that Miles wasn't miles ahead until then.|
|Apr-24-06|| ||zev22407: A great game Miles had the counter strikes with B-g4 Q-d1+ and R:d5+|
|Apr-24-06|| ||itz2000: 2 Questions...
but what now? what did stopped white from getting that bishop?
Second question, <IMPORTANT!>
What is the Yoguslav attack? I don't get it... which moves is it, what does it mean... thanks guys.
|Apr-24-06|| ||rya: khense, this is one of my systems I use constantly. Black looked outstanding all game, completely in control. The center pawn losses and quick kingside attacks are par for the course in the accelerated dragon.|
|Apr-24-06|| ||pawn to QB4: Hi <itz2000> I wonder if 19...fxg5 20.Nxg5 gives some decent threats like dxe7, Qxg6 and Ne6?
I've always assumed the Yugoslav attack to be 6.Be3 and 7.f3 (or other way round). I play it planning a crude attack: Qd2, h4 g4 0-0-0 and Bh6, open up h file by any means necessary. Well worth a look: in the early 70s it almost wiped out the dragon from master play and your opponent has to know the ideas to play against this easy-to-find stuff from White.|
|Apr-24-06|| ||pulsar: the way I see it,yes, 19....fxg4 will be answered by 20.Nxg5 with the threat of dxe7 and Qxg6, the latter being more immediate. If 20...Rf6 (Qe8 will be answered by 21.Rxe7)then 21.dxe7 Qe8 22.Ndf3 Nf2 23. Qxd7 Nxd1 24. Qxc8 Qxc8 25. d8Q+ Qxd8 25. Rxd8+ Rf8 26.Rxf8 Bxf8 27. Kxd1 and white comes up a piece ahead. On 22...Bf5 23.Qd5 Kh8 24.Ne5, I think white still retains the advantage...I think the same holds for 22...Bc6 as the knight on c4 will lose its support from the c8 rook. It's so hard to analyze the position so I might be missing a lot of things.=) a very nice fighting game!|
|Apr-24-06|| ||prinsallan: Spectacular. Last moment when everything looks like a cornered king and checkmate for white black checks his way to victory! Simply amazing.|
|Apr-24-06|| ||gmgomes: <what is the Yoguslav Attack?>
I saw a video about a game Fischer x Larsen, about it:|
|Apr-24-06|| ||GlennOliver: 25. Nxb5 looks preferable|
|Apr-24-06|| ||dakgootje: <gmgomes> Thanks for that link! Took some time sometimes to understand all his english, as he didnt pronounce every word too clearly (which i dont either, but i dont do such programs ;-), but it was really worth watching!|
|Apr-24-06|| ||Peligroso Patzer: This is a fantastic game. It won the best game prize for its volume of Chess Informant (#30) by a wide margin.|
|Apr-24-06|| ||Castle In The Sky: Brilliant tactics by both sides. A remarkable game.|
|Apr-24-06|| ||kevin86: A strange finish:black sacrifices his queen only to eventually end up a queen to the good!|
Both sides have queen sacs in the same game! Until black captures the bishop at d5,the queen is taboo,on penalty of immediate mate.
|Apr-24-06|| ||Shajmaty: <rya: are par for the course in the accelerated dragon> But this is not an Accelerated Dragon: this is the Dragon (B7x) itself!|
|Apr-24-06|| ||Shajmaty: <syracrophy: After 32.Qxd5 g1=Q and the victory is a few Miles away> More precisely, the victory is nine moves away: 33. Rxf7, Qd1+; 34. Ke3, Re8+; 35. Re7, Rxe7+, et cetera.|
|Apr-24-06|| ||Shajmaty: 17 Ne4? is a (little) mistake. The best move is 17 exd6!, as Miles played with the White pieces seven years later. Nice play, Tony!|
|Apr-24-06|| ||Nomen Nescio: I would have traded more early on as white.|
