  An Englishman: Good Evening: Is this a misprint? Was Nezhmetdinov really White in this game, or was he actually Black? Myagmarsuren, most famous for a loss to Bobby Fischer, gives Nezhmetdinov a *big* dose of his own medicine. The combination beginning with 26...h5 is amazing--the moves come from many different directions, and there seems to be no pattern to the attack--and then, pow. The entire pawn rush is just as good as Kavalek's versus Gufeld in the exact same variation.
Jan-08-05  Maroczy: <An Englishmam> Here in the U S of A, these two fellows would have to sell out and change their names in order to land a decent paying job :). E. G. Ron Nez and Larry Marr. Probably the same goes for the UK.
Apr-22-06  blingice: This opening hurts my eyes.
Apr-22-06  whatthefat: This is a fascinating middlegame. Black a piece down, but with 3 vs. 0 centre pawns, and 4(!) vs. 0 after the exchange sacrifice!
Apr-22-06  The17thPawn: Nezhmetdinov had to have better moves in this game. Admittedly, they are not easily found but a piece vs. three pawns in the middlegame should have been a bit more telling. Definitely a game worthy of analysis
Apr-22-06  United33: there is 2 blunder made by white. 31.Qxd3?? which cause white loose his queen, and the second one is 41.Kg4?? which made white loose his night

  Eggman: United33, if White had played, say, 41.♘d6 in order to save the Knight, then 41...♕h5#!
Apr-22-06  United33: <eqqman> yes, i miss Qh5#!, thanx for correct me.

  Zenchess: United33: White could not save the Queen. If 31. Qc1?? d2, and back rank mate or the loss of the Q could not be avoided.

White's mistake was 7. d5?!; one should simply not allow such a powerful pawn center. 7. Nxe4! Qh4 8. Qe2 would have gotten some pieces out and put White in a perfect position to undermine the Black center with f3 after castling -- 8...d5 9. Ng5 e4 10. g3 Qh6 11. 0-0 Qg6 12. f3 .

On move 15, both sides missed something -- 15. Bg5? allowed ...c4, which would have totally boxed in the N and won the game. But Black missed that chance.

Then, Black missed a beautiful in-between move that would have ended the game -- 28...e3!! 29. Rxe3 cxd4.

Later, instead of 34. Bg4?, 34. Bh5!! would have equalized the position for White.

Apr-22-06  United33: <zenchess> Too bad, once again i made wrong analysis. U're right that white can't save his queen. If he choose to save the queen then mate is the punishment. Thanx again for correct me.
Apr-22-06  whatthefat: <Zenchess>
Thanks for the analysis.
Apr-22-06  Dres1: Is it just me or does anyone else disagree with each point made by Zenchess?
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: According to <The World's Greatest Chessgames> 6 Bxc6 and 7 Nxe5 gives White a clear advantage. 7 Nxe4 ed doesn't strike me as particularly promising. I don't understand how 15...c4 wins. <Zenchess>?
Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: Black had one of the greatest pawn centers in history! Five pawns marching as a great army against white's poor defenses. White's pieces are so passive,it's sickening.
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: Fritz likes 28...e3 but doesn't seem how it ends the game after 29 fe hg 30 Nf3. Neither do I. 34 Bh5 does indeed save White.

Wonderful game -- thanks for picking it,!

Apr-22-06  Ezzy: Nezhmetdinov Rashid - Myagmarsuren Lhamsuren [C64]
Ulan Bator it MGL, 1965
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Bc5 4.c3 f5 5.d4 fxe4 6.Nfd2 Bb6 7.d5 Nf6 <This piece sacrifice was first played in 1931 Colle v Vidmar. For the piece, black has a big pawn center and a lead in development.> 8.dxc6 bxc6 9.Be2 d5 10.Nb3 00 11.00 c5 12.a4 a5 13.Be3 Qe7 14.Na3 Be6 15.Bg5 <Seems to be a bit slow moving the the bishop to e3 and then 2 moves later moving it to g5.> 15...c6 16.c4 h6 17.Bh4 Kh8 18.Bg3 Bg8 19.Re1 d4 20.Qc1 Bh7 <This answers the original question of why black played 17...Kh8. He realized that his e4 square was going to be a square that needed reinforcing.> 21.Nd2< Blacks total control of the center and advanced pawns give him a massive space advantage and reduce white to total passivity.> 21...Bc7 22.Bd1 Rad8 23.Bc2 d3 24.Bd1 Qf7 25.Qc3 Rd4 26.Nb3 h5 27.Qd2?! <The only plan white really has in this position is to restrict blacks play, which is obviously going to come from 27...h4 with a later ...e3, and so 27 h4 or 27 Re3 seem essential blockading moves.> 27...h4 28.Nxd4 29.Bxh4 e3 30.fxe3 Ne4 31.Qxd3 Ng3< Blacks threatening mate on f2, and f1 if the white Queen moves to d2 or c2.> 32.Qxh7+ Kxh7 33.Bxg3 e4! < It was essential to stop 34 Bf3 blocking the' f' file> 34.Bg4 <Threatening the winning 35 Rf1 when white wins a piece, so black has to immediately take the bishop. Perhaps a better move was 34 Bh5 as this allows white to exchange his black squared bishop instead of black playing 34...Bxg3 which severely weakens whites pawn structure around his king.> 34...Bxg3 35.hxg3 Qf2+ 36.Kh2 d3 37.c5 <The only way to get the knight into play via c4>. 37...Rf6! <The start of a winning combination.> 38.Nc4 Rh6+ 39.Bh3 Rxh3+ 40.Kxh3 Qf7 41.Kg4 Qxc4 42.Kf4 Qd5 43.Rf1? <White should give his king some breathing space with 43 g4> 43...g5+ 44.Kg4 Kg6 <Threatening mate in 2 with 45 Qd7+ 46 Qxf5 mate.> 45.Kh3 Qe5 <Again threatening mate 2 with 46 Qh8+ 47 Qh5 mate.> 46.Kh2 Qxb2 47.Rab1 Qe2 48.Rfe1 Qh5+ 49.Kg1 d2 50.Red1 Qe2 51.Kh2 Kf5< And white cannot survive after 52...Kg4 53...Qxe3 etc 01>

I really like this 7..Nf6 piece sacrifice. Definitely one to try in your weekend congress games. White seems to have difficulty organizing his forces due to his lack of space and restricted central play.

I hope Kramnik plays it against Topalov in their WC match. ;-)

Nice game.

Apr-22-06  Ezzy: You would have to widen the Swiss system pairings board to fit these 2 players names on!

Does anyone understand the pun? I'm more bamboozled at this than game itself!

Apr-22-06  zev22407: What a powerfull center!
Apr-22-06  CapablancaFan: <Ezzy><Does anyone understand the pun? I'm more bamboozled at this than game itself!> The pun is a reference to the term "pez dispenser". Pez dispencers have been a part of Americana for years. It is a toy that has a head face on it who's likeness can vary i.e. mickey mouse, tweety bird, etc. There is candy inside. You tilt the head back and it "dispences" candy one by one. The pun is saying that this game that Myagmarsuren Lhamsuren easily "dispenses" with Nezhmetdinov Rashid.
Apr-22-06  Ezzy: <CapablancaFan> Thanks.

I would never have understood that in 20 reincarnations of my body. Unless of course in one of those reincarnations I popped up in America!

Apr-22-06  dakgootje: <t is a toy that has a head face on it who's likeness can vary i.e. mickey mouse, tweety bird, etc. There is candy inside. You tilt the head back and it "dispences" candy one by one.> Ah THOSE things! never knew they actually had a name lol

<Dres1> Nah, i agree with zenchess on the point that whites queen couldnt be saved around the 31th move

Nice game with a somewhat strange opening for me, is blacks 7th move much used?

Apr-22-06  blingice: <Ezzy>

It's a multinational corporation.

Apr-22-06  Ezzy: <blingice> I have just seen the pictures of the candy dispenser from the link you gave. Never seen them before.

They should have them with chessplayers heads, and when they lose you chessbucks you could use them as an effigy and burn them or stick pins in them. The 'Kramnik bashers' could pull Kramnik's head off when they get angry with him. Then after all that sadistic activity, you can calm yourself by eating the sweets.(Sorry! I mean candy!)

Apr-22-06  itz2000: can anyone tell me what fritz says about that sac in move 7? what are black chances?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Eric Schiller: <itz> I neither know nor care what Fritz has to say about openings, but the sacrifice is the only move ever played in the position, all 5 times in the database. Black's position is worse in any case, but the sac gives some dynamic potential. In fact, Black scored 4/5 from the position. Black's huge center is worth something, and he already has two pawns for the piece.

This is typical of positions that computers just can't evaluate properly.
