  ketchuplover: this guy's good!
Nov-20-09  tommer: Seems to me instead of 7..dXe5 the best move for black is 7 .. Bg4 in order to develop at least one queen side piece.
Aug-19-10  kparkhom: This game was repeated, move for move up until move 13 (!), in the 2009 U.S. Collegiate Pan American Championship during a match between the Texas Tech and UTD Women's Teams. Given a 300+ rating point difference between the players, this was going to be a spectacular upset for the Tech girls.

Unfortunately, after 14.Kh1!? Qc7, it is much more difficult to find the spectacular 15.Qd7!!

  jessicafischerqueen: <Kingscrusher> annotates this game on youtube:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9F0...

And shows that after the try

13.Kh1!? Qc7

15.Qd7? does not win for white.

With Rybka assistance, Kingscrusher shows that the winning move in this line would be

15.Bd7!

which introduces a spectacular double sac win for white- check the video to see the line and analysis.

Oct-23-11  sevenseaman: A wonderful Nez!

Be it life or be it chess, getting defensive is getting nowhere. You just keep reacting to the opponent's whim and fancy who never wished you to get anywhere, anyway.

May-29-12  DanielBryant: So, based on the above comments, it seems this is a fairly well known opening trap. However, exploiting it in this case certainly required some rather imaginative play.
May-29-12  Knightenprise: So, in this 14.Kh1 (at least that move seems to make more sense than 13.Kh1 instead of 13.Nf5, surely it's move 14 people mean?) line, how's 14...Nc6 for black rather than 14...Qc7?
May-29-12  LoveThatJoker: And just like that, *BAM*: Nezhmetdinov forces Checkmate!

He is a great Chess player - 'is' as his games still live on!

LTJ

May-29-12  King Sacrificer: Super Nezh didn't even need to move his Queen to deliver this beautiful checkmate.
May-29-12  Llawdogg: Thanks Jessica, for the Kingscrusher link.

May-29-12  gars: That's "mad dog" Nezhmetdinov at his most ferocious mood!
May-29-12  Rook e2: Games like these fascinate me. It shows how beautifull the game (or sport for some people) that we all play can be. Makes me want to play the same.. that can't be said of the Gelfand-Anand games..
May-29-12  IMRKs: ah Nez is my favorite player like many other ppl's, they dont make them like that any more

  kevin86: White's rook will mate next...
May-29-12  DanielBryant: 11...Bg7 runs into 12.Bxg7+ Kxg7 13.Nxd5 and if 13...Qxd5, 14.Nf5+
May-29-12  JoergWalter: 6....Nc6 instead of Bg7 is considered better.

Nunn vs Miles, 1982

Sax vs B Ivanovic, 1980

Kliavin vs Tal, 1954

A Fuderer vs P Trifunovic, 1952

May-29-12  JoergWalter: <Honza Cervenka> demonstrated a nice win in this line when black doesn't play 12...Qxd5:

J Cervenka vs Z Mladek, 1994

May-29-12  belgradegambit: Though 6 ...Bg7 is given a "?" in many opening manuals it is perfectly sound. After 7 e5 Black's only move is 7....Nh5! If 8 g4 then Nxf4 works because of the pawn fork. Usually you end up in a game like
1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 g6 6. f4 Bg7 7. e5 Nh5 8. Bb5 Bd7 9. e6 fxe6 10. Nxe6 Bxc3 11. bxc3 Qc8 12. Qd3

The position is a mess with chances for both sides which is all a Dragon player can ask for.

May-30-12  JoergWalter: <belgradegambit> the way I learned the opening Bg7 is not bad but Nc6 is preferrable. after 6...Bg7 7.e5 dxe5 8.fxe5 any knight move other than Nfd7 will be followed up by Bb5+ giving white an advantage.

Can you kindly provide examples for 7....Nh5?

May-30-12  belgradegambit: JoergWalter: I often play 6....Nd7 but Bg7 is good in blitz. There are lots of games in this variation in the database at 365chess.com. Mestel won a number of games with it as did D N L Levy - both dragon experts.
Nov-17-12  Cemoblanca: "Nez to Meet You"... LOL!!!
Apr-11-13  copablanco: Black's play was horrible.
