|Mar-12-15|| ||Castleinthesky: Outlandishly great and against one of my favorite players!|
|Mar-12-15|| ||SuperPatzer77: I'm still confused about 0-1. Who won that game?? Nashmetdinov or Ujtelky???|
It should be 1-0 instead of 0-1, correct???

Judging by the position, it looks like 0-1. However, I always find it confusing when one side makes a move and resigns before their opponent responds with their move.
|Mar-12-15|| ||SuperPatzer77: <Penguincw> Thanks for clarifying it. It looks like Neshmetdinov made 75. a8=Q and then big oops. Then he resigns after he moves his a-pawn to a8 and promotes to a queen. |
<Penquincw> You're absolutely right about that. No way White can fight for a draw.
|Mar-12-15|| ||Conrad93: Why in the world did white play 11. KF1? I just don't get it.|
|Mar-12-15|| ||rollingrook5: A classic game. I have employed the Hippo formation seen at move 10, but I do not have the guts to arrive at the absurd wall seen at move 18.|
|Mar-12-15|| ||morfishine: The "losing move" was 36.Ne1 allowing 36...Bxe5. Clearly better was the positional <36.Re1> shoring up <e5>|
|Mar-12-15|| ||Cheapo by the Dozen: One of the best puns I've ever seen here.
Hungry Hungry Hippo is a rather famous children's toy or game. And the Hippo in the game ate a remarkable amount of material.
|Mar-13-15|| ||kevin86: eight pawns on the third!!! What a partie!|
|Mar-16-15|| ||Honza Cervenka: <Conrad93: Why in the world did white play 11. KF1? I just don't get it.> Nezh apparently planned to develop his Rook by lift via h3 and he also wanted to get his King from the centre. That is why he played 11.Kf1 and 12.Kg1 instead of castling.|
|Mar-18-15|| ||Alex Schindler: Super nezh even makes losing look spectacular. And with two Queens and a pawn on the seventh, he also makes losing look suspiciously like winning at a cursory glance. Crazy position to end a crazy game.|
|Dec-09-15|| ||Albanius: Nezh apparently resigned after realizing that the B Q covers h8.
After 75 ..Ra8 76 h8/Q? Rxh8 77 Rxh8 Qxh8+
and B will mate soon after d4 opening the long diagonal.
So better would be going into an endgame with
76 Qxa8 Bxa8 77 h8/Q Qxh8 78 Rxh8
but B wins easily with 78..d4!
The W rook might be able to capture the d pawn or the B,
but not both.
|Dec-09-15|| ||andrewjsacks: This strange game looks as if it may have been contested between a Martian and a chess-playing computer program from Pluto, but I'm not sure who had which color.|
|Dec-09-15|| ||MyCoachingDreams: Kirsan agrees.|
|Apr-20-16|| ||Ilkka Salonen: How would 67. Rg8 work? Maybe I'm missing something but it would seem to guarantee white a promotion or at least a rook.|
|Jul-05-16|| ||HeMateMe: The Hateful Eight!|
|Jul-05-16|| ||diceman: Kind of hilarious this is called the:
"Standard Defense" of the Modern Opening.
|May-05-17|| ||hudapri: Pure trolling.|
|May-06-17|| ||PhilFeeley: Weirdest game I've ever seen: all black pawns on the 6th rank by move 18. When is that ever good? Think what Carlsen or Kasparov would have made of that.|
|Jan-10-18|| ||GT3RS: This is one of the craziest games I've ever seen. Reminds me of Tal vs Koblents.|
45. Nxe6 (not sure what Nez was thinking. I guess he never learned to defend).
but 52. Qe5 was a decisive mistake.
Weird, but a brilliant loss.
|Feb-14-19|| ||OhioChessFan: <but 52. Qe5 was a decisive mistake.> |
Patzer sees check, gives a check.
|Feb-15-19|| ||andrewjsacks: Remarkable game. Shades of Philidor? Edgar Allan Poe?|
|Feb-15-19|| ||bezofu: This game is one complicated, psychological warfare.|
After immobilizing all his pieces and settling for permanently weak dark squares on the Queenside, Ujtelky defiantly drops an Exchange, hoping to play 32...h5 and then win the following game of light-square checkers.
When Nezhmetdinov allows that to happen and braces himself for a completely different board game practice, 32...h5 never appears on the board. Upset by the necessity of playing more redundant chess moves, White blunders with 36. Ne1.
This doesn't stop Black from persistently setting up a game of checkers - and after 43...h5, he is in his strategic glory, evidently forcing his opponent to sacrifice a piece in a desperate bid to keep playing chess.
But this time, Black finally picks up the gauntlet - and smashes his opponent, who has evidently lost thread which game he was supposed to play.
|Jul-07-19|| ||saffuna: Anybody with an idea what happened here, please let me know.|
Looks to me as if 67...Nf3+ wins: 68. gxf3 Qg7+ 69. Kg1 Bb5+
(from agadmator YouTube analysis)
|Sep-21-19|| ||Cheapo by the Dozen: Hah. I was looking to offer this pun, decided to check whether it had been used before ... and am reminded that not only was it used before, but I explained it in the thread. :)|
