Jan-27-04  rafaelluiz: did Nezh really exist?
May-31-04  Brian Watson: I like the way Nezhmetdinov defends against h5-f3 with counter threats, instead of meekly advancing h6.

For example, after 11..Qb6 12.h5 Be4 13.f3 Qxd4 and the dual threat of Qxe5 and Bxc3+ would recover the piece.

Castling does not reinstate the threat: 13.h5 Be4 14.Nxc6 bxc6 (not 14.f3 Qxd4+)15.Ba4 Qa5 16.Bb3 Bxc3 17.Bxc3 Qxc3 . . .

Na5 doesn't do it: 14.h5 Be4 15.f3 a3 . . .

And not a3-b4 either: 16.h5 Bxe5 17.dxe5 Be4 (not 17.hxg6 Bh2+) 18.f3? Qxe5 19.Bb2 Qg3+ 20.Kh1? Qxg4, or otherwise just 20.Qg2 Qxg2+ 21.Kxg2 Bxc2

There were some real star moves in this miniature. 17..h5!, giving up the exchange in return for control of f5 (and incidentally placing the queen on a dangerous diagonal). 20..Nxd4, eschewing the exchange. 21..e5, brazenly opening a file against his own king, but simultaneously defending the knight and opening the c8-h3 diagonal.

Sep-17-04  Knight13: 25. ♕g1 would be better. If 25... ♘f3 check, then 26. ♖xf3.
Sep-17-04  samvega: 25.Qg1?? Qxh4#
Sep-17-04  samvega: nice windmill
Sep-17-04  Giancarlo: <knight13> you got refuted by <samvega>!! lol. yes, nice windmill, like the one in "Fischer and D.Byrne."
Jan-02-05  Whitehat1963: Nezhmetdinov handles the opening of the day smoothly and finishes with a flourish. Crushing.
Oct-22-18  graphvariety: After Nezh played 17... h5, I do wonder whether Mr. Khromov thought to himself, "I'm about to get posterized."
Jul-29-19  Bobo2002: Las dos variantes, que hacen abandonar al blanco:1) 26 Dxf3,Axf3, y las blancas quedan perdidas, ya que la ventaja negra es de -4.06 por Stockfish.2) 26) Rh1,será mate en 5 con 26 ... Cxg5 jaque.27 Df3, Cxf3.28 Tf2,Cxe5 jaque.29 Rh2,Dxh4 jaque.30 Rg1, Dh1 jaque mate.
Jul-29-19  Bobo2002: 17 ...h5!, aquí se impone el sacrificio de calidad, con idea de penetrar al flanco Rey de las blancas, el futuro de la partida, y el triunfo de las negras, se puede observar fácilmente en la partida misma. Muy buena, la jugada 17 ... h5!
