Jul-10-04  shr0pshire: 19. ...Bxg2 is a bad sacrifice. Here black tries to open up the white king with a sacrifice. I just don't think that it opens as many lines as Nezh tried to forsee. 20. Bxg2 Ng3 fails because of white's blocking ablility with his knight to h3, and white's queen occupying the second rank.

Next 22. Bxb2 is a nice sack, and almost a desperation sack. With the fork of black's rooks I think it is just a little too late.

After that combination he just doesn't have the pieces to carry out mate, or to equalize. A beautiful try, but not sound.

Great play by Pachman.

Jul-10-04  shr0pshire: Actually let me try to improve on Nezh's sack. 21. ...Rxf5 puts more pressure down the f file. And just dramatically increases black's attacking chances. 21. ...h6 I think is too passive for Nezh and he needs to bring the high heat with rxf5.

i think this variation is still losing to 22. Ne3 rxd1 23. Qxd1 Qxd1, but i think it is a slight improvement.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: An odd game--both players missed simple tactics. Pachman played 13.Bf1 intending Kh2, g3 and Bd2 but he misses 13...Ng3. Rd1 sets a nasty little trap; after ...Bh3?, Bf1 (now it's good!) threatens both gxh3 and Nf6+ with a discovered attack on the Black Queen. 18...Qg4 looks forced; then 19.Ng5 traps the Bishop on h3. 19...Bg2 is the only chance to save the game, but Pachman channels the spirit of Nezhmetdinov and beats him at his own game.

  jaime gallegos: and 19... Nf4 ? what do you say Crafty ?
Feb-16-07  sitzkrieg: <jaime gallegos> This still loses for black. Main line fritz 6 : Bxf4,exf4, Nxf4 and because the queen is attacked white can take the bishop on h3 on the next move. Other winning lines start with Nxe5.

By the way, a good try for black is Ne7 instead of Rf6 and whites advantage seems to be gone. In the end, Nezmethdinov failed to win the tournament by half a point!
