|Jun-10-03|| ||lostemperor: I feel obliged to comment on this game of the day:) Somethingstrong, instead of 11. Ng5, 11. Kh1 (and a later Bg5) is better. Calli, I don't think that after 15. Nxb5 the pawn up is worth any trouble. And 15. cxb5 d5 doesn't look good for white either. Christiansen tried 15. Be3 against Kasparov but after 15... bxc4 16.Bxc4+ Kh8 17.Nd5 Ba6! white has not much of a center. So where can white do better? What after 22.Bxh6(!) Nf5 23.Bxg7 Nxg7 24.Qxe4 Qd4 26.Rd1. White can hold the game. |
|Jun-11-03|| ||Calli: <lostemperor> 22.Bxh6(!)is very good! A likely draw after 26...Qxe4 27. Nxe4 Rxf1 etc |
|Jan-31-04|| ||TheTurk: i love watching black trounce a 4pawns attack! |
|Nov-11-04|| ||kevin86: A fantastic finish-in fact it fits in with this week's puzzle series-double attacks.|
Note:petals can be pasted in a scrapbook-but not back on the flower.
|Nov-11-04|| ||Sneaky: Every time a bell rings, an angel gets a norm. ;-) |
|Nov-11-04|| ||mahmoudkubba: why not continuing?? I find no reason for white to resign at this stage of playing.. white can fight till the real end comes either wining for black or anything else! |
|Nov-11-04|| ||paulalbert: What do you propose against the threatened Nf2ch which wins as far as I can see in all variations including the possibility of a nice Philidor's Legacy-Smothered Mate in one? White is totally lost in all variations, justifying resignation from what I can see. Paul Albert |
|Nov-11-04|| ||klausewitz: I agree. No way for white... |
|Nov-11-04|| ||Rogon: For instance: 30. Qc3 Nf2+ 31. Kg1 Nh3 (double check) 32. Kh1 Qg1+ 33. Rxg1 Nf3#. Notice that the immediate 30. Qg1+ would fail to Kxg1. |
|Dec-07-04|| ||Whitehat1963: Fun finish in a game that features the opening of the day. |
|Apr-18-05|| ||lostemperor: Of course the variation I gave was from Susan herself (no need to hide it now;-) as she pointed out her opponent after the game. |
|Sep-30-08|| ||PolishPentium: Any merit to the following sequence, salvaging the situation for White? >>>
29 Qxe3 Rf1+ (presumably, attempting to draw away the Rook) 30 Qg1 Rxg1+ 31 Rxg1
Black still has a sizeable material advantage, true, but with her N gone, the situation is not quite as dire for White as before.|
|Sep-30-08|| ||jovack: i love spotting potential smothered mates|
|Sep-30-08|| ||arsen387: <PolishPentium: 29 Qxe3 Rf1+ 30 Qg1 Rxg1+ 31 Rxg1> after 30.Qg1?? Qxg1 is simply a mate. but after 30..Rf1+ 31.Rxf1 Qxe3 blacks have Q+B+2pass pawns! for white's 2R and definitely winning. Very nice game by Polgar|
|Sep-30-08|| ||jack1501: i think i saw this listed as game of the day for 11/11/20004. does anyone else remember seeing this?|
|Sep-30-08|| ||newzild: A very nice GOTD today.|
|Sep-30-08|| ||hedgeh0g: <i think i saw this listed as game of the day for 11/11/20004. does anyone else remember seeing this?>|
You saw into the future?
|Sep-30-08|| ||DoubleCheck: I saw a few things before the attack of 29...Ng4!
Firstly White cant take the knight with 29. Qxe3
Since 29 Qxe3 is met with:
29. Qxe3 Rf1+ !!
30. Rxf1 Qxe3
Also after black played 26. Rf8
instead of losing the knight white should look to equal with something like 27. Ng3!? therefore;
27. Ng3 !? Nxf1
28. Rxf1 Rxf1+
Then if black plays
30. Qxc4 saves
30. Qf5+ (or Qxc4) saves
From this position white is equal with material but the only major threat left is the centre pawns
|Sep-30-08|| ||chrisowen: Too bad for white, it seems that Zsusa does hold the game like a natural.|
|Sep-30-08|| ||kevin86: It looks lie a fork or smothered mate is coming. I think white's queen is a goner.|
|Sep-30-08|| ||Once: For full points in today's trivia quiz you need to spot the classic film that the GOTD title refers to ...|
|Sep-30-08|| ||jack1501: it's a wonderful life
Ward Bond: "Hey, your mouth's bleeding. Are you sure you're all right?"
Jimmy Stewart: "What dya... Ha ha ha ha! My mouth's bleeding, Burt! My mouth's blee... Zuzu's petals! Zuzu... There they are! Burt! What do you know about that? Merry Christmas!"
and the year was 11/11/2004 in my previous post, if i could see into the future, then i'd know when i could make money on the stock market and sports!
|Oct-01-08|| ||Once: <jack1501> Take ten points, sir!|
|Oct-01-08|| ||kevin86: To add to the movie story:Zsuzsa won a flower in a contest at school. When she handed the flower to her dad,a few petals fell off. To allow her to believe he "fixed it",the dad put the petals in the waistband of his pants.|
When the dad made the deal not to have ever been born,the petals were no longer in the pants-
