Apr-03-05  thesonicvision: the combination starting from 17.Bb5+ is beautiful...

After 18 Re1+, if 18...Kd7
19. Qb7+ Qc7
20. Re7+ and black must lose the queen.

Apr-03-05  iron maiden: Very nice series of deflection sacrifices here.
Apr-03-05  Dick Brain: <the combination starting from 17.Bb5+ is beautiful...> and that unusual but devistating point of the combination, 20 Re7, leaving Black fatally paralyzed is like one of Alekhine's.
Apr-03-05  Seraphina: Great stff here! The whole game is a reminder that one should first secure the king, then attack (esp if the position is under attack). Hardicsay's meanderings in the center, and Bd4 seem out of place considering his own king is so vulnerable. 10....Bg4 followed by 0-0 might have been safer.
Apr-03-05  kevinatcausa: Black never once moved either of his rooks, his queen's knight, or his queen (until he was absolutely forced to at move 21).

Of the three pieces he spent most of his time moving, two of them were exchanged off fairly early.

Apr-03-05  Boomie: Lovely combo by the 16 year old lass. 8...Bg7? sets the table. Every self respecting Benoni player lusts for 8...b5.

  vonKrolock: In a more recent Game whith the same position been achieved whith a different order of moves Zsuzsa Polgar vs Sax, 1992 <Susan> prefered 9.h3: highly interesting Game too

Maybe the last word about the 9.Qa4 variation was not yet been proferred - all the classical examples displayed here are from the 80's

Apr-03-05  mymt: Blacks exchange sac,starting with 10. ...Bg4 came unstuck.Was it 13.Rc1 he didnt see,expecting maybe 13.gxf3 Nxc3 14.bxc3 Bxc3+? Still avery good "king stranded " attack by Susan.

  kevin86: The obvious,inescapable threat is :KNIGHT to Foxtrot SIX=checkmate!!

  tpstar: <kevin86> Bravo, Yankee Papa! Let's do the Whiskey Tango, and award the Victor an Oscar for her X-Ray vision!

Sorry Charlie, I'm on the Mike. After Romeo and Juliet did a Kilo at the Hotel India in the Lima Delta, then Alpha male Zulu played Golf in Uniform at the Quebec Sierra in November.

Is there an Echo in here? ;>D

Apr-03-05  BipolarChessorder: looks like 21. Rxd7 wins as well. Black might get in a few checks with his Queen though, and I guess 21. Qxb8 is more elegant.

  solardog: I cannot imagine playing a game like this. I know that there is theory here, but it seems so wild and unbalanced. I admire the bravery.
Apr-03-05  resty: why not play 11...Nd7 instead? am just a beginner, plase explain and let me learn.

  crafty: 11...♘bd7 12. ♗xd6 ♗f8 13. ♗c7 ♕c8 14. ♕c6 ♗e7 15. O-O-O   (eval 3.25; depth 13 ply; 150M nodes)
Apr-04-05  resty: thanks CRAFTY!
Apr-23-05  pantlko: very good combination by zsuzaa........beauty with brain........ideal combination......
Jun-30-05  aw1988: I truly am getting sick and tired of seeing the constant gawking at all the female players.

  tpstar: <aw1988> You're absolutely right. Let's gawk at the male players for a spell.

Ooooh, Korchnoi, what hot property!

Leko's just so dreamy!

Peter Hardicsay, is he a cutie? Hard-ta-say!

j/k ;>D

Jun-30-05  underrated: I personally think this ‘brains’ that <pantlko> is referring to are not the kind I prefer in a woman. As stereotypical as it sounds I find woman smarts more attractive than the man smarts that could be more typically associated with chess. I appreciate the intellectual differences between a man and woman’s brain.

If you find this kind of smart ideal then you might be gay…

Well I guess that’s a little extreme…

Women are beautiful because of their differences from men

Jun-30-05  samvega: <bipolar>:
Actually, I don't think 21.Rxd7 quite works: 21.Rxd7 Qg4+ 22.g3 Qxh6 23.Qxb8+ Kg7 24.Qb7... there may be a perpetual in there... The beauty of 20.Re7 is that it is an interference as well as a deflection.
Aug-27-05  blackjacki2: 21. Ne4 is also winning, right?
Jun-09-06  Polak: Might have beeen played: 9. Qa4+ Bd7 10. Qb3 Bc8 with simple repetition. Not 10...Qc7, because 11. B:d6 costs an exchange. To prolong the game black should either play 9...Kf8!?, thinking about an artificial castle, or 10...Ra7!?, an strange, but useful move.

Nov-15-06  Towershield: If 20...Bf5 then for instance 21.Qb7 Nd7 22.Ne4! Bxe4 23.Qxd7 Qxd7 24.Rxd7 f5 25.Rd8+ Kf7 26.Rxh8
Dec-14-06  DHW: Thanks for that Towershield I was wondering about 20...Bf5. You are right it doesn't hold. Great combination!
