Congratulations, you got that right.
|Mar-21-14|| ||morfishine: After 30.Rxf3 Bf1+ 31.Ke3 Qxh2 32.Bxf7+ Black is being carved up like a Turkey on either 32...Kh7 33.Ng5+ or 32...Kf8 33.Bg6+|
|Mar-21-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Was this a simul game?|
|Mar-21-14|| ||Penguincw: If only I saw it was Tal, then maybe I would've guessed a queen sacrifice (sort of).|
|Mar-21-14|| ||Dagdaletwo: Tal gave simul at Birmingham's Midland Institute where Dr. B.G.Dudley was one of his opponents. Pretty sure this was 1964.
Myself and another member Birmingham Chess Club, straight after simul drove Tal to his London hotel in a Triumph Herald Coupe !
On parting we shook hands, he was so very embarrassed by his withered hand which we had not noticed earlier. Everyone loves Tal.|
|Mar-21-14|| ||gars: Some Tal moves make me laugh out of sheer joy! There will never be another player like him.|
|Mar-21-14|| ||offramp: Brian - or "Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo" as we called him - really thought he had this game won.|
|Mar-21-14|| ||PJs Studio: I see a complex position, many active pieces, and "Tal, Marshal Attack and Difficult" on a Friday no less...hmmmm. Not going to spend to much time pounding my head up against this wall. However!!:|
My initial thought was 30.Qxh3 Qxh3 31.Rxf3...with a similar position as in the game.
Anybody care to show me how I would be dead lost with 30.Qxh3 instead if Tal's 30.Rxf3. ?
|Mar-21-14|| ||PJs Studio: 30. Qxh3 faceplants against 30...Rxe3! and white is dead busted. This position is a lot less complex once I saw the answer! ;)|
|Mar-21-14|| ||kevin86: White forces mate or win of piece with rooks, despite losing his queen.|
|Mar-21-14|| ||unferth: Tal did this in a SIMUL?
|Mar-21-14|| ||perfidious: <unferth> As he pulled off the win over Miller which was noted in <AylerKupp>'s post of 10th February.|
Beyond frigging belief.
|Mar-21-14|| ||BOSTER: Because I think that chess pieces have the same feeling as human I want to say couple words about black Queen in this game.|
Her excellency was very excited
smiling ,when she played 31...Qxh2.
What she did not understand that she was
seduced and then abandoned.
|Mar-21-14|| ||agb2002: White has a bishop, a knight and a pawn for the bishop pair.|
Black threatens 30... Bf1+, 30... Rxg3+.
The first idea that comes to mind is 30.Rc8+, trying to trade queens but after 30... Bxc8 31.Qxh5 Rxe3+ 32.Kxe3 Rxh5 33.Bxf7+ Kxf7 34.Nxd6+ Kd8 35.Nxc8 Rh6 Black seems to trap the knight.
Another idea is 30.Rxf3 to attack f7, 30... Bf1+ 31.Ke3 Qxh2 (31... Qxf3+ 32.Kxf3 Rxh2 33.Rxd6 + -) 32.Bxf7+ Kf8 (32... Kh7 33.Ng5+ Kh8 34.Rc8+ Bf8 35.Rxf8#; 32... Kh8 33.Rc8+ and again mate in two) 33.Bg6+
A) 33... Ke7 34.Rf7+ Kd8 (34... Ke8 35.Rc8#) 35.Rxd6+ Ke8 (35... Kc8 36.Bf5+ and mate in two) 36.Rf2+ wins.
B) 33... Bf4+ 34.Rxf4+ Ke7 35.Rf7+ Kd8 (35... Ke8 36.Rc8#) 36.Rd6+ transposes to A.
C) 33... Kg8 34.Rc8+ and mate next.
|Mar-21-14|| ||RedShield: <Dudley did wrong>|
|Mar-21-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: BTW, I totally missed this one ... after spending close to 35 minutes on it this morning. |
But I am not bummed, Tal was a true genius ... I am just a run-of-the-mill player, Tal was something exceptional.
|Mar-21-14|| ||sushijunkie: Tal was likely not the GREATEST player of all time, but, he was the greatest PLAYER of all time.|
|Mar-21-14|| ||Rookiepawn: Hummm... Didn't make it, but saw this:
32. Rc8+ Bf8 (32... Kh7 33. Ng5++)
And now mate comes with Rxf8 and Ng5.
Isn't this a little bit easier or I am missing something?
|Mar-22-14|| ||Patriot: White has a pawn for the bishop pair. Black threatens 30...Rxg3+ and primarily 30...Bf1+, winning the queen.|
30...Kh7 31.Qxh3 Qxh3 32.Ng5+ Kg6 33.Nxh3 Rxe3+ 34.Kxe3 Rxh3 35.Rxd6+
30...Kh7 31.Qxh3 Rxe3+ 32.Kxe3 Qxh3 33.Ng5+ Kg6 34.Nxh3
30...Bxc8 31.Qxh5 Rxe3+ 32.Kxe3 Rxh5 33.Rxd6
|Mar-22-14|| ||Patriot: Wow, I must be really tired tonight with so many mistakes.|
|Apr-03-14|| ||nazgulord: I propose "Dudley Demented" as the title for this game.|
|Oct-02-17|| ||cyclemath: I'm sorry to report that Dr Brian Dudley, of Stourbridge Chess Club, died on Saturday 30 September 2017, aged 86 years.|
|Oct-03-17|| ||Stonehenge: Interesting:
Stourbridge is a large town in the Metropolitan Borough of <Dudley>.
|Oct-05-17|| ||cyclemath: The 1974 amalgamation of Stourbridge (formerly in the county of Worcestershire) into the Dudley Metropolitan Borough (in the newly-formed county of West Midlands) still rankles with some residents.|
