|Jan-24-06|| ||Yelena Dembo: Yes I do have many games, the ones my dad wrote in a notebook during my games as I couldnt write down the moves back then:)!|
jackmandoo: I am trying to imagine my 3year old playing chess. Apparently miss Dembo started at 3 years and 9 months. Yelena do you have any games from when you were really little?
|Jan-24-06|| ||Yelena Dembo: Yes it really could:))
KarpowBG: By the way the puzzle could be set a move earlier - before 41.RxD5,making it a bit harder to be solved:)
|Jan-24-06|| ||Yelena Dembo: After 58.d8Q Bx and Kh4 winning the pawn and the game!:) Not so difficult believe me:) |
Stonewaller2: Another "boring, pointless endgame" to upset His Imperial Russian Majesty. C'mon, CZAR, tell us how you'd win after 58. d8=. ;)
|Jan-24-06|| ||Stonewaller2: Ah, I see it now, thanks: White's ♔ can't move to f6, into check, as long as your ♙ stays on g7, so: 58. d8=♕? ♗xd8 59. ♔xd8 ♔h4 60. ♔e7 ♔xh3 61. ♔e6 g5 etc.|
Another fine point for we students is that after 53. ... ♕c4+ 54. ♔d6? ♕f4+ wins the White ♕.
|Jan-24-06|| ||Stelling: Very well done!!
It would be really nicer if the puzzle started right after 41. Qc7 though.
Actually it looks like Nelson was looking forward to this position when he played 39. Rxg2.
|Jan-24-06|| ||mr j: bravo <Yelena> queen sac on move 18! awsome!|
|Jan-24-06|| ||Richard Taylor: <Benzol> I'm not so easy on the eye in my devil guise - but you are only an eye!! Lol. |
Ray Keene is a nice chap and all that but I prefer loking at Yelena!!
|Jan-24-06|| ||goldthread: Very nice combination but one wonders why white "pardoned" the e pawn on move 24 by going Rg1.|
|Jan-24-06|| ||Kaidra: WOW! What an awsome game and great finish.|
|Jan-24-06|| ||dzechiel: Pretty combination, but I saw it in a microsecond. White must have seen it coming after 41...Rxd5 but decided to take the two rooks for the queen and see what could be done with the pawns. The ending is pure technique, well executed by black.|
|Jan-24-06|| ||al wazir: <Yelena Dembo>: If you reply to every message you get, you're going to have to give up sleep. But please reply to one more, this one.|
Earlier I posted what seems to me a more straightforward win: 56...Kf7 57. Kc8 (57. Kb8 Ke7 58. Kc8 g5) Ke7 58. a4 g6.
If it isn't a win, what's wrong? And if it is a win, why didn't you play it?
|Jan-25-06|| ||Yelena Dembo: Hi <goldthreat>. If 24.Qxe5 Rc5 and black gets a lot of piece activity!|
|Jan-25-06|| ||Yelena Dembo: Hi <al-wazir>. I didnt like it as much as the other one as it is very slow. I thought that after some ...f4 white will resign.|
|Jan-25-06|| ||Yelena Dembo: Thanks <Kaidra>!:))|
|Jan-25-06|| ||kevin86: Note:TSAR is the better spelling,it appears as more like TSAP in cyrillic,but nowhere like CZAR.|
|Jan-25-06|| ||Stonewaller2: Tell it to User: CZAR. BTW it actually looks more like U,CAP. HeT?|
|Jan-26-06|| ||Stonewaller2: <kevin 86: I'm more methodical-I would have taken the d-pawn and then the h-pawn.> I think there's method to Yelena's madness. Note how after 50. ♔e4 ♔g5 the White monarch is too far from his passers. Even on 51. h4+ ♔xh4 52. ♔xf4 g5+, etc., the g-♙ Queens -- with check after ♔c6 followed by b6, ♗xb6; ♔xb6, g1=♕+. (In this line 51. ... ♔g4 is probably better.)|
Hairy perhaps, but an endgame that repays close attention.
|Jan-28-06|| ||blingice: I saw this quite quickly. Must be the Susan Polgar book!|
|Jan-30-06|| ||patzer2: Black's 42...Rxc3+! sets up a winning discovered attack to win the Black Queen and the game.|
|Feb-14-06|| ||Stonewaller2: <WGM/IM Dembo: After 58.d8Q Bx and Kh4 winning the pawn and the game!:) Not so difficult believe me :)> OK, so now tell us whether you calculated that before you played move 42, or waited until move 45 . . . ;) In any case we can't argue with results, can we? ;) Thanks for a nice game!|
|Feb-14-06|| ||Yelena Dembo: <Stonewaller2> I waited till move 45:)) Generally it was easy to predict that this endgame is just lost:)|
|Feb-15-06|| ||Stonewaller2: To paraphrase Sen~or Wences (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Senor_...), "easy for you, dee-ffee-cult for me!" ;)|
|Jul-13-08|| ||myschkin: Ryan Emmett:- Is there a particular game which you consider to be your best?
Yelena Dembo:- I would pick my game against FM Castaneda in 2001.|

|Jul-13-10|| ||Dres1: but i think white was better throughout the game|
|Dec-08-12|| ||vinidivici: WOW, i wonder when this game could become GOTD!!!!|
