Nov-19-02  morphynoman2: One of the best Nezhmet magic games!
Nov-19-02  drukenknight: has anybody tried to cover the check w/ 6...Nd7?

STeinitz would recommend 8 Nh3

what about 8 Nxf7 why is white so reticent to part w/ material after black blows up his q side pawns? Black disconnects 3 pawns, but apparently he is fine, but white can't part w/ a N vs 2 pawns.

Nov-19-02  refutor: drukenknight...

not 6. ... Nd7 but 6. ... Bd7 has been played by many masters (and is my line too). the main line of this may be good for black, but is very difficult to play (i find anyways) 6. ... Bd7 is good enough and alot easier to play for my simple was played recently in Short vs Xie Jun, 2002 i started a discussion there on the line (which no one followed up) so if you'd like to discuss it there, please do :)

Dec-10-05  Resignation Trap: White resigned in view of 28.Bf3 g2+! 29.Qxg2 Rd3 30.Nd2 Rxd2 . This game won the Second Brilliancy Prize.
Dec-10-05  suenteus po 147: <Resignation Trap> Did Nezmehtdinov win all the brilliancy prizes at this tournment? :)
Oct-03-12  henjutsu: What if 28. Qf3?

  Benzol: <henjutsu> <What if 28. Qf3?>

28.Qf3 g2+ 29.Kxg2 Nf5+ 30.Kf1 Rh3 31.Qf2 Ncd3 should win for Black.

Oct-03-12  Tullius: <henjutsu>,<Benzol> Also possible 28.Qf3 Nf4 29.Qxg3 Nfd3+ 30.Kg1 Nxe1 and now White cannot recapture because after 31.Qxe1 Qg4+ he will lose his Queen.

  zydeco: A cute line is 21.Bxc6 Qxc6 22.Qxg4 h3! winning.

According to the book Super-Nezh, white's best chance was 21.Bg2 hxg3 22.hxg3 Qf5, although black has a very strong attack.

15....h5! is the star move.
