May-03-11  Mozart72: <Jim Bartle> Stay tune. I'll type the game tomorrow.
May-03-11  Jim Bartle: You're an endless source of entertainment, mozart72.

Do you have the slightest idea how huge a complete analysis to 77 moves (the longest white can supposedly last) of 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nf3 b6 4. a3 would be? It would probably be the size of all of

Why not make that "77 moves" post on the Nigel Short page and tell him he lost from a clearly won position in the following games:

Lautier vs Short, 1996
Yusupov vs Short, 1986
Polugaevsky vs Short, 1985
Browne vs Short, 1985
Plaskett vs Short, 1984
Timman vs Short, 1982
O Cvitan vs Short, 1981
K Burger vs Short, 1981

I'm sure Mr. Short will appreciate it.

May-03-11  Mozart72: <Jim Bartle> I'll type the game at sunrise. It's only 77 moves. Black wins. And yes, Mozart was and is a source of entertaiment.
May-03-11  Jim Bartle: Type it, with all the variations?
May-03-11  Mozart72: <Jim Bartle> No, just the 77 moves. I'm entertaining, remember? Not stupid.
May-03-11  Jim Bartle: I wonder sometimes.

So you are going to show one single game from the position, no variations, and claim that's proof that black wins?

I really, really hope that with your super-exaggerated opinion of your analytic powers, that you do not play poker. The other players would leave you penniless in a few hands.

May-03-11  Mozart72: <Jim Bartle> Poker is for gun-slingers and spittoons. Chess is for your eyes only. I'll type the 77 moves tomorrow. Hasta mañana.

3. Nf3 Bg4

That's a Queen's Indian Petrosian? I think Petrosian would be surprsied to learn that. If he were still alive, that is.

May-03-11  Mozart72: <Jim Bartle> Stop fooling around. That's the beginnig of the "historic" short chess match. You Know what the QID: Petrosian Variation or Queen's Indian: Petrosian System (E12) is and where you can find it in the game.
May-03-11  Jim Bartle: A Queen's Indian without e6 OR Nf6. Right.

Plus of course, you originally said this position leads to a draw in 63 moves (riiiiiight). And now you claim it leads to a win in 77 (riiiiight).

I honestly think all your posts together at cg are meant to be a chess Borat, fooling everyone into thinking you're serious.

May-03-11  Mozart72: <Jim Bartle> Ok.

Alekhine vs Nenarova, Moskva 1907,
Queen's Indian: Petrosian (E12)

1. d4 ...
2. c4 ...
3. Nf3 ...
9. a3 ...
14. ... Nf6
16. ... e6
20. ... b6

QID: Petrosian Variation or Queen's Indian: Petrosian System (E12):

1. d4 Nf6
2. c4 e6
3. Nf3 b6
4. a3

May-03-11  Jim Bartle: So let me get this straight (typing between bouts of laughter): This game shows the QID Petrosian variation is a clear win for black because this particular game (and not a master game, a game you present as your own analysis) reaches a position you claim transposes to the Petrosian variation after 20 moves.

And there are no possible improvements for white after the standard 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nf3 b6 4. a3? A variation played named after a World Champion and played by many of the world's best players?

Really. Post this on the Nigel Short page and see what he thinks. Be sure to show him the eight games he lost from a clear winning position.

May-03-11  Mozart72: <Jim Bartle> Stop thinking standard. Why don't You post the game on Nigel Short's page and let him tell you what he thinks. Seriously.
May-03-11  lost in space: Strange discussion here.

After 10. Na4 the game is clearly won for White as the black queen is trapped. Thats for sure.

Oh, yes.

Jim, you've got a lot to learn (wink, nod).

There's no point in trying to explain to <Mozart72> that this a subvariation of the Chigorin QGD, as he'll merely quote some useless set of stats.

He tells you to 'stop thinking standard', yet posts rivers of mindless crap.

Aug-24-11  sfm: <Mozart72: I've analyzed some variations from move 10. Na4, onward. The last variation analyzed gave me a winner for Black with 77 moves.> LOL! Love it, absolutely!

  jessicafischerqueen: Repost to get it on the "front page"

<Calli: <Exactly the 10 moves were played in Tolush vs Aronson, 24th USSR Championship, Leningrad, 1957> <Sneaky Pete> Yes, that's the real game. This score was a fraud perpetrated by Grigory Bogunovich of Pittsburg, Pa who sent it in to Chess Review (September 1959, p257) along with a clearly rediculous story about the encounter. Note that it appeared shortly after Tolush-Aronson. I wonder if "Grigory Bogunovich" was a real person.>

vonKrolock: Compare to Tolush vs Aronson, 1957 Tolush vs Aronson, 1957 And read also Edward Winter's <"The Alekhine vs Nenarokov Hoax"> and <"Chess Notes"> 6354 October 2009

Jul-13-13  jinmin: Wow, this discussion is a hidden comedic gam.
Jul-13-13  Calli: Disappointed that I misspelled "ridiculous" in 2006.

  offramp: I think Mozart should've been encouraged to post more analysis.
Feb-17-16  Allanur: it too is a great game and deserves to be the game of the day.

There is room for many more characters than your gunslingers, and I have known quite a few. (laughs)
