  Honza Cervenka: 15...b5 was a blunder.
Oct-08-03  luckybaer: What does anyone think about 7.Qa4 instead of 7.Bxd7?
Oct-08-03  luckybaer: Also, what in the world was 8...e6, anyway?
Oct-08-03  luckybaer: What about 12...Bxd5 13.Nfe5 Rc8 14.c3 h6 15. Bxf6 Bxf6.
Oct-08-03  luckybaer: You're right, Honza. It was a blunder. I'm thinking 15...Qf6 16.Qxf6 Nxf6 would at least keep Black's hopes alive. 15...b5? Ouch! Well, easy to identify mistakes after the fact, eh? :-)

Actually, more often than not, I'm still left with my head swimming!

Jul-22-05  notyetagm: Wow, a modern-day version of the famous Bronstein vs Uhlmann, 1971 combination, where the threat of winning 2 pawns for nothing by 15 ♘xe6! fxe6 16 ♕xe6+ ♔h8 17 ♕xc6 forced Uhlmann to resign after 15 moves.

Here Rublevsky plays the <exact same combination> with with 16 ♘xe6! fxe6 17 ♕xe6+ ♔h8 18 ♕xc6.

<Lesson learned: if your opponent has an undefended piece (Uhlmann's c6-♘, Vorobiov's c6-♗), find a way to get at the enemy king so you can win the piece by a double attack with a mate threat or a double attack with check.> The undefended piece is one target, make the enemy king the second target and you've got yourself a fork.
