Feb-08-07  DanRoss53: Word can spread pretty quickly in the chess world... here's the no-longer-a-novelty 15. d5! being used less than two weeks after this game: Glek vs J Willemze, 2003
Feb-08-07  Notagm: What if 15...Nxd5, as in this case, black doesn't surrender the f5 square?
Feb-08-07  BadTemper: i dont understand that 15.d5 at all. someone pleaaaase help
Feb-08-07  square dance: it opens up the e-file which makes the Bxh6 sac work after Nf5, threatening Be7 and the pawn on h6.
Feb-08-07  TrueFiendish: <Notagm> check aazqua's post just above. Seems to make sense.
Feb-09-07  BadTemper: Can someone translate those russian annotations?

I still don't really see anything concrete after 15..Nxd5

Feb-09-07  Notagm: How do we know d5 is such a great move? After all, the fact that White won doesn't mean that the win was attributable to this move. The fact that leading engines don't find it may suggest the move is second rate. And in the game Glek v Willemze, white only drew, despite outrating his opponent by 175 points.
Feb-10-07  Ulhumbrus: <BadTemper: i dont understand that 15.d5 at all. someone pleaaaase help> At the very least, by opening the e file, 15 d5 causes Nf5 to be played with tempo because then after Nf5 the Be7 is attacked by a second piece- the Q e2- and not just by one, the N on f5. So as the Be7 is defended only once, Black has to spend a move on defending it. Now defending the bishop does something useful for the B, but if it does not also do something useful to defend against the threat of Nf5xh6+, it can be said to say "pass" with respect to doing something to defend against the threat of Nf5xh6+. So we can say that d5 has the eventual effect of making Black say "pass" with respect to doing something to defend against the threat of Nf5xh6+ following Nf5. However this effect of d5 does not show itself immediately, so it is less obvious than any effect of d5 which does show itself immediately.

  Gilmoy: This idea of <something>d5, deflecting e6 for Nf5, with a double on Be7 and K-side attack, is also thematic in Sicilian Najdorf, where White sometimes offers the 12.Nd5 sac, e.g. M Brodsky vs V Mudrov, 1995:

It doesn't win by force there, either (Black can accept, then defend with Kf8! Re8! Rg8!), but it tests Black's nerves and/or memorization.

Dec-15-08  eaglewing: Is 29. ... Ne4 the last error of Black?
Or could Black be saved even later? It seems to me 29. Ka4 Rb4+ 30. Ka3 Be5 31. Rb1 (Nd4 Bxd4 Rxd4 Rxd4) Reb8 should be fine for Black (give Nf6 for possible h6-h7). Or did I overlook something?

  whiteshark: That isn't half baad.
Dec-15-08  ruelas007: Baad u r Jobava..

  whiteshark: Evgeny got a baad break.
Dec-15-08  Samagonka: Must have been painful for Bareev to loose this one after employing such sacrificial tactics.
Dec-15-08  chesskingqph: Should it be 32. Kb3 if 32... Nd4+?
Dec-15-08  PinnedPiece: 22.Nf5! What a move. Great find. As a result, Black has to throw sand in the air trying to doesn't work.

Dec-15-08  WhiteRook48: Bareev went baad. Also wasn't Bareev that guy who lost to Karpov with 34. ... Ba7?????????
Dec-15-08  blueofnoon: They say Caro-Kann is the safe opening, but after seeing games like this I am not convinced.
