Feb-29-04  Egghead: White must give up material to stop ... Nxh2+ Kg1 Qg2#.
Feb-29-04  Just Jim: After 29. Ne5 Nxh2+ 30. Kg1.
White seems to be okay, although a pawn down.
Feb-29-04  radu stancu: 29. Ne5 Nxh2+ 30. Kg1 Bxe5 31. Qxe5 Qxe5 32. Rxe5 Nf3+ (forking the king and the rook) 33. Kf1 Nxe1 34. Kxe1 Bxb2 and black wins easily. I didn't run this through any program, it's just what I see at a first glance. Feel free to improve on it. (maybe by trying to advance white's passed pawn, but I don't see how you could support it really...)
Feb-29-04  Brian Watson: 29.Nd5 Qh1+, then ..Ba6+
Feb-29-04  radu stancu: good point Brian Watson. and i seem to have made an error (probably following Just Jim's error) writing 29. Ne5 instead of 29. Nd5.

  kevin86: radu has it right;...♗a6 is quite lethal!!
Feb-29-04  radu stancu: also i don't like NOT being right, this time it was not me; it was <Brian Watson> who proposed Ba6+. so <kevin86>, please give him the credits :)

  lostemperor: Vladimir zak, although, not a topplayer, is the trainer of worldchampions like Tal and Spassky!
Premium Chessgames Member
  jaime gallegos: I thought Koblentz was the Tal's trainer
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: He was, Zak was a trainer to Spassky and Korchnoi when they were young.

  kevin86: Sorry <radu stancu,Brian Watson> I gave the wrong person the credit before. It should have gone to <Brian Watson>.I give myself a :( for my error.
Mar-01-04  bob725: What would happen if on move 28 king moved to d3 instead of f1?
Jul-09-05  hippatxu: <bob725> If 28.♔d3 ♕f5+! and now 29.♔c4 d5+ 30.♔b3 (30.♘xd5 ♗xd5+ is a nonsense) d4 winning or 28.♔e2 ♗f3+ 29.♔f1 ♕h3+ 30.♔g1 ♕g2#
Mar-01-07  bandito: hippatxu is right in the assessment, but in the line 28.Kd3 Qf5+ 29.Kc4, 29...Ne4! is crushing
Jun-25-08  Octal: <jaime gallegos> I remember reading that Nezhmetdinov was the trainer of Tal. Tal put a lot of Nezhmetdinov examples in his book, "Attack with Mikhail Tal". He also plays a lot like Tal too.
Apr-16-10  birthtimes: Botvinnik once said, "Nobody sees combinations like Rashid Nezhmetdinov." Here, Zak gets whacked, for if 28.Kd3 then 28...Qf5+ 29.Kc4 Ne4 30.Qc2 Qxe6+ 31.Nd5 a6! and this extremely quiet move loudly seals the game. And if 28.Kf1 Ng4 29.Nd5 then 29...Bd4! 30.Qxd4 cxd4 31.Rxd4 Bxd5 32.Rxd5 Rc8! 33.e7 Nxe3+ 34.Rxe3 Rc1+ 35.Re1 Qh1+ 36.Ke2 Qe4+ 37.Kd2 Qc2+ 38.Ke3 Rxe1+ 39.Kf4 Qe4+ 40.Kg5 Qxd5+ 41.Kh4 Qh5#!!!

Apr-05-15  saintdufus: <bandito: in the line 28.Kd3 Qf5+ 29.Kc4, 29...Ne4! is crushing>

True--and in every variation the key move is ...Qe6+:

30.Ne4 Qe6+ (the natural 30...Qe4+? loses to 31.Kb3) 31.Kd3 (31.Kb5 Qb3+) 31...Be4+ 32.Ke2 Qg4+ 33.Kf1 Bf3 and Black wins.

30.Qd3 Qe6+ 31.Nd5 Ba6+;

30.Qc2 Qe6+ 31.Kb5 d5 32.Nd5 (32.a5 33.Qc6#) a6+ 33.Kc4 Bd5+ 34.Rd5 b5+;

30.Qc1 Qe6+ 31.Kd3 (31.Kb5 d5 32.a5 Qc6#) 31...Be4+ 32.Kd2 (32.Ke2 Qc4+) 32...Qd5+ 33.Ke2 Qc4+ 34.Rd3 Qd3#;
