Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-26-04  Knezh: A fine effort by Albin Planinc.
Nov-12-04  sprout: Playing such game like that against a respected GM like Milan Matulovic was really outrageous. Now at the present game of Super GM u may not be able to one like this game. Player just applying to the board what they had read and saw (not learn) from the computer chess program.
Jan-12-05  TheAussiePatzer: and of course the last move is mate. fantastic stuff, i wonder how sound it all is...
Jan-12-05  ughaibu: Sprout: have you any evidence for that assertion?
Jan-12-05  TheAussiePatzer: 25...g5 seems to make it too easy. Better is 25...Be6 26. g4 Ng7 (forced) when it's all gonna come off the board with something like 27.Ne7 b5 28.Nxg8 Rxg8 29.fxg7+ Rxg7

At least that avoids the disaster.

Jan-12-05  drukenknight: actually the problem comes later, Mata. had the right idea, he appears to have played ...Be6 one move too late.
Nov-12-05  mynameisrandy: I don't understand why black can't play 20... exd4. Help?
Nov-12-05  Resignation Trap: <mynameisrandy> On 20...exd4 21.Qh6 f6 22.fxg6 hxg6 23.Qxg6+ Kh8 24.Bh5! with the cruel threat of 25.Qh6+ Kg8 26.Ne7#
Nov-14-05  mynameisrandy: Geez... alright, thank you Resignation Trap.

  offramp: <mynameisrandy> Thanks for your brilliant collection about the USSR-RoW match in 1970. I may be posting a Rapidshare link about it soon.
May-25-08  Takya Kotov: This is just one example of why I have long had a soft spot for Planinc and why he is one of my all time favourite players, despite not being a "big" name.
Feb-06-09  darook: Another nice move White could have played is: 27. Qxg6
May-26-12  DanielBryant: What a wonderful attack.
Sep-19-18  TranscendentRook: <darook>
I also thought about this move for some time, but I think it doesn't work quite well, beacuase while 27..hxg6 is obviously checkmate 27...fxg6 28.f7 Nf6 29.f8=Q+ Ng8 (29.Nxf6 Kg7) 30.Ne7 Be6 ...and white has no threats anymore while his queen is attacked
Sep-19-18  whiteshark: <27.Qxg6 fxg6 28.f7 Nf6 29.f8=Q+ Ng8> should win, too:
