Nov-13-05  Autoreparaturwerkbau: I love how Planinc dances with his forces here ...
Dec-06-06  ToTheDeath: 17. Qxg6!!

What a move!

Jul-07-12  Yopo: 17.Qg6check Deep Plan on elimination of bases g6 and h7.The black king blockade made all this possible.
Jul-08-12  Antiochus: Probably 14 ... f5 was the mistake. 14 ... b4 would be better, followed by a conservative f7-f6 using f7 and g5 squares to maneuver the Ne5.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: 17.Qxg6 is a stunning find, but the big question is this--how do you pronounce Black's first name?
Apr-12-14  The Last Straw: "Srdjan"

Don't have a clue.

  al wazir: If 46...Ra8, defending both threatened ♙s, then 47. f5 and Black is in zugzwang: 47...Ra6 48. Bc8 Ra8 49. Bb7.

  al wazir: <An Englishman: how do you pronounce Black's first name?> The trilled 'r' is sonant, so it sounds something like "Sirdyan."
Apr-12-14  hucknoog: An "r" is basically a vowel in Croatian that sounds like "er" with a slight roll on the end.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: <al wazir> and <hucknoog>, thanks for the help. In reexamining the game, we should all feel grateful that Marangunic shunned 10...h5. Giving Planinc an h-file in return for a mere pawn? Yikes.
Apr-12-14  morfishine: <17.Qxg6> was a pie-in-the-face move
Apr-12-14  Rookiepawn: 14... f5 seems to me a terribly optimistic move. In a classical opposite castle position you shouldn't play on your defending wing unless strictly necessary, while speeding up your attack on the other wing.

Seems like one of those "great ideas" you have when you feel suddendly bold and ready to defy general principles. "What the heck... Why not?".

I did it many times. After a few moves you quickly find out "why not".

  TheAlchemist: <Sirdyan> Not quite. The "dj" (or sometimes "đ") is pronounced as the first sound in "George" or "Joe". Basically the "djan" part is pronounced more or less the same as the "jun" in "junk".

  kevin86: White is about to usher his pawns through. Black has no defense.
Apr-12-14  pcarpane: how about 18... Kh7?
Apr-12-14  rogl: 18...Kh7 is good if you want to finish the game immediately and hit the bar. 19.exf5 and mate is unavoidable.

  Domdaniel: A Maninc, a Planinc ...
Apr-12-14  pcarpane: thank you rogl!
Apr-12-14  Knots O Mutch:

<Domdaniel: A Maninc, a Planinc ...> A canallinc to the Pacifinc!

Hwere, Pawnincs travelling the open f file to the Queeninc!
