Mar-06-19  Straclonoor: Ridiculuos game!
I see to ways
1) Gamescore wrong
2) Timoshchenko and Pigusov both were drunk

34.Rfe1?? Nf6?? (34....Qxd6!)

35....Qg6?? one time in the game, when black could won.

Analysis by Stockfish 080219 64 POPCNT:

-+ (-18.47): 35...Ng4+ 36.Kg3 Qxd6 37.hxg4 Rf8 38.Re4 Qxa3+ 39.Re3 Qd6 40.Rf3 Bxd5 41.Bg1 Bc1 42.Bd4+ Kg8 43.Be5 Qc5 44.Rxd5 Qxd5 45.Rf2 Bd2 46.Kh2 Be3 47.Rf1 Qe4 48.Kg3 Bd2 49.g6 Be1+ 50.Rxe1 Qxe1+ 51.Kg2 Qe3 52.Bc7 Rxf4

36.Re6? also won but not so fast like 36.exf6+

Analysis by Stockfish 080219 64 POPCNT:

+- (#16): 36.gxf6+ Qxf6 37.Re6 Qf8 38.Rg1+ Kh7 39.Re7+ Kh8 40.Rxg8+ Kxg8 41.Qe6+ Kh8 42.Re8 Kg7 43.Rxf8 Kxf8 44.Bc5+ Kg7 45.f5 Kh8 46.f6 Bc1 47.Qf7 Bf4+ 48.Kg1 Bh6 49.Qg6 Bxd5 50.Qxh6+ Kg8 51.Qg7#

38.Rxf6?? last mistake in the game. After 38.exf6+ white should win as well.

Mar-06-19  zanzibar: <Straclonoor> did you check for a version of this game on RUSbase?

Or on <CB> online (or <NIC>?).

Always have to be wary round 'chere.

Mar-06-19  zanzibar: Actually, I looked at <CB> and it has the same score.

Got a chance to load the game into SCID for a look, and I think there's a simple fix - 32...Kg7 is wrong, and should be replaced by 32...Qg7.

White misses a hard-to-find 36.Qb4, and Black had better on move 33... (33...Ng5 is a tough find, though 33...Bc8 is also worth a look).

Still, all the play makes sense with that one alteration, and seems the likely explanation.


Mar-07-19  Straclonoor: In RUSbase same version like in <CB> and <CG>.

I have one more idea - in end 1986 - begin 1987 I bought a few issues of Erevan's chess club bulletin.

Some games of 1st League US Championship tournaments (in Kyibishev and Irkutsk) published there.

I'll try to find this bulletins in parents residence and check up gamescore.

Mar-07-19  zanzibar: <Straclonoor> for completeness, <NIC> also has the same - 32...Kg7.


Mar-14-19  Straclonoor: <and should be replaced by 32...Qg7> You totally right!

Hats off to you <zanzibar>!

This game printed in 'Chess tornaments and matches. Special bulletin of 'Chess Armenia' #4 1987.

Moves from 32th as follows
< 32.Rcd1 Qg7 33.g4 Bxb2 34.Rfe1 Nf6 35.g5 Qg6 36.Re6 Qc2 37.Rf1 Qf5 38.Rxf6 Bxf6 39.Qxf6+ Qxf6 40.gxf6 Bxd5 Draw>

Mar-18-19  zanzibar: <Straclonoor> - as much as it's nice to be right, it's so much better to be right with a source!

In this case yours, gg digging that out.
