Nov-15-04  sourcerer: wall!! self destructed realy seems he new the analysis than the game what more can i say his annotations wins yet he did not play them?!!
Nov-15-04  Shams: well sourcerer, it`s a funny thing but you should know that most people play the games first and then annotate them after.
Nov-15-04  Marco65: At least this time it's against a GM. But if you click on Bill Wall, you get an incredible list of miniatures, most played against non-rated opponents. Since I couldn't find Bill/William Wall in the list of FIDE players, I really wonder why these games are in.

Policy when uploading a game:
3. We want to focus only on the best, most instructive, chess games. At least one of the players should be master-strength (2200 Elo) or better.

Nov-15-04  Alkaff: I think 28 Re4 is better. Do you agree?
Nov-15-04  sourcerer: annote or not that was poor play
Nov-15-04  mack: <Marco> This has been an issue before, but a) Wall's miniatures are fun and instructive, b) he's an author of many chess books, surely making him worthy of inclusion, and c) he's a top bloke. You can't say fairer than that.

  mahmoudkubba: <Marco65>: u can easily plant agricultural things on walls if u r a well student and good knowledgable person of Agricultural Engineering.. I thing this game is almost about such a thing and wall lost for good not for bad thing.. thats my understanding for such a think!.

we have a say in our holy Fiqhi book that one day they from nowere shall come from the walls to each 5 or 10 at least 50,000 or 100,000 person so u can do nothing to them and they shall thing we are backwards and we shall thing they r backwards so we should prepare ourselves HeeHeeHee..

  kevin86: "Mr. Gorbachev,Tear down this wall!" -Ronald Reagan

Mr. Wall tears himself down here pretty badly,practically ushering white's d-pawn through.

I like the picture at move 32 with the three bishops and rook together in a "meeting" on the seventh row.

Nov-15-04  aw1988: This game has special meaning for me because I was one of those present trying to tear down the Berlin wall.
Nov-15-04  midknightblue: I think it is really cool to learn from a 2300 who screwed up and went back to analyze, and demonstrate where he went wrong. Having said that, if I go spend money on a chess book, I will only spend on a GM book, or a subGM level player who is well known as an excellent teacher (i.e. Silman or Waitzkin). But, still - I thought this was nice analysis, and I learned something.
Nov-16-04  Marco65: <midnightblue> So is Bill Wall a 2300? FIDE Elo or USCF ELO?

<aw1988> Funny I thought 1988 was your birth date. Did you live in Berlin at that time? Which side?

Nov-16-04  aw1988: <Marco65> No, but it would be nice to be a teenager again. :) And no, I didn't live in Berlin at that time, I was there on a business trip. I was on the east side of the wall.
Nov-17-04  Marco65: <aw1988> I can just imagine the emotion of being there! Did you take a brick as a souvenir? :)
