Jan-16-06  DeepBlade: Really nice candidate for Game Of The day, dont you think <Chessgames> ?

You dont even have to think about the pun, ''Max Payne'' ;)

The first sacrifice (9.Bd3) was really nice, the King doesnt have enough space, so he must submit to the combination 10.Bg6+ and 11.Qxg5+ 23. Qe6+ fork and Black is game over. Really like the suicidal Queen, because the 2 passed pawns will get the job done. Also 18.Nxd5+ is a big tactical shot because of 18...Qxd5 19.exf6+ gxf6 20.Qxd5. In this game 20.fxg7+ would be big trouble for Black!

Black was really cramped with pins and 3 advanced pawns, I really like 14.0-0-0, it gets the Rook out, supports the deadly pawnchain on the 5th rank(!) and pushes great pressure on the steamrolled Kingside. Did anyone get the license number of that truck?

  Eric Schiller: <deepblade>It was a fun game in my pet line against the French. It required patience to leave the Nf6 on the board for so long, but my pawns were determined to achieve promotion.

  FSR: Eric Schiller could well have said after this game, "It's my destiny to be the King of Payne."
