Jul-26-05  The King Returns1: Wicked! That's all I have to say. And brutal. Chep keeps mounting the pressure on the black king until it is too much.

  tamar: Chessbase has a pictorial report on Amsterdam and particularly this game. Stellwagen appears to be in shock after the game. http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...

  tamar: <The King Returns1> Wicked! is the right word. As in wicked good.

I like Cheparinov's prescient but time consuming manoeuvering between moves 14-18, which lures Stellwagen to snatch a pawn with 19...hxg5 20 hxg5 Bxg5

No punishment yet, but there is an interlude where White plays the thematic c5 push and the knight tour Nb5-a3-c4

Then the abrupt knight sacrifice on move 25 to paralyse Black just when all his pieces are misplaced. The bishop on h6 and the knights on e8 and g8 look especially bad.

Another interlude where White's pieces go with impunity to their strongest squares (28 Qg5! 29 Bd4) I don't see any defense.

Nov-27-05  alicefujimori: This is good stuff!!

I've just looked through the site's database and realize that White's score in this line is very very good indeed.

What's interesting in this line was that Black was totally denied of any counterplay on the kingside. This is quite bad news for Black.

But...Black has a chance to deviate here. Please refer to Gabdrakhmanov-Kasparov 1976 and Larsen-Tal 1965. Although Tal lost that game it must be noted that he looked quite OK after the opening and I wouldn't be suprised if there are any better improvements to Black's play along the line.

Nov-27-05  euripides: It makes a big difference to play g4 immediately on move 12 rather than delaying two moves when Black can get in g5: Gelfand vs Kasparov, 1991

Although Tal lost that game it must be noted that he looked quite OK after the opening and I wouldn't be suprised if there are any better improvements to Black's play along the line.> In both the game you mention, Black played 11...h5, but Kasparov gives this a ?! in OMGP IV, instead he recommends Stein's move 11...Nf6, as in for example Nikitin vs Leonid Stein, 1966. After 11...Nf6! 12.Ng2 c6 13.Rb1 cxd5 14.cxd5 Bd7, Kasparov writes, 'with counterplay on both sides of the board', as i think the above mentioned game illustrates.
Jul-12-07  sanyas: A little bit like that other Tal game.
