  OhioChessFan: <Could something similar be done for chessplayers?>

<Rama>, I recall a book that took 5 players-Alekheine, Lasker, Capa, Fischer and Morphy?- and compared them in different areas. Strategy, tactics, defense, etc. It wasn't worth the paper it was written on, since it tried to give each player an area they'd win. One point I think is missed is that the days of a Tal are probably gone now that computer analysis is here. Too many magical saves of hopeless looking positions have proven that there's nearly always hope, though it still must be found OTB.

  OhioChessFan: A question to someone qualified. What exactly was Kasim thinking about for 80 minutes? Was he going thru a series of possible lines, move by move? Was he just working up the nerve to make the move? Something else?
Oct-15-05  bob000: SuperGM's don't play a move that looks good at the first possible moment. In particular, if the move is commital they they will analyze as deeply as possible since there is no turning back. In many lines where the amateur sees unclear, with compensation for material, the superGM evaluates it as clearly better for the attacker or the defender.
Oct-17-05  LIFE Master AJ: true
Oct-17-05  misguidedaggression: <tpstardefender> <You seem like a very nice person, when not dealing with them.>

You really are new to this site! It's the other way around, trust me. In fact, I used to be a decent chessplayer. Now I just troll around the AJ Goldsby page waiting for a fight to break out.

  kevin86: GOTD-a draw! A funny game with odd exchanges and stuff-but not worthy of a GOTD:(
Jul-24-06  DCP23: <kevin86> <-but not worthy of a GOTD:(>

For the record, my vote is for this game to be called Game Of The Year, certainly nothing less.

I was fascinated beyond words when I saw this game in real time.

  kevin86: After furthur review:this game does have a lot of luster to it! Especially the mate threat which forces white to give up the bishop: If 34 ♗h3?? ♖b2+ 35 ♔a1 ♖a2+ 36 ♔b1 ♘c3+ 37 ♔c1 ♖c2#

or its echo:35♔c1 ♖c2+ 36 ♔b1 ♘c3+ 37 ♔a1 ♖a2#

That in itself is rated a big applause!

Jul-24-06  PRYNCYPALIUSZ: Nice game. In my opinion English attack in Sicilian Defense is worst for black.
Jan-14-07  viv001: kevin86,if 36 king b1, Nc3+ then 37 R x c3????
Mar-11-08  positionalgenius: Top game from two strong players
Mar-11-08  mistreaver: <SuperGM's don't play a move that looks good at the first possible moment.> That reminds me on Tartakower's words:
" If you find a good move wait, don't play it.You might find better one." Or was it Lasker's qotation i don't remember
Mar-11-08  suenteus po 147: <mistreaver> It was Lasker.
Jan-13-09  WhiteRook48: he swindles into another draw
Jan-25-09  WhiteRook48: and a great svindle
Jan-30-09  WhiteRook48: amazing game
Mar-31-09  WhiteRook48: 34 Rd3 hangs a piece
Apr-16-09  soberknight: Great game, just read about it on chesscafe.com.
Apr-16-09  soberknight: Kasimdzhanov's analysis cited on chesscafe book review article:

"30fxe6!!

30...Bd3+ 31.Rxd3 Nxd3 32.Bg3! fxe6 33.Nxe6 Rf5 34.Rd1; 30...Nxc7 31.exf7+ Rxf7 (31...Kh8 32.Nxb5 Nxb5 33.Rxd5 Ra5 (33...Rac8 34.Rc1 ) 34.Re1 Nc7 35.Re8! Nxe8 36.Rd8 ) 32.Nxb5 Nxb5 33.Bxd5 ; 30...Nxe6 31.Nxb5 N8xc7 32.Nxc7 Nxc7 33.Rd3"

  perfidious: <mistreaver: <SuperGM's don't play a move that looks good at the first possible moment.>

When Kasparov was a student of Botvinnik's, Mikhail Moiseevich had to rein in the lad's impulsiveness-a little, anyway-by telling him to reflect before he acted, else he would become a Taimanov or Larsen.

Oct-01-14  SpiritedReposte: <When you see a good move, look for a better one> Golden advice from Lasker I believe.
