Oct-13-05  LIFE Master AJ: What a chess game!

My friend from chess club, (S. Davis) said Hao made Rogers "look like a Class C player."

And while this is probably an over-simplification, it is certainly VERY exciting and complex.

Oh, by the way. Black missed a mate!!!!!!!!! I really wish I could say I saw it on my own (first) ... but the truth is that I simply read it on the Internet. (

Oct-15-05  LIFE Master AJ: This game is now posted on my website ... IF you are really curious, you could probably find it with any search engine.
Nov-15-05  Averageguy: A brilliant game! One that certainly deserves more kibitzing. I will set aside my differences with you for now to admit that you did a very good job of annotation on your web page.

One thing I would like to say however is that you give the variation Ne4 12.Qd4 Qh4+ 13.Kd1 Nf2+ as winning material for black. But this seems to win material for white after 14.Ke2 Qxd4 15.ed Nxh1 and white will win the h1 knight with Bg2.

Nov-15-05  mymt: The mate given by is 19. ...Nc5+ 20.Kc3 [if 20.Kd4 Qe4+ 21.Kc3 Na4+ 22.Kb3 Qc2#]...Na4+ 21.Kb3 Qd1+ 22.Ka2 Qc2+ 23.Bb2 Qxb2#. But does 18. ...Nc5+ work just as well-or am I missing something? PS.Arthur Dato built the Petronus Towers in KL,[used in that Sean Connery- Zeta Jones movie] & besides being a great chess patron had a horse that won the Melbourne Cup one year! [I think]
Nov-15-05  Averageguy: <mymt>18...Nc5+ doesn't work because the mate is based on the fact that the Queen can take the White Bishop when it blocks the check on b2. With the White Queen on the a1-h8 Diagonal the Bishop will be protected when it goes to b2 to block a check from the Queen on c2. That is why the queen had to be deflected of the long diagonal.
Nov-16-05  mymt: <Averageguy> very true,it was just thrown in there to generate more comments on this game.A bit like "Open All Hours" when Arkright wrote speciol on his shop window.
Nov-17-05  LIFE Master AJ: (This game, annotated ... IF you are curious.)
