Apr-09-08  Riverbeast: I love the way Adly plays. He's creative, aggressive, sharp, and has excellent technique. I wouldn't be surprised if he joined the Super GM ranks at some point

  Once: A guilty little pleasure!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHng...

Apparently based on the Bangles' experiences of being waitresses. The pose they struck while carrying trays of food seemed to them like the way that egyptians walked in heiroglyphs.

All the old paintings on the tomb
They do the sand dance, don'cha know?
If they move too quick (Oh-Ah-Oh),
they're falling down like a domino.
And the bazaar man by the Nile
He got the money on a bet
For the crocodiles (Oh-Ah-Oh),
They snap their teeth on a cigarette.
Foreign types with their hookah pipes sing:
Oh-ah-oh-ah-ooo-aaa-ooo-aaa,
Walk like an Egyptian.

The blonde waitresses take their trays,
Spin around and they cross the floor.
They've got the moves (Oh-Ah-Oh),
You drop your drink then they bring you more.

All the school kids so sick of books,
They like the punk and the metal band.
When the buzzer rings (Oh-Ah-Oh),
They're walking like an Egyptian.
All the kids in the marketplace say:
Oh-ah-oh-ah-ooo-aaa-ooo-aaa,
Walk like an Egyptian.

Line your feet astreet, bend your back,
Shift your arm, then you pull a clock.
Like Sergeant O (Oh-Ah-Oh),
So strike a pose on a Cadillac.

If you want to find all the cops,
They're hanging out in the donut shop.
They sing and dance (Oh-Ah-Oh),
They spin their clock and cruise on down the block.

All the Japanese with their Yen,
The party boys call the Kremlin.
The Chinese know (Oh-Ah-Oh),
They walk along like Egyptians.

All the cops in the donut shops say:
Oh-ah-oh-ah-ooo-aaa-ooo-aaa,
Walk like an Egyptian,
Walk like an Egyptian.

Oct-20-10  FISCHERboy: Ahmed Adly was a promising elite player before. I wonder what happened to him after winning the World Junior Championship.
Oct-20-10  SpiritedReposte: What an upset! 150 pts at this or any level is lots.
Oct-20-10  shakespeare: After analyzing this game with rybka I see chances for me! He went from +3 - absolutely winning - to a loss four years ago - reminds me of my last tournament game - hmm - maybe in 2014 :-)

Oct-20-10  scormus: A great battle. Carlsen makes a big effort after being under a lot of pressure in the middle game But I cannot understand why he didnt play 55 c7. It looks winning, what have I missed?

  Sastre: Black should be able to draw after <55.c7 Bxc7 56.bxc7+ Kd7 57.Ra7 Rc8>.
Oct-20-10  scormus: <Sastre> yes, youre right. And after 55. Bxc7 56 b7 also, as long as B avoids a blunder

  Fusilli: Great game. It looks like the tables turned a couple of times.
Oct-20-10  Aas: Strange that carlsen would play 55. b7 giving the black bishop control over the dark squares in front of the pawn. Didn't Nimzowitsch state something like if you have two connected passed pawns on the same rank, you should only advance one of the pawns if you are sure you safely can advance the other pawn to that rank as well? Carlsen must have been afraid that a bishop sac would lead to a draw, but b7 completely killed his initiative

Here's a recent win by Adly: A Adly vs V Gashimov, 2010

Oct-20-10  Naugh: Very nice game. I find the endgame, which is quite long very intriguing.
Oct-20-10  Travis Bickle: Very exciting Chess!
Oct-20-10  dark.horse: Is there an alternative to 60.Nxe4 that preserves the N?

Oct-21-13  tranquilsimplicity: This game shows Ahmed Adly is a Chess player worthy to join the elites. I noticed Adly after he destroyed a GM rated 200+ points above Adly. And Adly did it in such fine style, it was a breathtaking tactical finish. The game was a French opening where Adly played the simple but solid King's Indian Attack albeit with venomous finesse. The GM on the receiving end was the illustrious Viktor Laznicka. It is a pity we have not seen more of Adly's great talent.#

66...Rb1+ 67.Kd2 Ba5#

Stop it, you’re making my sides hurt! Are you going to post some version of this delightful and witty post on every one of Carlsen’s losses?

Yes, correct, this is the actual plan. Also, please check my collection, Game Collection: Messiah's favorite games.

  master8ch: Starting with his 19th move, couldn't Black have won a piece by advancing his h-pawn twice, first driving the White knight to h2 and then attacking the bishop that, thanks to the knight move, would have had nowhere to run?

It doesn't win a piece, e.g.: 19...h5 20.Bd3 Nf4 21.Bxf4 Rxf4 leaves the position level,

or if, 19...h5 20. Bd3 Nge7 21. Nh2 h4 22. Qh5 and white is infiltrating the light squares.
