Jul-24-06  doremi: Nobody is kibitzing at the ladies' section, but the interesting endgame Atalik - Muzychuk is worth watching
Jul-24-06  Marmot PFL: My cat is 18, so what? Everyone gets old. He is smart though.
Jul-24-06  Marmot PFL: I guess that line with the passed h pawn gave white a perp, otherwise it looked good. I don't see the win here though.

  tamar: 51 Qa2 was better, now Morozevich should spring into action.
Jul-24-06  Marmot PFL: Mybe no answer to Qf1. Any white rook move black can force the same position and play Qf1 anyway. No place for king to hide.
Jul-24-06  percyblakeney: Finally looks as if it should be over now...
Jul-24-06  doremi: PFL, keep your cat indoors, even 18 year olds still kill songbirds, moreover, you prevent her from being run over by a car
Jul-24-06  Marmot PFL: Qf7 at least stop Qb3ch in some lines but hard to believe it holds
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: This game will forever be associated with Marmot's cat.
Jul-24-06  weary willy: What's special about songbirds ... are they of more value than the chirpy sort - or the chickens entrails that the cat eats. Keep a cat indoors?!? Rowlocks!
Jul-24-06  Marmot PFL: I have fenced in yard. believe me it would have to be very old bird for him to catch it.
Jul-24-06  Marmot PFL: Three decisive games wow. probably means 3 draws tomorrow.
Jul-24-06  Marmot PFL: Ke3 Qb6+ Kd3 Qd4 mate, sweet.
Jul-24-06  weary willy: <Ke3 Qb6+ Kd3 Qd4 mate, sweet> .... Rd8 I think?!

  PhilFeeley: <.... Rd8 I think?!> Why bother when Qc3 is mate
Jul-24-06  bob000: Qd4?? Qxd4
The threat was Qb6+ Kd3 Qb3+ Kd2 Qc3+ Kd1 Qc1#
Jul-24-06  weary willy: You're right of course Bob - my mistake
Jul-24-06  weary willy: <PhilFeeley: <.... Rd8 I think?!> Why bother when Qc3 is mate> - but impossible after ...Qb6 ... but you're quite right about the mate, of course
Jul-24-06  Marmot PFL: <Qd4?? Qxd4> Yes, mjust be kibbing blindfold today...the Rd8 line wins too of course
Premium Chessgames Member Thanks to everybody for participating today. Tomorrow's feature game will be Carlsen vs Morozevich, 2006. The action starts at 8:00am USA/Eastern time.
Jul-24-06  Runemaster: In a year or so I'd like this to be Game of the Day with the crptic title "Marmot's Cat". That would have everyone guessing.

54. Ke3 Qb6+
55. Kd2 Qb4+
56. Ke3 Qc5+
