Sep-20-08  Aspirador: <Can anyone analyse the game?> LOL, I guess this is an intentional joke.

Did you notice that we are on page 1066 of the thread?

Sep-25-08  Ragh: If not intended in jest, then what <A. Anderssen> probably means is that he wants a condensed version of entire 1066 pages into a "single post" analysis of the game or something like that.
Oct-03-08  Super Chess Man: Hey, but right now there is another Arno Nickel we are playing ! Do you think they are the same person, maybe ?
Oct-08-08  A. Anderssen: Super Chess Man: Hey, but right now there is another Arno Nickel we are playing ! Do you think they are the same person, maybe ?

Yes, he is the same person.

Nov-20-08  Nietzowitsch: <A. Anderssen> After this crushing defeat Arno Nickel wasn't the same as before, just a mere shadow of his former self. So how can you say <he is the same person>? This is very frivolous of you!
Jan-05-09  WhiteRook48: passed pawn!! wow!!
Jan-24-09  WhiteRook48: let's analyze this game
1. e4!! c5!! those are good so I'll get carried away and give two exclams
Jan-25-09  WhiteRook48: 2. Nf3?! e6?! Ok, these annotations were made by a patzer
Feb-01-09  WhiteRook48: 3 d4 cxd4 4 Nxd4 are okay
Feb-07-09  WhiteRook48: amazing posting on page 986
Feb-14-09  WhiteRook48: I think 40...Re1 is dubious. I would have preferred 40...Re7, but then 41. a7 is decisive anyway
Feb-15-09  WhiteRook48: 4...a6.
Hmmm. This looks odd, but that's probably because I don't have a good sense of openings
Feb-21-09  WhiteRook48: <A. Anderssen> hilarious

  Domdaniel: <WhiteRook48> This was a regular Sicilian Kan line up to move 8 or 9, then a known but slightly offbeat variation to about move 14. The next couple of moves had been seen in published analysis by Lutz (of which both sides were aware) -- but never tried in a significant game. After that we were on our own.

If you don't have a good sense of openings to the extent that an early ...a6 in the Sicilian surprises you, I suggest you either (a) avoid the Sicilian, or (b) play through more games in this line.

  Check It Out: 36.b4 is such a great move. I bet that shook up Arno Nickel quite a bit when he turned on the computer to get the latest move.
Jan-23-14  twinlark: Time for this year's comment! I'm still admiring <18. Qd2>.

  OhioChessFan: While playing this game, I was so totally absorbed in it I could have told you everything going on at every ply. Now I look at it, and it seems like a Sunday Puzzle of the Day each move and I'd have no idea how to proceed.

  OhioChessFan: And many thanks to to <Titicamara> <Penguincw> and <CIO> for keeping the streak of at least one post a year alive.

  chancho: I was looking through some of the old posts and saw this name from the past:

User: tefthepersian

His last post was in the Timmerman game, and he said he would respond to questions to his analysis, but he never did.

I hope he is doing well.

  Ron: One of the things I'm fascinated about this game are the moves 28. h3 and 29. Kh2. If memory serves, these moves were advocated by Thorsson, and won by a landslide vote. These moves might not have been the top computer choice.

These moves are Karpovian. Karpov makes quiet moves like a3 or h3 and then his opponent's positions collapses a couple of moves later.

Maybe 28. h3 and 29. Kh2 are waiting moves which put our esteemed opponent in a kind of zugzwang.
