Jan-18-11  Cardinal Fang: Pre-handshake Cheparinov is awesome, like pre-'Unforgettable Fire' U2.
Jan-18-11  Jim Bartle: So you're saying the Fire was Forgettable?
Jan-18-11  Cardinal Fang: Yes. Once they had realised just how good they were, they were never the same again.
Jan-18-11  mastermind7994: Nice tactical game!
Jan-18-11  belgradegambit: Somehow I just knew <Phony Benoni> would like this game.
Jan-18-11  dvilet: Did this game set a record for checks per move? Jeez Ivanov had to move his king a lot.
Jan-18-11  AylerKupp: Sigh ... another quiet, dull Benoni.

Jan-18-11  gars: <AylerKupp> is one hundred percent right: another quiet, dull Benoni.
Jan-18-11  Octal: Ivan, oh Ivan, where are you going?
Jan-18-11  Sho: Move 11: Black to move: Mate in 30.

  scormus: <Phony Benoni> great entertaining game, thanks for alerting CG to get it put up. I'm in awe of Blacks play.

I wonder if one Sunday we'll see it ad POTD, 30. Black to play

Jan-18-11  theodor: << Phony Benoni>:.. "Crossing Jordan", in Christian imagery, has the meaning of walking to one's death. Certainly White's king did that.> as far, as I know, the ''golgotha' is the symbol of an end. this is more alike of the ''exodus'' and the following lounge in the desert(the wandering jew).
Jan-18-11  Jim Bartle: More recently, "Crossing Jordan" was a CSI-clone TV show starring Jill Hennessey.
Jan-18-11  AGOJ: Looks like one of those made-up games. With 8...Nbd7 Black essentially commits himself to checkmate the White king or die trying, so it is interesting to see him succeed at move 41. Not really a game to be analyzed, but just to be enjoyed.
Jan-18-11  hedgeh0g: Crazy Ivan
Jan-18-11  shoaibk: Amazing game!
Jan-19-11  rilkefan: Re the title, here's Richard Dyer-Bennet singing his version of "The Lonesome Valley": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRJM... This was the lead-in to The Midnight Special radio show back when I was in grad school in Chicago; I still find it haunting.
Jan-22-11  theodor: <<hedgeh0g>: Crazy Ivan> you mean Ivan Grozni?!
Feb-16-11  sevenseaman: Is it at all possible for a learner to get some positivity out of so wild an opening? Scary!
May-28-17  morfishine: I found an improvement, but I'm not telling lol

*****

Jun-05-17  Ironmanth: No words!
May-25-18  Saniyat24: It was funny how Black stops White Queen's check both times with the same c-pawn...
