Feb-14-10  notyetagm: Game Collection: bareev loses with the french in under 30 moves.
Feb-14-10  MaxxLange: <the basically forced re-capture 20 ... g8xf7>

20....Kh8 21 Ng6+ hxg6 22 Qh3+ , mating

20....Kf8 21 Bxe7+ Kxf7 22 Qf3+ looks crushing. Black probably has to play 23...Bf5 24 Qxf5+ Qf6, so that Qh5+ doesn't skewer an undefended e8 Rook.

Nice tactics!
What a shot.

Feb-14-10  Jim Bartle: I also remember Bareev as a player with a poor sense of danger, making moves anyone could see were risky. For example, way he captures the g2 pawn on move 17 in Judit Polgar vs Bareev, 1993. It just seems to open a freeway to the black king.
Feb-14-10  mysql: Bareev should stop using this.

Yes, Bacrot's 20 ♗c4xf7+! 1-0 wins the game *immediately*.

  bright1: <MaxxLange> after the line 20....Kh8 21 Ng6+ hxg6 22 Qh3+ won't the bishop on c8 capture the queen on h3? Although, instead of 21. Ng6 the capture Bf7xe8 should win.
Feb-14-10  notyetagm: One of the best <MINIATURES> I have ever seen between 2700-level players.

17 ♖e1x♗e7!, 20 ♗c4xf7+!, and it's 1-0 when does Round 7 start?

:-)

Fantastic Tal-like attacking game by Bacrot, to take down the (almost) legendary Bareev.

I count 9, including this one, but I really, really *love* this game.

<Fantastic Tal-like attacking game by Bacrot, to take down the (almost) legendary Bareev.>

Indeed.

Feb-15-10  Bdellovibrio: But wait, this isn't a French, it's a Slav! or is there some late transposition to a French Exchange Var. here??
Feb-15-10  MaxxLange: <bright1> oops! I realized that after I went to bed. I guess White just plays Bxe8 if ....Kh8
Feb-15-10  nuwanda:

though 20.Bxf7+ being a nice shot, i think the real beauty here lies in the variation 19...Be6 20.Rxe6 fe 21.Bxe6+ Kh8 22.Bxe7 with the mate-threat of 23.Ng6+

Bareev was the World #4(!) back in the 2002/2003 timeframe.

His rating has gone down a lot since then but that does not take away from his peak strength.

Take that www stuff out of your game collection name, it's screwing everything up.

Just call it <French disasters> or <French debacles>. Why do you even need the .info suffix?

Feb-16-10  KERESOV: What an excellent game by GM Etienne Bacrot! When was the last time he won a game in 20 moves or less ? Kotov's formula is very evident in this game, "a unified plan in a game of chess is an aggregate of strategic operations, following one after another ..." The strategic pattern that took place in which GM Bareev does not make a single anti-positional move is somewhat amazing in itself and to lose both the opening and middlegame battle nevertheless is something a student of the game should derive aesthetic pleasure and profound knowledge. Ettienne adheres to the method of accumulating slight advantages. In all it's appearance, the knight on the edge of the board a6 is not the best solution. because any attempt now to bring this poor beast into play will involve a considerable loss of time. The scattered state of Black's forces and their lack of coordination will cause too much inconvenience. Bravo! Brilliant! and one of the best games of the year!
Dec-08-10  sevenseaman: Loads of promise visible in the young French gm. We should have been hearing more about him!
