Either that or extreme luck. Try this as White against someone like Aronian and see what happens. I mean seriously Black gets his queen stuck on WHITE'S first rank.
|Sep-03-12|| ||kia0708: game of the day, or rather game of the month
|Feb-04-13|| ||kurodo77: I don't believe this game. Amazing Chuky....|
|Mar-18-13|| ||chesssalamander: Great game by Ivanchuk! He lets Black get a killer attack, and gives up his Queen, and his King is trapped in the center. And then he wins!|
|Mar-18-13|| ||solskytz: One can't help but think about old Steinitz with his crazy ideas in his later days, when watching this funny game. The guy stops at nothing - Offer the b6-g1 diagonal, wide open, not move the Ng1 out of danger, then sacrifice the queen, undevelop his forces, get them out from the flank, playing dxc6 and opening up the position still further against his own king...|
What a frustrating experience this must have been for Jobava!
|Mar-18-13|| ||solskytz: ...And then that final move! Just to complete the joke. So Chucky!|
|Jul-08-13|| ||johnliu: rel is a bad move because he lost a knight and a pawn|
|Jan-18-14|| ||kia0708: UNUSUAL GAME ....
and so ENTERTAINING !!!
|Jan-18-14|| ||FSR: I had completely forgotten (and still don't recall) having seen this game before. I don't know how that's possible. Hope I'm not going senile.|
|Jan-18-14|| ||AsosLight: I feel the same FSR. I recalled this game when I saw 3.f3 but once I got my memory back I panicked that I am losing my brains. How was it possible that I had forgot this one.
It is so absurd that looks like it was staged, maybe this is the reason my brain somehow skipped it.|
|Mar-06-14|| ||Whitehat1963: So unusual! So incredible!|
|Apr-02-14|| ||Ed Frank: I've never seen this game before.
You can imagine: I'm throwing my hands up in awe and frustration. A fantasy indeed: Chuky is an alien.
|Aug-11-14|| ||Ke2: awesome awesome game|
|Jan-14-16|| ||onur87: what a brave play by GM Ivanchuk! As a Turkish Glad to know he likes Türkiye.|
|Sep-10-16|| ||Finnishplayer: Chucky still got it!!|
|Nov-17-16|| ||Saniyat24: What unbelievable and impenetrable defense by Ivanchuk...Baadur played spiritedly, but White had all the answers. The position reached at the end is truly out of the world!|
|Nov-18-16|| ||paavoh: Another gem by Ivanchuk, deserves to be GOTD: Ivanchuk vs Short, 1995|
|Nov-18-16|| ||saffuna: After 15 moves Ivanchuk has no pieces developed, his king is trapped in the middle, and he's lost his queen. A winning position!|
|Feb-03-17|| ||Conrad93: This is still the ballsiest game of chess I've ever seen.|
|Feb-03-17|| ||gokusano: Ivanchuk is a classy warrior. In a tournament of chess elite, ivanchuk, jobava,and adhiban shoud take part to create exciting chess matches. Carlsen and the rest of top ten play boringring chesschess.|
|Feb-27-17|| ||Saniyat24: thanks <paavoh> for the Ivanchuk vs Short game...|
|Apr-23-17|| ||morfishine: Well Jobava starts the ball rolling by tossing the Knight; but after <12.Kxe1> Ivanchuk has 3 pieces for the Queen|
As silly as this game looks, I gotta think Jobava missed something earlier in the way of returning material, not that it saves him, but perhaps at least avoids that last ignominious move by Ivanchuk
I wonder what the engines think
|Feb-22-18|| ||Penguincw: Video analysis of this game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ewy....|
|Oct-24-18|| ||louispaulsen88888888: He has all his pieces on the first rank. His queen is gone. His king is stuck in the middle...and he wins!!!|
|Nov-07-18|| ||Saniyat24: The Final touchdown...I know this game it's in my collection, and through this game I first discovered Ivanchuk and gave him my top 5 spot among my chess heroes.|
