Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-30-13  The Last Straw: Not so often you see a game ending in checkmate around this level.
Jul-30-13  csmath: This opening is supposedly opening in which Khenkin is an expert. He got out of the opening fine but with that pawn stuck on e5 is obviously uncomfortable.

One would assume he knows how to handle that and what is needed is surely active defence. But he did not do that. Rather he goes in a 2-move tactical blunder pawn grab. Absolutely horrible move 19. ... Nxe5?? that loses the game outright.

To top it off he walks into a mate already totally lost perhaps with intention.

This is absolutelly horrible display. If somebody shows you this game and says this is a GM you would be really surprised.

<Penguincw: Wouldn't one resign after white's 26 move (or before)?>

Damn, I would rather *resign* then play 26 ... ♔g8-h8 and *hope* might opponent does not exploit the <PIN AGAINST THE KING> and play the obvious 27 ♕g3xg7#.

Jul-30-13  csmath: There is only one question here - did he see that cheap mate and just walked into it to "commit suicide" already disappointed with horrible error he made earlier?

If not then this is truly bad. Ready to get to the nearest bar and order a bottle of Vodka!

ROFLMAO

Jul-30-13  HSOL: 19.- Nxe5 is a really horrible move, I would be very annoyed at myself if I had played it in even a blitz game.

  Zhbugnoimt: If Khenkin played like this against a 2000 rated player, he would lose. GM's shouldn't be allowed to play like this. 18...Nxe5 is just unacceptable. Maybe he just was having a bad day before sitting down at the chessboard.

Yeah, we should pass a law or something!

Get a grip. Seriously, take a step back and listen to yourself.

Jul-30-13  csmath: Sometimes tongue in cheek is just a tongue-in-cheek and not really about licking.
Jul-30-13  Maatalkko: As a Class B player, I would expect to see/avoid this tactic most of the time in 5 min blitz. I wouldn't even consider 18. h4 a "trap" except against an unusually gullible or weak opponent. (Sometimes, a strong player with enough arrogance can make a mistake like this if he assumes you're being the idiot.)

None of that applies here. Khenkin's nerves failed him. The stress of prolonged defense against stronger players was too much. I hope he can clear his head in time for the next Round.

Jul-30-13  WiseWizard: A fresh approach to the Caro-Kann gives white a strong pawn on e5 and space to bring pieces toward black king. Black's gives up the exchange under serious pressure but White's pieces are still in dominant attacking positions and he wins quickly.

First of all it is not a fresh approach.

Second the pawn on e5 is equally a weakness as it is a strength.

Third giving an exchange was not because of pressure (unless Khenkin had a bladder problem) since it is an amateurish blunder not usually seen at this level.

  al wazir: Khenkin is 55.
Jul-31-13  chessvcr: what if black instead of
26....kh8, 26.....Qd4?
Jul-31-13  iking: 18. h4 invites the Black side to blunder, and it did ....
Jul-31-13  iking: <csmath: There is only one question here - did he see that cheap mate and just walked into it to "commit suicide" already disappointed with horrible error he made earlier?>

a manly act in defeat .... he lets himself be mated rather than agonize the rest of the game ....

Jul-31-13  mugwanja: why not 24. Bh6.. and if ..Qf6, then 25. Qd6 ??
Jul-31-13  hedgeh0g: 20.Ng6!

*facepalm*

Aug-01-13  Obainosama: 24.Bh6-Bd7 25.Bg7!-Bc8 26.Bf6mates or 24.Bh6-Qf6 25.Qd6 settles it....a horrible day at the office for Khenkin
