  Benzol: Many thanks to whoever uploaded this game. I've been wanting to see the full gamescore since 2006.


Sep-20-16  Skakalec: Very proud of myself. Found it after few minutes.The move came out after unsuccessful attempt Qe6.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Quite astonishing, esp. the number of times Black tried to sacrifice something but White refused to bite; 36.Bxg8,Rf1X.

Typical of the so-called Death Variation (8.d5); Black has little choice but to let White eat his Queen side and hope that he can checkmate the White King.

Sep-21-16  Elrathia Kingi: I was wondering about the logic of 31.Rb2 instead of 31.Rfc2, so after staring at it for a while and not understanding, I put it in Stockfish. The eval for 31.Rfc2 is about -0.2. The eval for 31.Rb2 is about -9.0.
Sep-21-16  bachiller: Ich bin "Auch en berg"-liner.
Sep-21-16  Troller: I remember the guy playing Black from back then, our teams met in the high school championships around 1991 or so. He was highly talented at the time, but he hasn't been much active since 1994.

Auchenberg was a well-known very active player in Denmark; for a year or two I was in the same club as him in the late nineties. He died relatively young some ten years ago, however.

  OhioChessFan: <EK> yes, I quickly played through the game and was shocked at 31. Rb2. I assume White somehow missed the mating net Black had, one tempo quicker than White could pin the Black Queen.
Sep-21-16  AlicesKnight: I wonder how far back he saw 34....Qg8? - it's the image in the marble thing again. After 31.Rb2 perhaps? The blocking power of the Black P chain limiting the ability of White to get pieces over to defend the K-side shows itself. Even 36.dxc8=Q does not save White at the end.

  kevin86: Both sides attack along the back row. But black adds an instant mate.
Sep-21-16  ajile: In an opening where tempos are everything it would appear that 14.Nb5 is a bad tempo waster. 14.Nb5 provokes 14..b6 which is a move Black wants to play anyways to stop c5 by White. Isn't 14.Nd3 the more logical choice?
Sep-21-16  psmith: <Elrathia Kingi> <OhioChessFan> I let Stockfish run for a while on 31. Rfc2. It all looks very complicated but Black seems to be coming out on top after 31... Rh1+ 32. Kf2 Nc6.
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: <36. dxc8=Q> Nh1+ 37. Ke2 Qxg2+ 38. Kd3 Qc2#

Looks pretty similar to the game, huh?

Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Oh, no, <morf> man up. Your mad dog routine about the pun caused you to be blind and miss big time on the end. Don't delete now.

  Benzol: If this is just a sample of the way Elgaard can play it's a pity there aren't more games of his available.
