################################################### "I keep on fighting as long as my opponent can make a mistake...." EMANUEL LASKER

"I keep on fighting as long as I can make a mistake..." LASKERESHEVSKY

#######################################

MY FAVORITE PLAYER:.........

EMANUEL LASKER 1868-1941

#########################################

MOTTOS: I have always believed in ...[never give up] ...[never surrender] ... [If smashed down, stand up and go back to fight] (in fact many of my lost games ended by checkmate), ...But now, after a life's experience, i think too [Better be lucky than good]

#########################################

Same Tactical/positional moves from my games....

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++....

(1) Played in 1996

Here I played:♙c5

Later in the game in this position:

♘xe5-....


click for larger view

...-♙xe5; ♖xb8CH.-♔xb8; ♗xe5+ 1-0


click for larger view

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++...........

(2) played in 2006


click for larger view

...♕xc1;


click for larger view

♗xc1-♘f2CH. -+


click for larger view

(If white play: ♕xc1... after ...♗xe3)


click for larger view

-+

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++.......

(3) Few years ago, after an easy and very stupid blunder in the opening i found myself in this totally lost position:


click for larger view

A whole pawn for nothing and a very bad mens placement.... Just a little before to resign I tried a last desperate trick: ♙g5


click for larger view

And now if black take with the H pawn... game over.

But probably he thought (as i hoped): <"...Why to allows white to resolve the problem of the ugly placed rook in h1?!... and why to put in h8 (after the rooks change) the well central placed rook?!...">

so he played: ...-♙fxg5, giving to me the chanche to equalize with: ♖xh6


click for larger view

After:...-♕f4; (of course he cant play ♖x♖ cause ♘g5ch.) ♖xh8-♖xh8; i took ♘xd5-... and he cant play ...♖d8 cause ♘xg5ch.(again!) win.

(analysis diagram )


click for larger view

After the game's moves:...♕xd2; ♖xd2-♙g4; ♘g5ch (again!) I won the finale:....


click for larger view

After my ♖xd2 the opponent realized that even now Rd8 cant be played, cause ♘g5ch. (again!)....

( Analysis Diagram )


click for larger view

♘g5ch was a real nightmare move for my opponent in this game...

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++..........

(4) Played in 2004


click for larger view

Of course white (I) is already much better here, but I like the final shoot...

♖d5


click for larger view

here, worried by the lots of treaths, my opponent blundered with:...♗g7 and resigned after ♕h7ch. 1-0 ... cause after the only ...♔f7; ♖f1 is check mate...


click for larger view

...♗xc3; doesent change a lot... ♙xc3-♕g7; ♗xe6ch.

( Analysis Diagram )


click for larger view

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++.....

(5) Played in 1993


click for larger view

Here I played....-♗xh3;


click for larger view

♗e2-♖g3;


click for larger view

♔g2-♖xg2ch.


click for larger view

♔xh3-♖xf2;


click for larger view

Now Black have a deadly Queen check in e3, White is forced to do something against it...

♗g4-... and after ...♖xb2 valutation is -+


click for larger view

Unfortunatly, after the Queens and rooks trade, in a W's♗+♙ VS. B's♙♙♙♙♙ (!) Finale, in a terrible zeitnot i wasnt able to find the (easy) winnig manouvre....

0.5-0.5

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++......

(6) Played in 1990 (Wow!... Im so Old?!?!!) :(-D

Ok, was one of my first ever tournament....


click for larger view

I played ...-♘f3ch.; thinking of: ♙xf3-♕xh3; ♙f4-♕g4ch; ♔f1-♕f3; -+

( Analysis Diagram )


click for larger view

But after ♔f1 delused by the refusion of my "brilliant" sac, in this better position with a pawn up I accepted (sic!) the draw that, with an almost unheardable whisper, my more expert opponent offered....


click for larger view

0.5-0.5

eeeehhhhhh!.... the younghood, the younghood..... so manx energy and power, but such a lack of experience...

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++.......

(7) Played in 2001


click for larger view

Here I played ...-♘xg3


click for larger view

This move was in my mind already from a while, in case white had played ♙f4. But when this move was made it, a long thought happened to me....

Simply I was worried about White's reply ♔xg3.... In fact after. ...-♖xe3ch.; ♖xe3-♗xf4ch.; ♔f2-♗xe3ch.; ♘xe3-♕h2ch. Black is OK

( Analysis Diagram )


click for larger view

Just, the emotive side during the game put on me always a big pression....

More, this was the last round, I had won all the games till now, For a lot I was tempted to offer draw and go to the Tournament's bar and sipping a good beer..... But the "Pathos" to see this sacrifice at work, at the end got me, ...like a fever.....

Game: ♘xg3-♖xe3;


click for larger view

♖xe3-♘xf4ch.;


click for larger view

♔f3-♘xd3; ♖xe8ch.-♔f7; ♖e3-♗xg3; ♘e2 and after 5/6 moves W resigned. 0-1


click for larger view

So, I won this tournament ( open B ) with 6/6, at the time I was in good shape cause a month later I won another Open B with 5.5/6.... All in all i closed the 2001 with a record of +12 =2 -1 and the whole period 1999-2001 with +25 =9 -6

After ♗xg3W cant take the♘d3 with the ♖ cause after ♕f4ch. is forced lost.

( Analysis Diagram )


click for larger view

In case of ♔g2 with: ...-♕f2ch.; ♔h1-♕h2 Mate

( Analysis Diagram )


click for larger view

In case of ♔e2 with: ...-♕f2ch.; ♔d1-♕xg1ch. etc.

( Analysis Diagram )


click for larger view

At the time I was very proud to foresaw all the side-lines before to play ♘xg3....

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++........
(8) 2001


click for larger view

After black played ...-♙gxf4 ( not the best )
instead to reply with the plausible and good ♙exf4, I chosed a more spectacular (but a little weaker) ♖xf4...


click for larger view

After ...-0-0; ♘f6ch.-♗xf6; ♖xf6-♔g7; ♖ef1-... Black blundered with ...-♘e7;


click for larger view

Here: ♖xd6 win


click for larger view

...♕xd6; ♕xd6-♖xd6; ♗xe5ch.-♙f6; ♗xd6-♖f7; ♗xc5...


click for larger view

Here a mixture of relax and lack of determination by my side, was facing a strong fighting mode showed by the Black... The result was another 30 moves (!) before I forced my opponent to resign.

I found very amusing a comment made by my opp. during the post-game analysis:

"Of course I was under pression here; but (after ...♘e7) I tought my position wasnt so bad.... but your ♖xd6 killed me... U took THREE(!) pawns with one move!!..."

Very nice...:-D

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++........

(9) 2005


click for larger view

♘d6-...


click for larger view

...-♖e7; ♗xf6-...


click for larger view

...-♙xf6; ♕xe7ch.-♕xe7; ♖xe7-♔xe7; ♘xf5ch.-♙xf5; ♖xf5


click for larger view

Black, in zeitnot resigned. 1-0

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

(10) 2005

In this position


click for larger view

in place of the consistent ♙b3 (ab. +0.90) i played a swindle, as tipical of me, with ♗g5 offering the ♙c4


click for larger view

..He did not took it, and after ...-♙e5. (♙f6 was better) ♗f4-♗d6. ♙c5-♗xc5. ♗xe5-♕e7. ♗xg7-♕xe2. ♘xe2


click for larger view

with 15 minutes for me and 50 to my opponent to finish the game, with the old mechanical clocks, no increment, i accepted the draw offered... In the post-mortem analysis i asked why he did not took the ♙c4, he told that did not see a clear refutation but just "felt" that to lost others tempi in chasing pawns with a delay in his development was not a good thing.... I showed my idea in case of ..♕xc4. ♖ac1


click for larger view

..♕xe2. ♖xc8+-♔d7. and now not ♘xe2+-♔xc8 but ♖d8+


click for larger view

..♔xd8. ♘e6+


click for larger view

and ..♔c8 ( or ♔e8) ♖d8#


click for larger view

... after ♔e8 is possible too ♘c7# ..

#########################################

(11) 1996


click for larger view

27...♕c7


click for larger view

This move gived me the idea of follow sequence with the sacrifice of the ♙h2: .. 28.♘d5


click for larger view

28...♗xh2+. 29.♔h1 ♕g3


click for larger view

30. Qh6


click for larger view

30...♕b8. 31.♖b1 (move necessary to my plain, to avoid the swap of the queens) ♕a8


click for larger view

32.♕xh2


click for larger view

♙xd5. 33. ♕d6!


click for larger view

White soon will take back the second pawn sacrified (in h2), and the exchange for a Night and a pawn thanks to the centralization of the WQ and the decentralization of the BQ give a winning position to the white (during the game i just felt that the position must be winning for me, after the game the engine showed a + 3.90)... I found elegant and harmonic the manouvre Qe3-h6-h2-d6

  laskereshevsky: <morfishine>
Thanks so much...

Showing the games of oneself might seem a narcissistic attitude, Maybe. My intention is to share with the lovers of this game the sensations felt during the intellectual effort to find the "best move", which I consider is the result of a deep search wich create a deep emotional feeling in search of harmony and truth that we can experiencing on the 64 squares

  moronovich: Good morning <laskereshevsky> !

I remember Larsen in his foreword to his book "50 selected games",also mentioned how it is a bit simular to narcissism to show ones own games,but emphazised that to him it is much more like a painter who proudly presents his work. I like that comparison.
And if it was forbidden to feel pride in ones achievements ? It would then be a poorer world we lived in. So hail to all these feelings we have during a game.And without them there would not be a creation IMO.And the fun of playing would be gone.

Best wishes

  laskereshevsky: <moronovich> yep, i agree

I own the 50 CG Bent's book and remember about Larsen's words. ...More to say, i found always the post-mortem analisys interesting at the same level of the game itselfs. to share opinions and variations gived me always good sensations... After all, IMHO a chess player is not only a player, or an agonist, but rather a searcher of the truth

Have a nice time!

  moronovich: Me too <laskereschevsky>,the postmortems were almost better than the game itself;) and even sometimes they could be the beginning of a friendship,at least chesswise.(With thanks to Bogart;) Have a nice time ,you too !

  morfishine: Hello <lashereshevsky> and my Dear friend <moronovich> I share those feelings in chess about being proud of one's achievements and games and feeling excited about showing those games without a trace of vanity; and this is proven when one has the time to allow another to do the same and having infinite time to appreciate what the other is trying to convey

  laskereshevsky: moreover, I always had the feeling of being a stronger player and a deeper researcher during the analysis rather than during the game :))

  laskereshevsky: The thing I hate most is the clock, although I recognize that without it the management of tournaments and agonistic phases would be worse. But having often to move while still sounding the position annoys me from the intellectual point of view of the game
