|Oct-22-10|| ||sevenseaman: Relentless! From the time White decides to call on the royal, Black King is never given a plausible choice.|
|Oct-26-10|| ||ag13: <randomsac: I saw the score, and I thought "how the heck does a king checkmate?" Oh. By discovery.>|
This game shows another example:
B Kurz vs K Treybal, 1904
|Feb-14-11|| ||castle dweller: As for the method of mate . . .
I do not have a real preference, either way seems equally elegent in its own way.
Therefore: 1/2 pt for o-o-o and 1/2 pt for Kd2!
|Feb-19-11|| ||AnalyzeThis: I've been playing chess a long time, and have come to understand that for black, the question of what to do with his c8 bishop will determine how well he does in the opening, assuming he is otherwise playing reasonable moves.|
This game is a typical example. It looks lovely on b7, but truthfully it doesn't do anything - meanwhile black's kingside is burning down. Black invested two tempos to put this bishop there, while White was gunning straight for the king.
Here, black handled his b7 bishop wrong, and got gunned down as a result.
|Feb-20-11|| ||Caissanist: <Wyatt Gwyon: I'd like to see a game where a king marched by itself clear the hell down into the other side's territory and survived.>|
One of my favorite games ever: N Weinstein vs Suttles, 1973
|Feb-20-11|| ||Phony Benoni: An old classic: R Steel vs NN, 1886|
|Apr-13-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: I covered this game here - http://www.ajschess.com/lifemastera... (you have to scroll down a bit). |
10...Bxe5! (as first suggested by Em. Lasker, I believe) would have allowed Black to survive.
|Apr-18-11|| ||Tigranny: I think 18.Kd2# is actually better than 18.0-0-0#. If 18.0-0-0#, maybe Thomas would think that Lasker's king was too afraid to attack.|
|Apr-22-11|| ||Tigranny: Prins vs L Day, 1968 is a mate when Black castles queenside.|
|Oct-06-11|| ||missionmankiwi: Beautiful Q-sac beginning 11 Qxh7+. But Black's position was ripe for the picking on the K-side: Count the pieces (a la IM Gary Lane)|
|Oct-26-11|| ||Goldengab: @AnalyzeThis
Well, it's not a matter of lost tempo, bad bishops or similar: it's a matter of suicide silly moves! Already Bd3 and Queen are pointing king, plus a discovered attack... Qe7 is just a suicide move. Come on guys, this is dumb chess. Even an amateur knows how to avoid these things. After all, nice mate :)
|Nov-16-11|| ||Llawdogg: I also vote for 18 0-0-0#.|
|Nov-16-11|| ||sevenseaman: "Fatal attraction", free traction.|
|Dec-24-11|| ||fetonzio: kudos to edward, who was a true genius (inventor of a life-saving breast pump) and died only 3 years before i was born! his combination is terrific, and years ago seemed unfathomable to me, although now i see all moves are forced, so there is really only one line to look at. still, u dont choose greatness, it chooses u, and in this case it chose the lesser-known lasker - which incredibly enough was friends with the lesser-known max lange!!!!!|
|Feb-20-12|| ||Penguincw: Say, is there anything wrong with 18.0-0-0?|
|Feb-21-12|| ||SimonT: There's nothing wrong with 18. 0-0-0#
Yasser Seirawan prefers that move in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fBMY...
|Feb-22-12|| ||Penguincw: < SimonT: There's nothing wrong with 18. 0-0-0# >|
I know. Why I ask? Well, I played this game in Guess-the-Move, and after 17...Kg1, I played 18.0-0-0 and it gave me no points! So, I tried it again, then penazlize me for three points for playing a correct move. Then, still gave me no moves for queenside castling. :(
|Apr-15-12|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: One hundred years ago !!|
|Apr-28-12|| ||HeMateMe: This is fun!|
|Jun-21-12|| ||IlluminatoSavio: Un capolavoro|
|Jun-21-12|| ||Cemoblanca: Women!! ;0) [11.Qxh7!!]|
|Jun-21-12|| ||RookFile: Another game where black puts his bishop on b7, and it whistles in the wind while the house burns down on the other side of the board.|
|Aug-15-12|| ||whiteshark: Whenever you can castle with check! Do it. (Seirawan)|
|Oct-18-12|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: The most famous king's trip !!|
