Aug-28-05  Sydro: 36...Rd7?? mate in 4

36...Rb8 would save black.

Aug-28-05  misguidedaggression: <A.Alekhine: Yahoo..first>

Congratulations!!!! Your prize is...umm...hold on...I've got it here somewhere...there! wait, that's not it...ahh!...nope, not it either...umm...well...I guess you'll just have to settle for this lint I've found in my pockets. Better luck next time.

Aug-28-05  cade: <A.Alekhine: Yahoo..first>

Thank god we got people like you posting on this site, you are such a huge credit to the community.

Aug-28-05  A.Alekhine: very funny :) lol
Aug-28-05  misguidedaggression: <cade> don't be so hard on the guy, After all, everyone knows that every time you get first post on GotD, the USCF gives you 50 extra rating points! It is also said to make you a better player, produce general feelings of wellbeing, and enhances a certain part of the male anatomy (unfortunately that part is the toenails, but I guess you can't have everything).

Additionally, the first kibitzer also recieves a prize worthy of his or her monumental achievement! Those of you who aspire to be <First!> on tomorrow's GotD can look forward to this wonderful trophy:

A rock that bears a striking resemblance to Paul Morphy!

Well, ok, it doesn't really. It looks more like a rock. But it has a wonderful story behind it. Well..ok, i lied. I found it in my driveway and picked it up for no reason whatsoever. But on the positive side, I haven't thrown it at anyone....yet.

  WannaBe: 36. ... Rg8 is better. (At least according to Shredder.)

<misguidedaggression> First, First, First, First, First, First.

Boy I feel better now. and where is my extra 300 pts?! (Probably in the mail.) :-)

Aug-28-05  aginis: In fact there are only 336,642 games in the database if you systematically write first on all of them you can automatically piss people off twice a day. And when you're an old man you can look back fondly on your life and think of your good works that will continue for hundreds of years to come.

  al wazir: 34...Rxf2 looks like an irrelevant move. Maybe Rc8 instead?

  al wazir: Get a load of this guy Fritz (player of the day). I'd like to be that good when I'm 108+ years old.
Aug-28-05  Jack Kerouac: Eleventh!
Aug-28-05  Queens Gambit: i Dont see why its the game of the day, even me as a patzer have played much better games against caro-kann than this one.

  kevin86: A major piece triple along the SIXTH rank-rarely,if ever seen. Conquest gets conked!
Aug-28-05  muskrat: <al wazir> 34... Rc8 35. Rxc8 Nxc8 36. Qxd5+

  patzer2: White's 23. Nxe6!? illustrates the power of the demolition of pawn structure combination, even when it may not be entirely sound. In this case, it enables a 2500+ player to confound a 2600+ player in the complications, sufficient to force a win.

  MoonlitKnight: Swedish IM Jesper Hall is by many considered the best chess trainer in Scandinavia. By studying how chess is taught in many countries in the world, he has drawn elements into a whole new chess "school" which he likes to call the Scandinavian school of chess. I've attended to several of his lectures in Norway, and I must say, he is an excellent teacher and also a very likeable guy.

Although partly retired from the chess scene, he still makes some appearances for different teams. He plays on ICC under the nickname "Dromedar".

Aug-28-05  Needle: By the way, doesn't 32.Rxc6 finish the game in a much faster and easier way than how it was done in the actual game? Black is either checkmated or loses a rook and a queen.
Aug-28-05  sfm: <Needle: By the way...32.Rxc6 ...Black is either checkmated or loses a rook and a queen.> That is indeed a lot! So 32.Rxc6+,Kb7 - now what?
Aug-28-05  PaulLovric: 19th LMFAO
Aug-28-05  misguidedaggression: <PaulLovric: 19th LMFAO> Aww, too bad, there was a special 20th post bonus prize today. And you're one post too early. It was a case of Gunness, too. Well, I guess I'll just have to make some extra room in my refridgerator.
Aug-28-05  dac1990: All right, this is what I was talking about when I said no one should ever say 'first' a couple of days back. It's annoying! Add something constructive! Even coming up with a better or worse pun would make things more interesting, instead this 'eleventh' and 'nineteenth' nonsense. Sorry if I sound uptight, but sheesh! This is a site about chess!

Woah, did I actually type all of that? I'm usually much more accepting than that; it must be past my bedtime.

Aug-28-05  PaulLovric: 22nd now
Aug-29-05  misguidedaggression: <dac1990> No beer for you either!
Aug-29-05  Needle: sfm: :D I should never analyze anything after midnight... missed the pawn in a7.

  patzer2: As <Sydro> notes above, Black blundered with 36...Rd7?? allowing a quick deflection mate after 37. Rxb6+! Instead, the strong defensive move 36...Rb8! would have saved Black's game with winning chances.

After 36... Rb8 37. Rxb6+ axb6 38. Qxb6+ Ka8 39. Qc6+ Rfb7 40. Qxd5 Rc8 41. h4 Qc7 42. Re3 Rh8 , Black appears to have a winning advantage (-1.78 @ 14 depth per Fritz 8).

Mar-10-09  WhiteRook48: 26th!
easy conquest
