  An Englishman: Good Evening: Leaving aside the detail that many fellows have never heard of Limp Bizkit, "limp" is hardly the term I would use to describe Bisguier's play. After 10...Bg7?; 11.Nc4! White never seems to let up the pressure.

  al wazir: How can white do better than draw after 31...Qxa4 ?
Sep-06-09  dumbgai: <al wazir> After 31...Qxa4 32. Rb7+ Ka8 33. Rxb6+ Rc6 34. Bxc6+ Qxc6 35. Rxc6 White is simply up the exchange.
Sep-06-09  outsider: in addition, in dumbgai's variation, white get the pawn back, will get a passed pawn on queenside as soon as they like it, black kingside pawn structure is sweet to eat for two rooks, etc. anyone of us would beat carlsen or aronian with white starting from that position. the issue with me is that i cannot get such a position against a master :(

  Once: Shame that this sizzling game has only four ... no, make that five ... kibitzes. The others don't know what they are missing!

Thoroughly enjoyed the 14. d5 pawn sac to blast open the centre of the board and give the black king no safe resting place. And 31. Rd7 is sublime.

<outsider> I know what you mean! The trouble is that we need to find moves like 14. d5 to get to the final combination.

Sep-06-09  screwdriver: Nice attack by Bisguier. Many decades later I had the pleasure of playing Bisguier in similtaneous exhibition he put on. I believe Bisguier beat Fischer in the past as well.

Sep-06-09  dumbgai: <screwdriver> This is the game where Bisguier beat Fischer:

Bisguier vs Fischer, 1956

Like this game, it also features a nice pawn sac in the center to get to the opponent's king.

  Once: <WhiteRook48: what is wrong with 37 Rdd7?>

Not a lot. Black's best seems to be 37...Qc1, but then 38. Rd1 Qc4 39. Ra8+ seals the win.

In short, white had many ways to win with two rooks and a bishop against the black queen. The black Rg7 doesn't really count!
