Jan-24-13  shakman: Carlsen played black in this opening line B Hagen vs Carlsen, 2007
Aug-17-13  BlackFront: <Hugo Boss>
Nov-22-14  sfm: <ConLaMismaMano: Why did Kasparov resign here? > Good question, it is very early. Having a lost position is totally insufficient reason. Maybe he'd rather concentrate on the other games.
Thanks for waiting 10 years for this comment! :-)
Oct-03-15  Esauwept: Would someone show the check mate in this game? I am perplexed.
Oct-04-15  Sally Simpson: Hi Esauwept,

The answer is in the thread.

There is no clear cut win just an awful position for Black. The White win was inevitable.

Kasparov was playing a clock simultaneous display against 6 Argentinian Grandmasters.

It does appear he quit this game to concentrate on the others. It looks like worked.

He won 3 games, drew two and lost this one.

The day before he played the same six players winning three and drawing three.

Oct-04-15  Esauwept: Thanks as ever.
Jul-20-21  Brenin: <shakman>: In <B Hagen vs Carlsen, 2007>, Carlsen should have lost (28 Rxf8!). This line looks bad for Black, since with his LSB on the long diagonal, and White's N and P controlling f5, he can't play the thematic freeing move f5.
Jul-20-21  Cheapo by the Dozen: So basically White had a pawn advantage, an outside passed pawn, and a much freer position.

  MissScarlett: Good pun. Wished I'd thought of it.
Jul-20-21  spingo: Hugo Boss designed those sinister Nazi uniforms.

In films the good guys take every chance to don the enemy's black SS outfits.

I believe Boss's trade was as an honest designer and tailor, so he avoided the guillotine.

Not so, but it makes for a nice story.

  MissScarlett: Practically every non-kosher textile firm of any size in Germany would have made official dress of some description. But that would have been as unremarkable as private firms manufacturing everything from light bulbs to toilet rolls, for which, no doubt, the German state also had a need.

  HeMateMe: Krupp steel and armaments lasted decades after the fall of nazi Germany, being renamed I think in the 1980s. They existed as a respectable company despite being the engine that turned Europe into a barren landscape and killed 6 million jews.
