Apr-22-06  CapablancaFan: <Ezzy><Does anyone understand the pun? I'm more bamboozled at this than game itself!> The pun is a reference to the term "pez dispenser". Pez dispencers have been a part of Americana for years. It is a toy that has a head face on it who's likeness can vary i.e. mickey mouse, tweety bird, etc. There is candy inside. You tilt the head back and it "dispences" candy one by one. The pun is saying that this game that Myagmarsuren Lhamsuren easily "dispenses" with Nezhmetdinov Rashid.
Apr-22-06  Ezzy: <CapablancaFan> Thanks.

I would never have understood that in 20 reincarnations of my body. Unless of course in one of those reincarnations I popped up in America!

Apr-22-06  dakgootje: <t is a toy that has a head face on it who's likeness can vary i.e. mickey mouse, tweety bird, etc. There is candy inside. You tilt the head back and it "dispences" candy one by one.> Ah THOSE things! never knew they actually had a name lol

<Dres1> Nah, i agree with zenchess on the point that whites queen couldnt be saved around the 31th move

Nice game with a somewhat strange opening for me, is blacks 7th move much used?

Apr-22-06  blingice: <Ezzy>

It's a multinational corporation.

Apr-22-06  Ezzy: <blingice> I have just seen the pictures of the candy dispenser from the link you gave. Never seen them before.

They should have them with chessplayers heads, and when they lose you chessbucks you could use them as an effigy and burn them or stick pins in them. The 'Kramnik bashers' could pull Kramnik's head off when they get angry with him. Then after all that sadistic activity, you can calm yourself by eating the sweets.(Sorry! I mean candy!)

Apr-22-06  itz2000: can anyone tell me what fritz says about that sac in move 7? what are black chances?

  Eric Schiller: <itz> I neither know nor care what Fritz has to say about openings, but the sacrifice is the only move ever played in the position, all 5 times in the database. Black's position is worse in any case, but the sac gives some dynamic potential. In fact, Black scored 4/5 from the position. Black's huge center is worth something, and he already has two pawns for the piece.

This is typical of positions that computers just can't evaluate properly.

Apr-22-06  ajile: This appears to be a transposition by one move to the Schliemann (3...f5). The early f5 by Black in double E pawn openings produces sharp dangerous games for both sides. The pawn mass Black gets in this game is amazing and is great compensation for the piece. In fact the a3 Knight is basically useless for most of the game.
Apr-22-06  Nezhmetdinov: I only knew Myagmarsuren from this game: Fischer vs Myagmarsuren, 1967 but this is rather good.

  Pawn and Two: 7...Nf6 was recommended by Alekhine in his theoretical survey of the opening innovations for the 1925 Baden Baden tournament.

<Alekhine states: if 7.d5, then 7...Nf6! 8.dxc6 bxc6, followed by ...d5 and Black obtains, by the piece sacrifice, a crushing center and excellent attacking chances.>

PCO by Fine, indicates that 6.Bxc6, as recommended by Bilguer, would lead to equality. 6.Bxc6 dxc6 7.Nxe5 Bd6 8.Qh5+ g6 9.Qe2 Qh4 10.Nd2 Nf6 11.h3 0-0 12.g3 Qh5 13.Qxh5 Nxh5 =. Boleslavsky - Tolush, Moscow - 1944.

MC0 10 states that equality is reached by 6.dxc5 exf3 7.Qxf3 Qe7 =

Some indicated lines with 7.d5 in MCO 10 and PCO are:

7.d5 Nf6 8.0-0 <(MCO 10 recommends 8.dxc6 bxc6 9.Ba4 Bb7=; Note the difference in Alekhine's evaluation given above for 8.dxc6 bxc6)> Ne7 9.Qe2 c6 10.d6 Nf5 11.Nxe4 Nxe4 12.Qxe4 Qf6 13.Bg5 Nxd6!. Colle-Vidmar, Bled 1931, with advantage for Black per MCO 10 and PCO. Fritz 9 evaluates the position after 13.Bg5 Nxd6! to be winning for Black.

  Zenchess: Keypusher: 15...c4 16. Nd2 Qf7 17. Qe1 Qg6 18. Bh4 Qh6 19. Bg3 e3!! 20. Ndb1 Ne4 21. f3 Nxg3 22. Qxg3 Rf5 . Black wins in this line because he has completely shut White's pieces out from the K-side and can work up an attack of his own. It is only a matter of time before he breaks through.

Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: <Zenchess> 17 Qe1 is awfully cooperative of white. 17 Nc2 looks much stronger, e.g. 17...Qg6 18 Be3 Bh3 19 Ne1.

I agree that 15 Bg5 was a weak move and that 15...c4 would have been stronger than 15...c6. I remain unconvinced that Black would have been winning after 15...c4.

Go easy on the exclamation points. Let your moves speak for themselves.

  Pawn and Two: <itz2000> Regarding your question of the evaluation of the Knight offer 7...Nf6, please note my posting of 04/22/06 for evaluations by Alekhine and MCO 10.

In the game Colle-Vidmar Bled 1931, Vidmar was expressing a belief in the value of the sacrifice by playing 7...Nf6.

Kmoch, in his notes to Colle-Vidmar game stated, <This sacrifice was already known long ago, and was recommended by Alekhine in his theoretical survey of the opening innovations at the Baden Baden tournament. Obviously, Colle was unaware of it, otherwise he would undoubtedly have tried to avoid it. After 8.dxc6 bxc6 9.Ba4 Bb7, followed by ...0-0 and d5, Black's risk, thanks to his strong center and two pawns for the piece, is highly insignificant. The possibility of exchanging the strong bishop, by Nc4 and Nxb6, does not ease White's position. However, the text> (Colle's 8.0-0, see my post of 04/22/06) <move cannot be regarded as satisfactory, since White obtains no compensation at all for the lost pawn.>

Eric Shiller's note on 04/22/06 states, <Black's position is worse in any case, but the sac gives some dynamic potential. In fact, Black scored 4/5 from the position. Black's huge center is worth something and he already has 2 pawns for the piece.>

Fritz 9 gave the following evaluation after 7.d5 Nf6 8.dxc6 bxc6 9.Ba4 (.28) (18 ply). Fritz preferred the move 9.Ba4 over 9.Be2.

After 7.d5 Nf6 8.dxc6 bxc6 9.Ba4, Fritz gave the following line, ...0-0 10.Nc4 Qe8 11.Nxb6 axb6 12.0-0 d5.

In my opinion, the line 7.d5 Nf6, offers Black strong practical chances. Black's strong pawn center makes it difficult for White to develop and to obtain counterplay.

  Zenchess: Keypusher: In your line, 19...Bxe3 20. fxe3 Ng4 is strong. So, while your line is better, Black still has good winning chances. White's best chance here is to try to return the piece by Nxc4, but even here, Black stands well.
Feb-23-08  jovack: The opening was full of gambits, that's fine, I think white came out with the advantage though after the knight sac.

White dropped the ball on his 27th move... he had a considerable advantage over black, but by letting black's pawn in that far to attack his bishop, he sealed his own fate by letting him back into the game.

Premium Chessgames Member
  GrahamClayton: Amazing position after 29...e3. I think Hans Kmoch called that Black pawn formation a "quad".
Jan-31-11  Whitehat1963: Excellent battle from this pair of unspellable geniuses!
Jun-06-11  Llawdogg: Wow! The deluge!
Jul-10-11  falso contacto: something's hanging with this variation.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: Very impressive game! Myagmarsuren played like a man possessed, smashing the great Nezh in Nezh-like fashion.
Oct-28-12  The HeavenSmile: what a fantastic game!

  perfidious: White's sixth is move is probably the weakest of his myriad of alternatives. My only experience of the Cordel Gambit saw 6.Bxc6 dxc6 7.Nfd2 in A Shaw-John A Curdo, Bulger Memorial 1985, and there are other possibilities. Opening Explorer

After 6.Bxc6 bxc6 7.Nfd2, an idea I recall mentioned in Players Chess News was 7....Bd6 8.dxe5 e3, but 9.dxc5 was played in R Lau vs A Bastian, 1983 and led to a speedy win for White.

Bastian's play could certainly have been improved, but the position after White's eleventh move seems to offer a small, but nagging edge-hardly the sort of game one is after when playing 4....f5.

May-24-15  falso contacto: Im reading my own old jokes and laughing like a fool.
May-24-15  falso contacto: "Cordel" means "string" in spanish; so, something might be hanging in the string variation.
Oct-08-20  payan: Another queen sacrifice by Nezhmetdinov . Anything is good till 34.Bg4, the exchange of wrong bishops, the correct move is 34.Bh5.
