  nasmichael: Choosing games that chess initiates can understand is important in chess instruction. Setting up good principles in a chess player's mind will reflect in the improvement of the new player's games.
Sep-23-05  THE pawn: Oh my god, no kibitzing on this amazing game! This is ruy lopez at its best, this...wow! it has all a teacher would want when showing a game to a student, this is the perfect exemple of precise play, a true chess orgasm!

This marvelous game starts with 9.h3!, slowing devloppment for clear protection then an awsome queenside attack begins with 12.a4 then c4, but portisch defends well with 14...Ng6 and c6 after comes 23.Nf5! and 26.Qd2! I'm not surprised of Lajos's defensive counterplay with the strange 28.f6 move. At first it looks like a blunder, but realizing: (if portisch plays Re7 for defense then follows 29.f6! Rc7 Rxc7 Qxc7 Qg5 g6 Qh6 and next =mate.)

Then comes the crème of the crème of all moves 35.f3!! Not exactly the sort of move you're looking for in that type of position, but it's all logical, in case of and endgame.

Dec-11-06  piteira8: I think that if 44. ... Ke7, then 45. Ra8, threatening 46. Rxa7 (gaining the rook) or 46. d6+ (gaining the bishop).
Dec-30-06  Octavia: it features in THE ART OF LOGICAL THINKING by Neil McDonald, game 2
Jun-29-07  THE pawn: I come back a year and a half later and I still marvel at this gem of a game.
Jun-29-07  wanabe2000: To The Pawn. I was looking at your postings so I discovered this game. Thank you for that.
Jun-29-07  nescio: Another great Spanish clash between these two: Huebner vs Portisch, 1981
Jun-30-07  THE pawn: I was probably drunk when I wrote my first post, 9.h3 is all theory hahaha! same for moves 12 and 14.
Sep-29-09  WhiteRook48: 43....Bc4 I don't get i
Oct-12-10  meppi: 43 Bc4 is probably an attempt to create a passed pawn and counterplay.
Dec-13-11  chessicle: <piteira8: I think that if 44. ... Ke7, then 45. Ra8, threatening 46. Rxa7 (gaining the rook) or 46. d6+ (gaining the bishop).>

45 ♖h8, and 46 ♖xh7+ surely?

Jul-06-12  Ghuzultyy: This game deserves more kibitzing...

Huebner vs Portisch, 1986.

Nov-06-13  Ian McGarrett: If 45.Rh8 then Kd6 defends the h7 pawn with the rook on b7. Rather, 45.Rc8 attacks black's bishop which is forced to retreat, the pawn on b3 being taboo because of d6+, discovering an attack on the bishop.
Nov-06-15  Jonathan Lau: After 45.Rh8 Kd6, white should play 46.bxc4 b3 47. Rc8 b2 48.c5+ Ke7 49.d6#

  GrahamClayton: 35. f3 - With Black totally tied up, Huebner takes time to improve the position of his King for the endgame with 36. ♔f2 and 37. ♔e3, rather than going straight into the endgame with 35. ♗d7.
