Oct-23-07  sfm: <30 Nd5 is a horrible blunder...> The game was over anyway. Black wins easily due to his threats against the White king.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: The passive Bishop sacrifice initiated with 15...Qd7?!, self-trapping the Be6, was not at all needed. In his The Art of Attack in Chess, Vukovic has rather a spot of fun pointing out the multitude of errors on both sides, and concludes by drolly noting, "This game won the 2nd Brilliancy Prize."

Aside from 15...Qd7?!, 17.gxh3? (a6!), 18.Qd2? (Re2!), 18...N6h5? (h5!) and 19.Qf2? (Nxh5!) all come in for criticism from Vukovic, Maroczy and Tartakower. It would be interesting to let Rybka digest the game in its silicon intestines to see if the analysis by those old organic self-programming entities still passes.

Feb-11-16  TheFocus: This game was awarded the Third Brilliancy Prize.

  Honza Cervenka: <17.gxh3? (a6!)> Well, 17.a6 is not anything special, as black can play simply 17...Nxg2. But 17.Re2 looks better than 17.gxh3, though then after 17...g4!? the position is still quite sharp.

<18.Qd2? (Re2!)> 18.Qd2 is fine and comparable to 18.Re2, which was sound too.

<18...N6h5? (h5!)> 18...h5 is bad for simple 19.Bc4 with intention Bf1. Marco's choice is objectively better, though 18...g4 would have been more precise continuation. Vukovic's criticism of 19.Qf2 is correct but the losing move seems to be 20.Kh1. After much better 20.Qf1 the game goes on.
