  patzer2: Wow! This game by the newly crowned World correspondence chess champion is a great lesson in how to play with the extra piece in exchange for a three pawn deficit. Umansky demonstrates great technique and skill in accomplishing this difficult task in correspondence play.

I suppose some players will be cranking up their Fritz 8 software to see if white's play is sound. For now, I'm content to offer a tip of the hat and congratualations to the new world correspondence champion -- Mikhail Umansky.

Aug-23-08  Red October: 10...Qxe5 would have been interesting
Aug-23-08  whiteshark: Is "Let other people do your work" not a typical male strategy ?
Feb-26-09  RandomVisitor: Should the world team expect 6.Bg2? Possibly...
Feb-26-09  WhiteRook48: congratulations to the person who thinks he will win the World Team. Umansky's next move will probably be 6. Bg2
Feb-26-09  RandomVisitor: P Tregubov vs Pavasovic, 2008 continued 10...Qxe5 and on to a draw.
Mar-04-09  ajile: 8..Nxc3 is better.
Apr-08-21  rwbean: Agree, looks like 10... ♕xd1+ will lose especially against someone like Umansky, evaluates to around +1.7 with SF13, while 10... ♕xe5 might draw. And 8... ♘xc3 is better.
