  suenteus po 147: <> I've tried to use the "suggest your correction" option on this page a couple of times before, but I don't think it's working. Anyway, the score is incorrect on this game (I know, because I posted it several months ago). It should be 25.Rfc1, not 25.Rc1.

  suenteus po 147: This game was really cool to me growing up (back before I knew anything even basic about chess) because after 27.h3, the board is set up in such a way that for the next ten moves, until 37.Qxf7 Rxf7, all white does is threaten. That's it. Just threatening. It's really dazzling to behold now after gaining some real understanding of the game. 28.Qb1 (I threaten to win a pawn!). 29.Qb6 (I threaten to win a bishop!). 30.Ra5 (I threaten 31.Ra7! Which is just another threat! Ha ha!). And so on. Etc. There are no exchanges, no sacrifices, just wood pushes that threaten. After 38.Be6, material is even, but white has the greater threat. Never once executed, it doesn't have to be.

We are finally getting around to cleaning out old error forms, while we design a new-improved error reporting system. Thanks for your help.
Mar-31-07  Resignation Trap: According to my source, "Selected Games (1926-1941)" by Goglidze, this game was played in the First Championship of the Caucasian Republics, and Black played on a few more moves. To wit: 38. Be6 fxe3 39. fxe3 Re7 40. Bxg8 Rxe3 41. Bxd5+ Kh7 42. Bxb7 1-0 .
Aug-20-07  sanyas: This is textbook minority attack. Black never takes any preventive measures or gets any counterplay going, and White executes the basic plan in the most standard and straightforward way possible.
