Feb-01-04  Catfriend: I didn't find it now:( So I"ll have to think about more such games:)
Feb-01-04  ughaibu: Catfriend: Here're some more: D Rajkovic vs Z Jeraj, 1989 Jasnikowski vs F Borkowski, 1988 C Depasquale vs Chan Peng Kong, 1986 L Hazai vs L Karsa, 1976
Feb-02-04  Catfriend: Wow! The queen-sac is still in the book! 16..♖:♘a3 is better for black. 22.g4 seems over-agressive. 26..♘d5? is much inferior to 26..♘e5:g4! Now. white should play 27.♕h5 f6 28.♖h3 with great advatage. Instead, he plays 27.c4?. 32.a5?? is a serious mistake. 32.h:g5 would let white survive almost equally. 38..h3 wins, but not the best way. 38..♗e2 39.♕a8 ♖g2+ 40.♔e3 ♗h5! shortens the game. At the end, black misses a faster finish several times. but it already isn't important!
May-14-04  ughaibu: Lawrence: Has Junior been subjected to these Catfriend collected games?
May-14-04  Lawrence: <ughaibu>, no, at the moment he's delving into the fathomless depths of John Nunn's "Understanding Chess Move by Move." Doesn't always see eyeball to eyeball with Dr. N.
May-14-04  ughaibu: I see.
May-14-04  Lawrence: <ugi>, eyeball to eyeball?
May-14-04  ughaibu: Amai kangae.
May-15-04  Lawrence: <ugi>, are you WHAT?
Apr-13-05  Whitehat1963: Excellent game. I especially like 22...g5! in reply to white's unfortunate 22. g4.
Apr-13-05  aw1988: White delayed, and Renet capitalized.
Sep-16-08  jovack: white should have mounted a harder attack.

black did have minor pieces to compensate for the queen, but they weren't developed

white let black come into full swing and payed the price.... a good game though

Sep-16-08  PolishPentium: Suggestion: 43 c7 (threatening mate on g6, and also conveniently pinning the Knight)
Sep-16-08  deadlysin: excellent play
Sep-16-08  Mattheus: Help?!
I can see the obvious mating threat after 14. Nxb5, but I don't understand either white or black's 13th move.

Why play 13.Bb5? I don't see an obvious way to trap Black's queen.

13. .. axb5 seems to be a blunder? It lets white place his horse on its most dangerous square threatening mate from two places and threatening the Queen. Wouldn't hxg5 have been far better?

Sep-16-08  arnaud1959: <PolishPentium: Suggestion: 43 c7 (threatening mate on g6, and also conveniently pinning the Knight)> I don't want to give an analyse tree like a machine. As a human I would start a series of check with 43.-♕h2+ and now:

44.♔e1 ♕g1+ and black wins because of the killing check on the d-file with the ♖ or 45.any♕f1 doesn't work either.

44.♔e3 ♕g1+ with the same result (45.♕f2 ♕xf2 and ♖xc7) (45.♔e4 ♕d4#)

44.♔f1 ♗e2+ 45.♕xe2 ♕xe2+ 46.♔xe2 ♖xc7 should be the safest way to win.

Sep-16-08  PolishPentium: <arnaud1959> Thank you for the commentary. Obviously my move was not a particularly great suggestion, but then again the things i suggest rarely are. Sigh. Thanks again, though.
Sep-16-08  SuperPatzer77: White resigns because 47. Ke4 Ra4+, 48. Kf5 (or 48. Kf3) Rxg4, 49. Kxg4 Qg2+, 50. Kf5 Qf3+ (winning White's c-pawn and forcing the Queen trade), 51. Ke6 Qxc6+, 52. Kf5 (a - see note below:) Qxf6+, 53. Kxf6 e4 (Black's e-pawn goes queening)

Note: a) 52. Kf7 Qd7+, 53. Kg8 (53. Qe7 Qxe7+, 54. Kg8 Qf8#) Qh7#

Jan-02-09  WhiteRook48: Renet had that high a rating I'm surprised I never heard of him. But then again, my main site I'm hooked on is CG.
Jun-29-11  Tridel: I should try the Poison Pawn Accepted Variation more often! I love these wild games!
