Mar-19-04  Dillinger: Another great Zukertort variation miniature.

  kevin86: Pillsbury:make sure when the fire is out-it isn't out. Just when white's attack seems at an end-he delivers the coup de grace.

By the way,was Pillsbury related to Yogi Berra?

Mar-20-04  Dillinger: Hey the game I submitted is game of the day! I feel so important now. There is a nice feature on this opening by Mark Diesen on which features this game and others.
Mar-20-04  PAWNTOEFOUR: now this is the way i like 'em lol..
Aug-13-07  saillsha: man, that bishop on b2 is so powerful.
Aug-13-07  JeLiFF7: wow. yusupov forces open a hole in the castle and takes advantage of it

  An Englishman: Good Evening: With c2-c3 instead of b2-b3 the position becomes a Colle, but games like this make me think that perhaps Mr. Z had the right idea.
Aug-13-07  sanyas: How did this become Game of the Day twice?
Aug-13-07  patzerboy: Well. Obviously, Black went wrong somewhere--else everyone would play this opening ("1.d4 and wins!")--but what exactly were his worst mistakes? He was in trouble right out of the opening, so how should he have played?
Aug-13-07  Manic: I guess a6 and b5 looked like a waste of time considering what happened in the game. 17...Nh7 looks to be a mistake since that's where white's first tactic appears.

  Honza Cervenka: 17...Nh7 was a blunder but the position doesn't seem to be comfortable for black anyway. Maybe 9...Nxe5 10.dxe5 Ne4 would have been better.
Aug-13-07  RandomVisitor: Perhaps 17...Qc7 equalizes for black:

Analysis by Rybka 2.3.2a mp up:

17...Qc7 18.Qd4 Qc5 19.Qf4 Qc7 20.Be5 Qd8 21.Bxg6 fxg6 22.Nxe6 Qd7 23.Qh6 Qxe6 24.Qxg6+ (0.00) Depth: 20

Aug-13-07  soberknight: Yikes, that was quick! I might not have played 15. Ng5 to start the mating attack because 15...h6 seems to push back the knight. Of course, it's not so simple: 16. Nh7! forks knight and rook (the knight on f6 is attacked twice and defended once). A very unusual move in the footnotes - White can take Black's knight, but Black dare not take White's.
Aug-13-07  xeroxmachine: Rubinstein has an opening named after him I didn't know that anyway I have seen it in a lot of his games and he was a great player.

Nice game by the way white put some pressure and black gets nervous and makes mistakes white takes full advantage of it.

  kevin86: What looked like a sharp move to head off an attack instead turns into a nasty pitfall. The defenders crumble for black's unfortunate king. AND in a hurry.
Aug-13-07  apple pi: 15...g6 and 16...h5 seemed weak. With the g-pawn still on g7 the threat of Blackburne's mate would never have appeared.
Aug-13-07  RandomVisitor: A final look at black's last drawing attempt: 17...Qc7

17...Qc7 18.f4 Ne4 19.Bxe4 dxe4 20.Be5 Qc5 21.Qg3 Bd5 22.c3 Rcd8 23.Qh3 Ba8 24.Rd4 = (0.06) Depth: 25

  fm avari viraf: It seems that Black without giving a second played 17...Nh7 thinking that the White's Knight on g5 is pinned but little did he realise that Yusupov could play 18.Qxh5! with a mating attack. After this, it's difficult for Black to survive.
Jan-28-08  parmetd: on move 22 why not Rxc2? if hxg5 then Rxb2. If Bxc2 then Nh3+ leading to mate.
Jan-28-08  parmetd: nevermind that haha d5 pawn blocks the mate idea.
Oct-06-13  parisattack: At move 14 Black has about the ideal short castle protective arrangement...a couple of quiet but brilliant moves and that is more preparatory move by White and a Q-sac decide it all quickly. Lovely game, certainly worth real study.

Excellent analysis of this game by FM Lilov for, also.

  takchess: Perhaps we may return to this game as a potd from 18 on. A nice mating net.
