Aug-10-04  Chesspatch: once, when i was young, i played a game of chess where a piece which is checking cannot be taken. needless to say, it was very frustrating.
Aug-10-04  nyarlathotepcraft: The knight moves 6 followed by a second 7 by white are a bad waste of time in the opening, and it just leads to a night exchange, and doubled pawns for white. Move seven by white is very poor. White then retreats with his bishop AND his other night, and all the time, black gets to dominate the board with his pawns. I cannot believe move 15 by white - wasting yet more time by retreating his knight. Why does white resign? 27 rxq, 27..pxr+, 28 kg1, and white is a queen up???? Please someone explain why I am wrong, assuming that I am.

  tpstar: <GMPetrosian> Hello! Welcome to the group! But don't be surprised if the Webmasters make you select a different username immediately unless you really are a GM and really are named Petrosian. Sorry.
Aug-10-04  marekg248: Now I understand, btw very interesting game, the four black pawns after 18...h5 look very impressive. It seems to me white's nerves snapped - 19.Ra3?
Aug-10-04  alexandrovm: black delivers a checkmate 36. Rxg2 (only move) f3xg2+ (and the king can't scape f1 or h3, the g2 pawn prevents that) 37. (Kg1 or Kh2) Nf3++
Aug-10-04  alexandrovm: Donald was punished because he was just very passive in a Ruy Lopez game. Black completly dominated the game.
Aug-10-04  kevin86: To not resign would be a fate worse than death-Black not only wins white's queen,but also forces his own with the g-pawn

37 ♖xg2 fxg2+ 38 ♔g1 (or 38 ♔h2 ♘f3 is mate) ♘f3+ 39 ♔f2 ♘xe1 40 ♔xe1 (or 40 ♔g1 ♘f3+ and queens) g1(♕)+

Aug-10-04  PawnBlock: <nyarlathotepcraft>: 7. Nd5 is not as horrible as you portray. It does break the opening "rule" about moving a piece twice, however it also accomplishes at least two useful things:

1. The e-file becomes half opened. An imbalance that could have been used with something like 12. d4. (12. . . Bg5 isn't to be feared).

2.W gains central space with his intrusive, albeit doubled, pawn. (remember: "doubled" doesn't always = bad). The meddlesome pawn also serves to hinder Blacks use of his dark-squared B.

The "rules" we play by (besides the legal moves) are never to be followed blindly!

Aug-10-04  crafty: 37. ♖xg2 fxg2+ 38. ♔g1 ♘f3+ 39. ♔f2 ♘xe1 40. ♔xe1 g1=♕+ 41. ♔d2 ♖g2+ 42. ♔c3 ♕d4+ 43. ♔b3 ♕xd3+ 44. ♔b4 ♖g3 45. ♗e8+ ♔xe8 46. ♔a4 ♕xa3#   (eval -Mat10; depth 12 ply; 10M nodes)

Aug-10-04  iron maiden: <chesscookie> It's a play on the title of the movie, "Analyze This."

  Benzol: Pity they didn't play another game. It could have been called "Analyze That".
Aug-10-04  acirce: Is one of the players an actor in that or what?
Aug-10-04  iron maiden: No, I think they're just challenging us to analyze the game. (No, thanks.)
Jul-17-08  JonathanJ: i digged something out ;)
Dec-15-11  King Death: And <AnalyzeThis> hasn't even commented on this game? Unbelievable! He should be virtually flogged!
