Mar-03-05  iron maiden: For whatever reason Aeroflot always seems to produce several attacking masterpieces each year.
Apr-26-05  notyetagm: Does anyone know which game won the brilliancy prize this year at the 2005 Aeroflot Open? Was it this game?
Apr-26-05  notyetagm: 38 d5! 1-0 and I think that the <rule of the common square> means that either the White d- or h-pawn queens by force. An endgame expert help me out here.
Apr-26-05  iron maiden: I believe it was this game that won the brilliancy prize, yes.
Apr-26-05  aw1988: <iron maiden> My guess is the first Aeroflot was exciting, and some players decided to try it again, and so on...
May-06-05  maoam: This game has been annotated by Sutovsky:
May-06-05  Shams: <notyetagm> d5 is hardly forced; h6 or g4 or Kg3 win easily also. black is seven moves from queening his b-pawn and that's plenty of time for white to win. even if white had no g-pawn black should still resign.

<iron maiden, aw1988> agreed, it's a big tournament because it's been a big tournament. There are just so many strong Russian players who don't have enough opportunities to tear into each other. I couldn't even name another strong Russian open tournament.

May-06-05  Shams: <maoam> thanks for the link.

excerpt: Sutovsky gives 17...Ng6 as black's last chance to defend, more or less. But after the game he found 16...Ng6!! 17.Nxf7 Nxf4! and black has no discovered check that justifies his piece. I guess in this line if 17...Be3 hxg5 18.Bxg5 and black is one tempo ahead. "Fortunately, my daring play that quite often costs half-points in a tournament table and points in the rating list, had completely paid its way at the Aeroflot Open, where I managed to achieve one of the greatest successes in my chess career".
