Apr-09-06  psmith: <al wazir>

In your line, Fritz 5.32 gives 28... Qxc2+ (instead of 28... Qb5+) 29. Kf1 Rxe3 30. Qxe3 Qd1+ followed by c2, or 30. fxe3 Rb8 31. Nd4 Qa2 and White has no defense against Rb1. There are other variations, but no defense.

Apr-09-06  Whatsagambit: Can someone post a winning refutation of 18.b4? Does white lose the queen in this continuation? Thanks
Premium Chessgames Member
  pawn to QB4: After 18.b4 I'd go 18...Qxa3 19.bxc5 Ba2+ 20.Ka1 Rxe4 with a winning attack because 21.Qxe4 fails to 21...Bd5+.
Apr-09-06  mymt: 18.b4 Qxa3 19.bxc5 Ba2+ 20.Ka1 Bc4+ wins Q
Apr-09-06  jperr75108: An awful pun, only because the song is so awful though.
Apr-09-06  Jim Bartle: What will it be tomorrow, "Can't You Hear Me Knaaking"?

  suenteus po 147: <Jim Bartle> More likely a flashback to the '80s: "Oh! Me So Humpy!"

Apr-09-06  Jim Bartle: Excellent.

Or a tournament summary: "Let it Bled"

  al wazir: <psmith>: Thanks. OK, 24. Bxc4 doesn't work.

How about 23. Bxc4 bxc4 24. Rd4 ? The idea is to swap off that nasty ♗, which manages to be in the wrong place (the right one from black's point of view) repeatedly. If 24...Qa3+ then 25. Kd2 c3+ 26. Kd3. I concede that d3 is not the safest square on the board for white's ♔, but black's ♙s form a protective screen against the black ♖s.

Apr-09-06  psmith: <al wazir> Fritz again: 23. Bxc4 bxc4 24. Rd4 Qa3+ mates:

25. Kd1 c3 and White only holds off mate for a few moves by throwing away the knight on e5 and the Rook and Queen on the a-file.

25. Kd2 Qa5+ 26. c3 (26. Kd1 -- or Kc1 -- c3 as above) Qa2+ 27. Kd1 (or Kc1) Rab8 and mates.

Apr-09-06  crptone: I like the tempo-saving bishop and queen checks in this game. It's comparable to a windmill
Apr-09-06  Whatsagambit: Thanks pawn to QB4 & mymt
Apr-09-06  blingice: On white's 23rd, it seems like Deepan would WANT to trade bishops to slow the attack. Trading rooks is pointless.
Premium Chessgames Member
  al wazir: <psmith>: I'm running out of ideas (no prizes for guessing how the game would have turned out if I had been playing white).

My last try: In the game as played, 36. Nb3. If 36...Qb2+ then 37. Kd2 Qc3+ 38. Kc1 a7 39. Bf5. After 39...a1=Q+ 40. Nxa1 Qxa1+ 41. Kd2 Qxd1+ 42. Kxd1, white is two ♙s down with nothing much to show for it. Do you or Fritz see a better line for black?

  keypusher: I'm sure you'll all be glad to learn that <Multi-platinum 2-time Grammy-winners The Black Eyed Peas cross an historic threshold as their hit single "My Humps" passes 2-Million million Master Tones sales in the US this week according to Universal Music Mobile, a division of Universal Music Group (UMG) – making it the top selling Master Tone of all time, and the first to reach this 2- Million million landmark.> Especially Jim Bartle.

Apr-09-06  Jim Bartle: "Make you scream
Make you scream!"

Make ME scream...

Apr-09-06  psmith: <al wazir> I take no credit for this, it's all Fritz. In your last line, after 41. Kd2 Qc3+ mates: 42. Ke2 Bc4# or 42. Kc1 Ra8 leading to mate with Ra1.
Apr-10-06  dakgootje: <keypusher> Brilliant link you gave there, no offence intented but it was quite....entertaining ;-) Especially the comments, first you see its the official Black Eyed Peas site and then all kind of people comment that they totally LOVE the strange, as you would think only the people who hate the BEP would go to the site to comment ;-)

Yups, quite interesting how such an ammount of people can say that little in that ammount of place to write =)

  kevin86: No matter what white moved,his troubles continue to Deepan-lol

The bishop, pawns, and queen bugged white's king to an early end.

Apr-10-06  Ragh: I like the sacrifices similar to the one on move 18..Bxa3. That paved way for the demolition of White's King-side pawns, and thus exposing the white King to more lethal attacks from Black's forces.

That was an impressive victory by Humpy though.

Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: An astonishing ♗sacrifice. Afterwards black didn't start a direct mate attack but pushed the a+b pawns slowly forward.
Dec-13-10  dale2222222: good game and good pun
Dec-13-10  dale2222222: what follows 26.Kd2?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Sastre: 26.Kd2 Bxd3 27.Re1 (27.cxd3 Qb2+ 28.Qc2 Re2+ 29.Kxe2 Qxc2+) Be4 28.Ng5 Qb4+ 29.Kc1 h6 .
