Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-02-12  backrank: One more of those incorrect game scores.

Of course, White's 13th move hasn't been 13. Qc2, but Qc1, since otherwise 14. Bg5 wouldn't work at all!

Aug-10-20  jith1207: Well, this time, I saw this in pun voting booth yesterday but didn't understand the reference.

So what's up?

  OhioChessFan: What a beat down of a game.. A groaner of a pun.
Aug-10-20  jith1207: ****************

Rub a dub dub, three fools in a tub

Leb e dev dub, three pieces in a tub

Aug-10-20  Brenin: Rub-a-dub-dub,
Three maids in a tub,
And who you think were there?
The butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker,
All of them gone to the fair.

[A "tub" was a medieval peep-show.]

Aug-10-20  Cheapo by the Dozen: So "Three MEN in a tub" is an expurgated/meaning-changed version? I never knew that!
Aug-10-20  GlennOliver: I console myself that even Lebedev, no doubt an accomplished player, didn't spot that the final move was instant checkmate.
Aug-10-20  mravikiran: 14...Ne7 was really bad. I thought with 14...Bf6 Black was better.
Aug-10-20  Ironmanth: Wonderful attack and finish! Thanks, chessgames. Y'all stay safe out there this week. Keep playing hard, playing fair.

  offramp: It's an unusual checkmate; a type of Good Anarchist mate (queen against king with one or two pawns).

  Breunor: Mravkiran, Computer thinks 14 Ne7 is best:

1) +1.28 (28 ply) 14...Ne7 15.e4 f4 16.gxf4 c6 17.Rd6 hxg5 18.Nxg5+ Kg8 19.Rfd1 Qa5 20.Rxd7 Bxd7 21.Rxd7 Bh6 22.Ne6 Nc8 23.Nc7 Nb6 24.Rd6 Kh7 25.Qd1 exf4 26.Nxe8 Rxe8 27.Rd7+ Bg7 28.Rxb7 Qg5 29.h4 Qxh4 30.Qd6 Qg5 31.Qc7 Rg8 32.Ne2 Nxc4 33.Qd7 Ne5 34.Qh3+ Qh5 35.Nxf4 Qxh3 36.Bxh3

On Bf6 we have:

1) +2.52 (22 ply) 15.Bxh6 f4 16.gxf4 Kxh6 17.fxe5+ Bg5 18.Nxg5 Qxg5 19.f4 Qh4 20.Ne4 Kg7 21.Qc3 Rf8 22.e6+ Nf6 23.Ng5 Re8 24.Qe3 Bxe6 25.Nxe6+ Kh8 26.Bxc6 bxc6 27.Rd3 Qh5 28.Qe5 Qxe5 29.fxe5 Rxe6 30.Rxf6 Rxe5

both players are inaccurate (relative to a 3000+ computer) but the first really bad move was 13 ... Re8 which allowed 14 Bg5 to be so strong. With a simple move the game is close.

1) +0.15 (26 ply) 13...a5 14.Nb5 e4 15.Ne1 Nb4 16.Qd2 Na6 17.f3 Qe7 18.fxe4 Nf6 19.exf5 Bxf5 20.Bd4 c6 21.g4 Be6 22.Nc3 Bxc4 23.Nf3 Nd5 24.Bxg7 Qxg7 25.g5 Qe7 26.gxh6
