Dec-15-06  Gryznx: white's queenside pieces are all crowded and embarrassed
Dec-15-06  artemis: Grynx: I have a feeling that your comment was old, but as of move 25, white looks like he is fine, if not winning.
Dec-15-06  Shajmaty: White is slightly better after 26. Bxd3, i.m.o.
Dec-15-06  Gryznx: artemis, Alekseev really solved his problems. I think he's winning now.
Dec-15-06  Gryznx: 30.Ne5! good move especially for quick chess
Dec-15-06  artemis: indeed: I play this line of the ruy lopez as white, and I have seen how ugly my position can look on the queenside until I can force a single knight away either via trade, or attack on the kingside, then I can typically attack with great ferocity.

  chrisowen: ah well, a return to the classic 2 bish, 2 knight kid like Botty/Geller
Dec-15-06  artemis: chrisowen: look again
Premium Chessgames Member
  chrisowen: and the sac exchange a pawn up
Dec-15-06  Shajmaty: Did Black resign after 32. Qf4?
Dec-15-06  Karpova: Looks good for Alekseev.
Premium Chessgames Member
  chrisowen: the new geller, a moot point i know
Dec-15-06  Shajmaty: <Shajmaty: Did Black resign after 32. Qf4?> Sorry, I meant 33. Qf4. White is winning...
Dec-15-06  Gouki: with only approximately 4 minutes left on the clock, can this game have a decisive winner? i predict alexseev would win
Dec-15-06  Shajmaty: What's the increment? 10"?
Dec-15-06  Shajmaty: No hope for Blak now...
Dec-15-06  amadeus: 36... Kg7 = 1-0
Dec-15-06  artemis: if Ra8+ is not played, then white would be in serious danger of losing. e.g. Ke1? Bc3+ Kd1?? Bb3#

  cu8sfan: This must be the least kibitzed on live game. Maybe the announcement did come a little late.
Dec-15-06  Gouki: The new Russian Champion, GM Evgeny Alekseev.
Dec-15-06  Gryznx: congratulations to Evgeny! Everybody thought Svidler would be a shoe-in but you can't underestimate all these ferocious little youngsters these days.
Dec-15-06  Scarecrow: <cu8sfan> Yeah, I guess many premium members see an empty page in 'respected kibitzers' mode :)

However, I for one have been expecting these live games since last week or so even without an announcement. Last year the final round broadcast of the Russian Championship made up for a great day here with lots of fun. I was preparing for the same.

BTW, congratulations to Alekseev.

Dec-21-06  LIFE Master AJ: The move, 30.Ne5 is very nice.
Mar-04-07  notyetagm: <artemis: if Ra8+ is not played, then white would be in serious danger of losing. e.g. Ke1? Bc3+ Kd1?? Bb3#>

The ability of the <TWO BISHOPS> to promote a passed pawn is awesome.

And your variation does end in mate but via ♔d1 ♗b3+ ♔c1 d2+ ♔b1 d1=♖#.

  plang: 19 Rg3 was first played in Volokitin-Vescovi Bermuda 2003 (game not included in this database). Black played 21..Nbd3?! in that game and went on to win.
