Aug-06-07  Infohunter: Interesting--a diagonal cross mate without the "Boden" setup, i.e., no Queen sac needed to pull it off.
Aug-06-07  underdoggum: never did understand any of the bourne movies

matt damon only appeals to me in comedies with jay & silent bob

Aug-06-07  RandomVisitor: Interesting would be 11...Qg3+ 12.(king moves) and then 12...Qxh2.

13...Nxe5 is also perhaps better for black.

Aug-06-07  Peter Johnson Ng: Who is Low Ying Min??? Any body know?
Aug-06-07  think: Why didn't black take on e5 with either piece on move 13?
Aug-06-07  dpacaba: <underdoggum: matt damon only appeals to me in comedies>

Well, I liked his part at Ocean's 11, 12, and 13.

  bright1: After 13. e5 Black can capture Nex5 or Qex5. RandomVisitor did an excellent job of providing analysis of these lines, but I just wanted to throw in my thoughths.

13. ... Qxe5 14. Nxc6 Bxc6 15. Bd4 followed by Bxg7

13. ... Nex5 14. Bf4 and the pin on e5 can be very awkward for Black. Note that if Black plays Nd3+ White can just respond with cxd3. I hope my thinking is right, I didn't use a computer to check my lines.

  bright1: Sorry for the double post, I just noticed that after 13. e5 if Black plays Qxe5 White can respond with Ndxb5 and the threat of Qxd7+ followed by Qxb7 looks very strong.
Aug-06-07  outplayer: The first Rybka line provided by <Random Visitor> is very interesting. Following the line without the board I could conclude, without the fear of beeing obvious, to play chess very well you have to look not only to every piece in the board but to every square too.

  kevin86: The Bourne books and movies are quite different;the books are mostly about the thinking processes of Jason Bourne-a secret agent who lost his memory. The movies-the first two,anyway,I haven't seen the third-are more about an America version of James Bond.

The action here begins with a rook for bishop sac that coses black two tempi with the queen,this is never recovered.

To Bourne fans:the "poisoned"rook led black inro a "Webb" of intrigue,that he could never escape.

Aug-06-07  Rodrigo Gutierrez: <underdoggum: matt damon only appeals to me in comedies with jay & silent bob> LOL, man am I glad to discover I'm not the only one!

Aug-06-07  pcvandelay: i love that white didn't go for the queen pin on 17
Aug-06-07  CapablancaFan: <pcvandelay: i love that white didn't go for the queen pin on 17> Actually 17.Re1 allows the queen to escape. For example 17.Re1 Ne5 18.f4 Qc5 19.Rxe5+ Kd1. Don't get me wrong black still had plenty of problems, but the end result is less clear.

Sep-28-10  sevenseaman: With black Q needed to be lured away from the defense of d7 which is under fire, I was excited about 15. Bc5 d6 16. exd6 Qc7 17 N b6 with decisive advantage for White. The text too brings the bacon home though.
