  perfidious: <Whitehat> Never went to the GTM page till your prompt, but have submitted this game. Thank you sir!
Jan-21-13  Whitehat1963: You're very welcome. I think you'll find that you'll enjoy playing Guess the Move. Over the years I think I've placed about 2,000 games in the database, mostly famous games, those of the highest-level players, or games with somewhat baffling move orders (in my opinion), but my skills aren't such that I'm good at finding really tough ones. In any event, enjoy yourself!
Jul-27-13  Xeroxx: Cool game.
Aug-08-13  EvanTheTerrible: Cool.
Aug-09-13  hedgeh0g: Quite possibly the quickest rout of a GM who didn't hang a piece in the opening. Although, admittedly, Black played like a complete amateur here, Kurnosov prosecuted his attack brilliantly and some of the variations after 13.Rxe6! are particularly aesthetic.

I think making this tomorrow's GotD would serve as a fitting tribute to this inspiring player.

  keypusher: Lovely. f6-f7 mate after 14....Bxc6 is the same as could have occurred at the end of this game

Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2013

which I never thought I'd see once, let alone twice.

Dec-28-13  hudapri: Was there a chance this was preparation? I don't know the Sicilian but it seems like a forcing line.
May-31-15  Poisonpawns: <hudapri Was there a chance this was prepration?> Yes; a lack of preparation.
May-31-15  Conrad93: The premium membership is worth it just for Guess The Move and the Opening Explorer alone.
May-31-15  I Like Fish: cool...
hello xeroxx...
hola evan...
Oct-30-15  Mating Net: 11.d5 is one of the best examples of forcing open lines against the enemy King.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Never understood why the Byrne Variation (4.Bg5) never became the primary weapon for White vs. the Pirc. In fact, I gave up the Pirc because I trusted of Black's responses to the Byrne--even though no one ever played it in a game against me!
Mar-28-16  Razgriz: 15. ... Qxd7
16. f7+ Kxf7 or Kf8
17. Qxd7+

and Good luck trying to defend against that attack

Mar-28-16  Razgriz: Whoops. I pasted the wrong line. Sorry

15. ... Qxd7
16. f7+ Kxf7
17. Qxd7+ Kf8 (if Kg8, then Bc4#)
18. Qe7+ Kg8
19. Bc4#

Other option is..
15. ... Qxd7
16. f7+ Kg8
17. Qxd7 Rd8
18. Qxd8#

I like the pun, goes well with how he broke down the door and he didn't even have to use the king side pieces.

Mar-28-16  not not: 11... Na4?? I don't get it. Can you violate someone's half like that? Can you kick the door to someone's house and walk in just like that?

what was wrong with grabing white pawn on d5 instead? the white pawn is a criminal being in black half, why is black commiting the same crime with Na4?

what does computer say about this move? it defies logic

Mar-28-16  not not: oh I see it now Qc6 check and capture knight via pin
Mar-28-16  not not: perhaps it was better to kill that little criminal on f6 on the spot with 9...Nf6

why to spare him and let him terrorise local population from f6?

Mar-28-16  morfishine: Impressive demolition <13.Rxe6+> exploding Black's position. Surreal and unique position after <14.dxe6> with two-connected pawns on the 6th rank

Great way to start the week!

  mjmorri: If 11...Nxd5, then 12.Qc6+ and the Knight is gone because the e6 pawn defending it is pinned.

  kevin86: Black can take the queen, but is then mated by two pawns!
Mar-28-16  SamAtoms1980: Hard to believe this was a game between two 2500+ players.

  scormus: guys can we get this straight, the one playing Black was a GM? do they do match fixing in chess as well?
Mar-28-16  catlover: The pun is "I'll huff and I'll puff"...I guess CG is referring to the demolition move 13. Rxe6, blowing down the "house" around the king. I guess that makes Kurnosov the Big Bad Wolf.
Sep-07-16  clement41: Simply gorgeous tactics!

  GrahamClayton: 14...Bc6 15. f7# would be a pretty checkmate.
