Nov-26-11  WiseWizard: Please change this pun, this games is way too for good for this pun.
Nov-26-11  Billy Vaughan: <30. Nxg6! and winning, now that's the beauty!>

Wow, that line's amazing.

Nov-26-11  bischopper: hello everyone its my first time
Nov-26-11  bischopper: I want to know what is the manoubre lucerna
Nov-27-11  Ulhumbrus: <bischopper: hello everyone its my first time>


<I want to know what is the manoubre lucerna >

The google translator translates the words <manobre lucerna> from Portuguese into English as the words <Lucerne manoeuvre>

Do you mean something called the Lucerne manoeuvre, or do you mean the Lucena position in Rook and pawn endings?

Nov-27-11  Everyone: <bischopper> We've all been there!
Nov-27-11  cludi: good game, Levon!

  kevin86: The array of pawns lead to a second queen. (or maybe even a third)
Dec-03-11  tal7: It's hard to find the next move after 42. Qxh4. The purpose of this is actually to make passed h-pawn. awesome!

  LIFE Master AJ: This is THE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! most incredible game ... its also a Grunfeld Defense/Opening system.

It will probably be the sister game to my November "Game of The Month." (Nakamura vs Svidler, 2011)

  Colonel Mortimer: Someone forgot their medication

  LIFE Master AJ: I don't take meds, you do.

But I don't know why you bother, since your frontal lobotomy Vince Jefferson, you really don't need them.

  FSR: <arsen387: Aronian on after-the-game press conference said that if 24... b6 then he calculated and was going to play the Q sac 25. Qxd6 Rxd6 26. bxc6 Rd8 (26... Qc7 27. Nb4 Rxd1+ 28. Rxd1 Bf8 29. Rd7 Qc8 30. Bh4 ) 27. c7 Rc8 28. Nxe5 Rxc7 29. Rxc7 Qxc7 30. Nxg6! and winning, now that's the beauty!>

Gorgeous! This beautiful game has a horrid pun.

  FSR: According to Avrukh (p. 217 of Vol. 1 of his recent treatise on the Gruenfeld), after 16...Bxf3 17.Qxf3 Qxf3 18.gxf3 Rad8 19.Be4 Bxb2 20.Rxd8 Rxd8 21.Rc2 Ba3 22.Bxc6 bxc6 23.Rxc6 f6, "Black has equalized comfortably, Portisch-Arakhamia-Grant, Roquebrune 1998."

  FSR: <Colonel Mortimer: Someone forgot their medication>

As you know, the U.S. doesn't have universal healthcare. Many poor people who desperately need anti-psychotic medication can't afford to buy it.

  LIFE Master AJ: I expect you are referring to your own inability to purchase the drugs that you so obviously and desperately need.

As a Christian ... AND and ex-cop ... I try not to do drugs, even when (maybe) the doctor wants me to take them.

I did without driving for several years, because I did not want to take meds. And I do not regret it one bit. ALL drugs have nasty side effects. I love it when a Doctor tells you that there MIGHT be a tiny chance of liver failure ... go gamble with your innards, not mine. (Last I checked, you need a liver to live.)

Dec-04-11  King Death: <AJ> But you're an addict. You need the drug of attention. Without it you'd wither up and die.

This game had a lot of interesting tactics.

Premium Chessgames Member
  LIFE Master AJ: A BRILLIANT game by Aronian, in a year or so, I expect this to be a Saturday or Sunday puzzle ... ... ...

  moronovich: <I try not to do drugs, even when (maybe) the doctor wants me to take them.>

Listen to the doctor <AJ>. But perhaps he has given up.Too.

Dec-05-11  TheFocus: Don't do the drugs <AJ>.

They might make you normal and then you would become a decent person, who listens to criticism with Christian charity in your heart. You would become a person with humility...

Hey, who am I kidding? ALL the meds in the world wouldn't help you!

Since the Akobian game is drawn, I have an analysis task for you ... IF you are interested.

In the above game, after 10...e5!; would you care to do an analysis of 11.Bd6!? winning the exchange.

Both players by-passed this possibility, esp. White. (So I assume there might be a reason for this!?!?)

RandomVisitor: <LMAJ>Ok, I will take a look.>

RandomVisitor: <LMAJ>after 11.Bd6 early results show <Rybka4.1> [-0.01] d=22 11...exd4 12.Bxf8 dxc3 13.Bxg7 cxb2 14.Rc2 Kxg7 15.Rxb2 b5 16.Be2 a6 17.Nf3 c5 18.0-0 roughly even. If we slide forward to 15.Rxb2, we have [+0.00] d=27 15...b5 16.Be2 a6 17.Nf3 c5 18.0-0 Qe7 19.a4 b4 20.Qa1 Kg8 21.Rd1 Ne4 22.Rc2 Bb7 23.a5 h6 24.Bc4 Re8 25.Qb2 Nc3 26.Rxc3 Bxf3 27.gxf3

  LIFE Master AJ: Looks like the exchange sack was worth more exploring ... not sure how much of this both players saw OTB.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: A knight sacrifice pays off for Aronian (literally, as in prize money).
Oct-08-14  SpiritedReposte: Oh my...AJ a cop? Makes sense with his ego and wannabe dominance. I bet he would shoot/taze someone for rolling through a stop sign.

You sure you don't mean security guard? You know the ones who get laughed at and beat up?

The intelligence level is about perfect for a cop, but that just scares me. AJ you should NEVER have an authority where lethal force is an option.
