   Mar-14-04 Helmer vs J Krejcik, 1917 (replies)
matrexius: This reminds me of the famous Fleissig - Schlechter game. In both games, Black lures White's queen onto the back rank and sacrifices both rooks to keep the queen away from what is important - the fact that Black is in the process of checkmating White's wayward king.
   Feb-25-04 Anderssen vs Dufresne, 1852 (replies)
matrexius: Calli, neither I nor Fritz 8 can find a forced mate for White after 19...Qh3.
   Feb-20-04 P Sternberg vs C Bloodgood, 1959 (replies)
matrexius: Actually, 9. c3 Bc5 is the Dilworth Variation. My bad. In this variation, and this game, Black typically trades knight and bishop for the rook and pawn on f2, and pressures f3 intensely via the f-file after it is opened with ...f6.

matrexius: 37. ...Ke8 38. Qg8+ Kd7 39. Rxf7+ Bxf7 40. Qxf7# The only move to stop immediate mate is 37. ...Rd6, but that of course loses material and doesn't help Black get back in the game at all. I should add that alvishope's insults are uncalled for and, moreover, unsubstantiated. ...

matrexius: One of those occasional examples where greed does NOT pay on the chessboard. pogo, 13. Bxc3 Nxc3+ 14. Kc1 Na4! (threatens Qe1#) 15. Qxb7+ Nd7 16. Nf3 Be3+ 17. Kb1 Rb8 18. Ka2 Nc3+ 19. Kb2 Rxb7 20. Nd4 Bxd4 21. e4 Nxb5+ 22. Kb3 Nc5+ 23. Ka2 Nc3# - analysis by Fritz 8 As you can ...
   Jan-20-04 Miles vs C Pritchett, 1982 (replies)
matrexius: Yes, Qc2 wins for Black. I suppose both sides overlooked that simple move.
   Jan-01-04 Paulsen vs Blackburne, 1873 (replies)
matrexius: Indeed, 10. Nxc7+ was totally okay for White. Fritz 8 confirms that there is no tactical refutation of this, which must be why Paulsen thought he couldn't play it. The only compensation Black would have would be to double White's kingside pawns after the trade on f3, but that is ...
