Arnab Sengupta    (2008-05-21 18:21:19)

well Cirulis, i know that game...... i dont need the moves played in it....i want to ask if anybody has any better variation in that position.

Ilmars Cirulis    (2008-05-21 18:28:28)

Of course, it is not for you, Arnab.
It is for helpers - they need to know game after 26.Qxc3, don't they?

Arnab Sengupta    (2008-05-21 18:34:22)

o thanks.....but someone should help me......where is Thibault?

Ilmars Cirulis    (2008-05-21 19:21:42)

25.Nc3 dxc3 26.Qxc3 Qd4 27.Qf3 Ra7 (best) 28.axb5 Qf6
28.-- Rf6 is better, according Rybka.

Garvin Gray    (2008-05-21 19:44:20)

why do you ask for help with this game?

Ilmars Cirulis    (2008-05-21 19:49:19)


Arnab Sengupta    (2008-05-21 20:04:20)

well because i'm playing this position in a game.......

Arnab Sengupta    (2008-05-21 21:45:45)

how about 28...Bf5?

Garvin Gray    (2008-05-22 15:16:00)

well because i'm playing this position in a game.......


I think this is a bit of a no-no ie asking for the advice of others. My understanding is that the games are meant to be individual, not consultative. So you can not ask for the advice of others.

Thibault? What is your opinion/ruling?

Wolfgang Utesch    (2008-05-22 15:38:20)

I think, judgement of this behaviour is not a question of ruling but of decency!

Thibault de Vassal    (2008-05-22 16:09:58)

To ask for an advice is authorized by the rules.

Rodolfo d Ettorre    (2008-05-22 16:15:45)
Game ...

According with Crafty, 27. ... Rb8 is a better move.

Arnab Sengupta    (2008-05-22 17:50:45)

Chill guys!!!!!!!!!!! i'm not playing this game in FICGS or any server.....i'm playing it with my brother and we wanted to find some good defense for Balck, thats why i asked for your help!!!! Now if you people have so much problem with it, then i'll take that blame from you.....Whats the use in discussing chess position then???

Thibault de Vassal    (2008-05-22 18:08:10)

There's no problem, Arnab :) Everyone's free to discuss any position with anybody here. Everyone's choice.

Arnab Sengupta    (2008-05-22 18:23:25)

Thanks Thibault!

Ilmars Cirulis    (2008-05-23 05:47:01)
27.-- Rb8

It was losing after 28.Qc6, as I remember.

Michael Aigner    (2008-05-23 10:30:13)
White is simply better

Hi Arnab, in my opinion it is too late to look for improvements after move 26. I think white has just the better game (for ever) because of the unsafe black king. Regards Michael

Arnab Sengupta    (2008-05-27 16:53:56)

ok! so we came up with this variation- 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Nf3 c6 5.Bg5 h6 6.Bh4 dxc4 7.e4 g5 8.Bg3 b5 9.Be2 Bb7 10.O-O Nbd7 11.Ne5 Bg7 12.Nxd7 Nxd7 13.Bd6 a6 14.a4 e5 15.Bg4 exd4 16.e5 c5 17.Re1 Nxe5 18.Bxe5 O-O 19.Bxg7 Kxg7 20.Ne2 f5 21.Bh5 f4 22.b4 cxb3 23.Qxb3 Qd5 24.Qh3 Bc8 25.Nc3 dxc3 26.Qxc3+ Qd4 27.Qf3 Ra7 28.axb5 Rf6 29.h3 but now what? what should BLACK play here? Please i need your opinion to finish this variation. Do you think Black has any chance of Drawing the game here?

Arnab Sengupta    (2008-05-27 17:08:39)

Well two moves comes in mind for BLACK 29....Re6 or 29....Rc7 I think both moves holds fort for Black. What say?

Michael Aigner    (2008-05-27 18:35:33)
Sorry but white is going to win

I think black has a maximum 10 % drawing chances in this position. e.g. [Event "Blitz:120'"] [Site "PC"] [Date "????.??.??"] [Round "?"] [White "New game"] [Black "Naum 3.1"] [Result "*"] [PlyCount "65"] [TimeControl "7200"] {256MB, Hiarcs10.ctg, HOME-PC} 1. d4 d5 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. Nf3 c6 5. Bg5 h6 6. Bh4 dxc4 7. e4 g5 8. Bg3 b5 9. Be2 Bb7 10. O-O Nbd7 11. Ne5 Bg7 12. Nxd7 Nxd7 13. Bd6 a6 14. a4 e5 15. Bg4 exd4 16. e5 c5 17. Re1 Nxe5 18. Bxe5 O-O 19. Bxg7 Kxg7 20. Ne2 f5 21. Bh5 f4 22. b4 cxb3 23. Qxb3 Qd5 24. Qh3 Bc8 25. Nc3 dxc3 26. Qxc3+ Qd4 27. Qf3 Ra7 28. axb5 Rf6 29. h3 Qd6 (29... Re6 30. Qa3 Rxe1+ (30... Qd6 31. Rxe6 Bxe6 32. Rd1 Qe5 33. b6 Re7 34. Rc1 g4 35. hxg4 Rd7 36. Qa5 Qd6 37. Qxa6 and White wins) 31. Rxe1 Bf5 32. b6 and White wins) 30. Re8 Be6 31. h4 g4 32. Bxg4 Bf7 33. Rc8 and White is clearly better Regards Michael

Ilmars Cirulis    (2008-06-02 17:00:26)
Another one...

1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.Nc3 e6 5.e3 Nbd7 6.Bd3 dxc4 7.Bxc4 b5 8.Bd3 a6 9.e4 c5 10.e5 cxd4 11.Nxb5 Nxe5 12.Nxe5 axb5 13.O-O Qd5 14.Qe2 Rb8 15.Bg5 h6 16.Bh4 Bd6 17.f4 Kf8!

If not 17.-- Kf8!, white feels good. But Kf8... I can find anything against that. Any idea?

It's just opening analysis. :D
