Showdown time

It seems we should have a (deeper!) look at WC-Quarter Final Riccio-Zubac - it is showdown time! The both last games are equal for all the 33 moves and Riccio has just to draw for the match win - easy? I'm not sure.

Game #17834 or #17836 for best game!

This would be a much better choice than that one at the moment (#15864). I would like to vote for it, but I can't.

Showdown Number 2

WC-Knockout Final Ingersol-Utesch: Ingersol has just to draw the both last games. Most games in this final has been much better for him, but not good enough for a win. And at the end there is a single game with a very complicate position (#17894) which is making the situation extremly thrilling! No one can be sure what will happen.

Best game

Game 17894

Hi Wolfgang I looked at this game last week - a nice game but I am not sure how complicated it is now ....rooks are generally better than bishops and it does help to have a king near the action!! Its like having an extra piece.

Game 17894

Hi Andrew, I analyzed this position without an absolute certain result yet. White is clear better, but the way of win is very, very small (if it exist). Enjoy looking what will happen in this game next time!

Andrew Stephenson    (2008-05-05 14:18:51)
Will follow

Yes actually I did not find the way either - but got the feeling their might be a problem like win somewhere!! Good luck to both players

Wolfgang Utesch    (2008-05-05 16:14:09)
Amazing ....

..., solution for some variants is covered by a problem-like position, where engines can't help. I found it after analyzing this position and the forced way about 40 hours. A lttle bit knowledge and a lot of work and luck, that is the mixture you need for a win in high level correspondence chess game.

Luck ?!

> A lttle bit knowledge and a lot of > work and luck, that is the mixture > you need for a win in high level > correspondence chess game. So you think that luck is an integral part of the game ?! Such a statment and my chess world view collapses :-) But sometimes I've the same strange feeling: chess is a game of luck !? :-)

Andrew Stephenson    (2008-05-06 01:52:34)
Problem like win

Yes I thought so - I felt there was something there! Maybe it seems like luck because its not easy to explain how the answer is found it seems to be stumbled across.
