Well played Jerry! That's one of your best 1st places. With a 5-2 score against Ferrari it was a deserved 1st place as well!! :D

John IM Fins all ready asked him awhile back and he declined. But yes these two playing each other would be spectacular. Maybe under Chess Rivals category.

D5-C3, B2-C3, B4-C3, (D2-E1 or D2-D3?) C7-A5!!, C1-B1, D7-C5, and i don't see how the mate on B2 is prevented.
Unless: White's queen stays on the 2nd rank to support B2 (after C2-B3?)?
D5-C3, B2-C3, B4-C3, D2-E2!, C7-A5, C1-B1, A5-A3, E3-C1, A8-B8+, B1-A1?, B8-B2+!, E2-C4, D7-B6, and black wins. B1-A1 fails, lol, but D4-B3 doesn't. This line is nonsense, but the cute rook move to B2 and then knight to B6 are amusing. Hmmmm…

D5-C3, B2-C3, B4-C3, D2-E2, C7-A5, C1-B1, A8-B8+, D4-B3, F8-C5! (THIS!), E3-C1, C5-A3 (black offers repetition draw), (if D2-D3?, A3-C5 repetition offered, white queen must be prevented from supporting C1)
> White attack line: F4-E6, A3-C1, E6-C5+, E8-F8, C5-D7+, C8-D7, D1-D7, A5-A3, protecting against mate… and mating. (black wins)
> White defends B2… Full line:

D5-C3, B2-C3, B4-C3, D2-E2, C7-A5, C1-B1, A8-B8+, D4-B3, F8-C5!, E3-C1, C5-A3, F4-D3, A3-C1, D1-C1, D7-C5, E3-C5, A5-C5, E2-E1 (forced), A6-A5, A2-A4, C8-D7, B1-A2, C5-B4, E1-E4, B4-E4, F3-E4, D7-A4
And black is probably not doing well, but it's unclear. This seems like white's best attempt.

That's only one of about 4-5 annoying long lines (in which black does well)

Is this a real Sacrifice O.o ? Looks playable to me, if white takes, anyway 😛 (Edit: Doesn't seem like white can afford to not take it… but i'm tired)

3:30 D5-C3, check it out, it's funky

It appears that after Rh2, Bb7 was a blunder and just the simple Kh7 holds. At the very least there is plenty of play left in the game. It seemed to me a really obvious move and I wondered why Zhou didn't play this.

that rook move was amazing tbh

Excuse me, why at 1:55 after h7-h6 white doesn't play Kc6? threatening the queen and then eating the Pawn on b4? Thanks for the answer

At 4:04 why dont the black move up his pawn forking the two knights

Tal like is correct. Beautiful game! Thank you so much!

Lovely game. How does white respond if 14…Nxf4 15 Bxf4 e5 with the black pawn forking White's minor pieces?

I somehow feel like Rxb2 was winning for black. Can someone explain to me why doesn't it work?

Reply
Ian Teichert

Re5… wow, what a way to end it!

Ramon Martinez

Awesome game! =D

great stuff.. really pushes you to go out of the box. Sometimes traditional chess thinking can really force you into secure moves
