Has to be a mistake

Post by Dann Corbit » Wed Jan 23, 2019 8:35 pm

In this game I got from TWIC:



It's listed as a draw.

First of all, 13.Rb1 makes no sense (the obvious Nxc7+ wins easily).
And this is not a draw.
Does someone have the correct game score?
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

8...Nh5 is a bit difficult to fathom as well. :wink:

Probably the origination of the saying "A knight on the rim is dim."
Especially when it coughs up a queen. :roll:

This game found its way into an opening book.

I guess that they filtered for "both players gm and ending in a draw"

Chess 365 has it quite differently:
