Default An intriguing, unusual game


Below is an interesting game I just finished playing over. It's
several decades old. Although it involved prominent masters, and was
published in a national magazine, it is not on any database I know of.
It intrigued me because of the unusual conditions under which it was
played.

1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. Nc3 Bg7 4. e4 d6 5. g3 O-O 6. Bg2 e5 7. Nge2 Bg4
8. f3 Be6 9. b3 c6 10. O-O Qc7 11. d5 Bd7 12. Be3 c5 13. Qd2 a6 14. a4
b6 15. h3 Ra7 16. Bh6 Re8 17. g4 Bc8 18. Ng3 Nbd7 19. Kh2 Nf8 20. Rg1
Qe7 21. Bf1 N8d7 22. Bxg7 Kxg7 23. Bd3 Ng8 24. Rg2 Kh8 25. Qe3 Nf8 26.
a5 bxa5 27. Rga2 Qb7 28. Rxa5 Qxb3 29. Nb5 axb5 30. Rxa7 bxc4 31. R7a3
Qb2+ 32. Qe2 c3 33. Qxb2 cxb2 34. Rb1 Bd7 35. Rxb2 Rc8 36. Rb6 c4 37.
Bc2 Kg7 38. Rxd6 c3 39. Ne2 f5 40. gxf5 gxf5 41. exf5 Nf6 42. Rxc3 Ra8
43. Ng3 Ra2 44. Kg1 Bb5 45. Rc7+ N8d7 46. Ne4 Nxe4 47. Bxe4 1-0

Anyone here care to:

1. Guess who the players were?
2. What were the unusual conditions?
3. What opportunity did White miss to win the game earlier than he
did?

Feel free to use any online searches or analytical engines.

That was a lousy game TK. Really chock full of mistakes.


* Anyone here care to:

Why? It could be anybody. BigDatabase in CB did not have it.

* 2. What were the unusual conditions?


Duress? Time constraints? A 1 minute game maybe?

* 3. What opportunity did White miss to win the game earlier than he
did?


Where do we start? Taking the fianchetto bishop and attacking K-side
is one idea for white, but as for a clear win I don't really see one.
White played OK, given black was dropping pawns.

Check out my Teske-Szilagyi game for a more instructive example of
advanced pawn promotion.

This is Fine-Helms, New York 1945 which was played blindfold. I'll let
someone
else publish engine analysis.

Excellent, Mark. Not only blindfold (at least on Fine's part) but at
10 seconds per move.

Oh right, I didn't realise that Helms wasn't blindfolded. I did know
that it was
a rapid game, but presumed that that might have meant 30 0 or some
such...

0 10 makes it look all-the-more-impressive, in terms of Fine's conduct
of the
game.

Notice the clown Mark Houlsby did not want to expose his ignorance by
suggesting, as per your OP, how to win the game quicker. Clever
patzer, MH is.

Several times. Stan Booz has called me a ****wit. Several times, I
have
not been in a position to contradict his assertion.

Why not demonstrate how much smarter *you* are, and give the quicker
win?

Actually, its percentage of mistakes was surprisingly low,
considering that White was playing blindfold and both players were
allowed only 10 seconds per move. Certainly much lower than the games
Ray Lopez has been touting here as "mistake-free."

* 3. What opportunity did White miss to win the game earlier than he
did?


Where do we start? *Taking the fianchetto bishop and attacking K-side
is one idea for white, but as for a clear win I don't really see one.


White's chance came at move 22, in this position:

2b1r1k1/r2nqpbp/pp1p1npB/2pPp3/P1P1P1P1/1PN2PNP/3Q3K/R4BR1 w - - 0 22

Fine played 22.Bxg7, but could have decided matters with 22. Nf5!
gxf5 23. Qg5 Nxg4+ (if 23...Qf8 simply 24.gxf5+) 24. Rxg4 Qxg5 25.
Rxg5 f4 26. Rxg7+. What I find most interesting is not that Fine
missed this during the game (under the circumstances that was quite
understandable), but that he also missed it later when annotating the
game for his Chess Review column.
He clearly was thinking about an Ng3-f5 shot. Just the move before,
after 21.Bf1, he commented "There is plenty of time for Kt-B5." But
for 22.Bxg7, all he says is "Otherwise ...Q-B1 forces the exchange
under less favorable circumstances." And ironically, after move 24 he
wrote "The threat of Kt-B5ch will become real some day," not seeing
that it already had.

I'm too short-sighted to be able to tell. In any event, I have *been*
****witted several times.

Now, for example....
