A great game!

    I wanted to see some peoples opinion on this game. My father actually decided to name me after a grandmaster "Alexander Alekhine" so I'm starting a collection of some of his games and this one was just beautiful.

    [White "Giese,A"]

    [Black "Alekhine,Alexander"]

     

    I was analyzing through this game, which took about an hour total, to see the reasoning behind these

    grandmasters moves and I was pleasantly surprised and I hope that some other people who read this can learn from this game like I did.

     

    I'll probably be posting a few more games, and possibly a few of my games as puzzles and see if you guys have what it takes. Smile

     

    (I'm sorry if there are any spelling errors, it's rather late and this is the first time I've posted something)

    When playing the King's Gambit, white's third move MUST be Nf3 in order to prevent the queen check on h4. White unwisely left his king exposed from early on in this game and paid the penalty for it.

     I agree, and this was a GM game too. I was rather surprised that he did such a move, but I'd really have to dtusy in order to see the reasoningfor the bishop instead of knight moving.

    I hate kings gambit so I never play it as black. Once and a while I though come across a kings gambit from the black side and I almost always manages to screw it up with a blunder and I almost always loose because of this. I like to see that black wins as I usually play black in it.

    White did not lose because of that and bishop c4 instead of nf3 is playable and has even been played by strong grandmasters like Ivunchuck and Kamsky.  Anybody know why white did play queen takes bishop on move 19? I must not be seeing something.

    Hope this works  I do not know how to post animated games  can someone explain how to do that? thanks  

     

    Anyway here is a fairly young fischer playing a simul in the kings gambit with a nice queen sac. Another fun game to click through.

    and here is one with Shirov  not quite as 'easy' as the fishcer one as he went against another strong grandmaster but still quite interesting.
