Analysis of Round 4, Board 1: AdmiralA vs. Hasimir

What can I say? Well, as I've said elsewhere, this is my favourite game that I've lost. I've got three things here, the usual engine analysis and another of my own attempts at annotating the game. In the case of the latter, if I print the whole thing to PDF it goes for 20 pages. Still, with 95 moves and a bunch of diagram tags shoved in, that's not a big surprise. As a consequence I've also got one with no diagram tags at all, just the commentary, but since what I post here needs a good chess database viewer to use anyway, the no diagram version will be left for the final PGN file for download.

Running my usual analysis options for my own games of an average of five minutes per move per player on a 95 move game takes a very long time. Close to around sixteen hours for each engine in fact. Between that and a degree of exhaustion, there has been a delay in the analysis of other games this round. They are, however, being done and will be posted here when complete. When it is all done there will be plain PGN files for people to download and I can make PDFs of any of these upon request.

Anyway, here's my annotations for the game:

1.d4 { I'm not the biggest fan of 1.d4 and AdmiralA and I have discussed my fondness for the Sicilian in the past, so this didn't really come as a surprise. Good thing I'd read up on the openings a little more. } 1...Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 { Indian Game, Anti-Nimzo-indian } 3...d5 { E10: Queen's Pawn Game [diagram] } 4.g3 { This was the first sign that the game wasn't going anywhere expected as expectations said 4.Nc3 was the way to go. Had Nc3 been played it seems less likely that we'd have switched to the Catalan (E04) from the Queen's Pawn (E10). Instead the Queen's Pawn would have shifted into a Queen's Gambit Declined (D43) and ultimately followed the Semi-Slav, Modern main line (D46). } ( 4.Nc3 c6 { [diagram] D43: Queen's Gambit Declined (QGD), Semi-Slav } 5.e3 { D45: QGD, Semi-Slav (5.e3) } 5...Nbd7 { D45: QGD, Semi-Slav (5...

His position is not entirely untenable, but it could have been a lot better. Deep HIARCS concurred with the view that Nc3 was the superior move, but then so do the opening books, including the GM, GM+, tournament and human reference opening books. } ( 7.Nc3 { [diagram] AdmiralA sees this as being the optimum move here and the tournament opening book in HIARCS Chess Explorer agrees with that. } 7...Nd5 { Following the strongest line in that opening book results in this sequence. } 8.O-O O-O 9.Qc2 b5 10.Be4 Bb7 11.Nxd5 Bxd5 12.Bxh7+ Kh8 13.Be4 Bd6 14.b3 Bxe5 15.dxe5 Nc6 16.Bb2 Nb4 17.Qc3 Bxe4 18.Qxb4 Bd5 19.Rfe1 cxb3 20.axb3 c5 21.Qxc5 Bxb3 22.Ba3 Re8 23.Qc3 Qd5 24.e4 Qc4 25.Qxc4 bxc4 26.Rec1 a5 { [diagram] There are a couple of fairly equal paths here, but neither go more than two ply further. } 27.h4 Red8 { The other one was 27.Kf1 Red8 } ) 7...Qxd4 8.Qa4+ b5 { [diagram] This was my single biggest error, I believe, my turn to curse the opening as AdmiralA had. A classic case of impetuously leaping to an obvious move instead of stepping back and considering my options. I suspect the most appropriate solution would have been Nbd7. I'd still lose the Bishop on the next turn, but I would have maintained a more solid line of defense earlier in the game. } ( 8...Nbd7 9.Nxd7 Bxd7 10.Qxb4 Nd5 { [diagram] This would have been a far more preferable and more likely scenario and most likely followed by either the White Queen running or 11.Bxd5 exd5 } ) 9.Qxb4 Nd5 10.Nef3 Qb6 11.Qa3 c5 12.O-O O-O 13.e4 Nb4 14.Qc3 Rd8 15.a3 Nd3 { [diagram] This is the lead up to another couple of points of contention. } 16.b3 { Here I might have been better served by taking the fight to the b file since my Knight was protected by a Rook. } 16...Nc6 ( 16...cxb3 17.Nxb3 c4 18.Nbd2 Nc6 ) 17.bxc4 e5 18.Qc2 Bg4 19.Nb3 { [diagram] Due to questions raised regarding taking the Bishop on c1, here's the two moves considered, but with much longer lines worked out than I had at the time. Which one is actually better, I have no idea. } ( 19.Nb3 Nxc1 20.Rfxc1 b4 21.axb4 cxb4 { [diagram] } 22.c5 Qc7 23.Rd1 a5 24.Rxd8+ Qxd8 { [diagram] } 25.Nbd2 Qe7 26.Qc4 Rd8 27.Qb5 Qe6 28.Qb6 Rb8 29.Qa6 Bxf3 30.Bxf3 { [diagram] } ) ( 19.Nb3 Nxc1 20.Rfxc1 b4 21.axb4 Nxb4 { [diagram] } 22.Qe2 Rd3 23.Rcb1 Rad8 24.h3 Bxf3 25.Bxf3 { [diagram] } 25...Rc3 26.Bg4 Qc7 27.Bf5 Rdd3 28.Qh5 h6 29.Na5 { [diagram] } ) ( 19.Nb3 bxc4 { [diagram] } 20.Nbd2 Na5 21.Qc3 Qc7 22.Rb1 Nb3 { [diagram] } 23.Nxc4 Nbxc1 24.Rfxc1 Nxc1 25.Rxc1 { [diagram] } 25...f6 26.Ne3 Be6 27.Qxc5 { [diagram] } 27...Qd7 28.Nd5 Rab8 29.Qc7 Bxd5 { [diagram] } ) 19...Nxc1 { And now for what really happened ... "Who will rid me of this meddlesome priest" Indeed.

Arguably it's from this point that I'm just fighting to stay in the game. The fact that I managed to continue from here for more than 60 more moves is either a sign of talent and skill, stubborn beligerance or just plain insanity. Perhaps a mixture ... } 28...Qxb1+ { [diagram] Another little reminder to AdmiralA that he is still mortal. } 29.Ne1 Rab8 30.Rc1 Qb2 31.Rd1 Rc7 32.Rad3 Be6 33.Bf1 h6 34.Rd6 Bg4 35.f3 Bh5 { [diagram] I believe that it was about here that we started getting a little silly ... though we confined it to the chat window. } 36.R1d2 { "back from whence you came, wench!" --my rook (AdmiralA) } 36...Qa1 { "I will not fuck off to a nunnery." - my queen (Hasimir) } 37.Nc2 Qb1 38.Na3 Rb3 39.R6d3 { [diagram] And finally, time for another exchange. } 39...Rxd3 40.Qxd3 Qb4 41.Qd8+ Kh7 { [diagram] Here's another of those weird things in the next move. } 42.Nc2 { At first it may not seem obvious why this move was made instead of Qxc7 and the answer is simply this: } ( 42.Qxc7 Qxd2 43.Qxc5 Bxf3 44.Qf2 Qd1 45.Qe3 Bg4 46.Kf2 Qa1 47.Nb5 Qa2+ 48.Kg1 Qb1 49.Qd3 Qb4 50.h3 Be6 51.g4 Qc5+ 52.Kg2 Qc6 53.Be2 Kg8 54.Qc2 Bf7 55.Bd3 Qa8 56.Nd6 a3 57.Qa2 Qa5 58.Nxf7 Kxf7 59.c5+ Ke7 60.c6 Kd6 61.Kf1 Kxc6 62.Qe6+ Kc7 63.Qe7+ Kc6 64.Bc4 Qc3 65.Bd5+ Kb5 66.Qb7+ Ka5 67.Qa7+ Kb5 68.Kg2 Qc2+ 69.Kh1 Qc1+ 70.Kh2 Qd2+ 71.Kg3 Qf4+ 72.Kg2 Qd2+ 73.Kf3 Qd1+ 74.Kf2 Qd2+ 75.Kg3 Qe1+ 76.Kg2 Qd2+ 77.Kf1 Qd1+ 78.Kf2 Qd2+ 79.Kf1 Qd3+ 80.Ke1 Qc3+ 81.Ke2 Qc2+ 82.Ke1 Qc3+ 83.Kd1 Qd3+ 84.Ke1 Qc3+ 85.Kd1 Qf3+ 86.Ke1 Qc3+ 87.Ke2 Qb2+ 88.Ke1 Qc1+ 89.Kf2 Qd2+ 90.Kf3 Qd1+ 91.Kg2 Qe2+ 92.Kg3 Qe1+ 93.Kg2 Qe2+ 94.Kg1 Qe1+ 95.Kh2 Qe2+ 96.Kg1 Qe1+ 97.Kg2 Qd2+ 98.Kh1 Qc1+ 99.Kg2 Qd2+ 100.Kh1 Qc1+ { [diagram] And so it goes, possibly indefinitely. Certainly a better outcome for me, but as it depended entirely on AdmiralA taking the Rook on c7, there's nothing I could do to force the issue. } ) 42...Qa5 43.Bh3 Qc3 { [diagram] Once again it is the clamour of engines telling me this was a bad idea. Apparently exchanging Bishops and Queens was a better idea, followed by killing off pawns. Who knows, perhaps it might have been as there would have been more of a chance for a draw. } 44.Rf2 Ra7 45.Bf5+ Bg6 46.Be6 Bf7 47.Qb6 Re7 48.Bd5 { [diagram] The Bishop exchange was still obtained, though. } 48...Bxd5 49.cxd5 Rf7 50.Qa6 Qb3 51.Qe6 { Now it is clear that White wants to escort that pawn down to get a second Queen and I would not be long for this game if that happened. Something had to be done. } 51...Rf8 52.Qe7 Rb8 53.Qxc5 Rb5 54.Qe7 Qb1+ 55.Kg2 Rb2 56.Qc5 Qc1 57.Qc8 Rb1 58.Kh3 Qg1 { Why wait around to be stalked by his Queen when I can just take a shot at his throat. } 59.Rg2 { Well, I suppose that's one reason, but this isn't over. } 59...Qa7 60.d6 Rb8 61.Qf5+ Kg8 62.d7 { [diagram] Now I'm in serious trouble. A fact which both Deep HIARCS and Stockfish recognise with their lack of alternative analysis from move 63 onward. They identified move 62 as apparently being the absolute point of no return for me. } 62...Rd8 63.Qe6+ Kf8 64.Qd6+ Kf7 65.Rd2 Qg1 { [diagram] But there's still the opportunity to harry his King! } 66.Qd5+ Kg6 67.Qe6 Qf1+ 68.Kh4 Kh7 69.Qe8 { [diagram] That Rook is toast, it is simply a question of whether I want to deal with one Queen or two. The answer seemed pretty obvious at the time, but with the benefit of hindsight there was a much better solution. } 69...Rxe8 ( 69...Qxf3 70.Qxd8 Qxe4+ 71.g4 { If this point had been reached then the rest of this line was inevitable, culminating in something I would have thought truly impossible. As hindsight is 20/20 for both of us we'll probably never know. } 71...g5+ 72.Kg3 Qf4+ 73.Kg2 Qxd2+ 74.Kf1 Qc1+ 75.Ke2 Qxc2+ 76.Ke3 Qc1+ 77.Ke4 Qb1+ 78.Kd5 Qd1+ 79.Kc6 Qc2+ 80.Kb6 Qb2+ 81.Ka6 Qa3 82.Qc7 Qd3+ 83.Qc4 Qxc4+ 84.Kb7 Qd4 85.d8=Q { Even when he finally promotes a new Queen, it still does him no good. } 85...Qxd8 86.Kc6 Qc8+ 87.Kd5 Qd8+ 88.Kc5 Qd4+ 89.Kb5 a3 90.Kc6 Qd8 91.Kc5 a2 92.Kb5 a1=Q 93.Kc5 Qad4+ 94.Kb5 Q8b6# { [diagram] About as long as the game we played, but very different indeed. What I find most interesting with this possibility is that neither Deep HIARCS nor Stockfish saw it at all. Both engines have effectively written off everything between about move 60 and the end of the game. } ) 70.dxe8=Q { Now we are well and truly in the end game. A Queen vs. a Queen, a Rook and a Knight? It should be over in just a few moves, that's what any sensible person would think. } 70...Qxf3 71.Qd7 Kg6 72.Qg4+ Qxg4+ 73.Kxg4 h5+ { [diagram] Perhaps I forgot to mention that I was taught to play by one of the most twisted, manipulative sons of bitches ever to walk this Earth. Chess in my youth was often an exercise in working out how to make that sneaky bastard bleed for every square. As mentioned in the chat during this game, if I have any kind of specialty in chess it's fighting from seemingly impossible positions. I may not always win, but I will make my opponents feel it. } 74.Kf3 Kh6 75.Ne3 Kh7 76.Ra2 a3 77.Rxa3 g5 78.Ra7+ { [diagram] Only a matter of time here. } 78...Kh8 79.Nf5 Kg8 80.g4 h4 81.Ne7+ Kf7 { [diagram] A testament to the level of exhaustion AdmiralA had reached: forgetting that moving his Knight down to e7 allowed my King to venture further forward. } 82.Nc8+ Kf8 83.Nd6 h3 84.Nf7 Ke8 85.Ke3 Kf8 86.Kd3 Ke8 87.Kc4 Kf8 88.Kd5 f5 89.exf5 Kg8 90.f6 { [diagram] Oh dear, AdmiralA forgot again. } 90...Kh7 { But there really isn't anywhere worth going. } 91.Nxg5+ { [diagram] As I said at the time: "wow, double and revealed" } 91...Kg6 92.f7 Kxg5 93.f8=Q { I believe that was his third Queen. } 93...Kxg4 { Yes, I knew what was coming, hence killing what I could. Make them bleed for every square. } 94.Rg7+ { [diagram] At this point I told AdmiralA, "Let's make a captcha." In relation to both an earlier discussion and, obviously, the lichess.org captchas. Then I made my final move: } 94...Kh5 { No Shame Mate for me, I ain't going out like a little bitch. } 95.Qh8# { Black is checkmated } 1-0
