Watching live the Best Game by the loser!!

By: Charles Kayle

The game I am presenting to you was played in the 4th round of the Bled Olympiad 2002. It was played on the second board of the match Azerbaijan – Hungary.

During a special interview with Mamedyarov in the famous New In Chess magazine, when asked about which is the best played game he saw in the olympiad, his reply was that it was the game he lost(!) to Judit.

Polgar,Judit (2685) – Mamedyarov,Shakhriyar (2580)

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.0–0 Nxe4 6.d4 b5 7.Bb3 d5 8.dxe5 Be6 9.Nbd2 Nc5 10.c3 d4 11.Ng5

Planning to answer the capture of the knight by 12 Qf3 and 13 Bd5. That 11th move was first played in the world championship match 1978 between Karpov and Korchnoi.

11..Bd5 ?

Mamedyarov was trying to avoid the complications that may arise from the played move. But possibly 10..Bg4 instead of 10 ..d4 was a better attempt to reach his goal.

During that day, I had no game to play, and I profited from my break to play the role of a spectator, watching live the undergoing games. The game tables were arranged in parallel way, so that the spectators can watch in a closed distance the first and fourth boards. The top matches were secured with cords, especially the number one match between Russia and Georgia, where Garry Kasparov was playing; his table was surrounded with arbiters and VIPs, working like body guards, preventing the spectators from approaching the table, and even to take a look at the board, in order not to disturb the mood of his majesty. So I walked away to watch other (less protected) match games, and I spotted a lonely one. And you can guess who the players were; Judit was sitting in her usual way on the chair, i.e. crossing her legs, looking in an aggressive way to the face of her opponent. That face was perpetually changing colors from red to yellow, with a feeling like humiliation. May be I was the only spectator watching Judit making her 12th move:

12.Nxf7!! Kxf7 13.Qf3+ Ke6 14.Qg4+ Kf7 15.Qf5+ Ke7 16.e6 Bxe6

[If 16...Nxb3 then 17 Nxb3 then knight joins the attack: 17..Bxe6 18 Re1 Qc8 19 Bg5+ Kd6 20 Bf4+! Ke7 21 Nc5 Nd8 22 Rxe6+! Followed by Re1 and wins]

17.Re1! Qd6 18.Bxe6 Nxe6 19.Ne4 Qe5 20.Bg5+ Kd7

[If 20..Ke8, then 21 Nf6+]

21.Nc5+ Bxc5

[if 21..Qxc5, then Qxe6 mat]

22.Qf7+ Kd6

[if 22..Be7, then Rxe5]

23.Be7+

1–0

[If 23...Nxe7, then 24 Rxe5 Kxe5 25 Re1]

[If 23...Kd5, then 24 Qf3+ Kc4 25 b3 mat]
