    at 6:20 can't you also just capture the bishop on f8, if black recaptures you get a royal fork on d6 and if black doesnt recapture, white's up a bishop, or am I missing something. Would appreciate if somebody could confirm.

  9. Shaked Bukai

    Agadmator: To find such a move, you would need to be rated at least 3000. Me: I wonder what sort of engine sorcery is in the works. All I see is Kf1, and even that is purely to sidestep the threats, including guarding e2 since the pawn making it there would be devastating. I bet it's something crazy like Nxg6 which is a bit unclear. Rxh6 is just too much of a threat. Agadmator: The move is Kf1. Me: Oh. I guess seeing why everything else doesn't work or is unclear due to a very clear threat is what it takes to be 3000 rated these days.

The game is famous for an incident on move 38 when Matulović played a losing move but then took it back after saying "j'adoube" and played a different move. This earned him the nickname "Jadoubović".
