Awesome game. The last four moves is incredible.
I have a question (I believe it is a idiom question , possible I know what it means in the board) about what “quiet movie” means, please? Can you give me/us some example? Thank you!
Sure, a “quiet move”, would be one where it is not making an obvious threat, or doing something like making a capture, or giving a check, but still has a purpose.
In a game like this where there are fireworks on almost every single move, captures, checks, promotions, smothered mates, etc, moving the queen just one square, when it is such a powerful piece, is an example of a “quiet move”.
Hope this helps!
Gotcha it! Thank you once again for your Tactics newsletter and you are always prompt to help.
BTW, one of my favorite Chess movies of all time – The Luzhin Defense, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0211492/ has a great line, where the main character is talking about his game, and he has a very dramatic pause, then says
“I played a *QUIET* move!!”
and is very excited about it
It is the kind of think only a chess player would find funny, but it is probably my favorite line and scene in the whole movie.
Of course I’ll get it!
The only quiet move in this game was e4
