Mar-29-05  percyblakeney: It's doubtful if any player have lost a game quicker in a high class tournament and still won it. Maroczy finished Ostend 1905 1.5 points ahead of Tarrasch and Janowski, but this is what happened against Marco...

  whiteshark: <9...g5??> is a move you regret.
Oct-03-09  Sem: Even I can see that Black is strategically lost, but what if he simply plays Kd7 and tries to escape via ct? White is still a piece down.

<Sem>,
Here is some analysis after 13...♔d7:
14.♕f7+ ♗e7 15.ef6 ♔c7 16.fe7 ♕d7 17.♕g7 ♕e8 18.f6 ♘e5 19.♕g5 ♘f7

The White pawns on e7 & f6 totally dominate the Black position.

Nov-29-11  Mimchi1: Holy crap! I'm amazed Maroczy played 9...g5 in 1905! This type of move is a very computer-like line that Rybka would recommend nowadays, such as Nakamura played against Carlsen's French Defense. These players, although lacking contemporary chess knowledge, are still a force to be reckoned with.
Nov-29-11  dumbgai: <This type of move is a very computer-like line that Rybka would recommend nowadays, such as Nakamura played against Carlsen's French Defense.>

If by "this type of move" you mean a losing one, no I don't think Rybka would recommend it.

Sep-15-12  shakman: ♘e6!
