Kibitzer's Corner
May-18-04  Theoryhack: White does very well after 3... Bc5?!4 Qg4. 4...g6 and 4...Kf8 are the only serious tries after that. Qf6 is just a losing error.
Feb-13-06  popski: Mate follow here, starting with 13. ♘xf7...
May-01-06  McCool: Black resigns because of 13. ♘e6+! ♘xe6 (13 ... ♗xe6 or 13 ... fxe6 then 14. ♕e7+ and 15. ♕e8#) 14. ♕e7+ ♔g8 15. ♕e8+ ♘f8 16. ♘e7# But resigning on his opponents turn seems odd.
Dec-26-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: 5...Qxf2+ isn't such a great move against Alekhine, obviously.
Jan-21-07  likestofork: <McCool> 13....fxe6 would sort of expose the K to the R. But, yeah, what you said, otherwise.
Jul-10-11  avidfan: Good candidate for an easy puzzle.
May-03-12  e4 resigns: I don't see the mate.
May-04-12  Shams: <e4 resigns> No mate but 12...hxg5 13.Qxh8 is forced and Black's position is in ruins.

  GrahamClayton: <McCool>But resigning on his opponents turn seems odd.

Apparently Alekhine announced the mate in 4, so there was no need to play any further moves.

  whiteshark: <Rounak Pathak> According to FIDE there is no <GM> with your name:
Jul-30-14  JimNorCal: <whiteshark>: no GM with your name

Doubtless it's an anagram. Or perhaps a palindrome. (Joking!) :) What I want to know is--what comment by <once> caused this outburst? I don't see a comment by <once> in this thread.

  whiteshark: <JimNorCal: <whiteshark>: no GM with your name> hehe ;)

from chessgames posting guidelines:

<"Usernames cannot contain the prefix "GM", "IM", "FM", "WGM", or any other chess title, unless that title has actually been earned. In ambiguous cases where the letters exist apparently by accident (e.g. "IMemorizeOpenings") we may be forgiving; the final determination is the ability of the name to confuse the average member.">
