Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-20-04  InspiredByMorphy: Great game. Perhaps 17. ...Nd7 would have been better.
Nov-11-04  Bobak Zahmat: Anderssen, who has played the most King's Gambit against Falkbeer, who's name is bounded to the counter gambit. Nice game, just Anderssen is superieur to Falkbeer.
Jun-08-05  arifattar: Was this the first time this was played? The counter-gambit I mean.
Jun-08-05  hintza: Earliest example in the database is Greco vs NN, 1620. Not sure I would take a Greco game too seriously though.
Oct-25-07  gambitfan: Funny!!!

Mr Anderssen plays the Anderssen Attack against Mr Falkbeer who plays the Falkbeer Counter Gambit !
