  chancho: Massive hammerblows by Mr. Chaurosek.

  Phony Benoni: Game title has been fixed by the Department of Redundancy Department.

My favorite move of the game is <13.Nxf8+> instead of 13.Nxh8+, keeping Black's king in the crosshairs of the f-file.

Jan-25-12  rilkefan: 10...f6 loses by force. I kept waiting for ...Be7, on move 8 and here, after which Black might be fine. And I imagine 6...Nxc3 before ...Qc5+ would have been wiser.

[Notices 1891.] Oh well, carry on.

Jan-25-12  xthred: A thing of beauty.
Jan-25-12  YoungEd: As soon as I saw 5...♘xe4, I knew Black's goose was cooked! Don't open files against players much better than you!
Jan-25-12  izimbra: What <YoungEd> said. It's an older game but even so it's hard not to critique <5..Nxe4 > and <6.O-O> when <6.Nd5 <some/any black Q move>, 7.Qe2 f5 8.d3> is nearly won for the white side.
Jan-25-12  sevenseaman: Really a carousel of beauties.
Jan-25-12  onthehouse: Exceptional play by white.

Jan-25-12  shakespeare: Thats the reason why I love Kings Gambit - there is nothing like to learn wild attacks if your opponent allows it

A short biography of him on youtube:

Jan-25-12  acme: Why 17. Qe5? Why not the more forcing 17. Qg5+ Kd7 18. Qe7+ Kc6 19. Rf6+ Kb5 20. Qc5+ with mate next?
Jan-25-12  bvwp: Round about move 12, I started thinking "This just isn't fair." Wonderful stuff.

  kevin86: A pair of rooks and a queen against a defenseless king-pretty one-sided.

Aroundandaroundandaround...makes me dizzy.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: <acme> Looks like you're right. 17.Qh4+ is also faster than the quiet 17.Qe5, when 17...Be6 gives Black the chance to hang on by his fingernails before having to sacrifice them and almost everything else to delay mate for half-a-dozen extra moves.

Apparently, Black was not into such Skulteties.

Jan-25-12  LoveThatJoker: CG game of the month!

  Penguincw: Interesting how the POTD (Alekhine vs Sik, 1943) and GOTD both end in white giving check to the black king with a heavy piece on move 19, and has black resigning right away, due to checkmate.
Jan-25-12  TVCHESS3JAQUES: Fox Lady (la dama del zorro!) "Z" go Dame of chesboard
Feb-25-12  BlackSheep: I think we can conclude that Skultetys' first blunder was sitting down to play .

I gotta go to the ATM machine for some bread....damn I forgot my PIN number! Some folks got all the luck!
