  Phony Benoni: You know, maybe it's just me. But would you say that this game is double-edged?
Feb-25-12  PKNJ: I vote for this as the craziest game of all time. Not the best, or most significant, or most complicated, but the craziest ... I count 10 times that one side or the other just chucks away material. What do you all think?

  offramp: In the KGA white initially gives up a pawn so as to quickly surrender the initiative. In order to regain the initiative he normally has to give up a piece. This is generally a knight, given up either on f7 or f3. But that does not mean that black has to stop attacking....

Hugo Faehndrich, Rudolf Charousek, Alexander Halprin & Georg Marco all knew how to play these wide-open games: keep developing even at the cost of the kitchen sink, and have fun.
