|Jul-22-09|| ||Chess Addict: 12...Bh3 is definitely winning for black, am I right?|

Did you consider 13. Bh5 for White in reply?
|Jul-22-09|| ||der623: To Chess Addict: 12...Bh3 forces White to part with the Exchange to avoid mate (g3), but White could hold out for a long time, at least longer than in the game. |
Black is up a pawn, has control of the center, and pressed his advantage by simply developing. Consequently, White's position collapsed under the weight of his earlier mistakes.
|Jul-22-09|| ||newzild: Correct me if I'm wrong, but I recall reading somewhere that 7.Nc3 is an interesting piece sac. White has good practical results.|

|Jul-22-09|| ||bjessee: <the whole point of 12...Bh3 is that mate threat, so attacking queen doesnt achieve anything.>|
except that Bh5 pins the queen to the black king.
|Jul-22-09|| ||Confuse: Looks like someone deleted an embarassing comment ; )|
|Jul-22-09|| ||mike1: Well... White did not have a clue
about the opening and lost....
Nothing else to say, except that the
bishop sacrifice 7.Nc3 is very good for White-see opening explorer.

|Jul-22-09|| ||whiteshark: wow, so many similar games in this for white poor line. <5.Bxc6> is the right choice.|
|Jul-22-09|| ||kevin86: Too bad,I was expecting a bigger game from the rooks-which are compared to elephants-especially if we look at the game as Hannibal would.|
He probably would have his opponent over for dinner with fava beans and a nice chianti--oops,wrong Hannibal..lol
|Jul-22-09|| ||drpoundsign: That's a smart Elephant@|
|Jul-22-09|| ||estrick: <whiteshark: <5.Bxc6> is the right choice>|
In the CG data base White wins 28%, Black wins 44% and 28% are drawn in the games where 5.Bxc6 is played. (Only 18 example games)
|Jul-22-09|| ||lzromeu: The correct line is 4.exf5 likes king gambit acepted. Then can continue with queen pinning the black pawn, knight atack, and pawn atack in g4. The castling needs to be on other side.|
|Jul-22-09|| ||SirChrislov: Babar the Elephant -vs- "Batman":
F Babar vs M Basman, 1993
|Jul-22-09|| ||smalldreams: this would be funny if Babar actually played an elephant gambit (2...d5) but he doesn't.|
|Jul-22-09|| ||SirChrislov: <smalldreams>
I read your profile, and only a player of your strengh would play such a gambit. no offense kiddo.
|Jul-22-09|| ||smalldreams: LOL. No need to tell me things I already know. I said it would be funny, not that it would be a good game. ;)|
|Sep-24-17|| ||FSR: Isn't White's resignation premature? Am I missing something?|
