"Kasparov told me later that my move was a 'famous mistake', and that 9...Qb6! is best and gives equal chances."
- GM Patrick Wolff
|Mar-18-12|| ||AlanPardew: Garry's famous for his graciousness in defeat. He reached the same position (after 9...0-0), the same year, but at least this time, he didn't lose:|

|Aug-11-12|| ||Cemoblanca: Aaaauuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!!! :D Nice game Wolffy! ;0)|

|Feb-18-13|| ||FSR: Hungry Like the Wolff.|
|Jul-23-13|| ||Albanius: Why doesn't this game have a title like Big Bad Wolff or Wolff at the Door?|
|Sep-26-13|| ||Neptun11: So where wère Garry`s decisive mistakes? Only 14. h4?|
|Mar-06-14|| ||JohnBoy: The above video links (Feb-18-10 & Feb-22-10) are all dead.|
|Sep-13-15|| ||Albanius: 23 Qe4!? Bh4?
24 Qg4+ Bg5
25 Rf8+ Kf8
26 Qc8+ Kg7
27 Qc3+ and wins
23 ... Qe1+!
24 Qe1 fe1/Q+
25 Ke1 Bh4+
26 Ke2 Rc8 and Black wins.
|Sep-07-16|| ||RookFile: The position after 6....cxd5 was brave play because Wolff cheerfully accepted the isolated d pawn. Maybe it was because he knew he could kick the queen with tempo.|
|Sep-07-16|| ||catlover: According to the post by <hstevens129>, GM Wolff quit chess and opted for "the financial industry." I guess that makes him the Wolff of Wall Street.|
|Sep-07-16|| ||catlover: <Rookfile> Good point. The way the game went, Wolff lost the isolated pawn but got an attack. |
I wonder if 16. Nf3 would have been better than 16. Rc1. The Knight's absence on f3 seems to cause problems for Kasparov later.
|Sep-07-16|| ||kevin86: Since a wolf is wild dog, Kasparov was really hounded by this Wolff.|
|Sep-07-16|| ||Keyser Soze: The documentary about this simul event is great. A must watch. Garry taking the US junior top players.|
|Sep-07-16|| ||swclark25: I didn't understand 23 Nf6. Black Q threatens with 22...Qd2, but White is up a N. Seems White playing 23)f4 would protect the N with the B, and would allow for 24)Qc2 to threaten Black Q. Thoughts?|
|Sep-07-16|| ||catlover: <swclark25> I'm not sure why Kasparov played 23. Nf6 either. Maybe he was hoping for 23... Bxf6 24. Qg4+ Bg5 25. Rxf8+ Kxf8 26. Qc8+ Bd8 27. Qc5+ Kg8 28. Qxf2. If so, Wolff sidestepped that trap. |
In the position you mention, black is threatening mate on the move (23...Qe1++). Unfortunately, 23. f4 would not have avoided that.
|Sep-07-16|| ||morfishine: And another great game gets a load of play-on-word manure dumped on it|
|Sep-07-16|| ||eternaloptimist: Patrick's attack was direct & got the job done! I'm sure he was excited to beat the reigning World Chess Champ so quickly in a simul! He wasn't afraid to take some chances vs Kasparov. It would've been easy to play more solidly w/ 1...♙c5 but he got aggressive w/ 1...♙e5. I had the privilege of meeting Patrick at a chess tournament in New Orleans back in '92 when he was the reigning US Chess Champ. I talked w/ him for 15 minutes or so. He played ~20 games in a simul the day before the tournament; he won all of the games but 1. He got a draw in that game.|
|Sep-07-16|| ||JimNorCal: Back when Morf wasn't so picky. Those were the days...|
Premium Chessgames Member morfishine: No way White Mieses this tactic
"Mieses this tactic" ("misses" this tactic, get it?)
|Sep-07-16|| ||eternaloptimist: <Jim> 😃 Lol that's funny! He's definitely a very picky fellow b/c he wants a great game & a great pun for every GOTD. He's 1 of the most interesting & funny kibitzers that we have on CG!|
|Sep-07-16|| ||eternaloptimist: <Keyser Soze> Thanks for telling me about that documentary; I wasn't aware of it until you mentioned it! It's called "American Gambit". I did a search on YouTube for it & it's in 3 parts. Here's the link.: https://m.youtube.com/playlist?list...|
|Sep-08-16|| ||posoo: GOODNES GRASHOS MORFUDLIAN

|Jan-05-18|| ||MissScarlett: Shelby Lyman's syndicated column of March 20th 1988 (e.g., the <Courier-Post> (Cherry Hill, N.J.), p.6D) has a different move-order (in descriptive notation), viz.:|
<6. Nf3 Be7
7. cxd5 cxd5
8. O-O Nc6
9. Qa4 O-O>
