|Apr-19-05|| ||aw1988: No luck in this game. |
|Jul-28-05|| ||mymt: This might be a good one to "surprise!" those Scandinavian players with - add it to the arsenal.OH I forgot my luck joke,never mind better luck next time.|
|Feb-05-06|| ||FICSwoodpusher: I think 2. ... Bg4 would be better but there are not any games like that in the opening explorer.|
|Mar-16-07|| ||Whitehat1963: 24...g6 and black was already running out of luck.|
|Aug-11-08|| ||whiteshark: Bad Luck!|
|Dec-13-08|| ||WhiteRook48: Keres doesn't want Luck to have any http://chessgames.com/perl/chesspla...|
|Jan-22-11|| ||jackpawn: <FICS> I wondered about 2 . . Bg4 too. Surprising there isn't a single game with it in the opening explorer. Are we overlooking something obvious?|

As I see it, Black derives no advantage from this after 3.exd5. In this line White, on the other hand, gets off Scot free with his audacious 2.e4. And in fact, if you look at this circumspectly you will see that after A) 3...Qxd5 4.Nc3 Qa5 or B) 3...Nf6 4.Nc3 we have, in both cases, transposed into lines of the Scandinavian Defense, a.k.a. the Center Counter Game, that are unfavorable for Black. That is likely the reason why you don't find 2...Bg4 in Opening Explorer.
|Mar-28-12|| ||YoungEd: Why not just 23. ♘xc7? I must be missing something.|
|Mar-28-12|| ||shivasuri4: <YoungEd>, Qb6+ and Qxc7 follow.|
|Mar-28-12|| ||YoungEd: See, I was right! I WAS missing something! :) Thanks, <shivasuri4>.|
|Mar-28-12|| ||offramp: It goes to show that in Q+R endings the most important thing to have is the move.|
|Mar-28-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Phenomenal game by GM Keres. Here is another brilliant game by him in this Tennison Gambit: Keres vs Faltweber, 1932|
|Mar-28-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: <al wazir: There has to be a more elegant way to win this game. Even 23. Nxc7, winning + for a , would have been neater.>|
23. Nxc7 Qb6+ wins the N.
|Mar-28-12|| ||algete: too easy pun :-(|
|Mar-28-12|| ||whiteshark: <algete> waiting for 3.5 years for the pun is not an easy undertaking. :D|
|Mar-28-12|| ||whiteshark: "<12 d3> led to equal chances in the game P.Keres-Luck,Tartu 1935. However, it was <a training game> so it is difficult to decide if Keres really thought the opening had much merit."|
|Mar-28-12|| ||Penguincw: It took some time for white to win the wrong, but they got it.|
|Mar-28-12|| ||erniecohen: 24. ♘f5 ♖ae8 25. ♕h5+ ♔g8 26. ♖h4 ♖e5 27. ♕xh7+ ♔f7 28. ♖xg7 1-0|
|Mar-28-12|| ||kevin86: Rook gone-luck gone.|
|Mar-28-12|| ||bengalcat47: Too bad Luck's first name isn't Andrew. That Luck figures to strike gold when the Colts draft him #1 in next month's NFL draft.|
