  tpstar: Interesting idea to turn the Fork Trick into a Boden-Kieseritsky Gambit where the key move for Black is 6 ... f6 preventing badness against f7. But I don't see much compensation for the Pawn, and Black can eventually consolidate. On FICS I have now faced this line against the same opponent 3 times - all 0-1.

waltx-tpstar (FICS 9/24/06) [Fritz 7]: 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Nf6 4. Nc3 Nxe4 5. 0-0 Nxc3 6. dxc3 f6 [last book move] 7. Re1 d6 8. Qd5 Qe7 9. b4 [9. Bb5 Bd7] a6 10. Be3 Bd7 (10 ... Nd8 first and then 11 ... Be6 saves a tempo) 11. Bb3 Nd8 12. Qd1 Be6 13. c4 [13. a3 a5 ] Nf7 [13 ... Qf7 14. Qd3 ] 14. Ba4+ c6 15. c5 [15. Bb3 d5 16. cd cd 17. Bxd5 Bxd5 18. Qxd5 Rd8 ] (I see no reason to return the Pawn here) d5 16. c3 Qd7 17. Bc2 Be7 18. Qb1 e4 19. Nd4 Ne5 20. Nxe6 Qxe6 and Black won (0-1).

Sep-28-06  Poulsen:, I am quiet sure, that this game should be attributed to Julius Nielsen, who b.t.w. many years later took part in the 5th WCCh (won by Hans Berliner).

So, no wonder, that Paul Keres had problems in this game ...
