Aug-13-03  ksadler: This game is an exact copy of R Oomen vs Van Vugt, W, 1989 except this game has annotations embedded within it and the linked game does not.
Apr-22-05  aw1988: I went to the Opening Explorer, entered 1. e4 e5 2. f4, and picked the top choice each time. I ended up here. It indeed looks like the KG is busted! :P
Aug-02-05  sneaky pete: Actually black resigned already after 13... dxe5, the moves 14.Bxc6 Qxg4+ 15.Kh1 bxc6 16.Nxe5 Rxe5 being part of Van Vugt's analyses. Even more attractive is his other variation 14.Nxe5 Qg4+! 15.Kh1 Nxe5 16.fxe5 Ne4 17.Re2 Rxe5 18.dxe5 Rd1 .
Sep-27-06  trumbull0042: Funny how a lot of the King's Gambit Accepted games I'm encountering are correspondence games.
Sep-27-06  trumbull0042: 4...g5 looks like a mistake. That allows White to play 5. Ne5. I don't know why he didn't play it. The purpose of 4...Bg7 in the main line is to defend against this threat. (I think).
