Sep-12-03  ksadler: A beautiful example of how the Muzio Gambit is supposed to work.
Jun-03-05  shakespeare918: Chesswarrior, or some people just call it ECO this gambit is actually called the Quad gambit.
Jun-03-05  SnoopDogg: Believe it or not I actually think 5. gxf3? is an loss with black with perfect play from white.
Jun-03-05  shakespeare918: I belive it!It is a very strong attack and alot of the strongest players cant handle it if they are played from a person like morphy!
Jul-25-07  Bob726: Forget it, If black plays well after gxf3 he wins easily. Have the greatest attacking player ever vs any comptuer today and they will lose every time.

  heuristic: PM plays Qh5 in a muzio again! This time, NN responded appropriately.

even with suboptimum moves, (15...d5 & 16...Qd4); NN defends against Wht's attack nicely.

But defense requires consistent accuracy; 20...Rf8 gives up BLK's material advantage and 24...Ne5 puts BLK in a dangerous position.

PM misses 25.Qxa7, but NN hands the game over with 25...Ng4 and 27...Ne5.

Dec-21-09  birthtimes: PM did not miss 25.Qxa7. He chose a stronger plan...
Dec-24-10  josejoasm: Why resigns NN at this point? He has material disadvantage but I don't see any imminent threat.
Apr-30-13  sicilianhugefun: Great pin! White can simply march the H-pawn forward or take advantage of the pin by playing Re3 followed by c3 and d4 pocketing the helpless knight on d4
