|Sep-10-03|| ||D.A. KALIM: a pair of monkeys playing each other!!! |
|Sep-10-03|| ||TheMightyPawn: <D.A.KALIM> I think its unfair to call Mr.Unknown(black) a monkey .After all he won the game in 11 moves ;-) |
|Sep-10-03|| ||D.A. KALIM: <TheMightyPawn>You're right a chess game is a product of human complexities and struggle.I have reviewed the game and I appologize for my tactless comment.:-> |
|Mar-13-05|| ||Mate Hunter: <Rookpawn> NN stands for the Latin 'Nomen nescio' which means 'I don't know the name'. |
|Jan-11-06|| ||prinsallan: I am starting to think that mr Jonathan Wilson was forced to play this opening at the event in 1795.
Probarbly it was an exhibition and he won many games despite the forced opening.|
In chessgames.com database there are only a few games from 1795 and all I saw played the Kings Gambit.
Anyway, NN plays good here, pressing Wilson back until the point where White cannot hope to even draw anymore.
|Mar-20-06|| ||MorphyMatt: He won NN vs E Fossan, 1991 in only 5!|
|Apr-29-06|| ||SJP: The best White can hope for is, of course, 12. Qf3 gxh1Q 13. Qxh1 Ng4 14. Nd2 Rf8 15. Qg1 Rf2+ 16. Kd3 Qh6.|
|Aug-22-07|| ||Chicago Chess Man: What the heck is with 5 c3? It's too slow for this kind of gambit. 5. 0-0 is the normal move and later, the fact that white never castled causes difficulties.|

Well, besides 5. O-O (the Muzio Gambit) there are four other choices more usually taken than is 5. c3. They are a) The Salvio Gambit (5. Ne5); b) the McDonnell Gambit (5. Nc3); c) the Ghulam Khassim Gambit (5. d4); and d) the Wild Muzio Gambit (5. Bxf7+). Not all are equally good, but all are certainly more in the spirit of this opening than is the move taken in this game.
|Dec-31-08|| ||WhiteRook48: Wilson plays too passively I think.|
|Mar-15-09|| ||WhiteRook48: hooray for NN!|
|Jul-26-09|| ||just a kid: I could give wilson Rook odds and win.|
|Nov-18-09|| ||FSR: Will the real NN please stand up?|
|Nov-03-10|| ||Igor Egin: Mr Wilson broke the main strategical idea of Muzio (or Muziolike) gambit. White should develop quickly.
Maybe people couldn't play this gambit correct in 18th century.|
|Jul-31-11|| ||DrMAL: At 303 years old NN is in his prime. After whooping on Philidor a few times he thrashes this master in London. Go NN!|
|Jun-18-12|| ||Abdel Irada: This should have ended in a win for White after the simple 9. hxg3, picking up the inadequately defended bishop on h6 after Black retreats his queen. This is one instance in which the reflexive check on f7 merely took the queen out of play and cost White a crucial tempo.|
