Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-11-03  pawntificator: Refutor! Howdy. I think after 8. Qh5+ Qg6 9. Rxf4+ Nf6 10 Qh4 Bd7 your opponent should have played 11. e5 to win back the knight. Of course, you could continue 11...Rg8 and threaten mate but after 12 Qf2 he still gets the knight back. Of course, I can't really see any other way to keep the knight either. Hmm. Well, you played well, regardless. I always think black should win when white gives up that knight in the King's Gambit.

<1. e4 e5 2. f4 exf4 3. Nf3 g5 4. Bc4 g4 5. O-O gxf3 6. Bxf7+ Kxf7 7. Qxf3 Qf6 8. Qh5+ Qg6 9. Rxf4+ Nf6 10. Qh4 Bd6 11. Rf3 Re8 12. d3 Re5 13. g4 Kg7 14. g5 Nxe4 15. dxe4 h6 16. Rf6 Rxg5+ 17.

Jan-18-05  Saruman: 13.-Kg8 14.Rxf6 Ng6 14.Rxg6+ Kf7 15.Rg7++ Kf6 16.Qg5+ Ke6 17.Qf5#.
Nov-25-07  sambo: In the line directly above, white may mate two moves quicker: 14. Qd5+ Be6 15. Qxe6#
Apr-23-09  WhiteRook48: 9 Be3!!
Nov-01-09  ricardolopez: After 12...,Qg6 the game is not so clear (I think B game is better)
Mar-07-11  kontoleon: i love the double muzio gambit!

  sachistu: Does anyone have a reference source for this game? I have seen it listed with colors reversed. And also with F (F.K.?) Young and W Young, and just Young as White. I've also seen it with Pardentown as well as New Jersey as venues. Also, I have seen the score ending with White's 13th. Thanks in advance to anyone who knows the correct venue and player names.

  julillo: In 2012 Guess the Move gives the white to Marshall? is it?

After 12...Qg6 black is winning!
For example 12...Qg6! 13. Be5+ Ke8 14. Qxg6 Nxg6 15. Bxh8 Nxg8 Or 12...Qg6! 13. Bxd6 Ke8 14. Qe5 (15. Rxf8!) cx6 15. Qxh8 Qg7 witj three pieces for a Rook and two pawns
