Jul-31-04  DanielBryant: What might have been an improvement on move 7 for Black?

  Calli: 7...d5 is the main line see Morphy vs Bird, 1859
Dec-13-04  GreenDayGuy: Perhaps after 14... Qg6+ 15. QXQ PXQ offers black good endgame chances. Two connected passed pawns will be hard to stop.

  refutor: after 3.Bc4 Be7 is there something stronger than 4.Nf3?
Jun-02-05  iron maiden: <refutor> I used to always play 4. d4 here. Nf3 is probably the best though.
Jun-02-05  square dance: the main thing for all king's gambiteers to remember about the cunningham is that white just has to get the king bishop off of f1 before black can set up its Q+B battery and play Bh4+. if not your king ends up on e2. lets say you play 1.e4 e5 2.f4 exf 3.Nf3 Be7 4.d4 Bxh4+ 5.NxB QxN 6.Ke2(6.g3 fxg 7.hxg QxR) but, to answer <refutor>'s question, i think that after 3.Bc4 Be7 4.Nf3 is the strongest move as the cunningham is usually, as far as i can tell, a defense to the king's knight gambit.

  refutor: <square dance> i always liked the three pawns gambit 1.e4 e5 2.f4 exf 3.Nf3 Be7 4.Bc4 Bh4+ 5.g3 fxg3 6.O-O gxh2+ 7.Kh1

<14... Qg6+ 15. QXQ PXQ offers black good endgame chances> Actually, that looks hopeless to me after 14...Qg6+ 15. Qxg6 hxg6 16. Rxf6, and the pawns are not a factor since White threatens a crushing attack with 17. Nc3, 18. Re1+ etc.
May-26-07  gBizzle: this game just goes to show that kings gambit players suck, along with their opponents

Aug-15-07  Karpova: Reshevsky was a nine year old child at that time.
Aug-15-07  Petrosianic: Actually 11. They sort of fudged his age a bit as a child prodigy. He was really born in 1909.
Aug-15-07  RookFile: Was he really? Everything I ever read said 1911. I remember when I played Reshevsky in a postal game in the 1980's... Chess Life was saying he was born in 1911.

I mean Reshevsky wouldn't have cared.... the guy was over 70.... if he was born in 1909, why didn't he correct all of us?

Jun-12-09  WhiteRook48: Black was such a patzer
