|Oct-09-10|| ||Octal: 10 ... Ke8 11 Qh5+ g6 12 Nxg6 Nf6 13 Qg5 Rg8 14 Rxf6 hxg6 (14 ... Rxg6 15 Rf8+) and I'm not sure what to make of it. An idea of Qh6 followed by Qh7 (if the rook were protected) could be brilliant or just stupid. Nd5 is an idea so then white can grab the Bishop on g3, but ... c6 can be annoying. d4 is an obvious choice, but black can't be given any time to consolidate.|
|Oct-14-10|| ||fanofchess82: A beautiful Kings gambit line. For all the analysis that refutes the Kings gambit, the opening never fails to thrill and enthrall. The darling of the romantics, this opening if well played can lead to amazing combinations. Look at the White King's position after 8....Bg3 - an exposed king, but the rook control an open file. What white lacks in material he has enough compensation in space and control. A good game.|
|Oct-14-10|| ||rilkefan: I was wondering about 10...Ke8 - nothing jumped out after Qh5, so maybe just 11.Nf7 followed by d3, consolidating, and resuming the attack.|
|Oct-14-10|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: May all chess players have their own Evergreen Game.|
|Oct-14-10|| ||al wazir: It wouldn't have been as evergreen, but white could also have won with 14. Qxg3+ Kd4 (14...Kd2 15. Qd3#) 15. Nd5 Kc5 (if any other move, then 16. Qc3#) 16. Qc3+ Kb5 17. a4+ Ka6 18. Qc4+ b5 19. Qxb5#.|
|Oct-14-10|| ||Benzol: Is "Passing The Buck" a better pun than the one that was used?|
|Oct-14-10|| ||Once: So let's count the pieces. Black has lost a pawn, white has lost three pawns. Black's e pawn has ended the game all the way over on h2.|
Black has all his pieces left, but white has given up queen, knight and both bishops.
Sounds like a massacre ... and it is - for white! The black king is mated all alone on e3.
|Oct-14-10|| ||NewLine: This game is out of this world!|
|Oct-14-10|| ||Sim1: Amazing that this game was played in 1932, 20 years before Fischer's "refutation" of the King's Gambit.|
Maybe some of the stronger players on here would care to comment on the differences between this line for black and Fischer's?
|Oct-14-10|| ||Metameryk: "Pearl Buck" might fit better. This is striking, amusing and painful at the same time. Line when Black accepts all offered pawns (f4, g3, h2) looks suicidal though.|
|Oct-14-10|| ||moi: 8...Bg3 ? what an horrible move!|
|Oct-14-10|| ||weisyschwarz: "Make a Quick Buck".|
|Oct-14-10|| ||Madmartigan: I can remember winning a tournament game with the "three pawns gambit" as white as well some years back. While not objectively correct, the mere fact that after 7. ..., gxh2 8. Kh1 my opponent started to think for 20 minutes to me was worth the pawns already, :).|
|Oct-14-10|| ||kevin86: Six for a buck: After move fourteen,white threatened-|
15 ♖d3#;15 ♖f3#;15 ♕f3#;15 ♕e2#;15 ♕xg3#;15 ♘d5#. Black prevented all mates but the first.
|Oct-14-10|| ||nevski: Is this guy, Buck, a blind man?Or is he a patzer, perhaps?|
|Oct-14-10|| ||lost in space: yes, brutal chess|
|Oct-14-10|| ||whiteshark: #15 - the Oracle of Ohman.|
|Oct-14-10|| ||fetonzio: how about "how ard u oh man ima gonna buckaroo"? make any sense to anyone?|
|Oct-14-10|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: Bonita miniatura !!|
|Oct-14-10|| ||fm avari viraf: Buck has no sting!|
|Oct-14-10|| ||redorc19: a nice game to look at when you are bored out of your mind...|
|Oct-14-10|| ||James Bowman: Thats just too cool.|
|Mar-12-13|| ||FSR: This game was in Irving Chernev's classic <The 1000 Best Short Games of Chess>. I remember Chernev remarking that after 14.Rad1 White threatened no fewer than six mates in one.|
|Jan-25-16|| ||whiteshark: More Bang for the G Buck|
|Oct-06-16|| ||Phony Benoni: <"Here's a brilliant brevity from the Omaha Chess Club won by Howard E Ohman, Nebraska Champion. Game submitted by R. B. Green of Council Bluffs Iowa."> -- column by Clif Sherwood, Los Angeles Times, December 20, 1931.|
Accordingly, I have changed the date of the game from1932 to 1931. The latter date is not certain, but 1932 cannot be correct.
