|Aug-11-11|| ||OhioChessFan: 6. c4 Bb4+ 7. Kf2 Ne3 8. Bxe3 fxe3+ 9. Kxe3 and White is going to lose but can hang on a while.|

|Jan-06-12|| ||whiteshark: MegaCor database give the following intro:
[White "Larsson, Erik (SWE)"]
[Black "Englund, F."]
Dyckhoff's CC miniatures book attributed this game to the well-known chess
organiser <Erik Larsson, <but this game was played by a different person of the same name.>> Possibly it was even an OTB game (Stockholm 1942) as Burgess book states.
|Feb-28-12|| ||sevenseaman: After the opening error White defended as well as he could but the horse had bolted.|
|Feb-28-12|| ||whiteshark: Game of the Day|
|Feb-28-12|| ||KingV93: Pathetic way to play the KG as White. Leaving the e1-c5 diagonal open gives away a large initiative in an opening where it's White who's supposed to be taking it to Black by giving up the pawn. I'd have went with 6.♗c4 and tried to continue with the classical theme using 0-0 and working in the beloved ♗xf7+ in an attempt to put Black on the back foot.|
|Feb-28-12|| ||capablankka: What it happens if white play
12. Kb1 Ba4 13. bxc3 Bxb3 14.axb3 and after black lose the bishop of b4, white has enough compensation for the Quenn?

Well, first of all it's impossible for White to play 12. Kb1, because his king is on g1. Secondly, Black is threatening 12...Qe3#.
|Feb-28-12|| ||capablankka: Sorry,
12...Ba4 13.bxc3 Bxb3 14.axb3....and black lose bishop b4
|Feb-28-12|| ||Sastre: After 12.Nb1 Ba4 13.bxc3 Bxb3 14.axb3 Bd6 15.c5, Black has 15...Bxc5 16.dxc5 Qxc5+ 17.Nd4 Nc6 .|
|Feb-28-12|| ||bvwp: gizmo: 11..Qe3 mate|
|Feb-28-12|| ||gizmo: Sorry I am a beginner when it comes to chess so could anyone explain to me why white at 11 doesn't just capture the knight with his queen.|
|Feb-28-12|| ||gizmo: Thanks for the quick response bvwp.|
|Feb-28-12|| ||ProLogik: <gizmo: Sorry I am a beginner when it comes to chess so could anyone explain to me why white at 11 doesn't just capture the knight with his queen.>|
If white plays 11. QxNd1, then black can play 11. ...Qe3#
|Feb-28-12|| ||TheTamale: I guess the real stinker is 6) c4...? Although I admit I wouldn't have seen that Black's simple reply ties up the White QB. Once that knight gets in, it's curtains!|
|Feb-28-12|| ||FSR: Feeble play by White, but a very nice miniature by Englund - whoever he was. Fritz Englund, who I initially assumed this was, had been dead nine years by 1942.|
|Feb-28-12|| ||kevin86: A real nightmare for white...just when he thought his king was safe,the queen comes to grief.|
Quick:what famous killer was played by Robert Englund?
One,two Freddy's coming for you...
|Feb-28-12|| ||rapidcitychess: Truly a great game. Saying anything further is pointless.|
|Feb-28-12|| ||scormus: <FSR> Yes, I never before saw a KG played with such ineptitude by W. Noone who chooses it should go down unless all their guns are firing|
|Feb-28-12|| ||FSR: <scormus: <FSR> Yes, I never before saw a KG played with such ineptitude by W.>|
I assume you are being hyperbolic. If not, you may wish to consult N Tchinenoff vs R Maillard, 1925, for starters, http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches...
|Feb-28-12|| ||FSR: <scormus> An addendum to my prior post: I highly recommend Wiede vs A Goetz, 1880, as explained in <Phony Benoni>'s comment of June 7, 2009.|
|Feb-28-12|| ||theodor: <<FSR>: <scormus> An addendum to my prior post: I highly recommend Wiede vs A Goetz, 1880, as explained in <Phony Benoni>'s comment of June 7, 2009.> what's the name of the Wiede's game opening? - sepuko? kamikadze? both?|
|Feb-28-12|| ||scormus: <FSR> Hyperbole? Maybe a little ;)|
Maillard, of course is well known from beginner's books, so I supposed it had to have been played somwhere.
Or was it for instruction only?
Goetz is neat, with the underpromtion #.
b3 was hardly the move I'd have expected, nor B I imagine. seppuko, yes. aka hara kiri
|Feb-28-12|| ||Penguincw: The purpose of 11...Nc3 was to interfere the queen from guarding e3, which would deliver mate.|
|Feb-28-12|| ||FSR: <theodor><scormus> Wiede played as though he was smoking "weedy." But his 3.b3, though eccentric at best, might have fared better if he'd responded to 3...Qh4+ with 4.Ke2 rather than 4.g3. One often sees a sort of King's Gambit combined with b3 in the 1.e4 c5 2.b3 line of the Sicilian (christened the "Snyder Sicilian" by chess master/teacher/author/pederast Robert Snyder).
