|May-08-04|| ||notsodeepthought: Even in a correspondence game, NN does not change his penchant for spectacular defeats - speaking of which, could one find out who NN was from the postal records? But maybe it's better not to find out. |
|Dec-29-04|| ||GoodKnight: What a sequence! One sac after another. |
|Mar-27-06|| ||McCool: <notsodeepthought> Maybe the NN was too embarassed about his play to want to be identified.|
|Jul-22-07|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Anyone else get the feeling that this might be a composed game?|
|Jan-12-09|| ||psmith: After 11. d4+ white is better if not winning. The mate is forced after 11...Kxd4. the best defense seems to be 11...Kd6 12. e5+ Ke7 (all others lead to mate) 13. exf6+ gxf6, for example 14. Qg7+ Kd6 15. Bf4+ Kc6 16. d5+ Kb6 17. d6 cxd6 18. Qxh8 Nc6 19.
Nc3 Ne5 20. Nd5+ Ka6 21. Qxh7 b6 22. Qxh2 Ne7 23. Qe2+ Kb7 24. Nxf6 Nxf6 with advantage. If instead 13...Nxf6 14. Qxg7+ Ke6 15. Nc3 wins. Analysis aided by Fritz 5.32.|
It is unclear whether there is a better defense than 10... Bf6. The following is a sample of what I found using Fritz 5.32 (analyzing with the computer, not just letting it run):
10... Kd6 11. e5+ Kc5 12. b4+ Kb6 13.
Qd4+ Ka6 14. b5+ Ka5 15. Bb2 Qe7 16. Bc3+ Kxb5 17. Qd5+ Kb6 18. Na3 a6 19. Bd4+ wins.
|Apr-06-09|| ||WhiteRook48: all those sacs!
|Oct-09-10|| ||chesschampion11: GREAT!!!|
|Oct-09-10|| ||Dionysius: Hmm,I agree with An Englishman (and good evening to you too, Sir). Looks cooked up to me. And coincidentally Edwards seems to have had a playing pan of more than 80 years. Hmm, and again I say hmm.|
|Oct-09-10|| ||Phony Benoni: I'm not denying that games get cooked up, but I see no reason to suspect this one in particular. After all, it's not that unusual a theme. People have been sacrificing piece after piece to draw the Black king forward in various brands of the King's Gambit since I don't know when. Here's another example, bearing some resemblance to this game: H Ohman vs G Buk, 1932|
|Nov-12-10|| ||Knight13: Is 6. Bxf7+ sound?|
|Nov-13-10|| ||Sastre: I don't think Black is any danger after <7...Kf8 8.O-O+ Bf6 9.hxg3 d6 10.Nc4 Be6>. Therefore 6.Bxf7+ doesn't appear to be sound.|
|Nov-13-10|| ||Shams: 5.Ke2 is, I think, the modern treatment.|
|Nov-13-10|| ||whiteshark: <Shams: 5.Ke2 is, I think, the modern treatment.> It's 2.Ke2! according to User: WannaBe.|
|Aug-23-11|| ||profK: Aggression and gambits usually takes a drubbing in high level correspondence games, unless your opponent plays into it !!!|
|Sep-10-12|| ||JonathanJ: Why not 9. Qf5+?|
