  An Englishman: Good Evening: Wow--Black found a way to play the Wilkes-Barre versus the King's Gambit.
Oct-04-05  lopium: hinch on a corner-
Oct-04-05  rya: sweet game
Oct-04-05  PaulLovric: white player poorly
Oct-04-05  Counterpoint: The pun is a reference to Edward Elgar's graduation perennial 'Pomp and Circumstance'.
Oct-04-05  chesswonders: nice little game
Oct-04-05  Atking: Right the end is sweet but white 14.Bd2 is a nonsense. Some where between the 11 and 14th a c3. To play for sparkling move white can try 10.Bg5 c6 11.NxNd4!!?? with 12.Ne6 (RxBd1 and Nxg7-Nf5) It's quite funny and good enought for a play.
Oct-04-05  dakgootje: yeah its a nice game
Oct-04-05  DanRoss53: <Atking> Agreed... 14. c3 ♘xb3 15. axb3 looks winning for White and even 14. ♗g5 h6 15. ♗h4 g5 16. ♗f2 looks rather drawish. It's hard to find a *worse* move fourteen {other than, of course, 14. ♕e2 -- but that's just inane).

White's game goes awry very quickly and is mated in post and in haste.

Oct-04-05  YouRang: White won the f7 pawn with 7. Bxf7 (... Kxf7? 8. Nxe5+ Ke8 9. Nxg5).

A nice little tactic, except that it opened the f-file for the black rook - which turned out to be white's undoing later on.

  al wazir: <YouRang: White won the f7 pawn with 7. Bxf7... it opened the f-file for the black rook - which turned out to be white's undoing later on.> Winning the pawn lost two tempi for white. 12. h3 cost another one, and as a result he didn't have time for O-O-O or to find another way to protect his ♔.
