|Oct-28-05|| ||DeepBlade: Whooo, thats one Queen Lock.
An all out material conquest.

|Apr-21-07|| ||sanyas: Of course the correct play was 8.♗f3 ♕g5 9.♕xg8 winning yet another piece. In the game Black should play 8...♗e7. The setting is simply Damiano's Defence, without, however, the necessity for White to sacrifice a piece.|
|Mar-18-08|| ||frank124c: Black's move 2. ... f6 is a no-no|

|May-11-09|| ||Chicago Chess Man: <sanyas> i'm not sure i understand why the "correct play" is 8. Bf3. Why would white, already ahead in material by a rook, rather take a rather useless minor piece than snag black's queen? In your line white's up a rook and a knight. In the game he's ahead a queen. Las time I checked a queen is worth more than a rook and a knight.|

Consider 8....Nbc6. White's game seems not that easy. Of course White can now choose 9.Qxe7† Bxe7 10.Bxg2 , netting the same profit (R+N) with the Queens off the board. But winning the Queen, no. White is losing control of g5: 9.Qf6 Bg7?! 10.Qh4 Nf5 and White is going to be 'only' up a Rook.
|May-12-09|| ||Chicago Chess Man: I think you meant 9...Nb6. But what about 10.Qf4 instead of 10. Qf6 How does black reply now? 10..Bh6?? doesn't work because after white captures, if black plays 11..Nf5 the white queen can simply return to f4.|
|Mar-10-10|| ||WhiteRook48: 2...f6??|
|Mar-10-10|| ||zb2cr: <sanyas> is incorrect. 8. Bf3 allows 8. ... Qg5 and the Black Queen escapes. White still wins the game on material grounds, being up by a Rook already. Still, 8. Qe5+ closes off the Black Queen's retreat and makes the deficit even more crushing.|
