  jaime gallegos: with Bxh7+ starts a nice combination with six movements to checkmate !!!
Jan-30-04  Hidden Skillz: why rent more ppl playin the b4 against the sicilian?? i think its very nice sumthin like the evans gambit..
Feb-14-04  Hidden Skillz: when i analyzed this position from move 8. e5..my program came up wit a mate in 29 moves..this is the best black could have played..8.Bc7 9.Bxh7+ Kh8 10.Ng5 Nxe5 11. dxe5 g6 12.Qf3 Bxe5 13.Nxf7+ Rxf7 14.Qxf7 Bg7 15.Bg5 Kxh7 16.Bxe7 Qg8..from there on u exchange the queens n end up winning the game..
Oct-20-04  sumant 9: How old actually NN is?Is he a human or a computer?
Nov-29-04  white pawn: He's about 400, give or take a few years. He's a slow learner, however. I imagine that by the time he's 2000 or so, he'll be the man to beat.
Aug-10-05  SneechLatke: Stupid Wing Gambit! *grumble*
Aug-10-05  mack: Thanks for that insightful piece of analysis.
Aug-10-05  SneechLatke: <mack> But of course! It is my pleasure!
Aug-10-05  SneechLatke: Following up: As a Sicilian player myself, I hate to see the Sicilian lose to dubious side lines/gambits played by people who are afraid or unwilling to enter the main lines.
Aug-10-05  n30: blind! simul! awesome!
Aug-27-07  wolfmaster: <SneechLatke< All Kolty wanted to do was create a unblanced position, and it certainly worked! Great lesson of the Bxh7 sac.
Oct-16-07  Jesspatrick: 12. Qc2+ Nd3+ 13 Qxd3+ Kf6 14.Nh7# was possible too. Where else could you have a combo with four out of five half moves being check?
Sep-17-10  mig26: O-O ?? bad move

  scutigera: As an aside on the choice of opening, it is the goal of most players giving blindfold simuls to have all of the games they're playing be as different as possible, in order to avoid making a move in one that was meant for another, similar one. Likely the gambit here was as much a mnemonic aid as an attempt by a professional to bamboozle a probable amateur.
Sep-05-14  posoo: My god, just LOOK at dis MACK fello! He joined da chessgames website in Septumbs 2013. LSAT SEEN Decumbs of dat year. And in dat SHORT TIME.?

THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF KOBITZES. He mustve done NOTHING BUT KOBITZ for three munfs! Datrs almost SIXY KOBITZ PER DAY.

posoo has been around over a decade and barely has 200 lolololol.

Sep-10-14  MarkFinan: This is the oldest trick in the book! But when I look at things from blacks perspective then 0-0 or even f6 look pretty natural!? I do admittedly only play 5% of my games with the black pieces but this is a blindfold game so I'm 100% sure I wouldn't have reached this position.. And I love this wing/b pawn gambit..
