Jan-12-04  jfc: I believe 7...d5 was tjhe losing move. After 8.e5, Black was in trouble
Feb-13-04  Lawrence: 12...Kd8 would have helped. (Junior 8) Could this guy's first name have been Noshtradamush?
Feb-13-04  Catfriend: For forseeing the attack? :)
Feb-13-04  Lawrence: Yes, and for not knowing how to spell his own name. (joke, joke)
Feb-13-04  Catfriend: LOL it's a combination of the seer and the mushs he uses...
Feb-13-04  Lawrence: That guy lived on thick mushy shoup.

  Phony Benoni: Well, it was a simul. And Marshall had the ill luck of falling for this eight years before Nimzowitsch vs Alapin, 1914, the most famous example of the queen sacrifice.
Dec-18-09  MaxxLange: oops!
