  schnarre: Knight sack, Queen sack, & Rook to the rear: Nice!

  Shams: taking nothing away from Spraggett, the Nxd5 sac is quite standard in the Alekhine-Chathard attack.

I've never seen anything but 10...g6, and this game is a good reason why. Very dangerous attack. Unless black is booked up to the gills, he should play 6...c5!? 7.Bxe7 Qxe7* 8.Nb5 0-0 9.Nc7 cxd4 and give up the a8 rook for a ton of play.

* or 7...Kxe7!? if you are feeling especially frisky

  schnarre: I've never been impressed with the French (that's usually the only time I ever win with 1. e4). <Shams> Certainly stronger, but can't be considered a "ton of play". Ditto on 10...g6!
Jun-28-08  Amarande: If 21 ... hxg5 22 Re8 is mate.

If 21 ... gxf6 22 Rgg8 and Black can save either the Bishop or the Knight but not both and ends up down a Rook.

If 21 ... Bc6 (preventing Re8 mate, saving the B, and leaving both White pieces attacked) 22 Rxg7! saves both!

A fun little game!

  beenthere240: I think KS is totally underrated and his website was the most incorrect and mind-blowing ever.
