Mar-04-04  Egghead: That's beautifully sharp. But 16.Qd2 would have held, wouldn't it?
Mar-04-04  Lopin: Nope. 16.Qxd2 Qf6+ 17.Ke3 (forced - otherwise queen is lost) Qf4+ 18.Kd3 Bf5 mate.
Mar-04-04  Egghead: I don't know. ... 17.Qf4 does give up the queen, but White gets a rook and a bishop in return. I wouldn't resign yet.
Oct-28-04  rochade18: 15...Nd2 is a wonderful sackrifice, allowing Bf5 with check (mate) after 17...Qf4+
Sep-26-07  ColonelCrockett: this game goes to show you . . . Bxf7 is just better (mostly because it brings on less complication). It's interesting how this compares to other games in this line (and these two players). . . the f-file proves impotant in most of the games.
May-23-12  Cibator: I know the game date is right because I remember seeing it published in "Chess" soon afterwards. Nun's profile on here gives his birth date as 1957. Was he REALLY only 11 years old when he played this??!

  SwitchingQuylthulg: <Cibator> This and other CC games attributed here to Jiri Nun were likely played by Josef Nun instead :)
May-25-12  Cibator: Aha! Thanks, <SwitchingQuylthulg:>. Another case of player confusion, still alas occasionally to be found here.
