Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-03-05  drukenknight: couldnt white try 5 Ng5 here w/ idea of 5..00 6 Ne6?
Feb-03-05  euripides: <dk> do you mean 6 Ng5 0-0 7 Bxf7+ Rxf7 8 Ne6 Qe8 9 Nxc7 Qd8 10 Nxa8 ? I think Black can play 6...d5 e.g. 7 ed Nb6 8 Bb3 Nfxd5 or 7 Nxd5 Nxd5 8 Nxf7 Kxf7 9 Bxd5+ Ke8 and I think Black's OK, but I'm not sure.
Feb-25-05  fgh: 6. Ng5 0-0 7. Bxf7+ Rxf7 8. Nxf7 Kxf7 and black is ok, and maybe even better because in the middlegame a bishop and a knight are much more active than a rook.
Feb-26-05  euripides: <fgh> yes, but 8 Ne6 looks stronger.
Apr-09-05  Helloween: White's position is not enviable in those types of lines(Ng5/Bxf7/Ne6). He's better off playing solidly and maintaining his small edge. See H Froeyman vs F Wuts, 2000 for an example of how bad that type of excursion gets.
Aug-02-13  GumboGambit: Whites a she, for the record
