  patzer2: The winning percentage for this strange black opening (1. e4 g5) seems unusually high, but that probably doesn't mean much due to the small sample size and lack of extensive GM play and analysis.

Still the opening 1. e4 g5 looks playable, but black must solve the problem of the weakeness on f5 (leaving a strong post on f5 for the white knight) and the weak backward pawn on f2 to survive against strong competition. Even though black didn't put up strong resistance in this game (going for a dubious queen sacrifice in a bad position), white certainly seems to have found a good idea for a plan to highlight and exploit some of the weakenesses inherent in black's opening strategy, at least in this game.

  patzer2: <skakmiv/> Good catch <skakmiv>. It would appear that 41 Qd4+ losing the queen with no compensation is a recording error. Correct, assuming white can solve one move mates, I would deduce is 41 Qd3#.
Nov-09-06  schnarre: The loss of the Queen didn't help Black's game, though Petersen held out for a while despite that.

I think that ...d6 (or even ...d5)temporarily solves any weakness on f5.

Oct-22-12  Abdel Irada: I was hoping to see Black queen his king.
