|Oct-04-07|| ||Shams: the only game in the db for either player.|
|Oct-04-07|| ||al wazir: The name is probably pronounced "bed-OW." The German word "bedauern" means "deplore." "Konietzka" is Slavic name, meaning something like "final." I would say that in the final analysis <CG>'s pun is deplorable.|

|Oct-04-07|| ||kevin86: The strange paradox in this game was that the bishops that seemed to be such a big part in black's attack,were actually expendable.|
The opening is called "Vienna Gambit".I guess that's another way of say a transition to the Falkbeer Counter Gambit.
|Oct-04-07|| ||twin phoenix: Kevin86 actually the transition to the faulbeer is stronger with the vienna move order than in a traditional kings gambit. (why i ended up giving up on the vienna move order.)|
blacks play sparkled in this game. 9. R-d8! (instead of what i expected (O-O-O) is very strong. whites 10.c3?? looks to me to be horribly mistaken.(white needed development.)
Blacks subsequent play starting with the psuedo-sack 14.--,Qe7!! with the dark squared bishop never leaving h4 (at least not until the true sack 19.--,Bxg3!!) brings joy to a chess players heart. even the last move is enjoyable. f6 instead of the blah RxQ+. this was a great game!
|Oct-04-07|| ||pawnofdoom: I don't see how this game is that great. White didn't castle early enough, was too greedy, and got attacked and is going to lose a queen. And I think 13. Nxc6 brings white into a far better position, because first the black rook moves, then whites knight gets exchanged off with check, and then white just castles safely and goes on to win the game 2 pawns up|

Could you expand on that please? I was actually just wondering about that move.
|Dec-12-07|| ||twin phoenix: hi Beginner64 sorry it took so long to get back to you. f6 gets blacks last piece into play, stops whites pawn wedge and prepares for the kill. rxq isn't bad by any stretch of the imagination but black can do that at his leisure so why not get ready for the kill?|
