Jan-10-09  WhiteRook48: I think 18...Ne5?? was the losing move.
Jan-20-09  WhiteRook48: the trap between 16. Rg1! was amazing. So Testa sees that. Great trap... 16...Nxd3?? 17. Rxg7+ Kh8 18. Rg8+!! Kxg8 19. Rg1+ and wins.
Jan-31-09  WhiteRook48: normally someone sees this trap in seconds, but it takes a patzer to think over this for months before finding the trap
Feb-01-09  WhiteRook48: amazing sacrifices

  RandomVisitor: 17...g6 looks like black's last chance.

  RandomVisitor: An interesting line is: 17.Rxg7+ Kxg7 18.Qg3+ Kf6 19.Qh4+ Kf5 20.Qxh7+ Kf6 21.Qh4+ Kf5 22.Rd1 .

  RandomVisitor: 17.f4! also looks winning.
Aug-10-09  sfm: sfm: <WhiteRook48: I think 18...Ne5?? was the losing move.> As we saw, it was definitely a losing move. But white threatens 19.Qxg7# - and the only other way to prevent it is 18.-,Qc6+ 19.Bd5,QxB+ 20.QxQ...

Aug-10-09  ShadowRider: Wow! That's major ownage by the good doctor!
Aug-10-09  randomsac: The Danish gambit always produces very exciting games. Great mating sequence at the end.
Aug-10-09  lzromeu: wow!!!! Monday, blood monday GOTD game. How many sacs??? The pun is perfect.

  Chessmensch: Black played into white's hands at every opportunity. Apart from the individual tactical examples of this, black cleared off white's pawns giving white's pieces direct attacks to black's kingside--and then castled right into the onslaught. On top of this we have white's sac party. A memorable game!

  kevin86: Sharp sac lead to brilliant mate. Maybe it could be a future puzzle.
Aug-10-09  WhiteRook48: why not just 17 a3 hoping black will play 17...Nxd3?? when white gets a mate in 4
Aug-10-09  outplayer: 16...Qh4 and black has got the upper hand.
Aug-10-09  outplayer: 18.Rg6 leads to mate.
Aug-10-09  outplayer: 14...Nc6
Aug-10-09  muratski: <outplayer: 16...Qh4 and black has got the upper hand> I don't think so,
Aug-10-09  SirChrislov: Nice play, Dr.
He undoubtedly must have pulled that mating attack off the sleeves of a magician say from, I don't know, Riga?
Premium Chessgames Member
  GrahamClayton: There's a nice economy at the finish - White's two remaining pieces combine to force checkmate, while the four Black pieces are powerless to stop it.
Jul-18-12  master of defence: 7.Bxf7+ looks better than 7.Nf3.

  Domdaniel: Putting out fires with gasoline.
