Mar-11-05  p8riot: Check out this amazing discovered checkmate by the (recently) late great Arnold Denker! :^)
Mar-11-05  Knight13: Very good play by White. Castle king side seems like a mistake!
Mar-12-05  Saruman: Funny detail, the checkmate should not arrive until 19.f7(+) ♕f6 20.♗xf6#.
Aug-17-06  Hannibal: Black's position after 8...Bf8 is funny
Aug-17-06  AniamL: Alternatively, 17.Nxh7 leads to a forced mate:

17.Nxh7+ Nf5
(17...Kxh7 18.Qh4+ Kg8 19.Qh6, mate to follow)
18.g4, and with the protector of the h6 square deflected, white forces a rather simple mate in 6 moves.

Aug-18-06  Caissanist: Denker seems to be toying with his opponent here. He could have won quickly and routinely with 9.f6, while the line he chose would give black a perfectly good game after 10..d4.

  fm avari viraf: Lovely game but as <Saruman pointed out it's not 19.f7#> because the Queen interposes.
May-03-08  JimmyVermeer: There is a faster forced mate with 17 Bd3 Nf5 18 Bxf5 Qe8 19 Qh4 Qe2+ 20 Kxe2 h5 21 Bxg6 Kg8 22 Qe4 d6 23 Bxf7+ Rxf7 24 Qg6+ Rg7 25 Qxg7#

17 Nxh7 Re8 18 Ng5 Nf5 19 Qg3 Re4 20 Nxf7+ Kh7 21 Ng5+ Kh6 22 Nxe4 Ng7 23 Bf7 Qxf6 24 Bxf6 g5 25 Qxg5+ Kh7 26 Qxg7#

  tpstar: I wonder if Denker discarded 8. Bxf7+! Kxf7 9. Qb3+ due to 9 ... d5!? 10. ed+ (10. Qxb4 Nc6) Be6 11. Qxb4 Qxd6:

Now White can't grab on b7 due to 12 ... Qd1#.

After 17. Nxf7+! Black could try 17 ... Rxf7 18. Bxf7 Nxf7 but White still has 19. Qh6! Qg8 20. Re1 winning, like 20 ... Nxh6 21. f7+ Qg7 22. f8=Q+ Ng8 23. Qxg7#, or 20 ... Nc6 21. Re8! is decisive. So Black is forced into 17 ... Rxf7 18. Bxf7 Qf8 19. Bb3 Nf7 which at least covers h6 twice.

The Two Bishops!

Dec-11-13  Sebastian88: 7...Ng8? Black should have play 7...d5! 8.Bb5+ Nd7 9.Qg4 Qe7! 10.Qxg7 Rf8 11.Nf3 c6 with a good game.
