Jul-05-09  WhiteRook48: 3...Nf6
Oct-22-09  Wayne Proudlove: Greco's games must be composed didacticism, even I wouldn't fall for these traps and it took me a year just to figure out how the pieces in Chess move (slight exaggeration for the sake of argument). I'm interested in writing the best, most perfectly functional and also entertaining book on beginner's chess in the future and Greco definitely deserves a caefully considered chapter. I don't do much else these days except spend time alone, I don't even talk on the phone, the silver lining to that cloud is this website for the time being.
Oct-22-09  MaxxLange: <Wayne> yep. a lot of these games were composed by Greco, and seem to have been part of an uncompromising tactics curriculum
Dec-11-09  SirChrislov: 6...Bg7 7.gxh7+ Kf8 8.hxg8Q+ Kxg8 9.Qg4 Bxh1 with ok game for blk.
Dec-11-09  WhiteRook48: 10 Bc4+ e6 11 Bg5 (hello?)
Dec-12-09  SirChrislov: (Yes, hello?? who is this??)

<10.Bc4+? e6 11.Bg5> 11...Qf1, threatning ...Rxh2.

or,

10.Bc4+? d5! (hello?) 11.Qe6+ Kf8 12.Bd3(threat Bg6) 12...Qd6! (my own lines, no comp.)

Mar-05-10  Topista: It's actually just like my first win versus a guy I used to play in da past. It was fun to win with a queen sacrifice in my first game vs him before the eyes of a cute chick...
Apr-07-10  newzild: Very cute mate - top class stuff.
Oct-14-10  AnalyzeThis: This opening is fairly popular these days, there are people making this exact same mistake even today.
Feb-18-11  bolek88: The best in history (in my opinion :) :

1) Polerio
2) Greco
3) Philidor
4) de Labourdonnaise
5) Morphy
6) Alechin
7) Tal
8) Spassky
9) Fischer
10) Kasparov
---
11) Capablanca
12) Keres
13) Tartakower
14) Anderssen

Adolf - nomen omen :)
Jun-21-11  Llawdogg: Wow! That e pawn traveled all the way over to the h file!
Sep-03-11  DrMAL: Kudos to CG for figuring out the name attached to this awful "gambit" (3...f5?) in this already poor defense (beats me).
Sep-03-11  DrMAL: <sleepyirv: Hey, I'm new to algebraic notation. Why is it "gxh7" instead of "gxh7+"?> Greco didn't holler, "CHECK!"
Oct-27-11  master of defence: This game is fabulous.
Nov-15-11  AnalyzeThis: It really is. Yes, we all know today about the weak diagonal to the king, but over the board, white figured this out and left his rook hanging.
Aug-03-12  The Last Straw: No the best guy in chess history was NN!!!
Nov-03-13  paramount: Is any earlier game in this database?

If not, this game deserves GOTD!!

Apr-27-15  Ke2: such an awesome game, my favorite greco one
Jun-17-15  Shoukhath007: But in some chess sites nunn's place is occupied by unknown player. Is nunn is that unknown player
Mar-17-16  talhal20: Greco has prepared this trap. Must give him credit for that as he must have spent days on this with number of variations to develop this and many more traps.

  RookFile: It's logical, consistent play on both sides. Black puts his bishop on b7 and plays that to the max so he can win the rook on h1. Meanwhile, white has a more important target.
