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.

Apr-03-17  Jeweller: Chess friends. Chess engines analyze this game here: http://proint.narod.ru/jeweller/jew...
Apr-15-17  Yigor: The correct line: 1. e4 b6 2. d4 Bb7 3. Bd3 f5 4. exf5 Bxg2 5. Qh5 g6 6. fxg6 Bg7 7. gxh7 Kf8 8. Nf3 Nf6 9. Qg6 Bxf3 10. Rg1 Rxh7 11. Qg3 Be4 12. Bxe4 Nxe4 13. Qf3 and white should win. This refutes the Matovinsky gambit.

PSCC: 2E --> 2E1b (Owen defense) --> 2DE1b --> 2DEf1b

  ChessHigherCat: The O-NN defense.
Jun-06-17  catlover: The hapless NN once again bites the dust.

  kevin86: mate in 8 with queen sac
Jun-06-17  Howard: Who the hell comes up with GOTD's like THIS ?
Jun-06-17  petemccabe: I wonder what is the furthest away from its original file any pawn has ever gotten. Where's Tim Krabbé when I need him?
Jun-06-17  schnarre: ...Alas, Poor NN!
Jun-22-17  Christoforus Polacco: Polerio's analysis and Greco's games this is begining of modern theory in chess.
