  mynameisrandy: Mueller really slapped a mustache on Duchamp's combination.
Jul-30-05  Nicholson: I love Duchamp's work as an artist (if that's the term one applies to Dada's "father"), but I can only assume that he was drunk during this game.

Mar-15-09  WhiteRook48: Du, you're the Champ!
Mar-25-09  TheKingOfSpades: Quick and fast,
Duchamp taking a quick beating!
Sep-16-09  WhiteRook48: he makes Duchamp look like a patzer
Oct-18-09  antharis: Hmm, I guess Duchamp saw only the variation:
8. Bxd8 Nxc3
9. bxc3 Bxc3+
10. Qd2 Bxd2+
11. Kxd2 Kxd8
after which black is indeed one pawn ahead. 9. Nxc6! is the in-between move that refutes the combination.

<antharis>,
Duchamp probably analysed 9.♕d3 ♘e4+ 10.♔d1 ♘f2+ and 9.♕b3 ♘d4 10.♕b4 ♘c2+, but as you said,9.♘c6 is the spanner in the works.
