Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-14-03  Whitehat1963: Premature resignation for white, although I have trouble seeing a strong defense to black's immediate advantage.
Mar-25-04  ArturoRivera: All that i can say is that in move four, white could have easily deveoo the other knight and if Bishop to b4, Qd3 mades the trick
Mar-25-04  TrueFiendish: There's not a strong defence, and 6.f3 (the only move) is squashed by ...Qh4+. White was strong enough to know to resign. :-|
Mar-29-04  ArturoRivera: What are you saying?, if this variation were right, all profesionals players would do it, so i can enshure you that a lot of moves can be done against this variation.
Apr-13-04  TrueFiendish: Er, fact, I don't really know what you mean. All I meant was that after move 5 white is lost.

  Sneaky: <6.f3 (the only move)> Not so, White could also try 6.Qb3, but it's all very hopeless. The resignation here is not early at all, in fact it's perfectly timed.
Apr-13-04  TrueFiendish: I guess, theoretically, white could also go Qc2 or Qa4, so I was wholly wrong!

  patzer2: <TrueFiendish> You may not be entirely wrong. After 6. Qc2 or 6. Qa4 it seems to me White is probably still lost. For example, play could continue 6. Qc2 BxN 7. NxB Qxf2+ 8. Kd1 Nf6 with a pawn advantage and a clear material and positional advantage for Black. Still, White may be able to find counterplay in the complications after your suggested 6. Qc2 or 6. Qa4 at move six, and <Whitehat1963> has a point in his assertion that resignation is a bit premature.
Apr-15-04  TrueFiendish: How very amenable of you, but I agree with Sneaky. If it were me, I would have resigned in embarrassment.
Apr-15-04  Lawrence: eval -0.66 at 18 ply, hardly something to resign over even if you feel a bit embarrassed about having been so blind as to play 5.a3. <patzer2>, Junior suggests a different order, 6.♕c2 ♕xf2+ 7.♔d1 ♗xd2 8.♘xd2 ♘xd2 9.♕xd2. So alright, chappies, play up, play up, and play the game as good old Sir Henry Newbolt said. (Not a very popular poem after the slaughter of the First World War.)
Jun-22-04  ArturoRivera: Dory´s defense, thats how it is call this move (until move 3) , and i think that it became popular against the torre atack, however 4.- a3 stills give white and edge and he keeps the initiative after taking 4.-... d5 5.- e3, the black knight could have perfectly stayed there a little more, frustration of the player? maybe..., but with my line white should have no problem to ecualize and conserve the initiative
Dec-23-08  Whitehat1963: Wrath of Khan!
Dec-23-08  Xeroxx: There is a famous record by David Bowie called: Hunky Döry
