Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-15-05  Elrathia Kingi: Nice variant on Legal's
Apr-14-05  Vischer: I'm curious. What about 6.Nxe5!? and if 6...dxe5 7.Bxf7+ Ke7 8.Bg5+ winning the queen. Against 6...Qe7 7.Bxf7+ Kd8 8.0-0 Qxe5 9.Re1 Q moves 10.Re8+ Kd7 11.Qxg4+ Kc6 12.Rxc8
Apr-16-05  Vischer: Ah I guess it doesn't matter because 6.Ng5 just wins immediately
Dec-20-06  Rubenus: <Vischer> 6. Nxe5 Qe7 wins the knight according to my analysis. Always watch out when you didn't castle yet!

In your line, if 8...Qc8 then 9.Qf7+ Kd8 10.Nxe6+, winning Black's Queen. Fact is, I'm surprised to see that <cg> has no games in the database with the 6.Ng5 continuation; looking for one was what got me to this game in the first place.

  Infohunter: <Rubenus: <Vischer> 6. Nxe5 Qe7 wins the knight according to my analysis.> 6.Nxe5 Qe7 7.Bxf7+ Kd8 8.O-O and if now Black proceeds to win the Knight with 8...Qxe5, then 9.Re1 gets Black into hot water right away, e.g. 9...Qf6 10.Re8+ Kd7 11.Qg4+ Kc6 12.Qa4+ etc.--the King hunt is on.

Personally, I'd recommend that Black play the correct move at his fifth turn, to wit 5...f6, and not the stinker 5...d6.

May-19-17  hudapri: <Infohunter> It's been 10 years but...

Instead of 12.Qa4+, 12.Bd5+ mates. Better play on 9. Re1 is 9... Qb5 and now an unusually forcing line.

10. Re8+ Qxe8 11. Bxe8 Kxe8 12. Qe2 Kf7 13. Qh5 g6 14. Qd5+ Kg7 15. Qd4+ Kg8 16. Qc4+ Kg7 17. Qxc7+ Nd7 18. Be3 Be7 19. Bd4+ Bf6 20. Bxf6+ Kf6 21. Qxd6+ Kf7 22. Re1. This kind of early Q trade for three pieces reminds me of Morphy vs Anderssen, 1858

But Black could also play 9... c6 with more complex defense.

Of course all this discussion is pointless because 6. Ng5 wins.
