|Feb-22-05|| ||aw1988: Surely g6 was better. |
|Apr-02-05|| ||spares1080: Is this sacrifice actually Sound?? im trying to look but this is the only game in the database. |
|Apr-02-05|| ||tpstar: <spares1080> Hello! Welcome to the group! We looked at this line in The Kibitzer's Café on 7/5/04 where I suggested 8 ... g6 9. Nf7 Bxe6 10. Nxh8 Kxh8 11. Qxb7 Qc6! as good for Black, also 8 ... g6 9. d4 h6 10. Nf7 Rh7 holds, instead of the blunder 8 ... h6?? losing instantly, so I think 5. Bxf7+?! is unsound. More typical is 5. Bb3, then Black equalizes with 5 ... d5 M Kuijf vs Bagirov, 1989 See you around. |
|Apr-02-05|| ||MUG: Another game with 5.Bxf7+ (and a similar result) is:
Prestel,O - Doederlein,F
Endingen AT, 1987
1.e4 Nf6 2.e5 Nd5 3.Nf3 d6 4.Bc4 Nb6 5.Bxf7+ Kxf7 6.Ng5+ Kg6 7.h4 h6 8.h5+ Kxg5 9.Qf3 Nd5 10.d3+ Nf4 11.Qxf4# 1-0
Have no idea if this sac is sound, but <aw1988> and <tpstar> suggestion of 8...g6 certainly seems good for Black.

|Jul-01-06|| ||ChessDude33: 6. e6+ gives black alot of chances to go wrong.
6...Bxe6 7. Ng5 Kf6 8. Qf3+ with a strong attack (8...Kxg5 leads to a mating attack starting 9. h4+).
6...Kxe6 7. Ng5 Kf6 8. Qf3+ with the same scenario as 6...Bxe6
6...Ke8 7. Ng5 (7...c5 8. Nf7 Qc7 9. Nxh8 Bxe6 10. Qh5+ saves the knight) wins back the Bishop.
6...Kg8 is the only way out, white still has the trap in the game but otherwise black has the better game with correct play. Unsound yea, but it sure does look great for a 1 min game!
|Mar-15-07|| ||AAAAron: These moves are pure power!!!! How can one stop something with so much power. You don't!|
|Sep-20-08|| ||jerseybob: Yes, I think 8..g6 is definitely the move. Black has some indigestion, but should unwind.|
|Dec-17-09|| ||GrahamClayton: I wonder if Powers shouted "Yeah Baby!" after winning this game?|
|Dec-17-09|| ||WannaBe: O, behave!|
|Dec-18-09|| ||Red October: groovy baby....|
