  jaime gallegos: great miniature ! ( and I know these words together dont match quite well )
Dec-23-04  Whitehat1963: I can't believe this game ever took place. There are two earlier examples that follow same pattern!

  Willem Wallekers: <Madjesoomalops>
Could you be more specific, pls?
I can't find it on that long page.
Or maybe it was the wrong page.
Feb-19-05  Lawrence: Way to go, Tim. Wonderful to have you kibitzing here. Welcome from all of us.

  alexmagnus: Look Gibaud vs Lazard, 1924, the shorter variation of this game...
Premium Chessgames Member
  Madjesoomalops: Gibaud - Lazard was *not* shorter; h3/Ne3 was played on move 5, too. It went: 1.d4 d5 2.b3 Nf6 3.Nd2 e5 4.dxe5 Ng4 5.h3 Ne3 0-1 See the records page on

  alexmagnus: Was there really 1..d5 2.b3? Ive seen this game (Gibaud-Lazard) in several books, but everywhere there are only 4 moves: 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nd2 e5 3.dxe5 Ng4 4.h3 Ne3 0-1....

  alexmagnus: Hm, Mr. Krabbe, I wonder why you are the only who tells it was not a master game and it was 5 moves. "Amateur" and "around 1922" sound interesting, but who needed to put the real date, take 1 move away and tell it would be the shortest master game ever? there should be smbd who needed it..
Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: BTW about "friendly": the Immortal Game was also friendly but nobody says it is not to take seriously..
Premium Chessgames Member
  Madjesoomalops: All the books copy each other and give the 4-move version. It's true I'm one of the very few to give the correct version, but not the only one - I'm in the company of Gibaud and Lazard. Again, see my 'records' page.
Apr-13-06  MorphyMatt: <alexmagnus> you're right. A Gibaud vs F Lazard, 1924
Feb-15-09  WhiteRook48: I would play 2. c4
