Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-28-04  gmann: Another example of a player giving up too early. Surely the loss of a knight is preferable to the loss of a match by forfeit!

  tpstar: 7 ... Qxc5?? loses a piece to 8. Nxe4 and Black cannot recapture 8 ... dxe4? due to 9. Qd8#. Black's resignation was entirely understandable.
Nov-20-11  TheoNov: I agree it's too early to give up because Black has a fighting change. He should regain a pawn or two for the piece, with a pair of coupled passers backed by rooks. The onus is on White to prove that he can win.

The game might continue 8. Nxe4 Qb6 9. Ned2 Qxb2 10. Rb1 Qxa2 11. e4 Bd6 12. e5 Bc5 13. Ne4 Nd7 14. Nd6+ Bxd6 15. exd6 Qa3 16. Qd4 f6 17. Bg3 O-O 18. Be2 Qc5 19. c4 e5 20. Qxd5+ Qxd5 21. cxd5 a6 22. Nd2 b5 23. Nb3 Rd8 24. Rd1

An inaccuracy or loss of tempo for white could minimize the advantage.
