Feb-02-08  Rolfo: <jovack> Some Madames just don't learn.. They want to be conquerred :)
Feb-14-08  ruyfanatic: Napoleon won 75% of his games. That's pretty good.
Feb-14-08  Riverbeast: I wouldn't be surprised if this game was pre-arranged, or if she just lost on purpose....

Napoleon was really a weak player, though he was known to have a predilection for moving his knights often in the opening...they said this reflected the fact that he favored the cavalry in warfare

Mar-17-08  Samagonka: What a crazy King!

  whiteshark: ♕ to ♔: "See how you manage all on your own, then."
Mar-17-08  Whitehat1963: LOL! <whiteshark>

To me, this looks like one of Morphy's slaughters.

Mar-17-08  Whitehat1963: Actually, I think this makes for a good Tuesday/Wednesday puzzle after 10...Kd6.
Oct-20-08  ChessKaze: It make me laugh :))) Same game as 2 years ago. Madame jumped for same trap twice!
Jan-24-09  WhiteRook48: great king hunt
Jan-28-09  WhiteRook48: the other game is no longer in the database
Aug-09-09  David2009: Napoleon did well despite Madame De Remusat 's provocative opening.
Jan-11-10  ChessKnightsOfLondon: Madame sadly fell into the trap of getting her king exposed early in the game. Indeed her play was sadly a little weak and Mr Napoleon punished her accordingly.

  HeMateMe: Madame Remusat met the same fate as the russians at Borodino.
Jul-13-10  renumeratedfrog: She apparently played all her chess matches against Napoleon in the nude, which leads me to believe that the game itself was just a excuse for a sexual liaison and was probably staged.

  brankat: Judging by this game, particularly the first two moves, she probably understood Chess better than Napoleon did. Must have been obliged to loose :-)
Jan-05-12  JoergWalter: <brankat: Must have been obliged to loose> her job was to surrender at any time.
Jan-26-15  GoldenBird: Napoleon plays like he would on the front, fighting relentlessly with an initiative, giving up part of his army if necessary
Apr-30-15  A.T PhoneHome: After this game Napoleon Bonaparte and Madame De Remusat signed a Treaty.
Jul-02-16  kishore4u: Nice opening!!
Apr-15-17  chessgame901: what a game!

Sep-03-18  Granny O Doul: Bad as this is as a game, it's even worse as "analysis". Call it a composition.
Nov-13-18  mulde: Claire de Remusat (= Claire Élisabeth Jeanne Gravier de Vergennes, comtesse de Rémusat), was a 24 year "old" lady, and in these hours she was going to beg for the life of the Duke of Enghien's life when she met Napoleon. From far it remains a bit to Prussia's Duchess Louise of Mecklenburg-Strelitz ("Louise, Queen of Prussia") when she unsuccessfuly beged Napoleon three years later in Tilsit 1807 for peace. Whatever: You can reach this opening from an Alekhine with 2.d3 and from a Nimzo-Tango (1.-Nc6), and it's quite a good (may be not the best) way to equality after 2.d3. But I don't think this game was really played. It seems to be composed in order to make Napoleon greater. We know these compositions from Greco who used them to teach his "students" (for money, of course) some eternals.
Dec-28-18  HarryP: Unimpressive.
