  InspiredByMorphy: 8. ...Bf5 9.Bxf5 gxf5 10.h6 Qd7 11.Qh5+ Kd8 would have been a better continuation for black. Although all in all I think white stands positionally better though down a pawn.

  Phony Benoni: What was Black thinking?
Jan-17-07  Silverstrike: After 6...g6 I think that 7.Nxh7 is good, as I have seen this played in another game where white won quite convincingly. I've forgotten which though.
Jan-02-08  Whitehat1963: Black's play: It's a sin!
Apr-19-10  sfm: <InspiredByMorphy: 8. ...Bf5 9.Bxf5...>

But White can play 9.hxg6,BxB 10.QxB.

If now 10.-,h6 then 11.g7,Bxg7 12.Qg6+ winning a piece.

So, Black can't prevent White playing gxh7, and what a pawn and the White queen has access to g6 and that is all really tragic...

Sep-14-11  dadoktor: what about 7.Nh7 threatening Bxg6# i think it wins even faster than the actual game

  PhilFeeley: Nigel Davies discussed this game on his "Chess for Scoundrels" DVD. Krogius was playing for a win, and said he couldn't concentrate properly or calculate. His opening move 1...f5 was actually the beginning of the end! He went downhill very quickly after that. Not defending the knight with 5...d5 was his next error, as he didn't want to play without his queen. White's attack was pretty relentless after that.

It almost looks like the game of a patzer.

Dec-07-15  Granny O Doul: The twice-suggested 7. Nh7 looks like a blunder to me. 7... Rh7, and then what?

  Domdaniel: 1...f5 is quite playable - though if you want to transpose into the Dutch after 1.Nf3 it might be better to play 1...e6 (for the Classical Dutch or Iljin-Zhenevsky), or 1...g6 (Leningrad) or even 1...d5 (Stonewall).

Rainer Knaak has suggested that Black's 2...Nf6 is already a mistake. 2...Nc6 is preferable.
