|Feb-02-03|| ||mdorothy: I agree completely. I heard a story of a GM once sitting down for a casual game of chess, and proceeded to move into fools mate. After they got that out (and probably a big laugh) they reset the pieces and played a real game. I don't know if that's true or not, but its kinda the same. |
|Jan-26-04|| ||S4NKT: people who have faith in their systems, like the one white has set up here by move four, often ignore black's countermeasures, especially in the primary moves, and concentrate on establishing their formation. |
|Feb-22-04|| ||iron maiden: I know the database has at least four Fool's Mates, but is this the only Scholars' Mate? |
|Feb-22-04|| ||bumpmobile: Technically the scholars' mate is played by white isn't it? |
|Apr-11-04|| ||mack: Strangely, Takacs only other game in this database is over in six moves, when he lets his queen get trapped... |
|Nov-27-05|| ||Chopin: What on God's green earth was Spencer thinking?|
|Dec-01-05|| ||DeepBlade: A shame to chess!
Spencer wasnt even thinking moves ahead, he couldnt even see the mate threat!
|Apr-01-07|| ||Breunor: It would have been more amusing if Black had executed the mate with the Bishop instead of the Queen. But yeah, this looks like a composed game or something|
|Apr-01-07|| ||imatos: To me it seems like a pretty plausible-looking real game. White was preoccupied with building a nice elaborate structure of pawns and pieces on the queenside and completely neglected to even take a look at what's going on at the other side of the board. Among the lower ranks of patzers, games are often lost due to such an "approach." |
