|Oct-31-05|| ||cu8sfan: All Black did was dodging bullets, he never got around to playing chess. Funny this game was played (almost) on Halloween.|
|Oct-31-05|| ||gazzawhite: <cu8sfan> Wow, didn't notice that at first. Only 4 days away!|
|Oct-31-05|| ||knight openings: interesting.Maybe you should call it "pawn pusher system"|
|Oct-31-05|| ||nsteinme: This opening is actually known as the Halloween Attack (also Müller und Schulze Gambit), hence its selection for game of the day today. For a very nice article about it, see:
Or for a shorter bit:
<khense: can white get away with it?> The former article concludes: "[Now,] I know that 4.Nxe5 is not a student's joke, but a real gambit, an interesting adventure, an opening in the modern spirit, where activity is more important than material. At the core, it is probably unsound (both Jakob and Wind [who have analyzed it extensively] think so), but the discovery that even something like this is playable at a fairly high level enriches chess." He further goes on to say that he would not try it over the board against a very strong opponent but in blitz chess it can be a very deadly weapon: "any Black under GM-level who thinks it is plain nonsense, will be wiped off the board with it by a strong White who knows what he is doing."
|Oct-31-05|| ||Saruman: Hahah, I tried this recently at http://chessanytime.com/. After I had crushed my opponent he was very agitated and said some things I cant mention here...|
I would also like to see more games in which black deviates with 5.-Ng6.
|Oct-31-05|| ||mravikiran: Excellent game, One of the best Petroff "flanks" I have ever seen. (There are some excellent games with: e4 e5, Nf3 Nf6, Nxe5 d6, Nxf7.)|
|Oct-31-05|| ||Benzol: Minchev has a good deal of experience with this variation. See find similar games section.|
|Oct-31-05|| ||Bobwhoosta: Ah, the Cochrane gambit, with nxf7. It's a very different type approach than this one, in which white tries for positional compensation for the piece. It's said that if white gets his e and f-pawns to the 5th rank he has compensation.|
|Oct-31-05|| ||Bobwhoosta: <Gantasic: If QxR then QxB> The only thing I can see about those moves is that when black takes the bishop it is with check, thereby taking the initiative from White. You should never allow this to happen if you sacrifice like that in the opening, the only compensation you have is that initiative, and once it's gone...|
|Oct-31-05|| ||Koster: After Ng6 I see nothing for white. Just a matter of time until he runs out of attacking moves.|
|Oct-31-05|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: This game reminds me of the famous L Passmoor vs L Waerstad, 1999.|
|Oct-31-05|| ||Dres1: A good way for black is 6...Bb4|
|Oct-31-05|| ||kevin86: Funny story:In October of 1994,with the baseball season cancelled and hockey on strike,I decided on a different form of entertainment;I bought a VCR-during the fateful month,I bought all eight (at the time,now there are 11) of the Friday the 13th movies. Recently,I bought the DVD set of Jason.|
Yes,I watch baseball and hockey,but now also have a large collection of movies.
Happy Halloween!! Enjoyed the game!!
|Oct-31-05|| ||bishopawn: Trick and treat! That was incredible. Is there a value as great as persistence?|
|Oct-31-05|| ||kevin86: How about patience? Jus look at the white rook at a1 in today's puzzle.|
I guess you can be persistingly patient,though that sounds like a Yogi-ism or a oxymoron.
|Oct-31-05|| ||underrated: wikipedia.org is an amazing reasource. it has more details on this chess (in a few areas at least) than dose this site which is completely devoted to the subject. the hawlloween gambit is really fun to play in blitz (as white that is)...|
|Oct-31-05|| ||visceral infestation: I love it! This will help me rewrite my openings to avoid the boring four knights (yawn). The question still remains: Is it sound? It just seems that there should be a paralyzing move for black somewhere in there, I just can't seem to find it.|
|Oct-31-05|| ||hippatxu: Probably unsound. 5...g6 6.e5 g8 7.c4 d5 or 7...b4 8.f3 e7 are both good defenses for black (refutation?)|
U can see more about this interesting opening on http://www.chessville.com/instructi... and http://d-artagnan.webpark.pl/szachy...
I hope it helps
|Oct-31-05|| ||visceral infestation: 4...Nxe5 5.d4 Nc6 6.d5 Bb4! 7.dxc6 Nex4 8.Qd4 Qe7 seems to trick more than treat!|
I think I'll play around with this anyway. Sometimes it's better to play a fun opening. That's why we play chess right? For fun. Well maybe I'll have a different opinion of how "fun" this gambit is after I get slaughtered.
|Oct-31-05|| ||soberknight: <underrated> It is not the responsibility of this site to cover every possible chess concept. Its main function is, of course, to compile an easily searchable database of games - and you won't find that on Wikipedia, which by the way offers very little detail about any of its subjects.|
|Oct-31-05|| ||Swapmeet: Minchev has a knack for playing against opponents that make this opening look good. Black played very poor and purely reactionary chess.|
|Nov-01-05|| ||pkendal: <visceral infestation:> what does black then have after 9. Be3 with g7 hanging?|
|Jan-16-09|| ||WhiteRook48: wow, it's another "back rank" mate... except that the king's not on g8.|
|May-11-09|| ||WhiteRook48: like the Chicago Gambit?|
|Aug-24-12|| ||Conrad93: This gambit fails after 5...Ng6.
After that white is just down a knight for no good reason.
