|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.
|Oct-31-14|| ||Cheapo by the Dozen: This game looks like something out of the 19th Century.|
|Oct-31-14|| ||morfishine: <Cheapo by the Dozen> FWIW: Since this gambit originated in the 19th century, its only natural the resulting lines reflect that era|
|Oct-31-14|| ||jhelix70: <<This gambit fails after 5...Ng6.|
After that white is just down a knight for no good reason.>>
After 6. e5 Ng8 (if ...Qe7 7. Be3) 7. Bc4 white has some compensation surely...
|Oct-31-14|| ||Castleinthesky: This is my favorite "cheap-o" opening and I have won a number of 5-minute games on the ICC. If black plays it incorrectly, it gives white a crushing initiative. If black plays it correctly, well that's another matter...|
|Oct-31-14|| ||kevin86: Nice game...a gambit the reminds me of the 19th century.|
|Oct-31-14|| ||Shams: <jhelix70> <After 6. e5 Ng8 (if ...Qe7 7. Be3) 7. Bc4 white has some compensation surely.>|
For sure. It's my understanding that the refutation given by <visceral infestation> is best.
|Oct-31-14|| ||bcokugras: 18. I would prefer : Qxb8 Qxe3+|
|Oct-31-14|| ||Penguincw: < bcokugras: 18. I would prefer : Qxb8 Qxe3+ >|
Me too. After 19.Kc1, material is actually pretty balanced (white has a rook for bishop, knight and pawn), but is threatening both Qxc8 and Re1+, both of which will a piece.
