Jul-20-09  tentsewang: I like the amazing trick by G. Salmon but i think his opponent had the game at the end. Why did his adversary gave up?
Jul-20-09  vonKrolock: The ♔ will move, and the white ♘ will take the black ♕ - this is called <"Knight Fork">
Jan-01-10  rustyrook: 7--dxe4 is an error. Better is 7--Bb4ch
if 8c3 then dxe. The difference is that black gets his King safe and gets an attack for his pawn.
