|Oct-24-03|| ||Eggman: Nice, though 15.Rd1 was surely unnecessary. After 15.Qd1, or 15.Bxf7+ followed by 16.Qd1, can White, despite abysmal development, still put up a fight?|
BTW, this Kahn was not the famous Sultan Kahn.
|Oct-25-03|| ||drukenknight: he can put up a fight, but you have to choose between those two moves, Eggman. That is really what it comes down to in chess. Sometimes the options are quite obvious, but there can only be one best move.|
what do you think?
|Oct-25-03|| ||Benzol: <Eggman> As this game was played in Germany in 1916 it's not Sultan Khan. It might be Victor Khan but I'm not sure.|
BTW 15.Qd1 is possible but after 15...Bxd5 Black has the better of it.
If 15.Bxf7+ Ke7 and White still has to deal with the threat on the f1 rook.
|Oct-25-03|| ||drukenknight: you are on the right track 15 Bxf7 first then Qd1 |
|Sep-05-07|| ||Rubenus: <Benzol> No, it was Genghis. :)|
|Mar-16-12|| ||GrahamClayton: White is forced to accept the knight sacrifice, due to 14.♗xb7 ♘g3+ 15.♔g2 ♘xf1 16.♔xf1 ♕xh2, with mate to follow.|
|Mar-16-12|| ||King Death: I think White in this game was co author of The Art Of The Checkmate with someone named Renaud but my tired old memory isn't sure. The one sure thing is that Kahn got done to a turn after neglecting his development.|
|Mar-16-12|| ||Phony Benoni: <King Death> That would be Georges Renaud, like Kahn a former French champion. They teamed up on several books after World War II. The Art of the Checkmate was originally published in French in 1947, with an English translation in 1953.|
|Jun-01-15|| ||hadi706: for white instead 8.e5?
8.d3 and 9.Nd2
