Nov-19-04  Jaymthegenius: What a sweet game! Greco sure knew how to force mate pretty well! There have been games in which I have failed to see mate in 2 and even 1!!! I am not familiar with the giuco piano, but Greco was clearly a complete expert on it.
Apr-17-06  SJP: 17...Kc5 18. b4+ Kc4 19. a4 (threat 20. Qb5+ Kb3 21. Ra3+ Kc2 22. Qe2#) c6 20. Qh5 (threat 21. Qe2+ Kb3 22. Ra3#) 1-0
Apr-17-06  SJP: If 19...Nc6, 20. Qh5 Nd4 21. cxd4 Kxd4 22. Qd5#, again mating on the 22nd move.
Sep-27-07  wolfmaster: What's the continuation after 15...Ke8? I don't see anything that's completely convincing.
Jan-28-08  wolfmaster: Idiot me, 15...Ke8 is illegal!
Feb-16-18  RKnight: <wolfmaster> should have asked "What's the continuation after 15..Kd8?" NN averts disaster, but has an inferior cramped position with rather even material (N for 3P's).
