Jan-28-05  InspiredByMorphy: 9.Nxg5! leaves black scrambling to recover. 13. ...Qg6 would have continued the game but black would still be down two pawns with an exposed king. Another great game by Greco.
Aug-27-05  chesskoff: <<InspiredByMorphy: 13. ...Qg6 would have continued the game...> 13. ...Qg6 would result in the immediate 14. Qf6#; 13. ...Kxg8 would be the best continuation. The most white could do at that point is to trap the rook with 14. Bf6 and the material would be about equal.
Aug-27-05  sneaky pete: <chesskoff> Maybe after 13... Qg6 14.Qf6# black might still try 14... Qxf6.
Aug-28-05  chesskoff: <sneaky pete> Can't say that saw that coming. Maybe thats why they call you Sneaky Pete...
Sep-27-07  wolfmaster: It all began with 8...g5?.
Aug-06-08  RoyalFlush: Can't black play 10.. Kd7 ?
Sep-29-17  sneaky pete: 10... Kd7 see Greco vs NN, 1620
Sep-29-17  sneaky pete: Or this one Greco vs NN, 1620
Nov-04-17  obi4914: Can someone help explain why not 11. ...Qg7?

  saffuna: I think 12. Bxg8 and any re-capture loses.
Nov-05-17  sneaky pete: Yes, but who loses? After 11... Qg7 12.Bxg8 Kxg8

the black King is safer on g8 than he was on f8 and white's attack Bishop has disappeared. I doubt if white still has any advantage.

Maybe 11.Bxg5 .. was premature. I don't say that Greco was a patzer, but today every Roman schoolboy knows that after 10... Kf8 white should play 11.f4 ..

involving Rf1 in the attack.
