|Feb-08-05|| ||InspiredByMorphy: 14. ...Rxe7 would have kept the game going. Black was bent on a material advantage, ignoring the positional disadvantage. Nice rook sac by Greco. |
|Feb-08-05|| ||Zaius: 12...Ne5 would have also been preferable. |
|Apr-02-05|| ||Jaymthegenius: What a game by Greco! Now you see why I dont play symmetrical king pawn games as black, |
|Oct-20-05|| ||DeepBlade: Nice game by Greco, although I dont like this opening, and I cant cope with it, if someone takes one of my pair of Bishops or Knights.|
Back to the game.
Greco first gives an discovered check, followed by an double check, finished by a some kind of smothered mate but with the Queen, the Black King cant take the Knight, and is smothered by its own pieces. Kudos for Greco.
|Nov-15-05|| ||Averageguy: Wouldn't 14.Bxf7+ lead to a standard Greco's Mate?|
|Nov-26-05|| ||JYMMI: Averageguy, YOUR SUGESTION IS WRONG, BECAUSE BLACK WOULD PLAY 15_...Kh8 AND SO AVOID THE MATE.|
|Dec-17-05|| ||Averageguy: <JYMMI> My point is 14...Kh8 15.Qg6 hg (otherwise 16.Qh7#) 16.Qh5#. If you mean 14...Rxf7 then 15.Nxf7 or 15.Qxf7+ doestn't look any worse than what the position could've been if NN had played 14...Rxf7 in the actual game continuation.|
|Jan-15-06|| ||DeepBlade: <JYMMI> please press CAPS LOCK once, its between Shift and Tab, youre welcome.|
Two times doublecheck, quadruple check? :P
Too bad you cant triple check in Chess.
Im gonna place this in my profile, those are quality games out there
|Jan-15-06|| ||Whitehat1963: Yeah, I like this one, too!|
|Sep-27-07|| ||wolfmaster: <InspiredByMorphy> You mean 14...Rxf7?|
|Oct-31-13|| ||pricklyucheniya: so what about 12...Be6?|
