|Feb-08-05|| ||InspiredByMorphy: 12. ...d6 would have freed blacks bishop giving a better game than 12. ...c6 did. Nice queen trap by Greco. That knight bobbed and weaved. |
|Feb-08-05|| ||Backward Development: If i was on the black side, I probably would have been wondering, "hmm...where's that knight going?" then, tada! |
|Aug-14-05|| ||SEMENELIN: NN should have realized that he/she had a bad opening for the queen. I think this rule apply to all pieces. For example a knight or a bishop or a torre.|
|Aug-14-05|| ||sharpnova: is a torre means tower.. by which you really mean rook?|
|Aug-15-05|| ||SEMENELIN: <sharpnova> korekek!!!|
|Aug-15-05|| ||IT4LICO: "Torre" is the italian word for "rook"...|
|Aug-15-05|| ||Achilles: this was really bad I seen many old games compared to the modern games more accurate precisely!!!|
|Oct-20-05|| ||DeepBlade: Well black has many ''holes'' in its pawn structure, and its basic to move the Knight to pawnholes. But it takes a lot of brain to figure out a Knight tour to f5, especially with the beginner rule; don't move the same piece all the time.|
If you look at the position after the 14th move, Black's position makes me cry, 2 Knights on the rim, a bad Bishop, the Rook on f8 sleeping, and a cornered King. Im not talking about its pawn structure because its a disaster. The center is dominated by White, and Black tries a hopeless attack. Greco finishes with a funny Knight tour, and the Queen has no place to go.
|Jun-29-06|| ||al wazir: It's hard to believe this wasn't a composed game. As late as move 14 black had winning chances: 14...Ng3! If 15. hxg3 then 15...fxg3, with mate or loss of the ♕ (the *white* ♕!) to follow.|
|Jun-29-06|| ||al wazir: To elaborate on my previous comment: After 14...Ng3 15. hxg3 (if 15. Nxf7+ then 15...Kg7, postponing the inevitable) fxg3 16. Qh5 Qxh5 is the only way white can avoid mate. If white moves his ♕ rather than taking the ♘, e.g. 15. Qf3, then 15...Nxf1, and black is an exchange up.|
|Jun-30-06|| ||Cyphelium: <al wazir> I think white gets good compensation for the exchange after 14.- ♘g3 15. ♕e1 ♘xf1 16. ♕xh4 gxh4 17. ♗xf4.|
|Apr-20-17|| ||Yigor: It's similar to 2 previous #26-27 games/compositions. Here NN makes an other inaccuracy 5...Nf6?! The immediate 6. e5! seems to be better than 6. d4 chosen by Greco.|
