Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-12-04  InspiredByMorphy: Greco's 10.c3 is a great move.
Feb-10-05  Mate Hunter: Classical Greco style...
Mar-02-05  InspiredByMorphy: 9. ...f6 was the beginning of blacks downfall. 9. ...O-O was better.
Mar-07-05  Mate Hunter: 10...fxg5 leads to open the f-file and 11.Bxg5 starts the attack. 10.c3 was a great move, without that move black could play 11.Bxd4+.
Aug-31-05  organist: This game seems to have inspired Morphy as he won a game against Meek in 1855 where Meek decided to trap the knight directly by 7...f6.
Oct-20-05  DeepBlade: Greco suprises with the Bishop giving check which makes the king move into discovered check, and then launches a discovered attack on the Queen. Greco is an opening genius.
Nov-27-05  DeepBlade: I think the main reason people play KGA is the open file for the Rook on f.
Nov-27-05  KingG: <DeepBlade> And also to get a strong centre and a lead in development.
Nov-28-05  DeepBlade: True, I really enjoy KGA games.

I have many other games, but some are KGD so i didnt bother to post them. Most of my game are my custom made gambit (1.e4 e5 2.d4 exd4 3.Nf3 c5 4.c3 dxc3 5.Nxc3 ) I know its is played before, but i discovered after inventing it :D
