Sep-11-04  Knight13: 16...Bh6 is a blunder. 16...Ne7 would be better to me.

  tpstar: <Knight13> Correct! This is a fine example of a gambit, where Black wins a Pawn at the expense of time, space and development. 1) 17. Re1+ Kf8? 18. Bxh6+ won immediately. How would you classify that tactic? 2) What should White play if 17 ... Kd7 instead? 3) What should White play if 17 ... Kd8 instead?
Sep-11-04  mack: Perhaps the blunder was playing Greco in the first place.
Sep-11-04  Calculoso: I like your avatar <Knight13>.
Sep-11-04  Knight13: <Caculoso> Thanks.
Apr-02-05  Jaymthegenius: 7.g3 is incorrect, just look at blacks advantages, with a ...d6 pawn set up should have won.
Aug-11-05  SEMENELIN: but to describe this chessplayer he is a bloody genius when it comes to sacrifices. really bloody!!!!! bloody sacrifices.
Oct-20-05  DeepBlade: Greco just builds an attack on the squares his opening pieces are covering, just look at the Bishop at c4 whole the game.
Apr-02-07  Skylark: <tpstar> 17. ... Kd7 is no better, if my glance at a board is correct: 18. Qd3+ Kc8 19. Be6+ and black has to give up his queen or get mated after 19. ... Nd7 20. Qxd7+. After 17. ... Kd8 18. Rxh6! Black can resign as well. Indeed it seems like 16. ... Bh6 is a blunder. But after 16. ... Ne7 17. Re1 white has so much pressure on black that it looks hard to see a good way for him to untie himself.
Apr-09-07  MasterSavely: <skylark> thank you your explaining it well.
Oct-04-07  wolfmaster: 7.Nc3 instead of 7.g3 seems to give White a more promising position.
Jan-28-08  wolfmaster: NN blown to bits.
