Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-29-04  Knight13: Maybe 9... Nxg1 is better.
Jan-31-05  Jaymthegenius: How does black loose? 2...Nf6! should win! and why not 3...d5 Black would win like this
Feb-02-05  Milo: Knight13: 9...Nxg1 doesn't help, sadly.
Feb-25-06  McCool: 10. Bxe7 maybe?
Dec-22-06  rover: This is a nice motif that comes up fairly often. White wants to win a piece with the pin but 10.Bd2 Nd5 defends. So he prepares it with a3.
Jul-27-11  DrMAL: Earliest Vienna Gambit example in the CG database. Some moves like 7...Nxd4 weren't so hot but NN was only 128 years old, inexperienced. He did better a few hundred years later against WCs like Alekhine with only the small odds of a blindfold simul.

Personally, against Greco I would not have resigned here.
