Aug-25-12  tmcconnell: What about the continuation 18.Nxf7? After 18... Kxf7 19.Qh7+ what could black do?
Aug-25-12  Cemoblanca: <tmcconnell: What about the continuation 18.Nxf7? After 18... Kxf7 19.Qh7+ what could black do?> 18.Nxf7!? Qf6! (if 18...Kxf7?? then there is a bitter bitter end after 19.Qh7+ Kf6 20.f4+! Rg8 21.e4 Rg7 22.fxg5+ Kxg5 23.Qxg7+ Kh5 24.g4+ Kh4 25.Qxh6+ Kxg4 26.h3#) 19.f4+! Qxf7 20.fxg5 Qh7 21.g6 Qg7 22.Rad1! Ne5 23.Bxe5 Qxe5 24.Rf7! & the other Rook follows soon (Rdf1), etc.
Aug-25-12  Cemoblanca: I think "Attack With Tympani & Trumpets" wouldn't be bad, either (instead of Robert De Niro's!!! ;0)

  Once: Is h6/ g5 / 0-0 the chess equivalent of Russian roulette?
Aug-25-12  Cemoblanca: <Once> Indeed! That plan was a utter suicide! LOL!

  Abdel Irada: <Once>: This may surprise you, but in some variations of the Borg Defense (Borg = Grob reversed), that is precisely what Black often does. However, in those positions, White isn't typically well placed to open lines as in this game. (In fact, I have enjoyed substantial success against my computer chess program with exactly such lines — although it should be noted that finding effective means of attacking without a clear target is not among silicon's greatest inherent strengths.)

On the other hand, it often proves that neither king is safe on the kingside in Grob/Borg formations, which often find both players castling long or not at all.

Aug-25-12  tivrfoa: <Once: Is h6/ g5 / 0-0 the chess equivalent of Russian roulette?> Very nice point <Once> I'll never play this way anymore. xD
