|Oct-11-04|| ||acirce: No, 3..f6 would be bad. 4..d5! instead of the game move would have given Black a playable, although not terribly good, position due to White's premature Qf3 and e5. Not sure what the point is in annotating games like this but.. :) |
|Oct-11-04|| ||mack: So... this game IS going to get removed, right? |
|Oct-11-04|| ||offramp: <acirce> You are right about 4...d5! It is hard to find a clear advantage after that:|
4...d5 5.♗f1 ♘g4 6.d4 c5 7.c3 ♘c6 8.h3 cxd4 9.cxd4 ♕b6 10.♘e2 ♘b4 11.♘a3=
I like this line because black makes use of both rook's pawns.
|Oct-11-04|| ||Knight13: Then I guess 3... e6 was better, huh? |
|May-11-05|| ||Abaduba: The thematic thrusts 1. ...h5! and 2. ...a5! force White's pieces to develop into the center, while Black can play on the edges of the board. White's position suffers from too much space and central control, and his pieces' free movement spells disaster. Only a cheap mating trick prevented Black's advanced idea from appearing in all of its anti-positional glory.|
|May-11-05|| ||TheAlchemist: How about this: in a recent tournament (90+30) I played with a friend, and we started the game with 1.a4 h5 2.h4 a5 and then we played "seriously" (we were still chuckling a bit, as were the players who played on boards beside us, but who cares).|

|Jul-27-05|| ||Averageguy: A true masterpiece.|
|Oct-01-05|| ||THE pawn: This game showed flawless endgame technique from both players.|
|Oct-01-05|| ||BishopBerkeley: This opening is not from the Romantic School: it is from the Cro-Magnon School.|
I was confused at first about why he Wall didn't play 5.Qxf7# instead of 5.Bxf7#, but obviously it's because he wants to retain the pressure on the Black Knight at e4.
(There's a little of the Cro-Magnon in all of us, you see :)
(: ♗ Bishop Berkeley ♗ :)
|Oct-02-05|| ||THE pawn: Bridge man wasn't strong enough to break the wall, so he went back to his favorite game: bridge.|
|Nov-26-05|| ||Chopin: Bridgemen must have been smoking something before the match.|
|Jan-02-06|| ||DeepBlade: Bridgemen gave 2 move odds and sacrificed one Knight! I dont understand why you dont like this game! This is the ''Bridgemen Immortal''!|
|Apr-17-06|| ||Rajiv Herman Kramer: Stupid Bridgy|
|Feb-21-08|| ||D.Observer: I once played chess with a classmate. With the white pieces, the game went 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 a6 4. Ba4 b5 5. Bb3 d6 6. O-O Bg4 7. Nc3 Qf6 8. Nd5 Qd8 9. h3 Bh5 10. d4 exd4 11. Qd3 Bxf3 12. Qxf3 g6 13. Nb6 and black resigned.
Here's the final position: |

|Feb-21-08|| ||IT4L1CO: D.Observer, what abaut 13. ..;Ne5 ?...|
|Feb-22-08|| ||D.Observer: IT4L1CO, my opponent never considered ♘e5 , although that can save the game. He resigned because he has to choose between the two: lose his ♖ or be a victim of the scholar's mate.|
|Dec-24-08|| ||WhiteRook48: funny checkmate|
|Dec-27-08|| ||WhiteRook48: hilarious checkmate. Hadn't heard of this. I think Bill Wall's the first guy who plays Bxf7# instead of Qxf7# for Scholar's Mate.
-White♖ on h1.
P.S. Us Rooks like being lazy. We're in the corner so can't help it anyway.
|Feb-16-09|| ||whiteshark: Isn't <...a5/...h5> allowed as one move? Maybe the missing tempo!|
|Mar-18-09|| ||TheTamale: "Hey, I just whooped some beginner with the Scholar's Mate! Better send this sucker into chessgames.com pronto!"|
|Apr-20-09|| ||WhiteRook48: even NN is better than this!|
|Feb-01-11|| ||rich187113: 3.e6 looks better|
|Feb-08-11|| ||Sem: Sorry, but this isn't worth preserving.|
|Nov-14-11|| ||AnalyzeThis: Well, at least black didn't play 4....Ng8.|
