|Jul-29-08|| ||Whitehat1963: I wish I had been inside Kasparov's head when he watched Becker play 2. Qh5. It must have sounded something like:|
Ahhh hahahahahahahahahahahahah! What does this idiot take me for? Now, just for that, I'm going to slaughter him in under 20 moves. Come on, fish, serve me up another lob so I can smash it down your throat!
|Jul-29-08|| ||Whitehat1963: Kasparov could have prolonged the torture and humiliation via 17...Bxe2+ 18. Ke1 Bc4+ 19. Kd1 Bxb3+ 20. axb3. But now what's the fastest win?|
|Sep-26-08|| ||AnalyzeThis: In the game's final position, 18...Bf5 mate looks pretty good.|
|Sep-26-08|| ||Bobsterman3000: Wow, the Nakamura attack didn't go too far in this one...|
|Dec-31-08|| ||blacksburg: Qh5,f3,c3? not good, boris becker. violates basic opening principles. even george costanza knows this rule. not good at all, boris becker.|
|Mar-14-09|| ||Augalv: I just played over the game between W. Harrelson and G. Kasparov to find that Boris played 2.Qh5!?. The very same opening chosen by Woody Harreslon against the world champion.|
|Mar-14-09|| ||AnalyzeThis: What's actually a surprisingly decent opening is 1. e4 c6 2. Bc4 d5 3. Bb3 dxe4 4. Qh5|
|Apr-17-09|| ||akapovsky: 1.e4 e5 2.Qh5 Nf6 3.Qxe5 Be7 looks ok for black isn't it.|
|May-18-09|| ||True2theGame: This was more poor play for white than brilliance on behalf of black. Three consecutive questionable Queen moves in the opening. The reason Nakamura can get away with stuff like that is because at 2700+ he can still out tactic master stregnth players, and at the very least regain his lost tempi on lesser GM's. Highly illadvised opening!|
|May-18-09|| ||AnalyzeThis: Really? I thought that after 1. e4 e5 2. Qh5, Kasparov was going to play 2...Ke7, allowing 3. Qxe5 mate.|
Guess Kasparov got lucky this time.
|Jan-16-10|| ||rich187113: When I face this opening as black 1.e4 e5 2.Qh5 I much prefer to play the unorthodox Bd6?! Nc6 is the most common responce but I do not like it because white could play Bb5 to attack it and I prefer to keep my knight.|
|Jun-23-10|| ||rich187113: I don't understand 3.Qf3 though.|
|Jul-26-10|| ||nidhishnambiar: it's so funny....I was wondering how Kasparov did it in 18 moves, then when I saw Qh5 I understood everything....poor Becker|
|Feb-01-11|| ||Penguincw: I wonder what would happen if Kasparov played tennis against Becker.|
|May-03-11|| ||IRONCASTLEVINAY: MATCH POINT|
|Dec-05-11|| ||kevin86: Just in time-Bf5# is immediate mate-and I think the champ won't miss it.|
|Dec-05-11|| ||Diademas: This brings back memories...
1. e4 e5 2. Qh5 was my preferd (only) opening until I turned 10. I had a solid pluss score against the other kids in the street.
|Dec-05-11|| ||play2win: Kasparov is merciless|
|Dec-06-11|| ||PaulLovric: LOL the old, "King Pawn Game: with Wayward Queen Attack"|
|Apr-01-12|| ||profK: Boom Boom got bounced but who else would have played 2.Qh5 against Kasparov???|
|Jun-06-12|| ||andyatchess: why not 11. exd5?|
|Apr-11-13|| ||waustad: I face openings like this in the bar all of the time, though I usually play the Sicilian so they are a little confused trying their fools mate stuff on me. I've stashed sets in several bars around town so who knows when I'll drop in for a game. I always play black unless I know the opponent or he (women almost never play in the bar, sadly) grabs 2 pawns and randomizes.|
|Apr-17-13|| ||Conrad93: 3. Qf3 makes no sense...|
|Oct-20-13|| ||Bob Loblaw: Well, Boris knows how the queen moves. When he learns how to to move the rest of the men he may be a formidable force.|
|May-01-14|| ||GumboGambit: < profK: Boom Boom got bounced but who else would have played 2.Qh5 against Kasparov???>|
