Nov-11-04  Bobak Zahmat: Super play by black. But could't white save the game after capturing the black queen?

  akiba82: <Bobak Zahmat> Yes, simply 18 Qg4, instead of 18 Qh8??, refutes the combination. If 18 Qe1?? then 18... Rh2+ 19. Kh2 Rh8+ wins for Black.
Premium Chessgames Member
  akiba82: Still, a nice swindle by Black who was lost after twelve moves. What does NZL championship refer to? Perhaps it was a five minute game or something.

  acirce: <akiba82> NZL = New Zealand.
Nov-11-04  Hinchliffe: <acirce> Could you help me out please? After an opening what do the numbers refer to?In this case(C50) Please, time permittingof course, could you unravel this mystery? Thanks Ulf.
Premium Chessgames Member
  akiba82: <acirce> Thanks, I guess the standard of play wasn't all that high in New Zealand in 1911, if that was a game from their national championship!
Premium Chessgames Member
  acirce: Hi <Hinchliffe>, there is a code system (ECO) to name different openings and lines of openings like that. In this case I think C50 stands for the initial moves 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4
Nov-12-04  Hinchliffe: <acirce> Thanks Ulf.Hope life is sweet.

  cu8sfan: <Hinchliffe> To complete <acirce>'s explanation: ECO is an abbreviation and stands for Encyclopedia of Chess Openings.
Nov-13-04  Hinchliffe: <cu8sfan> Thanks friend. Hope your ball club has a great season.
Oct-26-05  geaux82: I doesn't beleive in this game of 1911. Is lesson or such kinds of mate-pattern inventions? Some proof requires this one. Because Championship round?? and White is so stupid, with the Black idiot sitting like a dunce from 6...Bc5 in predetermination. No, this must be invention.

  fm avari viraf: The text move 18.Qxh8?? is a blunder. Simply 18.Qg4 wins as after ...Rxh2+ 19.Kxh2 Rh8+ 20.Qh3
