Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-15-04  Saruman: 9.-Ke7 is a quite a move! The threat of cxb7+ is difficult to meet.
Nov-16-04  notsodeepthought: Nice pun, given how white nailed his opponent in this game. Incidentally, the rumor that the businessman Armand Hammer was named after the Arm and Hammer company (baking soda producers) is probably unfounded - but he did try to buy the company at one point...
Nov-16-04  Catfriend: insane game...
Nov-16-04  marekg248: Is this the same Blackmar that lost twice to Lasker and once to Hodges in 1892? It would be like, say, Botvinnik played with Kramnik. Not that it was impossible, but there are no games of Blackmar between 1826-1884 in the database. Great game, I thought Blackmar's gambit was first used much later.

  Willem Wallekers: marek, have a look at Armand Edward Blackmar
Nov-16-04  Marvol: Does that mean that 7. ... c6 is the "losing move"? Because that allows to set the trap of the discovered check with the pawn.
Nov-16-04  bpdoc: Could Lapeyre not have saved himself with 16...e3? This threatens 17...Qxd2 and a host of trouble for white, or if 16 Kxe3, then ...Qc5, winning the b5 bishop and simultaneously protecting the b8 knight. Granted, this leaves black less developed and down an exchange, but it also leaves the white king exposed, with white's queen buried in a corner, no?

  kevin86: Isn't the opening called the Blackmar Gambit?

Here we have a stunning queen sac-her majesty is quickly reborn-and a vicious attack follows. Black's king is chased to die-in the middle of the board.

Nov-16-04  marekg248: Thanks Willem, I haven't noted the kibitzes earlier, so it seems the game was played in 1881. <kevin> It is Blackmar gambit, but it's also Queen's pawn game:) Like this game Falkbeer vs NN, 1847 is Goring's gambit, but for some strange reason it's King's pawn game (isn't it Scotch game?!).

  Willem Wallekers: <7. ... c6 is the "losing move"? > maybe 3 ... exf3 is the losing move, modern opening theory "dictates" 3 ... e5.
Nov-16-04  Shadout Mapes: <bpdoc> I definitly wouldn't bet that black could save himself, white is fully developed with connected rooks, and black is mostly stuck on the back rank. 16...e3 17.Kxe3 Qc5+ 18.Kf3 Qxb5 19.Rab1 wins the piece back anyways.
Nov-16-04  Saruman: <bpdoc>That would be a correct series of moves except that white wins with 17.Qxa7+ Kf6 (-Kf8?/Kd8? Qxb8+ or Kd6? Qxb8+) 18.Rhf1+ Ke5 (Kg6?? Bd3+) 19.Qxb8+ wins easily.

  kevin86: <marekg248>The Goring gambit is also a variation on the Danish-so it can be called "Danish Scotch-a strange drink"
Mar-08-05  aw1988: A typical game of chess from 1826- purely romantic, the kind I used to play as a child before I later realized you actually have to play soundly. :P

  chessgames.com: <A typical game of chess from 1826- purely romantic> True enough, although a researcher contacted us and informed that 1882 is probably much closer to the truth.
Feb-08-07  who: The computer thinks that 8...Qa5 was the losing move - which makes sense it just developes a white piece and gets nothing in return. The correct move was 8...bxc6 9.Nxc6 Qh4+! 10.Kf1 Qf6+ 11.Kg1 Bd7

  Wolfgang01: Hello chessgames.com: Look for your descriptions of the players in your database. There must have been 2 players named Armand Edward Blackmar. The 1st was already dead in 1892!!
Jun-07-08  derek.mourad: i believe willem wallekers is correct e5 wins
Sep-20-08  just a kid: Awesome game!
