Nov-20-07  micartouse: 7 ... cxd2+ is an opening trap. The pawn is poisoned and Black comes under a furious attack and White already has a probably decisive advantage even if he plays 11 ... 0-0.

  perfidious: The variation 5.Nxd4 exd4 6.e5 was a speciality of Joseph L Shipman, though his results in other tries with the line that I witnessed in the mid 1980s were rather less successful than this spectacular attack, when his strong opponents did not incautiously snatch the pawn but opted for the safety of 7....Qxf6, strong drawing tendency though it has.

I've submitted a correction for this game, because it definitely was not Walter Shipman playing White.

Dec-29-12  Strongest Force: I have
lost to Walter and Joe but I could kill Judit. :S
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <SF> Never got to play Judy, and only a short draw against Walter. Different story with Joe, however.

There's 9...c6!? as in J D Tisdall vs R Ervin, 1975, but even that's very dangerous for Black.

Jan-07-13  morfishine: Shipman grills Weber with a smoking attack
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <morfishine> Good idea! I just nominated the game for GOTD as <Weber Grill>, but you can have the glory if it makes it. :-)
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: Actually, maybe <Weber Grilled> would be better. You can submit that if you like.
Jan-07-13  morfishine: <FSR> Thanks, I didn't give it too much hope; many of our foreign members might not get it; UR right though, if anything <Weber Grilled> is better
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <morfishine> I disagree; many puns are America-specific and/or quite obscure. I think you should submit <Weber Grilled> and I predict they will use it. And if they don't, it's not as though you've lost anything, apart from a minute of your time. Give it a shot!
