|Jan-07-06|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: One of earliest queen traps, i suppose :)|

No reason to resign, Mr. de Beaurevoir.
11. ...♕g4+ 12.♗e2 ♕g6 13.♖f1 ♗g7 14.♖f5 ♗xh8 15.♖g5 advantageous for white
11... ♕g4+ 12. ♗e2 ♕xg2 13. ♖f1 ♗g7 14. ♖f2 ♕g1+ 15. ♖f1 ♕g2 16. ♖f2 ♕g6 17. ♖f5 ♗xh8 18. ♖g5 ♗g7 19. ♖xg6 drawish
|Jan-07-06|| ||radu stancu: As Georgie said, it's not a black win here. And if white had played 11. Be2 he would have had a winning position.|
|Jan-08-06|| ||Georgie Dubb: <radu stancu> I don’t see a winning position for white after 12. Be2. |
Black can obtain a draw by repetition with
12. ♗e2 ♕xg2 13.♖f1 ♗g7 14.♖f2 ♕g1+ 15.♖f1 ♕g2 16.♖f2 ♕g1+ 17.♖f1 ♕g2 ½–½
It seems white can only avoid this by playing
13.♖e1 ♗g7 14.♕xg7 ♕xg7 which should make black feel good.
This game ended when it started to become quite funny, too bad.
|Jan-08-06|| ||radu stancu: <Georgie Dubb> That's because you're right, there isn't one. I was talking about 11.Be2, not 12.Be2. Cheers. :)|
|Jul-26-09|| ||just a kid: I think White died at the board.|
|Aug-05-09|| ||Yodaman: White resigned while up a rook? He could have event taken a knight with his queen and only be down 1 point! I wouldn't resign so early in a game with a 5 point lead.|
|Sep-10-12|| ||Abdel Irada: After the text or even <radu stancu>'s improvement 11. ♗e2, the White queen isn't leaving h8 anytime soon. I haven't examined all the variations, but it seems to me that Black can castle and combine threats, eventually either winning the queen or mating, thanks to his having a queen in play while White doesn't.|
Ultimately, then, I think the outcome will be the same: "Au revoir, monsieur De Beaurevoir."
|Feb-08-13|| ||drleper: <Abdel Irada> Actually white's resources here are pretty amazing. 9...Bf8? is a blunder. A decent engine will show that 11.Be2 wins, while 11.d3 leads to a draw with best play.|
|Apr-17-13|| ||captdad12: Interesting game! Resignation surprised me.
I was expecting Be2 to block the queen.
