Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-10-05  Bisontin: It's an obvious fake. JJR died on july 2nd 1778 ! Von Conti must be Prince of Conti.
Aug-24-05  sneaky pete: Estrin: attributed to Rousseau, played against Prince Conti, Mont Louis, 1759.
Jun-08-06  aragorn69: Edward Winter, following H.J.M. Murray's conclusions dating back to 1908 (!), confirms that it is a fake. In fact, the game was probably played much earlier by a certain Busnardo, a contemporary of Ruy Lopez's or Greco's.

See C.N.4401:

Jun-08-06  aragorn69: Irving Chernev (attributing errouneously the game to Rousseau) gave the conclusion as: 16 f6 Qxg8 17 Bh6+ Qg7 18 Bxg7+ Kg8 19 Qe8 mate.

Feb-03-07  Sydro: 16...Qaxf6 is a winning defense for black.
Feb-03-07  sneaky pete: Uncle petes's believe it or not:

In a little known game Edgar Allan Poe vs Count Amontillado, Mount Usher, 1849, white improved with 11.f4 .. and went on to win quickly (11... gxh4 12.fxe5+ Kg7 13.Rf7+ Qxf7 14.Qxf7+ Kh6 15.Qf8+ Kg6 16.Bf7+ Kg5 17.g3 hxg3 18.Qg7+ Kf4 19.Qxg3+ Kxe4 20.Nd2+ Kf5 21.Rf1#).

  dernier loup de T: Congratulations and warms thanks for your splendid gift (and for your knowledge of Poe's tales), Sneaky Pete,the more Poe is famous for praising chess, lol!!!
Apr-08-17  Yigor: 7...Nf6, played in 2 previous games Polerio-Lorenzo and Saduleto-Polerio, is better than 7...f6?!
Apr-12-17  Yigor: ChessOK evluations: 6. Bg5 (+0.18) f6?!(+0.60) 7. Bh4?! (+0.29; Bc1 and Be3 are better) g5 8. Nxg5 (+0.11; Bg3 is better) fxg5 9. Qh5+ (forced move).

PSCC: 2Ee (KP) --> 2Ee1C (Giuoco Piano: main line) --> 2Ee1Cd --> 2DEe1Cd (Center Holding variation with d6)

Apr-12-17  Yigor: NN should win this game, especially after Busnardo's blunder 13. f5. Indeed 13...dxc3+ is evaluated at -8.14 (Stockfish, depth = 32).
