Feb-04-06  Mate Hunter: I think 8...Qxc4 wasn't a good move.
May-17-06  SJP: 8...Qxc4 seems ok to me; the mistake's 9...Qe6 in my book. 9...Bf8 is better.
May-17-06  SJP: This position actually occurred in a game I played a few years back:

Pinder - Bhogal
Walsall 2001

King's Gambit Accepted; Classical

1. e4 e5 2. f4 exf4 3. Nf3 g5 4. Bc4 Bg7 5. 0-0 Qe7 6. Nc3 c6 7. e5 Qc5+ 8. d4 Qxc4 9. Ne4 Bf8 10. Nfxg5 d5 11. b3 Qb4 12. c3 Qa5 13. Qh5 Nh6 14. Nd6+ Bxd6 15. exd6 Qxc3 16. Bxf4 Qxd4+ 17. Kh1 Qg7?! 18. Rae1+! Kf8 (not 18...Kd8 19. Nxf7+ Kd7 20. Re7#) 19. Ne6+! Bxe6 (not 19...fxe6 20. Bxh6+ Kg8 21. Qe8+ Qf8 22. Qxf8#) 20. Bxh6 1-0

Mar-22-07  MasterSavely: nice... sacrificed a bishop in the beginning then he gets his rook and and queen later on for a knight and rook so white lost knight+bishop+rook=11 points
black lost rook+queen=15
Oct-29-07  sneaky pete: Another odds game. White sacrificed Ra1 at move 0.
Jun-27-09  just a kid: The a1-rook may have moved to a0...
Jan-30-15  JimmyVermeer: The FEN is invalid. It says White could castle with the queen's rook but there is no queen's rook.
Jan-30-15  disasterion: <JimmyVermeer> It's usual in rook odds games to allow the side giving the odds to castle on both sides - so white can castle queen side by just moving the king from e1 to c1.
