Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-13-05  who: This is clearly a mislabeled sac. 4...Qe7 sacrifices nothing.
Sep-13-05  who: I guess 10.Nxe7 Nxe4 11.Nd5 is better as it forces black to lose the right to castle, but I assume there is something better for white here.
Sep-13-05  who: On second thought that seems to win a pawn, so maybe that's good enough.
Oct-30-08  Toastman: 4...Qe7 sacrifices the knight on e4 temporarily.
I guess since the equalizing capture doesn't come for a few moves it qualifies.
Apr-14-14  RookFile: This game is a piece of genius by Kieseritsky. Everybody "knows" that 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nf6 3. Nxe5 Nxe4 is unplayable for black. Then Chess Life had some cutting edge analysis by Charles Hertan in the 1980's showing that it was playable. It came as a surprise to me to learn tonight that Kieseritsky had ventured this back in 1846!
