|Mar-22-07|| ||Whitehat1963: WOW! Is this double knight sac sound. I have a feeling it's not. What do the engines have to say?|
|Mar-22-07|| ||sneaky pete: I must be blind, I see no <double knight sac>. 20.Re1+ .. (to rob pawn d6 of its protection) is impressive. It looks like a forced win after 14... hxg5.|
|Mar-22-07|| ||Whitehat1963: You're right, <sneaky pete>. It's just one knight that gets sacrificed. It could nevertheless make for a good puzzle after 14. Ng5.|
|Feb-12-10|| ||Calli: <sneaky pete> any info on this game or its duplicate? G Nielsen vs A Van Der Linde, 1973|
|Feb-13-10|| ||sneaky pete: <calli> Very little. Bilguer (1916) has this game as played by the Nielsen brothers against Van der Linde, so 1875 must be right, and Gunnar, alas (I like that name for a gambiteer), must be wrong.|
The Nielsen brothers probably also played for Copenhagen in
Copenhagen vs Uppsala, 1875.
In that game 9... Bxc3 10.Qxc3 Be6 11.Rhe1 Bxc4 12.Qxc4 0-0 13.e5 Ne8 14.g4 Kh8 15.h4 f6 16.exf6(?) .. was played. Bilguer mentions a game (no year given) between Sörensen and Leffler where after 16.e6 .. white obtained a winning attack.
I can imagine the Nielsen brothers published analyses of their gambit, claiming advantage for white against every defence, and were challenged by Van der Linde to prove it.
|Feb-13-10|| ||Calli: Probably Govert Nielsen and Vilhelm who was his cousin and a known player. See Martin Møllers skakhistorie http://www.skakjournal.dk/16414025?...|
Isn't this a Göring Gambit? See, for instance, I Dolgov vs P Mikhailchuk, 1991
|Feb-13-10|| ||sneaky pete: <Calli> No, it's the Danish Gambit of course, although the position after move 7 might also arise from the Scottish Gambit and the Göring Gambit. Schlechter mentions this game on page 651 in the section on <Das Mittelgambit und die minder üblichen Fortsetzungen nach 1... e7-5> but in a note containing the Sörensen game, for a deviation on move 14 he also refers to a line on page 540, in the section on the Schotch Gambit with 4.c3 ..|
Schlechter on the Göring Gambit:
"Diese Angriffsweise, das nach seinem Erfinder benannte Göring-Gambit, steht den beiden übrigen gebräuchlichen wohl nach, weil Schwarz mit 4... dc 5.Lc4 Sf6! 6.Sc3: Lb4! sich erfolgreich verteidigen kann."
On the Danish Gambit he notes:
"Die Theorie dieser lebhaften Eröffnung ist von den Gebr. Nielsen, Sörensen und anderen in der <Nord. Skakt.> sehr gefordert worden."
|Feb-14-10|| ||Calli: Thanks for the Schlechter quotes. Afer 9 moves only this game is classified as a Danish at CG. http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches...|
|Jul-18-12|| ||Calli: It was both Nielsen brothers in a correspondence game. Sent correction slip.|
