Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-07-06  HoopDreams: the grob beaten with the "fritz" opening, if i am correct
Dec-04-06  schattke: Interesting game, could have gone many other directions for white at several junctures.

31 Kf1 could have been 31 Bd2

Jan-21-08  Dr. J: 30 Bg7+ is an immediate win for White
Oct-08-09  holy tramp: Good call, Dr.J... You know it is odd that C. Bloodgood played the Grob nearly exclusively (and almost always won with it) yet not one opponent in the database accepted the Fritz Gambit on him. This made me think the Grob was only a cheap novelty, that the Gambit Accepted was its Achilles Heel. And so here it is accepted and white loses as expected. However, you Doc have shown that white had the game won, just missed the kill. I shall call this the Return of the Grob!

  Hanada: <holy tramp>

That's a pretty big conclusion to draw from a handful of games. You might want to run it through a chess engine.

Also, playing a counter like this against the Grob is not such a bad idea in practical terms because they are trying to surprise and confuse by using the Grob in the first place. It's kind of a nice "turn of the tables".

Mar-14-12  soberknight: 29.? could be a puzzle.
Nov-16-12  Conrad93: Hanada, the gambit by black is proven to refute the gambit.

  FSR: <Phony Benoni> I thought about that too. I notice that <White Wedding> was used as a pun last year.

Houdini 3 thinks that Black is slightly better (-0.10) after 6...e5 7.Qa4 Be6. However, it gives Black a much larger advantage (-0.66) after 3...c6 4.Qb3 Nf6 5.Qxb7 Nbd7.
