|Apr-07-06|| ||Whitehat1963: This is TOO funny!!!|
|Jun-30-07|| ||Jake Robertson: Dangerman got manhandled, it was slaughter, did dangerman ever get a leg up?|
|Jun-30-07|| ||al wazir: Doesn't 38...Ka8 win for black?|
|Jun-30-07|| ||ganstaman: I hate games like this -- they make me think I can play the Grob and not lose, and I can hardly resist the temptation!|
|Jun-30-07|| ||al wazir: No, it doesn't: 38...Ka8 39. Qxc7/Rxc7 Qg1+ 40. Bf1+!|
|Jun-30-07|| ||Wolfgang01: Mates 41. Qe7# not one move earlier? Or was white ordered to improve the selling of stamps?? (lol)|
|Jun-30-07|| ||patzerboy: He could have mated earlier also with 40. Rc8+, forcing RxR, then Qb7#.|
There is a rather cute helpmate (Black has to cooperate) with 37.Ra8+ Nxa8 (this is where Black helps) 38.Rxa8+ Qb8 39. Ba6+ (this is the cute part) Kd8 40.Rxb8#.
Of course, Black will play 37...Kb7 instead. That's why 37.Ba6+ was correct in the game.
|Jun-30-07|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: <Wolfgang01> Lol... Good one! :)|

|Jun-30-07|| ||outplayer: There must be a better move than 24...h6; maybe 24...Kc7 with idea Ra8 could be a better option.|
|Jun-30-07|| ||Cactus: Is Dangerman his real name?
|Jun-30-07|| ||kevin86: Great! Everyone is talking about the WEDDING,but no body is giving DANGERMAN any respect-I guess he is out of his FIELD,lol.|
Nice little mating combination-a variation on the windmill.
|Jun-30-07|| ||playground player: Why does the Grob win so often, and why don't more White players use it?|
|Jun-30-07|| ||Giearth: Mr Dangerman doesn't seem to be existed. "Dangerman" is probably his alias...|
|Jun-30-07|| ||gBizzle: 41. Qe7 was mate but weddings mate looked cooler|
|Jun-30-07|| ||fm avari viraf: Instead of the text, 40.Rc8+ Rxc8 & 41.Qb7# & he can relish his Wedding Cake.|
|Jun-30-07|| ||vajeer: i think black is better of by 30...Ke8|
|Jan-21-08|| ||whiteshark: <41.Qe7> isn't mate! :D|

In the majority of cases there were only bloody patzers on the black side.
|Jan-08-09|| ||OBIT: No doubt the Grob achieves good results statistically because it works well as a surprise weapon, especially against players who have never seen it and can't figure out a good reaction over the board. Still, the opening choice is not the reason Black lost this game, as he has a fine position after move 20, with a pawn advantage and a nice pawn formation that cuts off the White bishop.|
Unfortunately, then Black proceeds with an insipid knight maneuver, followed by a pointless attempt to open up the kingside. Clearly, if he had directed play toward the queenside, he would have had the better game. In fact, I think even the immediate pawn thrust 21...a5!? would have worked out well. After 22. Na2 or 22. Nc2, Black can continue with ...Kc7 and ...Ra8, and he gets the initiative on the queenside, not his opponent.
Oh, well... I suppose it was nice to see the Wedding night ending with mate.
