|May-04-08|| ||Whitehat1963: Perhaps an interesting late-in-the-week puzzle after 18...Ng7. But is the move sound? Is it, maybe, a "spoiler"?|
|Aug-15-08|| ||newzild: The Blackmar-Diemer is dangerous for the unprepared black player.|
|Aug-15-08|| ||ravel5184: Second!|
|Aug-15-08|| ||Alphastar: Very badly played by black though. 6. ..Bg4? just loses a tempo and 11. ..Bxc3? unnecessarily weakens the dark squares. It all just plays into white's hands.|
|Aug-15-08|| ||RoyalFlush: What happens after 19.. Kxf7?|
|Aug-15-08|| ||Once: 19. Rxf7 looks perfectly sound to me. If black takes the rook, it is mate in 5:|
19 ... Kxf7 20. Qxh7 Rf8 (other moves lead to similar mates) 21. Bxg6+ Kf6 22. Qh6 Nf5 23. g5#

A gruesome end.
One finish after 25. g5+ would be:
25. ... Kh5 26. Qxh7+ Kxg5 27. Qxg6+ Kh4 28. Qg4#

Black played much too passively here against the infamous BDG. Too many bishop moves for one thing.
|Aug-15-08|| ||whiteshark: Cane wasn't hardly able to play it.|
|Aug-15-08|| ||dabearsrock1010: Bxc3 is horrible|
|Aug-15-08|| ||fischerstein: Black's an amateur. this looks like the games in the park. The ones between hustlers and kids.|
|Aug-15-08|| ||kevin86: The B-D gambit is very dangerous for anyone! It's a delight to see any gambit today. I thought they bit the dust with the rising of the computer/precision age.|
Cane/Cain by another spelling is Kane;Kane Hodder is very "able" as Jason Voorhees. Also,there is/was a rock group called "BROTHER CANE"-who sang the theme song for Halloween VI-the Curse of Michael Myers.
|Aug-15-08|| ||Prugno: Cane is Italian for "dog" and is pronounced, like most of our words, exactly the way it is written :-) So nothing to do with the English pronounciation of "Cain".|
I saw Mr. Cane, who passed away a few years ago, at some OTB events: he was a first category player (i.e. around 1900), but was definitely aged well over 80 at the time this game was played, and clearly did not use engines to help with his correspondence games! So please don't be too harsh with his mistakes...
|Aug-15-08|| ||BipolarChessorder: Perhaps a better pun would be "Cane caned".|
|Oct-06-08|| ||whiteshark: Rock you like the Hurry Cane?|
|Aug-19-15|| ||fredthebear: <RoyalFlush: What happens after 19.. Kxf7?>|
20.Qxh7 is strong. Then White has Bxg6+ and Rf1+.
