Oct-09-05  sleepkid: greed and folly... greed and folly. black must have stood on his chair and danced after this one.
Oct-09-05  blackkangaroo: 10. Nc3 is surely better than c3. Attacking d6 and bringing on additional forces to hound Blacks King to submission.
Feb-28-06  eghagstrom: Sorry, tell me how 10. Nc3 attacks d6, please.
Apr-11-06  mjk: What is the rest of the story? Blindfold blitz? A 2100+ player is not going to get mated like this in regular play.
Apr-11-06  slavyi: 14.0-0 and white is winnig for sure. And he gave up the win just for a pawn. What a shame. He did such a great job (calculation) to win a piece; black's pieces are a mess - they are all over the board without any coordination, the king is far from safe and all that white has to do is to waste a move to bring his king into safety (I don't think it is a waste).
Apr-11-06  Chicago Chess Man: Why 16. Kg1???
Apr-11-06  Whitehat1963: Agree <slavyi>, even 15. Kd1 could have helped a lot.
Apr-11-06  Chicago Chess Man: I actually meant 15. Kf1???
Apr-11-06  RandomVisitor: 10.Bb3 would give white a small advantage.
Oct-11-06  syracrophy: With 14.0-0 White had a winning position
Oct-11-06  schnarre: <sleepkid> I would have too if I were playing Black!
Feb-22-07  Rubenus: White doesn't deserve to have a rating higher than 1300.

  sfm: <Whitehat1963:even 15. Kd1 could have helped a lot.> LOL! Right - a help-mate in two, vs. an easily won game...

I haven't heard of too many shes named Fernando. :-D

On a more serious note: Was his rating 2145 when this game was played? I suspect not infrequently displays current ratings with old games.

  FSR: <Abdel Irada> You are almost surely right about FQ's gender. As for the rating, this is White's only game in the database. This is what says on his player page:

Fernando Quiroz
Number of games in database: 1
Years covered: 2005
Last FIDE rating: 1993
Highest rating achieved in database: 2145

I'm guessing that this means that used FQ's 1993 FIDE rating of 2145 for this game, played in 2005. Hard to imagine anyone currently or formerly rated 2145 playing such a game unless he was drunk or senile.

Sep-21-12  Abdel Irada: <FSR>: You're right. I looked over his player page, and there's nothing there to suggest a rating discrepancy sufficient to explain this game.

I can only speculate: Since there is only one rated game, perhaps he played very little, and the 2145 was actually a provisional rating based on a few games played a decade previous by someone whose actual playing strength was far less. Otherwise, this game is really quite unaccountable.

Mar-27-15  DrGridlock: Game is notable as the only 21'st century example of a Black victory in the Fried Liver attack.
