Oct-18-06  James Bowman: At 23.nf3+ Tompkins possible gives away a won game for what appears to be a simple blunder?
Oct-18-06  clint: <James Bowman><At 23.nf3+ Tompkins possible gives away a won game for what appears to be a simple blunder?>

Could you please explain what you mean?

Oct-18-06  Milo: If black plays a move like 17...Nxg4, it looks like he regains some material, perhaps enough to win. E.g. 17...Nxg4 17.gxh3? Ne3+
Oct-18-06  Milo: Actually 17...Bxg4 is probably better but w/e.
Oct-18-06  Runemaster: <clint> I think <James Bowman> meant 17...Nf3+. It looks like a bad mistake that loses the game.
Oct-18-06  clint: Thanks <Runemaster>, I see it now! what would the best move be for white?
After 17...Nxg4 18. Qd5
after 17..Bxg4 18. Qc1?
Oct-18-06  Runemaster: <clint> 17...Bxg4 18.Qc1 Qg6 looks good for Black, with the threat of ...Bh3 or Bf3.
Oct-19-06  clint: Thanks again! Sorry I'm a total patzer trying to work out the best play for white, but doing it at the office just looking at the website is not easy!

  Eric Schiller: Don't bust your brains. It was a game between two 15-year old scholastics players. His 15...e4! was a strong move.
Oct-28-06  48123: Better for White is...

6. Nxf7

Nov-09-06  Elroch: Actually 6. Nxf7 is considered unclear after 6. ...Kxf7 7.Qf3+ Ke6 8. Nc3 Ncb4 9. a3 Nxc2 10. Kd1 Nxa1 11. Nxd5.

6. d4 may be better

  Eric Schiller: <elroch> 6.d4, the Lolli, is much stronger. That's what I teach kids, though I show them the Fried Liver just for fun. 5...Nxd5? is simply a bad move.
