Feb-13-06  64 Squares: 1. Nf3 e5?!, odd choice by Lasker. But hey he won. Then again, it was NN.
Feb-14-06  CapablancaFan: What are we supposed to learn from this game? A master playing an amateur and toys with him. I mean, the NN king side is barely developed.Lol. Please go over Lasker-Capablanca or Lasker-Stientz for more instructive games.
Mar-22-07  geraldo8187: the end position is mate in 6
May-29-07  Cannon Fodder: After 1 Nf3?? e5!!, Black has a 100% winning record.
Jul-05-07  TheaN: Mate in six was hard to find. I've got:

23.Rd3 Qb1+
24.Qd1 Rxd3!
25.exd3 Bc3+
26.Ke2 Bxd3+?

But of course it's:
26.Ke2 Bg4+!
27.f3 Qxa2+
28.Qd2 Qxd2#

May-26-12  Naniwazu: <CapablancaFan> I disagree..perhaps if your rating is 2300 you'll find this game uninstructive and boring. But an amateur can learn a great deal by observing how a strong player exploits weaker play.
May-26-12  Shams: <Naniwazu> I'm in your camp on this one. I love Round 1 games from the big open tournaments for this reason-- there are frequently several games featuring massive rating disparities.

By the way, are you in Osaka?

May-27-12  Naniwazu: <Shams> You mean the Naniwa-ku ward in Osaka City? The 'Naniwazu' is also a Japanese flower which has a cycle that is different from other flowers: it blooms in winter and hides in spring...I live in Denmark.

Not any more! L Avalos vs Niloofar Nayab, 2008 As strong as 1...e5!! is, it is still possible for Black to lose.

Jul-20-13  Cannon Fodder: Thank you for pointing that out, FSR. One needs to keep on top of the latest theory in sharp lines like this.

  louispaulsen88888888: I used to play 1e5 as a" premove" on ICC . it worked fine unless someone played 1 Nf3 (yes I don't mind playing 1 d4 e5? at least in a blitz game with nothing at stake). But now seeing these games, maybe I'll give it a go again. and probaby lose!!
Sep-17-16  Everett: Just wanted to say that it is kibitzes like the following that make chessgames a special place.

  sea7kenp: I found this, by asking: "What if somebody ever played a 'Reverse Alekhine'"? I see, at the top of this screen, that this even has a name: "Ross Gambit".
