|Apr-06-07|| ||Bingat29: The white bishop is lost. and if Rh7. Qb2+ snaring the queen side rook. If the king side rook moves to other than Rf7, e.g. 22...Rf4 23. g3 Rg4 24. Nf6 + forks that rook. If 23. ...Rf3 24. Ke2)|
|Apr-06-07|| ||GrandPatzerSCL: What if Black plays the move [6... Nf2]?|
|Apr-06-07|| ||gambitfan: Game of the Day (GOD) 06/04/2007|
|Apr-06-07|| ||dumbgai: <Bingat29> Your moves make no sense.|
|Apr-06-07|| ||gambitfan: IMHO (In my humble opinion, 2... f6 is no good answer to the weak 2 c4 which should be adequately "punished".
Philidor's move (2... c6!) is the right answer... See J Bruhl vs Philidor, 1783|
|Apr-06-07|| ||timhortons: these game is basically won at home, the opponent was overwhelmed and just dont know what to do...exceptional wesly!!!!!!!|
|Apr-06-07|| ||Thrajin: <timhortons> I love your coffee and breakfast sandwiches. ;-)|
|Apr-06-07|| ||pawnofdoom: Can someone explain this opening to me? What happens after 6. ... Nf2 or 7. ... Qh4+?|
|Apr-06-07|| ||dpacaba: <gambitfan> I don't think the Opening Explorer would agree to that|
|Apr-06-07|| ||kevin86: The acronym of GOD for game of the day is an amusing idea. I just hope that other users would put their attention to the real God-after all,a commandment is "Thou shalt not have any other Gods before ME".|
A good game by the winner;for the loser,he has a lot of work to do to catch up.
|Apr-06-07|| ||Stonewaller2: <pawnofdoom: Can someone explain this opening to me? What happens after 6. ... Nf2 or 7. ... Qh4+?>|
6. ... f2 7. h5 xh1?? 8. xf7#; 7. .. h4+ 8. f1 intending g5 trapping the .
<kevin86>: "Mine own belief is that the soul hath her seat in the abdomen -- in which faith we may discern and interpret a truth hitherto unintelligible, namely that the glutton is of all men most devout. He is said in the Scripture to 'make a god of his belly' -- why, then, should he not be pious, having ever his Deity with him to freshen his faith?" -- Diversiones Sanctorum (http://www.online-literature.com/vi...)
|Apr-06-07|| ||playground player: Speaking of Scripture, there is a Pharaoh named So in the Bible (II Kings 17:4). Kind of ironic, if Mr. El Taher is an Egyptian.|
|Apr-06-07|| ||Gantreel: OK, so 6. ... Nf2 7. Qh5 g6, then what?|
|Apr-06-07|| ||gambitfan: <dpacaba>: The Opening Explorer precisely gave me J Bruhl vs Philidor, 1783 |
After 1 e4 e5 2 c4 c6 the most aggressive attack for White is 3 c2 (6 games) and the only winning answer for Black is Philidor!
But this variant is very seldom and Chess Opening Explorer is of no statistical significance in this case...
|Apr-06-07|| ||Alekhinelover: What if 6...Nf2 7.Qh5 O-O? Can white still get a win?|
|Apr-06-07|| ||zb2cr: To explain <Bingat29>'s comments, which seem cryptic:|
So after 22. ... Rf7; 23. Qg8+, Ke7; 24. Qxc8 (Black loses his white-squared Bishop). If then 24. ... Rxh7; 25. Qxb7+ and White has his choice of which Black Rook to pick off.
If instead Black tries 22. ... Rf4; 23. g3. Now the Black Rook is all but trapped. If 23. ... Rf3; 24. Ke2 and the Black Rook can only retreat to f7, at which point the line in the previous paragraph applies. If 23. ... Rg4; 24. Nf6+, Kd8; 25. Qf8+, Kc7; 26. Qe7+. Now two variations:
(a) 26. ... Nd7; 27. Ne8+, Kb8; 28. Qxd6#.
(b) 26. ... Bd7; 27. Nxg4, hxg4; 28. Rf1 with a winning material edge.
|Apr-09-07|| ||Stonewaller2: <Gantreel: OK, so 6. ... Nf2 7. Qh5 g6, then what?>|
Just off the top of my woodpusher's head (after taking time off to deal with the U.S. tax laws), 8. fg fg 9. h6 intending g5.
|Apr-09-07|| ||Stonewaller2: <Alekhinelover: What if 6...Nf2 7.Qh5 O-O? Can white still get a win?>|
f3-g5 looks tempting, but see my earlier caveat. Whatever. Black's sixth in the text sure looks like he wanted to prevent h5.
|Nov-20-07|| ||zanshin: Black should have played 6...Nf2 (Fritz10):

|Nov-22-07|| ||Tomlinsky: 6...Nf2 7.Qh5 g6 8.Qh6 Kd7 9.Qd7 Qf8 10.Be6+ Kc6 11.Bd5+ Draw|
White is fine.
