|Mar-25-08|| ||martin moller: This is one of the very first games recorded where Jorgen Moeller employs his "Moeller variation" in the italian game ( 9.d5 ). I found the game in the danish chess magazine " Tidsskrift for skak" july 1898.|
|Dec-27-08|| ||KingG: If Black had found 11...0-0!, he would already have refuted the Moeller Attack. E Levin vs Larry Evans, 1946|
White simply doesn't have enough compensation for the pawn.

An eminently logical observation; it only stands to reason that Black loses here by stubbornly trying to hang on to the extra piece, instead of cheerfully returning it, as Evans does in the game you cite.
|Jun-06-12|| ||GrahamClayton: 16...♘fe4 17. ♖e1 f5 18. ♖e7 also wins quickly for White, according to analysis by George Botterill in "Open Gambits", Batsford, 1986|
|Oct-22-14|| ||Ke2: Yep 11...O-O is critical. But apparently black can survive with 14... Nfe4 15. Nd2 f5 16. f3 O-O leading to an endgame that is quite survivable with opposite color bishops. I keep finding equality at best when analyzing, guess they were right, the Italian Game is bad!|
