  profK: A cute minature that should be seen by all KGA proponents...
May-17-11  MaxxLange: It's a defense to the King's Gambit that's been known to be no good at all, for more than 100 years, but, if that's your idea of real chess, enjoy.
May-17-11  MaxxLange: It is a pretty bust, with all the piece sacs.
May-17-11  Sho: View Mark Hebden vs Joel Benjamin (1987) on CG, same opening.
May-17-11  MaxxLange: Really! I'll look at that. I thought the "long whip" variation (5....h5 and 6...Rh7) was in the ol' dustbin of history.
May-21-11  Sho: My bad, 6...Nh6.
May-22-11  MaxxLange: it's still the "Long Whip" variation. after 5...h5, right?

6...Nh6 looks better than Captain Evans' 6...Rh7, but Black should not even be in this position...play 5...Nf6 or 5....d6, not 5...h5?

  perfidious: <MaxxLange> If Black would be so obliging as to play into the Long Whip, I'd always play the gambit!

See the following game, where Black introduces a new idea in the old main line: Fedorov vs Ivanchuk, 2001.

In a subsequent 2001 game, Fedorov even went so far as to abandon his beloved King's Gambit against Ivanchuk.

Apr-06-14  Ratt Boy: <Sho: View Mark Hebden vs Joel Benjamin (1987) on CG, same opening.>

That would be Hebden vs J Benjamin, 1987 (Jon, not Joel).

Jul-25-14  siegbert: the good old days!
