Aug-22-08  TheTamale: A crushing blow by Greco. I'll bet NN never played another double-fianchetto again... perhaps not even another game of chess. What a fiasco!
Oct-23-08  fref: It's weird that the double-fianchetto played in 1620 is an idea of the "hyper modern school".

  mjmorri: White's pawn front is more vulnerable than it first appears. With Ng4 and f5, Black could disrupt the center quite nicely.
Dec-15-08  vikinx: A line of symmetry(except the castled Black king and rook)!
Dec-28-08  YoungEd: Greco says that "the remainder of the game is missing" because he was too embarrassed to show 8. ...Ng4 9. Kf1 Nxe3+. Revisionist history at its worst!
Jan-24-09  WhiteRook48: if 8...Ng4 9 Kf1?? Nxe3+ is correct, the game score should be 0-1, not 1-0
Jan-14-13  blazerdoodle: lol... that's annoying though...
Dec-03-14  Ehrenfest: This game suggests that the Greco vs NN games are perhaps just analyses instead of matches played.
Apr-29-16  Asabovsobelo: "WhiteRook48: if 8...Ng4"
9. Bd2 and..? I think Ehrenfest is right. It's a study as most if not all Greco's games are, but White is still clearly dominating, which I think is the point he's trying to make.
Jan-10-19  sneaky pete: The remainder of the game isn't missing at all, it's right here: Greco vs NN, 1620
