  ray keene: it was nice to mate nunn with a queen sacrifice even tho he was rather young at the time!
Mar-13-09  WhiteRook48: Nunn of them! A queen sacrifice!

  Jim Bartle: Wow! Nunn was rated 2600 as an eight-year-old?
Mar-13-09  WhiteRook48: well, 2602 to be exact. If he was 2600 as an 8 year old, he'd be better than Nicholas Nip. (maybe.)

  ray keene: i think we can safely say that john nunn was rated about 1000 when he was eight-but there were signs of promise to come!
Aug-24-09  WhiteRook48: where did Nunn go wrong?
Premium Chessgames Member
  profK: 6...c5 is pretty weak. It causes a permanent d6 weakness that get easily exploited.

  erniecohen: So why was a 15-year old playing an 8-year old in a tournament?
Premium Chessgames Member
  drukenknight: I think white must have considered Rf1 on his 17th move, which makes finding the final moves a bit easier. off hand I think 17...b5 is the best way to keep the attack going. I hope Mr. Keene has time to comment on this but I guess he has not been back lately? A very good game.

  Beancounter: Of course after 18.. exd5 19.Qxd5+ picks up the rook.
Jun-30-15  Shoukhath007: One of the amazing games of john nunn.Amazing sacrifices, blunders etc watch the amazing entertainimg video with analysis.
