|Oct-18-10|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: And good heavens--she was only 6?!|
|Oct-18-10|| ||rilkefan: "a month short of her sixth birthday"
Is this an example of at it were normal extreme prodigy performance? How much of the above game is theory?
|Oct-18-10|| ||RandomVisitor: 14.Bb3 might retain a small white advantage.|
|Oct-18-10|| ||Once: Humbling. She was only 5 at the time? Heck, it sounds like the name of the opening was bigger than she was!|
"Italian Game: Two Knights Defense. Traxler Counterattack King March line"
An interesting parallel to today's POTD - Euwe vs Loman, 1923 - where again (relative) youth triumphed over experience.
|Oct-18-10|| ||Nightsurfer: SHOCK and AWE!! A kid that young - and then she has smashed poor Dietrich that way ... can't imagine how that guy has felt after that bashing ...!! ... :-( ... Conclusion: Beware of the jailbaits ... :-) ...|
|Oct-18-10|| ||smalldreams: How old was her opponent?|
|Oct-18-10|| ||FSR: What does "Exhibition" mean? Was this a simultaneous exhibition? If so, who was giving it? (Traditionally, the exhibitor (exhibitionist?) plays Black.) Or an exhibition like a living chess game or something like that - in which case the moves of the game could well have been prearranged? Note that Black, the following year, supposedly lost a correspondence game in 6 moves (all book) playing Damiano's Defense. Pritchard vs J Hempel, 1967 Something does not compute.|
|Oct-18-10|| ||ketchuplover: 21.Qh4 seems worth a try.|
|Oct-18-10|| ||kevin86: Black attacks,white attacks better,black attacks best!|
|Oct-18-10|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: Killer instinct at six years old !!|
|Oct-18-10|| ||Naugh: Nice game for sure. White made some very strange moves kind of "hoping" for a promising attack.|
|Oct-18-10|| ||redorc19: usually after 4. Ng5 white gets and active aggressive game against the Black king. Black successfully switched the roles in this game!!!|
|Oct-18-10|| ||redorc19: wait... she was 6!!??? What in the world!!!!!!!!!|
