|May-30-10|| ||RandomVisitor: Black might stand better after <14...Bc8> 15.Nxd5 Bxe5 16.dxe5 Qxd5 17.Qe1 Qe4 18.exf6 Qxe1 19.Rhxe1 Bxf5 20.fxg7 Kxg7 21.Re5 Be6 22.Bxb5 axb5 23.a3 Bd7|
|May-30-10|| ||Once: Black goes down amazingly quickly in this one. His only crime against the natural laws of chess seems to be pushing the queenside pawns before developing his pieces. But it took some vigorous attacking moves by white to bring home the point. Fun.|
|May-30-10|| ||scormus: I was never too sure about re-christening of opening lines (Greco CG -> Latvian, Wlikes-Barre -> Traxler). Before I knew this had a name, I used to try 3. Bc4 against the Petroff, but I never won with it :-(|
But great swashbuckling play by W here, as befits the classical era of piracy on the high seas ;-)
|May-30-10|| ||SU1989: A 16th century game and no kibitzing before? <chessgames> Was this game uploaded only today?|
|May-30-10|| ||kellmano: Interestingly modern in appearance this one.
Also, black resugns rather than playing it out to the bitter death.
|May-30-10|| ||whiteshark: Chi si ferma è perduto.|
|May-30-10|| ||Chessmensch: I agree with <kellmano>. This is remarkable for its time. See Ecclesiastes 1:9.|
|May-30-10|| ||newzild: Cool game. Any chance of a Cochrane?|

|May-30-10|| ||chrisowen: Leonardos spreading his wings amen, hoping for flight of the Bxf5 following a score 19.Qh6. Fair formula, Gio conned a drawing Bxf5 opening also main arrangement Rf1. In wait he lie, copped a heading back bishop Bh7. Turn of the screw cut flying rxf6 loose. Propel swing in knight drift cranked up attack. It was the real ghost hornet Bg5/h4 that stirred the nest. Qxh6 is light's invincible architect to shaft him.|

|Jun-15-10|| ||Antiochus: Thanks for this GOTD!|
|Aug-06-10|| ||noTALent: Is this the earliest or earliest known game with castling?|
|Apr-29-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: 16. Rxf6! - Very cool!
