Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-13-10  sneaky pete: An old favourite. I'm glad it finally wriggled its way into this database somehow. Some years ago I intended to submit this one and a handful of other great Noteboom games still missing, and kept postponing doing it - but I sure would have done it ... eventually.

Poor Van Mindeno. You make one small mistake (4... Bh5), as Euwe bluntly calls it, in an unoffical training game against a teenager, and get immortalised as the inventor of the Mindeno Variation Retreat Line.

I wonder at which point black's game was really lost. Is 7... Nc6 as played in some later games good enough?

Feb-26-11  TheTamale: A fine and fun game by today's Player of the Day. I, too, am glad it made its way to the database.

  perfidious: <sneaky pete> While I never played 4....Bh5 in this line, preferring instead 4....Bxf3 5.Qf3 Nf6, to assess it as a mistake seems an overstatement.

In the mid 1970s, there was a neat effort published in Chess Life & Review in the line following 7....Nc6, and I wish I could remember which issue.

Jan-21-14  jerseybob: Perfidious: Check out Grefe-Commons, 1975 U.S. Chp.(0-1,23) in this database, which contains the Nc6 idea, though not the exact line you describe.

  eykca: Now this is the "firecracker" I was calling for yesterday.... damn
Mar-11-17  clement41: 13 Nf7 would have been stronger but admittedly it comes with less fireworks. White rightly waits for 15...Nc6?! to be played before he goes 16 Bh6, as he had seen that a premature Bh6 would have been met with ...Nbd7, covering the Bf8. I guess 16 0-0-0 is good too, but deemed too routinely? 17 Rd1! is strong, emohasizing black's problem bishop on f8 (e.g. 17...RxR+ uncastling white is fully irrelevant here 18 KxR Nd7 19 Be6 and wins)

  ChessHigherCat: <eykca: Now this is the "firecracker" I was calling for yesterday.... damn> Siegfried goes Boom. It seems more like a composition than a real game but either way it's extremely entertaining (more bread and circuses, CG!)

It <was> a composition. And it was written in a Daniel Notebook.

  Fusilli: <morf> I think you and I are on the same page when it comes to the puns. They simply have to go.

Plus in this case I would assess the game as of terrible quality. It should have been 13.Nf7, 1-0 on the spot.

  OhioChessFan: Right, after 14 years, cg.c is going to stop the puns because a couple people want them to. <morf> has some kind of mental issue that causes him to rant about this and pollute the site every day. It's incredibly tiresome.

When they asked her why she chose to send her children to the French school instead of the German one, she said: "Because it's impossible to get through life without a sense of humor". The only great (Aryan) German comedian I can think of is Hitler, who did an even more ridiculous imitation of himself than Chaplin could do!
