|Sep-24-10|| ||The Fly: 2397? Yeah, right.|
|Sep-26-10|| ||dumbgai: Noah played like a 1397.|
|Sep-26-10|| ||whiteshark: What's wrong with <9.Qxc6> ?|
|Sep-26-10|| ||whiteshark: <bishop55: 9...Bd5, maybe.> |
I think that compared with e.g. <9.Qxc6 Bd5 10. Qxa6 Bxg2 11. Nh3 Bxh1 12.Nh5+ Kg6 13.Qxb5>

the game continuation looks much easier (or technically solid). At least I could now imagine why Moiseenko had choosen the actual line. Thanks for that, <bishop55>!
|Sep-27-10|| ||HeMateMe: This is amazing. Why would black allow a game to start like this?|
|Oct-02-10|| ||Illogic: If 11.. Nc2, then white plays e4! and Ng5+|
|Oct-11-10|| ||blazerdoodle: Maybe he just figured he should do something incredibly inane and shock his opponent into making an even more stupid mistake, I mean, since he knew he was going to lose before he sat down, why not do something absurd?|
It sure didn't work.
Didn't Alekhine play this, or a variation of it?
|Oct-11-10|| ||blazerdoodle: Thanks Whiteshark... lol... I was staring at the board thinking why didn't he pick up the Bishop when I saw you'd pointed that out. Down here around level ""D"", we do need these things explained badly. That's no joke.|

|Nov-07-10|| ||blazerdoodle: Thx. Thought so. I get crushed whenever I try it.|
