  John Saunders: A couple of years after this game was played, I faced Ray Keene in a simul. He was then I suppose of around 2400 strength and I was about 1850. I was amazed when he played this aggressive White line against me. I presume he learnt it from Day's play in the World Junior Championship, in which he also played. It seemed a bit out of character for him and he played more conservatively against the other guys in the simul. I varied from Huebner's play on move 5 and it continued 5...Nc6 6 a3 bxa3 7 c3 Bd7 8 Bxa3 Bxa3 9 Nxa3 a6 10 Bd3 Nh6 11 0-0 Rc8 12 Qd2 Nf5 13 Bxf5 exf5 14 Nc2 Na5 15 Ne3 Nb3 16 Qb2 Nxa1 17 Rxa1 g6 18 Nxd5 Bc6 19 Nf6+ Kf8 20 d5 Bb5 21 Qd2 h6 22 Nd4 Bc4 23 d6 Be6 24 Nxe6+ fxe6 25 Qd4 Kf7 26 Rb1 Rb8 27 c4 b6 28 h4 Rf8 29 Qf4 Kg7 30 Qg3 Rxf6 ½-½. Some fairly poor moves in there, but it was only a simul.

  IMlday: In Day-Hubner I completely missed 6..Qa5! Otherwise I would have played 6.Bd3 Qb6 7.Qe2 Nc6 8.Bb2 and made a game of it. Both Marshall and Keres played tournament games with 1.e4 c5 2.b4 cxb4 3.a3 e6 4.axb4 Bxb4 5.c3 so it can't be too bad.

Spraggett played the French Wing version in a Canadian Closed circa 1989. We had prepared it together for possible use if his 1989 Candidates match vs Yusupov went to 5-minute blitz games.

Aside from Ray, both Capablanca and Bohatirchuk played Wing Gambits in simuls. Seems a-pawns aren't worth a full pawn, maybe because they can only capture in one direction.

Nov-19-04  Resignation Trap: Unfortunately for Capablanca, this was NOT from a simul game, but from a tournament: Capablanca vs R T Black, 1911 .

  John Saunders: <ray keene> yes, both those moves look v good for White. But I cannot believe I played a move as bad as 17...g6, allowing Nxd5 and a permanent home for the knight on f6. 17...Be6 must be very good for Black.
Nov-19-04  unferth: After 28 ... Nxb1, how does Black answer 29 Bc2, threatening both the b1 knight & mate in 2 on h7? 29 ... g6 allows at least a perpetual after 30 Bxg6, and after 29 ... f5 30 exf e.p., White can chase Black's king to an uncomfortable spot on e7 & still regain the knight ... can't he?
Nov-19-04  unferth: Hmm--I guess 29 ... Qh4 covers it. Never mind.
