Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-14-05  KingG: O-O-O? is a natural move, but is a blunder, as it loses the bishop after 14.Rd4!. Day won another game with the same 'trap' in L Day vs A Delgado, 1978. In neither case did the opponent do the decent thing and resign immediately.
Dec-14-05  chesscrazy: There is no mate symbol at the end even though it is mate.

  IMlday: It's rather amazing but the completely obvious 6..♗c5!? looks like it may be an overplay! 6..♗e7, with no pin, is more modest, but harder to play against. 6..♗c5 7.♕e2 ♗f2+? 8.♔d1 ♕xd5+ 9.♘fd2! winning, is an old trap. Yes, in the gamescore the mate symbol is left out.

  Gypsy: I knew I saw this opening somewhere: Bronstein vs Tal, 1968
Dec-15-05  KingG: <IMlday> Yes, i agree with you about 6...Bc5. People you play the Falkbeer seem to think they're getting into some kind of all out tactical war, when in fact if White knows what he's doing, the best Black can hope for is an inferior endgame.

I think the Falkbeer is over rated by a lot of players, and is not one of the best defences to the KG.
