Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-02-04  Bobak Zahmat: Nice attack by Keres. A wonderfull game of King's Gambit declined. I like myself more the accepted version of this gambit but this is also a game to learn about.
Dec-19-05  dr.noooo: The sort of game that plays itself after the black queen gobble gobbles. Keres did this sort of thing with barely a glance at the board, almost resembles a blindfold exhibition quickie.
Jul-24-06  takattack: Does anyone know a name to this KGD variation? I seem to play against it on playchess and I couldn't find it in my Kornchoi King Gambit book.

Jan-07-09  YoungEd: Black seems to think with his 5. ...♗b4 that he can sacrifice a piece in the opening and take advantage of White's poor pawns and relatively exposed King. But White's 8. ♕d4 kills that idea; after the forced exchange of minor pieces, Black doesn't have enough pieces developed to launch any threats on White, and White will win even without all the pretty sacrifice on f3 that follows.

  beenthere240: I don't see why black didn't throw in the towel after losing the piece. I don't think it was a sac, I think it was a blunder.
Jan-07-09  YoungEd: You could be right, <beenthere240>, but my guess is that Black planned the position after his 7th move. After all, if White does something silly like defend the c-pawn with ♗b2 or something, then ♕h4+ followed by ♘xg3 would be attractive for Black. White's 8. ♕d4 is the only move that defends the c-pawn and attacks at the same time, and I think Black just missed it.
Dec-31-20  Jambow: For Peet's sake go easy...
