Jan-19-05  ArturoRivera: I dont remember from which user, but there was a collection protagonized of weird name subjects, like that guy who was beated by Marshall (Burn), and the player named beer, etc, i think this guy would perfectly fit in that collection! Hi eggman!

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Didn't the Beatles sing, "I am the Egg Man?" Seriously though, this is a very good and imaginative attack. The 16th and 17th moves are quite surprising.

  perfidious: From such humble beginnings......

The loser of this game(which, btw , appeared in the very first Informant) went on to become ICCF GM Dr Christian Issler.

Dec-12-08  timhortons: is these chessgames user eggman?
Jan-11-09  WhiteRook48: no, he said in his forum that he wasn't THIS guy.

  GrahamClayton: Excellent attacking by Black. 9...♗f1 10.♕f1 gives White compensation for the exchange due to his large centre and initiative.

If White accepts the bishop sacrifice 16...♗e5! by 17.de5, then Black exploits a pin with the combination 17...♖d1! 18.♕d1 ♘f2+ 19.♖f2 ♕d1+ winning the Queen.

  perfidious: <Graham> In the 1.1978 issue of the BCM, I believe Sir Stuart Milner-Barry mentioned the alternative 10....g4, in his annotations to a win over Michael Yeo (in this DB) as played against him by CHO'D Alexander, and I'd have played it if things had ever got this far. Trouble is, my opponents often played the weaker 7.Nc3, and I even faced 8.b4 twice that I remember.

  Dionysius1: I think I've got a defence to the 2 move mate on the white diagonal. 23. a4 Be6 24. Nf3 Bd5 25. Ra3 I know Black's still winning on material, particularly after 25. Re1+ but does that stop the mate?

  Sastre: <Dionysius1> 23.a4 Bh3 and White cannot stop 24...Bg2#.

  Dionysius1: And very nice too!
Aug-22-17  Christoforus Polacco: Kings Gambit is beautiful. Sometimes even for Black :))
