Mar-12-03  Rookpawn: If you like this gambit line of the Cunningham, i.e. 5. g3 fxg3 6. O-O gxh2+ 7. Kh1, look at the games of Baron Tassilo Von Der Lasa
Sep-05-04  Knight13: These are my words: Lets check and pawn attack!
Sep-05-04  Calchexas: Let's decompose and enjoy assembling!

cool game. Typical Philidor.

Jan-06-05  MidnightDuffer: Philidor said "pawns are the soul of the game"!
Jul-21-05  springergo: So simple!
Jan-15-06  morpstau: The Cunninghams three pawns Gambit Morphy used this also. Another patzer is trashed! Rookpawn: If you like this gambit line of the Cunningham, i.e. 5. g3 fxg3 6. O-O gxh2+ 7. Kh1, look at the games of Baron Tassilo Von Der Lasa
Oct-14-07  wolfmaster: The Bertin Gambit to the Cunningham... Risky, but certainly playable. as Philidor demonstrated here.
Feb-01-08  wolfmaster: <MidnightDuffer> He was right!
Oct-15-08  just a kid: <Midnightduffer>Then how come Philidor gambited 3 pawns?

  jnpope: Instructional game given by Philidor in <Analyse du jeu des Échecs>, 1750, Analyse du jeu des Échecs, 1750, pp106-107. Philidor does not identify either player.
Dec-01-15  pumping707: Typical philidor style
Jun-02-16  juanhernandez: excellent game !!!
Sep-03-16  Christoforus Polacco: This game shows that it's not necessary to exchange too fast the rook by the bishop. Sometimes is better to wait - using the pin- and to capture ''whole'' rook :)
Sep-03-16  morfishine: Philidor always seems to win, while NN hardly wins at all
