|Jan-10-06|| ||OJC: Bird vs NN, 1869|
|Jan-10-06|| ||al wazir: The only reason for playing 8. a3 was to stop black from playing Bb4+. 8. Nxc6 (which white played on the next move anyway) does this just as well. If 8...bxc6 then 9. Qxg5, threatening Qxf5. If 8...dxc6 then 9. Qe2.|
|Jan-10-06|| ||Laskerfan82: <BiLL RobeRTiE>, are you the same Bill Robertie who is former world backgammon champion?|
|Jan-10-06|| ||patzer2: Black's 11...Qxd4+!! forces a mate in four after 12. Kxd4. If 12. Kd2, then 12...Qe3+ 13. Kc3 Bg7+ 14. e5 Bxe5+ 15. Kc4 Be6# is the mate. Note that if 13. Kc4, then 13...Ba6# follows.|
|Jan-10-06|| ||blingice: He hasn't been here for a half year.|
|Jan-10-06|| ||meloncio: About the pun: 'Stuck in the Middle With You', a nice Gerry Rafferty's song that appears in Tarantino's movie 'Reservoir Dogs'.|
|Jan-10-06|| ||itz2000: so 12Kxd4 was a mistake then...
what are the white chances if he escapes?
Well the only possibliy is
12. Kd2 Qe3+
13 Kc3 Bg7+
14 Kc4 Be6#
White should have quitted on 12
|Jan-10-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: An entertaining game, with a pun reminding me of that great song.|
Also make sure to see the following game, with a similar opening: K Haglund vs H Mineur, 1981
|Jan-10-06|| ||pilot: The King's Gambit is a very tricky opening and there are a few ways to get out of this without playing 6.Kd2 (which is definately a mistake as witnessed in this game). Aside from the Muzio gambit with 5.Bc4 allowing the knight to drop, a 'safer' option is playing 6.g3 followed by 7.Qxg4 since the knight on e5 supports the white queen moving to g4. |
Nowadays, people seem to like playing quieter defensive lines against the King's Gambit accepted with moves like 3..d6 or 3..h6 to support ..g5 Much less exciting and a real pain to White if the black pawn on f4 stays solidly throughout the game.
|Jan-10-06|| ||DeepBlade: Jesus, I didnt know how fragile the KGA is for White! This is definatly a gambit gone wrong.|
|Jan-10-06|| ||OhioChessFan: The song was by Stealer's Wheel. Was Gerry Rafferty a part of that group? I sure don't think so.
Clowns to the left of me,
Jokers to the right,
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you.
|Jan-10-06|| ||OhioChessFan: Well, google me and call me Charlie. A quick search found out that Gerry Rafferty was in fact a member of Stealers Wheel. It was a surprise to see that it's a Dylan song.|
|Jan-10-06|| ||WannaBe: <mahmoudkubba> notice how the king is "stuck in the middle" of the chess board? And no other pieces from queen side even moved.|
Reminds me of the movie: "Reservoir Dogs".
|Jan-10-06|| ||Calculon: <BiLL RobeRTiE>, are you the same Bill Robertie who assisted in writing the two 'Harrington on Holdem' Poker books?|
|Jan-10-06|| ||TopaLove: The line I like in this opening is 5.♗c4|
|Jan-10-06|| ||OhioChessFan: <Bill RobeRTiE>, are you the same Bill Robertie who lived next door to me and never retunred my tool set before skipping town?|
|Jan-10-06|| ||weisyschwarz: The King's Gambit Accepted has to be the two-edged sword in chess. You either slay quickly, and with style or die quickly and embarrassingly. I prefer to decline it, figuring that the opponent knows how to wield that sword.|
|Jan-10-06|| ||morpstau: g.h. Mackenzie won the second and fourth american championships. He was indeed a good player but the won who would slay him is the winner of the first WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, THE GREAT PAUL MORPHY|
|Jan-21-06|| ||kvcs: <OhioChessFan> "Well, google me and call me Charlie. A quick search found out that Gerry Rafferty was in fact a member of Stealers Wheel. It was a surprise to see that it's a Dylan song."|
This is one of <Ancr's> favorite songs. He wishs to know where you got that Dylan is the composer. Site details and others say that Joe Egan and Gerry Rafferty should be credited.

|Feb-26-08|| ||Knight13: Looks like White didn't study the KGA enough huh.|
|Apr-06-09|| ||WhiteRook48: better with 4 Bc4 g4 5 Ne5|
|Jun-30-12|| ||ForeverYoung: This is one the cuter finishes I have seen! Another option was 14 ... f5 mate. Checkmating with a Pawn!|
|Feb-04-17|| ||morfishine: This game was played in 1868. The song "Stuck in the Middle" was released in 1972|
Another example of a totally nonsensical, completely stupid and irrelevant game title
|May-28-19|| ||Jean Defuse: ...
This game <played in New York in April 1864!> Mackenzie's opponent must have been James Thompson
