Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-12-03  Helloween: Excellent Muzio Gambit. The Queen is deflected, then White calmly gives up his pieces and forces mate.
Sep-14-05  Averageguy: <TheAlchemist> This is a good game. Why is it on your terrible game collection?
Premium Chessgames Member
  TheAlchemist: Because I think 8.b3 is a bad move and it shouldn't succeed. And Black is way too helpful (well, he was paid to lose, but still).

  TheAlchemist: <keypusher> Thanks, I do my best. And thanks for spending your kibitz no. 1000 on me. I'm honored. Here's a Beer for you! :-)
Jan-10-07  Rubenus: NO, YOU ARE WRONG!!! It is a terrible game!!!! White only wins because of Bxf4??. If 13...Qg6 instead, black wins very easily. Dadian of Mingrelia was one of the worst players ever!!

Post scriptum: Perhaps a good Monday puzzle: 13...? Black to play and win. But it is perhaps even too easy for Monday. Only a very stupid player like kreutzahler can miss this.

Feb-08-09  Jim Bartle: I wonder if the "Prince" before white's name had anything to do with the result.
Mar-25-09  jameses: <Rubenus> Qg6?? Leads to 14. Bf7 with threatening mate Re8, and follows Qxf7 Rxf7, black loses easily

Cant' Black defend with 14...♘f6, defending the e8 square?, eg 15.♗g6 ♘h5 16.♗h5 ♗f4 has Black a rook and minor piece to the good.

Apr-18-10  SoundWave: At first I though Prince Dadian was a weak player, until I saw his other games. They aren't half bad! But why is this game on his notable games list? He's giving all his pieces! That's usually not a good strategy.
Jan-23-12  SBC: .

The Google display of The International Chess Magazine Feb. 1891 is somewhat unclear. The opponent listed there for this game is either Count P. Kreutz or Count P. Krentz. The game more likely was played in 1890. The Nuova Rivista Scacchi give the opponent's name as Gen. P. Krentz.
