  Sneaky: Knockout in the first round!
Feb-20-04  Whitehat1963: Obviously black is as lost as Jed Clampett at the Four Seasons, but what's the best move after 8 ... Kd6?
Aug-13-04  misguidedaggression: 9.O-O looks like it wins:

9...Kc5? 10.Be3+ Kb4 11.a3+ Ka4 12.b3+ Ka5 13.b4+ Ka4 14.Nc3#

9...Kxe5 10.f4+ Kxe4 (Ke3 11.Re1+) 11.Be3+ And black can only sac his Queen to avoid 11...Kd4 Qc4#

9...Qe7/Qf7/Na3 10.Re1+ runs into mates similar to the first 2 variations.

I don't see anything else for Black.

Dec-08-05  Chopin: <Denhaene> must be blind.

  fredthebear: After 4.Bc4 the correct move for Black is 4...c6. Natural moves like 4...Be7, 4...Nf6 and 4...h6? all lose here as White continues each the same way with 5.dxe5 and then threatens the f7-square.

Oct-10-19  Cheapo by the Dozen: I don't understand the question from <Joshka>, as it sounds like he was a piece up.
