Dec-12-03  d4Nf6Bg5: why 28. ..Bc3?
Jun-02-05  Heavy Metal Thunder: This is a very creepy opening, feels like anything can happen.
Jun-02-05  weirdoid: I tend to feel that most really old 1.e4 openings (K-gambit, Center game, Scandinavians, etc) are basically "accidents waiting to occur" for the unwary of both sides, but that is why they are so much fun for blitz (though this game is not blitz).

I don't see the point in 10 ... Re8+ though. I think Rg8 is better, say 11.0-0-0+ Nd7 12. Ne4 c3. Also, 28 ... Bc3 is definitely a blunder.

Oct-21-07  Ciro: Perhaps because the only possible and not see another good
Mar-15-08  tranquil simplicity: In my humble opinion, I feel that the King's Gambit is perhaps the most exciting open game favourable to the tactician and that the Scandinavian Defense especially the 2..Nf6 variation is a very solid and tactically beautiful opening. These two openings are simply not frequently used by masters, NOT because they are somewhat inferior but because they are simply "not in fashion". Chess like everything else in human life, goes in and out of fashion. So do openings.
Jul-01-08  Chessman100: <weirdoid> Actually, everything up to move 13 is theory. If you don't believe me, check NCO.
