Jan-22-08  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Anyone else likes black's moves 27-30? :)
Oct-10-14  Tim Delaney: <Autoreparaturwerkbau: Anyone else likes black's moves 27-30? :)>

Of course! As an offensive weapon, Black's king is the equal of white's "extra" bishop, In effect, Black is two pawns ahead with an easy endgame win.

Oct-10-14  offramp: That's a very fast moving black king!
Oct-10-14  The17thPawn: This pun eludes me. Anyone wish to offer some insight?
Oct-10-14  paavoh: I guess Kinder Eggs are chocolate candy, shaped like an egg and containing a surprise miniature toy inside.

  FSR: <Kinder Surprise, also known as a Kinder Egg or, in the original Italian, Kinder Sorpresa, is a candy manufactured by Italian company Ferrero. Originally intended for children, it has the form of a chocolate egg containing a small toy, often requiring assembly. "Kinder" is the German word for "children".>
Oct-10-14  The17thPawn: <paahov> <FSR> - Thanks for enlightening me.

  hesyrett: 19. Nxc8 looks dubious.  Why swap off a very active ♘ for an undeveloped ♗?  19. Ne4 could be an improvement.
Oct-10-14  morfishine: Exciting and unique game! Black offers a piece, which White declines; then Black passes on an exchange preferring to capture the Bishop; by move 20 Black is up 4-pawns for a piece; Black's thrilling King march diagonally across the board to <c3> left me fairly speechless. Not that I hadn't seen this sort of thing before, but that there was a closing finality, a sense of doom for White once the Black King reached his appointed destination.



Oct-10-14  morfishine: <FSR> Thanks for the information! I would've spent at least an hour googling around and still probably wouldn't have figured out what 'kinder' alludes to.

This is one of the aspects of <CG> that I enjoy the most: members freely sharing useful, interesting information


Oct-10-14  Santa Claus 77: They are really called Überraschungsei (Surprise Egg) or Kinder Überraschung (the company is called Kinder). Anyway, nice game and quite some mileage on that old man ;-)!
Oct-10-14  newzild: A great game to play through!

"Kinder Surprise" would have been a better name for this game, I think, as I can't see anything egg-like about the moves.

Oct-10-14  Mating Net: After 36.Bxd3 White is thinking "Please take my Bishop on your next move, I'm begging you!"

  kevin86: The queen side attack is vicious!
Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: A game played by someone with KINDER in his name should be Child's Play.
Oct-10-14  DLev: Small steps for man's king, giant leap for Kindermann.
Oct-10-14  Pballa: 41. Bb1 Rc2+ 42. Bxc2 Ra1+ 43. Bb1 b2#

Great game by black.

  Penguincw: Yay! Another fun pun. :)

BTW: I don't want to cause controversy or anything, but is it true that Kinder Eggs are banned in the U.S.? In Canada they're not.

Oct-10-14  SirRuthless: Why would it cause a controversy? Here is an article for you. I hope it helps.
