Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-08-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Checkmate with knight! Black's King trapped by his own forces. Hellmann's Mayonnaised.
Dec-06-06  thetank444: Played a similar game to this. Black castled on move 7, answered with....

8.Qg4 which sets up a powerful attack

I think taking the e pawn on move 6 is black's mistake. (before the obvious, Rf8 catastrophe)

  fredthebear: Yes, 6...Nxe4? is a poor but tempting choice. In the Two Knights Defense, Black should play 5...Bc5 and get in d5 quickly. 7...g6 is useless. 7...Nd6, 7...Ne5, 7...Bf6 and 7...0-0 are all better than g6.
