May-05-09  WhiteRook48: trapped after 21...Qh5 22 Be2 Bg4 23 Bxg4
May-13-09  Jgamazo: I too prefer to attack. I play 5. ... Na5 as Morphy did, to avoid the fried liver. 6.Bb5+ c6 7.dxc6 bxc6 8.Qf3 h6 and the attack is over.
Jun-13-09  WhiteRook48: 5...Nxd5??? 5...Na5 is the correct move
Jul-02-09  Knight13: <WhiteRook48> Actually 5...Nxd5 works if Black plays correctly.
Mar-04-10  rich187113: No one start with d4 or c4 back then.
Oct-20-10  sevenseaman: A crystalized thinking process marks Polerios game here and he duly arrives at just reward.
Jun-21-11  Llawdogg: Wow! A four hundred year old game! And this Polerio guy has six other games in the database.

  Penguincw: Nice effort by black not to lose the game.
Mar-14-12  RookFile: Nothing quite like seeing Italians play the Fried Liver. They have a way of going right for the throat.

  Peligroso Patzer: < Abdooss: Svidler almost beat Anand playing Fried Liver Attack in 1999, which spawned from Ruy Lopez Open - Svidler drew that game! Svidler vs Anand, 1999 >

Although the early middlegame play in the referenced game featured motifs similar to a Fried Liver Attack, the opening in that game actually would not be classified precisely as such.

As far as is concerned the assessment that Svidler almost beat Anand in that game, indeed, yes! Svidler actually had a forced win in the final position (in which he agreed to a draw). See comments posted in this thread: Svidler vs Anand, 1999.

  Check It Out: 1610! Fun game to play through, and interesting notes in the kibitzing.
Oct-01-13  Conrad93: This game is relatively modern for 1610.
Nov-28-16  Jesse555: 我发现不朽的名局都是有争议的
Apr-15-17  Yigor: It seems that 10. dxe5 is better than 10. Bg5 and it leads to forced winning lines for white.

PSCC: ZEe (KPG) --> 2Ede --> 6Ed2e --> 6Edf2e (Fried Liver, +0.18) --> 6Edf2De

Yes, in fact if Giulio Cesare Polerio came back from the dead and began playing today, he would need only a few minutes to catch up on opening theory and he would once again be the World Champion.

Judit Polgar vs Shakhriyar Mamedyarov

  morfishine: There is no such thing as "Old Fried Liver"

Due to its pungent and disagreeable taste, Liver is almost always consumed immediately, quickly & totally

Any Liver not consumed is happily tossed into the back yard for the dogs to fight over

There are no leftovers

You have a good memory. Here is the game.
Judit Polgar vs Mamedyarov, 2002. The Mame-meister was 17 at the time, Polgar was 26.

  sea7kenp: <morfishine>, I chuckled over that myself. Does this mean that there is also a "Modern Fried Liver"?

And then it hit me: "Old Fried Liver" was the Pun!

  morfishine: <sea7kenp: <morfishine>, I chuckled over that myself. Does this mean that there is also a "Modern Fried Liver"?...And then it hit me: "Old Fried Liver" was the Pun!> The origin for my remark was my roommate's dog, a 100 lb German Shepard named 'King' who was totally my friend, a really great dog. What happened was my roommate Jim talked me into eating Liver and Onions, which I accepted.

But, I could not eat this Beef Liver, I find Liver disgusting...So I laid my slab of Liver on a piece of wood out back, and shortly King ran up, grabbed the slab of bloody Liver, then tossed it in the air, and then waiting expectantly for the Liver to descend to the earth, opened his jaws and allowed this 1 pound of beef liver to basically be inhaled in 3 seconds by this wonderful dog

I'll never forget the sight

  sea7kenp: <morfishine>, I hated Hot Dogs as a child, and so, when I thought my Parents weren't looking, fed them to our Pekingese under the table. Worked fine, until I was caught. Punishment? The "Board of Education" (a 2x4) against my backside. Our Dog didn't complain.
