Dec-16-05  technical draw: You shouldn't mate Bing at Christmas.
May-12-14  SuperPatzer77: <technical draw: You shouldn't mate Bing at Christmas> LOL LOL. I'd like to change bing to backgammon. LOL

Is there any checkmate in the backgammon game??? LOL LOL (Just joking)

  offramp: It seems as if black is all over white but then there is a sudden counter-attack.

  solander: Is this really an authentic game? To
me it seems "composed".

  Once: Astonishing. This seemed to be all about the black attack ... until white won.

Fritzie says that 11...Nxe4 was the losing mistake, but respec' to white for spotting that 12. Qxf3 was playable.

Almost a shame that it isn't a POTD after 11...Nxe4

May-12-14  goodevans: <Once> 11...Nxe4 isn't a game move. Did you mean 10...Nd4 or 11...Nf3+ as the losing move.

If the losing move is <11...Nf3+> then what would have saved black as <11.Nxe4> has him in all sorts of trouble?

Premium Chessgames Member
  Once: You are quite right. I meant 11...Nxf3+

Instead, Fritz gives 11...dxe4 12. Rxe4+ Be7 13. Qxd4 Bxf3 14. Qxf6 gxf6 15. Rf4 Bh5

Material is level but black has rubbish pawns on the kingside. That's a pretty tough line for black to have spotted as just about every move (apart from the last) is an "only" move.

  NM JRousselle: 10... 0-0-0 looks like the best move for Black.

  kevin86: the surprise queen sac leads to a double check and mate next.

Bing's play guarantees a White Christmas!

May-12-14  Howard: Somehow it seems that in the last few weeks there's been a trend for the GOTD to be of an obscure nature. In other words, there've been a lot of simul games, games between relative unknowens, casual games, etc...

Anyone know why this is the case ?

  Once: Chessgames likes to show us games that we might not know and which have a good pun.

And sometimes not such a good pun.

  Domdaniel: Why am I reminded of the Ring brothers, Bo and Bing ... ?

  GrahamClayton: This game between Edward Holt and Ted Bingamon was played in either of the following two tournaments:

Kanawha County Junior Championship (Bingamon, Holt and Larry Kinnamon finished =1st with 4/5), or the City of Charleston championship (Holt finishing 2nd in the consolation division).
