  Zenchess: Note that Black not only fails to cripple White's K-side pawn structure, he himself loses the right to castle in sneaky pete's line.
Aug-06-04  Phoenix: I'm from the U.S as well and had no clue what the pun was about!
Oct-31-04  morphy234: hahah!! the funniest game I've ever seen!
Oct-31-04  iron maiden: Hilarious. Ranks right up there with Edward Lasker's king-hunt a few years earlier. Actually, I think White might have sacrificed even more material than in that game.
Jan-20-09  WhiteRook48: great sacrifices.
Jan-31-09  WhiteRook48: wow, sac, sac, sac, sac, win. Like how Anderssen and Morphy play!
Jul-17-09  WhiteRook48: sacing like a madman
Jul-28-09  WhiteRook48: 22...Bxf2+ 23 Rxf2
Dec-07-10  Xeroxx: lol...

  Phony Benoni: The Reti Maneuver should be reserved for the endgame.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: White has won every (!) game in the database with this seemingly terrible piece sacrifice through 14.e5. However, this is also the last game in the database. Unjustly neglected or thoroughly refuted since 1920? Cannot deny that this is one of the funniest forced King marches ever, but methinks Black did not feel so amused.
Jun-03-16  The Kings Domain: An immortal from a place that isn't known for the game. Classic obscurity definitely worthy of its Game of the Day inclusion.

And the pun is grin-inducing too. :-)

Jun-03-16  pedro99: If you want to see how much punch the Evans Gambit used to pull, look through Tschigorin's games as White with it. Lasker and others found ways to tame it. It's still useful for weekend tournaments as a surprise weapon though.
Jun-03-16  rune ohlsson: After 15. --- Kf8, Black is winning.

Whites mistake is 11. Qb3. After 11. Qd1 it´s equal.

  kevin86: The black king is marched to the SW corner of the board and to be mated.
Jun-03-16  YetAnotherAmateur: <rune ohlsson> 15. ... Kf8 16. e6 with threats of Qf6+ and Nh4-g6, and Nd4, among others, and I'm not so convinced black is safe.
Jun-03-16  RandomVisitor: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ion Gudju (14 July 1897 – 1988) was a Romanian chess master.

Gudju represented Romania in 1st unofficial Chess Olympiad at Paris, where he became one of 15 founders of Fédération Internationale des Échecs (FIDE).[1] He played thrice in Chess Olympiads at The Hague 1928, Hamburg 1930, and Prague 1931.[2]

He took 4th at Hastings 1926/27 (B tournament, Georges Koltanowski won), took 2nd, behind Wechsler, at Bucharest 1927, took 4th at Bucharest 1928 (Sigmund Herland and Wechsler won), shared 2nd, behind Alexandru Tyroler, at Jassy 1929 (Romanian Chess Championship), took 5th and won at Bucharest 1929, and tied for 2nd-5th at Bucharest 1930 (Iosif Mendelssohn won).[3]

He was the Honorary Vice President of FIDE in 1982–1988.[4]

Jun-03-16  AlicesKnight: <pedro99> According to Horowitz, Steinitz positively wanted Tchigorin to play the Evans' in the WC matches - there are 8 in the 1889 one, with Tchigorin coming out 4.5 - 3.5 ahead, and 5.5 - 2.5 ahead in the 1892 rematch when again 8 were played (cf. CG database). All this to justify his new approach to chess thinking.
Jun-03-16  User not found: Wow! How many pieces did white sac there!? I love that ending. This reminds me of a Bronstein game I once went through, I think he was playing against some early computer effort.
Jun-03-16  john barleycorn: <AlicesKnight: ... All this to justify his new approach to chess thinking.>

Steinitz consider the Evans as a real test to his ideas as he wrote in his book "The modern chess instructor"

He promotes to a new game!

Jun-03-16  rune ohlsson: <YetAnotherAmateur> After 16. e6 Be8 I don´t se any problem. Don´t forget Black has a Bishop in hand.
