Oct-10-03  Helloween: The famous Englund swindle mate in action.
Oct-11-03  Yuri54: Anytime i used to play this gambit, even if i ended up with a gain in material, i eventually lost the game. I tend to stay away from this opening, with the exception that i'm bored and i feel like getting my but whipped by a computer. This curse is worse than the Boston Red Sox and Babe Ruth, jeez now i feel bad.
Feb-22-05  raydot: Worth remembering, seems like a good game to use on Yahoo! or Pogo chess.
Aug-13-09  LIFE Master AJ: added it
Aug-13-09  LIFE Master AJ: The above comment was ... perhpas lazy. See the page, Game Collection: Quick K.O.'s / Opening Traps, for what I am talking about.
Jan-21-13  newzild: Even 7. Qxa1 wins the exchange and a pawn.
Feb-11-13  jancotianno: Haha, I've had this mate as black... twice!

  Infohunter: I never have played this from either side. Maybe I ought to try it as Black sometime.
Aug-11-19  Granny O Doul: A victim of this trap once wrote a letter to Chess Life asking about it, mentioning that his opponent told him it was the "Garbage Gambit". That can't have been much consolation to learn.
