Nov-04-03  mjk: 4. Bg5? loses at least a piece.
Jul-01-04  marcus13: A la L├ęgal!
Mar-12-05  erasmus: the move 4.Bg5 will not necessarily lose a piece, but black will have an advantage. The bishop can be saved: 4.Bg5 Ne4 6.Be3 Bxe3 7.fxe3 Qh4+ 8.g3 Nxg3 9.Nf3 Qh6 10.Rg1. Black won a pawn and is positionally better. For a better continuation of 4.Bg5? with black see K Zimak vs Sobek Jaroslav, 1992
Apr-16-05  Zaius: 5. Bxd8 is the greediest move I've ever seen.

  Bishoprick: Milton Hanauer gave me my first job after graduating from college. Had fun for many years playing him (and Milton Finkelstein)over lunch. When I knew him he always played the Caro-Kan against e4, but he only played skittles. He had given up chess and had morphed into an avid bridge player on the second floor of the Marshall Chess Club. Thanks for reminding me of him in this silly miniature.
Feb-22-06  kevin86: Could this be ARNOLD the newsboy of Fred Flintstone-----Obvious it's not Arnold Ziffel,the pig;he is far smarter than this. lol
Feb-22-06  Jim Bartle: No, it's Tom Arnold, star of the famed documentary "The Stupids."
Aug-27-10  Lil Swine: its like a wall street tragedy, black gets the big money, then loses it all, a classical representation of greed and punishment, or like madoff, he scams a bunch of money and then is caught, chess is not only strategic and mind- blowing, but its also realistic

  Phony Benoni: The poor fellow playing White was <W. C. Arnold>. You can do with that as you wish, but apparently when it came to chess he was not outstanding in his Fields. Not to mention that, after the game, he probably would not rather have been in Philadelphia.

This was from a preliminary section of the 1936 American Chess Federation Congress (now known as the U.S. Open). Arnold finished last, scoring 1.5/12. I have no idea where he got the points. Hanauer finished fourth in the premilinary second, then 10th out of 12 players in the championship final.

Oct-29-14  sharpnova: @Zaius - How so?

I've seen people mated or at least really decisively punished for taking as little as a pawn.

Taking a whole queen for mate is less greedy than that.

  Phony Benoni: An early publication of the game from the "New York Evening Post", September 3??), 1936, though the loser's name is charitably disguised:

Dec-23-15  pumping707: Good trap....looking forward to use it for my greedy friends...lols
Dec-23-15  epistle: One of life's greatest pleasures: to hold the queen in your hand.

  Phony Benoni: Hey, guess what? <4.Bg5> was an attempt at a theoretical improvement!

Not much of an improvement, perhaps, but it looks like Fred did his homework. Too bad the dog didn't eat it.
