Dec-16-04  Halfmatje: Why 9. Kd2 instead of g3?

  tpstar: <Halfmatje> 9. g3? Qe4+ & 10 ... Qxh1. This motif shows up frequently as an opening trap, particularly the King's Gambit and the Damiano Defense.
Dec-17-04  azaris: Leave it to Biever to fall into this old trick.
Dec-17-04  clendenon: Very good <azaris>. I guess cassidy will just have to hop-along with his win.
Jan-05-09  WhiteRook48: hmmm... nice game. Of course white must avoid 8. Rxg1?? Bg4+
