May-16-04  dac1990: What the...?
Jul-27-04  sergeidave: It looks like this Claude Frizzel Bloodgood really likes playing 1.G4! He has a lot of won games with this uncommon opening!
Feb-16-05  schnarre: Black's position is bad, but hardly resignable at this stage.
Feb-16-05  ranchogrande: a very interesting reply to 1.g4.e5(!),
2.Bg2(?) is Ne7(!) with the idea to go Ng6-h4 with black advantage , due to the very weak black squares in whites position.This Blood guy may be interessting ,but his opponents...
Feb-16-05  Leviathan: <schnarre> You've got to be a real fighter! But black is a rook and a pawn down, his king isn't safe at all and he has no way to win/equalize quickly.
Feb-16-05  schnarre: <Leviathan> Nobody won by resigning (I agree with Larry Evans there)!
Feb-17-05  Leviathan: <Nobody won by resigning> Agreed, but there is a limit. Black's position is absolutely hopeless and playing on would have been totally pointless.
Feb-17-05  crafty: 10. ... ♕d7 11. e3 ♖d8 12. ♘a3 ♕d5 13. ♕xd4   (eval 5.81; depth 12 ply; 250M nodes)
Feb-17-05  schnarre: <crafty> I had looked at 10...Qd7 11. e3 Be2 12. Nxe2 Nf3+ 13. Kd1 Kf6 but Black is still in hot water. <Leviathan> This game is a White victory in any case; Black has lost too much. 3...e6 was a mistake, & allowing White to get in Bxf7+ soon after cliched it.
Sep-23-05  halcyonteam: Grob attack is something tht works the first time, and its efficiency decreaces as the opponent learn more and more about the traps...and revenge with enough preparation.
Jan-09-06  DeepBlade: One little question, total unrelated, but why is this the Fritz gambit? Is it about the chess engine Fritz or just a name of the inventor?
Jan-11-06  schnarre: <DeepBlade> Probably a typo.
Jan-11-06  DeepBlade: hahaha :D

This isnt a game, this just shows an lost exchange!

  Domdaniel: The Fritz in question is the 19th century player Alexander Fritz.

The Fritz variation of the Two Knights Defence, 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 d5 5.exd5 Nd4!? is also named after him.

If you check his biog here in chessgames.com, you'll find that his playing career lasted 108 years - a game in 1800, then a long gap until 1866, then many more games.

One theory is that Alexander Fritz was actually a time traveler from the 22nd century, using his microscopic Deep Fritz 223 implant to beat up those unsuspecting 19th century patzers.
