  Sneaky: What a comical game. I'm going to remember this one.
Jan-28-04  aboynamedgeorge: There is a similar line in the accelerated dragon with a e5 and then e6 pawn sac I believe!
Dec-07-04  Knight13: Nemet just missed it up. It's like nemet forgot how to play chess.
May-13-05  Akavall: Was Nemet playing sober?
Aug-25-05  THE pawn: Well, there is beeing inspired and...there is this game.
Feb-21-06  McCool: What was that?
Nov-18-06  Mocafi: 6. Bb2-Qxb2 7.Qc1-Qxc1 8.Rxc1 and white loses a bishop not a rook.But Black is still winning regardless.
Jun-02-07  dark dario: I know from stories that Nemet was tottally drunk in this game!!
Sep-01-08  Funicular: Dude, i dont think theres a faster way in chess to win a rook forcefully
Dec-29-08  YoungEd: I have a vague recollection that a similar motif appeared (at least in the notes) of a Fischer-Tal game, so I was able to see it. Cute game!
Aug-02-10  Andrijadj: In my language,"Grob" means tomb or grave. This is the exact description of effects of this opening.
Apr-14-11  Sho: dark dario "...Nemet was tottally drunk in this game!!"

*ahh* So many questions now get answered.

  FSR: Reminds me of another infamous five-move win by Black: K Shirazi vs J Peters, 1986.
Apr-14-11  pkkandel: too embarrassing for white i am sure.this is how one should be punished if he tries fancy things right from the beginning...i have no mercy on white
Jun-09-11  technical draw: 19 year old Nemet wasn't even an IM when he "played" this game. I came here because an opponent just played the g4-g5 line. I hope he follows this game!
Jan-16-12  King Death: < Andrijadj: In my language,"Grob" means tomb or grave...>

That's where White ended up pretty quick.

Jan-16-12  King Death: < YoungEd: I have a vague recollection that a similar motif appeared (at least in the notes) of a Fischer-Tal game..>

This is the game you mentioned: Fischer vs Tal, 1959. After 11.Nf5 Tal couldn't play 11...ef because of 12.Qd5 Ra7 13.Qd4.

Jun-04-12  YoungEd: Thanks, <King Death>!
Dec-04-14  nnnnnnnn: <technical draw>Nemet was not 19, he was 29 when he lost this game! Learn to count!
Dec-05-14  technical draw: <nnnnnnn> Thanks for that valuable lesson.

6. ♖b1 ♕e4 picks up a rook.

This has to to be the earliest example of a rook fork in a game.
