Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-02-05  schnarre: Not too bad a game for Black (despite a few slips)!
Nov-02-05  prinsallan: One of the best games in the damiano data base for black. Still its a solid loss.

The lesson?
For black: Never ever play the Damiano.
For white: If opponent plays the Damiano, let him/her.

Nov-02-05  EmperorAtahualpa: What exactly is the Damiano?
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <Emperor> the Damiano is 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 f6, after which White's best reply is 3.Bc4, rather than 3.Nxe5, which I recall playing when I was about 1100 back in 1973.
Nov-03-05  EmperorAtahualpa: Thanks <perfidious>
Nov-03-05  schnarre: If you do play the Damiano be carefull & make certain you are good & ready for the challenge!
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: Just realised that my remark was open to interpretation......

It was 3.Nxe5 that I played, not Bc4.

Nov-08-05  schnarre: We understand (mistakes happen).
Nov-16-05  prinsallan: Extra note: Even if you are a solid player, dont ever play this defense against other solid players since most know how to undermine the Damiano defense, even if they never played against it before. The pawns just seems to scream: "Attack me, attack me!" :D
Nov-16-05  schnarre: Most do!
