  jaime gallegos: amazing ! it could be done in another openings i guess...
Aug-24-03  Shadout Mapes: this is one of the greatest minatures I've seen in a while! White threatens forks everywhere!
Aug-24-03  sleepkid: oh... if only my games against the french would go like this. It is the one opening that is my achilles heel. Nothing else bothers me. . .
Aug-25-03  slimslam: Have you ever tried the "French Wing
Gambit"? How about this most inspiring
line: 1.e4 e6 2.Nf3 d5 3.e5 c5 4.b4 cxb4 5.d4 Nc6 6.a3 f6 7.axb4 fxe5 8.b5 Nxd4 9.Nxe5 Qh4 10.g4 ! Baretic (!)played this in 1974.
He opened my eyes for the beauty of
that gambit.
Aug-25-03  sleepkid: Looks like fun. You should upload that game if you have it in PGN format. I'd really like to see it. I sometimes play the Wing Gambit in the Sicilian, but hadn't really considered it for the French.
Aug-25-03  slimslam: I uploaded that game yesterday and I hope it worked.
The french wing gambit seems to me better than the sicilian way, because the black bishop c8 cannot be activated. However if you have the line 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 then you have the chance to get the french line playing 3.b4 cxb4 4. d4 d5 5.e5 and so on.

  jaime gallegos: the french was described by Lucena in 1492. Its not my Achilles heel , but the Nimzovich variant 1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. e5 c5 5. a3 Bxc3+ 6. bc is the most dangerous to me. The early movement Qg4 is amazing. Look one Kasparov-Korchnoi game playing the french

  jaime gallegos: if you wanna see Wing Gambit on the Sicilian Frank James Marshall-H Rogosin 1940 is a good example !

  kevin86: The queen is trapped by four minor pieces! Artful! A capture on any of the "undefended" pieces results in a sharp stab of the fork!
Jul-19-07  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Every white's move after 7...e4? is a pure enjoyment to watch :) <enjoying...> <enjoying...> <enjoying...> ...
Dec-04-08  WhiteRook48: Wow... at first I thought Black could play Qxb5, but then Nxc7+... wow... NN's Queen goes back in the box...
Dec-23-08  WhiteRook48: moral: do not bring the queen out early
Jan-24-09  WhiteRook48: nice game
Feb-05-09  WhiteRook48: just how amazing how the queen is attacked at the end
