Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-18-03  Rookpawn: White's Bishop sacrifice is similar to the knight sacrifice in Damiano's Defense: 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 f6? 3. Nxe5! fxe5 4. Qh5+ Ke7 5. Qxe5+ etc.
Mar-18-03  KrokoKorchnoi: when the unrated are playing, what is there to expect? Or was it a skittles??
Jun-21-04  Hektor: The result really isn't suprising when you notice that black has not developed a single piece aside from his queen.
Aug-11-04  maildog: Such a shame. Openings gone wrong.
Nov-02-04  Eatman: Hmm, fxe5 is by no means forced, so while Bxe5 is a good move it by no means decides the game. In fact while black might stand slightly worse, they wouldn't necessarily be lost after Bxb4 or Qe7 getting the pawn back. Probably Bxb4 first.
Nov-02-04  Zaius: According to Fritz 8, 7...d5 is evaluated at (-1.42):

7...d5 8.exd5 Bd6 9.dxc6+ Kf8 10.cxb7 Bxb7 11.Qe6 Qf6 12.Kf1 Nc6 13.c3 Ne5 14.Na3 Qxe6 (-1.42) Depth: 14/47

And according to Fritz, it's the bishop sacrifice that puts white down in the first place. I'm not saying anyone is wrong here, just passing on some interesting info.

Premium Chessgames Member Eatman you are 100% right, we're going to pass over this daily puzzle and move right on to the next one. Thanks for pointing that out.
Feb-16-05  schnarre: <Rookpawn> This certainly does resemble the sacrifice vs Damiano's Defense--with similar results too!
Mar-17-09  TheTamale: The raw attacking power of the Polish Opening unleashed!
Mar-17-09  WhiteRook48: 11. d6+ is an excellent <DISCOVERED CHECK.>
