Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-30-04  InspiredByMorphy: An alternate plan for black is 3.Nc6 4.d4 exd4 5.Nxd4 Bb4 the move 3.Nc3 should not be disregarded. It may even be a better response to 2.f6 than 3.Nxe5.
Mar-30-04  seoulmama: O' dear God... this game is absolutely horrifying...
Apr-28-04  beenthere240: One has to admire the bold way black seizes the initiative on the 7th move.
May-04-05  Jaymthegenius: O.K, a match: Ruy Lopez vs. Jeridi Walid? My money would be on Walid!
May-04-05  Jaymthegenius: And wasnt there a quote from the 1500's "Chesse, it is supposed to be a game of logic, but he who playes the kings bishop pawn on the second move at the kings pawn game contradict's such a rule, weakening the kings diagonal, allowing a knight sacrifice!" It was quoted in trap's and zap's.
May-04-05  chess man: I don't know what to say about this game except that it was short.

  WannaBe: <TheAlchemist> Don't know if I want to groan or chuckle. 8-))
May-04-05  hintza: <TheAlchemist> Congratulations, that is a supreme pun.

What happened here? 3.Nc3?

May-04-05  schnarre: 3. Nc3 was hardly an effective reply, even though White did win (so much for "bad" Bishops).
May-07-05  chess man: If I was playing a weaker opponent then I would most likely play after (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 f6) 3.Nxe5 fxe5 4.Qh5+. Most experienced players know not to play 4...g6?? because of 5.Qxe5+ which wins the Rook. I have only played against (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 f6) very seldom.
May-07-05  schnarre: I saw a recent setup where Black did play 4...g6?? yet still wound up with a fighting game (Black still lost, but the scrappiness of it surprised me): after 4...g6 it went 5. Qxe5+ Qe7 6. Qxh8 Qg7 7.Qxg7 Bxg7 8. d4 Ne7 9. Bc4 Nbc6 10.0-0 d6 11. Nc3 Bd7 12. Re1 0-0-0 & Black though still fighting an uphill battle fought it out to move 37 before concedeing defeat.
Nov-02-05  prinsallan: Brilliant play by Black - NOOOOT.
This is one of those games that prove to me that some days you shouldnīt play Chess, in fact, maybe it would have been better to stay in bed this day.
Nov-02-05  EmperorAtahualpa: I'm glad this is Walid's only game in the database. :)
Nov-02-05  geaux82: This is very interesting, and very instructive game. Black's opening is so sucks. He gots 5 pawn moves and both bishops attacking too early the king, before any knight moves. This is "Mysterious Order of Jeridi's Knights".

Also, you seeing the idea of 11.Bh6? This leading White into absolute winning position, no matter who's move is it!!! And by absolute winning position I mean that Black is checkmated!

Nov-03-05  prinsallan: <geaux82> Cool with the 11. Bh6 remark. I hadnīt seen that before, but man I think you are right. If it is white to move the checkmate is the text move.

If it were Blacks turn, best would be: 11... h5 which should lead to a long struggle, but white still has a winning game, if there is a fast check mate after h5, I am missing something...

Nov-03-05  prinsallan: Another variation if black were to move again at move 11... Kg7

12. Qh5 h6
13. Ng6 Ng8
14. Nxh8 Qf6
15. Bxg8 Kxg8
16. Re8+ Bf8
17. Bxh6 Na6
18. Rae1 d6
19. Bxf8 Rxe8
20. Rxe8 Bc6
21. Nd5 Bxe8
22. Nxf6+ Kxf8
23. Qxe8+ Kg7
24. Qf7+ Kxh8
25. Qg8#

A pretty sight, ehhh? :D

Jan-13-06  schnarre: Quite!
Jan-10-09  WhiteRook48: serious pun potential: "This game is not valid"
Mar-26-09  WhiteRook48: not very walid
