Nov-01-08  Zorts: Black castled 'into' it. Wouldn't 11.d6 be better?
Nov-16-08  Silverstrike: <Zorts> That drops the g7 pawn and allows white to check on e1 if he wishes... but you're right I can't see an immediate mate.

  Fusilli: The attack has a strong similarity with today's game of the day: C Jauregui vs J Souza-Mendes, 1959
Feb-02-09  dwavechess: 16/20 with rybka 2.3.2a at 14 ply f. for karjakin
Feb-17-09  m0nkee1: 8Nf5 is a nice move , black seems all tied up and has to castle himself into even more trouble, very nice. I can't see a way out for black where they can guard the g7 pawn. If Nxg7 is a forced mate, then he may have won on move 8?
Mar-01-11  picard: <Salarus> maybe instead of 12 ...KxN black could try b6 with the idea of targeting g2 with the bishop and also the queen and/or a rook. (for example, the queen could target g2 from c2 once the white queen moves, and the rook can attack g2 from g8 once the king moves to h8) Black has to try for some sort of counterplay against the white king right away because white will quickly attack the hole on g7. In any case i believe 12. b6 would make the game last longer than 20 moves.

  Penguincw: A quick victory by Sergey Karjakin.
Dec-08-11  Nemesistic: I Just noticed this game,and i'm not familiar with this opening but does anyone know why Black didn't play 6..Qxe4?

Is the Pawn poisoned,because i just can't see if so.

Nice little Game though,8.Nf5 was a slick little move

  Gilmoy: <Nemesistic: 6..Qxe4?> 7.Ndb5, forcing an eventual Kd8. White has easy development O-O, Re1, Bf3. Black's Q must lose 1 more tempo, while his Ra8 is likely unavailable even for midgame defense.

Goofball line: 7..Bxc3+ 8.bxc3 Kd8 9.O-O a6? 10.Bf3 Qa4 11.Nd6!? <just to blockade d7 forever> cxd6 12.Qxd6 Nf6 13.Ba3 Re8 14.Rfe1 threatening a simple removal-of-guard 15.Bxc6. Black's Q-side is frozen so badly, White isn't down a piece, he's "up" a R.

Aug-09-12  Cemoblanca: Nice execution by Sergey The Kid! ;0)
Oct-05-12  hugogomes: 0-0 isn't the sac.

  Richard Taylor: This combination had already, by the time Karjakin played it, been played twice before. It's likely it was preparation by White.

No it is (more or less) the main line of this subline of the Scotch.

After 6. .... Qxe4 7. Ndb5 Bxc3+ 8. bxc3 Kd8 9. 0-0 and if now 8. ... d6 9. Nxd6 is one idea (Smeets-Piliester, 2003).

Mar-13-16  The Kings Domain: Highly impressive victory by the pre-teen Karjakin. Admirable foresight and execution.
Apr-01-16  Rama: <<PaulLovric: Sergey the next men"s world champ?>>

Gonna be fun finding out. :)

  Richard Taylor: Karjakin played this over the board not knowing the Nf5 move had been played before. But Black went wrong of course...

According to IM Gary Lane who told me (earlier this year) he has written two books on the Scotch.

Nov-12-16  morfishine: Another dumb game title, 12 yrs old is hardly a kid
Nov-12-16  john barleycorn: < morfishine: Another dumb game title, 12 yrs old is hardly a kid>

Childhood (being a kid) lasts until 14 years of age (puberty). upon and after 14 years of age a "kid" can be jailed for a crime.

However, stupidity is not a crime so you are safe

Nov-12-16  Absentee: <john barleycorn: < morfishine: Another dumb game title, 12 yrs old is hardly a kid>

In many cases it lasts much, much longer than that, sometimes even until death.

That is true in the case of our resident <pun assessor>.
