Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-10-04  Knight13: Wow. It's very well calculated for the sacrifice 28. Bxa7+!
Dec-10-04  drukenknight: hardly impressive since he should have won on move 7.
Dec-10-04  Knight13: <hardly impressive since he should have won on move 7.> 7. gxh7+! Ke7 8. Ng6+ forks the King and rook.
Dec-10-04  drukenknight: ...??
Dec-10-04  Knight13: Oops. A mistake. Forget about the Knight attacking the Queen.

<drukenknight: hardly impressive since he should have won on move 7.> What's your answer to this?

Dec-10-04  drukenknight: U should learn this one on your own, believe it or not, this sort of trap actually shows up once in a while in lots of stuff like....well lots of stuff trust me, it does. (there is Morphy game w/ it I think; then there is the Fred defense, then black does it in the NimzoIndian, Budapest, etc.)

Hint: it's called "rebirth." something to remember it by.

Dec-10-04  InspiredByMorphy: Poor opening by black. <Knight 13> 7.g7+ Nxh5 8.gxh8=Q wins. I think this is what drukenknight was referring to.
Dec-10-04  drukenknight: yes. you should make a note of it.
Dec-10-04  InspiredByMorphy: <Knight13> Qh5+ is a common theme in the Freds defense. 1.e4 f5 2.exf5 Nf6 is necessary if your going to play it. In this game 4. ...Nf6 was necessary.
Dec-10-04  Knight13: Thank you, <InspiredByMorphy>.
