Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-03-05  InspiredByMorphy: 7. ...d5 was blacks best reply. 7. ...Ng8? allows white to dominate the rest of the game with ease.
May-26-05  Jaymthetactician: why not 11...gxh6?
May-26-05  Jaymthetactician: correction: checkmate
Nov-27-05  DeepBlade: Can someone analyze with Fritz or something, what happens if 9. ...cxd6 please?
Apr-18-06  SJP: <DeepBlade>
Nothing special. 10. exd6 Ng6 11. 0-0 Nf8 12. Re1+ Ne6 is a decent defence. An interesting try at attacking it is 13. Qa4 Kf8 14. Nc3 Nf6 15. Be3 Bxe3 16. Rxe3 Qb6, but White cannot really make his advantage count. 7...Ng8? was, as noted, a horrible move.
Jun-11-06  DeepBlade: <SJP> Thanks, I had a feeling it was a reasonable defence, and it is now confirmed by your analysis. 7. ...Ng8 as all ''backward'' development moves are bad.
Feb-13-07  Prokofiev fan: 6...Bb6 wasn't to great either.
Sep-26-07  wolfmaster: <Prokofiev fan> Arguably, Black's problems began with 6...Bb6. Definitely not the best move.
Nov-19-07  aazqua: Yes. Bb4 followed by 0-0 seems fine. These games are so dumb.
Apr-07-10  libertyjack: Black simply forgot to play actively and got totaly exploded by white two central pawns. Nice example.
Jul-02-15  Gottschalk: 7 d5 Ne7 8 e5 Ne4 9 d6! cxd8 10 cxd6 Nxf2 11 Qb3 Nxh1 12 Bxf7+ Kf8 13 Bg5 1-0 was seen in Sander Van Eijk vs Anoek Zomer_ Hengelo U12 open 1998. But 7 d5 0-0 8 dxc6 Nxe4 9 0-0 bxc6 is playable, with slight adv. to White.
