Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-18-04  InspiredByMorphy: Greco plays very well.
Mar-18-05  InspiredByMorphy: 5. ...exf4 makes no sense. 5. ...Nf6 is better.
Dec-21-05  Chopin: Greco in never content without a sacrifice; yet another slaughter.
Aug-10-08  just a kid: This was a slaughter!
Apr-02-10  The Rocket: I suspect this was a real game.

As usual Greco plays brilliant, but the opponent is completely oblivious to the danger of neglecting development.

Jul-01-14  Markvliegt: Scored 44 😊😊😊
Apr-30-17  Yigor: This kind of Delayed King's Gambit 5. f4 is not so bad but black should continue with 5...Qh4+ or 5...Nf6 in order to counter it.
Jun-10-20  mahaprabhu krishna: I suspect NN and Greco time travelled
