Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-13-04  Knight13: Blunder is 11... Nxg3.
Sep-13-04  Giancarlo: NN has many problems in this game.

1)4..Bxg1. Trading a developed piece for a non-developed piece.

2)9..nh5, again, lack of development.
better is 0-0 or even nc6/d6

3)11..nxg3?? Obvious blunder.

4)It's NN, what do you expect?

Sep-13-04  John Doe: The queen is trapped otherwise, so it's the only "saving" move.
Mar-02-05  InspiredByMorphy: If 4. ...Bxg1? was going to be played it should at least been followed by 5. ...d6 .
Oct-20-05  DeepBlade: Bishop's Opening, Lopez Variation looks like an odd opening to me.

The Black Queen shouldnt be developed like that, and Black's defence is a real disaster. Greco sets up a nice attack, kudos.

  TheTamale: Ugh, Greco misses mate in one. 15, Bg5 mate.
Feb-13-09  WhiteRook48: 12. Qf3+ was obvious
Apr-19-17  Yigor: ChessOK evaluations: 2. Bc4 (Bishop's opening, +0.04) Bc5 (Boi variation, +0.07) 3. Qe2 (Lopez variation, +0.00). Stockfish evaluations (d=25): 3...Qe7 (Symmetrical Lopez, +0.11) 4. f4 (Delayed King's Gambit, -0.06) Bxg1?! (+0.19). So, 4...Bxg1?! is an inaccuracy which is clear without computer evaluations. 5. Rxg1 exf4?! (Delayed KGA, +0.67).

PSCC: 2E --> 2Ee --> 2EFe (KG) --> 6Fe3f*2E (KGA).
