  InspiredByMorphy: Incredible game! It looks as though Greco was offering his opponent to play the Muzio gambit hundreds of years before its time. After 6.Nc3 black can respond with 6. ...g4 and whites knight has nowhere useful to go. Therefore 7.O-O gxf3 8.Qxf3 looks like what Greco would have intended to play had black responded with 6. ...g4 . He would have played a mean Muzio gambit! 10.Ne5 and especially 15.Bxf4 are impressive moves.
Jul-18-05  sneaky pete: As usual, black is very co-operative wirh 14... Kf8? and 15... Nxh5?
Jul-27-06  Oldrey: the move 10 Ne5 is a mistake. After 10... dxe5 11 Qh5 Qf6 12 dxe5 Qg7 13 e6 Bxe6 14 Bxe6 Nf6 15 Bxf7+ Kf8 16 Qg6 Qxf7 black wins
Jun-22-11  Llawdogg: 15 Bxf4! was a beautiful queen sacrifice!
Jul-30-12  Sebastian88: 14. ... Ke7! And over is the game.
Better was: 10. e5 d5 11. Qd3! = (-0.12) If. 11. ... dxc4? Qh7
Apr-20-13  dchrist: king safety first! 15...ke7! stay alive to fight on.
Apr-22-17  Yigor: After 14. fxe7 black was winning with evaluation -3.5 approximatively. 14...Kf8?? is an enormous blunder leading to a position with eval., at least, +7. Nevertheless, 15. Bf4!! is a truly beautiful sacrifice found by Greco.

  tamar: The Washington Generals of chess NN deserves a lot of credit for Greco's record.
Sep-12-17  RKnight: <sneaky pete: As usual, black is very co-operative with 14... Kf8? and 15... Nxh5?>. Yes 14...Kf8? was a blunder, but note that 15...gxf4 also leads to Greco mating with 16 Qc5#. After 15 Bxf4! NN is in dire straights.
